Power Supply Requirements

New Kiwi owners:

KiwiSDR 2:

    • Unlike KiwiSDR 1 no SD card is supplied. The software is pre-installed and should work out of the box. Also unlike KiwiSDR 1 the first network software update is delayed until the overnight update window (1-5AM local time) so you don't have to wait an extra hour before first use. This assumes the Kiwi has a network connection to the Internet etc.
      KiwiSDR 2 runs Debian 11 (Bullseye).


    • Every KiwiSDR 2 has the proxy service enabled by default. So you can connect using the serial number, e.g. The serial number is found on the printed sheet inside the shipping box. Also written on the bottom of the metal case. On the admin page, connect tab, you may disable this and use whatever connection method you like (e.g. by domain name, IP address, DUC domain etc). You can also change the proxy name from the serial number to a name you choose (assuming it's not already taken).


    • Because the proxy URL is available from anywhere on the Internet the admin page ( must have a default password. This password is written on the printed sheet that is inside the shipping box (four numbers and/or lowercase letters). If necessary email your serial number to [email protected] and we can tell you the password. 
      As soon as possible please change the admin password on the admin page, security tab.


    • KiwiSDR 2 connectors are reversed compared to KiwiSDR 1
      Because the Kiwi board is mounted upside down inside the enclosure (to make access to the Beagle SD card slot easier) the RF IN (antenna) and GPS 3.3V SMA connectors are left/right reversed compared to what you might be used to on KiwiSDR 1. 


  • Customize the details of your Kiwi user interface.
    When you connect to the SDR you will note that default values for the name, location and other details are displayed. You can change these by connecting to the admin page ( and changing the information on the Config and Webpage tabs. If you wish to make your Kiwi publicly accessible then change the settings on the admin Public tab. Changing some of these setting will prompt you to restart.
