lsb mode not working with kiwirecorder

I am trying to record one or more 40 meter LSB stations with the kiwirecorder, but it's not working. I can record the other modes fine, but not lsb. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Here's the script I use. For recmode, anything other than lsb records correctly.


    #!/usr/bin/env bash


    ctrl_c() { kill %%; exit; }

    set -u   # Show usage of unset variables as an error to help catch typos

    #common to all

    kiwirec=~/kiwiclient/kiwirecorder.py

    kiwi_port=8073

    DL=~/Desktop/Jon_tests

    rec1freq=7255

    recmode=lsb

    min=1

    c_min=1

    #------------------------------------


    #-------------------------------------

    kiwi_IP1=mauisdr.wsprdaemon.org

    ID1=rec1


    #-----------------------------------

    echo Armed, ctl-C to quit

    min=$(date +%M)

       c_min=$min

       while [ $c_min -eq $min ] ; do

         sleep 1s

         c_min=$(date +%M)

       done

    trap ctrl_c INT

    for (( ; ; ))

    do

    min=$(date +%M)

    if [ $min -eq 54 ] ;then

      echo Recording, ctl-C to quit

         $kiwirec -s $kiwi_IP1 -p $kiwi_port -f $rec1freq -m $recmode --tlimit=60 -d $DL --station=$ID1

     fi


    echo ""


    c_min=$min

       while [ $c_min -eq $min ] ; do

         sleep 1s

         c_min=$(date +%M)

       done


    done


  • Worked fine when I tried it. Make sure you have the most recent version installed. Add to the command options --log-level=debug and make sure an lsb passband is being sent to the Kiwi. In the log output below this is the low_cut=-2700 high_cut=-300 part in addition to mod=lsb
