Are you trying to get your hands on one of those coveted FUNcube Dongle SDRs? Well, it looks like a healthy used market is already emerging on eBay. This seller started the bidding off at $175 — just about what he (or she) paid for it. But with only about
8 5 3 1 hour left to go, there are 4 7 9 10 bids and it’s already up to $217.58 $228.75 $255.51 $270.55! How high will it go? I’d argue that it’s still a terrific value even if it were priced higher.
A tidy little profit and surely a sign that demand for these little gems exceeds supply. There is big opportunity here. Hopefully Howard G6LVB and the good folks at FUNcube will be able to ramp up to meet this demand soon.
What about a US-based distributor? Would the dongle have to be type-accepted to be sold/marketed in the US? Maybe someone with more experience with these this could chime in….
