SDR - Software Defined Radio / Re: SDRplay setup

That's straightforward! Thanks --

It appears the SMA male that came with the kit is too large. i assume I'll have to try RadioShack or Amazon for the right fit.

Not sure what the diameter size is on the SDRP. The kit says it's a BNC to SMA adapter...

SDR - Software Defined Radio / SDRplay setup
« on: September 19, 2016, 2352 UTC »
I just purchased SDRPlay. Unfortunately, I'm not a techie at all and I think I'm in over my head.

I bought a "quick and dirty" antenna kit https://www.amazon.com/Usmile%C2%AE-Portable-shortwave-antenna-stations/dp/B0141X3B5W/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1474328930&sr=8-2&keywords=shortwave+radio+antenna
Unfortunately, the directions really don't tell how to hook this up. Separately I bought the right coax which is hooked between
my PC and the SDRPlay. But I don't understand how the longwire is supposed to connect to the SDRP. Any help appreciated!
Thank you.
