Default DSDPlus 2.71 Released for Christmas

Well the new version of DSDPlus was released tonight for Christmas!

Still no P25 Phase 2!

The rest of it looks amazing you may need to find a new .dll file if you do not have it installed. I will supply a link to the .dll at the bottom of the post.

NOTES:


DSD+ 2.71
---------



Setup
-----


The DSD+ 2.71 files should be copied to an existing DSD+ 1.101 or higher folder.

If you do not have a DSD+ folder set up yet, go to DSDPlus.com and download
the most recent public version of DSD+ (currently 1.101) and unzip all of the
files to a folder on your PC. We recommend using C:\DSDPlus

This text file describes any additional features that have been added to DSD+
and its supporting programs since the 1.101 public release.



DSD+ 2.71 New Features
----------------------

Protocol-specific changes:

Fusion:

Added link control decoding.

Added full rate voice synthesis.

Added support for per-call recording (-Pwav/-Pmp3)

D-Star:

Added link control decoding.

Added text message decoding.

Added GPS message decoding; GPS coordinates are passed to LRRP.exe and FMP-Map.exe

Added support for per-call recording (-Pwav/-Pmp3)

NXDN:

More NXDN sync patterns are now decoded.

More iDAS and NEXEDGE messages are decoded.

Nonzero voice scramble KIDs are reported (previous versions did not display scramble KIDs)

DMR:

Better decoding of weak RAS signals.

More LRRP messages are now decoded.

More data messages are now decoded.

Linked Cap+ neighbors are now reported.

Handling of Con+ repeater map broadcasts has been automated;
DSD+ will tune VC FMPA/FMP24 to a traffic channel that is broadcasting a repeater map.
Repeater maps broadcast on the control channel carrier (on slot 2) are handled by CC DSD+.
Repeater maps are written to text files.
The file name format is "ConP <NID> Network Repeater Map v<mapVersion>.txt"

More TIII messages are now decoded.

Changed handling of CapMax network IDs and site numbers.

P25:

Better handling of decoding errors; this reduces the number of channel window resets.

More P25 messages are now decoded.

Decoding of neighbor network bandplans has been added.

Updated the handling of neighbour network sites in P25 neighbor lists.

Decoding of Harris patch/simulselect data has been added.

Other changes:

Stability improvements.

Startup collisions eliminated;
Multiple copies of DSD+ can be started simultaneously, no delays required.

Added command line option: -p- Disable auto polarity detection;
Useful for .WAV file playback of some problematic signals, mainly DMR simplex.
Combine with -p to manually handle inverted signals.

Clicking on the close 'X' in the console window now triggers a clean program termination.

Added .groups/.radios file data protection;
If DSD+ can't read these files, for example, if they are locked by some other program,
perhaps a text editor, DSD+ will not write to these files, as DSD+ would not have
the bulk of the data and would write nearly empty files.

Added clear all group lockouts protection;
Clearing all group lockouts now requires two left clicks on the channel headings.

Modified Voice call start alert;
Press 'V' to cycle alerting mode:

no alerts

alert on clear calls only

alert on encrypted calls only

alert on all calls

Modified -e and 'E' handling;
If the user specifies that encrypted traffic should be muted, DSD+ will temporarily
lock out encrypted trunked P25 calls and will not tune VC FMPA/FMP24 to the calls.
On P25 systems with some encrypted groups, it is no longer necessary to lock out
all encrypted groups; just use -e on the command line or press 'E' to lock out all
encrypted calls.
This also enables monitoring of talkgroups that have a mix of clear and encrypted traffic.

Added private call priority control.
When right/left clicking on a voice call's priority field in the channel activity window:

Group calls: clicking priority number adjusts talkgroup priority up or down

Private calls: clicking priority number adjusts source radio priority up or down

Note: due to the lack of talkgroups in Fusion and D-Star voice calls,
all calls are treated as private calls, so clicking on a call's priority field
will modify the source radio's priority level.

Added conventional comms priority control.
Previous versions of DSD+ only used group or radio priorities and overrides to
control tuning of VC FMPA/FMP24 on trunking systems;
priorities had no effect on conventional traffic.

This version adds support for priority control of conventional voice calls (all protocols).
If a conventional call's priority is below the cutoff threshold, DSD+ will mute the audio.
Press 't' or 'T' to adjust the cutoff threshold.

A signal type information display has been added to the event log window.
The following codes are displayed:

CS - NXDN conventional subscriber
CB - NXDN conventional base station
TS - NEXEDGE trunk subscriber
TB - NEXEDGE trunk base station
MS - DMR subscriber
BS - DMR base station
D1 - DMR subscriber using DCDM slot 1
D2 - DMR subscriber using DCDM slot 2


FMP-Map 1.2

Stability improvements.

Changes made to offline map handling; if a map tile is unavailable,
the tile image is now generated from higher level tiles.


LRRP 1.07

Stability improvements.

Changes made to offline map handling; if a map tile is unavailable,
the tile image is now generated from higher level tiles.

Added support for D-Star callsign display.


FMPA 2.14

Stability improvements.

Startup collisions eliminated;
Multiple copies of FMPA can be started simultaneously, no delays required.

