SDR videos

Software-defined radio (SDR) technology can be used for many interesting technical experiments. With listening only SDR you can do many interesting things, but having a SDR that can also transmit opens many new doors. Here are some interesting videos related to SDR and cyber security:

    Decoding Automotive Key Fob Communication based on Manchester-encoded ASK Modulation

    Learn how to probe & capture key fob RF signals, hardware demodulate each burst/packet, and finally how to set up the scope to decode each transmitted message using the scope’s User-definable Manchester/NRZ Trigger and Decode option (DSOXT3NRZ/ DSOX4NRZ) on Keysight’s InfiniiVision 3000T and 4000A X-Series oscilloscopes.

    Get Your Weather Images Straight From The Satellite

    Josh] has a series called Ham Radio Crash Course and a recent installment covers how you can grab satellite images directly from weather satellites. This used to be more of a production than it is now thanks to software defined radio (SDR). Josh also has another project using a 3D printer to make an antenna suitable for the job.

    The software is the venerable WXtoImg program. This is abandonware, but the community has kept the software available. The program works on Linux, Windows, and Mac. The satellites in question operate around 137 MHz, but that’s easily in the range of even the cheap SDR dongles. [Josh] shows how to use a virtual audio cable on Windows to connect the output of the radio to the input of the WXtoImg program. Under Linux, you can do this with Pulse or Jack very easily without any extra hardware.

    Software Defined Everything With Mike Ossmann And Kate Temkin

    Software defined radio has become a staple of the RF tinkerer, but it’s likely that very few of us have ever taken their software defined toolchain outside the bounds of radio. It’s an area explored by Mike Ossmann and Kate Temkin in their newly published Supercon talk as they use GNU Radio to do some things that you might find unexpected.

    3.2 GHz Vector Signal Generator Tear Down

    [The Signal Path] snagged a fancy Rohde & Schwarz vector signal generator that can go up to 3.2 GHz, but sadly it wasn’t in working order. It powered up and even put out a 1 GHz signal, but the amplitude output was very wrong. Interestingly relative changes to the output were correct, it was just that the absolute output amplitude was off by quite a bit and changed with frequency. That started a detective job which you can follow along in the video below.

    Flipper Zero is a portable multi-tool for pentesters and geeks in Tamagotchi body. It loves to hack digital stuff around such as radio protocols, access control systems, hardware and more. It’s fully opensource and customizable so you can extend it in whatever way you like.

    BAE Systems delivers first radiation-hardened RAD5545 software defined radios on their way to Lockheed Martin to support future space communication, national security, surveillance and weather missions

    BAE Systems delivers first radiation-hardened RAD5545 radios

    RAD5545 software defined radios are on their way to Lockheed Martin to support future space missions.

    BAE Systems’ software defined radio is anchored by the RAD5545 single board computer (SBC), providing the most advanced radiation-hardened quad core general purpose processing solution available today to address future threats on a variety of missions. The system leverages modular and standard building blocks including a SpaceVPX chassis and backplane electrical connectors, Serial RapidIO and Spacewire interfaces, and a fully supported expansion port for a custom interface card.

    Hurricane Watch Net for ISAIAS on NA5B WebSDR

    Hello all. For those who do not have their HF up and running, there is an alternative way to listen to the Hurricane Watch Net for hurricane ISAIAS which is going to hit Florida and the East coast states in the coming days.

    Here is a link for the WebSDR server that I have been running for some years, a 24/7 basis in Washington DC Area.

    Best regards
