SparkFun Support and Front Desk will be closed on Thursday 11/14 from 1-2:30pm for a company event. Please plan to pick up your orders before or after this timeframe.
HAMlab is a fully functional SDR transceiver with 160-10m band coverage and 10W of output power built around the STEMlab platform. It gives you an out of the box, affordable and high performance SDR transceiver solution. All you need is an antenna and you can start your SDR experience! Even better, the HAMlab has been dubbed as the "Swiss Army Knife" for HAM radio operators by incorporating an oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, signal generator, bode analyzer, and logic analyzer (for an additional fee) making it an all in one desk top tool that can quickly become a necessity for anyone!
With the HAMlab being a plug and play SDR transceiver, it possesses a RX frequency range of 25KHz to 62.5MHz, a TX frequency range of 1MHz to 62MHz, low pass PA filter bands, and a direct sampling receiver architecture. All functions of the HAMlab are web based and won't require any installation of any applications since they can be accessed via a web browser on your smartphone, tablet, or a PC.
Please be aware that a few additional parts will be required for the HAMlab to function at peak efficiency. These parts include an HF Antenna (as mentioned before), stereo speakers or headphones, microphone, a router with enabled DHCP with an Internet connection, a 13.8VDC 4A power supply, and of course an active HAM radio license in case you want to transmit. A full list of these part requirements can be found in the Quickstart Guide in the Documents tab above.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Experienced - You will require a firm understanding of programming, the programming toolchain, and may have to make decisions on programming software or language. You may need to decipher a proprietary or specialized communication protocol. A logic analyzer might be necessary.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
