    What if the radio spectrum was a data source?

    The evolution of Amateur Radio is a constantly changing landscape. I've previously described the transition from spark-gap to surface-mount and the ongoing progression of inventiveness that brings this amazing hobby together with the leading edge of science and technology.

    Foundations of Amateur Radio is a weekly podcast about the hobby of Ham Radio. Listen via iTunes by searching for my callsign, VK6FLAB, tune in to your local news broadcast, or download your copy from the web-site at

    Yet another Click Bait headline disgusting an ad as an article.

    Thanks for the click. If you're interested in the topic, the podcast audio is two more clicks away.

    You could subscribe to the podcast feed itself a then they'd play without clicking, but then we wouldn't have been able to have this wonderful little conversation.

    Unfortunately this really is a clickbait because I never got to that article, it just goes to a big page with a bunch of other stuff on it.

    I'm confused, are you not able to scroll to the end of that linked page and find Episode 103, "What if the radio spectrum was a data source?"

    The "bunch of other stuff" are the other 102 episodes of this same podcast.

    It is as you wrote, " the limits of your mind as the only barrier ".

    The electromagnetic spectrum is already considered a source of data I think... with the capability of current SDRs to capture and record wide swaths of the spectrum is already being done... I'm sure the NSA and other intelligence agencies are already mining this data for whatever they find useful or interesting... anything sent out into the atmospheric infrastructure we use is fair game.... There's always someone listening.
