It's been a long time, since I've written here. I knew it was a doomed idea to make a blog.
So here are some updates on the WebSDR.
WebSDR moved to new address, where I've prepared more WebSDRs for you to listen to.
You will find them on varna.radio. I will finish the site one day... :)
There is also a database with all the repeaters in Bulgaria too. Me and LZ2DMV are maintaning the DB. It is hosted on the same site.
You will find the database and the JS library which will help you with the DB also there.
For some time, I'm trying to make use of my free time, by contributing to OpenWebRX+ project, maintained by Marat. I've integrated Leaflet with OpenStreetMaps to the project and I'm making the docker images and the RPi images. I'm also preparing an automated environment for building these images, as for the Debian (x86-64, armv7 and arm64) packages, which are published on debian and ububtu repos of the project.
You can read of how to install it here, or you can use my docker images or the Raspberry Pi images.
The WebSDR was upgraded too. I've replaced the RPi 4 with a TinyPC.
A Lenovo with Intel Core-i5 and 4GB RAM.
I needed more CPU power to be able to run all the background decoders.
There are 3x RTL-SDR dongles and 1x RSP1 (original) receiver. One of the RTL dongles is for ADS-B reception only, because it has amplifier and filters for 1090mhz.
The main RTL is coupled with Diamond X-300, the second RTL is coupled with Diamond X-50 and the ADS-B is with a home made antenna for 1090mhz. The SDRPlay RSP1 is coupled with Comet Discone DS-150S, which allows it to listen to the HF.
Now, let's see if it takes another 2 years to drop a line on this blog.
