Unboxing HackRF One


I just received the first few sample units with complete packaging.  This was a small shipment sent to me shortly before the big shipment to NooElec (which is en route now) containing all the Kickstarter rewards.

The packaging looks just as I anticipated, and it protects HackRF One well.

The enclosure looks fantastic!  Somehow it makes HackRF One seem even smaller than it does without an enclosure.

I like the light pipes, and I am very glad that I made a relatively late change to the design to accommodate a new SMA connector.  The connectors fasten securely to the enclosure, reducing stress on the PCB.

Reminder: A small number of backers still haven't completed the shipping address survey.  I need your address to ship your reward.

      It looks so awesome.
      Do you ship it in 'parts' for easy export ?
      Did we get tracking numbers ?

      *ponder* Does the HACKRF-HF/FULL-DUPLEX-HF Pledge levels come with SMA(male)-SMA(male) cable(s) to connect the HackRF One to the Ham It Up. I'm guessing yes since a USB cable is not explicitly mentioned, but it is kind of implied. Just wondering do i need to order one on nooelec while the shipping is still free.

      End result looks great. Wishing I had backed for more than just the PCB.
