  • 8-10dBm drop in signals after update from v1.601 to v1.675 [fixed in v1.679]

    😕 Knowing that, I developed and tested a fix for this problem in about 10 minutes. Fix will be in the next release..

  • Software defined lighning detector?

    Christoph has done work with piecing together (relatively) wideband output from the Kiwi to measure ionogram chirps: https://hcab14.blogspot.com

  • v1.677

    From the CHANGE_LOG file:

    v1.677 May 5, 2024

      Click-hold the frequency step buttons "- - - + + +" for auto repeat.


      Fixed various issues with auto aperture mode:

        When the waterfall was panned or scrolled too many requests to adjust the aperture piled up.

        If the strongest signals were fading significantly this caused the noise floor displayed to

        bounce up and down unnecessarily. Now the aperture should adjust only once per pan/zoom.

         

        To help keep the noise floor displayed in a darker colormap color capped the WF min/max

        delta to >= 50 dB.

         

        Added a second auto-scale button (when aperture averaging mode is "off") so you don't

        have to scroll up to get to the usual auto-scale button at the top of the WF tab.

       

      Fixed frequency undo/redo (i.e. typing shift-return). Didn't work properly in 10 Hz

      frequency display mode.

       

      Improved wording of password-related messages in the log when a user connects.


      Added shell alias "cl" for cleaning (reducing size of) the Debian system logs.

      Same as "clean logs" button in admin console tab.

  • Who you are, where you are and what are your KiWi's ?

    Okay, I added a plugin that allows some content to be added to profiles. For now just Location, Callsign and "Additional information". Let me know if you think we should have others. Look at my profile as an example (click "jks" at the top of this post).

    The content isn't presented very optimally. It just appears at the top of the user's profile page.

    I also re-enabled the "reactions" feature (i.e. adding "helpful", "awesome" to posts like we used to have).
