RTL-SDR updated L-band patch antenna review - perfect for your SDR radio!

0 Просмотры
The RTL-SDR team have just released a new version of their L-band patch antenna. In this video, I reviewed the new product and compared it to the SDR-Kits L-band patch antenna I had been using up until now.

The antenna was only tested on Inmarsat for this review, however it is specced to receive 1525 - 1660 MHz so would work for Iridium & GPS as well. I may make a future video reviewing it on those frequencies.

Testing was performed by decoding CPDLC transmissions across 600, 1200 and 10500 bps transponders.

Details on the upcoming giveaway will be released in the next video.
