WsprDaemon

a robust  decoding and reporting system for  WSPR

WsprDaemon Configuration files

If you need a very simple example of a wsprdaemon.conf file an example is available here. Download and rename to wsprdaemon.conf and place in your wsprdaemon directory, having first saved any existing .conf file under a different name. See the default conf file for complex examples with scheduling etc.

Help with TimescaleDB and Grafana to query the WsprDaemon database

The WsprDaemon Timescale database is also populated with spots from wsprnet.org, giving users the ability to use the powerful postgreSQL query language on WSPR data. We have two guides to provide an introduction to our Timescale database and its Grafana visualisation interface.

Topical Help

We'll feature here a recent topic where we've helped a WsprDaemon user.

If you are using a KiwiSDR with a firmware release of v1.387 (10 April 2020) or later, on the Admin Control screen is a pull-down box to set the number of simultaneous channels for non-Kiwi apps. Kiwirecorder.py, used in WsprDaemon, is considered a non-kiwi app, so set this to 8. And, on the Extensions screen, under the Autorun heading, check that all the Autorun channels are set to 'regular use'. Thanks to Heikki, OH8GKP.
