Excerpt

Getting into Software Defined Radio (SDR) used to require extensive
hardware knowledge, but easy-to-use platforms like HackRF are changing
that. The GNU Radio software framework is also easier to work with than
it once was. I'll show you how to get started with the software side of
SDR and cover the essential techniques needed to discover, analyze, and
produce radio signals with GNU Radio and HackRF.

Description

Getting into Software Defined Radio (SDR) used to require extensive
hardware knowledge, but easy-to-use platforms like HackRF are changing
that. The GNU Radio software framework is also easier to work with than
it once was. I’ll show you how to get started with the software side of
SDR and cover the essential techniques needed to discover, analyze, and
produce radio signals with GNU Radio and HackRF.

My concept for this talk is that most attendees already know what SDR is
and why it is a cool phenomenon in the world of open source. I’ll start
with a very short introduction to HackRF and then spend 90% of the time
demonstrating practical SDR techniques the people can put to use
immediately if they have a HackRF or any other SDR hardware.
