  • So you have your own custom backend script derived from the snaptekk switch script? It looks like the integrated snaptekk script has a typo. So check if this typo carried over to your script or not:     echo "SNAPTEKK_URL=\"$url\"&quo…
  • @DF3LZ Roland, if you can open the ssh port (22) through your router so I can connect to your Kiwi-1 Beagle/Linux then I can probably fix it. Happy to do that. But it requires that you connect to your router and create a port 22 mapping from the In…
  • So this was a very interesting and important problem that is now understood (and fixed in the next release). I did not realize this, but the curl timing defaults used by the git command cause a timeout failure if you have a slow Internet connection.…
  • Orders through and including #1455 were shipped (assigned tracking at least) on Thu April 18 (Wed April 17 in Europe/NA). We're spending a few days now shipping units to distributors. Back to shipping customer units early next week. Compared to the …
  • I can't follow this conversation. Too much missing and conflicting information. And I'm drowning in other more important problems. This is what you must do before we even talk about sending it back: Take the short SMA-M to SMA-M cable that came with…
    in Dead Kiwi 2 ? Comment by jks April 20
  • Okay, fixed. Will be in the next release. Thanks guys.
  • Which antenna switch backend? GPIO?
  • Trying to upload photos to the forum that are too large will give error 400. To check the Kiwi frontend use the self-test cable that was supplied with the unit and follow the procedure here: http://kiwisdr.com/quickstart/index.html#id-self-test
  • Hey, thanks for the bug report. I'll make sure that gets fixed. Unfortunately I had to rewrite a lot of the code that depended on the extension framework. And this has led to all sort of problems.
  • We have shipped hundreds now to ML&S (UK) hamradio.co.uk and WiMo (DE) wimo.com. So consider ordering from them. Check if they will ship to your region and the cost.
  • I would have to add an admin setting to change the frequency step size. Right now there are multiple defaults used that are band and mode dependent. Auto repeat when holding down the step buttons is a possibility. I fairly recently added a general &…
  • Those "Xnn UNKNOWN" are very old debugging messages (from v1.484) that were in the GPS code. Is this Kiwi accessible from the Internet? If so, could you email the admin password to support@kiwisdr.com please (set a temporary password if yo…
  • Aw hell, typo. Sorry. Instead of: cp unix_env/kiwi.config/dist.kiwi.json ../kiwi.config Try the above commands with: cp unix_env/kiwi.config/dist.kiwi.json ../kiwi.config/kiwi.json
  • No, you don't run /usr/local/bin/kiwid -use_spidev 1 -bg -v 1.671 yourself. That's bad. That string describes the output from the ps command that you're looking for (which I don't see). So try this please: cdp mst cp unix_env/kiwi.config/dist.kiwi.j…
  • Ugh. So either your configuration was trashed, or you just trashed it by running the server in an unapproved way. Try: cdp mst cp unix_env/kiwi.config/dist.kiwi.json ../kiwi.config msa Then wait maybe 30 seconds and see if it comes up.
  • How long did you wait after the ku finished? Try again after one minute. Also, do a ps lax | gr kiwid and see if the following is contained in the ps output: /usr/local/bin/kiwid -use_spidev 1 -bg -v 1.671
  • I hadn't looked at the rx.linkfanel.net/snr site in a long time until now. I didn't realize he shows "internal and "external" values. I agree that the "internal" ones look like the ones from the Kiwi /snr URL.
  • There are some further security restrictions you can place on access to the admin interface: http://kiwisdr.com/quickstart/index.html#id-opt-dot
  • Okay. Your git clone is trashed. Need a different procedure. I should probably write a script for this. But try this sequence of commands please: cd rm -rf Beagle_SDR_GPS gclone Beagle_SDR_GPS cdp m (will take a while) mi ku
  • I'm having to repeat myself yet again: The Kiwi's SNR measurement code ignores masked band segments. They do not skew the result. rx.linkfanel.net connects to each Kiwi and does his own SNR measurement using an algorithm I don't know anything about.…
  • Try ./up Also, what does ls -la up tell you? And cat up
  • A couple of things: Remember that if the message seen in the admin "log" tab doesn't contain an "L" before the message it is not being recorded in the Linux/Debian syslog (the one that takes up filesystem space). Those messages a…
  • Okay, well that's a good thing. But once again iOS has gotten away from me and I need to spend some time catching up. I really need to be automatically detecting all iPads and doing the equivalent of the /?m in my code somehow. So many other things …
  • What do you mean exactly? Adding gain as in a preamp? That won't change the measured SNR because the noise floor will rise to offset the increased signal strengths (i.e. no free lunch).
  • Does anyone have an ms-s4a-web (not s5a) hooked up to their Kiwi that I could connect to and do some experiments? The s5a script is taking almost 10 seconds to a simple antenna switch and I'd like to know if the s4a behaves the same. Thank you. Emai…
  • Well, especially since you worked so hard for it (antenna and frontend optimizations, and all the knowledge you've shared on the forum).
  • My impression is the rx.linkfanel guy doesn't read this forum..
  • I didn't write any of the backend scripts. And how the "ms" script works still doesn't make sense to me. So the switch is now selecting the correct antenna. But the new antenna switch interface isn't showing it correctly. So something else…
  • Oh, ha ha, I know what's wrong. The command structure for these switches requires sequential commands to step to the desired antenna (a result of the web-based interface having a simple "up/down" button interface). But this means the backe…
