WebSDR at K7UEB Walla Walla University Club Station
This is a beta test WebSDR receiver, located at Walla Walla University,
in College Place, Washington, on the West Coast of the USA.
It is operated by Rob Frohne, KL7NA, e-mail my call sign at arrl dot
net. The hardware consists of a three Softrock down converters
(thanks to Tony, KB9YIG) which are fed into an M-Audio Delta 1010LT
sound card on a Pentium III Dell computer.
The software is from PA3FWM, and is not released yet.
More information about the WebSDR project can be found on http://www.websdr.org.
receiver is tuned to two parts of the 20 meter amateur radio band. The
frequencies from 14.150 to 14.200 often have US and foreign amateur
operators. The frequencies between 14.100 and 14.200 are mostly
Canadian and other foreign amateur stations. They are on upper sideband
(USB). The frequencies from 14.000 MHz to 14.100 MHz are used for
digital modes like CW, PSK31, RTTY, etc. The 40 meter receiver is tuned
to the digital and foreign phone (voice) band, so you can hear a
variety of types of signals there.
There is PSK Spotting software running using the same audio stream that you can listen to here. If you look here, you can see a map with all the stations heard in the last 24 hours.
A brief description of the hardware and software used on this websdr server is here, for those interested.
The K7UEB club station is also used in WSPR, the Weak Signal Propagation Reporter Network. WSPR transmits a QRP signal during 2 minute windows approximately 3 to 4 times an hour. During these transmission windows, the websdr receivers experience intense interference. Go to the WSPR map and enter the call "K7UEB" (TS-590S), "K7UEB/20" (20M SDR) or "K7UEB/40" (40M SDR) to see who we've spotted and who has spotted us.
enabled for this
page to work properly. If you don't hear anything, probably Java is
disabled or its version is too old (i.e., pre-1.4.2). If you are
using Ubuntu 10.10, in Synaptic you need to remove the icedtea6-plugin
and install the sun-java6-plugin. If you would like sun-java6 to use pulseaudio on in Ubuntu 10.10, have a look at this page that also tells you how to use Fldigi and the Jack Audio Connection Kit to demodulate digital modes with websdr and Ubuntu 10.10.
