SDR - Software Defined Radio / cheapest usb hf sdr stick?
« on: January 19, 2015, 1719 UTC »
allright.  i guess i'm ready to experiment with another sdr dealybop.  i already have a "funcube dongle pro" usb stick and have sparingly used it along with the HDSDR program to listen to freqs in the 400 mhz range.  i'd like to now purchase an el cheapo usb stick which will allow me to listen to and record, hf communications of at least 1-30 mhz using my HDSDR program.  which would be the cheapest usb stick to get which i could use with my HDSDR program which would allow me to record at least 500 kc's of bandswath to my hard drive?  what limits the amount of bandswath i'm able to record to my hardrive, the particular usb stick i'd be using or the HDSDR program?  confused about that.  and of course, the more it's "plug & play," the better.

any and all help appreciated.  regards, scott.

KCPR, 2-24-14, 0318-0341*, 6.925.1 AM and then 6.924.9, hearing music at 0318 but signal is way down buried beneath the noise.  hearing music again at 0328 and a little lower in freq. now at 6.924.9.  heard music right up until the sstv started.  the levels on the sstv seemed quite a bit higher than the other audio.  propagation wasn't quite as good as last nite.

0040 UTC hearing programming consisting of a bunch of laughing and dialog.  Thought I even heard some crowd laughter at one time.  Talk of "San Diego" at 0048.  Poor copy here.  S3-4.  Whatever it was seems to be gone at 0049.
