Dongle Shootout: Funcube vs RTL SDR – Part 1

“A small “side by side” comparison of a Funcube dongle and a cheap RTL SDR DVB-T dongle (Hama Nano) connected to the same antenna and using identical test systems from a geostationary INMARSAT satellite to compare received signal to noise ratios (SNR).

The FCD is used “live” in this video while the DVB-T IQ stream (1MHz bandwith) was prerecorded a few minutes before the video in order to avoid having to switch the dongles and reconfigure software back and forth and thus save some time in the video…” –Ottiki
