DVB-T-USB-Sticks as Scanner from 9 kHz to more than 1 GHz
For some Euros I ordered from a Chinese EBay-seller two DVB-T-USB-sticks. They are based on the receiver chip RTL283U. In combination with free Software and a simple up converter this dongle gives access to the frequency range from 100 kHz to more than 1 GHz. This means, that you can use those sticks as broadband scanner or low cost spectrum analyzer with limited accuracy.
