Hmm. Nice review, but it is possible to get a bit over-excited when you have something new in your shack. In the paragraph where he refers to analogue scanners and the reception of police and fire utilities, he states that with a conventional scanner you would need 'loads of antennas and pre-ampifiers to even receive local activity'. This makes it sound as though the SDRPlay (and other SDR devices) can somehow magically receive these things without! He does return to the subject later and make some sensible suggestions for UHF antennas though.
Also I would take issue with his effusive recommendation of SDR Console. I've tried to come to grips with this program many times and found it over-complicated and frustrating. Steering new SDR users towards it is not a wise move IMO as it would be enough to put some people right off! I much prefer HDSDR, but of course that's just my opinion.
