GSM Module Engineering Mode

Sun Sep 29, 2019 3:35 am

I recently got a SIM800X GSM/GPRS Hat to use with my pi. Looking through how to use it, I found out about AT commands. I saw that there is an command to set it to engineering mode that would allow the device to display network information. This would be very helpful as I have always been interested in how cell networks work. Is there a way to run that command then record the information?
Thanks

It can probably be done in 30 different scripting and programming languages... any favorites ?
