DVB-T+DAB+FM USB dongle (Realtek, RTL2838UHIDIR, SN: 00000001): A Generic RTL2832U OEM Rafael Micro R820T tuner.

On Ubuntu, I'm using the rtl-sdr package which contains the following command line utilities:

  • rtl_adsb: a simple ADS-B decoder for RTL2832 based DVB-T receivers
  • rtl_eeprom: an EEPROM programming tool for RTL2832 based DVB-T receivers
  • rtl_fm: a narrow band FM demodulator for RTL2832 based DVB-T receivers
  • rtl_sdr: an I/Q recorder for RTL2832 based DVB-T receivers
  • rtl_tcp: an I/Q spectrum server for RTL2832 based DVB-T receivers
  • rtl_test: a benchmark tool for RTL2832 based DVB-T receivers

Found this documentation at osmocom.org (rtl-sdr)

 

You can also use the GNU Radio Companion. I found these interesting links:
