What is RTL-SDR?

RTL-SDR is a very cheap ~$25 USB dongle that can be used as a computer based radio scanner for receiving live radio signals in your area (no internet required). Depending on the particular model it could receive frequencies from 500 kHz up to 1.75 GHz. Most software for the RTL-SDR is also community developed, and provided free of charge.

The origins of RTL-SDR stem from mass produced DVB-T TV tuner dongles that were based on the RTL2832U chipset. With the combined efforts of Antti Palosaari, Eric Fry and Osmocom (in particular Steve M) it was found that the raw I/Q data on the RTL2832U chipset could be accessed directly, which allowed the DVB-T TV tuner to be converted into a wideband software defined radio via a custom software driver developed by Steve M. If you've ever enjoyed the RTL-SDR project please consider donating to Osmocom via Open Collective.

Over the years since its discovery RTL-SDR has become extremely popular and has democratized access to the radio spectrum. Now anyone including hobbyists on a budget can access the radio spectrum. It's worth noting that this sort of scanner capability would have cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars just a few years ago. The RTL-SDR is also sometimes referred to as RTL2832U, DVB-T SDR, DVB-T dongle, RTL dongle, or the "cheap software defined radio".

There are now many other software defined radios better than the RTL-SDR, but they all come at a higher price. Currently we think that the Airspy ($169) and SDRPlay ($99) SDR's are the best low cost RX only SDR's. There is also the HackRF ($300USD) which can both transmit and receive.

What is Software Defined Radio?

Radio components such as modulators, demodulators and tuners are traditionally implemented in hardware components. The advent of modern computing and analogue to digital converters allows most of these traditionally hardware based components to be implemented into software instead. Hence, the term software defined radio. This enables easy signal processing and thus cheap wide band scanner radios to be produced.

What are some RTL-SDR Radio Scanner Applications?

The RTL-SDR can be used as a wide band radio scanner. Applications include:

What is the RTL-SDR frequency range?

This is dependent on the particular tuner variant used in the dongle, and the particular implementation. Some dongles, like our RTL-SDR Blog V3 also utilize the direct sampling mode which can enable reception below 28 MHz.

Tuner

Frequency range

Elonics E4000

52 – 2200 MHz with a gap from 1100 MHz to 1250 MHz (varies)

Rafael Micro R820T/2 24 – 1766 MHz (Can be improved to ~13 - 1864 MHz with experimental drivers)

Fitipower FC0013

22 – 1100 MHz

Fitipower FC0012

22 – 948.6 MHz

FCI FC2580

146 – 308 MHz and 438 – 924 MHz (gap in between)

Table Source: Osmocom

As you can see from the table, the Elonics E4000 and Rafael Micro R820T dongles have the greatest frequency range.

What is the RTL-SDRs sample rate?

The maximum sample rate is 3.2 MS/s (mega samples per second). However, the RTL-SDR is unstable at this rate and may drop samples. The maximum sample rate that does not drop samples is 2.4 MS/s, however some people have had luck with 2.8MS/s and 3.2 MS/s working well on some USB 3.0 ports.

What is the RTL-SDR's ADC resolution?

The native resolution is 8 bits, but the Effective Number of Bits (ENOB) is estimated at ~7. Decimation in software may raise this value.

What is the RTL-SDR input impedance?

Since these dongles are intended for TV, most dongles will have an input impedance of approximately 75 Ohms, although it is unlikely to be exactly 75 Ohms over the entire frequency range.

Remember that the mismatch loss when using 50 Ohm cabling on a 75 Ohm input will be very minimal at less than 0.177 dB.

The 75 Ohm impedance for the R820T can be checked on the datasheet which can be downloaded here.

However, newer dongles that come with SMA connectors will be 50 Ohms.

What are the minimum PC requirements?

Generally, at least a dual core processor of some sort will be required for most general GUI based software defined radio software. Command line tools and ADS-B decoders may work with less powerful hardware. Single board PCs like the Raspberry Pi 3, and Android mobile devices can also run several applications.

What dongle should I buy?

The cheapest, most common and generally best performing dongle at the moment is the Rafael Micro R820T2. It can be bought for about $20 USD.

6/17/2018

About RTL-SDR - rtl-sdr.com

The Elonics E4000 used to be the most common, but Elonics has closed and ceased chip production, making the E4000 rarer and much more expensive these days. Note that there seems to be a misconception that the E4000 is better than the R820T2 because it costs more - this is not the case, the increased cost is only due to its rarity.

