Share your receiver
GlobalTuners allows you to share your radio receiver with other radio enthusiasts. Sharing your receiver is fun and grants you immediate access to the Premium membership features. The GlobalTuners software, which is developed specifically for GlobalTuners and is owned by us, is easy to setup and requires little maintenance. Our user database allows us to easily deal with abuse. We are always open to suggestions and experiments which may improve the website and software.
Before you begin, please make sure you have the necessary equipment to share a receiver. The following sections will give some information about the required hardware.
The GlobalTuners URadioServer software can run on almost any computer, including embedded platforms like the Raspberry Pi. We recommend at least an 1GHz processor, 256MB RAM and 2GB of free harddisk space.
For SDR receivers, we recommend to use a computer with an Intel Core2-series or i-series processor or similar AMD processor.
The computer system must also have appropriate connections for the receiver's control and audio connections. Most receivers require a 9-pin RS232 serial port and a soundcard with line-in connection. Some receivers (RTL2832-SDR, ICOM PCR-1500) need only a single USB connection. Please make sure you have the necessary cabling to connect the receiver to the computer.
We support a wide variety of receivers. You can find the complete list in the next step of the registration.
- Icom PCR-100, PCR-1000, PCR-1500
- Most other Icom transceivers and receivers with a RS232 or CI-V serial interface (IC-706, R8000, etc)
- AOR AR-7030, AR-8020, AR-8600
- JRC NRD525, NRD545
- Yaesu FT-817, VR5000, FRG-9600, ...
The GlobalTuners RadioServer software works with almost any commonly available internet connection. We have technologies in place to minimize bandwidth usage and to work around firewalls without special configuration.
