Another WiFi program: wsrtool.py This Python program allows you to process wsr files (capture files of the ISM spectrum, created by Chanalyzer with a Wi-Spy adapter).
The tool filters out selected frequencies or amplitudes (band-pass and band-stop filter).

You need to install the Python module Construct.

Here’s an unfiltered capture:

And here I used a band-pass filter with cutoff frequencies 2420 MHz and 2445 MHz:


  1. Well done Didier!

  2. Great job!! If you adjust the starting_frequency and readings_per_sweep based on the lower and upper values, Chanalyzer will scale the view to ONLY show the frequencies of the cropped section.
