MDT MESSAGING INTERCEPTION

MDT MESSAGING INTERCEPTION

Post by claflin er » Wed, 13 Apr 1994 06:38:37

This is my second post requesting information on any equipment out there
which may allow mobile data terminal (MDT)  radio traffic transmissions
to be intercepted and read, FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY.  I already know
of the MDT units themselves being available to the public, but I am only
interested in a receiver unit that will convert the signals into display on
a monitor.

If net readers have any qualms about publicly posting a reply to this message
on the net (which you need not have any worries), E-mail can be sent in
confidence to:


Option 2:  use the anonymous posting service (double blind) if you're still
wary.

                        Many thanks,

I have yet to see a commercially available product that can decode MDT data.  
The major hurdle is the proprietary code scheme used by each manufacturer.  
There are a few companies working on this (or so I've heard), but I have not
seen anything shipping yet.

You should realize that it's not that people are afraid of answering you,
it's on account of the fact that most MDT transmissions are not decodable.
Unless you've got an MDT from the department of interest, you will probably
never decode an MDT transmission.  The Motorola system uses a proprietary
signalling scheme (totally unlike anything else out there) and anybody
coming up with a decoder would be quickly sued.  There's also some degree
of encryption built in.

Give up and live with the fact that you'll probably never decode an MDT
transmission.
