HackRF One has an injection molded plastic enclosure and ships with a micro USB cable. An antenna is not included. We have found good results using the Diamond SRH-779.
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.
The HackRF is aimed at the radio experimenter, examples of usage include but certainly not limited to: pen-testing, security, R&D, DAB Radio transmitter, General RX and so much more.. Instructions are clear and plentiful but there are some prerequisites you must understand or know of before you can get the best from these units..
