And I'll add that that method works well. Thank's for adding the RTL-SDR, Rick!

Try as I might, I can't get past this error when using the plugin for SDR#:

"Error loading 'SDRSharp.Trunker.TrunkerPlugin,SDRSharp.Trunker' - Could not load type 'SDRSharp.Radio.IAdudioProcessor' from assembly 'SDRSharp.Radio, Version=0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'."

I've tried older (and newer) versions of SDR# and unitrunker, to no avail. Remote.dll seems to be doing it's job on the Unitrunker side, but the SDR# plugin doesn't seem to load. Any ideas?

I don't know what the current status of the plugin with the latest SDR#. There were several versions floating around by Bob Rich, Zefie, and at least one other.

If your RTL device has an R820T tuner chip inside, you can configure the device as a voice receiver directly in Unitrunker. The display isn't nearly as pretty to look at (no waterfall) but uses less resources.

Apologies if this has been established already..But is anyone aware of the last version of SDR# that the ZEFIE plugin worked with?..
Any info on an updated version in the works?

That error message is an indication that you're using an older version of TrunkerPlugin.dll file that is incompatible with the newer versions(>1179) of SDR#. Use this dll file.. here

I just tried the plugin with the latest SDR# ver 1317 and it loads just fine.

Also, make sure you're editing the Plugins.xml file rather than the SDRSharp.exe.Config file.

Default Error Loading

Also, it's probably a unitracker problem more than yours, but in the setup instructions "http://public-xrp.s3.amazonaws.com/docs/sdrsharptrunk.htm" it says to have "debug" as the model for the control received, but it is not listed. Do I just type in Debug?

Thanks!

Click the "+" tool button. You'll see a pop-up asking what category of receiver you want to create. One of the choices there is "Debug".

What more can I say...this is amazing, Thank you for all the work and time to produce this application.

I am now running the latest version with SDR running in native mode. I really like the two audio outputs.
Everything is fine except that I can't get digital audio piped to DSD for some reason. But no problem, I will figure it out this weekend.

Just wanted to say thanks.

Mike

There is a lot of information to digest in this and other related conversations. For piping audio to DSD and other decoders, you need a program like Virtual Audio Cable to do that. Not saying you didn't know that, but the point could have been missed in all of the other details.

David,
Thanks for the info,

I have VAC and had some time to check out my install. It is now working fine, the digital audio is going to DSD+ and decoding very well.
Just had to go over some of the settings in Unitrunker and that did the trick.
I am using an old Radio Shack scanner with a tap for control channel output to Unitrunker.
I have also used a second SDR module for discriminator input and it works well too.

I have two sound cards in my computer. With DSD+ and Unitrunker having selectable audio inputs and outputs, I have the ultimate flexibility in audio handling.
Mike, VE3HRT

Ok, call me stupid, but I'm having trouble getting this plugin to work.

I've copied the .DLL file over to the SDRSharp folder, but this is where I get hung up:

Quote:
4) Open SDRSharp.exe.Config and find the line "<sharpPlugins>"

5) After the line "<sharpPlugins>", but before "</sharpPlugins>", add this line:
<add key="Trunker" value="SDRSharp.Trunker.TrunkerPlugin, SDRSharp.Trunker" />
In my SDRSharp.exe.Config file, there's no section called <sharpPlugins>

There is however a section called <frontendPlugins> with some lines that look like the one above, so I stuck it in there.

Running the application however gives me an error message saying "Error loading SDRSharp.Trunker.Trunkerplugin, SDRSharp.Trunker" etc...

Any tips would be great. Thanks.

The instructions you followed are out of date, remove the line you added to the Config file and place it in the Plugins XML fie.

Plugins.xml is another file I don't have.

This is the guide I've been following: SDRSharp UniTrunker Support
Also been looking at this one? https://sites.google.com/site/policescannerhowto/

Are those totally out of date? Is there a newer one I should be looking at?

Cheers.

SDRSharp itself is updated practically every day. You probably need to download and install a more current version.

Default Logfile of Frequency, Time, and Signal Strength

Is this plugin capable of configuration to create a live running logfile of frequency, time, and signal strength, preferably in a .csv format. I want to scan a scan a block of the spectrum and then go back later and conduct statistical analysis on the log data. Does anyone know if this is even possible without delving into GNURadio Companion?

Thanks!

The trunking plug-in does not scan. However, there are other plug-ins that may do what you want.

Angry Install Issue with SDRSharpTrunker

Zefie,
Having some difficulty installing SDRSharpTrunker in SDRSharp. I have the following installed on disk:
SDRSharp v 1.0.0.1326
Unitrunker v 1.0.29.5
SDRTrunker v 1.2013.429.10
C++ Redistr v 2012.1 x86

The How-To-Install.txt file tells me to edit SDRSharp.exe.config and add the <Add key ...> line between <sharpPlugins> and <\sharpPlugins> markers. There are no such markers. I added the line just above the FreqMgr + scanner < add keys > but it didn't work. I then added it to the end of the of the Plugins.xml file. SDRSharp recognizes the trunker but I get the following error msg when I try to start SDRSharp:

" Error loading SDRTrunker. SDRSharp.Trunker - Could not load type SDRSharp.Radio.IAudioProcessor' , from assembly SDRSharp.Radio,version = 0.0.0.0, ... "

Does this mean SDRSharpTrunker must have Unitrunker installed as a plugin to SDRSharp? I have no clue how to do that. SDRSharp nstallation instructions for Unitrunker do not exist that I know of. It just comes with a Microsoft .msi installer that puts it the directory of your choice.

Any help would be appreciated.

I got the same error on SDRSharp Rev 1324 so I just gave up and used Unitrunker...but if you want, try it with older version(s) of SDRSharp as the plugin we're trying to use is really for Rev. 1133 or older...

DK327,

I saw elsewhere that SDRSharpTrunker needed an updated SDRSharpTrunker.DLL that is part of the newer version so I installed that version and it loaded ok but it crashes my system. I think I'm going to cut-bait for now. Not worth the blue screens.

Anyway, thanks for the reply.
