  • Recs for hardware to build receiver based on US Amazon store? ...

    Looks like they don't need me. But I'd like to try to build my own receiver. I've setup a couple Raspberry Pis in the past.

    I looked at the list of required hardware and it seems pretty straightforward except for the ADS-B USB dongle. Can someone point me one to the the US Amazon store that is known to work well for this?

    I've started reading some of the sticky posts, and will read some more tomorrow.

    Any other tips or words of wisdom? I'm a software dev and a ham radio operator so I'm guessing I can handle this, but not entirely sure I know what I'm getting myself into.

    Thanks in advance!

      I use these, both are good.
      ​​​​​Both are generic DVB-T (with Realtek/RTL2832 + Rafael 820T2 chips). Both have RF Amplifier (LNA) & 1090 mhz Filter (SAW) chips added.

        Did you mean "blue and orange"?

          Probably.

          But would have soon discovered that not finding any results.
