This converter, developed by KN0CK, combines the popular ezCap-based RTLSDR dongle with a high quality HF up-converter designed around a Mini-Circuits amplifier to allow the RTLSDR to receive signals in the 0-54MHz band, from longwave frequencies through the 10m band all in one unit! This completely integrated dongle could even be mounted at your antenna's feed point using an active USB extension, if you have a permanent antenna installation.
Combined with tuning and decoding software, you can do nearly anything from longwaves through HF with the RTLSDR and KN0CK HF Converter. This converter has the same electrical specifications as the Rev 3 converter, but with a different board layout to accomodate a range of dongle shapes.
