First HAM signals on my SDR

Last night I setup my new Nooelec StartXR SDR on the tables outside and connected the Ham-it-up module and antenna.

I successfully received my first HF digital signals. It was very noisy as the telescopic antenna supplied with the kits is not the best for HF receiving. So the next project will be to build (or maybe buy) myself a better antenna for receiving HF.

There seems to be quite a bit of QRM at my place, so that seems like something I’ll need to track down.
