“Hey Guys, I’m Corrosive”
I’ve been into radios and scanning in general since I was a young kid playing with a basic 10 channel crystal controlled police scanner. On and off from there I’d use a hand held scanner to find interesting signals although most of the time that’s all it was. Something interesting that I couldn’t do anything with.
A few years ago in an IRC server I used to hang out on someone approached me about something called an SDR, it was a DVB-T TV tuner stick whose driver was hacked to allow wide band reception with a water fall display. These were crazy inexpensive although not of the best quality at the time.
With several of them in hand I saw an entirely new world of radio, I was able to access radio bands and signals I never could have before and all that with the added benefit for a large waterfall display.
I’ve always had an urge to share my knowledge with others, my YouTube channel has bounced around from modifying the PSP (Playstation Portable) to computer security and hacking in general. Today I’m focused on sharing what I know about software defined radio and learning from the very same community in the process.
The car contains several RTL-SDRs for P25 Trunked reception as well as general decoding and scanning. A dedicated SDR with Bias-T for Inmarsat/Iridium reception.
Then we have enough Motorola gear for Amateur operation on 2m/70cm/1.25m/900Mhz Analog and P25 among a few other things I’m working on.

With a Windows tablet for heavy lifting and an android head unit I have everything I need to live ADS-B aircraft tracking, ATSC Railroad tracking, P25 Trunked system decoding and more!
