Web SDR can be very attractive because of monitoring some bands. The University of Eindhoven has two receivers online with the following bands: 80 m, 40 m, 6 m, 4 m and 2 meter. I can check easily if there is any propagation on e.g. 6 meter. I don’t have to search myself, just in one view I check the waterfall of the web SDR. I compared my antenna and receiver with the receiver and antenna of the University of Eindhoven, using WSPR on 40 meter. A good station to watch is DL6NL which is transmitting on 40 meter with 50 mW. I was using an end fed wire as sloper, and the University of Eindhoven a multiband vertical. Eindhoven received him with -23 dB. I received him with -24 dB. I live 100 km further away than Eindhoven. Conclusion: my receiving capability is OK with the end fed wire for 40 meter.


  1. Good morning Paul, I have not used Web SDR and what you have done with it is of great use for sure. I have PowerSDR setup at home and that too is great for seeing across a whole band to see what is going on out there. I also find it great for contests as well. Makes search and pounce much easier.

  2. I love Web SDR! I'll be receiving a SoftRock kit in October and I hope to get a server set up here in Costa Rica.

  3. WebSDR en SDR in het algemeen is de toekomst denk ik Paul. Ik houd het in de gaten. 73, Bas
