Do exist between 1755 MHz and 2200 MHz signals that could warrant to
prefer an E4000 (with its lower sensitivity, the gap, and phased out) to
an R820T ?

Apart from the cellular band of 1800 MHz (which anyway is pointless to try
to receive, given its complex GSM coding), nothing else comes to my mind.

It's just a listing for the sake of completeness, Alberto. But if you take a look at this chart:

it does suggest a few signals of interest, and I guess some of the E4000 may go up to 2.3 GHz, although I've not checked that myself. Some folk may already have E4000 chips which they bought earlier, or without knowing of the limitations.
