HackRF - Antenna for getting 2.4 Ghz frequency

Post by paulo » Fri Jun 27, 2014 4:04 am

Hello, I am new in sdr world. I am thinking about buying a HackRF, but my purpose is to get packets at 2.4 GHz frequency.
I am looking some HackRFs to sell, but the antennas operate between 75 MHz and 1 GHz.
I wonder if there is another antenna that is able to capture 2.4 GHz radio frequency. If yes, where can I buy it?

Thanks in advance.

2.4 GHz is used by WiFi, so any 2.4 GHz WiFi antenna should work well. You can find these types of antennas anywhere, try Amazon or Ebay.

But the doubt is: The protocol doesn't follow the standard ieee 802.11... is it possible to capture this signal?

Thanks.

It doesn't matter what the protocol is, if the signal is at 2.4 GHz you should use an antenna tuned for 2.4 GHz. Antennas have nothing to do with protocols, protocol decoding is all handled in the signal processing stage in software.
