First test with RTL-SDR v3 stick

Ordered this stick on december 28th ont he RTL-SDR website and it arrived yesterday. This is my 4th dongle 🙂

I bought earlier a very cheap DVB-T dongle (black) that is now in use for ADS-B reception, connected to my old RPI 2B.
Then I bought a slightly better one with the R820T chip (blue) at NooElec, this was my main sdr allround receiver. Now in test at receiving radiosondes.
Some time ago I was given my 3th dongle : the Funcube dongle pro (S/N 0003742). I’m not impressed of this one. Seems a bit deaf. And just 96 kHz bandwidth.

So, the new v3 stick. Bought it from https://www.rtl-sdr.com/buy-rtl-sdr-dvb-t-dongles/
Hooked it up to my ZS6BKW antenna to test the HF reception in Direct Sampling (Q-branch). Seems promising already.
