I'm shopping for an SDR interface for my HF rig. I've seen a number of choices. For the TS830S it seems the easiest way is to use the IF RCA jack on the back of the receiver.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what SDR to buy? I was looking at the RTL SDR, but don't know how well it will work with my older unit.

Thanks for the help.

I’ve been using the SDRPlaydx for about a month now with no problem. I use the RCA jack on IF1 and connect it to the SDR using an RCA connector with a lp259 male connector on the other end. I connect this to the SDR using an sma to lp259 female adapter with coax.

I verified this connection with the folks at Sdrplay.
