Kinda OT, but sure, what I use for most experiments is a handheld dipole with telescoping elements, it can tune between about 80 and 400 MHz, for everything else I use a simple 800MHz rubber duck, these work well enough for everything i'm doing.

Hi everyone,

Apologies if this is slightly OT but I am new to gnu-radio, radio and SDR.

I am interested in what people are doing for antennas, I was thinking
that some kind of modular antenna would be cool, basically an SMA
connector, some cable, a groundplane with a hole to slot the antenna
in to, you could then change the actual antenna piece for different
frequencies, no doubt I am missing something fundamental?

So my SDR has a frequency range of 300MHz - 3.8GHz, so you could have
20 pieces of thick wire (your antenna), each one a different length.

Thanks for looking.
