Last time I noticed a used RFSpace NetSDR at Universal Radio, it was snatched up in a matter of moments.
A few weeks ago, I posted a link to Universal Radio’s used receiver page which featured a used RFspace NetSDR. Ragnar Daneskjold (of Pirates Week fame) jumped on the deal. Ragnar had been contemplating an SDR purchase for some time, and the NetSDR fit the bill.
Now that Ragnar has had some time to play with the NetSDR, he posted some of his impressions which began with this statement:
A few weeks ago I purchased a Net SDR from RF Space. I have to say that I love it. Its just a black box that resides in my basement but it has revitalized shortwave listening for me.
Ragnar evaluates the NetSDR using three different SDR applications: CuteSDR, sdrDX and SDR-Radio.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the NetSDR, Ragnar!
I just noticed that Universal Radio has an RFSpace NetSDR on their used list.
The NetSDR typically sells for $1449.95 new, this used one (serial number 0014) is selling for $949.95.
Though still a chunk of change, $949.95 is a bargain for the RFSpace NetSDR. If you’ve considered buying the NetSDR, you should jump on this opportunity. Universal Radio stands behind their used receivers–I’ve bought several–so you can buy with confidence.
Based on the NetSDR’s specs, it appears that this will be a very robust and high-performance SDR. RFspace is touting that it’s fully plug and play and designed to be integrated with your home network and the internet.
We will post all updates about the NetSDR here and on our new Shortwave Radio Index website (click here for the RFspace NetSDR entry). When available, we will also link to relevant reviews in the SWRI entry.
