  • Thanks for the tip on CATsync, that looks like it could be exactly what I am looking for. What I still can't quite grasp is the I/Q pipe between the KiwiSDR and something like SDR#. Is it essentially just an audio feed, i.e. so the waterfall in SD…
  • OK, I was able to get the case assembled. I assume the best orientation during use would be with the Kiwi board on top, for the best heat dissipation. I wasn't able to get the rivets fully pushed in without mangling the thin inner shafts, so I'll …
  • Fantastic! The printed copy that came with mine (v1.2) was not quite as detailed as that. Now I know exactly what I was doing wrong, thanks!
  • For my other SDRs I use SDR# for control and access, and for SSB signals it sure is nice to be able to use the scroll wheel on the mouse to skip up and down in 1 kHz increments. Or 10 kHz when flipping through the AM broadcast band. I'm still so ne…
  • Can't resist adding one more comment to this thread, I am DELIGHTED with my first KiwiSDR....but it took me several YEARS to finally order one, because it is described as a "kit". That is a daunting word to non-kit-builders like myself. …
  • The OnlineComponents web site says they currently have 49 on order, to be shipped next month. And at a great price (that's where I got mine from last month) The catch is, you have to enter their specific part number (110060490) in the search box t…
  • I am definitely beginning to appreciate how misleading the SNR values can be without viewing the spectrum detail. Based on viewing a variety of publicly shared Kiwi's it looks like quite a few of the higher values are situations where the spectrum …
  • Yes, I agree only the S-meter/dBm is usable for true values. The odd formatting on my post with all the numbers made it a bit ambiguous. For each line the first value is the power output from the TinySA, the second value is what the S-meter/dBm di…
  • Glenn, As always, thank you for your patience in explaining the facts about noise levels. For my own curiosity I made some signal level measurements with the KiwiSDR, using a TinySA spectrum analyzer as the source. The TinySA is not a precision so…
  • rrobinet, Thank you for the bandwidth values, exactly what I was curious to know about. So I definitely MUST have the Pi co-located on the LAN. Right now the only Pi I have is in another state, running OpenwebRX with a couple of SDRs. Just for fu…
  • Much appreciate the useful and detailed responses to my original post, and I've added the groups.io for wsprdaemon to my ever expanding list of forums. The only piece of missing information I am still seeking revolves around the network bandwidth us…
  • I did some additional comparisons for WSPR decoding yesterday with the same antenna and audio piped into separate instances of WSJT-x via virtual audio cables. The spot count was consistently higher for the Airspy HF+. Looking at the signal report…
  • JKS, Thank you for the detailed response to my query. I'm still finding my way with this SDR, and yes indeed the 30 MHz bandwidth really shines compared to other SDRs. I am almost relieved to hear that the Airspy HF may be more sensitive than the …
  • Thanks for the rapid replies, I am new to the kiwiSDR so I did not realize the built in decoding for WSPR is not recommended for general use. From what I have read so far it sounds like the wsprdaemon is a separate program running on another Linux …
