  • It restarted at 05:20 UTC. See below. To keep all the thousands of Kiwis out there (there have been many more sold than what appear on sdr.hu) from hitting github.com all at once the updates and restarts begin at 02:00 UTC. But they are spread out o…
  • This has been an open issue for almost a year now: https://github.com/jks-prv/Beagle_SDR_GPS/issues/5 Basically it is waiting for a "user preferences" capability to be introduced so the tuning method can be varied to individual taste. I'm not going …
  • v1.129 fixes an issue where a site with a 4G connection was having ipv6-related networking problems. This effected proxy registration and could very well cause trouble with software updates. The v1.129 update went out a few hours ago and already 100…
  • Some important clarification about the directory locations. Anything in /root/Beagle_SDR_GPS will be overwritten with a software update. So do not edit the files in /root/Beagle_SDR_GPS/unix_env/kiwi.config Files here are templates that are copied t…
  • The v1.128 release adds a file to /root/kiwi.config called dx.min.json that has most of the entries deleted. You can force an update immediately by restarting the Kiwi. From the admin console tab type these commands to use the new file ('cp' is the …
  • Confirmed with Firefox and Chrome with OS X on a MacBook. But things return to normal after the globaltuners.com tab is closed. So this is their problem, most likely runaway Javascript. I expect enough people will be yelling at them they will fix it…
  • Anything is possible, but you run the risk of disrupting the carefully balanced realtime requirements of the Kiwi code. Particularly when there are multiple connections. Much easier to buy another inexpensive BeagleBone or even cheaper R-Pi. Also no…
  • Hi. Yes, what you want to do is possible. But it is a lot of work. It is maybe easier to start with the GPS code that does not have the Kiwi SDR code parts: http://www.jks.com/sdgps/sdgps.html This code just runs a program on the Beagle that prints …
  • This helps quite a bit: https://www.sigidwiki.com/wiki/Signal_Identification_Guide From our friends at http://rtl-sdr.com A: JORN, Over-the-horizon-radar (OTHR) from Australia. Note the short intro tone in the middle of the passband. This distinguis…
  • No one has complained that they needed to turn the new sound latency changes off (by toggling SND from green to white). So I'll probably remove the button in the next release.
  • On the Beagle: /root/Beagle_SDR_GPS/web/openwebrx/index.html But any changes to this file will be overwritten when a software update occurs (if you have updates enabled). Also note that a lot of HTML is inserted dynamically into the DOM by Javascrip…
  • Yes, really excellent reception. Congrats. Even on VLF/LF. Huge carrier on 25976 though. I wonder who that is?
  • My guess is this will be the dead Ethernet PHY problem. I don't know where you originally purchased your Kiwi from, or when. But I'd be happy to reimburse you for the replacement Beagle if it cures the problem.
  • Seeed says "end of this month (September)". The final prototype with engraving has been approved and I've seen a copy of the final assembly manual. They just have to get it into production and onto their website for sale.

  • Have you tried removing the Kiwi board from the Beagle? This does two things: It reduces the total +5V current draw in case there is some problem with your power supply. With the board removed you can check the temperature of the Ethernet PHY chip, …
  • It's not that simple. The Kiwi is a very complicated realtime system. There is a careful balance of resources to minimize the cost of the device while maximizing the number of supported channels. This means there is sometimes a tradeoff between FPGA…
  • Sorry, I expressed that incorrectly. It was meant to convey my constant disillusionment with the state of HTML/JS/CSS/Web-framework development, which I am fairly new to. I spend 20 times the amount of effort dealing with Web/UI issues than the unde…
  • Problem with IBP_scan extension not appearing on iOS will be fixed in today's release (welcome to the world of cross-browser compatibility Peter, lol)Also formatting improvements for Windows browsers.
  • This is actually a bug. The WSPR code incorrectly thinks a transverter is in use when the "coverage frequency low" on the sdr.hu tab is anything but zero. It should really be when low and high are both > 32 MHz. I'll fix in the next release.
  • Peter's IBP scanner is now a built-in extension in the v1.123 release.
  • sendmail() is just a js routine that processes an obfuscated email address and applies it to a mailto:This is done to keep the email cleartext out of the js and hopefully away from the Internet email scrapers.
  • Martin: Done. I forgot you had multiple, switchable antennas. Ron: See comments #25 and 26 in this thread. It's an experiment and not many Kiwis have been "rated" yet (the GPS tag is automatic however).
  • Hi Pascal, Yes, unless your router implements something called "hairpinning" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_address_translation#NAT_loopback) it won't correctly process a connection attempt to your Kiwi public address made from your local ne…
  • > Do I need permission to use the http://kiwisdr.com/public data? You have it. And so does anyone else who wants to implement a useful/alternate UI looking at the data. At the moment each Kiwi only updates the database every 30 minutes. This is b…
  • "Please check kiwisdr.com/bugs before posting here" This is a bug in all browsers and cannot be fixed, apparently.
  • The overload event and OV flag on the S-meter are not optimal at the moment. If the ADC reports even ONE overflow during sampling an overload event is signaled (and latched until cleared by software). This of course is way too pessimistic. There wil…
  • As you correctly guessed, the GPS icon is auto-derived. The other two are selected based on a database entry on kiwisdr.com (i.e. they're not something the Kiwi admin can specify). This is just an experiment. I'm not sure it's a good idea. My criter…
  • I guess I'll have to read up about how that works. I've never used it before. Can the necessary HTML/JS be auto-generated by Kiwi code or will there have to be an admin panel interface for certain parameters?
  • Okay, v1.120 has some jog buttons. But I put them in the IQ display extension because it was easier to do than the manual cal panel and you really need to have the IQ display open anyway to see the rotation of a time station carrier to do accurate f…
  • There is also the Pavlova dispatcher: https://github.com/priyom/pavlova With a little work you could setup your own custom dispatcher using only the Kiwis you like to use. And then define custom "area codes" (see https://github.com/priyom/pavlova/bl…
