If you have the right front end, I guess it would be possible. Would
you just capture a slice around the L1 and L2 frequencies, or try
to capture a big chunk of the band? (I guess a few MHz around L1
would probably be enough to be useful.) I have access to a spectrum
analyser that works in the band, but its memory is probably too
limited to be useful.
