  • Hey Phil and Pekka! Sorry that I didn't come here recently and I saw your messages only now. Too much work lately and no time to play with radio and python. Hope you have fun! :-) Phil, your fork has nice features indeed. One thing I always wanted t…
  • Hi, long time no see. If anybody's still interested in the Windows version of SuperSDR, you may now download it from github: https://github.com/mcogoni/supersdr/releases/tag/v3.14 As usual, please let me know what works and what doesn't ;-) 73! mar…
  • I think they are, but please, don't let me touch anything Windows-related, I'm heavily allergic.
  • Hi Pekka, no there is no updated Windows executable. Don't expect anything for at least one month. marco
  • Thanks Wolfgang, I'll visit that website, seems interesting. 73! marco
  • Hi, if you have a strong broadcasting station nearby you may have the SNR value you like. If you have local non-wideband QRN, you'll have high SNR. If you receive one single decent station on the entire HF bands but you have low noise because your a…
  • Hi, I wrote that script, but it's never been updated and I don't even remember what it did... I'm just sure that it was written BADLY. Please avoid it, use it just for "inspiration" :-) marco
  • Hi All, regarding CAT control via Hamlib: I found out that on some computers I have got here, with the last Hamlib version (4.4-1 for Arch/Manjaro), SuperSDR becomes very slow to update the frequency when tuning on the radio. Reverting back to 3.3 f…
  • Ah, 9600 baud! That's likely why I've never seen any problem working at 115kbps... I could put in a new command line param to change the timeout for old and slow rigs.
  • Hi Ben, thanks for the report! It's cool that an old radio like the IC-725 can do CAT. I think that the problem is on the Hamlib side. I had similar problems when trying to catch the TX/RX switch on my TS-590SG: the rigctld would sometimes disconnec…
  • OK, but what does a bot do exactly? I activated the blacklist only very recently and never had any suspicious activity despite checking and using the kiwi A LOT.
  • Am I the only one that has never experienced one of these infamous bots? I wonder what could a bot do to disrupt the normal behavior of the kiwi even in IQ mode. Of course IQ uses more processing power and more bandwidth, but from the web interface …
  • Those spurious emissions have a spectral density of about -70dBc (with respect to the carrier). It would be great if amateur emissions were this clean. Especially since amateur power levels are reaching the same order of magnitude nowadays. What a s…
  • Would this bold font be OK? I cannot change font size (for now) because some things are not parametric. On my display legibility seems quite good now. https://forum.kiwisdr.com/uploads/510/794YAY8GEONG.png
  • Hi @Gibsonmb, I'll have to force my Windows friend to work a bit more :-) I'll try to do something about the fonts, maybe through a command line option. marco
  • OK Vojtech, thanks for the report. Unfortunately I've never seen a Chromebook live. I have no idea what differences there are between a normal Linux distro and that as regards the audio subsystem. If there are glitches what happens when you increase…
  • OK Vojtech, that Kiwi is marked as "private". I just updated the code to connect to private kiwis. I thought that it was safe not to access them, I don't know what that means... I'll push the changes in a few minutes to the dev branch, ple…
  • PS to the previous message: the default buffer size is 10 chunks (the duration in s depends on the kiwi bandwidth 12 or 20 kHz but it's roughly 0.5s I think), this normally works ok for fast remote kiwis, if you have a local kiwi you can go down to …
  • Hi, there was a bug in the audiobuffer behavior afflicting especially pulseaudio/ALSA users. I uploaded a new version to git (both dev and main have the new code). The changelog is this: https://forum.kiwisdr.com/uploads/230/AXXSEUCTEUPF.png There i…
  • Wow, KA9Q! It was since I was 14 and I was doing packet radio on HF and VHF that I didn't see that call ;-) I like the idea for this AGC algorithm. I'll try to implement it on SuperSDR when I've got some spare time. Some time ago I used a similar me…
  • Hi Don, thanks for the feedback. If Windows doesn't find your kiwisdr.local just create a batch file using the command line option to directly connect to the server IP. Something like supersdr.exe -S 192.168.1.82 -P 8073 -w yourpassword but you can…
  • https://forum.kiwisdr.com/index.php?p=/discussion/comment/13869#Comment_13869 Vojtech, the program is pure Python, where did you find a main.c? :-D Just run: supersdr.py --help and you'll see all possible runtime options. Thanks Jim for the help ;)
  • Hi Vojtech, as John wrote above, I do exactly as the standard web UI, but you can reduce the latency a lot by using the runtime option -b 1 if the kiwi you're connecting to has a fast internet connection or is in your local network. I can use Kiwis …
  • Today I fixed a desync problem that arised when the network stutters, leading to a waterfall ahead of the audio. In the worst cases it meant a several seconds delay. Then I stopped using the default Monospaced font (that depends on what you have ins…
  • Hi Martin, thanks for the comments. You can run supersdr in fullscreen mode now, it's a bit experimental and you should enable it via command line. You have to use the option -l 1680 if you want a window 1680 pixel wide. If you have a full hd monito…
  • Excellent! Thank you for the report!
  • OK, just uploaded the Windows executable: https://github.com/mcogoni/supersdr/releases/download/v3.12/WinSuperSDR_v3.12.zip Please test it throughly because I cannot use it.
  • I just uploaded a new release v3.12, for those not using git and following the development process. https://github.com/mcogoni/supersdr/releases/tag/v3.12 Hope to upload the windows version later this evening. I have still to update the Help text to…
  • No Jukka, sorry, but I really don't want to support niche devices. I develop supersdr just because I use it a lot myself and for my kind of operation is better than John's original general purpose interface. I find very efficient to use the keyboard…
  • OK, now there is the freq_offset in the status page, thanks again.
