Public servers to choose from

Post by andyrs »

I'm thinking about possibility to add a selection of public servers to the plugin (table w/filters or simple combobox) to choose from. As a bonus - to store favourite servers to a "bookmarks menu" -> .conf file.

I don't think there is an official API for, so this must've been based on processed output from html. On the plus side, there seems to be an option to extract <gps position> from cl-info, so with some calculation, proximity sorting will be possible. In simplest for cl-name,href,cl-users shoud be enough.

What do you think? How would you proceed with this idea?

Yes, looks like one of the other Kiwi web sites just downloads the public html page ( ... com-update). Might be worth asking on the Kiwi forums if they would consider creating a JSON list of receivers. Would be easier for other projects to use.

Rather than create a .conf file, you could probably save the list in KiwiSDRSettings.

We could possibly display the Kiwi servers on the Map feature.
