Description

KiwiSDR is a software-defined radio (SDR) covering shortwave, the longwave & AM broadcast bands, various utility stations, and amateur radio transmissions, world-wide, in the spectrum from 10 kHz to 30 MHz. The KiwiSDR is a custom circuit board (cape) you connect to the BeagleBone Green or BeagleBone Black computer. You simply add an antenna, power supply and network connection. The KiwiSDR is available in two versions: the cape alone and a more complete version including BBG, enclosure and GPS antenna. Both versions include software supplied on a micro-SD card.

An HTML5-capable browser and internet connection will let you listen to a public KiwiSDR anywhere in the world. Up to four people can listen simultaneously to one radio — each listener tunes independently.

How does the KiwiSDR handle AM broadcast interference?

Hi Dan. I'll repeat what I answered on the KiwiSDR kit FAQ. Yes, it is possible you'll need an HPF depending on how strong your local AM BCB signals are for your particular antenna. Please see here for more information: http://kiwisdr.com/quickstart/index.html#id-overload
