Win a Free SDR Receiver Package! & NooElec have teamed up to give away
SDR (Software Defined Radio) receiver packages to TEN hams!

If you haven’t had the chance to play with an SDR receiver, here’s your chance! Using freely available software (SDRSharp, HDSDR), a modest antenna, and an inexpensive USB SDR dongle (the NESDR Mini or NESDR Nano), you can tune from 25 MHz – 1750 MHz right from your PC.

If you want to listen to MF/HF, just add the inline Ham It Up upconverter to tune down as low as 500 kHz. There’s even an Android app (SDR Touch) that allows you to plug these USB SDRs into your tablet (Android 4.0+, must support USB OTG)!

These little USB SDR receivers are amazing and extremely affordable (under $20). They are a lot of fun to play with!
