• 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:

Hi, can anyone post what exactly is the information that is displayed in the DSD Plus 1.101 Console window? I know some of the basic information, but is there an actual list as to what is displayed in each column? Especially as to what values are usable for decode and what values are classed as errors.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Brian

Hi Mike,

Many thanks for taking the time to reply! What I was more interested in (and probably phrased it badly in my question) was when DSD+ 1.101 is running and actively decoding DMR for instance, I was just wondering what exactly is the information that scrolls in the Console Window and and can I utilise that information to enhance my use of DSD+ 1.101?

Once again I do appreciate the help,

Regards,

Brian

Hi, Thanks for that.

Yes, this is the active Console window that I'm talking about, but unfortunately some of the information in the script is unclear to me. Such as in your instance, Slots are self explanatory, as are the DCC for Colour Codes, BS for Base Stations and TG for Talk Groups, but what about the other heading such as CSBKO, FID, v16, id1 and id2? Its these, and other such data abbreviations that I cannot find any description for! Is there any listing that gives a breakdown of these abbreviations formats?

Much appreciated,

Brian

No, I doubt you'll find a listing anywhere.

CSBKO is something like control signaling block opcode, i.e. the message type.

FID = feature ID; IIRC, 16 means Motorola.

v16, id1 and id2: these are portions of the message and sometimes hold talkgroup or radio ID values.

Thanks Slicerwizard for the info.

I guess trial and error and "working-it-out-as-you-go-along" is the rule?

Thanks to all who replied to my query,

Brian
