When the "Green Apple Splatters", its how fast you move that
We offer an SDRserver and a Remote Audio server for your enjoyment...more here.
~~~~~~~~~~ SDR Server ~~~~~~~~~~
The SDR server is generally running in the evenings, but it is not always available. I run a local Apache server so I may be listening from my easy-chair as I watch the "boob-toob" or reading a good book.
The configuration is normal, however the SDRplay shares the Bow Tie Loop with my Yaesu radio and another SDRplay receiver. These radios hear extremely well and they are all tied into one PGA-103 ULNA. The output from this Mini-Circuits device is applied to a 50 OHM low-loss splitter/combiner. The signal path is reduced by 65dB during transmission periods. So you may not hear anything at all if I am transmitting.
I have a suggested setup for the SDRconsole RF gain and Visual gain. Setting these properly will eliminate over load and distortion. The Bow Tie is very good receive antenna for 80-20 Meters. The ULNA does render
reception up to and including 6 meters.
You must have SDRconsole by Simon Brown, Version 2.3 Build 2760 (LIC-7/1/18) installed on your computer.
If you do not have this version, please click the GAS Menu SDRconsole V2.3 link now...download and install.
When you are ready! Follow along here...start your SDRconsole V2 now. When the console starts you see a LOGO screen first and then the Select Radio dialogue (above)...click "NO". The "Select Radio" dialogue box is open with no radio defined.
You may [X] out or click "Cancel" in this box. Along the upper left hand side of the console main display, you will see the "network" remote connection button above the "Home" tab.
It looks like a NETWORK...(Connect to a remote SDR-Radio server). Click on the "icon" and you will be given a "network connection" dialogue box like the one below. Because you have never connected to any SDR-radio using a server the ADDRESS and PORT definitions should be blank. As will be the Username and Password. There is a
set of default credentials, but if you have a problem logging on...drop me an email. Or leave a note in the CHAT on www.MySdr.us (period).
Now, click "Browse Web" for the connection. You will be required to enter the correct Internet address for the XML file...(www.w3gas.com/SDRonair317.xml) This is the correct entry for my SDRplay connection.
A little information here will help. You set up your SDRserver so you can broadcast (stream) your IQ data over the Internet. The "workstation" on the other end does most of the work. The data is there being broadcast is much like a "web-camera" or the "x-box". The SDRconsole program simply captures that data and uses it the same way it would if the SDR radio device were located locally, and plugged into your USB port.
So what happens on the other end? The XML file that tells SDRconsole where the stream is located, that file
must be located on a WEB server. Any WEB server! It can be located locally on your computer, or remote on the Internet, but it must be an HTTP address. The V2-SDRspace Server link can be accessed as well. Here you will find hundreds of SDR Radio servers. Mine happens to be located on my web server, www.W3GAS.com.
