  2. Install Java JRE 64bit v1.8+
  3. Download the latest version of Spectrum Analyzer and unzip
  4. Install HackRF as a libusb device
  5. Download Zadig and run
  6. Goto Options and check List All Devices
  7. Find "HackRF One" and select Driver "WinUSB" and click install
  8. Install (if you don't have one installed) Java JRE for Windows x64
  9. Run "hackrf_sweep_spectrum_analyzer.exe"

Linux (beta - only ubuntu tested):

  1. Needs to be compiled first, so you'll need to install these packages:
    sudo apt install build-essential ant git libusb-1.0 libfftw3 libfftw3-dev openjdk-8-jdk
  2. git clone --depth=1 --recurse-submodules
  3. cd hackrf-spectrum-analyzer/src/hackrf-sweep/
  4. make
  5. build/

Known issues:

  • Spectrum updates stop on parameter change
    • Solution: press reset button on the HackRF (firmware bug)
