File limits - upload - thinking of uploading a chunk of RF?

      I'm not sure if this is done or if anybody would be interested.
      For a test I saved a short bit of 40M SoftRock lite audio at 192khz from HDSDR then 7-zipped it to a reasonable size, I was wondering what sort of file limit there is on upload to "Files" here or if a "Chunk" would be of interest to those poking deeper into what comes out of the things.
      Uncompressed and opened in HDSDR you can obviously use it like a short snapshot to look around the band (or the part available to me)

      Is anyone doing that? RF sharing I'll do you a minute of UK 40M in return for.... Joking obviously, that would be so nerdy.

        One of the file-sharing sites may be a possibility, some can be used for
        free but I don't know anything else.
        Or you can put your radio directly on the net with SDR-Radio. I did that for
        a while but SDR-Radio only gives the hardware image rejection and it shows
        Softrocks in a bad way.

        OK understood that wouldn t be a good idea then, I might just try it somewhere else and provide a link if someone wants it. Will see if I can pick a good time

          Will see if I can pick a good time to take some snapshots.

          I did think about connecting to the net or similar but figured I didn't want to use the upload bandwidth (pretty restricted in my part of the UK)
          I just wanted to see if what I get is about right for the course, I'm less keen on obscure tests than real world results.
          To be honest I'm blown away by the simple hardware when compared to the second hand Flex 1500 I'm also trying.

          Cheers

            Stu,

            Speed is unlikely to be an issue, about 14kbs, less than 2KBs is only just
            more than the old dial-up. It is just compressed audio and very low-res
            video, all the processing is done remotely.
            You can easily try others out there and configuring your router is the most
            difficult thing when setting up your server.
            Yes, there are certain limitations with a Softrock but they do perform
            remarkably well.

              Leaving a MS box running and in anyway accessible to the internet conflicts heavily with my day job so if I did try it would be a single use stand alone PC firewalled from anything I value.
              The Linux server mentioned before may be something I'll look into longer term but my only decent sound card is not well supported (kernel patches aside).
              SDR-Radio is limited I believe to 96khz so again not quite what I was hoping to achieve.
              I'm going to have to get the IF kit for my old FT-102 that would be two era's meeting, just need to address some relays first..

                  Spent a day doing a clean install of Win7 (+Office 2007) on a laptop even with SP1 on DVD must have been few hundred patches and what seemed like twenty reboots, couldn't even "set it going and come back later".
                  Same day spent few minutes putting Lubuntu on someone's old personal laptop and they were fully updated checking mail before the MS box had done a fraction of it's install/update.

                    I've been using Linux as my only OS for home and work use since around Windows 95/98. Found it made me more productive than using Windows or Solaris as I could deal with multiple partitions on SPARC Enterprise servers like the Sun E10K and the Fujitsu Primepower series without having to log off one partition and on to another. All my mainframe work, plus Citrix Linux client, Cisco VPN Linux client, even Lotus Notes mail under wine and StarOffice for expense spreadsheets allowed me to stay Linux only with almost all our corporate systems frontends Windows based.

                    I hadn't dug that deeply in SDR-Radio, will give it a go from work as test.
                    Leaving a MS box running and in anyway accessible to the internet conflicts heavily with my day job so if I did try it would be a single use stand alone PC firewalled from anything I value.
                    The Linux server mentioned before may be something I'll look into longer term but my only decent sound card is not well supported (kernel patches aside).
                    SDR-Radio is limited I believe to 96khz so again not quite what I was hoping to achieve.
                    I'm going to have to get the IF kit for my old FT-102 that would be two era's meeting, just need to address some relays first..


                    Out of curiosity, what sound card is it?
                    I had been using a E-MU0404 USB card for years for guitar work and when I got my first Softrock I used it for I-Q, all the time alsa-project said it was unsupported.
