Thanks for listening :)
There's lots more info on rtl-sdr stuff at
They've a list of known compatible USB sticks. The best place I've found
to buy them is: http://www.nooelec.com/store/
I have a few suggestions on what to improve (Move stuff out of
main(), thanks Bob!)
any contributions will be helpful, I've not done C coding for many
years, and have little knowledge of what is cryptographically bad about
the entropy my code produces!
In regards to EFI booting that a guy asked about (Sorry, I don't
remember your name!) on my macbook air. The debian 7 install ISOs come
with an EFI bootloader, so if you boot the image via EFI, it'll
automatically install grub2 in EFI mode.
To change from rEFIt or similar bios emulation, follow something like:
Which amounts to, installing grub-efi-amd64 (or grub-efi on i386), and
making a vfat partition, mounted at /efi, copying the right stuff in,
and rebooting :)
Here's another howto for reference:
