FUNcube SDR Dongles available March 16
A new batch of FUNcube VHF/UHF SDR Dongles, featured in the April issue of Practical Wireless magazine, will be available Wednesday, March 16, at 22:00 UT.
The FUNcube Software Defined Radio (SDR) Dongle was developed as part of the AMSAT-UK FUNcube satellite project.
Covering 64 - 1700MHz, it connects to the USB port of a PC. They cost about £125 and a proportion of the sales goes to support AMSAT-UK's FUNcube satellite. So far over 500 have been sold around the world.
You need a verified PayPal account to order one and due to demand, the ordering window on previous batches has only lasted a minute, so set your watch accurately.
