What should be normal signal strenght of cellular frequency?

There are certain frequencies on my sweep whose signal strength are shown in red in RTL Scanner. I don't know if they belong to cell phones or not, what signal strength do normal cell phones signals have in frequency sweeps?

Is there a list of spectrum analyzing software used on Linux?

Is there a list of spectrum analyzing software used on Linux? I searched this website, but the articles associated with them are more confusing than helpful, they have some paragraphs, some hyperlinks, but no name, or download link. Most of them seem for windows or other hardware. Is there any Linux...

Re: Can any RF chip be modded to turn into an sdr or only R820T?

Depends on what you mean by an SDR. Most WiFi, cellular, and mobile phone radios are SDRs internally. So you don't need to turn them into an SDR, as they already are SDRs. However the RF frequencies and modulations these SDR chips are capable of are often fixed to specifics bands and modes, and the...

The R820 is not a SDR chip it is in fact nothing to do with SDR simply a tuner.

Alan Thanks for this inform...

Can any RF chip be modded to turn into an sdr or only R820T?

Can any RF chip be modded to turn into an sdr or only R820T? Can a person program their WiFi adapter to turn into an SDR covering frequencies upto 2.4GHz or 5GHz?

If yes, why aren't there sdrs with USB WiFi modules?
