I join the project 6 years ago with a USB stick.
Generic RTL2832U (Generic, RTL2832U, SN 77771111153705700)
Found Rafael Micro R820T tuner
Since a week, it stop running, I cannot get any data:
piaware: 0 msgs recv’d from dump1090-fa; 0 msgs sent to FlightAware
I try to buy a new one on amazon and received this one :
Generic RTL2832U OEM (Realtek, RTL2838UHIDIR, SN 00000001)
Found Fitipower FC0012 tuner
which is not compatible.
I’m ok to buy the official USB stick.
As I’m in France, I have to buy on ebay and the price is 106.49 USD (110 Euros) or from UK 72,75 Euros.
A lot of money …
Do you have am European reseller to save customs cost ?
If not, I’m sorry to say that at this cost I’ll not continue …
you could order it from the Netherlands, the blue FA stick costs 39,95.
I don’t know if they ship to France but it is worth a try
You can get an RTL-SDR Blog V3 directly from their online store for $29.95 with free shipping. They ship worldwide.
That’s the typical development of pricing due to the chip shortage. Currently you need to pay twice the price also for Raspberries.
I checked some stores in Germany, all sold-out on the FA sticks or overpriced.
I’ll do that, thks.
50 Euro the full kit through Aliexpress, not so bad
Thanks all for your help.
Aliexpress has many sellers selling stick with wrong or incomplete specs.
If I have to purchase from Aliexpress, I will not risk 50 Euro. I will risk only 15 Euro by purchasing this one.
