    Also a better antenna would help with the signals you are trying to receive. If the antenna provided is for a certain freq range (i.e. TV signals) then it may not pick up the signals as well for what you are wanting to listen too.

    A tri-band amateur radio antenna may work better. I don't know how difficult it would be to make it to plug into the SDR though. Of course for the relatively cheap price tag you probably can't complain for what you get and what it does.

    Tony, would you agree on the antenna or has it worked well for you so far as is?

    So... What did I find at 400mhz DSB, and is there a way to decrypt it?

    Btw. I'm using this powered antenna with the gain turned all the way up. Works pretty good. Lol

    haven't found anything on exactly 400mhz, but there are quite a few Government agencies using frequencies near that range.

    DEA - around 418mhz
    Federal Protective Services - 408.200
    Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago - 406.700
    US Army Corp of Engineers - 407.300
    US Dept of State - 409.525
    US General Services Admin - 406.875
    US Postal Inspectors - 407.725

    These are all P25 and likely encrypted so not likely to decode them.

    Hmm... Not that big of a deal, I just thought it was interesting since there isnt much happening around here.
    I did get it uploaded to youtube though.

    If you are looking for things to listen to and have not done so already Radio Reference 9http://www.radioreference.com/) has a large database of frequencies and who they are allocated to. Live feeds as well.

    Happened across this today, downloaded SDR-SHARP and loaded the drivers for my terratec USB receiver. Check out the station and song info upper left corner.
