RTL-SDR E4000 Tuner Trick to Get AM Radio without Mods or Upconverter

June 28, 2013 admin

YouTube user Superphish has posted a video showing the trick mentioned in this Reddit thread by Anonofish that enables the E4000 tuner to receive a small portion of the broadcast AM band without doing the direct sampling solder mod, or using an upconverter.

It simply involves tuning to a frequency between 3686.6 – 3730 MHz, at which point AM signals start showing up on the spectrum. It isn’t that useful as you can only tune to the very lowest AM stations, but it is still interesting.
