PandwaRF is a pocket-sized, portable RF analysis tool operating in the sub-1 GHz range. It allows the capture, analysis and re-transmission of RF via an Android device or a Linux PC. Practically, it removes the ‘standard SDR Grind’ of capturing, demodulating, analyzing, modifying and replaying by hand – replacing it with a simple but powerful interface.

The Wundertooth is a remix of the Ubertooth One by Great Scott Gadgets. Each Wundertooth is programmed, tested, and fully assembled prior to shipping. A quick comparison of the two devices is shown below.
The Wundetooth is an open source 2.4 GHz wireless development platform suitable for experimentation.
2.4 GHz transmit and receive.
Transmit power and receive sensitivity comparable to a Class 1 device.
In-System Programming (ISP) serial connector.
Expansion connector: intended for inter-Ubertooth communication or other future uses.
Six indicator LEDs.
In addition to monitoring communications, the Ubertooth One can also be used as a 2.4Ghz spectrum analyzer.
WARNING: The Wundertooth is test equipment for 2.4 GHz systems. It has not been tested for compliance with regulations governing transmission of radio signals. You are responsible for using your Ubertooth One legally.

Add a PortaPack H1 to your HackRF One software-defined radio, and leave your laptop behind! The PortaPack H1 attaches to your HackRF and adds a touchscreen LCD, navigation controls, headphone jack, real-time clock, micro SD card slot, and custom aluminum case.
Just add a USB battery, and you're ready to explore radio spectrum wherever you are. The PortaPack firmware runs on the fast ARM processors in your HackRF. No computer is necessary (except for reprogramming firmware).
Here's a quick run-through of the current firmware features as of 2016 February 22:
Some features demonstrated in 2016 February 22 firmware video:
SSB, AM, narrowband FM, wideband FM audio reception, with spectrum waterfall. [Details]
Wideband (18MHz) spectrum analysis and waterfall.
Monitoring of boat (AIS), automobile (TPMS), and utility meter transponders (ITRON ERT). [Details]
HackRF mode runs HackRF firmware for use with host computer SDR software.
PPM calibration for more accurate tuning.
Sleep mode saves power by turning off just the display.
The PortaPack H1 is open-source -- hardware and firmware. The source files are published on GitHub. Contributions, forks, and bug reports are welcome!
