In this way, can you transmit with SDR?

If you have the right hardware, yes you can, but not with the RTL-SDR. Some transmission capable SDRs include the HackRF, PlutoSDR, LimeSDR, LimeSDR Mini, and more.

Likewise, how does a SDR work? Software-defined radio (SDR) is a radio communication system where components that have been traditionally implemented in hardware (e.g. mixers, filters, amplifiers, modulators/demodulators, detectors, etc.) are instead implemented by means of software on a personal computer or embedded system.

Just so, what is HackRF one used for?

Designed to enable test and development of modern and next generation radio technologies, HackRF One is an open source hardware platform that can be used as a USB peripheral or programmed for stand-alone operation. HackRF One has an injection molded plastic enclosure and ships with a micro USB cable.

What is SDR in ham radio?

Software Defined Radio attempts to place much or most of the complex signal handling involved in communications receivers and transmitters into the digital (DSP) style. In its purest form, and SDR receiver might consist simply of an analog-to-digital convert chip connected to an antenna.

What is the difference between HDR and SDR?

SDR stands for Standard Dynamic Range. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. A 4K SDR TV has (approximately) 4000 lines of resolution (ie 4K) but is not capable of displaying the depth and richness of colours and contrast as HDR.
