WebSDR === Maasbree === operating on 80m, 60m, 40m, 30m and 20m band (offline during local thunderstorms)
For more info goto: background and technical info, FAQ and Downloads
• Dec. 19: Problem with Firefox update solved. Chrome, Edge and Firefox don't need the shift key anymore for frequency scrolling on the frequency scale.
Solved it in cooparation with Bas ON5HB and Clint KA7OEI (Utah WebSDR) and by looking in the code of the WebSDR Twente.
• Jan. 19: The waterfall brightness is equalized over all bands (no change in S-meter reading).
On 80m/40m/20m (RSP1a receivers): noise shaping now lowers the quantization noise by 8dB (was 4dB). The noise shaped outside the band is masked.
• April 15: Running WSPR on 80m, 40m and 20m using the call PH4RTM (see Manual).
Thanks Bas ON5HB for the cooperation and especially PA3FWM for making it possible with the WebSDR software.
• Dec. 3: Exploited noise shaping further.
On 80m the quantization noise is reduced by 11dB. On 40m and 20m it is reduced by 18dB.
As a result the effective number of bits to the websdr is now 9.83 bit on 80m and 11 bit on 40m and 20m.
20m now runs on 1024kHz enabling a 460kHz bandwidth for full coverage of the band. We are testing 1024kHz for stable operation.

• Dec. 21: A new noise blanker is now in test on 80m. It is programmed in GNUradio and operates between de RSP1a driver and WebSDR software.
• Dec. 25: Starting this morning the dynDNS link to the WebSDR seems to have some problems. For the moment use http://184.108.40.206:8901/ instead.
• Dec. 27: Somehow we lost our dynDNS domain name on Christmas Day (not a good day for that).
• Dec. 29: A new domain name is now in use for the Maasbree WebSDR. The new links are:
hf.websdrmaasbree.nl or sdr.websdrmaasbree.nl:8901
2m.websdrmaasbree.nl or sdr.websdrmaasbree.nl:8905
Our info site:
www.websdrmaasbree.nl or websdrmaasbree.nl
Operators are Loek PE0MJX and Jan PA0SIM.
It is located in Maasbree JO31AI (QTH PH4RTM), intended as an alternative for HAMs having a high local man-made noise level.
The Maasbree location is quiet with on 20m a better than rural noise level. With now and then a weak local noise source.
Koos PA0KDF has done measurements with calibrated equipment and antennas: IEEE article
Receivers: three SDRplay RSP1a receivers for the 80m/40m/20m bands and two FiFi SDR receivers with sound cards for the 60m/30m band.
Antenna: a small broadband active loop antenna: Active broadband loop antenna
Gain in the WebSDR is set for an equivalent antenna factor AF=0.35 on all bands.
Note 1 Firefox is the preferred browser.
Code from the Utah WebSDR (tks!) is added for support of Chrome, Apple, etc.
Go to this Utah site for more info if needed.
Note 2 If you have a mobile phone, try this one: ==> Mobile version <==
Note 3 CATSync allows you to synchronize the WebSDR with your real rig.
Frequency can be set by:
- Preset buttons
- Clicking/dragging/scrollwheel on frequency scale
- Direct input in frequency field
- Fine tuning in +/-10Hz steps (or select up or down 10Hz button and use enter key or spacebar)
- Keyboard shortcuts !
- Band selection buttons
- Click on memory labels in waterfall
- Bookmarks e.g.: http://hf.websdrmaasbree.nl/?tune=3558cw
- CATSync and your own transceiver
CW pitch can be set by e.g. the shift buttons.
Keyboard shortcuts (tick Allow keyboard):
j k ← →: freq down/up (+shift or +ctrl/alt)
b B: band up/down
u l c a f: USB/LSB/CW/AM/FM
z Z: center/zoom waterfall
g: enter frequency
m, s, n: toggle mute, squelch, notch
WebSDR is a very strong concept developed by PA3FWM!
