If anyone wants to receive and decode their own ADS-B and ACARS transmissions from aircraft to understand how this kind of stuff works, buy one of these for $20:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009U7WZCA/

Then check out http://sdrsharp.com/index.php/downloads

Considering that with $20 and a laptop you can receive and decode this stuff, one of these days there will probably be lots of people recording it all.

u/JazzCrisis · 7 pointsr/livesound

Turn your laptop into a real-time wireless spectrum analyzer and sniffer!

I don't think there's a lot of hardware to buy. I haven't looked in a while but the SDR receiver is about $20 (here's one but there are a bunch), and there are instructions to make your own high-gain antenna. With the receiver and a 5' regular antenna (came with it) I was picking up AMI signals and mapping flights nearby from the ACARS data. /r/rtlsdr knows more I'm sure, also this.

u/mwilliams · 7 pointsr/amateurradio


$20 - RTL-SDR - see /r/RTLSDR, ability to listen to a wide range of frequencies, including the VHF/UHF ham bands, but also scanner activity and everything else in between.

$52 - HF upconverter for the RTLSDR - Add HF listening to the RTLSDR - this is where all the good stuff is (in my opinion), the shortwave, DX, data modes, CW, weather fax, etc etc.

$36 - Baofeng UV-5R - transmit/receive on 2m/440, might not be as nice as the B5 model, but it's $20 cheaper. And quite frankly, I think once you get a taste of HF, your HT is going to collect dust. These keep on getting cheaper and cheaper, they're almost disposable at this point. So if you really dig having an HT and want a B5 or a newer model down the road, it won't break the bank. I've got a hand mic for mine and it's hooked up to an outdoor antenna - talks to all my local repeaters quite easily. Get the USB programming cable and maybe an after market antenna.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaKEYEyrRgk is a really good example

You can use REALLYYY cheap SDRs to get a very accurate picture of what's going on in the RF spectrum. If you're a windows user you can use SDR-Sharp.

I'm not sure locally where the best palce to get this stuff would be or what you costs are, maybe someone from India can help.

u/b1g_bake · 3 pointsr/homelab

I'm using Acurite temp/humidity sensors and a USB RTL-SDR to sniff the signals. Then a neat little piece of software called rtl_433 decodes the radio signals and can output in json format over mqtt. I have home assistant listening to the topics and just view the data there. I'm sure there is an easy way to get data into grafana as well. I ran that setup on a Rpi no problem but have since switched to a NUC and things are still going great.

u/ewood87 · 3 pointsr/amateurradio

I've been using RTL-SDR with the Ham-It-Up. You'll need to get one of these SMA to MCX to connect them. After that I just built a simple wire dipole and strung it up in my attic. I can now do Rx on all bands. Furthest signal I've received so far was from Pakistan and I routinely listen to the shortwave broadcasts out of Cuba and the Bahamas. Best $100 I've ever spent in the hobby for sure.

u/testcore · 2 pointsr/raspberry_pi

Fellow openelec user here. I haven't set up TV, but have poked around enough to know it's possible.

You'll want to read up on their plug-ins here: http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php/OpenELEC_Add-ons_%28Official%29

Looks like the tvheadend plug-in is what you'll need.

Then you'll want to pick up one of these: http://amzn.com/B009U7WZCA

And make sure you have a sufficient power supply.

If you really want a "one-button" setup, the RPi isn't the device for that; it's more for the DIY-er.

u/deeperror · 2 pointsr/amateurradio

check out /r/rtlsdr lots of friends, advice and links to cool things that can be done with them.

There are cheaper ones out there that are most likely exactly the same chips...but this is the one that I purchased:

http://www.amazon.com/NooElec-Previously-Compatible-Packages-Guaranteed/dp/B009U7WZCA/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1420983857&sr=8-3&keywords=rtl-sdr

If you want to cover even more bandwidth (ham bands) I also have one of these: http://www.amazon.com/NooElec-Ham-It-Up-v1-2/dp/B009LQT3G6/ref=pd_sim_e_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=1CRMFJH1XA8H72GGV088

And depending on your OS of choice there are a few different free programs you can use to give you a front end.

windows: sdr#
mac: gqrx
gnuradio

u/K1RKX · 2 pointsr/amateurradio

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the airbands use AM. You can listen on an rtl-sdr like this.
If I am wrong and they are FM, you can get that or a baofeng transceiver and an amateur radio license(optional but you are in the amateur radio sub, we have to tell you to). Links for info on getting licensed are in the sidebar.

