Your purchase includes everything you need to get started with software defined radio. A HackRF One and ANT500 antenna from Great Scott Gadgets and 4 SMA antenna adapters from NooElec are included in your custom bundle purchase.
HackRF One from Great Scott Gadgets is a Software Defined Radio peripheral capable of transmission or reception of radio signals from 1 MHz to 6 GHz. 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.
● 1 MHz to 6 GHz operating frequency
● half-duplex transceiver
● up to 20 million samples per second
● 8-bit quadrature samples (8-bit I and 8-bit Q)
● compatible with GNU Radio, SDR#, and more
● software-configurable RX and TX gain and baseband filter
● software-controlled antenna port power (50 mA at 3.3 V)
● SMA female antenna connector
● SMA female clock input and output for synchronization
● convenient buttons for programming
● internal pin headers for expansion
● Hi-Speed USB 2.0
● open source hardware
HackRF One has an injection molded plastic enclosure and ships with a micro USB cable. HackRF One is test equipment for RF systems. It has not been tested for compliance with regulations governing transmission of radio signals. You are responsible for using your HackRF One legally.
ANT500 from Great Scott Gadgets is a telescopic antenna designed for operation from 75 MHz to 1 GHz. Its total length is configurable from 20 cm to 88 cm. ANT500 is constructed of stainless steel and features an SMA male connector, rotating shaft, and adjustable elbow. ANT500 is a 50 ohm general purpose antenna. It is the perfect first antenna for use with HackRF One or YARD Stick One.

The device arrives of course with no instructions, manuals, or software. You're pretty much on your own at this point. And it's because this device is so versatile, it would be a never ending job to try to document all of the various ways this device could be used (many yet to be invented).
You will need some technical knowledge and background in operating systems, programming, and radio to fully appreciate what this device is capable of. If you just want to listen to radio, go buy a radio. But if you want to explore all of the other ways RF is being used today, this is a must have device to begin your explorations and education.
And because the HackRF One can also transmit a low power RF signal, you could buy 2 of these devices and actually begin to develop your own radio protocols and applications and whatnot (i.e. you could develop your own elusive broadband frequency hopping encrypted walky talky devices). Of course, to be practical for field use, you'd need a much stronger output signal. But you can use these (relatively) inexpensive devices to create new RF applications and actually test it.
So anyhow, this is not a plug and play device by any means. Don't expect to buy it and install a program and then begin listen to things. I began by installing Ubuntu and GNU Radio on my Intel NUC but had some problems with the audio sink (the NUC only outputs audio via HDMI or Bluetooth.. there is no audio out plug). So, I switched to Pentoo on a bootable 128 GB USB stick I formatted to FAT32 if I recall correctly. I still had the same issue with the audio sink and HDMI output, but for my test I replaced the Audio sink with a WAV file sink in GNU Radio Companion. The attached picture is simply a snapshot of the GRC for FM radio reception and a plot showing all the stations in my area.
FYI, I used the pentoo-x86-default-2015.0_RC4.6.iso distribution and rufus-2.12.exe to create the bootable LIVE USB Pentoo install. I highly recommend you try the Pentoo desktop (startx after bootup) because it contains everything already installed that you will need for GNU Radio as well as a good assortment of other hacking tools.
Use the hackrf_info command to verify your device is attached. Download and install the latest firmware and CPLD to your HACKRF One too.
Now the fun begins.
Oh, I got everything working fine on Ubuntu too. (I was watching Futurama shows from the disc boxset I had just received last week from Amazon too during the install).
I was having some trouble with the micro USB port, but maybe I need a new USB cable. If that doesn't fix it, I think I'll make a little modification so that it has a full size USB-B port. Those don't wear out as easily.
