Can someone provide some insight on what connectors to use. I currently use the little whip that came with the DVB-T USB stick. I’ve built a bigger outdoor antenna on the roof, and I’m trying to hook that in and boost my reception, but I’m having a hard time getting the connectors right.
The existing little whip antenna has a thin wire that pushes into USB stick. The wire has an end that looks similar to an RCA connector, but it is not RCA. It is definitely male, though. That’s what pushed into the end of my DVB-T SDR stick.
I keep seeing descriptions of SDR USB sticks and they keep mentioning MCX connectors, so I ordered an adapter with male MCX and it does not work at all - no way will it push into the USB stick. I know female MCX will not work, because the end of the USB stick is female.
COAX, F type, PL239, BNC, SMA, MCX - why do we need 23 different combinations - gives you a headache
I’ve got RG-58U with stranded center wires coming down from the roof. How can I get this to plug into the DVB-T? Thanks ahead of time.
