Title: NEAR-Fest SDR
Post by: W1RC on May 13, 2022, 10:15:56 PM
Welcome to the NEAR-Fest remotely operated Software Defined Receiver (SDR).  This one covers from 10KHz to 30.0 MHz. 

It is located at my home in Marblehead Mass.

If mine is down or you want one with a better antenna try Damon WU1T?s SDR in Salem MA, approximately 1.7 miles from my QTH: http://beefy.fun:8073

Here are the operating instructions: http://kiwisdr.com/ks/using_Kiwi.html

Here is a database of the SDRs online: http://kiwisdr.com/public/

Here are more detailed instructions: http://kiwisdr.com/quickstart/index.html#id-user

The main feature of the KiwiSDR is that it connects to your router and is accessible either on your network only or via the Internet.  If you want an SDR that connects to your computer and uses software on it you should like at the SDRPlay SDRs also from the UK. Their web site is here: https://www.sdrplay.com/products/
In the US the SDRPlayreceivers are available from Ham Radio Outlet.  The entry level RSP1A is $125.00. https://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-015965 and their top model, the RSPDuo that features two independent tuners, is just under $300.00. 

Still want a KiwiSDR?  There is a shortage right now but I found this one in the UK.  ?216.63 plus ?18.00 postage. https://www.hamradio.co.uk/sdr-seeed-studio/seeedstudio/kiwisdr-10-khz-to-30-mhz-web-interface-pd-13595.php
