Usmile LW1650 Portable Long Line shortwave antenna shortwave radio antenna for RTL SDR receiver shortwave radio stations

Buy beginner ham radio setup
Check Price on Amazon
Buy beginner ham radio setup from Amazon.com

Description:

This portable long line short-wave antenna is a simple suite, including all necessary kit. It is simple and easy to install. Lightweight, compact, and easy to carry, widely used to receive short wave and medium wave as well as QRP radio station transmitting. Especially suited for camping, emergency communication, etc. (for long-term use, it need stronger wire and waterproof balun.)
Easy to set up and no need to soldering. The antenna should be set up as high as possible. It must be away from buildings, trees or other large objects. An ideal place for the installation is about 25 square meter. If the place is not large enough, you can cut off the extra wire. But wires of the two sides of the antenna oscillator and the holder cannot be shorter than 3-4 feet. If the wires are still too long, you can shorten the antenna oscillator (but it will reduce the efficiency of the antenna).


It would be a great idea to set up the antenna on the building roof, since the reinforced concrete floor can absorb some of the signal produced by domestic appliance in the building. Besides, open area is good for receiving signals.
Best not to install the antenna between two buildings, since the reinforced concrete construction will block signals which could be also interfere ed by the one produced by domestic appliance in the buildings. Note: Be careful while set up the antenna.

Specitication:
Range: 1.6-50 MHz
Impedance: 50
Power: QRP < 5Watts
Polarization mode: level
Radiation direction: all directions
Port: SMA /BNC
Length: 16.2m
Weight: 0.3kg
Package includes:
coaxial cable: 6m
Wire :6mx2
Antenna oscillator: 16.2m

This is an RTL-SDR blog software defined radio receiver with RTL2832U ADC chip, R820T2 tuner, 1PPM TCXO, SMA F connector and aluminium case with passive cooling. Tunes from 500 kHz to 1.7 GHz with up to 3.2 MHz (2.4 MHz stable) of bandwidth. (HF works in direct sampling mode). Perfect for use as a computer based radio scanner with free software like SDR#, HDSDR, SDR-Radio, GQRX or SDR Touch on Android. Works on Windows, OSX, Linux, Android and computers like the Raspberry Pi.

Great for many applications including general radio scanning, air traffic control, public safety, ADS-B aircraft radar, ACARS, trunked radio, P25/MotoTRBO digital voice, POCSAG, weather balloons, APRS, NOAA APT/Meteor M2 weather satellites, radio astronomy, DAB, or as a low cost panadapter with a ham radio.

Comes with a multi-purpose dipole antenna kit which is perfect for beginners. The short antennas are great for ADS-B, and the longer antennas work well at lower frequencies. When used in a v-dipole configuration the antenna works well for 137 MHz weather satellites and the ISS. Use in a vertical configuration for terrestrial signals. The two mounts and 3m of RG174 cable allow you to easily mount the antenna outdoors.

This model has several improvements over other brands. It uses the improved R820T2 tuner, a 1PPM TCXO, better components, a redesigned lower noise PCB, cooling improvements, extra ESD protection and an SMA F connector. It also has a software activatable bias-tee for powering LNA's and active antennas. Full info available on the improvements at goo.gl/MD12bD

For enabling HF reception below 24 MHz please see the V3 features guide: rtl-sdr.com/v3 and please feel free to contact us via Amazon messaging for technical support - we're happy to help.

Programming Amateur Radios with CHIRP: Ham Radio Setups Made Easy (Amateur Radio for Beginners)

Check Price on Amazon
Buy beginner ham radio setup from Amazon.com

Description:

"Back in my day, radios came with a CW key and a frequency knob, and that was all we needed." --Every Old Ham Curmudgeon

OK, that's probably a slight exaggeration, but radios were a lot simpler in the "distant" past, when everything was station-to-station, and most communications were some flavor of HF. Nowadays, we have HF, VHF, UHF, digital modes, CW/SSB/AM/FM/MW, repeaters with offsets, repeaters with tones, User IDs, reflectors, talk groups, and who-knows-what coming down the road for next year. There are a lot of modes, tones, offsets, and little nit-picky details that have to go into our radios before we can even make a call.

