What's this got to do with broadband internet on the ham bands?  Plenty!

Purchased it at Dayton and they just released the first batch of ver. 1.0.

Spent quite a bit of time with the TAPR folks at Dayton, came away with the impression that we have some brilliant members of our Amateur Radio fraternity (and maybe a few in this email list, too!).

I was blown away by the presentation about this device.

The first slide had a graphic of a spectrum display of -80 db. noise.  Just noise.

The second was the same slice of spectrum and with only a 200 ms. delay for computer post-processing (a "normal" home computer will do), the signal was about 10 db. above the noise.

Kicked my butt.

An all-mode 10 Mhz. to 6 Ghz. transceiver, power output about 15 mw.  The goal is to get down to 1 Mhz. with full spec.

Totally open source hardware and software.

The future of radio communications?  You betcha!

This may be a "toy" at the moment, but most technology starts out this way.

And...the developer has a handheld in the works that runs Android with the same specs.

Pinch me...

Looking forward to powering it up, but not before slugging through the huge manual...

Will keep everyone posted.

There are a number of people at Unallocated space that have these devices.  If you'd like to get up close to one, we might be able to host an event discussing what they've been able to do with them...

I have one and play with it all the time. I've mostly done voice modes with it (rx and tx). My hope for the future is to do data of some sort. Its a really neat device.

Here is a list of resources that I have found helpful for the HackRF so far:

Mike's own video series about GNU Radio and DSP. He adds a new video every couple of weeks, and he does an excellent job explaining things.

Some of my successful GNU Radio flow graphs

GQRX. A great general purpose receiver tool. 

The shield kit to go onto the HackRF PCB:
