      Neil: Yes, I'm working on plans to make the telescopic antenna available through HackRF resellers after the Kickstarter rewards ship.

      Creator Matthew O'Gorman on March 20

      yes the hackrf can transmit or receive when connected to the upverter, in half duplex mode.

      Will the Ham It Up converter allow transmitting as well as receiving on the HF bands? Or does the converter only enable receiving in the HF portion of the spectrum? Thanks.

      Hi Michael,

      First, thanks for the great work. Second, wondering when we/I should expect the prototype. I know you've had to wait for parts for some of it. Do you have a revised date of delivery? Thanks!

      Creator Neil Hurst on February 25

      Will you sell the antennas you are providing to the Prototype backers? I would buy both, LPA and WiFi antennas

      Chris: The final dimensions are 120 mm x 75 mm. There are corner holes in the Sick of Beige style. Additionally you'll have to design around the connectors, buttons, and LEDs. The best source of information is the board layout in KiCad.

      Just watched your TAPR DCC lecture. Your presentation was fantastic. Your strong belief in Open Hardware and Open Software in making design decisions earns my respect. /salute http://www.youtube.com/watch…

      Dear Michael

      When is the shipment of the HackRF prototypes scheduled?

      You last talk on HackRF was wounderful. I'm looking forward to the YouTube classes.

      I may start an electronics KickStarter project of my own. Are you available for a little consulting?

      Creator silverk on January 15

      Dear Michael. Have you sent out HackRF prototypes already? Initial date was in October last year. Is the January deadline for prototypes or for final version?

    15. Hexley.small

      Creator Chris Johnson on January 15

      Hi Michael, Is there finalized dimensions on the unit? I can start designing a printable case now if I was able to get that ahead of time.

    16. Missing_small

      Creator Matt Carlson on January 14

      Unless I missed it, what is the target ship date on the HackRF now? Still quite a bit of time in January, and I thought I saw boards were finalized, but just curious!

    17. Mike-and-milo.small

      Creator Michael Ossmann on January 11

      Chris: I'm not 3D printing anything and don't have any STL files. If someone contributes a design, I would be happy to put it into the repo.

    18. Hexley.small

      Creator Chris Johnson on January 9

      Could we get the STL files for the case so we can print our own enclosures?

      @Reece Davic Cole:
      Why shouldn't it? It's an SDR so all modulation is done by software. So, I guess, yes, it should.

      Creator Reece David Cole on November 13

      Will the finished HackRF support AM transmission?

      Hello , can publish the parts list with components necessary to build the HackRF only for reception?

      Creator Michael Ossmann on September 17, 2013

      Thanks, Chris. I just returned home from several days out of town and found some damage to the house, but we're fine.

      I hope you and your loved ones are safe from the flooding, Michael. Praying for those in CO.

      Creator Kalus on September 5, 2013

      I'am fairly new to SDR so i appreciate the stretch goal to learn more about it until delivery.
      It's impressive to get such a high flexibility at this quite low price.
      Finally i hope there will be no delivery-problems by our customs regulations in germany...

      Nice one Michael, half a mill. Got to feel happy with that turn out and you did it avoiding feature creep on kickstarter! Who would of thought being dissatisfied/curious with/about Bluetooth devices would ultimately lead you here :) Congrats.

      Just few minutes left... Congratulations Michael on a successful KS looking forward to receive my HackRF I wanted two but unfortunately I do not have the funds this month... can we still add to our pledge say via PayPal next month?

      Wylie Standage-Beier, take a look at update number 11... there is a clock sync implemented so it should work for you.

    38. Missing_small

      Creator Wylie Standage-Beier on September 4, 2013

      Hello Micheal,
      I am a Electrical engineering student focusing on RF and signal processing, I ordered a hackRF out of personal interest for these devices and I am hoping to make this into a part of my senior design next semester. I would like to have multiples of these boards linked and sinked with one and an other for making a Phased array RADAR receiver. I have tried this with the USB TV tuners and the problem is there is no way of sinking the sampling of the 2 hackRF? or maybe an expansion board? I saw the B1AUX1-16 pins on the CPLD to some headers. Also would require that the demodulating signals to be in a known phase to each other.
      Thoughts?

      Creator Michael Ossmann on September 3, 2013

      Matthew: I added a FAQ.

    40. Missing_small

      Creator Matthew on September 3, 2013

      Hey, so I have a dilemma - I've suddenly realized that my budget for the next 6 months is going to be really tight, but then loosen up significantly. Would it be possible to cancel my pledge now, but buy the HackRF later? Any idea how far back that would set the date on which I'd receive the HackRF? This is a really cool project; I'm just not sure I can justify the expenditure right now, since I may be asking people for loans in about 5 months.

      Todd: PROTOTYPE is the same as HACKRF-HF plus extras to ship in October.

    42. Missing_small

      Creator Todd on September 2, 2013

      I just want to verify that the PROTOTYPE pledge is the "full meal deal". Just want to make sure that you can do everything the lower levels let you do but more.... the wording in it kind of throws me off.

    43. Mike-and-milo.small

      Creator Michael Ossmann on September 2, 2013

      Jeremy: January is still my target. If we have any delays, the most likely cause will be component availability. I'll order components as soon as the Kickstarter funds are made available to me in late September, so any such delays should become apparent by early October.

    44. Mike-and-milo.small

      Creator Michael Ossmann on September 2, 2013

      Mark: The specifications we have so far are on the wiki: https://github.com/mossmann/hackrf/wiki/Jawbreaker Receive sensitivity isn't something that can be generally measured on an SDR platform because it depends highly on a particular application and configuration.

    45. Mike-and-milo.small

      Creator Michael Ossmann on September 2, 2013

      Osman: The PortaPack is included with the PROTOTYPE reward, but it looks like all of them have been claimed. Jared is working on making the PortaPack available for individual sale by the time we ship the Kickstarter rewards, so you'll be able to get one that way.

    46. Mike-and-milo.small

      Creator Michael Ossmann on September 2, 2013

      Dennis: Ham It Up is available to order separately. You can order one today and start using it with an rtl-sdr dongle, for example. No promise, but there might be an opportunity to bundle the shipments if you wait until we're getting ready to ship the Kickstarter rewards.

      Creator Jeremy Southard on September 2, 2013

      Hey Michael,

      With such a successful Kickstarter, and thousands of devices to be produced, is January still the target date or has this been adjusted due to the quantity of devices being manufactured?

    48. Missing_small

      Creator Mark Mc Nicholas on September 1, 2013

      Hi Michael
      Really looking forward to this it looks like an amazing piece of kit, I tip my hat to you on your hard work. Any chance of seeing some of the spec's like sensitivity etc I know they would be from a beta board but would still be interesting to see
      I hope this project takes off for you

      Hello Micheal, is it possible to increase my pledge for a portapack ? If yes how much does it cost ? If no where can we order one? Congratulations on reaching 1/2 million and looking forward to receive my HackRF... One last wish/request is it possible to engrave my name as owner on the HackRF pcb? Thank you
