sdr.hu is now REALLY closed for non-amateurs
Or so it seems, as I am now longer able to log into the account I have. It appears that someone (Retzler?) has an idea that only amateurs should be allowed to operate web receivers. Nothing wrong with amateurs, but the attitude behind the descision is flawed. It is prejudiced and discriminating. I am strongly tempted to remove my two Kiwis from sdr.hu, since the resource obviously doesn't want me there. And to be fair, right now I am deeply unmotivated to the whole idea of websdr, including my own.
looks to me that there is a technical issue.... i now get error 404 when i click on login (and im a licensed amateur) ...
Ok forget that, there seems to have been change on the website and I didnt refresh ...
Only need to authenticate (with all the hackers going around maybe not a bad idea to start with) ...
I don't like this decision and won't sign up.
We at KiwiSDR are happy Andr?s allows us to use his work and that he continues to be a Kiwi profit-sharing partner since our startup in 2016.
Sure it's annoying and disappointing for some, but it's Andr?s's website and his decision, so I don't have a problem with it.
There are other alternatives and some of these are actually better, but they just need more publicity, which was perhaps difficult whilst Andr?s's was seen to be the main 'official' focal point for OpenWebRX based SDR's.
Change always brings about new opportunities :-)

The program allows you to select any of the available Kiwi receivers on a map interface GUI and get the streaming audio signal, with a mouse click you can obtain the current SNR estimate as used to be available on Marco's IS0KYB website using his micro -kiwi-waterfall routine and it shows the not so frequently updated SNR measurements from rxfanel page.
I have been using this for quite some time to find the better performing Kiwi's bypassing the obviously manipulated voting method that occurred at sdr.hu
In the past, I had my own lists of WebSDRs and Kiwis which were independent of any opt-in lists.
If you haven't managed to make a backup of sdr.hu, as probably most people, then use https://web.archive.org/ mark the date before closing the project and it's ready, I checked it works.
There is also the https://www.receiverbook.de/ project which is actually a continuation of OpenWebRX and there you can add your receivers
