Hi Steve,

I'm using an older dongle from rtl-sdr.com, it does 24 MHz to ~1.8 GHz. I added a heat sink and mounted in a shielded enclosure and it works pretty good. The new version 3 they have does HF and is supposed to work even better. Reviews I've seen indicate it works well. They're only about $20.


There's also the sdr-play for about $150 or less, it has a higher sampling rate and covers 10 kHz to 2GHz. rtl-sdr.com has reviews on the various SDR's available.

As for using it in Linux, I've created a guide for that.

It's a lot fun if you like radio & computers, definitely worth the $20.
