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 GreenorBeagleBone 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.huwebsite.


Features

  • Extension interface for adding decoders and utilities.

    Is a power supply required for simple HF listening, or is the voltage from the usb enough? Also, I/O can be through ethernet or USB, correct?

    I take back the part about I/O through USB.  Just the question about the power supply.  Thanks.

    Hi Dan. Power has to be applied to the Kiwi's round (2.1/5.5 mm) DC jack. 5V @ 1.5 to 2A. USB power on the BBG can't handle the current (it won't even power-up). See here: http://kiwisdr.com/quickstart/index.html#id-power

    Thank you. Just one follow up: Will I need a preselector/high pass filter for strong AM interference?
