i use this to check out quality of transmission.
Fine tune voice echo if you use.
Check out frequencie lock.
Check out DX direction.
Check out bandwidth.
Can compare how good your receive is.
Confirms you rig actually getting out when you wondering why no one is answering! 😋
Actually very good to run side by side with rig because you can see whole band because its a spectrum analyser so you can jump straight to activity when you see it.
Couple of stations near me with excellent antennas up.
I was surprised how far i kick out on a junk homebase antenna and lowest power setting.

Good info there Pat.

I've also used websdr to find SDR radio stations and most sites can also run from your phone. Even when away from my radio I check out the G0XBU receiver and see if any propogation comes up on 27MHz.

It also comes in handy if you don't seem to be getting through a DX call. You can choose a receiver near there location and hear if they're getting a pile-up at their end.

Radio Hams have been using this sort of stuff for years, but what makes me laugh is when they're giving each other 5/9 reports via SDR stations ?!?!?! Very Happy

Nice post mate.


All the best,
Victor

One day i was over on the US servers, last year, skip was up crazy in the US. 10s of thousands on there, going crazy all across every channel all over the US on multiple servers.
I was sitting in the US DX channel somewhere up in the 30s, listening to this group, then this guy says out my location and name and says welcome to the SDR channel.
Im like what the heck, hows he done that. Turns out it was his Kiwi SDR server and he could see me logged into the stats panel. Very surreal.

Ha, Ha! Very Happy
Yeah, some even have chat boxes as well as stat panels. 

It's all fair enough, but I miss the old days when you were listening to say a Ham QSO rag chew and as they signed off they'd give a thanks etc. to the SWLs, (shortwave listeners). No way of knowing who's listening but the possibility was enough for an acknowledgment to be given. As an SWL it used to make me smile.

Heck, even commercial radio stations would send cards or gifts if you sent them a listeners report.

Happy days.....old fart I am Wink

Hi Martin,

Try the following link :-

G0XBU web sdr


It should pop up looking like a radio at the moment, controls and frequency at the top with a waterfall display underneath.
I know it works well with Firefox, Safari and Chrome Web browsers but I don't use Windows so can't vouch for Explorer.

If it ever 'freezes' you should be able to hit the refresh button on the browser to get it started again.

It's the one I use most of the time to monitor freeband activity in the UK to check propogation.

It's "oop north like" so you can drop in and listen to local breakers up there, (be prepared for the UK 19 DJ's and the effing/effing/effing/told you so kind of chat Wink)

It even has a stripped down 'mobile' version that will run on tablets and smart mobile phones! Smile
That's how I tend to use it so I can take a quick look and see if any foreign stations are coming over when I'm away from the radio.

There's other bands available too if you fancy listening to the 'dark side', ahem, Ham bands Wink Very Happy


Know what you mean though mate, all a little confusing if you've not used it.
You're right in that you can get USB dongles and boxes that plug into your computer and run software to listen. It's like having a communication receiver hooked up to the PC, but you'll still need antennas and other such to get it to work properly. Even then the cheaper/smaller units don't work as well as a 'proper' radio.

The 'web sdr' versions are a little better especially the kind I've linked to. Someone else has the USB box, usually a better/expensive version and often know what they're doing with decent antenna setups etc. You just pop on the web address and listen to your heart's content.
Unfortunately not all are set up as well, (like the Kiwi SDR versions mentioned above), poor antennas, poor reception, heck you could stick out a wet finger from your window and get better reception Wink


When you suss that one it shouldn't take you long to suss out the others too.
Then you can click around the map on the webSDR site and listen to breakers around the world. I often log into the USA sites and listen to the breakers over there knowing the solar skip is heading towards us and I'll be able to talk to them directly once again! Smile


If you get stuck Martin, feel free to give me a shout. I'm damned sure if this old fart can suss it then anyone can Very Happy

All the best.

Cheers Victor,  I do have a monitoring site that's in Italy that listen to but I was after a couple more so I will give this a go later.

No worries Martin.

If you go to the webSDR site, (link below), then you can type in say 27.5MHz on the frequency box at the top.

WebSDR


That way you'll see a list of receivers around the world with the links, but you can also view a map at the bottom of the page.
The ROMA2 Italian site is on that list, probably the one you use? Always handy if you want to check if they've got a pile-up at their end but also handy to see if your transmission gets there too! Smile

Unfortunately there isn't a huge amount of listening stations for CB frequencies, more Ham based but still good.

Anyway mate, have fun Smile
