  • @Cheeto_Bandito ; Mike N8OOU here. I use Starlink as my ISP provider. I also have a Kiwi connected to that provider. It was not simple, easy, or cheap to get that combination working. It also helps a bunch, if the installer has knowledge and experie…
  • @jks I did the Kiwisdr server restart as requested and yes, that did indeed update the /admin/network IP addresses. I also accessed the my.kiwisdr.com page and got back the normal page for "KiwiSDRs found on your local network". I have no…
  • tustinfarm I switched my ISP to Starlink which also uses the CG-NAT model. My Kiwi and web server lost public internet access as the result. I set Tailscale up on a Linux Mint machine connected to Starlink to learn more. I followed their instruc…
  • JKS Well DRAT!!! I must admit my mistake of not updating my test script to point to the version I installed on 10/15. I was still executing the 10/10 version on all the tests I run on Sunday and Monday, I corrected the script, and in the couple tes…
  • JKS Again, thank you for taking your time and spending some of it on KiwiClient/Recorder (KCR") I grabbed the new version from github, and reinstalled following the steps in the readme.me file. Problem 1. I run Linux Mint 20.3 which when I…
  • Ken, I'll try a shot at a simple explanation. Kiwirecorder is a component of the larger Kiwiclient package. I use the terms component and package loosely to help convey a mental image here. You download the Kiwiclient package from github. (Search …
  • JKS, I have an update which is good news, but maybe bad news. I did a power cycle on the Kiwi, and I am writing 6000 sps again. The bad side of that is what ever caused the problem likely went into the bit bucket. A few more runs continued making…
  • JKS, Yes, I follow the threads fairly closely, and I did follow that one. I just checked the Kiwi and I currently am tracking 11, good 7, and have 365.7k fixes. My GPS antenna is blocked to the South a little, but these are the kind of numbers th…
  • WA2ZKD Sox and several other external applications were discussed back in 2019. Yes I agree, Sox is an option. The -r option was added to Kiwirecorder back then. That provided a simple, no extra step process. My point is for the last 4 years Kiwire…
  • JKS, Thank you for the explanation. I stopped the wspr autorun I had set up even though the KIWI had updated to v1.600. The backup completed successfully. Mike N8OOU.
  • What condition is an sd card in, that was made with the Debian 8 / Kiwisdr backup command? Can it be restored and the KIwi caught up from there. I tried to make a backup tonight and at 25% complete got the disconnect error. My last backup was 1.562…
  • So how did this end up? Have you guys got it working yet? I have Starlink too and would make my Kiwi public if I could get it working on Starlink. I could use some guidance or how to? Thanks Mike
  • I used the wspr extension on my kiwi last night on 22m and it decoded and uploaded to wspernet.org as expected. Today I configured the kiwi to autorun wspr, and I see in the log that I am decoding on 22m, but not uploading to wsprnet.org. N8OOU is …
  • I have conducted similar tests using my KiwiSdr with the supplied GPS puck. I came up with a method using Argo, when I participated in the ARRL FMT a couple years ago. I got good results and a high ranking in the test. The audio wave files could be …
  • Yes, It works as described. Mike.
  • Upon further investigation I find the following. I made a kiwi sdcard backup on Feb 7,2022. The dx.json file on that backup was dated Nov,2021. I performed a "diff" between it and the current dx.json file and found that the Nov, 2021 vers…
  • dl7awl, OK, good suggestions that I didn't do before writing. So I first tried using the Chromium browser with out any changes to the Kiwi. I went back to Firefox and did the clear's. I even deleted the Dx Label, set the kiwi back to the Frequency…
  • On my Kiwi, I have the admin/config daily restart set to "no". After reading the last post I looked closer at the time displayed on the main page and saw that it was still set to CDT, and an hour off. I did a KiwiSDR Server Restart which …
  • JKS,All This thread is super informative and helpful. I hope you will organize the graphics and supportive text here and add this to the official documentation stack for the Kiwi. While I have a fairly good update rate on my Kiwi, I now understand…
  • I have the WSPR extension autostart on the LF band. I use N8OOU as my reporter callsign. I have on occasion autostarted a second instance on MF using the same callsign. That configuration has worked well for me. Mike N8OOU
  • John, Thank you very much. I have downloaded and completed a few tests with the revised client code. So far the code has performed as documented. I am working to refine my script and when I think it is good to go, I will post why and how I am usi…
  • ANgazu Thanks for the link to R8brain. I called the page up and it looks like it would be a solution too. Mike N8OOU
  • John; Christoph; To answer Christoph, yes I am linux only here, with one exception for the US Tax prep program. Following your suggestion I find sox is installed as part of the Slackware distribution. It is a program I didn't know about, and in th…
  • John, Thanks a bunch for the quick reply and additional info. I am looking at the directKiwi code, but after reading the blog, I know this is way over my DSP knowledge level. I was thinking I could just find a constant with a value of 12001 and cha…
  • This morning my kiwi returned the firefox "unable to connect" page. Before reading this thread I did a power cycle on the kiwi. The result was a kiwi screen that told me the browser was using a old cached version of a javascript. I cleared…
  • Update;  The second try terminated after 60 minutes, the 24Hr per IP addr time limit. Mike.
  • jks, that sounds like a good start to me and would allow for quick band hopping.  It should be a simple calculation to convert the wavelength to frequency.  Maybe you could tie into the dx.json file and jump to the first matching ident in a future …
  • OK, Thanks for the explanation. I saw the "user preferences" bug report, I didn't mentally include the band menu with it.   An item such as the band menu could lead to much discussion as to if it's main association is with the radio loca…
