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.

Try it right now! Listen to KiwiSDR registered on the sdr.hu website.

    Neat Receiver I enjoy using the KiwiSDR. The ability to use it over the network with a web browser is a great way to use a receiver. The software for it is outstanding and is updated on an ongoing basis to include new features and fix anomalies. It is quite stable and just works. A good receiver is dependent on a good antenna and a low RF noise environment.

    Nicely done I am happy with the KiwiSDR board from Seeed. My only problem was ordering just as Chinese New Year was happening and they folks at Seeed went on holiday. My fault, I should have known better. but once they returned, I was impressed with the speed on getting my order to me.

    The board itself is a high quality manufacture. Very impressed and pleased.

    Initial impressions after a few days use. The KiwiSDR board wth the Seed Beaglebone Green and software from OpenWebRX is a excellent product. Easy to get started and a joy to use for me and my friends. I have been an active radio amateur for over 40 years and this product is a milestone for me. It gives wonderful opportunities for remote listening from a QTH with a far better local noise factor than my ordinary QTH.
