KiwiSDR - Beaglebone Green


the KiwiSDR is a Software Defined Radio that plugs in to a Beaglebone and is open source hardware running open source software (Debian arm) i was wondering if anyone else has been hacking around on this device to see what other distros and alternative SDR software will run the radio part of this device?

i been using it for about 2 weeks now and i like it, it connects to a PC or router or hub/swich by the ethernet port and can receive from 10KHz to 30MHz AM & SSB, it also has a GPS receiver too, other than connecting to it via an HTML5 capable browser i also SSHed in to it and tweaked the software just a little, it would be nice if GQRX could run the radio too

hello? i dont even hear an echo in here. no kiwisdr users? i was hoping to find kiwisdr users that are proficient in Linux or even familiar with Linux enough to know the difference between MS_WIndows and Linux :\, the kiwisdr forum looks sort of dead, or basically one tech guy that is really really busy that does not have time to converse with people because he has a life (wife, kids, job, school etc..) and i was hoping enough kiwisdr users that know or sort-of know their way around Linux enough to get some communication going about beaglebone and kiwisdr to see what all makes this device tick, since it is open source the more proficient users should be able to hack their way through it, i seen a directory with CuteSDR when i sshed in to it at /root/Beagle_SDR_GPS/rx/CuteSDR/ with some source code in it so maybe this thing can be tweaked to run on CuteSDR since it possibly pulled some code from that repo, i know that is the nature of GNU/FOSS that code is shared and borrowed freely, i have the SDR radio working great with the in-house software which is an fork of Openwebrx rebuilt exclusively for kiwisdr,, this receiver is unique as a SDR in that it can display the entire HF spectrum all at once from 0 to 30MHz, i would like to see GQRX and CubicSDR have access to this radio besides the in-house software, dont get me wrong the in-house software is good i am using it right now and i can see the kiwisdr people put a lot of work in to making it good, but like Linux i like to change things up on occasion (variety is the spice of life) just like window managers on a weekly basis, some days i will run xfce, other days i will run openbox, other days maybe windowmaker or IceWM, i like the variety Linux offers and i want to see that in KiwiSDR too

so basically what i am saying is i want to own this thing, i dont want it to own me

i have since abandoned this SDR receiver, debian on the beaglebone runs good however the kiwisdr software is buggy and unstable, i have since abandoned this radio until some better alternative software is found, i recommend not buying this product until better software is developed for it
