Re: Directional antenna for GSM phone tracking?

Thanks for the info, looks like that's the way I need to go. Any idea what range one of these can pick up a cell signal? The area is a bit wooded, not really line of sight. Would something like this work? http://www.ebay.com/itm/US-STOCK-External-LPDA-Antenna-for-Cell-Phone-Signal-Booster-Repeater-A...

Directional antenna for GSM phone tracking?

Can a directional antenna and SDR be used to triangulate direction of a gsm phone? I am trying to come up with something to determine if there are any phones nearby (very rural area), and their direction. I'm not worried about intercepting signals, just trying to find any phones that are on.
