The Airspy Mini is a very good SDR, you have not made a mistake. At 1,296MHz
you'll probably need a LNA.

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
