Is there any gain control?

Having received and setup my kiwisdr I would like to know If there is any gain control on the kiwisdr or within the software settings? Apart from setting up the waterfall the instructions in the quick start guide are minimal :(




  • Hi Neil,

    If you press the "more" button on the lower right control panel you'll see various AGC parameters that can be adjusted. Changing the Threshold and Slope will effect the gain. There is also a Manual Gain slider that becomes active if you turn the AGC off.

    There is the volume control of course. There is no hardware gain control in the RF front-end. This was a cost tradeoff.