Edit: The airbands are AM. You should get licensed anyway though.

u/voxmeus · 2 pointsr/RTLSDR

Here is how:

1 Buy one of these or similar

https://www.amazon.com/NooElec-NESDR-Mini-Compatible-Packages/dp/B009U7WZCA/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1523630442&sr=8-6&keywords=sdr

2 Download and install SDR Sharp ( https://airspy.com/?ddownload=3130 ) on the device you want to listen with (many sdr software available)

3 start tuning in for about 20$

u/dabomb4097 · 1 pointr/guns

Rater than paying for FlightRadar24, I got one of those $20 USB RTL-SDR (https://amzn.com/B009U7WZCA) off of Amazon and set up an old PC to feed them data. In exchange for this you get a free Business tier subscription for feeding them airplane transponder signals.

The same setup can also send data to FlightAware and other similar services, which will also give you paid subscriptions for free for contributing data.

u/fullmonkeyheadon · 1 pointr/GNURadio

Success! Ran cmake, make, make install and ldconfig. Looks like everything installed correctly!

Now I have a new problem. With the previous version I was able to run "modes_rx --rtlsdr" with my SDR plugged in and things would start happening. This time when I tried it, I got:

modes_rx: error: no such option: --rtlsdr

I just ran "modes_rx" to see what the command line options are and here's what I got:

[email protected]:~/gr-air-modes$ modes_rx
gr-air-modes warning: numpy+scipy not installed, FlightGear interface not supported

Just to make sure I wasn't crazy, I installed GNURadio 3.6 (using build_gnuradio -o) and the master branch of gr-air_modes, and the following command worked fine: "modes_rx --rtlsdr"

There's a good chance I didn't RTFM manual here, but I was working off the blog post in my OP which was easy as pie. So I'm fairly confident I'm screwing something up, but just in case, this is the device I use.

u/gleapsite · 1 pointr/bugout

While I do have a hack.rf, I was talking about one of the Rx only dongles.

u/GB570 · 1 pointr/policescanner

I bought one of these a couple years ago

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009U7WZCA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

and got the SDR# software

but I never managed to get it working properly so I kinda gave up and ended up buying a uniden bearcat police scanner

I imagine these guys don't need to source amazon.com for a $20 antenna/receiver.

u/mcracer · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

You can use these with a RTL-SDR setup. It's well supported in linux.

u/BamBahnhoff · 1 pointr/HowToHack

I‘m not really into radio-things, but I want to get into it. I want something that is able to hijack a radio-audio system (basically speakers with the audio being transmitted on radio) , at best as far away as possible. Can you give me any advice for that?
Is this good, or could I also go with the ones you linked?

u/EltaninDraconis · 1 pointr/amateurradio

If you just want to receive, then a $20 USB stick like this is a good place to start. From there you can experiment with antennas and see what you can pick up. Here is a Hak5 episode covering it.

If you want to transmit, you will need to get your license and a transceiver. You can get a dual-band Baofeng handheld on amazon for about $30 if you want to just try the hobby out. Hamstudy.org has the question pool for each license class (start with technician), then you need to find a testing session in your area when you are ready to take the test. Sessions usually cost $15.

Also check out the links on the sidebar. The IRC channel is also a good place to ask specific questions.

u/fireshaper · 1 pointr/policescanner

I provide the scanner feed for my area and I had been using a Bearcat to receive on. A friend of a friend got me started with SDR and I've seen a HUGE improvement. I live on the south side of town but I'm getting a great signal from all over.

You need two of the SDR dongles (they are cheap on Amazon) and just follow this guide.

u/under_design · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

They're on different frequencies, and will never work with each other. You'll need one of those tunable radio USB dongles to specifically tune and monitor that 303.217mhz frequency for data.

u/CbcITGuy · 1 pointr/amateurradio

like one of these???
