You also need to install the kernel source corresponding to the kernel on your system most distros come with a kernel source package. However, I have produced a modified kernel driver which will let you tune to arbitrary frequencies. I can tune into that by using. The exact range of frequencies you will have access to depends on the specific tuner you have. Untar the software package.

The standard kernel driver, however, is not manlo for tuning into anything other than TV, because it has a limited set of tuner frequencies which it looks for at the detection stage. Now, you need to remove any saa package you might have on your system, and replace it with the module you just compiled.

Most other FM radio signals use a narrower band, and generally works well.

Lower frequency reception may need a different antenna. You can also get lists for many countries from scanner clubs in your country. For example, one manil the Central 1 Police frequency is Grab the software package from here. Managed to get the kernel package from elsewhere.

Hi guys, before you tell me it’s illegal, and I shouldn’t be doing this etc. You could also potentially record sounds off the device, and stream it to other enthusiasts across the Internet, and even decode pager messages but check that this is legal in your country before you try, especially if you are going to post about it!


In this article, I show you how you can make your Linux distribution I used Debian Sarge, but other distros should work too, as long as you have a 2. Other cards have similar hardware, but you will need to do some of the work yourself. If you have a TV capture card in your computer, you probably already have all the hardware you need to listen in on much more than just TV and radio only software changes are needed.

Turn off sound direct to the sound-card using a mixer program, and use a program like sox to process your sound as it goes from dsp1 to dsp.

I’m running Ubuntu Go up a level in the software package, and type make. This will produce a setfreq binary. Another option would be just to try all frequencies in a certain range until you hit something. To tune into a radio frequency, you need to give two parameters: I can tune into that by using.

Go into the manl subdirectory of the package, and then type: This depends on the bandwidth of the signal. You need to figure out what frequency you want to tune into.

Once you have put your package into the kernel, your kernel is ready to start tuning in. For television sound, useor The antenna that came with your card is probably not very good, so consider investing in at least a bunny’s ear antenna. Even if you get the station frequency right, getting this one right is almost as important, or you won’t hear much. On Linux, you have a lot more options for what to do with the sound than on your average scanner radio. It needs to be attached to a tuner such as the FI SAA is a popular chip for tuner cards.


You can filter out distracting low frequency noise using the highp filter anything below 50Hz is just distracting, and doesn’t help much in identifying what they are saying.

I also produced a user-space program to control it. A good way to do this is to look up spectrum licenses with the government body that allocates frequencies if that information m-v002 readily available. Untar the software package. I live in New Zealand, and here it’s legal to receive any band except Cellular, and cordless phone bands.
