DECEMBER 2020 PROMOTION:
Rational Waves + Nooelec's NESDR SMArt RF Receiver
Rational Waves works great with low-cost RTLSDR receivers such as Nooelec's NESDR SMArt device. This RF receiver supports a frequency range of 24 - 1766 MHz, but its maximum bandwidth is < 3 MHz.. Rational Waves extends this limited bandwidth to approximately 300 MHz by performing many subscans, "stitching" them together to create a fine resolution, wide band, RF spectrum scan. This near real-time RF spectrum analyzer can now be used to reveal patterns and events in the spectrum data that might otherwise go unnoticed. For example, in the wireless pro audio field the 470-600 MHz frequency range is used for channel assignment and frequency coordination for indoor and outdoor live events. The combination of Rational Waves with Nooelec's NESDR SMArt RF receiver provides an inexpensive diagnostic tool that helps take the guess work out of configuring wireless audio gear and monitoring for RF interference.
It's hard to believe how inexpensive RTLSDR receivers can be -- typically under $50 USD -- depending on the SDR's capability, internal components and accessories. For the best selection, prices, shipping options and after sales support our favorite source is Nooelec. At our request, Nooelec is offering a special promotional discount of $5.00 USD on their popular NESDR SMArt RTLSDR receiver (MSRP $37.95 USD) that is good until the end of December 2020. We do not receive any percentage of their sales. We just like their products and think you will too. They have a fun web site to browse -- so give them a look.
