Just a quick check list of installations recommended before camp. Detailed descriptions below! Don't worry if you are not coming with a laptop, the badge will still be useful to you.


  • debian based systems
  apt-get install hackrf gqrx-sdr gnuradio gr-osmosdr
  • archlinux
  pacman -S gqrx # pulls hackrf and gnuradio automatically in

RF Analyzer (Android)

Patched version with rad1o support:

There were two GNU Radio workshops at Easterhegg 2015: SDR for Noobs SDR for non-noobs

gnuradio-companion is the full-fledged signal processing application.

osmocom_fft is a nice little graphical tool for quick signal checks.
