E01 – How to Become an RF Whisperer
Welcome to episode 1 of the NSA Show Podcast! In this episode we take a look at some of the software tools used by some of the top Wireless engineers on a day to day basis. We start off by looking at Ekahau Site Survey and AirMagnet Survey Pro. Each of these applications have their pros and cons as we explain their differences and how they work. Next we roll into RF analysis tools such as Cisco Spectrum Expert, Metageek Chanalyzer, and finally AirMagnet SpectrumXT. Listen as the discussion goes from what’s the best software tool to use to a hot topic out there today: where is Cisco’s USB adapter to keep up with the ever changing form factors of laptops? Finally we end the show with a brief discussion regarding packet capture tools like Wireshark, WildPackets, and AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer.
We hope you enjoy this first episode, we had a lot of fun recording it and are looking forward to your feedback for future episodes!
