I seem to have developed a problem where my long tones are being decoded but the "Detection Output" window just shows "Paged Received" with no further action or email sent but the audio is being recorded and saved in the Audio folder with just a date and time stamp.

Anybody have any ideas what might cause this issue?

Only long tones or any tone set not getting email sent? Check tones.txt file and all correct info there? Are you running anything new from command line that may be doing anything with the files that are not getting emailed? I had an issue recently when manipulating files with a batch file that caused emails to fail, possibly due to the batch file locking the file while it copied it to a different directory.

Good Luck,
Rich

It is only the long tones that aren't getting sent but yet the txt file looks fine and everything is populating fine in the various fields in the software. Nothing is running from the command line so no issues there.

I am wondering if I just have too many entries in the tones.txt file as it is serving 3 different departments. I may split the long and short tones between two instances of the software and see how that works.

Well I switched my long tones to a separate instance of the software and it seems to have fixed things. The only issue now is I have two long tones for separate departments on different frequencies that are 6hz apart. One uses 646hz and the other uses 652hz and of course the software is falsing. I don't want to adjust the tolerance for fear of breaking all the paging. Anybody else have success with tones this close together decoding properly or do I need to branch them off onto another machine with a separate receiver?

How many entries do you have in the tones.txt file? Glad to see the post that you figured it out I'm just curious how many you have, I only have 8 two tone and 3 long tone entries.

3 fire departments with 51 tones?!?!? How long does it take to dispatch a call?

These are all rural departments with only 1 tone set per department so not long at all.

I was wondering if anyone has had any luck sending pages to an Alltel cell phone? On our department (i'm sure as on most) we have a mix of different carriers people use and those with US Cellular phones receive the page just fine, but for some reason it seems as Alltel is blocking the emails, yet I get now message undeliverable?

Any thoughts? Ideas?

I too have this same problem. I've even tried sending it to Gmail and then having Gmail forward it to my phone and that didn't work either. No idea why it won't work..its something to do with the attachment part of it.

I've started forwarding my TwoToneDetect audio alerts for Toledo FD, Oregon/Jerusalem Twp FDs and Lucas County EMS to Posterous (and Twitter):

ToledoOhFire's posterous - Toledo Ohio Fire Alert Pages Toledo Ohio Fire (ToledoOhFire) on Twitter
OregonOhFire's posterous - Oregon Ohio Fire Alert Pages Oregon Ohio Fire (OregonOhFire) on Twitter
LucasCoEMS's posterous - Lucas County EMS Alert Pages Lucas County EMS (LucasCoEMS) on Twitter

I still need to do some tone tweaking and cleanup, as I've moved a few things around with my TTD setup. But this Posterous solution is indeed a great distribution method.

The P25 audio sounds great! I`am guessing the main dispatched frequency is patched to a TG on the Trunk system?

Instant. If the email is in your inbox then it will also be on Posterous.

Likely not yet until I perfect the three I've got setup now. I may try to do something with adding TTD to my analog Fire feed that could decode everything else. But need to do some computer work and more planning regarding adding tone sets for many different agencies. Also I don't get that great reception from Sylvania on UHF and would be best to have a dedicated radio for a one or a handful of departments.

It would be easier to listen for Life Squad 6 dispatches in the mean time (EMS actually needs to have some tone sets fixed, LS6 is coming up for LS5, I am currently re-evaluating what I have, and I also think I need that radio on a better antenna to hear alerts from the western part of the county.)

The Toledo FD alert audio is from a BCD396T scanning the Lucas County P25 digital system. I've set the radio to scan the Alerting, Dispatch and All-Call talk groups. TwoToneDetect does a good job as decoding on the 1000 Hz constant Alert tone that is used for all basic runs. It will also do a decent job on decoding the 1000 Hz beeping Announcement tone that is used for routine announcements and station alerting tests.

I have yet to find a good way however to decode the two tone Hi Lo warble Alarm alert this is used for regular alarm dispatches (structure fire, hazmat, water rescue type assignments). Ideally I would most like to capture these dispatches, curious if folks here have any ideas. The 1500 Hz / 800 Hz warble alternates back and forth, I've tried a handful of tone combinations in an attempt to capture, but the tones do not last as long as a normal A/B style tone. It's almost like we'd need a custom tone setting defined in TwoToneDetect for this situation, or an option to override the standard tone lengths for a particular tone set to capture these more rapidly alternating tone patterns.

If I can get the alarm tones working with Toledo, then I'd just need to work on merging the specific station call alerting data from the control channel information with this audio alert data to complete the picture. Right now the station information is captured and logged via Pro96Com--shouldn't be too hard to put two together based on time stamps.

Default Input Needed

Keep in mind that I'm not promising anything by asking this.

Hypothetically, if I were to rip out the guts of the program to try to allow stacked page detection, how many stacked pages would you want the program to be able to detect and handle? Five, ten, more? Keep in mind that the lower the number is, the more likely I'll actually be able to implement it IF I decide to do it.
