2.62 has run for over a minute without issues. Logging to disk and realtime log enabled. I'll let it run overnight and see what happens.

If I wanted to run the program a second time for my 436, do I need to install another instance in a different folder, or can I just run this one again? (Could I log with both of them concurrently?)

Ran all night without a hitch.

Care to share what the ultimate solution was?

You can run multiple copies

However to log it to disk is currently just one at a time, however; I can change this and will do so today. Thanks for the idea.

Orginally I was each time I checked the scanner

Loading the library, opening the port, writing data, receiving data, closing the port and unloading the library. For some reason on certain computers with certain drivers after it did this x number of times the driver stopped working.

So I then told it to load the serial library when the program starts and connect to scanner when you hit the connect button and only disconnect when you click the disconnect button, thus the serial port stays open until you close it and things are not open and closed several times in a given time period to avoid the problem.

Not only did this fix your problem but it also fixed mrkelsos problem of it running slow on the mac when it was doing the opening and closing.

Normally when you program you load it, use it and unload when done it to save memory and resources.

Fortunately a com port uses very little resources so you can leave it open...

Seems to be working fine on HP1 / Win 8.1.

Can you add UNID? (unless I'm missing it). Currently use Butels's Arc to log and track down UNID.

I believe unit ID has been mentioned previously - it's not in the data that he's currently pulling, but is looking at being added.

Now that things are working, I have it set up on my laptop keeping track of my 436 here at work. Got a couple of observations.

1 - On my local Motorola Type II multi-site system, the real time log displays the site name in the "System" column. I haven't looked at the "Raw Data" window while it was receiving on that system, but I'll keep an eye on it. If both the system and site are present, perhaps that column could be "System - Site" similar to how Uniden concatenates the county and agency into the "Department" line.

EDIT: The GLG command appears not to have the system name in it. Interesting. Not a horrible problem since I know what system it is (the only trunk I'm monitoring).

2 - Does the date/time (at the top of the window) flicker once per second for anyone else? Almost as if the line was being erased before being redrawn.

I don't mean to seem like I'm complaining - this is a great program, especially since you have the HP1 issue worked out. I don't think there's been any consistently updated HP1 tools "on the market" per se.

>>UID will be added as soon as uniden adds the full set of RMT commands to the 436 and 536. (maybe sooner for the HP-1 as it provides it)

Worked like a charm!

GLG actually delivers the site name in place of the system name when receiving a transmission, at least on a multi-site Motorola system. That could be a bug in Uniden's logic.

What would be the Icing on the cake would be to have a hit counter so instead of drawing a new row for the same unit over and over again, just show another hit if the unit transmits again and show the hit in the log.

Or how it's entered in the rr data base

No; the site name "Forest Lawn" is entered correctly in the database, and shows up in the "System" column (and in the GLG command), where the system name "Calgary Digital Radio" is expected to be.

I would just have to be careful in how long it takes to find duplicate remove it from stack then insert it in first position.
