About this deal

Mike N7MSD on An HF Ham Radio SSB/AM/FM/CW Transmitter made from a Raspberry Pi Pico and not much more: “ Not at all: this is just bit-banging a signal just like you would on a regular Pi but less overhead. We do not sell low volumes of HackRFs to people individually; instead we have agreements with specific resellers.

Designed to enable test and development of modern and next generation radio technologies, HackRF One is an open source hardware platform that can be used as a USB peripheral or programmed for stand-alone operation. The HackRF One is a new software defined radio that has recently been shipped out to Kickstarter funders. Having had some time to play around with this, I've got to say I'm impressed with just how much of the spectrum this little guy can cover. An SDR, a homebrew antenna, and some off-the-shelf software, and you too can see weather satellite images on your screen in real time.

The HackRF One is a test equipment module for RF related experiments and measurements which covers a frequency range from 1 to 6000 MHz. This is the HackRF One, a Software Defined Radio (SDR) peripheral, from Great Scott Gadgets, capable of transmission or reception of radio signals from 1MHz to 6GHz. The easiest way to make HackRF One full-duplex would be to create an add-on board that duplicates the RF section and also provides an external power input (from a wall wart, for example) for the additional power required. MHz in the S-band, and the ground station it now downlinks to is likely in Svalbard, rather than in the USA. In one of his latest videos Matt from the Tech Minds YouTube channel has created a beginners guide to the HackRF and Portapack with the Mayhem Firmware.

A 20 Mhz window is cool but it’s really a misuse of the technology to use it just because you can, and not because it’s necessary for the respective part of the spectrum you are working.If you were to plot the spectrum of this signal, you would see one spike at the frequency of this sinusoid and a second spike at 0 Hz (DC). It processes Digital Signals to Radio waveforms allowing integration of large-scale communication networks. Unless developing or testing new features for HackRF, we highly recommend that most users use build systems or package managers provided for their operating system. There are plenty of simple examples of RF reverse engineering projects on the internet for everyone to grasp the basics of RF and getting started with reversing using SDR devices.

A more accurate comparison would be lowering the sample rate of the HackRF to be closer to the sample rate of the Flex. It is a transmit and receive capable SDR with 8-Bit ADC, 10 MHz to 6 GHz operating range and up to 20 MHz of bandwidth. I’d sure like to ‘marry’ the two but since that’s likely not a realistic possibility I’ll probably end up getting both I have several homebrew HF SDR’s and a modified Delta 44 but it seems like every year there is less and less things on the HF bands that are interesting or useful.More importantly, the spectrum captured is not continuous, and [Oleg] questions whether it can be demodulated properly. physics, it’s a cruel master) is getting the strong signals out of the picture so they can’t overload the ADC and getting the signal up high enough to overcome the inaccuracy and noise in the 2 LSB’s of the converter. Due to the open source and license fee free nature of the project, other software project can join at any time.

The images themselves are nothing interesting to look at, as they are produced by a sensor designed to measure wind.The HackRF is a half-duplex transceiver operating between 1MHz - 6HGz with up to 20MHz of bandwidth.
