I have no idea how many KIWISDRs (ver. 2016 by jks) have been released since 2016.
The purpose of this post is to call a collection from all over the world.
Leave your KIWISDR's photo and link URL here please
The picture includes a linear power supply, a pre-BPF, kiwisdR+Aluminum enclosure, and wifi hub. The fan was intendedly moved to the outside to reduce vibration.
jimlill.com:8073 and jimlill.com:8075 are 2 of the 4 kiwisdr there. The other 2 are dedicated to wspr. I am currently suffering from some local noise that I haven't had time to chase.
very good idea.
Récepteur KiwiSDR de Trémolat, AutreRadioAutreCulture (Périgord, Dordogne, France).
Antenna mini-whip Dual Fet, stainless steel antenna mast 50 mm in diameter at 3.5 m in height, 50 meters of silver RG 58 coaxial cable.
52 meters from the antenna, the receiver box is placed in a technical bay (19", 27U); Schneider case in steel, not aluminum, it's important. TP Link ethernet switch (there are several other switches before reaching the Internet router, the network is large).
Interior of the armored box. Bel 784-HAA 512-AG linear power supply, 5 Volts and 12-15 Volts. Mains filter (RFI TE Connectivity 3A-250V). 12V injector (double coil) for the active antenna. The ventilation grilles are behind the power supply (cannot be seen in the photo).
Shielded, grounded cover.
Behind the rack, the surge protector and the arrival of the earth connections at a central point.
Best regard, Philippe
My provisional (solar-powered) experimental setup on a wooden board:
As said, this was intended as a provisional test setup only, but is now already running for many years. Nothing is as durable as a temporary solution. ;-)
No URL here, as this kiwi is still not publicly available.
Nothing fancy, just a shelf in my workshop/radio room.
All four KiwiSDRs go into a Mini-Circuits 6 port multicoupler attached to an 80-10m OCF dipole at 65 ft. Signal levels are high enough here that the attenuation from the multicoupler helps with overload from SW stations like R. Marti at night. (yes, the coax cables have stress relief just out of frame 😁) The power supply is an open chassis Lambda 12v/5v supply. The GPS pucks go out the window to a metal plate over the window.
I also run Black Cat Systems KiwiSDR Monitor software to view users and other stats of all four receivers in a single view: https://www.blackcatsystems.com/software/kiwiSDR-Monitor.html

Here's one of mine that I'd dare to show you.
This is laid out on a sheet of MDF so that it can be wall mounted.
It's always best to start off with good intentions, as it soon gets messy...
a photo of my passive antenna for kiwi, it's a 1.7m long passive mini-whip, model no. is apexradio 303WA-2 and it offered an awesome reception for medium and short wave every night. Which special here is, this antenna has to connect to a long enough coaxial (about 10~18m) to obtain the highest S/N ratio.
Home shack in Norway with the KiwiSDR (http://la6lukiwisdrno.ddns.net:8073 plus other net based radio related things) mounted on a wall plate. Antenna for the KiwiSDR here is a vertical NTi MegaDipol.
Secondary home in Thailand with the KiwiSDR (http://la6lukiwisdrth.ddns.net:8073 Antenna for the KiwiSDR here is a NTi MA305FT.
