We have a 30 user limit now. If u are not able to access, refresh window.

Current Hardware is a LinuxMint server with VUSDR from Dr Naidu. Antenna is an Inverted V at ~45m MSL
Currently this is in the testing mode and we are planning to add more bands and spectrum later.

Chrome browser is working with android perfectly, iOs Safari will work only on mobile mode of site and also needed to be enabled "iOS audio start" button which comes near to the Waterfall

Linux/Windows users: Select HTML5 and if audio wont come up. Check whether the audio device is busy on playing music or some audio application.
