I'm pretty new to this and I'm looking to buy a decent cheap SDR dongle for my pc, just to listen to some frequencies on locally, any recommendations? Budget £30

I have all sorts of different versions but there are seven of these in a USB hub which is on 24 hours a day and they work fine. They are very compact and do get quite warm (hasn't affected performance so far), especially when so densely arranged. Amazon delivery was quick and nooelec are very responsive to their customers.
