Langkah yang perlu di lakukan

  • Raspberri pi dengan Rasbian
  • RTL-SDR Dongles (RTL2832U)

Install aplikasi

sudo su
sudo apt -y install build-essential cmake libfftw3-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev curl libcurl4-gnutls-dev ntp ntpdate git

Install librtlsdr


cd /usr/local/src
git clone
cd /usr/local/src/librtlsdr
mkdir build
cd build
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig

Install rtlsdr-wsprd


cd /usr/local/src
git clone
cd /usr/local/src/rtlsdr-wsprd

Setup ntp

crontab -e
*/15 * * * * /usr/sbin/ntpdate


cd /usr/local/src/rtlsdr-wsprd/
Use:	rtlsdr_wsprd -f frequency -c callsign -l locator [options]
	-f dial frequency [(,k,M) Hz], check for freq.
	-c your callsign (12 chars max)
	-l your locator grid (6 chars max)
Receiver extra options:
	-g gain [0-49] (default: 29)
	-a auto gain (default: off)
	-o frequency offset (default: 0)
	-p crystal correction factor (ppm) (default: 0)
	-u upconverter (default: 0, example: 125M)
	-d direct dampling [0,1,2] (default: 0, 1 for I input, 2 for Q input)
	-n max iterations (default: 0 = infinite loop)
	-i device index (in case of multiple receivers, default: 0)
Decoder extra options:
	-H use the hash table (could caught signal 11 on RPi)
	-Q quick mode, doesn't dig deep for weak signals
	-S single pass mode, no subtraction (same as original wsprd)
	rtlsdr_wsprd -f 144.489M -c A1XYZ -l AB12cd -g 29 -o -4200

Problem USB Port

Rasberian to use with a Raspberry PI I noticed some disconnection problems with USB port while using Raspbian Jessie (2016-05-27-raspbian-jessie-lite.img). I rollbacked to Raspbian Wheezy (2015-02-16-raspbian-wheezy.img) and the problems solved by themself magically... For now, I have not investigated this issue, but if you experience some "Caught signal 11" error message, it could be this same problem. For now, I would recommend Raspbian Wheezy v2015-02-16.
