Analog cell traffic, of which you are likely to hear *zero* of anymore,
used to occur between about 852 and 862 MHz. The last cell carrier that
supported analog here in town stopped doing so a few years ago.
Unless you're into snooping baby monitors and cordless phones, theres
not much left out there that's interesting, analog-wise. There's still
plenty happening on the WiFi front, however. The tools we used to use
back when are stone-age compared to whats available now. They
practically do all the dirty work for you these days. I remember having
to make sure my car radio's clock matched the clock on my wardriving rig
so I could pencil in correct times on my street map of Tucson. Nowadays?
Noooooo.. Your sniffer has a GPS plugin. Now you can know within 4 feet
what you picked up, with atomic clock accuracy. Takes all the fun out of
