Chris,
You need to call it 80eu instead of ja.

Hi Chris,

No apologies are needed.  Your installation must not have been from executing 'git clone ....', so your ~/wsprdaemon directory has no 'git' information in it.
Here is how I would install v2.10k while preserving the existing config file:

cd ~/wsprdaemon/
./wsprdaemon.sh -z
cd ~
mv  ~/wsprdaemon ~/wsprdaemon.save
cp ~/wsprdaemon.save/wsprdaemon.conf  ~/wsprdaemon/wsprdaemon.conf  
cd ~/wsprdaemon/
./wsprdaemon.sh -a

Rob

Thanks, exactly what I was looking for, and I now know precisely when the antenna performance fell off the cliff, so to speak (17 December, 0118 UTC).  If only it weren't a 980 mile drive from my QTH.

Re: Updating live installation?

Great, my thanks again to you Rob.


Re: Updating live installation?

Rob Robinett
 

./wsprdaemon.sh -V   (that is a capital 'V') will display the version number.

I'll put a 'no same call' option in WD V3.0, but I think it is useful so I won't make it the default.
wspnet.org drops such calls, but the wsprdaemon extend spots database keeps them.

Did you ever manage to put an option in for no own call decodes?

Thanks for the great software and all the best from England.

Hello,
you can find the wspr daemon noise data on wspr.live ( https://wspr.live ) in the Station Noise Stats dashboard. On that page you can chaneg the time frame in the top right corner. You can zoom into the data by holding your mouse down while on one of the graphs.

This link shows me noise data for past day, but I was unsure how to view a wider time range to include the past month (apologies for my limited skills)...

Re: BYpass feedline

Glenn Elmore
 

I would agree with Rob, see if you can't use native WiFi on those controllers that have it.  I'm not very familliar with the RPIKiwi but I think the FlyDog is similar. You may need to use an RPI4 rather than RPI3 to keep up with things though, I'm not sure. Probably someone on here knows the answers to all this.

I think Clint and Holger have R*Kiwis, but I doubt either attached a dongle.  But doesn't the Pi have built in Wifi?  If so, then:

A 0-2 GHz Frequency Extender for the KiwiSDR

Glenn Elmore
 

The attached pdf describes a project I've been working on to create a 0-2 GHz frequency extender for the KiwiSDR. This is in an early phase, it is NOT in mass production nor available for sale. It should be considered vaporware in this regard. I'm showing it now to indicate what is possible. It is capable of providing WSPR operation on all amateur bands up through 23 cm. Whether this project will progress beyond working hardware and software probably depends on someone else eventually becoming involved.
