• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hello,

I have a very noisy location here in the city. I want to locate an SDR out in a rural area and link the SDR back to my location in the city for low noise listening.

Now here is where my idea gets weird. I want to locate the radio out in a field, with nothing more than a solar panel and battery with a wifi link that connects back to a hard wired Internet connection.

A lot of these SDR radios claim to work with Linux and have a "Server Backend" but I don't see too much information about the specifics.

Does anyone know of a SDR radio that will work with a Linux/FreeBSD server daemon that will allow clients to connect to it?

I was thinking something along the lines of WebSDR by those guys in the Netherlands. Unfortunately they haven't made the code available to the public.

All of the commercially available SDR radios I bump into seem to hinge on a Windows client/server model.

Thanks!

Take a look at the QS1R. I seem to remember that this operates in a linux client/server (or Windows) configuration. More information can be had by joining the QS1R group:
