Perhaps we should have an SDR forum on QRZ.com?

    Well it only took two weeks, pretty fast! It's not the blister pack as shown, just the items in bubble wrap.
    SDR# is too resource-heavy for my older laptop. It looks snazzy, but the audio is really garbled.
    HDSDR is a better match for this machine and picked up FM broadcast and NOAA WX easily.
    Not hearing much else yet with the included antenna. Neat toy for under $9, may prove to be handy with more experimentation.

    HDSDR is my software of choice. It seems to work best, and absolutely is the most visually appealing. SDR# has some excellent plug-ins though... Let's you do things you can't do with HDSDR like scanning. Nothing that I use, but many people do.

    Got a splitter today, so I can run two dongles on one antenna.

    Besides dual-listening ability, it also allows side-by-side comparisons.

    It's nice to be able to monitor two systems at once. I should have bought a splitter months ago!
