RE: TIL : A little more about Software Defined Radio

in STEMGeeks3 months ago

These frequencies are set by a governing board, so manufacturers know what to set their devices to in order not to broadcast over the entire spectrum of waves and block other communication out.

Really? I did not know there are regulations like this on frequencies set by the radio transmitters...wow.

This was a very nice clickbait because it made you have to share these results with us. I must say I have a lot to know about radio waves, and transmission since it back dates to those times when police used them in the field.

But if you think another person may be thinking of snooping in on some information, then you are right because as I read it, I was already imagining doing this....lol

Thank you for this

I probably didn't word that exactly correct, but in the US, the FCC sets what types of communication goes on in specified frequency ranges or bands.

The Federal Communications Commission is an independent agency of the United States government that regulates communications by radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable across the United States. The FCC maintains jurisdiction over the areas of broadband access, fair competition, radio frequency use, media responsibility, public safety, and homeland security.

Just try to setup a pirate radio station in the US and they'll triangulate you and shut you down. The 1990 movie Pump up the Volume highlighted this. Not to spoil it, but he even put his radio station on wheels and they still tracked him.

If it is floating in the air, anyone can snoop on it,whether they can decrypt it, is another thing.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

Lol

I guess it is all for the best that we have all of these regulations. If not, we would have lots of Chaos with transmissions here and there.

Thank you for responding. I appreciate
