  • Thanks for the video and comments, Ron. I have been away for a few weeks, so just catching up on my Kiwi reading. 73Peter
  • "Title tags on all the buttons and functions to help newbies." I think a small explanation 'bubble' when the button is hovered over would reduce the need for a separate 2nd guide as the existing guide pop out guide already provides a lot of informat…
  • Looks good John. I like the coloured buttons. I miss the MUTE button on the top layer. When I first load and it blasts sound into the room when someone is sleeping nearby (as this morning), it is good to have a button on top that I can hit quickly. …
  • Thanks Martin, I will add that change to the pull request and hope it doesn't stop other browsers from downloading automatically. We will see.... Chrome on W10 still works. If I understand the Autosave IBP comment, it sounds like the saved image is …
  • Hi Martin, I have made a minor change to see if it makes a difference (although I am pessimistic). I looked into a completely different option, opening a new tab instead of downloading, but it triggered all sorts of popup blocker problems. Perhaps, …
  • Thanks Martin. I had forgotten about that problem. Is that in both Safari and Chrome? I will see if I can find a solution. Looks like it may be related to this iOs feature http://bgr.com/2016/09/19/ios-10-update-save-image-missing/
  • I have updated the IBP_scan features and the waterfall saving. http://kiwisdr.ve3sun.com:8073/ I would love feedback from Martin or anyone else on different browsers and devices in case there are problems. I was thinking that a very long touch on t…
  • Hi Martin,  I have been away for a while. I am making some changes to the scan and the automatic waterfall image save to take the new features into account. In general the scan is OK with some fill in, except for the 1 Hz which can miss the tranmiss…
  • The context menu (right click) Save Waterfall as JPG will give you something like this (after John merges the latest pull of IBP): Are you looking for more information that a GUI snapshot would give? I could insert it on the jpg file. Right now yo…
  • I have added a scale for you...
  • What a coincidence. I was just thinking about listening for the Jupiter emissions last night as I was driving home. I haven't listened to them in a while - like 55 years! Yikes.
  • Based on your idea, I did a time lapse view of the broadcast band during this mornings gray line transition from dark to light. Interesting watching the change from DX to local stations over that period. With Faststone you can just hold down the PgU…
  • Nice. I will have to correlate the broadband noise with our furnace running. I have sent the merge request to John. BTW, Faststone Image Viewer has lots of batch rename features that can help prepare files for FFMPEG time lapse creation. I used the …
  • Interesting that firefox seems to squeeze the extension window. I will check that later. I will look into alternate filenames for you. I would like to put more info in an exif, but don't think that capability is easy in the browsers. Will see. It sh…
  • You can try it on my kiwi  http://kiwisdr.ve3sun.com:8073/ Apparently some of my code wasn't compatible with some browsers, so I am testing locally first. Good chance to catch bugs or other browser problems I don't see here. - Peter
  • http://ve3sun.com/KiwiSDR/IBP.html take a look. Once John merges, let me know if there is anything I can change to help you do what you want to do. You can capture 10 seconds to 2 minutes of waterfall on intervals of 10 seconds to 1 hour. That sho…
  • The current project is to finish the IBP scan features. Then I will look at how to extend it for your case. Here is where I am going now: http://ve3sun.com/KiwiSDR/IBP.html I should have it ready to merge for John tomorrow unless something falls ap…
  • You can manually do that with the right click menu now - saving the current waterfall when you want. The automatic beacon save works every 3 minutes after a full cycle of all the beacons on a band. How long a snapshot would you want in each image? I…
  • I added automatic snapshots to the IBP extension a while ago. So adding other similar features is quite possible if there is a need. How would you like to see it work?
  • I still remember a cartoon from back then showing a guy from Africa who mixed his English with whistles, pops and static crashes. He explained that he learned English listening to shortwave broacasts. I am not sure many would get that, today.
  • Mostly I listen to the IBP beacons.  But since I have been playing around with the Kiwis I have stumbled across some SWL adventures that take me back to my earliest days. Hearing CHU again reminded me of my childhood days with a radio that glowed in…
  • The waterfall saving addition is now available for John to merge if he feels it worthwhile. Also included in the latest update is an additition to the IBP_Scan extension, which autosaves the waterfall once every 3 minutes to watch the beacons, being…
  • I've been thinking about noise blankers, notch filters and LMS noise reduction filters. My first thoughts were to process the audio in the tried and true way. But after watching the European thunderstorms while trying to listen to 3C0L I noticed how…
  • Thanks John. I don't think there is any rush unless someone is anxious out there. :) I have been thinking of other features to add to that menu. Personally, I would like to have adding a tag note as a menu item instead of just the shift-click. I ten…
  • Once there is a mobile friendly web interface it can easily be rolled into an app with a webview. Although, it is hardly necessary, then as webapps are just like apps without the app store. I would like to see a minimal interface with just audio and…
  • My eyes must be going. I have gone over that quickstart multiple times and not seen that one. Thanks!
  • I have been thinking about the coordinated hopping to monitor WSPR on multiple bands with one receiver instance. A look at the WSPR database indicates that a few (but not many) stations are transmitting on the schedule. Even so, it would be useful t…
  • > jks > Ah, okay. That python code depends on a more recent version of the Kiwi server API. It should probably fetch the version number and complain if the API is incompatible. Seeed still ships Kiwis from the factory with v1.2 installed I be…
  • Another option might be to use an Android tablet running Chrome. I can run KiwiSDR on my Nexus 7 tablet, but for some reason, not on my Nexus 5 phone. Interesting. Anyway, the Nexus 7 is currently running WSPR and we will see how long it runs...
  • I started using this myself so added some features to the DX Cluster page: You can click on the LISTEN button to open your own (or another) KiwiSDR on the frequency.
