New Digital Radios - A Revolution Is Underway

Remember analog TV? The picture was fuzzy and functions like video on-demand were not possible. Today's digital TVs have pictures so clear they seem better than reality sometimes. And you can stream video from numerous sources, surf the web, or make video phone calls.
The same transformation occurred with phones. Voice distortion, background noise, and static are common in analog phones. Think 'cell phones' when you think about the quality of digital voice communications. Yes there may be some dead spots, but generally the audio is very clear. And let's not forget about all the apps now...

How Does Radio Encryption Work?

Encryption is the process of encoding information (in this case audio signals) in such a way that eavesdroppers or hackers cannot understand it, but authorized parties can access it. In two-way radios encryption modifies a voice signal using a coding algorithm. This algorithm is controlled by an encryption key. The encryption key is used by the transmit and receive radios to enable the voice signal to be coded and decoded for both radios. Therefore, all radios communicating must have matching encryption keys to receive transmissions.

Engineers at University of Washington have created a new wireless communication technology where devices communicate without relying on any form of power.  This new technology, researchers call "ambient back-scatter", uses existing TV and cellular signals already in the space around us.  These new devices communicate by reflecting existing signals to exchange information with each other. The researchers built small, battery-free devices with antennas that detect, harness, and reflect a TV's signal. These reflected signals are then picked up by other similar devices.  The technology could enable a network of devices to communicate with no...
