I have a laptop that can access wireless networks.
I have an ethernet port.
I have UHF CB radios that have access to repeaters. They are 40ch, and considering they are brand new I got ch22 and 23 locked out, as they are the mobile phone send/receive frequencies. I suppose I could dig out an old UHF CB from somewhere if I wanted to break the law and listen to mobile phones (it's not as easy as it sounds, they jump signals, there is rudimentary encryption etc). I could also transmit on mobile phone frequencies without a sim card.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT NEW UHF RADIOS ARE COMPUTERS AND YOU CANNOT ANONYMOUSLY LISTEN TO A FREQUENCY ON THEM.
For that you get a radio scanner.
UHF is not hard to encrypt digitally though.
I also have a wireless broadband modem, not a router. the sticker on it says 3475-3600Mhz, which is mobile tower frequency, I think.
I am unsure.
I am certain, however, that it works off towers, much like a digital mobile telephone.
I can also get a 3G mobile phone and use it as a modem, if required.
I also have a Uniden Bearcat scanner in the other room. It is old, like maybe 10-15 years. It isn't digital as far as I am aware. I could get a digital scanner but all the interesting things are encrypted either government or private/corporation, and possibly illegal to listen to.
Now, what fun can I have legally in regards to radio hacking and eavesdropping, apart from just turning the UHF's on and making them scan, or using the scanners?
What could I do with my modem?
What could I do with my wireless access thingo, WiFi or whatever you call it?
If I lived somewhere where it was legal to play with these things as I pleased, what could I do, eg modifications to the equipment etc?
Because they are digital if I touch them and then try and access a network alarm signals will go off everywhere and I might get in a lot of trouble, but if it was legal to do what I wanted, what could I do with these things?
