Reading SCM Data in the freq of 910-920Mhz
That is my Goal and I am way over my head here, hardware-wise.
Obviously there is a FCC regulated unlicensed usable RF-Band between 910-920Mhz.
Utility companies use it to do their drive-by readings of electric- and water-meters.
The communication is one way the meters just send out data regular.
The protocol is called SCM and sort of documented and I found a MathLabs Page (https://www.mathworks.com/help/comm/ug/automatic-meter-reading.html)
But they refer to some SDR-Hardware-Kit for Mathlabs, and I even do not use MathLabs so now the Question.
"This example shows you how to use Communications Toolbox™ to read utility meters by processing Standard Consumption Message (SCM) signals and Interval Data Message (IDM) signals which are emitted by Encoder-Receiver-Transmitter (ERT) compatible meters. You can either use recorded data from a file, or receive over-the-air signals in real time using an RTL-SDR or ADALM-PLUTO radio."
is what I now about Hardware, so what is a RTL-SDR or ADALM-PLUTO radio and how can I connect one to the P2?
In some of my readings about those meters the word ZigBee showed up. Might it be that this could be solvable with a ZigBee Module?
