initial version of FAQ
= OsmocomTETRA Frequently Asked Questions =
== Can I use OsmocomTETRA to listen to police radio? ==
No, you cannot. We expect any decent police radio installation to use at least Tetra Air Encryption (TEA1/2/3/4)
or end-to-end encryption.
Also, if this is your interest in this project: Please simply go away, we don't want to talk to you.
== What can I do using your software? ==
You can learn more about how TETRA works on its lowest level!
== How can I actually receive TETRA RF signals? ==
You can use any radio that is suitable for your target frequency range.
We have so far used the Ettus USRP and USRP2 radios with a variety of different daughter boards.
== Can your software actually play the voice signal? ==
Currently we have no support for that. However, a prototype version has been implemented
== You are sending GSMTAP messages. Where do I get the TETRA wireshark dissector? ==
We have not written any TETRA wireshark dissector. Some researcher have done this and
we are trying to convince them to release their code, rather than replicating unnecessary work.