FMPA now uses FFTW to process spectrum data.
Retrieve this file: ftp://ftp.fftw.org/pub/fftw/fftw-3.3.5-dll32.zip
Extract the libfftw3f-3.dll file from the zipfile and copy it to your DSD+ folder.
The first time you run FMPA 2.14, it will benchmark the available FFT methods
and select the fastest method for your CPU.
During the benchmarking process, you should not run any other CPU-intensive programs,
including DSD+ or other copies of FMPA or FMP24 or any other SDR software.
Benchmark results are stored in FMPA.dat; do not copy the FMPA.dat file to other computers.
Deleting the FMPA.dat file will trigger a new benchmarking run the next time FMPA is run.

Added auto center tuning. This function is always enabled.

Added command line option: -u<num> enable/disable unlicensed spectrum display

Added active key: 'U' enable/disable unlicensed spectrum display

When this mode is enabled, spectrum that is not covered by an entry in the
frequency data .CSV files will flash in the FMPA spectrum display window.


FMP24 2.33

Stability improvements.

Startup collisions eliminated;
Multiple copies of FMP24 can be started simultaneously, no delays required.

FMP24 now uses FFTW to process spectrum data.
Retrieve this file: ftp://ftp.fftw.org/pub/fftw/fftw-3.3.5-dll32.zip
Extract the libfftw3f-3.dll file from the zipfile and copy it to your DSD+ folder.
The first time you run FMP24 2.33, it will benchmark the available FFT methods
and select the fastest method for your CPU.
During the benchmarking process, you should not run any other CPU-intensive programs,
including DSD+ or other copies of FMPA or FMP24 or any other SDR software.
Benchmark results are stored in FMP24.dat; do not copy the FMP24.dat file to other computers.
Deleting the FMP24.dat file will trigger a new benchmarking run the next time FMP24 is run.

Added command line option: -u<num> enable/disable unlicensed spectrum display

Added active key: 'U' enable/disable unlicensed spectrum display

When this mode is enabled, spectrum that is not covered by an entry in the
frequency data .CSV files will flash in the FMP24 spectrum display window.

Added spectrum survey mode.
Edit FMP24.SurveyList to define centers of 2.4 MHz spectrum chunks.
Typically, centers are multiples of 1 MHz and spaced 2 MHz apart, for example: 770, 772, 774.
Chunks do not have to be contiguous. Example: 451, 453, 455, 461, 463, 465.

Set an appropriate gain level before starting a survey.
Press 'Y' to start spectrum survey.
FMP24 will continuously sample the spectrum chunks defined in FMP24.SurveyList.
For fastest operation, FFT size should be set to 16 in FMP24.cfg before starting FMP24.
Spectrum data is written to .survey files.
Use Survey.exe to view spectrum history.
Press Esc to stop a spectrum survey.


Survey 1.5

FMP24 Spectrum Survey Viewer

This program continuously reads the .survey files created by FMP24 during a spectrum survey.
Two windows are displayed. The first shows the peak and average levels for a 2.4 MHz chunk
of spectrum. The second shows a frequency vs time 3D display of the same 2.4 MHz chunk.
Edit Survey.cfg to set the height of the 3D display.
Edit Survey.cfg to set .CSV frequency data file names.
Edit Survey.cfg to set monitoring location and frequency data search distance.

Pressing '?' lists all active keys in the console window.

Use the left and right arrows to move to spectrum chunks.

Press [ or ] to select an appropriate step size.

Mouse over the first window to display license data.

Press PageUp/PageDown to move the mouse in fine increments over the first window;
this makes it easier to place the red mouse line on carrier centers to trigger the
license information display.

As the mouse line is moved across the first window, the corresponding spectrum
in the 3D display is highlighted. Press 'I' to isolate the highlighted spectrum
if it is hidden behind stronger signals.

Thank You to the DSDPlus Authors and distributors I can not wait to play with the new release over the next week it looks like it has some amazing new features!

I tried to attach the dll file but it was to large if you can not find it on the web please feel free to either Email me for those of you who know me from CARMA or the boards. Others feel free to shoot me a PM and I will try and get it out to you when I can tonight.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,
Bob

The above seems perhaps confused. The official webpage does not show such a release but shows current still as 1.01. My Fastlane Version is 2.39. Curren FMPA is listed as 2.7 matching closer your 2.71. Can you provide a link to where you saw what you posted?

Happy like a kid at Christmas with an anticipating mind, only to unwrap the present and find it isn't quite what you wanted...

(No P25 Phase 2)

Still glad to see work being done on it though...

DSDPlus 1.01 is the latest public release
DSDPlus 2.71 is the latest Fast Lane release (website never has FL versions on it)

Downloaded, installed,running well. Don't forget to download 7Zip as WinZip won't extract the program files.

A couple of things I've noticed so far.

Audio on DMR seems more clear. I don't know why, but it is.
I'm seeing LRRP data and can see the result on the map. Not sure what I'll do with it, but it's nice.

Surely the thing for the DSD+ folks to do is to do things however the hell they want.

Mike

PS: My DSDPlus 2.71 arrived at 12:56 AM EST Christmas morning.

For those of you who are FastLane subscribers, especially if you don't use Gmail, you should be checking your Inbox / Spam / Junk folders. The crappy email systems of Comcast, AOL, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc are notorious for dumping legitimate things into the Spam / Junk folders. Some of those providers are even notorious for silently disposing of incoming emails altogether. That certainly is no fault of the author.

If you find the DSDPLus FL emails in your Spam/Junk folder, be sure to whitelist anything from dsdplusfastlane@gmail.com. Of course, even that won't guarantee that shoddy email providers will actually accept the emails and put them in your Inbox.

Mike
