Pre-orders are on the move, and other news

6 likes

As of today, all (post-Kickstarter) pre-orders have shipped to resellers!  I expect that most resellers will be shipping individual pre-orders next week.

Additionally, there are two new videos in the video series.  I will not announce every one here, but you can subscribe to the feed or follow me on twitter if you want to be notified when each one is released:

PROTOTYPE backers (and others) will be interested to read Jared's latest update on the HackRF PortaPack:

We're still catching up a little bit on shipping rewards to backers who submitted the shipping address survey late, but there aren't very many of those left.

I've kicked off the video series with the first lesson.  I hope you'll enjoy learning about SDR as I continue to post more videos:

Why is my package stuck in Chicago?

7 likes

A number of people have expressed concern about their international shipments appearing to be stuck in Chicago.  Don't worry.  Your package is not still in Chicago.

The US Postal Service provides tracking information for these shipments only until they leave US soil.  Most or all of the international shipments departed the US from Chicago, so that is the last update you'll see.

Someone on IRC recently reported that his or her package was already received in Denmark while the tracking information still indicated that it was in Chicago, so your package is probably already in your country and is working its way through customs and local delivery.

PCB Stencils

Those of you who have received the PCB reward may be looking for a solder paste stencil.  OSH Stencils (who made the nice laser cut acrylic cases for the PROTOYPE backers) has made it easy for you to order one right on the front page:

You will always be able to find the paste layer gerber file in the release package linked at:

The 2014.04.1 release is a permanent archive that matches the hardware revision of your PCB.

It is very exciting to see so many people talking about their new HackRF Ones on twitter and irc.  I've been updating the wiki with more information as people have asked questions.  In particular, I hope this new Getting Started page is helpful for everyone:

Mainly this week I am working on the video series.  I plan to start posting videos by the end of the week.

Thanks to everyone who said hello at Black Hat and DEF CON.  It was great to meet so many of you!
