Hackrf One Windows 10

It is designed for quick and easy testing and experimentation with GNU Radio and HackRf One, without having to make any permanent modifications to a PC or laptop. It is not, however, an installation DVD. It is supplied as a DVD ISO image to be downloaded and burned onto a recordable DVD disc.

In order to clearly see my screen during the demonstration, viewing the video in full screen mode may help. Even better: You can download this video in high resolution (720p). (torrent)
