2097152 would be the real bit-head choice not that it would be
accurate 1 Hz steps in any case.

I realized this. I believe the very first users
selected the set of sample rates you see. In reality there are
ranges of numbers that will work. One starts at 900001 samples

over 2.4 Msps seem to drop samples with some precise numbers
better than others for unknown reasons.
Thank you Joanne and Ken. Both answers throw some light on it for
sure. Attached is the list of the available bandwidths for the
RTL. I think you would agree that 2048 is an odd bedfellow as seen
in the progression of the list, especially at 2.0 is already in
there. Would have expected to see 2.0, 2.1, 2.2 etc. But I've seen
the 2048 crop up in other SDR software for the RTL-SDR so I
assumed there was some good reason for it.
Anyway, not very important. Simply one of those "just wondered"
