Start from scratch today, hack the EM spectrum tomorrow!
There's no reason SDR needs to be limited to an elite group of users. There are so many tools out there that allow anyone with some technical background to quickly get familiar with the world of SDR. Depending on your background (Ham radio operator, software developer, wireless researcher, Michelin star chef) you may already know some parts of the big picture, but might be missing others. The last few years, many tools have been created to ease your entry into SDR, and we will give an overview of what they are and how you can quickly get started working with electromagnetic waves. No prior knowledge required!
Assuming you can operate a Linux computer, we will use the following tools to get you started with SDR and GNU Radio: - PyBOMBS - GNU Radio Companion - gr_modtool
