I’m super stoked to have more contestants! Here is what I would recommend this moment:

Cheap ham radio – http://amzn.to/2nosTXU

2-3 of these – http://amzn.to/2nZv0nN

Directional Antenna – http://amzn.to/2nFW5fb

Laptops running Kali (could just be USB booted)

SDR – http://amzn.to/2nZoXQ3 (Get it from somewhere else) – Send & Receive

SDR – http://amzn.to/2nox9qh (Cheap) Receive only

An old phone or webcam that does not have an IR filter *wink*

 

If you want some practice, have your hand at breaking WPA2, WEP, and locating hotspots with airodump.

If you didn’t get the SDR (software defined radio) you can do all but 3 of the challenges.

The only thing that may be hard to get in time is the Yardstick One SDR

The way better version of this is the HackRF One http://amzn.to/2noyrlm it’s expensive but incredible and on amazon

 

Best of Luck!
