My KiwiSDR has Died [power supply problem]
I just had the unfortunate experience in finding my KiwiSDR had died today.
I believe that it might of had too much rf get into it while I was tuning my new amp, which went into a dummy load, in the shack. I do have a DXE RG500HD, Receiver Guard on the antenna line.
I have checked and found that I am not getting any power to the unit, the power supply is suppling 5v, but on the rear of the jack it is only reading 2.5v, so something is sinking the voltage.
If I remove the daughter board and plug in a usb plug can get the beagle to boot up. (I plugged a network cable in, but cannot see it from my local web browser).
I am after some suggestions on what to look at first, or what actions I need to follow? If I need to get another KiwiSDR, this might be down the track a bit.
Thanks for any advice/help
