Thanks to Alan Boris of Balena.io for submitting their new blog post titled “Running OpenWebRX on balena to remotely monitor local radio spectrum“. Balena.io is an IoT cloud service that is used for “building, deploying, and managing fleets of connected Linux devices”.
In the blog post, they show how it’s possible to use a RTL-SDR and Raspberry Pi running OpenWebRX to remotely monitor the radio spectrum over the internet. This of course has been done many times before, however, the novel thing here is the use of the Balena cloud platform which makes installing and managing the Raspberry Pi running OpenWebRX much easier.
