       hackrf_transfer - file based transmit and receive sdr


       The  HackRF  project  started  by  Michael Ossmann and Jared Boone to build software radio
       peripheral using Free Software and Free Hardware  design.  Care  was  taken  to  only  use
       electronic  components  with  published  documentation  (no  NDAs!)  and to avoid software
       libraries without open source licenses.

       Jawbreaker is the first complete HackRF platform, a wideband  software  radio  transceiver
       with a USB interface.

       This application lets the user receive data from RF and transmit data to RF.


       hackrf_transfer [OPTIONS]


       -r <filename> # Receive data into file.

       -t <filename> # Transmit data from file.

       -w # Receive data into file with WAV header and automatic name.

        # This is for SDR# compatibility and may not work with other software.

       [-f set_freq_hz] # Set Freq in Hz

       [-a set_amp] # Set Amp 1=Enable, 0=Disable.

       [-l gain_db] # Set lna gain, 0-40dB, 8dB steps

       [-i gain_db] # Set vga(if) gain, 0-62dB, 2dB steps

       [-x gain_db] # Set TX vga gain, 0-47dB, 1dB steps

       [-s sample_rate_hz] # Set sample rate in Hz (8/10/12.5/16/20MHz)

       [-n num_samples] # Number of samples to transfer (default is unlimited).

       [-b baseband_filter_bw_hz] # Set baseband filter bandwidth in MHz.
               Possible values:
               default < sample_rate_hz.
