Using FMMP (which I can only get to work right by using the FMMP-CC bat file. I can’t get FMMP VC bat file or FMMP.exe to work. )

Everything is working perfect on the CC bat with DSD fast-lane (I have the latest release).


It recognizes my FreqList.cvs location.


My long/lat is correct. My miles are correct.

But it just says

“Loading Frequency Data….”

And I never can get said data to show on FMMP display.

I’ve used Radio Reference data download as well Digital Search dowload.

Any advice?

USA License Data

For each DSD+ Fast Lane release, up to date FCC data is used
to create FMP/FMP24/FMPA/FMPP-compatible CSV files.

Per-state files are here:

https://www.dsdplus.com/dsdplusuploads/FastLane/States.zip

A single USA-wide file is here:

https://www.dsdplus.com/dsdplusuploads/FastLane/USA.zip

The DSD+ 2.10 notes explain how to use these optional files



DSD+ 2.10 New Features
----------------------


USA License Data

We have created FMP/FMP24/FMPA-compatible FCC frequency data CSV files.
May 16, 2016 FCC data was used to create the files.
These files contain 3.8 million unique records.

Per-state files are here:

MEGA

A single USA-wide file is here:

MEGA

Note:

The large USA-wide file will not overwhelm or slow down FMP/FMP24/FMPA
or use more memory resources than one or two of the per-state files.

The per-state files are provided for users who wish to conserve disk space.

Multiple files can be combined into one file by using Notepad and copy/paste
commands, or by direct copying at a command prompt:

COPY file1.csv + file2.csv + ... + filex.csv targetfile.csv


The CSV file(s) you will be using should be copied to your DSD+ folder.

Edit your FMP/FMP24/FMPA .cfg file(s) and make the following changes:

a) add a CSV file name to the primary and/or auxiliary CSV lines

Examples:

USA.csv ; primary frequency list CSV path\filename

AZ.csv ; primary frequency list CSV path\filename
NM.csv ; auxiliary frequency list CSV path\filename

TriState.csv ; primary frequency list CSV path\filename

b) set the distance units

Example:

miles ; miles or kilometers

c) set the search radius

Example:

120 ; search distance

d) set your monitoring location; units are decimal degrees

Example:

35.6090 -108.8290 ; search origin (Rock Springs)


Each time FMP/FMP24/FMPA tunes to a new frequency, the frequency records
are scanned for matches that lie within the search distance you specified.
Matches are listed in the FMP/FMP24/FMPA console window.
Matches are sorted by distance (farthest first, closest last)

The copies of FMPA and FMP24 that are included in this release will also
pass the closest record's data to DSD+ (requires TCP link)

Your right...it can't be a problem with the cfg file extension if if its being recognized.

I'm not at home right now but thank you for your response. I probably need to be using the csv files that Fastlane makes. The one thing that is making me nervous is I see that they don't mention FMMP. I wonder if FMMP will not pass the data through TCP.

What you quoted is from when the feature first came out in version 2.10.


This quote is from up to date notes.txt and mentions FMPP.

I did not read up from 2.10 to current so if you have any doubts, read notes.txt up from 2.10 and see if, where and when it was added for FMPP.

That worked! Your the man! Lesson learned everyone who comes after me. Use Fastlane's csv file and read the notes!
