HackRF world receiver and antenna

Post by neuron » Fri Feb 02, 2018 12:31 am

Dear Members,

I received a free HackRF for implement a world receiver.
What software is available and the users around the world can receive the signals?

Another Question:
Ant500 https://www.greatscottgadgets.com/ant500
In the antenna base the metal is squeeze, near the screw.
The problem is the antenna oscillate a little, this is normal and can I transmit
with this gap?

Thank you
Rui

What's a world receiver? Like a WebSDR that can be accessed over the internet?

I'm not sure if there is any web SDR support for the HackRF at the moment. The SDR-Console server might work.

It seems that OpenWebRX already supports the HackRF, "currently supports RTL-SDR, HackRF, SDRplay, AirSpy and many other devices, see the OpenWebRX Wiki,", so it shouldn't be a problem to use it.

For the antenna, i'd just ensure that good electrical contact is being made.

Dr. András Retzler:
"I’m using OpenWebRX with a HackRF to monitor the 20m band and demodulate a BPSK31 QSO"

Any other software?

Ant500 - I tested with a DMM, my Q is anyone with this gap?
