The N2xx can support enough bandwidth to simultaneously capture any
reasonable set of hopped GSM carriers. In other words, tune the RF to
a single frequency, oversample the input, and downconvert each of the
individual carriers to baseband for decoding. This approach could be
referred to as baseband hopping with a single multicarrier receiver.

OpenBTS has this functionality, but not in the form of a standalone
scanner / decoder like Airprobe.
