    I have an LG V30 android phone with a USB-C port.

    I am looking for suggestions on a device to use my SDR play with my android phone. Ideally one that would allow for a power connection at the same time as I connected the SDR.

    I tried a Lenovo USB-C hub which seems to be built for a laptop and it does not appear to work reliability with an android phone.

    Any suggestions?

    Amazon has lots of OTG cables on offer. It's a good idea to get one that also supplies power back to the phone as the sdr will kill the battery pretty quickly otherwise.

    Nothing special is required; I have a couple of OTG cables here and they work just fine with my dongles and RSPs.

    regards, Roy
