The $20 versions are well worth the effort if you've never played with
an SDR of any sort before.  For satellite downlinks?  Dunno, never
tried.  Surely as you describe!

Has anyone done any kind of "shoot out" comparing the cheapos to the
real ones or even between the real ones (FCD, SDRPlay)?  Before I
plunk down $200, I'd like to see what I'm getting ...  over and above
what my $20 dongle can do, of course.  :-)  I read what you typed, but
I'd like to see numbers.
