I run the WEB SDR IO group which is primarily aimed at WEB SDR admin's and owners with the aim of sharing experiences and technical expertise relating to operation and running of WEB SDR's
I also operate a number of public KiWi WEB SDR's which cover the 0-32MHz frequency range
Unfortunately our popular SW, VHF, UHF & Microwave WEB SDR at Farnham has had to close down due to a change of site ownership.
The search for a new location continues.