On the other hand, radios, especially handheld models, continue to get smaller, lighter, and generally have fewer physical buttons and controls. This is good in that it keeps costs down, adds to durability, and allows for waterproofing, but it doesn't make programming them any easier. Fortunately, we have computers to handle all the programming stuff for us. Just hook the radio up to the computer, enter in all your information, transfer the frequency and channel data into the radio, and you're good to go. Sounds simple, doesn't it?

The problem is that radio manufacturers aren't necessarily good software designers. God forbid you try to program a radio on an Apple or Linux computer using manufacturer's software. None of the companies that make radios include software for these two very common operating systems. None. Even Windows users aren't in the clear. What happens when you try to use the software that came with your radio, when the radio was sold in 2007 and the software was made for Windows XP? Or maybe your radio came with a state-of-the-art serial port connector. That was great... back when all computers had serial ports; now, those are hard-to-find options or require an adaptor. And even though many ham operators enjoy tinkering with computers, there are many who still haven't embraced computers. 

These things just aren't that simple. 

Fortunately, there is CHIRP, a free, multi-platform software that works with a large number of common amateur radios. CHIRP even has database tools for setting up local repeaters, National Calling frequencies, MURS, FRS, GMRS, and Marine frequencies-- you may not even need to look anything up! 

If you're already comfortable with using programming software from RT Systems, or have no trouble working with whatever software that came with your radio, than maybe this book isn't for you. If you aren't good with computers, or you're having trouble with the basic process, don't know what all those columns mean, or are otherwise pulling your hair out trying to get your radio programmed, then this book is for you! We'll walk through getting the software installed and set up, connecting your radio with an appropriate cable and communications port, reading template data from the radio, editing that data, and writing that data back out to the radio.

NooElec NESDR Mini USB RTL-SDR & ADS-B Receiver Set, RTL2832U & R820T Tuner, MCX Input. Low-Cost Software Defined Radio Compatible with Many SDR Software Packages. R820T Tuner & ESD-Safe Antenna Input

Buy beginner ham radio setup from Amazon.com

Description:

The perfect device for learning software defined radio, on the cheap. Amateur radio, ADS-B, police & fire scanning, trunking, satellite images--you name it, this little guy can probably do it. Outperforms many devices 10x its cost!

BUILD DETAILS

This custom NooElec SDR is a modified DVB-T USB dongle tuned for SDR usage, including upgraded crystal, capacitors and inductors compared to generic devices like those sold by competitors. This results in a lowered noise floor, increased stability and improved longevity.

These units are based on the R820T tuner IC made by Rafael Micro. As such, they have a frequency capability of approximately 25MHz-1750MHz, though this can vary somewhat from unit to unit. There is also an RTL2832U IC on board of course, which acts as the demodulator and USB interface.

The connector type on the antenna and USB board is MCX--male MCX on the antenna, female MCX on the SDR. There are plenty of adapter and adapter cables available in our store if you want to connect your favorite antenna!

We perform extensive QA on every batch sold. As with all our SDRs, we guarantee antenna protection will be present so that your new investment will not be quickly destroyed by spurious ESD.

SOFTWARE DETAILS

Full compatibility with a large array of software packages, such as MATLAB, HDSDR, SDR Touch, SDR#, Planeplotter--too many to list. MathWorks and NooElec have coordinated to bring MATLAB support for our SDR receivers. The RTL-SDR radio support package enables you to design wireless receivers using real world signals. Using Communications System Toolbox in conjunction with an RTL-SDR USB radio, you can design and prototype systems that process real-time wireless signals in MATLAB and Simulink
