What do I need in order to connect this to a RTL-SDR unit? Thanks

Asked by: Booker
Sorry but there isn't a lot of data to work with here .. I'm thinking the RTL-SDR would be equipped with a reverse SMA connector, but don't understand why you would use a scanner aerial on such a device. could you please forward more details of the device you are using (including pictures if possible) and what you are trying to do to technical@maplin.co.uk we can then try to assist

Asked by: poncho
