HackRF one

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Pretty newbie. Need some powerful device to do pen-testing for cars and RFID cars. Which device to get?
HackRF One or YARD Stick One?

It seems like YARD Stick One is programmable? Say in python? But HackRF One is not programmable? Or am I wrong?

Thanks!

What kind of "programming" are you referring to?  Both can use python based programs for operation.

Yes.  There are a lot of projects on github that use python scripts for both hackRF and yardstick one.

But which device would you recommend? Money is no issue 😉

I have had both.  Both are nice.  The hackRF has some more features and is very well documented in many use cases.  If money is not a deciding factory, I would go with the hackRF.  It has wider tuning range, expansion ports, etc as well.

Last question, which antenna would you recommend to me?

The included antenna is a good starting place.  If you plan to do a lot of RFID or key fob working in for say the 433 MHz range then consider getting tuned antennas for those.  If you plan to use a certain program/script see what the author recommends from there testing.

both need one to receive one to transmit

That is true if you are looking for full duplex.  One downside to the two SDRs.
