Kiwi: Mk II? [answer: no]
edited May 2019 in KiwiSDR Discussion
I'm thinking about buying a second kiwi. Is currently any development for a successor of the kiwi hardware in progress?

- More receiver slots
Nice to have:
- >=16-Bit ADC
- More FFT bins for the spectrum display (1 per pixel)
- Faster CPU
- Integrated WiFi (or a USB port for a WiFi-Adapter, but USB tends to generate noise)
Let's just stop this discussion right here. It doesn't go anywhere and I have much more important things to be doing with my time.
Honestly, I spend more time on the kiwi than on the $4000 transceiver.
BTW, I've paid $360 for my first kiwi. If it had double the amount of receiver slots, it would be worth $720 alone, and I'd still save money on splitters etc.
I'm very pleased with the current situation and interest and don't think I'm going to run out of things to try and applications for any one of my several kiwis. I've thought about changes and additions I might desire, I've even made some add-on pieces such as the Antenna Switch and I may be developing some new ones, but I like the whole package and environment as it is and I hope it can continue to thrive. It's quite all right with me if someone else's opinion is different. I'm glad to hear those as well.
