Hi Roberto

I have spyserver running on my rpi 3b+ on my LAN. I am not that familiarised with Hamachi LogMeIn. A quick glance just last night at it. Thanks again for the advice.

Is there a way the community installer can install the update somewhere other than the C drive?


HF+/Discovery and Raspberry Pi?

Frank O'Donnell
 

I'm interested in using my HF+ or HF+ Discovery with a Raspberry Pi running SDR control software and WSJT-X as a monitor for JT9 and possibly other digital modes.

Is anyone doing anything like this? I gather that SoapySDR and Linrad are options for the SDR software. Wondering what would be the easiest approach overall.

Thanks for any ideas,

Frank

Hamachi build a mesh network... there’s only a package.... I installed Ubuntu server on orange pi and all package for run airspy-hf.  Once all work and tested on lan,  I installed hamachi  armhf deb   Package

P.s. if you do not have vpn esperienze tray and experiment hamachi on s couple win pc

Hi Steve,

Yes, I also run a remote KiwiSDR (as well as two Perseus remotes). The Perseus server are personal to me on private IPs, but the Kiwi is public. It is nice to see who's on, and, on occasion take executive action. But Kiwi doesn't log / store the information, it just displays it (afaik).

The only thing wrong with Kiwi (I'm drifting off topic but hey) is the latency. Sooner or later they will use a faster SoC. Oh, and the fact that click tuning on ssb places the click frequency in the centre of the passband not at the carrier frequency making tuning doubly tedious - latency plus the certainty of first click error.

The excellent Airspy products still have room to evolve the user friendly features that would be appreciated by the market sector they are sold in. Always good to hold something back. For a while.

Indeed there might or might not be information there, according to the wishes of the server operator. The right to disclose that information lies with the operator, as opposed to the user's right to have it.

There is one aspect not yet touched upon that would be of interest to actual or would be server operators, particularly regarding servers that are actually of some use (located in a relevant location, free of interference etc) as opposed the other half that serve no useful purpose whatsoever, having inadequate antennas or located in far from quiet locations.

If the server was a paid for service then the means by which a server operator could be contacted would be laid out in the contract, and if a user objected to the contract terms they would be free to look elsewhere.

The other related topic on identifying users by IP address opens a can of worms in relation to data protection.

Re: Spyserver users #spyserver

Dave GW4GTE
 

Hi Gary,

Pseudo-legal arguments aside, I personally agree it 'would be nice' for the server operator to see some data on how popular it is - always nice to feel wanted. This has been asked for before by me and others, to no avail sadly.

I'm not sure if any server 'brands' / apps do this.

One could argue visiting a server online is much the same as visiting any online site, and any privacy concerns could be easily handled in much the same way.

Re: Spyserver users #spyserver

João Fonseca
 

Thanks for all of your input.
Indeed I have found some users that don't specify which antenna is being used and that information is interesting to know (at least for me) to compare reception all around the globe... for instance when two locations are close from each other and the emission station is very far away with two different antennas. Of course there are some other variables like antenna height, distance from interference sources, etc. but overall it's still a valuable comparison to make in my opinion.

Recording SpyServer Stream

Mike Jackson
 

I have an RTL-SDR attached to a RPi4 with SpyServer running forced to 8-bit compression and Full IQ is allowed.  On my remote PC using SDRSharp 1715 connected to my SpyServer at 106.25kHz bandwith full IQ and recording baseband at 8-bits I get only a 44 byte long file despite recording for 30 seconds or so.  Needless to say I can't replay this file.  I do get thousands of dropped buffers even though my network in capable of 100Mbps, is this a probable cause?

So my question is can I record IQ across the network and if so what settings on both the Spyserver end and PC end are required?
