Ruxcon 2011: Hacking the wireless world with SDR

Posted on Saturday, November 26th, 2011 in hacks, RF, talks by the machinegeek

Software engineer and perpetural hacker Balint Seeber presented this talk at the Ruxcon 2011 conference held November 19-20, 2011 in Melbourne, AU. Balint presents those unfamiliar with SDR with the basics of the hardware and software you’ll need and highlights what’s out there in the lesser known areas of the RF spectrum. He explains some of his experiments with SDR with particular attention to satellite monitoring including analysis tricks from the RF level down to understanding the raw data.

(The video is shot from a side angle, and the audio is low at times giving it a kind of bootleg video appearance, but the material makes it worth it. )

Balint runs the website where you can read about his various RF and SDR projects.
