I thought it was illegal to unscramble signals
i just now started hearing a lot of stuff now
Lon: as a long time ham, I’m so glad to see you got your license. That said, I’m pretty new to the SDR world, and this video was very informative. I appreciate your enthusiasm and your explanations are extremely well done. There are few folks that can explain technical subjects as well as you do. Thanks and 73 de N5CSU
Why is everything so complex 😢 i dont understand any lf how to install any of this. Can anyome walk me through how to do this step by step? Ill pay you for your time! Thanks!
Excellent informative video. I just received the dongle and antenna today and within minutes I was surprised to actually hear faint voices coming through the speaker, I instantly felt like I was cool. I’m hooked now and I appreciate you going into detail because it helped a lot.
Thanks! I have read a lot and watched a lot on this SDR.. and put in a lot of bookmarks, but your presentation was spot on. I have since reading this dumped some of those bookmarks LOL🤣. Thanks again & God Bless.
After me and others have been trying to download this for the past year I've came to the conclusion they've taken our money and ran. The website is down but still takes "donations"
I remember my bear car scanner kept picking up a signal , when ever i pointed the antenna in a different direction it would stop , finally I started flipping tandums in the breaker box , then i was able to see what part of the house the signal was coming from. Come to find out , it was coming from a light bulb in the garage. It was the only bulb putting out a signal, I just thought it was weird.
ohh my got that was 10 years ago :)
Nope, go step by step in order.
Thank you for putting out this video! You've introduced me to a whole slew of online resources to explore, such as the Signal wiki and the Pskreporter site.
You're ready for the tech exam Lon! Thanks for all the VLOGS.
if one is a true Ham he shouldn't have a computer in the first place.
the sec he touches it he isn't a ham anymore.
stay away from sdr.
What's the best way to decode LoRa? It seems like DSD+ can't decode that.
I never had much luck with DSD+ (non fastlane) and switched to using SDRTrunk instead with great results. It can channel follow and use multiple radios to cover a larger bandwidth than a single radio.
This was an extremelly well presented video. Thank you.
Sir pl make a video about decoding LMR digital voice
