> Yes sir, absolutely. Downloaded Chanalyzer off their website (v4.2.2.27), installed and ran it and sure enough, it's able to kickstart both the new and the old 900x dongles with no issues and display their data. If you have one of the newer 900x dongles you can confirm this for yourself. I'll be willing to buy and send you one if you don't.

I'll see about getting one, but thanks for the offer (drop me an email and I can explain more; email at the bottom of the site)

> One thing of interest that I noticed while looking at the new 900x in Chanalyzer. It offers 2 different ranges in the UI for it. 902-928 MHz and 862-870 MHz. I don't ever recall the older 900x dongle having more than configurable range available. I'm not sure if this is useful info at all, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

It's configurable; I just didn't have good values for the old one to put in. I should do that. Spectools needs some TLC; I just haven't had time.

The new 900x should be identical to the old 900x, this is a bit puzzling. I'll see what I can do over the next few weeks - I'll be at Defcon next week so I probably can't get a new 900x and work on it before then.
