Re: Airspy HF+ or Discovery with WebSDR (Twente) suggestions? #airspydiscovery #airspyhfplus

SV1BTL
 

WebSDR (Twente version, not OpenWebRX) and Airspy HF+ or Discovery

 

I have just installed a server using a WebSDR Twente version and an Airspy Discovery (HF+ has been also tested).

Using a modified version of airspy driver for Linux (from ON5HB) and making the necessary modifications for band operation (with a help from SV2AMK), I have the final version for testing on air.

The "issue" is the band operation, because of the limited bandwidth of Aispy (768KHz), so users must ask for a QSY from other users (if any and using the chat window), which QSY is free to anyone. Band operation is realized with several config files, each one auto-activated from the GUI, for each amateur band. PC is a Raspberry Pi3 B+.

I think WebSDR is better handling AGC and delay than Openwebrx, on the other hand Openwebrx is better because of plugins, but at the same time SDR# is maybe the best client software for Airspy.
My Airspy Discovery is located in Athens, Greece, in a rather noisy environment and I am using an EndFed antenna with length 20 m. 8m. high and two RF Chokes (one at the feed point of the antenna and the other just before coaxial is entering the shack). I am also using band preselector, automatically activated for each ham band, but in case of Airspy Discovery there is no need for it.

S-meter is very well calibrated.

Please give a try and if anybody is interested or can make any suggestions and improvements, please contact. The server will accept clients using the address below, for a couple of weeks.

P.S. I apologize for my English.

Win10 updated itself, the existing SDRsharp wouldn't open, even after adding to the whitelist in Kaspersky AV, uninstalled Kaspersky, tried using Defender, same problem.

Eventually found an older SDRsharp.exe which worked, not ideal as the current exe is faster and has better features but at least it works.

I think it is more than a name. I think it sees that
it sends data to the internet, so it must be a virus.
(it sends SDR data because it is a server program)
You would think they would be smarter than that
and realize not all servers are bad or malicious.

As was said before, report it as a false positive.

If you dig around in settings you can find how to create exclusions in BitDefender. And you can almost always find a way to submit false alarms which eventually get fixed.

Alan,
Thanks for the advice on disabling Defender real-time protection.  This did allow me to download the file and put the unzipped contents into a new folder.  Then I re-enabled Defender and unfortunately it immediately gives a severe warning, identifying it as "Trojan:Win32/CryptInj!MSR", found in spyserver_ping.exe.  So not worth the risk to leave Defender off to run Spyserver.

The version of Spyserver that came packaged with v1700 of SDR# still runs OK, and I am able to connect to it with v1822 of SDR# - so unless the "dangerous" newer version of Spyserver has some new feature(s) or improvement, I should be OK.  Perhaps the software developers can use this information in developing a future Spyserver version.

Re: Where are my settings after switching from ZIP file to EXE installation #sdrsharp

jdow
 

Replace changed files not just sdrsharp.exe. It is likely a good idea to leave out of the update files with .config and .xml suffixes. For SDRSharp, itself, I simply create a folder WITH the version number in its name and unwrap SDRSharp there and then copy appropriate files over the active files in the "SDRSharp" folder. In my brief flirtation with C# I concluded it is designed to discourage the use of ProgramFiles and AppData locations and went back to C++ (and my own XML tools which think the way I do so they are easier for me to use.)

Thanks for the insights, Keith.

Expanding a ZIP into a folder is not a standard installation procedure in Windows. Nor is it standard to store user settings in the same place as the application's files. Your method for updating this strange installation makes sense.

The SDRSharp-installer.exe does a more standard installation, including adding the SDR# to what used to be called the Start menu. But it still doesn't keep user files in the user's area and application files in the system area. Given that, I should update this installation not by re-running SDRSharp-installer.exe but by replacing only SDRSharp.exe extracted from the latest ZIP file.

I realize now that my memory of importing frequency bookmarks was with SDR++, a look-alike product available for several platforms. Gqrx (on Linux) remains, for me, the easiest SDR software to use. SDR# offers some interesting additional functionality, but is rather complicated and opaque. And don't get me started on the clunky, confusing sluggishness of Windows!

Any suggestions for using WebSDR server with Airspy HF+ or Discovery?


Use SDR# to connect to a KiwiSDR?

Bruce KX4AZ
 

I recently set up a KiwiSDR, and while it doesn't have the (amazing) sensitivity of my Airspy HF+ Discovery, it is useful to view the entire 0-30 Mhz spectrum in real time wth the Kiwi.  But I am curious whether there might be a way to display smaller slices of the Kiwi spectrum using SDR#, since I prefer the spectrum/waterfall display that SDR# provides.  I have a vague notion that there might be some type of IQ feature in SDR# or the KiwiSDR server to accomplish that, even if just for local LAN access due to the high bandwidth needed.  Has anyone here attempted to do this?

Hello,

I'm not able to download spyserver. Every time getting a warning from Avast
(21.8.2487 (build 21.8.6586.693)
(211003-10)
I contacted Avast support some times. The said they cleared it. But still the same.

Re: New Frequency Manager Suite for SDR#

sdrs.freqmgr@...
 

Hi JColes0727.  No, Data Tools is not a 64-bit application; all of the FMSuite apps and plugins are compiled to "Any CPU" for the highest compatibility.  However you do need the correct Windows runtime modules from Microsoft to match your version of Windows.  You may obtain these from https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet/5.0.  Just look in the right-hand column for the topic ".NET Desktop Runtime 5.0.10" and download the Windows x86 file for 32-bit Windows or x64 file for 64-bit Windows.

Thanks for trying my software.
Jeff

Certainly a Zip is a method which I very much prefer, rather than running some
massive "setup.exe" where you have no idea what is being added to your system
or where it is being placed.

Very many programs still store settings along with the program's files and
again I have no problems with that, although I accept that this is no longer
the standard for Microsoft. It can come down to effort - if it works, leave
it, and instead put the effort into improving the software, and providing the
exciting new features.

Cheers,
David
