Still messing around with your #RTL-SDR receivers? Now, here it comes the #FL2000 transmitter! Hackers from Osmocom community just made another breakthrough: Cheap USB-3 VGA adapters w/FL2K chips as #SDR transmitters!
Hackers since 2001 have attempted #RF via VGA, but suffered from V/HSYNC interference. Osmocom hackers managed to disable them, milestone. Exploiting harmonics, FM/DAB/DVB-T/GSM/UMTS/LTE, even GPS (11th harmonics!) is possible on this piece of rather limited hardware.
Antifa arrests at anti-Nazi rally
