• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

am I recording LTE uplink signals?

I have this app, LTE Discovery, in my phone which tells me the LTE UL frequency and power so I went with my SDR and measured the received signal at that frequency and it matched.
Now, how can I be sure this is the transmitted signal from my phone? As I made a call to and from this phone and nothing changed.

To improve the detail I would do three things to the spectral display.

1. Move the base noise closer to the bottom of the display.
2. Change the vertical scale to stretch the signals vertically.
3. Change the horizontal scale to stretch the signal horizontally.

Purpose is to see more detail in the clump in the center of what you have now.

You might see something once you expand what little data you have to fill the available space.

Try wrapping the phone in aluminum foil several times to see if anything in the display disappears.

Take a look at the LTE protocol/implementation. Likely several other signals in that clump and your phone is only one of them.

Good Luck
