Software Defined Radio : Rapid Bleaching

DVB-T Stick Terres 2.0 : inside view

This is in fact a very short introduction. Useful if you don't have time to read the manual(s). You need a DVB-T Receiver with an USB connector (and an RTL2832U chipset). The software installation will be explained here.

Setup • Drivers

The installation can be done in two steps :

• Add/Replace USB driver, using (e.g.) zadig
• Install SDRSharp

Plug in your DVB-T Stick in a USB port. Windows™ will then install a driver automatically. Now start zadig_2.1.0.exe or any later version. Select options and put a tick at list all devices. Your Stick now shows up in the list of the devices connected via usb. Choose it and click on Replace Driver (Administrator privileges necessary).

NOTE : Unplugging the dvb-t stick may cause this action to be repeated.

Now download and unzip the SDRSharp archive. Run the install.bat file. When starting the software (after installation completed), choose Source / RTL-SDR USB.



In fact a nice gadget. As usual the golden rule applies here, also : you get what you pay for. You will soon want to use a better antenna, possibly optimised to your frequency of interest. The display will show a lot of frequencies, which are not there : images of whatever is found in digital logic. And last but not least, the span is limited to a maximum of approx. 2 MHz. (Sampling rate) A 20 EUR dvb-t stick is not a spectrum analyser. But the software is beautiful. An appropriate tool for education - where the overloading of the input will not cost a fortune :-)
