I have parted company with my Elad FDM-S2 after buying an SDRPlay RSP1. I found this small, lightweight receiver as good as my Elad on HF but so much better on VHF. On VHF I was let down by my oft failing homebrew antenna so I have bought a new Diamond D130J Discone that is currently winging its way from Australia.
But wait……….there’s more! On the back of selling the Elad I have ordered an SDRPlay RSP2 that is touted to perform even better on HF than the RSP1! This receiver too is winging its way from the UK as I write so hopefully by the end of next week I will have a reasonable set up that covers 1kHz through to 2GHz.
