Has anyone had any luck logging with the PSR 500? I see Win 500 has the feature but I haven't had any luck getting it to work?? Thanks for any input!!!
Thanks I will give it a try tonight.mtindor said:NOTE: I installed Win500 in F:\Win500
Look at my screenshot of how I have it set up in the Monitor/Control tab
All I need to do is click Start and then it starts logging - It makes a new log in f:\win500 every day. For instance, today's log is in F:\Win500\03-05-2008 . The actual path to the actual log ends up being F:\Win500ActivityLog 2008-03-05.txt
Obviously you'll want to choose the directory you want the logs in, and you may or may not want it to generate a new logfile every day.
But you have to Start the monitor/control in order for it to log.
Also - If you are going to do this, you should have the same exact information in your scanner as you have loaded up in Win500 at the time. For instance, if you carried your scanner around all day and found 20 new talkgroups and stored them while you were out, and then you came back home and hooked it up to the computer and just fired up Win500 and started monitoring, Win500 wouldn't know the specific new talkgroups that you had added in the scanner unless you remember to sync up your scanner with your latest Win500 file.
Is the correct COM port set in Win500? And the USB cable plugged into both the PC and scanner?mandlair said:Hi,Don log history both,lcd u/d,u/d hit counts active file,lcd poll ms 100,status poll 10,tune mode 25 auto. As far as I can tell thats all of them unless i'm missing something? A
