NEW PRODUCTS – Great Scott Gadgets Software Defined Radio Products: HackRF One, ANT500, ANT700, YARD Stick One
HackRF One from Great Scott Gadgets is a Software Defined Radio peripheral capable of transmission or reception of radio signals from 1 MHz to 6 GHz. Designed to enable test and development of modern and next generation radio technologies, HackRF One is an open source hardware platform that can be used as a USB peripheral or programmed for stand-alone operation.
Great for listening on RF emitters and transmitting on ISM bands (check your country’s ISM frequencies before transmitting). It’s even better if you are HAM licensed with an ultra-wide range of transmitting frequencies (basically, all of them)!
- 1 MHz to 6 GHz operating frequency
- Half-duplex transceiver
- Up to 20 million samples per second
- 8-bit quadrature samples (8-bit I and 8-bit Q)
- Compatible with GNU Radio, SDR#, and more
- Software-configurable RX and TX gain and baseband filter
- Software-controlled antenna port power (50 mA at 3.3 V)
- SMA female antenna connector
- SMA female clock input and output for synchronization
- Convenient buttons for programming
- Internal pin headers for expansion
- Hi-Speed USB 2.0
- Open source hardware
HackRF One is test equipment for RF systems. It has not been tested for compliance with regulations governing the transmission of radio signals. You are responsible for using your HackRF One legally.
YARD Stick One (Yet Another Radio Dongle) can transmit or receive digital wireless signals at frequencies below 1 GHz. It uses the same radio circuit as the popular IM-Me. The radio functions that are possible by customizing IM-Me firmware are now at your fingertips when you attach YARD Stick One to a computer via USB.

- Half-duplex transmit and receive
- Official operating frequencies: 300-348 MHz, 391-464 MHz, and 782-928 MHz
- Unofficial operating frequencies: 281-361 MHz, 378-481 MHz, and 749-962 MHz
- Modulations: ASK, OOK, GFSK, 2-FSK, 4-FSK, MSK
- Data rates up to 500 kbps
- Full-Speed USB 2.0
(Official operating frequencies are guaranteed to work. Unofficial operating frequencies work in our experience.)
YARD Stick One comes with RfCat firmware installed, courtesy of atlas. RfCat allows you to control the wireless transceiver from an interactive Python shell or your own program running on your computer. YARD Stick One also has CC Bootloader installed, so you can upgrade RFCat or install your own firmware without any additional programming hardware.
Originally based on the ToorCon 14 Badge design, YARD Stick One has several featured not previously seen in CC1111 platforms:
- SMA connector for external antennas such as ANT500
- Receive amplifier for improved sensitivity
- Transmit amplifier for higher output power
- Strong RF performance across the entire operating frequency range
- Low pass filter for elimination of harmonics when operating in the 800 and 900 MHz bands
- Antenna port power control for compatibility with antenna port accessories designed for HackRF One
- GoodFET-compatible expansion and programming header
- GIMME-compatible programming test points
ANT500 is a telescopic antenna designed for operation from 75 MHz to 1 GHz. Its total length is configurable from 20 cm to 88 cm. ANT500 is constructed of stainless steel and features an SMA male connector, rotating shaft, and adjustable elbow.
ANT500 is a 50 ohm general purpose antenna. It is the perfect first antenna for use with HackRF One or YARD Stick One.
ANT700 is a lightweight telescopic antenna designed for operation from 300 MHz to 1100 MHz. Its total length is configurable from 9.5 cm to 24.5 cm. ANT700 is constructed of stainless steel and features an SMA male connector, rotating shaft, and adjustable elbow.
ANT700 is a 50 ohm general purpose antenna. It is the perfect first antenna for use with HackRF One or YARD Stick One.
