Freq Show: Raspberry Pi RTL-SDR Scanner

Freq Show: Raspberry Pi RTL-SDR Scanner is a new guide in the learning system:

Have you ever wondered what’s in the radio waves zipping invisibly around you every day?  Software-defined radio (SDR) is a great tool to explore radio signals using a computer and inexpensive radio tuner.  With SDR you can examime many radio signals such as FM radio,television, emergency & weather radio, citizen band (CB), and much more.

Although dedicated SDR hardware like the HackRF allow you to tune an immense range of the radio spectrum, you can easily get started with SDR using a Raspberry Pi and inexpensive RTL-SDR tuner.  Inspired by the HackRF PortaPack, this project will show you how to build a small portable SDR scanner using a Raspberry Pi, PiTFT, and RTL-SDR radio dongle.  With the Raspberry Pi Freq Show RTL-SDR scanner you can visualize the invisible world of radio!
