Signal strength for specific frequency

Post by 1337g » Thu Jul 10, 2014 3:33 am

Hi guys, I am new to SDR (VERY new), so this is probably a stupid question, but here goes:

I want to write some python that will take a bunch of specified frequencies, dwell on each one for x ms, and report their signal strength (in db or whatever). I don't want it to scan through other frequencies like rtlsdr_scan.py, just the precise frequencies on the list. This shouldn't be hard to do, right? I've had a look at the rtlsdr_scan.py script to try and work out how to do this but I'm not having any luck. Is there a simple way to do this?

I want to take the frequencies from an sqlite table and write the results to sqlite as well but I'll work that out later once I have the rtlsdr side working.
