Let me guess... effectively an RTL dongle / HF converter with a Pride of China Android tablet?

Sorry if I sound cynical  ;D

Are there many stations that broadcast in DRM? I know AIR does.

I don't think DRM really had a chance to be popular. Not
many DRM capable receivers have been available.

Huh... I've actually did put in a pre-order on the Titus II over 4 years ago, and haven't heard crap for at least 3. So, has anyone heard anything about this portable? It would still be a nice novelty to have, but with tech marching on, it will soon be ancient history. If you ask me, this project is a loss.
Don't accuse me of judging a book by it's cover. I'll read the Table Of Contents.

Re: Titus II DRM? Should we even bother, at this point?

Apparently, they have some newer, yet sketchy, info on the Titus II.    https://www.rtl-sdr.com/is-the-titus-ii-portable-android-tablet-shortwave-sdr-close-to-release/      At this point, tech has marched-on to where there are better alternatives. I say, stop teasing us!
