Other people are probably interested, so please keep discussion on-list
if you can!  (Of course you're welcome to discuss off-list as well, but
threads are such fun.)

I have an "OpenPCD 2" which should be able to read 13.56 MHz tags.

It's USB and has a fully open source software stack so you'll probably
want a Linux machine to use it with.

I think 13.56 is the most common frequency, but your devices may be in
another band:

I'd love to help with your experiment!  Let me know when you'd like to
meet up.
