Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. I figured a bunch had to have tried the same thing as me! I have noted pretty much all of the drawbacks already mentioned (poor supression of strong signals…uplink wiping out downlink receiver etc.) Thankfully I am not in an RF rich environment, so I am going to continue to mess around and try some options. I have to say, for a modest investment there are a lot of really good applications for this little receiver. Nice way to experiment anyway. Mine has the upconverter in it so I have HF/VHF/UHF. Really handy little tool. If nothing else I can have a visual on where the signals are during a satellite pass or can decode telemetry. Thanks for all the input. This is what I love about amateur radio! Lots of really smart people out there that are willing to lend a hand.
