Tracking Aircraft over 300 miles away! Mountain + Drone + SDR #drone #droneday

Darren Kitchen and Shannon Morse from Hak5 see if they can track aircraft from over 300 miles away using a drone, coaxial collinear antenna, wifi pineapple and SDR dongle. Think their drone can deliver? Let’s take a look!

Radio Horizon and Fresnel Zones get practical as the Hak5 team takes a SDR Equipped WiFi Pineapple drone to an altitude of 4200 feet! From the 3800 ft summit of Mt.

Software Defined Radio Receiver USB Stick – RTL2832 w/R820T; If you’ve ever been curious about software defined radio (SDR), this USB stick is the easiest way possible to have fun with a powerful, configurable receiver. Packed with the powerful RTL2832U and R820T tuner, it can tune into signals from 24MHz to 1850MHz. That means you can use a computer (with Windows, Mac, or Linux) to tune into: FM Radio, AM signals (but not AM radio), CW (morse code!), unencrypted radio signals (such as those used by many police and fire departments), POCSAG pagers, and more.
