  • Bent power jack on KiwiSDR board

    Spend a minute or two with an ohmmeter verifying that the replacement is indeed constructed with the same pinout as the original. We know from sad experience that the Beagle & Kiwi don't survive polarity reversal.

  • Bent power jack on KiwiSDR board

    If there is a manufacturing quality problem then Seeed support should really replace/swap the board. However, the connector you want is called a "DC-044". I found them on Amazon US by searching in the "Industrial & Scientific" category. Example:

  • New KiwiSDR forum: differences and features

    Welcome to the new KiwiSDR forum, hosted on and running the latest Vanilla 3.3 forum software.

    All of the forum content from was copied over including attachments, avatars, inboxes etc.

    The most problematic issue will be external links from other places pointing to specific forum posts. Forum links were previously of the form and need to be changed to the form This is of course impossible for immutable (non-editable) content like links embedded in Twitter tweets. It was not possible to automatically redirect references from the Valent forum for various reasons. So if you have editable links into the old forum please update them. However, links to old posts on Valent will continue to work as long as Valent hosts the old KiwiSDR content.

    Also, the time to edit your posts is not limited on this forum (previously the limit was one day). So if your post contains a link back to Valent you can simply edit it to correct the link per the above. In theory this shouldn't be necessary as the database was scrubbed very carefully to update all the links.

    The forum has a slightly different look but basically the same features. The biggest change is editing posts. There is no longer a "preview" button. When using the new paragraph icon on the left margin, and also when double-clicking on words and making text selections, the formatting changes are immediate. It is a "what you see is what you get" (WYSIWYG) interface. Experiment and you'll see how it works.

    The search box is at top right. Use the "Mark All Viewed" button on the top bar as all the previous viewed information has been reset.

    If you are having any problems (e.g. can't login, can't post, getting error messages, etc.) please email

  • Command MU

    mu is an alias for make users And doing make -n users reveals that it does a:
    zcat /var/log/user.log.4.gz > /tmp/kiwi.log;
    zcat /var/log/user.log.3.gz >> /tmp/kiwi.log;
    zcat /var/log/user.log.2.gz >> /tmp/kiwi.log;
    cat /var/log/user.log.1 >> /tmp/kiwi.log;
    cat /var/log/user.log >> /tmp/kiwi.log;
    cat /tmp/kiwi.log | grep -i leaving | grep -vi kf6vo | grep -vi 192.168.1
    rm -f /tmp/kiwi.log
    So /var/log/user.* are the log files you'd want to search and copy information from. As usual with Unix there are a dozen different ways of doing this sort of thing depending on the result you want.
  • Default colormap [added in v1.414]

    Okay, added in today's v1.414 release.
