Software-Defined Radio - Recieving & Transmitting Analogue Radio - RTL-SDR: Cheap and powerful USB radio reciever - open source hardware

Many different manufacturers sell their own RTL-SDR, including antennas whatever, they may also sell upconverters to access even smaller bandwidths, im using the NooElec NESDR Smart and the Ham-It-Up upconverter - also open source hardware - SDRSharp (SDR#): Probably the simplest SDR software out there, supports RTL-SDR and many plugins exist, some software are also compatible with it - open source (A LOT of SDR stuff is open source) - HackRF One - Open source transciver hardware, you need an amateur radio license to transcieve

Band plans: (USA) (UK)

GNU Radio: - another popular SDR software

Getting started guide: - an SDR website, if you don't own a reciever - I don't recommend it, HTTPS cannot be used there

Site that lists Web SDR services are here: - to read radio stations nearby pick one thats closest to you
