Yes, that's that's the one I have Bob.  Note that it comes from Hong Kong so may take a time to come, if I remember correctly 1/2 weeks.

As Alan has aready confirmed, the pigtail is OK.

While waiting for pigtail, test/try your setup using the whip antenna which came with the dvb-t dongle. This whip's cable does not require any pigtail or adapter, and plugs directly into the dongle.

You wont get many aircrafts with the whip, but it will test and prove your hardware & software is working OK.

Dont forget to place whip over a large metallic object like a food can or tin. Keeping the whip antenna near an outer wall, or still better, near a window, will improve reception.

I tried using the antenna that came with the stick and it did OK.  Had it sitting on a metal disc on the inside window sill and got around 60-70 miles all around
