At the July 26, 2021 club meeting Ryan Martin, KE8MSW
presented a fantastic program on building a Trunking Scanner by combining an SDR
dongle (Software Defined Radio on a chip that plugs into a USB port on a
computer), with a miniature Rasberry Pi computer, and some really magical free
open source software. He showed us how this combination could copy all of
the police, fire, and public service channels in Lenawee County, plus a whole
lot more interesting traffic. Ryan has written up a summary of this
project outlining what you need to know to do this project. Furthermore,
he has offered to help club members get it all up and working. Read it
over here. It might
make an interesting club project to do as a group on Monday nights if there is
enough interest. If interested in doing this project,
drop an email to Ryan and Bob, K2IBM, and we will see what we can do if
there is sufficient interest. (This information will permanently be on the
Construction Corner page).
