Connecting LNB to SDR

Recommended Posts

Alright, my RTL-SDR V3 arrived and I want to connect it to my LNB and try some solar observations with my small dish. Now the LNB requires power (to run the down converter etc.) which means bias tee. We all know what happened when I last used a bias tee, so I need your guidance here.


LNB -> F-type to SMA connector -> bias tee -> SDR


Is this the right chain configuration?

Correct configuration as long as bias tee is the right way around and supplying at least 12v.
