This ANT500 is a telescopic antenna designed for operation from 75 MHz to 1 GHz with a total length that is configurable from 20 cm to 88 cm long. Each ANT500 is constructed of stainless steel and features an SMA male connector, rotating shaft, and adjustable elbow.
The ANT500 is a 50 ohm antenna designed to match HackRF One. It is the perfect first antenna for general purpose use with HackRF One but we won't stop you from using it with different projects!

It does exactly what it should. As soon as I got it, I hooked it up to the HackRF, and was receiving the local NOAA stations (as a signal check) in no time. I love the fact that it is SMA, and affixes directly to the HackRF, and swivels to go vertical if the HackRF is sitting on the table. I do a fair amount of experimentation in the 2m and 70cm bands (as a ham), and the antenna can be tuned rather well for the 10 mW transmit in those bands (by sliding out sections). Bottom line, its an antenna, and it works.

Hi, I want to buy Simultaneous RFID Reader - M6E Nano and use it with external antennas. In the hookup guide, there are some high-gain antennas mentioned, which are quite expensive and hard to find. I was wondering if I can use this antenna to read RFID tags from 2-3 meters?
