Description

CrikeyCon VI Training - An Introductory Look at Software Defined Radio (½ Day)

Overview

This course will use Software Defined Radios (SDR) to receive and decode messages and broadcast data over the airwaves.

Student Prerequisites

This is an introductory course.

Software Requirements

A laptop running VMWare Player. A VM will be provided.

Hardware Requirements

Attendees will need laptop with VMWare Player. The VM will likely need 4GB of RAM & a couple of cores. You will also need to be able to pass USB through to the VM.

If attendees have hackRFs (used for broadcast)it would be great if they could bring them along, to supplement the two I have access to. I can bring a dozen RTL-SDRs which only do receive and will cover the majority of the workshop activities.
