Where is the logging text file for WSPR ?
I would like to make a program to display my received stations with pins on a map with text for the station.


  • Man.... I shire like this KiwiSdr Receiver, It's the best !
  • If enabled on the admin page ("extensions" tab, WSPR menu), the WSPR log messages are logged to the Linux syslog. This means they end up in the usual place:
    > ls -la /var/log/user*
    -rw-r----- 1 root adm  15K Feb 11 18:37 /var/log/user.log
    -rw-r----- 1 root adm  40K Feb  9 02:06 /var/log/user.log.1
    -rw-r----- 1 root adm  11K Feb  3 02:06 /var/log/user.log.2.gz
    -rw-r----- 1 root adm 5.8K Jan 26 06:23 /var/log/user.log.3.gz
    -rw-r----- 1 root adm  15K Jan 19 21:12 /var/log/user.log.4.gz
    To keep the size of the log files under control the last three are compressed (.gz filename extension). An easy way to understand how to view them is to see how the log-viewing Makefile targets in the Kiwi server Makefile work:
    > cdp
    > make -n slog
    cat /var/log/user.log | grep kiwid        (views only recent Kiwi log messages)
    > make -n log
    zcat /var/log/user.log.4.gz > /tmp/kiwi.log; zcat /var/log/user.log.3.gz >> /tmp/kiwi.log; zcat /var/log/user.log.2.gz >> /tmp/kiwi.log; cat /var/log/user.log.1 >> /tmp/kiwi.log; cat /var/log/user.log >> /tmp/kiwi.log; cat /tmp/kiwi.log | grep kiwid
