Abstract

— The spectrum monitoring has gained new aspects with development of the software defined radio SDR as its very important issue in the spectrum management area. In this paper a spectrum monitoring technique with SDR is proposed, the setup of the prototype based on USRP with Matlab is designed and implemented, the spectrum of 2.4-2.5 GHz band has been measured. The result of this prototype has proved that the module is capable of detecting the main radio signal within these bands, moreover this module had to be able to detect and automatically correct the offset resulted between the two USRP devices.
