  • This is another receiver with the signal at 8.175 MHzhttp://southwest.ddns.net:8073/ Ron - KA7U
  • John,Interesting discussion on github. Over my head for sure, but still I get the idea of it. Once your extension can save the image to a file, it will be great. I'm not sure how many options it might need, but I think setting it to monitor and down…

  • John,I did not write this very well. Sorry. I'm talking about the client computer. Other operations mean just about anything from having a mouse moving to open a tab on a web browser to scrolling down a page in a word processor. Generally I find tha…

  • John,This version is opening in the Chromebook browsers. Glad you found the problem for this.Ron - KA7U
  • Don't worry Martin, András is busy with his PSK31 and other extensions, not to mention school, work, and life. I understood his last and gracious email, to be a NO! Ron - KA7U
  • John,I did the explicit refresh and also went to History and deleted the cache and hosted app data. Still the link http://kiwisdr.jks.com:8074/admin will not display on this Chromebook.Ron - KA7U
  • John,The link: http://kiwisdr.jks.com:8074/admin fails to display on the Chromebook. Version 57.0.2987.146 (64-bit)Platform 9202.64.0 (Official Build) stable-channel peppyFirmware Google_Peppy.4389.93.0 and the Ubuntu running in a chroot on…
  • I've written to András and suggested a different rating system for the receivers listed at sdr.hu . You never know, he might consider a usage based rather than a vote based rating system.Ron - KA7U
  • James,on the FLDIGI audio tab I check Pulse and leave the server string box blank. I think it defaults to the local Pulse server which would be something like local host or 127.0.0.1, or some such local IP address. You could feed FLDIGI from a netwo…

  • I did the rebuild. No change. Admin page fails to display, although 
  • Chuck,repeating lines happen here from time to time. Sometimes grounding the antenna and then ungrounding causes the signals to go away, sometimes not. Random stuff from an RF neighbor somewhere. I often have harmonics from MW band at random times. …
  • James,I should have also said that the connecting applications, all applications for that matter need to use Pulse audio in the settings, if such a thing is configurable. For example FLDIGI will need to have Pulse Audio specified and if you use WINE…

  • James,After the application you need to send audio to is started, look in the recording tab of Pavucontrol and select the correct audio stream available to feed the audio. It is usually a monitor of the default sound card. See the screenshot showing…

  • I've had it working in the past, but since Pulse Audio came out I've been using that with Pavucontrol and that is easier to use in my opinion.https://wiki.debian.org/PulseAudiohttp://0pointer.de/blog/projects/when-pa-and-when-not.html Ron - KA7U

  • I've used the noip client for several years. It works just fine on a Raspberry PI running Debian.https://www.noip.com/support/knowledgebase/installing-the-linux-dynamic-update-client-on-ubuntu/ Ron - KA7U

  • James, brings up this web site: http://www.mwlist.org/ul_login.phpwith the current frequency lookup.  It is a very nice addition. Thank you John.Ron - KA7U
  • I have Ubuntu and openSUSE desktops here. Linux Mint will boot from a USB stick, so the Rosa version of Linux Mint could be downloaded and run from the USB stick. Rosa is not a current version, near as I can tell.  "about:plugins" in the URL box wil…
  • I have worked with this for a time now and all is quiet and operating as it should here. So a review of the problems. The KiwiSDR has operated here for quite some time without any boot problems, and then it seemed after version 1.77 or 1.76 it start…
  • John,I have sent you a message containing the link to a tar.gz containing all the logs. If you need to log into one of these KiwiSDR units, let me know and I'll setup a port forward for you.Ron - KA7U
  • My newest GPS antenna is this one:http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/831-3399 Cost delivered $20.44 I have it sitting inside the radio room on a steel cabinet. As you can see from the attached screen shot, it is doing great. Given it has a 5 met…
  • Phil,I've had a similar issue since the recent updates. A unit with a static IP does as you say, but a unit with DHCP reboots itself over and over. I find it necessary to pull the power, wait a minute, and plug the power back in to restart the KiwiS…
  • James,I'm not certain about this, but I think that the Navy, Coast Guard, and Marine Corps use tactical call signs that begin with N. So NMY-52 would not be a FCC issued call sign, but rather a Service issued tactical call sign. I'm not real sure wh…

  • My "Kiwi local" seems to be default to Pacific Time, so 1 hour slow. UTC time is right on. I got curious and set tzdata for my timezone and that messed things up, so it seems the tzdata should be set for UTC. Poked around a bit and think that root@k…
  • James,Maybe John hasn't checked in here. You might send him a personal message. I think setting the Threshold, Slope, and Decay in a given mode, and having it remembered when you come back to that mode, would be very nice. So I too, am hopeful.Ron -…

  • Bjane,One solution is to use a VPN. OpenVPN would be my choice and I would install it on a router using DD-WRT firmware that hosts the openVPN server. You would then generate sufficient keys for the users you wish to access the network and keep trac…
  • I try to keep 3 slices open to the public 24/7. Currently, inactivity timeout is set at 45 minutes. Some people tend to camp on a slice, but most of the time, there is an available slice. Some of the local users that have exceptionally high noise le…
  • James, I have a signal here tonight that might be described as long T and short E but without the character spacing. I think it is called Link 11. http://www.sigidwiki.com/wiki/Link-11 See screenshot below to see if it is what you are hearing and se…
  • John,You might not need to filter any complete bands, you might find you have 1 or 2 nearby stations that have strong received signals at your location. I would set the WF max slider for 0dB, go to the MW broadcast band and set the waterfall for "zo…

  • Martin,I looked a bit more and don't think it will pay you to look around at the above files. I read what is happening in Beagle_SDR_GPS/web/kiwi/Makefile and it seems that John has written special code to launch admin.html and mfg.html. I wasn't ab…
