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.
