hackrf - first impressions

Yesterday I got my hackrf one board. I am very excited about it as it offers a lot of functionality for my projects. So far I can share very little about it but here it comes...

What I like

  • It's very small and portable
  • It has a nice little antenna with decent range of 75 MHz - 1 GHz
  • Extremely hackable! Few lines of python code and you're on the air :)

What I don't like very much

  • Almost no Windows based software and drivers

I say almost as there is the SDR# but it lacks some key functionality so I would rather skip it entirely.

Those impressions are based on about 1-2 hours of playing with the board so don't put much faith into those words. I will share more as I unfold its secrets.
