I am using smart SDR iOS on both my iphone 6 Plus and my iPad Pro. I operate both over 4g via a VPN into my home network or over wifi from within my home network.
I understand that the amount of audio buffer is limited by the acceptable latency and occassional pops and minor short drop outs are tolerated when on 4g network with framerate etc turned down to work accepatably with my rather poor 1mb/sec upload speed.
However when operating on my home wifi I get larger audio glitches usually as a set of 3 I guess about 500ms long and 500 ms apart resulting in lost/very broken audio over a couple of seconds. It occurs every 5 mins or so. I am using higher bandwidth at home but I also have a fast wifi homenetwork but these longer ryhmic glitches dont occurr on 4g. It occurs on both 2.4 and 5 ghz networks.
I put it down to other network traffic so disabled everything else on network and the problem still persisted. If I go into the wifi setup menu the exact same glitch occurs as it searches/scans for available networks to populate the available wifi networks list
I therefore presume that the iOS device must whatever you are doing on the device periodically check the available networks present, which is how I presume it will move from one to another of my access points if it sees a stronger signal.
Has anybody else observed the same problem which can be tolerated unless your mid QSO and is there any way known to stop the iOS device periodically scanning the wiFi networks.
Many Thanks Andy M5ZAP
