Just received the SDR kit from the Hakshop and had two questions: 1.) The RTL unit when plugged into the USB drive is EXTREMELY hot. Is this normal for this hardware? 2.) The device is not recognized in a full install of kali (tried lsusb command to verify). Kali's full install appears to have the sdr drivers installed. Is there something else that must be done for the device to be recognized?
I acquired a Realtek 2838 USB SDR with the Fitipower FC0013 tuner chip. I have to say... what a piece of excrement. The rf gain is less than half of that available in the Realtek 820 tuner, and station quality, both audio and digital across FM Broadcast and VHF is completely lackluster. I think in this case, the problem is with the tuner chip, as all the other different branded Realtek 2838 USB SDR's with the Realtek 820 tuners seem to perform pretty much the same. I don't have an E4000 tuner chip model to test, but the Fitipower dongle will likely end up at the bottom of a packing box, as I don't even think it is worthwhile to put it in the bottom of a desk drawer. I may end up mailing it to Hak5, if Darren or Shannon are interested in seeing it/having it/playing around with a tuner other than a Realtek 820. Who knows, maybe Evil Server will be able to mind meld with it and get something productive out of it's rather pitiful design. -FuzzyBunny