The R820T2 is generally regarded as having better performance and sensitivity for most interesting frequencies compared to the E4000. For ADS-B, the R820T2 is much more sensitive at 1090 MHz. There are now also the R820T2 dongles, which offer increased sensitivity over the R820T2. For these reasons, the R820T2 is currently the recommended dongle, unless you need the higher frequencies that the E4000 provides and are willing to pay a premium price.

Be careful when buying a dongle as certain sellers tend to misrepresent their devices (knowingly or unknowingly) as having compatible tuners, when in fact they may send out a device with an incompatible tuner. Also be wary when buying E4000 dongles from auction sites as there are many dodgy sellers incorrectly advertising R820T2 dongles as the rare E4000.

See our RTL-SDR store page for more information about where to obtain dongles from reputable sources. We now sell our own "RTL-SDR Blog V3" dongles which come with several key improvements for the SDR crowd and we recommend these for users who want to mainly use their dongle for SDR.

I already have a USB TV Tuner, is it Compatible?

If your TV tuner contains an RTL2832U chip it is probably compatible. If it does not contain this chip, it is not

Who owns RTL-SDR?

No person or company owns RTL-SDR and all it's supported software and hardware in it's entirety. However, it was the combined efforts of Antti Palosaari, Eric Fry and Osmocom (in particular Steve M) who first discovered that certain TV dongles could be used for SDR. Osmocom in particular developed the first RTL-SDR driver which was released as open source.

Since then RTL-SDR has become a community based phenomenon. Certain companies such as us at RTL-SDR Blog have taken it upon ourselves to produce our own flavor of RTL-SDR dongles that perform better than the standard TV dongle. But none of it is possible without the wider community development behind all the free software.

People Behind RTL-SDR:

Original pioneering discoverers: Antti Palosaari, Eric Fry and Osmocom. In particular Steve M from Osmocom who developed the first driver. Hardware Sellers: Chinese factories producing and selling generic TV dongles, sellers of improved hardware like RTL-SDR Blog. Community Software/Hardware Devs: Anyone who has created software for the RTL-SDR, or has discovered and documented a hardware hack for the RTL-SDR. Community Bloggers: RTL-SDR Blog, and other bloggers/content creators who write and popularize RTL- SDR applications. Wider Community: Anyone using RTL-SDRs.

What is RTL-SDR Blog?

RTL-SDR.com (RTL-SDR Blog) started as a place for us to upload our RTL-SDR tutorials and to curate all other RTL-SDR related content onto a single blog. Since its inception we have continued to expand and have written many tutorials, written a guide book and started the signal identification wiki.

Hi Mohammed,

This is probably not compatible with RTL-SDR drivers.

Most dongles that are compatible are advertised for receiving DVB and DAB broadcasting, these are both digital formats. The dongle you link to is for analog reception (probably PAL or SECAM) and looks to be several-generations-old technology given its requirements (Pentium 4).

You may find that it can receive FM analog broadcasting, as some analog dongles could do that.

I also hear people talking on my xp but on win 7…all i hear is the normal noises when decoding. I have everything set up the same i think…ive messed with volumes and input audio levels and nothing but errors. Im using the latest rtl-sdr dongle. Will hdsdr work on win 7???

AFAIK, the RLT2832 chip does the DVB-T demodulation on-chip. The fact that it is also capable of outputting raw IQ is a happy accident for us, but it is not capable of doing it at full ADC bandwidth.

Those that are saying that they’re being electronically harassed experience the same things with the same symptoms. The human body just does not behave in the ways that this technology can cause.

The frequencies are likely in the biologically resonant frequency range of the human mind, that’s between 400 and 500 MHz.

I’ve actually detected using the rtl sdr and some code that I wrote a fascinating signal at a very specific frequency in that range that I’m reradiating.

If I’m reradiating a resonant frequency in that range it would mean that the original transmitted signal is reaching me, creating oscillating or resonating electrical currents within my mind and then those are creating the reradiated signal, just like an antenna receives and creates radio waves from oscillating currents.

So it wouldn’t be reflecting off of the surface because signals at this frequency don’t do that.

That’s a signal that could create the electronic harassment effects that we experience.

I can detect it from more than 10 meters away using a subscription satellite television dish and those dishes aren’t even designed for this frequency range. I use it mostly for directionality, although a yagi antenna would probably be better.

It can also be detected with just the basic antenna supplied with the rtl.

This is proof of something very serious because I should not be reradiating a signal like that and I’m saying this as a qualified scientist.

Here’s a link to the code at github:

It was because of the great “Quick Start” guide you provide that I was able to easily setup and configure SDR for my computer. Thank you very much for that and for continuing to post interesting stories about the many uses of this technology. Regards.
