Where to learn about Software Defined Radio?

Recommended Posts

So I'm considering getting the hak5 field kit, and I noticed that it comes with the software define radio. I know enough about the rest of the contents to justify my purchase, but to be honest I don't have the slightest clue what the SDR is, what it's uses are, or how to use it. Could anyone point me in the right direction? I feel like I've learned more about GSM in the past thirty minutes than I ever have..

Well, what are you interested in? Hak5 does have an SDR specific kit that does come with the HackRF One. Now as you said you just started learning about SDR's. The Hak5 Field Kit is pretty pricey but you can purchase the RTL-SDR on its own in the HakShop. If you are outside of the US it would make more sense to buy it from Amazon (where I got mine). I find that it's a fun hobby and something worth looking into, I think the best place to see if SDR's are for you is here. It is a BlackHat Europe 2014 lecture that really peaked my interest in SDR's, after that I say just watch some SDR related Hak5 episodes.
