hey, i’m researching details around an idea i’ve been carrying around for a while:
i’d like to setup up a low-cost radio that is set to scan for activity permanently, the audio would be fed into a raspberry pi, that is recording the input, cuts silences and uploads the audio files to a server.
would a, for example, baofeng be able to scan for stronger signals, stay on the frequency for the duration the signal is audible/above treshold and continue scanning after that? could i keep it in this mode for weeks or months? the cheap PMR test device i got is behaving like that, but i’d like to make sure pricier devices would do the same before i order one.
