  • sd card problem during backup

    In my case, out of 3 KiwiSDRs I purchased, two of them had a problem with the original card. An oxidized layer of white coating has formed on the contacts, which must be removed mechanically using, for example, a 0.5mm precision screwdriver. A few scrapes on each pin is enough and after this operation there is no problem with the recording.

  • GPS broken [fixed with software reinstall, root cause not understood]

    I had a similar case in August. On both receivers I only received one gps signal, which was very weak. Everything returned to normal by itself after 3-4 hours. Antennas glued to a metal roof 10m above the ground. In my opinion, it was either due to the heavily charged storm fronts at the time, or someone in the area was playing jamming the signal. To this day, the situation has not happened any more.
