Hi weberbe,
can you explain in some more details how this can be done ?

So far I did not succeed to attach to any cell, not to get some packets from it.

At which moment can we observe the packets which are coming :
1) During the initial measurements or
2) Only after we attach to a cell

What should be set up, what applications run and in which order to
obtain some packet logging in Wireshark.

I am running master branch - so, no SIM working.

Best regards,
