Left: Burst Audio Bug (turned OFF)
Right: Same Burst Audio Bug (turned ON)
Note: The "hump" on the right is caused by the digital circuitry in the device.
This is the 3.6 second data burst which occurs once every 6 hours.
The audio is digitized, compressed, and held for burst transmission.
Left: Ultra Low Power "Part 15" FM Bug
Right: Audio Bug Hidden next to TV Channel, very easy to miss
This is a Multi-Trace Spectrum Analysis of a Wideband Frequency Hopping bug.
The device covers 50 MHz of bandwidth, spectrum was swept (chirped) 500 times per second.
