The KiwiSDR 2 online store is open for orders! Please visit
Today's v1.694 update is hopefully a working version of the failed v1.691,692 release of a few days ago.
See the first post of the "v1.694" thread below for the CHANGE_LOG notes.

Saving current config via browser

Context: I'm connecting to a kiwi via a Pi 3B with a USB sound card attached. I am piping the audio out, to the audio in, and using QRSSPiG to demodulate the QRSS pictograms.

Status: This is all working ok.

Question: I am trying to capture the fussy level of settings needed for the demodulation to happen successfully. These include manual AF gain , manual RF gain and probably other things I haven't yet discovered

While I see that cookies store all the things I know I need so far (the above) I'd like to capture that in a URL and store a bookmark so that I can immediately return to the needed configuration. I know I can set AF gain (&vol=xxx) but I don't see manual/AGC settings in the example? Can I do this, and if so what is the syntax ? I don't see AGC/RF gain listed in the list of arguments you can pass via the URL.

Thanks for any help.



  • since you're already using linux in the RPi, you might consider using the kiwiclient tools rather than a browser., for example, give these options

    Usage: [options]


     -h, --help      show this help message and exit

     --log=LOG_LEVEL, --log-level=LOG_LEVEL, --log_level=LOG_LEVEL

                Log level: debug|info|warn(default)|error|critical

     --progress      Print progress messages instead of output of binary


     -k SOCKET_TIMEOUT, --socket-timeout=SOCKET_TIMEOUT, --socket_timeout=SOCKET_TIMEOUT

                Timeout(sec) for sockets

     -s SERVER_HOST, --server-host=SERVER_HOST

                Server host (can be a comma-delimited list)

     -p SERVER_PORT, --server-port=SERVER_PORT

                Server port, default 8073 (can be a comma delimited


     --pw=PASSWORD, --password=PASSWORD

                Kiwi login password (if required, can be a comma

                delimited list)

     --tlimit-pw=TLIMIT_PASSWORD, --tlimit-password=TLIMIT_PASSWORD

                Connect time limit exemption password (if required,

                can be a comma-separated list)

     -u USER, --user=USER Kiwi connection user name

     --launch-delay=LAUNCH_DELAY, --launch_delay=LAUNCH_DELAY

                Delay (secs) in launching multiple connections


                Frequency to tune to, in kHz (can be a comma-separated

                list). For sideband modes (lsb/lsn/usb/usn/cw/cwn)

                this is the carrier frequency. See --pbc option below.

     --pbc, --freq-pbc   For sideband modes (lsb/lsn/usb/usn/cw/cwn) interpret

                -f/--freq frequency as the passband center frequency.

     -m MODULATION, --modulation=MODULATION

                Modulation; one of am/amn, sam/sau/sal/sas/qam,

                lsb/lsn, usb/usn, cw/cwn, nbfm, iq (default passband

                if -L/-H not specified)

     --ncomp, --no_compression

                Don't use audio compression (IQ mode never uses


     -L LP_CUT, --lp-cutoff=LP_CUT

                Low-pass cutoff frequency, in Hz

     -H HP_CUT, --hp-cutoff=HP_CUT

                Low-pass cutoff frequency, in Hz

     --tlimit=TLIMIT, --time-limit=TLIMIT

                Record time limit in seconds

     -T THRESH, --squelch-threshold=THRESH

                Squelch threshold, in dB.


                Time for which the squelch remains open after the

                signal is below threshold.

     -g AGC_GAIN, --agc-gain=AGC_GAIN

                AGC gain; if set, AGC is turned off (can be a comma-

                separated list)


                AGC decay (msec); if set, AGC is turned on


                AGC options provided in a YAML-formatted file

     --de-emp       Enable de-emphasis.

     --wf, --waterfall   Process waterfall data instead of audio

  • Hmmm. Something else I don't know how to do, but seems interesting. I'll do some searching on the forum to see how one uses kiwiclient. Being a Linux noob, everything is challenging, but the good news is I don't know what I don't know. :-)
