Ham Encounters SDR Servers

  • Server 1 – sdr://
  • Server 2 – sdr://

NOTE: Each of these servers can accommodate (2) users at the same time.  When more than one user is connected to a single SDR server, you may only be able to tune a small area of the frequency panel, versus the full spectrum.  If this happens, it’s by design (or… software limitation) – simply try to connect to another one of the SDR server(s) or wait a little while for the other user to log off.
