• 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:

Thanks very much for your time and efforts. Starts right up and works. Looking forward to digging into the more advanced features and considering the Fast Lane as it develops.

Timing is everything I suppose... just figured I'd check in this morning and voila, a new "toy" to play with for a bit.

Working great so far doing some basic DMR monitoring this morning of some casinos in town - housekeeping departments are all over the place as expected. ;)

Bug found??
In v1.051 when you close the 'Channel Activity' window, it will close.
In v1.071 when you close the 'Channel Activity' window, the program closes down.

Bug #2

1) When I start the program, it will not show NXDN Alias on the voice channels in the Event Window
2) When I look at the control channel, it will see the alias that is transmitted on the control channel in the Event Window.
3) When I go back to voice channels, now alias's are showing in the Event Window.

Now most of the NXDN traffic i have is Encrypted and the above steps corrects the alias until an un-encrypted talkgroup come on and then the 'Event Window' stops showing 'alias' again just a few transmissions later.
Have to repeat steps 1-3 to make it start showing up once more.

No NEXEDGE aliases at all here. If there is some command to enable it now I can't find it.
Same here it's not working in this build.
Try what I found in Bug #2 and see if that fixes yours, just curious.

I don't know what you mean by "looking" at control and voice channels. I tried clicking, minimizing and restoring all windows and that didn't do anything.

All the NEXEDGE repeaters here are conventional so there is no control channel.

I'm also seeing pretty much the same behavior regarding alias info as described in post #12. I started on a NEXEDGE48 CC, then learned how to use the scan feature of FMP. When I started scanning with it I started seeing alias info on all system channels.

Great great job on FMP, what a nifty addition!

Sorry Ronnie and ND5Y, i have trunk systems here where i live.

Bug #2

1) When I start the program, it will not show NXDN Alias on the voice channels in the Event Window
2) When I look at the control channel, it will see the alias that is transmitted on the control channel in the Event Window.
3) When I go back to voice channels, now alias's are showing in the Event Window.
(update) Watching this more, doesn't matter if it's encrypted or not. After a period of time, it will revert back to not showing alias. Seem to be around 5 minutes plus or minus a minute from what I am seeing

I downloaded and installed the program without a problem. The problem I do have is that when I press ESC to close the program to reconfigure the audio input and output, the window closes. How do I get that window to stay open? I don't recall what, if anything, I did for the previous version.


Ignore the above. I figured out that I had to edit the DOS window I created to point to the correct Directory.

Once I did that, it started fine and I dialed in a three channel trunk site (MotoTrbo) that has the three channels adjacent to each other. I can see activity on all three at one time, which makes jumping around easy.

Can someone tell me where the records are saved? I assume it's a text file, but I'm not sure where.

I also saw a notation that auto muting was enabled because of an encrypted TG. I didn't catch the TG number.

And of course I have to figure out what to do with aliases. Time to read the help file.

Good work by the developers, thanks.

what does "FMP" stand for. Again, thanks much.

From the folder of DSDPlus:

FMP.txt

FMP is a simple DVB-T dongle tuner / NFM demodulator. It samples at 1 MHz,
so its spectrum display spans 1 MHz of the RF spectrum. FMP is designed for
low power devices like low end netbooks where CPU and screen resources are
limited.
