  • Yeah, there's something up with that. I'll look at it.
  • From Twitter just now. Accuracy uncertain. But in combination with map.kiwisdr.com might make searching for active stations slightly easier. https://twitter.com/radiomatt1/status/1525233360431419394 https://forum.kiwisdr.com/uploads/454/K1LXYWYF8KA8…

  • You have to remember that GPS signals are the weakest signals you will ever receive. They are way under the noise floor and only recoverable due to the direct sequence spread spectrum processing gain used. It doesn't help that the puck antenna is pr…
  • * Does it do a calibration based on GPS data on the fly? Yes. * Does it require a reboot to act on the GPS data? No. * How often does it calibrate itself? Every single GPS solution, which is every 2-4 seconds (I can't remember). There is a 16-period…
  • @rrobinet Okay, v1.523 should fix the page load problem at KFS. Also, I added a reliability improvement to the admin server close code. I don't know if it will make any difference, but it might. @teotwaki The decimal point in the 10-digit keypad f…
  • @rrobinet Okay, this all makes sense now. If that microwave link is inducing differential delay between the HTML load of openwebrx.js and the sound connection web socket then this issue will occur. It could easily do that because of limitations in …
  • Also, while zoomed in on strong AM signals like that (a single one or several) bring up the waterfall extension and change the FFT window function. You should see a significant change in the FFT spectral leakage outside of the signal passband. Googl…
  • Okay, problem understood. It's a race condition in the code. For some reason the network/timing conditions at KFS are slightly different and the race is frequently triggered. I was able to reproduce it by introducing some artificial timing delays. A…
  • Update: Yeah, it's something about timing. While trying a bunch of times with Firefox, and flushing the cache each time, I got it to load exactly once.
  • On iOS the 10-digit keypad should show the word done at top right you can touch to submit the entry. I get this on my iPhone 6S running iOS 15. If you don't see this I'd like to know what iOS version you're running and a screenshot of what you're se…
  • I'd like to thank @Rene in another thread for the suggestion about defaults, which I found to be a good one. And also RipperFox on Github for suggesting something I forgot to mention above: When you select the noise blanker wdsp or LMS, and you hadn…
  • Just restart and let them update to v1.522..

  • Seoul is new. But the other two are already on the list. Please check first and don't send me on a wild goose chase. Trust me, I don't have the time.

  • I have added the most recently reported IPs into the downloadable blacklist.

  • Works fine here. Although this exact problems has occurred on Safari mobile off and on over the last 6 years. Seems to be some sort of browser rendering bug related to the OpenWebRX waterfall scrolling scheme.
  • Yeah, it's a bug. I fixed it, but I'm not going to do another release just for this. I just sent one out an hour ago. Go to the admin page, update tab, and click "Build now" and you'll get the fix after a rebuild.
  • v1.520 May 7, 2022   Added name/callsign entry field to end of "Users" tab on main control panel. Benefits mobile   devices where the same field on the top bar could never be seen due to a small screen.   Restore C-QUAM left/right channel…
  • No worries. It makes more sense that it wasn't wrong to begin with. I'll undo the change.

  • Also, it looks like they've modified the Kiwi index.html file directly to get their custom top banner. That's probably why they don't have auto updates turned on. Because an update would wipe out that change. A custom banner can be done with the adm…
  • Doesn't make any difference for me with FIrefox. Still always get popup bar (goes away as soon as you start typing digits). It did change Chrome. Previously Chrome would not do a "select all" when tapping once in the frequency field. Now i…
  • "Spec" button on lower right control panel, or keyboard "s" shortcut key. Both of those toggle if pressed multiple times. Press "h" or "?" for a list of all shortcuts.
  • Wow, there's something really strange about all 4 of those Kiwis. They're all running v1.509 which is a little old but should be okay. If you look at the javascript console (from the browser) on page load it thinks the variable "cfg.passbands&q…
  • No. The SNR measurement made by the Kiwi itself (enabled on the admin "control" tab and listed in the "log" tab messages) is purely a local thing. It is not logged by any public website I know of. You can access the data from you…
  • It seems I was in too much of a hurry (as usual) reading that website. For "decimal" is plainly says: On the flip side, this has no effect on Android, which will simply use the numeric keyboard.So I'll change it to conditionally use decima…
  • Yeah, I was too 9 years ago. Zero at: FPGA, Verilog, HTML, SDR, GPS, PCB layout, DFM, fund raising, contract manufacturing, everything! That's why the Kiwi will always be a little "rough" around the edges, lol
  • @WA2ZKD I wondered that too, since I think of the "3-horizontal-bar" icon looks like a user interface menu list. But others decided it reminded them of a stacked "hamburger", lol.
  • I read the css-tricks site about inputmode (https://css-tricks.com/everything-you-ever-wanted-to-know-about-inputmode/) and decided "decimal" was more appropriate then "tel".
  • I'm not sure what SNR lists you're talking about. Remember, I don't run any of them. I don't know how they work or how to change them. You have to ask their authors, not me.
  • @W1RC You might want to do a manual frequency calibration. Instructions are on the admin page, bottom of the "config" tab. You might want to do this if you find the ADC XO is far enough off-frequency, due to room temperature, its intrinsi…
