• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Not the most successful, despite using the program to read the instructions
The previous version DSDPlus1p074
I could hear sounds well and was able to decode clearly DMR
- I try to run the program by taking advantage of the discriminator and what I care about is the voice signal decoding DMR
Any tips or settings before you will be appreciated
Thank you and respect

Really not sure what you are asking.... doesn't work with discriminator audio? Or 1.080 isn't working for you? Or both?

Thank you respond and attention
The new version works DSDPlus1p080 Fast but not efficiently release DSDPlus1p074
I no longer hear the voices are clear on the same previous channels that you listen to it on the issue DSDPlus1p074
- I wonder if the new release Fast Line had improved signal decoding DMR?
- Or I'm not the best use of the new program to make it work well
Any advice would be appreciated and thank you

I think he's saying decode seems to be degraded in newer versions.

I noticed this as well with 1.74 vs earlier versions. (P25)

Had to really play around a bit to get it back to nearly as good as before.

Is there any progress on reducing the 'compressed' nature of the recovered audio in DSDplus?

I note that the P25 audio (can't comment on other digital modes, since I don't have any other local systems to monitor) sounds highly compressed compared to audio from a Uniden or GRE scanner.
For example, background/ambient noise that is barely audible on the hardware radios, is virtually the same level as the voice in DSDplus. It does make long term monitoring a bit arduous.

Anyway, I do appreciate the work you guys are putting into this project.

I'm loving the logging capabilities of v1.074 :)

Hi Guys,

Just to let you know that I submitted the payment and I am using a gmail account as mentioned from PayPal. I hope GMail does not cause issues.

From the 1.090 Notes.txt:

Control of AMBE and IMBE unvoiced audio levels has been added

-UA<num> AMBE unvoiced speech level (0-100) [-UA50]
-UI<num> IMBE unvoiced speech level (0-100) [-UI50]

pressing 'A'/'a'/'I'/'i' will also adjust the levels;
lower levels may reduce the "underwater" sound of some comms



Did some A/B testing and lower values definitely reduce the level of background sounds.
