Call for proposals: Free KiwiSDR placement in exotic locations

2 likes

One more update. You may recall one of the Kickstarter rewards called "LISTENER" was intended to fund the free placement of publicly-accessible KiwiSDRs in unique and useful locations around the world. Combined with our own matching contribution there are funds for several locations depending on how much support equipment is required. We will reimburse all fixed costs associated with the installation, e.g. anything you have to buy yourself like an antenna, customs/duty fees, etc. You only need supply the Internet connection and perform the installation and ongoing support of the SDR.

As you can see from the map on sdr.hu we are in need of KiwiSDRs in Asia, the Russian Far East, Siberia, the Middle East, North Africa, Central America, Alaska and the Pacific Islands. Not only for better reception of stations heard locally to those areas but for possible future direction-finding experiments.

Please see this post on our website for our email address. Proposals can be from individuals or groups (e.g. radio clubs, etc.) The LISTENER backers will vote for the winning proposals / locations.

      This is the best! I'm looking forward to tuning into these new unique locations! I'm also doing something similar and have been running the Freemans Reach Australia location for the last few months, and now I have two new KiwiSDR's that I will be placing out further afield in areas that particularly interest me. Likely locations for the two new Kiwi's are near Vladivostok and one near Ulan Bator. I hope to have both in place in 2017.
