What is the best way for someone to get all the information the Radio Reference Database into any standard database format, i.e. csv or dbf? With the wealth of information in the RR databse it is very frustrating having to go through so many steps to get this information into a format to where I can easily copy and paste it to my scanner software. I am the proud new owner of a BCD396T and will be purchasing ARC396. The best meathod I can come up with is to copy the info from RR database webpages and paste into OpenOffice Calc, then save it to a dbase file. I am still working how to wittle that information down to get only the info I want to copy and paste to ARC396. If Radio Refernce were to make easily downloadable database files, I would consider being a monthly subscriber!

I'm pleased to announce the release of the RadioReference.com Database v2.0 in Beta Form.

http://www.radioreference.com/modules.php?name=RR_D

Some new features include:

1. Updated Searches
2. Tabs for access to FCC, Grants, Downloads, History etc
3. Better FCC integration
4. CSV Downloads of Data
5. PDF formats for conventional data
6. Integration with FAA data for ARTCC data

... and much much more.

Please do not link to this data, rely on it for accuracy, or otherwise actively communicate this release until we are ready for production. I am requesting comments, feedback, bug reports, problems etc to be posted to this thread.

You will obviously run into bugs, missing things, problems etc, so be patient as we fix them for the gold 2.0 release coming shortly.

Warm regards,

Lindsay

New Window "Pre-Defined Downloads"
New Window...Download Printable PDF Files of all Identified Frequencies in
Agency:State Police.
Clicked on that Adobe PDF Icon.
ERROR...Internet Explorer encountered a Problem.
The Following Add-On was running when this problem Occurred.

Working like a charm from here.

Make sure you update your Adobe Acrobat PDF reader.. it may be an old version.
