In this video (m4v) we show you how to take a $10 pager and make “pager scanner” – it can see all the pages and pager data on the pager networks – surprisingly it’s still used for a lot of interesting things and for transmitting data to many devices. Breadboarding diagram for 2-fsk decoding here & download PDW here.
If you want to see how we got here, check out part one first (reverse engineering a pager)… As always, you can get all the videos on Adafruit as we post them through iTunes too… and HD versions on Vimeo.
