Hey Phil.

I can only speak to the SDRPlay RSP1 and Airspy R2, but those are two of
the SDRs available that are significantly superior to the basic RTL-SDR

Many people use the premium SDRs such as these products for some really
weak (and/or dirty) signal reception.  The SDRPlay products are
particularly good for full-duplex transponder use, too.  For linear
satellites, I use the SDRPlay RSP1 exclusively as my receive "radio".

Hope that helps!

-Scott,  K4KDR
