+The unit is an entry level yet versatile SDR which provides coverage between
+$\approx10$MHz to $6$GHz, and DAB signals been successfully generated with it in
+VHF Band III (174-240 MHz), L-Band (1462 - 1467.5 MHz) and even the worldwide ISM
+Band (2400 - 2500 MHz). The latter (subject to local regulations) is a licence exempt
+band which may be useful for performing freely radiating tests at low power. Cheap
+MMDS converters are currently available which helpfully provide a Band III IF output
+providing a direct feed to the aerial input of a receiver. Before choosing a converter
+it is important to pay close attention to the specifications. The local oscillator
+phase noise performance, and the dynamic range (due to the heavy use of the band) are
+both particularly important.
To use HackRF, the output of ODR-DabMod must be set (in the configuration file) to
produce 8-bit signed integers, rather than the default complex floats.
