I was searching for a shielding solution for my modified RTL-SDR dongle.
I saw some blog posts about the RTL-SDR shielding but all was aluminium hard cases and I don’t have enough equipment here to cut or drill aluminium boxes. So, I found a soft solution.
I’ve ordered 25mm wide pure copper tape from eBay. It is very cheap and really useful for RF equipment. Also solderable.
I’ve used my nails to shape it on the edges.
the cover job done in 5 minutes. Now it’s looking like jewellery. But I’ve used 4 individual strips for 4 sides. So, I should connect them all.
I tested it without an antenna.
Wow! a clean blue screen! It’s working!
Thanks for reading.
