Anyone have a pointer to how to find information in the recording headers? Specifically, I'm looking for the system "site" string in the recordings.

The entire listing of what is supposed (less the bugs) to be captured in the headers would be great....

WAV file header

I did some searching and found a simple routine to extract the WAV file header. Here is the VBA code in Excel. If you type the full path/filename in the upper left cell and double-click any cell the header will pop up in a window. I'm very pleased that the tone is recorded in the header for conventional listings. I plan to write a routine that will rename the files to include the freq/tone or system/TG and sort them into a more useful file structure. -Tim

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Cancel = True
Dim i%, str$, Chunk(900) As Byte
f = FreeFile
Open Cells(1, 1) For Binary Access Read As f
Get f, , Chunk()
Close f
Do
If Chunk(i) > 31 And Chunk(i) < 127 Then str = str & Chr(Chunk(i))
i = i + 1
Loop Until i = 900
MsgBox str
End Sub

Here is the header from a trunked recording:

I forget where I found this. It pertains to the HP-1, but also appears to apply to the x36. The only "problem" is that the x36 ends some of the metadata tags with hex x10h instead of the standard x40h. I don't recall which ones are affected, but you can find them looking at my previous posts or search meta (I just posted in day before yesterday).
