Kazunori Miura sent me one of his new soft66rtl3 SDRS a couple of months ago and I did a quick overview for swling.com.
Kazunori just emailed me about another brand new design in the works. Sample should be here in a week or two.
Kazunori is that force to recon with when it comes to low cost $8.00 dongles and mid-range $200 SDRS. For $40 you really can't go wrong at all before you move to a 12bit SDR (SDRPlay, Airpy or Afedri).
