YARD Stick One - Configuration help


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

A bit frustrated here as I can't seem to find any information about this specific problem.

Running Kali 2.0 in a VM on mac, fresh install, updated ready to go.

Plugged in my YARD Stick One, launched gqrx with "gqrx -r", which popped up the configuration window, but the yardstick one is not listed. Am I missing a step here?

Thanks in advance.

Here's what I get when I try to use rfcat with YS1:

Error in resetup():Exception('No Dongle Found. Please insert a RFCAT dongle.',)

Fixed the rfcat issue, now just need to get the gqrx issue solved

Figured it out... I'm an idiot.

any luck with the GQRX issue?

 

Probably not. Although there are some posts about the YS1 in the SDR forum, this is a bit misleading, since de yardstick is NOT an SDR compatible device.

GQRX runs on top of gnuradio and is a nice frontend for software defined radio. This works well with devices like HackRF, BladeRF, Rad1o, USRP, RTL dongles etc. The output is a sampled signal that has to be processed (e.g. demodulated) on a computer.

The Yardstick is an integrated transceiver for digital signals and has a modem that supports some modulation schemes. The output is the decoded signal.

I'm sorry for bringing up an older post, but I'm having similar issues.

The YARD stick one dongle is being recognized with the 'lsusb' command as shown above (OpenMoko, Inc.). I installed 'rfcat' and this seem to work as well.

However, when I open 'gqrx', the dongle/antenna is not found/recognized. I tried the same steps on different machines (installing rfcat and trying to get it to work with gqrx).

Since the YS1 is not an SDR compatible device, maybe it's an idea to add a sub-forum under "Active Projects"? Something like "YARD Stick One / Ubertooth One" sub-forum?
