So this post will be the first of a series on fun “hacking” hardware that I own.
I just received my RTL-SDR to play with radio frequencies.
This model has the advantage of being really small, but maybe at the costing of heating. I noticed the USB connector becomes painfully hot during long sessions. Nothing serious, but a negative point though.
Of course, it is fully compatible with Linux and Gqrx even maintain a package for Ubuntu, so getting it to work consists simply in one
I already intercepted a few conversations on the AM 430Hz range, and a lot of weird signals (many are probably car or parking doors) all over that I recorded and will look at later.
Well, it is fun! Thanks to @virtualabs for bringing it up to my interest.
