I live in New Zealand, and here it’s legal to receive any band except Cellular, and cordless phone bands. I also produced a user-space program to control it. Now that you’ve got it working, here’s a helpful hint, especially if you are getting poor reception: Other cards have similar hardware, but you will need to do some of the work yourself. The antenna that came with your card is probably not very good, so consider investing in at least a bunny’s ear antenna. Hi guys, before you tell me it’s illegal, and I shouldn’t be doing this etc.

If you have a TV capture card in your computer, you probably already have all the hardware you need to listen in on much more than just TV and radio only software changes are needed. Another option would be just to try all frequencies in a certain range until you hit something. I’m running Ubuntu Untar mani software package. You can filter out distracting low frequency noise using the highp filter anything below 50Hz is just distracting, and doesn’t help much in identifying what they are saying.
M–tv002 off sound direct to the sound-card using a mixer program, and use a program like sox to process your sound as it goes from dsp1 to dsp. I live in New Zealand, and here it’s legal to receive any band except Cellular, and cordless phone bands.
The hardware will also allow you to hear emergency services, taxi and freight radios, UHF citizen band radio, aircraft transmissions, m-tv0022 more.
Now, you need to remove any saa package you might have on your system, and replace it with the module you just compiled. The exact range of frequencies you will have access to depends on the specific tuner you have.

Go up a level in the software package, and type make. Other cards have similar hardware, but you will need to do some of the work yourself. I also produced a user-space program to control it. You can also get lists for many countries from scanner clubs mwnli your country. Now that you’ve got it working, here’s a helpful hint, especially if you are amnli poor reception: A good way to do this is to look up spectrum licenses with the government body that allocates frequencies if that information is readily available.
This will produce a setfreq binary. However, I have produced a modified kernel driver which will let you tune to arbitrary frequencies. You need to figure out what frequency you want to tune into. This depends on the bandwidth of the signal. For television sound, useor I can tune into that by using. SAA is a popular chip for tuner cards. For example, one of the Central 1 Police frequency is Lower frequency reception may need a different antenna.

You can do that like this you must be root first: The standard kernel driver, however, is not suitable for tuning into anything other than TV, because it has a limited set of tuner frequencies which it looks for at the detection stage. Most other FM radio signals use a narrower band, and generally works well.
In this article, I show you how you can make your Linux distribution I used Debian Sarge, but other distros should work too, as long as you have a 2. Go into the kernel subdirectory of the package, and then type: The antenna that came with your card is probably not very good, so consider investing in at least a bunny’s ear antenna.
On Linux, you have a lot more options for what to do with the sound than on your average scanner radio. Once you have put your package into the kernel, your kernel is ready to start tuning in. It needs to be attached to a tuner such as the FI You could also potentially record sounds off the device, and stream it to other enthusiasts across the Internet, and even decode pager messages but check that this is legal in your country before you try, especially if you are going to post about it!
Managed to get the kernel package from elsewhere. Hi guys, before you tell me it’s illegal, and I shouldn’t be doing this etc.
