I have question. I downloaded this file http://cdimage.kali.org/kali-images/kali-1.0.5/kali-linux-1.0.5-i386.iso because i need good support for my sdr devices (in Kali Linux blog i read this fraze "best platform for SDR research"). But i have not found tools like kalibrate-rtl, missing also support for FUNcube Dongle Pro +. This is really 1.0.5 version? End if it is 1.0.5 why lacks these applications?
This is qoute from Kali Linux blog:

we placed a great deal of focus in the past few weeks on adding numerous SDR tools and drivers to our arsenal:
kalibrate-rtl
gr-air-modes
RTLSDR Scanner
gr-scan
rtl-sdr
Gqrx
GR Extras
gr-baz
gr-osmosdr
gr-iqbal
gr-fcdproplus
UHD support
HackRF support
RTL2832U support
Funcube Dongle Pro+ support

I wonder if it is a marketing ploy, for capture a new user?
I think Kali Linux may it by excellent distribution, but this missing packet destroy this great image.

I have not really looked into all the applications you mention but:



root@kali:~# rtl_sdr
rtl_sdr, an I/Q recorder for RTL2832 based DVB-T receivers

Usage: -f frequency_to_tune_to [Hz]
[-s samplerate (default: 2048000 Hz)]
[-d device_index (default: 0)]
[-g gain (default: 0 for auto)]
[-b output_block_size (default: 16 * 16384)]
[-n number of samples to read (default: 0, infinite)]
[-S force sync output (default: async)]
filename (a '-' dumps samples to stdout)




root@kali:~# gr-scan --help
linux; GNU C++ version 4.7.2; Boost_104900; UHD_003.005.003-0-unknown

Usage: gr-scan [OPTION...]

-a, --average=COUNT Average over COUNT samples
-c, --coarse-bandwidth=FREQ Bandwidth of the coarse window in kHz
-f, --fine-bandwidth=FREQ Bandwidth of the fine window in kHz
-p, --time=TIME Time in seconds to scan on each frequency
-r, --sample-rate=RATE Samplerate in Msamples/s
-s, --spread=FREQ Minimum frequency between detected signals
-t, --threshold=POWER Threshold for the difference between the coarse
and fine filtered signals in dB
-w, --fft-width=COUNT Width of FFT in samples
-x, --start-frequency=FREQ Start frequency in MHz
-y, --end-frequency=FREQ End frequency in MHz
-z, --step=FREQ Increment step in MHz
-?, --help Give this help list
--usage Give a short usage message
-V, --version Print program version

Mandatory or optional arguments to long options are also mandatory or optional
for any corresponding short options.

Report bugs to gr-scan@techmeology.co.uk.





root@kali:~# gqrx --help

Ok, this software is in my Kali Linux and i use this programs. I need support for FUNcube Dongle Pro + but I do not have it. Everything can be repaired, but why on the blog was written about adding tools and drivers for SDR, although they do not have? Possibly exaggerating the problem, but I'm not a Linux geek and way from one problem to the next bigger problem with software is very frustrating to me.

I do not have that dongle to test that out, but I looked into a couple of tools mentioned in your initial post and was able to find them. There would be no reason for people to lie about this in a blog post.

Now I do not have the FUNcube Dongle Pro so i can't really help you with that, I suggest you post some logs like lsusb / lspci and dmesg so maybe we can trace the issue.

GQRX works for me, but I am using the RTLSDR. If you try GQRX, you should be able to configure it to locate your device. Like a another user mentioned, you should perform a "lsusb", to see if is being recognized by your system.

I also used gnuradio-companion, but I find that quite a bit advanced for what I need, but I was able to receive FM broadcast.

Also, GQRX has a built in AFSK-1200 where you can actually receive and read amateur packet station transmissions, and read them in real time, but I havent quite figured out how far it can be configured, as you receive everything, not just conversations, but control packets, etc.

I hope this encourages you to search further, as any endeavour in the direction you are pursuing is worthwhile.

check the sha1 if it's the same as the 1.0.5 to check it, if it's the version.
Did you update the Dongle?

ps: if you do, try get the old version and try again
