After some tinkering and configuration, we now have our sdr publicly available. If all goes well and the system doesn't get abused, it will stay online permanently. It was built using openwebrx and is running on a raspberry pi using 2 nooelec smartsdr. The VHF/UHF receiver is attached to a simple mag mount antenna temporarily until its new permanent home is found. The HF receiver is attached to a active loop antenna. There is currently a lot of smps noise as the pi's and sdr are in the server rack. The noise issue is being worked on.
The noise source has been found! Not only are the smps causing noise but its the damn powerline ethernet devices I use. Work is under way to deal with this issue but for now the noise will persist as the powerline ethernet device serve a critical function to the network.
