[amsat-bb] SDRplay RSP2

Mike,  I use the SDRPlay RSP1 as a receiver with my FT-817 as Transmitter 
for SSB sats.  My setup is minimal, and am just using a Arrow antenna 
mounted to a camera tripod.  I do have a GaASFET preamp, but the LNA in the 
SDRPlay seem to do the trick without the preamp.  I use SDR Console 
software, which is powerful and a lot of options in it.  It is above and 
beyond HDSDR and SDR#!!!

The other nice thing with using a SDRPlay on Sats, is you can see the entire 
band for downlinks, and at a touch you can move to another signal in the 
linear sats.  I record the passes audio and listen to them back after also.

Hope this helps a little, and 73!

I was considering the Funcube Dongle Pro+ and ran across the new SDRplay
RSP2. I was wondering if anybody has experimented with it on the ham
satellites. I see it has three switchable antenna inputs and a bias T to
supply voltage for a pre amplifier.
