Ordered a new "HackRF One" - ships on Monday

Yesterday 10/31/2014 I ordered a new "HackRF One" See Details

My plans are to play around with creating a multi-band beacon which emits 15dbm ( or about 31.6 mWCW.

Once I've managed to do that the obvious extension to me is to try to implement some of my previous work with "CDAR" using the HackRF as the radio.

At this point this is just something to play with this winter.  I like to have little projects to putz around with when it's too cold outside for anything else.  (read: helps avoid cabin fever :-)

I'll post findings as I go here.
