Possible bug with public facing GUI [fixed in v1.523]
I do not operate a kiwi but I am a frequent user and I've notice some odd behavior with the user GUI. I thought I'd offer the info to the forum here and let the developers run the issue down.
On my iPhone (IOS 15.4.1) and on my laptop's (Win7) Chrome & Firefox browsers I've been seeing the same issue: After going to the main KFS quad kiwi page at....
....I have experienced the following:
Selecting any of the four kiwis brings up a page that has a blank frequency box and even though I type in a frequency and hit return nothing happens. On Chrome and on IOS it reloads to display the "Play" arrow icon in the middle of the screen. The screen also does not populate my ID in the name/callsign box as it used to, probably based on a cookie.
The problem seems to come and go. The ham radio page at http://websdr1.kfsdr.com:8901/ seems to always function normally for me.
I don't want to send more emails to the KFS crew unless I can provide something useful.
Another user on a forum I frequent said this:
"I can confirm this happening to me on Firefox for Windows 99.0.1, Windows 10.
I noticed this morning that if I closed that browser tab and open it again a few minutes later (I went to get a coffee), it opened with 10 MHz WWV in use (as usual) and that may have been because someone in Switzerland had swooped in and grabbed the RX0 position. I don't know if that Swiss user had to do some extra gymnastics to get it to go to 10 MHz or not.
I don't use KFS that often (because it is quite popular) but by chance I used it last night (the first time in probably at least a month) and I noticed something similar. (I accessed the Omni from a saved bookmark, not from the "top level" menu you posted) and the first thing that I noticed is that the frequency input was not responding to changes. I ended up going somewhere else.
I have noticed similar weird behavior on certain Kiwis lately. (E.g., not responding to frequency changes.) It's random and not 100% repeatable. I have not made notes about which ones and when."
Short discussion is here: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php?topic=96723.msg306943;boardseen#new
I also notice that if I get the blank frequency box I can just keep hitting refresh until I see the box properly populated.
Thanks to all of the kiwi operators out there. I hope this information is of some use to discovering the root cause.
