New kiwiSDR Update
« on: December 26, 2019, 0745 UTC »
Looks like the rolled out some system updates to kiwiSDR in the last 18 hours recently. I like the possibility of synchronous AM coming but I also really liked the AM Narrow option being readily available though. This is not rolled out to all kiwi nodes, only some right now. I came across this on the OK2KYJ SDR in Czechia.

Do people use DRM that much that it will be on the "front panel" (it has been available under extensions for a while now)?

The narrow AM and narrow CW options are still there, though it took me a little while to find them.

Click on either the AM or CW button to select that mode.  Now click again on the same button to toggle between normal and narrow bandwidth.

Good to hear that SAM (Sync AM) is finally on the way to KiwiSDR in an upcoming release!

FWIW I have disabled DRM on my KiwiSDR.

Me, too, since it requires exclusive use of the receiver. Another reason to not like DRM. ;)

It reduces the number of receivers available on a KiwiSDR.

The DRM mode is disabled if the receiver is in the 20 kHz mode.
