The HackRF could do for software defined radio (SDR) what the Arduino did for microcontrollers, or what the Raspberry Pi did for ARM boards.
Turn your Raspberry Pi into a portable Wi-Fi streaming radio. There are thousands of free radio stations on the internet, and with this project you can listen to all of them from one tiny little box. So lets build our streaming radio using a Raspberry Pi, a speaker and a few odds and ends
