Hello hakologists, sorry the posts have been a little thin on the ground currently in the process of starting a new company and managing my existing customers. I’m having some new tools fitted in my workshop which has taken up a lot of time recently. I’m still working on bits and bobs when I have time as soon as I get chance I’ll get something uploaded.
Started installing debian on my main rig.
DO NOT PLUG IN THE DONGLE
DO NOT INSTALL ANY SOFTWARE IT CAME WITH
If you have uninstall the software, driver and unplug the dongle.
Goto airspy.com and download the ‘SDR Software Package’
Unzip the files somewhere
Plug in your dongle
Run zadig.exe (as administrator)
Make sure ‘show all devices’ is selected.
In the device drop down select ‘Bulk Interface 0’
Ensure WINUSB is selected in the other drop down.
Click OK to any warnings
Select the RTLUSB dongle
Click the play icon to start capture.
Tune to a known frequency (FM station)
Ensure WFM is selected
Open the options menu
Increase RF gain, but don’t let the signal distort.
If you can hear distortion try adjusting the volume control in SDR#
Give yourself a pat on the back and get scanning!
Moving on to gqrx and linux in the next video.

Nothing like a fresh coffee to start the day.
First tech support call to configure a printer, nice and easy start. Still have a DVD drive to repair and another person that wants some security advice but ill get on those next week. Time to start recording some stock footage and get editing.
Recharging cameras and having a brew.
Key-framing, key-framing, key-framing … and listening to a little drum and bass.
Can you imagine the disappointment when whoever discovered it was a 3D printed leg for a dog.
More stock footage recorded just transferring the files and going to get back to editing and compiling.
Still editing and chopping stock footage, quite boring stuff but im making progress. Need to edit the audio in two locations and add a little more information but everything is coming together quite nicely. Then its Friday … game time and off to see a few friends, whoot. Planning a late night mumble if you want to join message me for the connection details, we’ll be hacking all the things.
LEEROY MOTHER F%$£ING JENKINS Its time to stop for a while and blast the s&%$ out of some evil demons on the computer!!! BOOM HEAD SHOT, BOOM HEAD SHOT, BOOM HEAD SHOT, BOOM HEAD SHOT. BOOM! HEAD! SHOT!
Well after a little gaming and a little sleep, I think its time for a coffee and some work. Then some more games hehe 🙂
So I’ve kind of finished the first edit, doing a quick VBLOG, then some serious gaming till the wee hours.
