New Owner Questions [S-meter OV, audio underruns, tags, GPS sensitivity]
I am a new owner of the KiwiSDR, and after having it running for just over a week now, I am very pleased with it's performance. Thanks to John, he guided me to get it working and now on SDR.hu.
I am however having a few small problems that I would like to know a bit more about.
1. On the S-Meter, even with a low signal report, I get the "OV" light up, is this normal, and should I worry about it?
2. Occasionally the web page (with my SDR) stops with "audio underrun", I have to refresh the page, and it's back to normal. Is this happening because I am using something else on my PC? (running through Chrome). Checking the log, does show this error message.
3. I notice the tags at the top of the frequency, is it possible to easily to add my own tags, or are they imported from a source file?
4. I need to put the GPS antenna outside, as it does not show any acquired signals.
I intend to open this full time, currently on my main HF antenna, will build something to free it up, and add a rf protector box to save the front end. I see DX Engineering has a suitable unit, just need to order and ship it down.
Please check it out, and tell me how it goes, or what I can do better.
And thanks for your time, Regards Kevin, ZL1KFM.
