> Hi All,

Since you decided to send this both here and email, I'm only going to bother replying once, here.

> I stumbled across the spectools code, and found it very useful. Thanks a ton for this! I am using a 2.4x wi-spy device. I had a few questions about the same, and I was wondering if you could help me out:
> 1. Is it possible to tweak the frequency range? For example, if I only want to monitor a particular center frequency, how do I go about doing it? (i.e., all the samples from wispy would then corresponding to this frequency)

There is code in the 24x specific file for setting it. There is currently no interface in the UI for controlling this.

The 24x has somewhat limited range setting capabilities if I recall.

> 2. What is the current sampling rate? (i.e., how many RSSI values/sec can I get with the current code)? How much time does it take to move from one frequency to the other?

Depends on the resolution of the scan, etc. Timing data is encoded in the sample records if you want to add instrumentation. There is currently no display for this.
