PORTAPACK H2 + HACKRF ONE SDR Radio + Havoc Firmware + 0.5ppm TCXO GPS +3.2 inch Touch LCD + 1500mAh Battery + Metal Case
The option “B1, B2 and B3” contains the metal case (B1), Portapack (including battery – B2) and HackRF One (B3).
The option “B1 and B2” contains the metal case and Portpack (including battery).
The official firmware created for the PortaPack has several decoders and transmitters built into it, but the third party ‘Havoc’ firmware is really what you’ll want to use with it since it contains many more decoders and transmit options.
You can fully unleash the power of the Portapack as this comes with Havoc Firmware Installed!

Capture and Replay
One of the best things about the PortaPack is that it makes capture and replay of wireless signals like those from ISM band remote controls extremely easy. To create a capture you just need to enter the “Capture” menu, set the frequency of the remote key, press the red ‘R’ Record button and then press the key on the remote. Then stop the recording to save it to the SD Card.
Now you can go into the Replay menu, select the file that you just recorded and hit play. The exact same signal will be transmitted over the air, effectively replacing your remote key.
Using the 3.5mm audio jack the Portapack can also be used as a standard Push to Talk or voice activated walkie talkie radio. With a microphone plugged into the audio jack simply hold down the right button to push to talk. If required you can also enable multiple CTCSS tone options, as well as tones that look like they enable transmission to wireless headphones
There are generic OOK transmitter which can be programmed with custom data. This mode might be useful for experimenting with simple keyfobs, or things like home automatation switches.There are numerous transmit modes implemented that are questionable in most countries and could get you into huge trouble. These transmitters are purely to be used for internal testing with a faraday cage!
By connecting speakers to the Portapack’s 3.5mm audio jack you can easily listen in on standard NFM and WFM audio signals. ADS-B reception can be easily enabled on the PortaPack by selecting the inductor and lightning symbol on the top right. With the bias tee enabled you can receive aircraft.

Add a PortaPack to your HackRF One software-defined radio, and leave your laptop behind! The PortaPack attaches to your HackRF and adds a touchscreen LCD, navigation controls, headphone jack, real-time clock, micro SD card slot,
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).

Some assembly is required.
Your HackRF will continue to function with computer-based SDR software, when you put the PortaPack into “HackRF Mode”.
PortaPack is compatible only with the HackRF One. It is not compatible with the earlier HackRF Jawbreaker design. If you have an RF shield installed on your HackRF, the PortaPack should fit just fine. Compatibility with the HackRF Blue is experimental. One Blue owner has reported good results with minor mechanical interference between the PortaPack audio capacitors and the baseband header. If your HackRF Blue does not have a baseband header installed, you should have no mechanical problems.
PortaPack requires an external battery. Any USB-connected battery should work, though they vary widely in quality and poorly-designed batteries may inject voltage regulator noise into the radio.
The PortaPack and HackRF One will not replace your handheld ham radio receiver. Receive sensitivity varies from band to band, but will not perform as well as a true ham radio receive
