Default Pager message sniffing with RPi and SDR

The 1990′s called, they want you to use modern technology to listen in on your friendsí pager messages. Seriously, how many people are still using pagers these days? We guess you can find out by building your own Software-Define Radio pager message decoder.

[Sonny_Jim] bought an RTL2832 based USB dongle to listen in on ADS-B airplane communications only to find out the hardware wasnít capable of communicating in that bandwidth range. So he set out to find a project the hardware was suited for and ended up exploring the POCSAG protocol used by paging devices. It turns out itís not just used for person-to-person communications. There are still many automated systems that use the technology.

Setting things up is not all that hard. Reading the comments on the project log show some folks are having dependency issues, but these sound rather banal and will be a good chance for you to brush up on your Linux-fu. Once all the packages are installed youíre simply working with text which can be displayed in a myriad of ways. [Sonny] set up a text files on the Piís webserver so that he can check out the latest captures from a smartphone.
