49MHz Rtl_sdr receiver

Hello list;

I have been following a thread by Marcus and others about coherent
receivers, etc.

I have a question: Is it possible to change the clock frequency to
receive a
slightly lower frequency?

I have some ~ 49.89MHz wireless mic’s that I would like to reuse, and an
SDR
seems like a cool solution.

My current RTL dongle bottoms out at exactly 50MHz L Can I just change
the
clock or are their firmware issues as well?

Right now if a try and set the frequency to say 45MHz, I get a “device
not
found” error from the Windoze software.

Thanks;

Bill

The clock has nothing to do with the RF range (not directly anyway)
since there is an integrated tuner that converts the RF to DC or a low
IF. Thew exact RF range depends on the tuner and if you get a device
with the R820T tuner it will work down to 24 MHz or so.

The simplest solution might be to transvert using something like the
ham-it-up. When not doing wireless mic duty, you’ll also have a general
coverage receiver to tinker with.
