With the proliferation of software defined radios on the market I am interested to hear what people think is the best for 137 / 144 / 440 / 1296 MHz use.

I have selected the airspy mini based on the fact

It's 12 bits
It's got tracking filters
It works with sdr sharp, hdsdr, gnuradio, gqrx

Has anyone bought out a satellite specific SDR ?

The funcube dongle is probably the best ?

I have a hack rf as well as rtl sdr and sdr play
