Add GPSd

Can you add GPSd since The Kiwisdr has GPS?

I could use this for other programs on my Local Network (Intranet).

Some Info.....

gpsd is a computer software program that collects data from a Global Positioning System receiver and provides

the data via an Internet Protocol network to potentially multiple client applications in a server-client application

    that's not a trivial addition, even to a standalone BB. I have implemented that on RPi to have my own Stratum 1 ntpd here but I used a normal GPS module. The Kiwi, IIRC uses an different kind of GPS.

  • It would be a great tool if Kiwi could act as a local NTP server

  • How close does an off-Internet BB/Kiwi become if one checks "Set date from GPS" on the admin page? I think I've proven that this is fine for synching WSPR spots when portable but I don't think I've ever checked to see how accurate it actually is.

    It may not be ntpd class but it certainly is good enough to get a BB close enough for aligning the digital modes of K1JT, isn't it?

    I'm not sure where to find the kiwi's internal time, only the BB's and I'm not sure they are the same.
