This series is chocked full of interesting trivia about the RTL-SDR type dongles and some setp up models. It includes comparison of representative units but I found the more interesting information talks about software. There are a bunch of freeware software apps which allow you to control your SDR. You can even decode trunking DMR. And there are a bunch of internet connected DMR radios in many countries.

Enjoy
