I am posting this after doing research on the forum, hoping this topic has not been posted before. I am attempting to do a project in where I transmit an RF signal, through an object, and receive the signal on the other side. By doing so, I should be able to determine whether the signal was attenuated and by how much, in order to determine the material of the object.
However, I am trying to figure out whether or not I am able to read the signal. What I mean by that, is it possible to see at what frequency the signal is being transmitted, and then at what frequency the signal is being received at or attenuated to?
I am also wondering if it is even possible to do so. I have seen the "transmitting data" video where they show "Hello World" being transmitted in the terminal...trying to do something similar but show the frequency attenuated in the terminal instead.
Unless I have been researching it in the wrong sense, I have not been able to understand or figure out how to exactly do this. Hopefully, someone can give me some insight on how this would work.
Thank you so much, I really appreciate it!
I just found a project that was done and this is what I am going for, just in my case using the Arduino board and the transmitter and receiver module with antennas hooked up to a laptop.
