Anyone using the RTL-SDR LNA?

hello again caius, the enclosure vents were sourced from Newark/Element 14 (they came from the UK warehouse). the part number is VENT-PS1YBK-N8002. they are very low cost

Thanks, that looks like quite a neat solution. I’ll have a look into it.

Been running the RTL-SDR LNA along with the RTL-SDR v3 Dongle for almost a week now, seems to be doing the job nicely for me and an improvement over the FA Prostick Plus I had on previously. After a lot of experimentation, I’ve settled on a gain of 28. You can see my live view here… radar.clanlawrence.co.uk

Looks nice. I also use dump1090-mutability ver 1.15~dev, but looks & feels are different.

Yep, I’ve done a lot of customising :slight_smile:
