Am on gold coast... used for only decoding 148.5625 and 148.6375 on pdw.. win 10...

Not needed for anything else other then that.

Currently have a pactel sd1300 discone but getting better results with handheld scanners antenna. ImageImageImage

To be honest I actually get 97% reception with the default antenna that comes with the RTL-SDR v3. I have tried various different antennas and none of them get as good as that.
