Thanks. Now you have allow_control = 0, so you can allow many clients to connect at the same time without problems. For that, you can set:
maximum_clients = 10

Since you are also using an Airspy R2, you can also add/uncomment these:

force_8bit = 1
initial_gain = <set something suitable - Use SDR# to figure it out>
maximum_bandwidth = 15000

I see you want to cover the 2m ham band with 10MSPS. I think 2.5 MSPS is enough and will save a lot of CPU:
device_sample_rate = 2500000

Thanks for the quick answer. I agree with you that it's nice to be able to access the spyserver from Sdrsharp but it would be nice to access the spyserver from a tablet or phone on holiday (or at work!) for example.
How can I replace my public IP address by a name like mysite:5555 ? 
Thanks again for your help. 
Regards,
James

The purpose of the SpyServer is not to have yet another fancy but limited web interface. The whole idea behind this architecture is to access remote radios while still benefiting from the power of a desktop application with all its plugins and specialized DSP processing. I need to get extremely bored to go the full web road - and there's a lot of stuff to do for the upcoming years. If you only need a radio on the web, you can use the wonderful OpenWebRX. It works fine with all Airspy products.

I don't know why but my spyserver doesn't always show up in the spyserver list. It appears then disappears. What could be the problem  
Check your internet.

I understand.

I must think about an R2 to improve my spyserver.

Is anybody selling a used R2 or mini?

Because the port is already used.

Sometimes, when trying start spyserver on my rasp i get:

pi@raspi:~/spyserver $ ./spyserver
SPY Server v2.0.1700
Copyright (C) 2016-2018 Youssef Touil - https://airspy.com
Reading the configuration file: spyserver.config
Unable to bind 0.0.0.0 to 8089

Why?

I need to use always this TCP port becouse my tcp rule is to this port.

Thank's


Re: Airspy HF+ used with Icom 7600

Mark Jessop
 

I've used other HF SDRs with an IC-7600 - the panadapter in the 7600 is a bit weak (but it is quite an old radio), so having the separate external panadapter is definitely nice.

Probably the best way to hook it up (in my opinion) is using the RX loop ports and a 2-way power divider. Connect the RX Loop 'OUT' port on the rig to the input of the divider, connect one output of the divider to the RX Loop 'IN' port, and the other to the Airspy HF+. Of course this means a 3dB loss of signal, but short of cracking the radio open and tapping into an IF somewhere, it's a small price to pay...

As for software, I've previously used Simon Brown's SDR Console and OmniRig to allow SDR Console's VFO to track the 7600's VFO, and vice-versa. There may be a plugin for SDR# that allows similar functionality, but I haven't checked recently.

This kind of setup works well on any rig with RX Loop Ports (higher end Icoms, Elecraft K3, etc).

Re: New SDR# and SpyServer release r1700 with directory listing #airspy #sdrsharp #spyserver

J P Watters <kc9kko@...>
 

I would like to run the native air spy server and BlackCat Systems https://blackcatsystems.com/software/airspyhf_macos_server.html
to serve a airspy R2 with a spyverter such that the I/Q stream could be decoded by both native air spy software and native OSX software such as SDRx

The issue is that SDRx only will decode the RFSPACE protocol.

How would I install BlackCat Systems https://blackcatsystems.com/software/airspyhf_macos_server.html
on a raspberry pi 3B+ or an Odroid U4 that would also serve the the native Airspy server protocol.

I would typically just use either the SDR-radio V3 (on windows) or SDRx(on MACOSX) at separate times
or if the software would allow it use both programs at the same time. 

Please advise of how to best install these two programs to coexist on one rPi or OdroidU4 server.

I think SpyServer already works with GQRX in the dev branch. The next release should officialize it.

Thanks for your reply! I'll check that site for sure.

PS: I cross my fingers to have soon a stable release of GQRX with native SpyServer support.
