Remote Kiwi Websdr and regular "power downs" or disconnects
Our team is running several remote Kiwi WEB Sdr's on an island in the Pacific Ocean
and one of them is dropping out on a regular basis -- We think it might be heat related -
as the shack temperature is occasionally exceeding 30 degrees C.
This particular Kiwi is in an metal enclosure -- and its "brother" is in the plastic enclosure and not giving us any issues.
Interestingly, if I "tune" into a station and sit on that frequency and set the TIME OUT's OFF, the receiver does not die or disconnect from the net or "go off the air..."
Thankfully we have a remote antenna switching array on it and a REMOTE power off/power on management model to it is easy to restart.
We've noticed that some folks are adding fans to their Kiwi -- is this because of the sensitivity to overheating? I am aware that the Kiwi really does not like temps of 40C and above.
Many thanks everyone!
