An owner review of the SDRPlay RSP 2
by James Pearson-Harris

“The SDRPlay RSP 2 is a fantastic wide-band receiver for almost any imaginable application! If you can think of a reason you would need/want a standalone receiver, this will almost certainly do the job! I bought mine from a local company in the South Wales Valleys, service was excellent, although they didn’t really know what it was they were selling me! Ha! I was even able to negotiate a little discount!”
