How the HackRF worked out for this task!

HackRF ATV Analog TV Station Experiments On Ham. I tried various TV modes with HackRF SDR radio transceiver. First I did testing to the unit for basic transmit. Then worked
my way up to still SSTV images, Then experimentd on various bands. Then moved on to old analog TV. I experimented with a handheld television to receive my signals around the house.
Then I moved on to live Television on 40 meters Ham. It also works. I just don't know many hams in the area to try and have a live two way conversation from a considerate distance.
That will be my next test and setup someday!

The hackRF is a interesting software defined transceiver. And they have come down in price over the last couple of years. They are now affordable even for poor folks like me! I was
able to easily find a couple of them on Ebay to experiment with at a fair price.

There is still much to lean with SDR. I am just beginning my journey with using GNU Radio. What a fully loaded system that is! For  now I have experimented with Windows software
"SDR Angel" The latest version works very well with the HackRF. The older versions had audio frame timing issues. I reported it on github and they fixed it in the later months. Thank
you SDR Angel!
