  • KiwiSDR unable to login with SDR.HU [caused by new Comcast/Xfinity "advanced security" feature]

    From the two seconds connection I managed looks like a nice view, super quiet location.
    That to me, feels like a firewall somewhere (ISP?)
    I connected from one PC then remembered I'd have audio issues there so connected from another very quickly. got a few seconds then timeout.
    "Feels like Firewall" because I made two fast incoming connections and then it would not talk to either browser again for a few minutes then got another couple of seconds connection.

    Ping seems pretty stable so doesn't look like loading / network breaks
    50 packets transmitted, 50 received, 0% packet loss, time 108ms
    rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 181.104/185.854/190.107/2.152 ms

    I'd see if your ISP offers security as part of it's standard network features and, if it does, see if you can allow a service or lower the general level - with obvious caveats for don't lower your ISP security unless you have a good local router/firewall.

    As for cooped up at home, with that view! Pah.

  • Port forwarding issue?

    That, by the look of it, is IPv6. Your DUC is for IPv4.
    Assuming the public side still gets an IPv4 address you should have other settings for that.
    If you go up one menu is there not a "firewall" option, that is the description of where to set it from portforward.com (https://portforward.com/bt/smart-hub-2/

    -- after a bit of search--
    It might pay to disable/uninstall the DUC on the PC and try the one in the BT hub.
    Beware, from a quick web search it seems the password can't be too complicated as "some characters" may stop it working.
    That way, assuming the BT hub works properly, the Dynamic address should reflect what they consider your WAN address and it may even detect changes more quickly than a station/client behind the router.

  • New Antenna on jimlill.com:8075

    Showing in the daily WSPR results now, excellent!

    I did have a look when you first posted but as it was a quiet part of the RF day and I could not recall the previous spectrum it was hard to comment.
    WSPR results are great for feedback on antennas and location, if not for WSPR my radios would probably be in a box marked "try again with new neighbours".

  • Kiwi BBAI software Alpha test instructions [updated 3-Jun-21]

    Project needs a "Thermal Cape"
    I've ordered some bits as my scrap box only has a couple of heat pipes and both need a lot of work, would get round the space issue though.
    This is just waiting for some themally conductive double sided tape plus a pad for the PMIC and a bit more inspiration on physically retaining at the network end.
