  • Install the RTL-SDR drivers for your OS
  • Run an SDR application
  • Listen to FM broadcasts
  • Learn how to use an upconverter
  • Basic antenna setups
  • Have a basic idea where to go next!

There may be some kits available on the night, including an RTL-SDR dongle, and upconverter from . A dongle + upconverter kit comes to around AUD$70 delivered. You can of course source parts from elsewhere! Has more information, and compatible dongles.
