Re: Odyssey online

David Fainitski

Hello, Dave.
You can try to copy all files from work's filesystem in my image ("linux" partition) to filesystem partition in your image for PI3.
If it will not work, use my config file for QUISK

Re: Odyssey online

David Turner

Would it be possible to change boot loader, so this program will run on raspberry pi3 ?
I have Linux Ubuntu mate,plus quisk 4.0.4 on pi3  just require *Radio* settings for *Odyssey*  

Many thanks.

I have plane to test the new design of bridge, more compactly. If It will work good, each ordered the Odyssey will receive it as a gift.




David Fainitski

Everybody could be order Odyssey on Kickstarter a few days ago.I can probably make more devices that people were able to buy...
For  mass production needs investments and possibilities for sales...

I am very impressed with the Odyssey!! I could use it as a Transceiver  or a sdr receiver  in my station. When will it be available to the public??

Odyssey online

David Fainitski

I have prepared the image for ultracheap 4-core OrangePI PC

Was installed:

QUISK 4.04



openvpn server

openwebrx server

Download the image from

For using, write this image to 4, 8, 16 GB SD-card with Win32DiskImager (under Windows).

Install this SD-card into OrangePI PC and run. Password "orangepi".

After the first starting, execute in Terminal:

sudo fs_resize


All needed links are locating  on Desktop.

Duble ckick on "QUISK" for Quisk starting. The config file is located in the /home/orangepi

For starting the ghpsdr-alex server, run "hiqsdr-server" and "dspsrever".  Config files for setting located in /home/orangepi, these are hiqsdr.cfg and dspserver.conf. You can use client's programms in your home network, as glSDR under Android or QTRadio under Windows or Linux

Connect to the IP of your OrangePI in your home network. Run ifconfig in terminal for information.

If you want to share server via internet, you need have a "white external IP". To obtain it, you need to use the VPN service, example Put the obtaned config files ca.crt, client.conf, pass.txt  into /etc/openvpn. Run the "VPN_Start" from desktop. Run the "Chromium Web Browser" and look your IP with, you need to see your "white IP". After that, your server will be visible in the server-list and everybody can use It via internet with client's programm. 

You can also setup the private netvork connection (VPN) directly trough you PC and OrangePI,without "white IP", but in this case only you be able to use transceiver via internet.

Openwebrx server is allow to use the RTL-SDR dongle. The config file is exist in the /home/orangepi/Downloads/openwebrx  For using this server don't need a client's programm, just run http://your_ip_address:8073  in any web browser. Many users can use server via internet if OrangePI working with the "white IP". Read more about the project here 

Good luck !

 Congratulations on  Achieving your goal of 5000 euro.


ML052 - active magnet loop antenna test and compare.

David Fainitski

ML052 it's an analog of ML200 antenna.

I have tested It and compare with  the famouse Miniwhip PA0RDT active antenna.

I can conclude that ML052 works much better then Miniwhip from VLF to 40m band.

From 40m and above they work approximately equally.

See the screens...  Keep in mind  that my conditions for radio receiving are very bad.

I just wanted to tell you that I love your project and I've written a blog post about it:

Odyssey TRX - open-source SDR DDC/DUC transceiver

I hope it becomes successful, as at some point I would like to build a home-base transceiver around it.

Good luck with the Kickstarter campaign !
