  • Vultr very active with scanning my Kiwi the last couple of days and I added these as well: 149.28.162.0/23 45.77.112.0/21 45.77.84.0/22 149.28.195.108 45.76.248.0/21 45.76.112.0/20 45.77.96.0/20 This is like hydra, chop off one head and another one …
  • And also these added today (originating from vultr / constant) : 173.199.70.0/23 70.34.192.0/19 207.246.104.0/23 137.220.52.0/22 216.128.128.0/18
  • Just like Jim mentioned above, I also see that the ALE2G extension runs fine for a while and then just closes the channel with only a "LEAVING after ....." message in the log. This applies whether scan running or paused. Up to 3 instances …
  • Added another ip belonging to vultr.com to my local list: "155.138.139.75"  
  • Another awesome addition to KiwiSDR, specially using the heuristic approach in classifying the type of station out of a total of 13000 plus. Just having a quick look only for now I noticed that: 1/ The Fax category could use a lowering of the (usb)…
  • Yes, I also have seen anywhere between 12 min and 15 hrs before the decoding and the waterfall on the tabs where the ALE2G extension is running, stops. Tried different browsers on Linux and Windows. Checking the logs around the times when this happe…
  • Wow, many great improvements in V1.465 . Will need some time to check out and monitor before commenting further. Thanks for all the work building this extension.
  • Hi Ulli, It looks your Kiwi at 213.118.213.254:8074 is online at the moment..... 73 Ben
  • When scanning does the decode from pressing the test button stop the scan and then resume? Yes, it does in the situation of halting after a "scanning paused, signal detected event". The only other way I found is close then re-open the a…
  • Yes indeed, when opening an ALE extension first time the "current list" is loaded from kiwisdr.com and populates the Amateur, Govt, Milcom and Utility menus. This list -actually json file, as mentioned at the beginning of this thread - is …
  • Hi Martin, As an alternative instead of an url string: on the admin - extension - ALE_2G page you can enter your own scan group very easily and quickly. But then perhaps you have a situation in mind scanning on another Kiwi as a guest... 73 Ben
  • Using a BBAI Kiwi on a Win 8.1 machine and chromium browser. It can run 14 channels with the ALE2G extension however I noticed that using more than 8 ALE extensions the GPS processing starts suffering and becomes to a standstill beyond 10 (see atta…
  • Hi Martin, In SE Asia I still see quite a few traditional chirp sounders active. Although I can find the range to the GPS disciplined stations using Chirpview determining the location would require a Chirpview set-up at another location in the regio…
  • Hi August, After you click the WF tab you will see below the Auto Scale button another one called Slow Dev. Pushing it will change the spectrum display to colour. bregards, Ben
  • Hi Jakin, I do notice that you are asking about a Kiwi extension and although that would be preferable you could have a look at KG-HFDL, which is an excellent HFDL decoder with integrated map display and Arinc-714A selcal decoder all built in. It w…
  • Jim, WA2ZKD allowed me to use his Kiwi for some scanning tests and the results are shown in the attached "results ALE scan 20210605.txt" I used Catsync with his Kiwi loaded and a frequency database of 10 channels to scan at different rates…
  • Could not test AMD with gr-ale due to some errors in my GRC installation. Thanks for the info.
  • Hi John, I guess most HF utility DX listeners will be already be happy with the data currently displayed for traffic analysis and propagation checks. If AMD messages can be displayed and additional n seconds voice after a 3-way handshake can also be…
  • Hi Jim, is it possible to program an AMD message in your Harris PRC-150 in addition to the sounding. Just to see if that is detected also in this extension?
  • Hi Jim, Thank you for the hint. I found all needed info in https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/ConnMan . Next I used the BBAI cloud9 IDE interface and deleted the older wifi directories from var/lib/connman. A Beagle reboot seemed necessary for the cha…

  • I have been using the native wifi on the BBAI successfully for quite a while and this really helps a lot cutting down the common mode Ethernet noise. Just recently I changed to another ISP and entered the new wifi credentials by the way as shown in …

  • Thank you Nick for your advise. I will try to find a well equipped notebook service centre first that can do reflow work before trying that myself. In Taipei I would know where to go, but in Jakarta that could be a bit more difficult. Ben
  • Just returning to this now 2 year old discussion. Comparing with MultiPSK I noted that the gnuradio OOT gr-ale module works quite well in single (and multi-channel channel) mode. Sensitivity for weak signals and decodes are almost similar. The gr-a…
  • I have a somewhat similar case here, where the 3.3 has a hard short on the Kiwi board. I already removed C301 to no effect. Feeding it with a current limited external power supply the EEPROM stays cool and the FPGA seems to absorb all the heat. Ch…
  • To try out SuperSDR, the installation instructions are at https://github.com/mcogoni/supersdr/

  • http://forum.kiwisdr.com/uploads/180/MCLHUP06KITL.png VK5QI created some good looking rrd plots as shown in his posts above. Also linkfanel's page with signal-to-noise ratio based scores is useful, but in order to visualize how these SNR values chan…
  • Hi Colin99, Please check your pm for the blacklist i am currently using.
  • Also encountered frequent and relentless connection attempts from Alibaba ip addresses, however in the SE Asia region these traced back to Singapore servers and so I have blocked large swaths of their addresses. Seems whoever is mainly interested in…
  • About changing the SNR measurement details and referring to LA3RK's post about diurnal effects. Is there a place where the administrator can change "utc":0,"ihr":6 ? For longer time monitoring hourly SNR snapshots would be usefu…
  • With almost everything working so well now using Kiwi BBAI, it is easy to forget that so far the project status is still alpha. So fair enough for backup I will just use something along the lines Stu mentioned. Thanks. Ben.
