Lifes been a bit hectic of late but managed to get one little thing done this week which was use one of these very cheap (6quid delivered from shenzen) dab/freeview dongles and get it setup with alternate drivers so it becomes a software defined radio. I got it working with SDR# following these instructions here . I also worked out how to get it to send audio to another piece of software called fldigi which is a software modem capable of decoding audio from a radio meaning if I get a decent homebrew antenna built I should be able to decode satellite telemetry....so far for less than a tenner! Also got my test for my foundation licence next week...gotta do a bit of reading!
