After starting the program, all available soundcards will be listed here. A soundcard needs to be selected and confirmed with OK. The sample rate can be set within a wide range. The recording channel is preset to 0 (left channel = mono).
|Here, you can enter a path for saving the sound files, or you can select a path by clicking on Path. Two different folder are available for this purpose: " \RC_1 (RC_2, .. RC_9)" and " \W" Also, you can select the language here.|
|Radio network no. 1 9, radio network name, COM port for tx keying (pin 4 = DTS; pin 7 = RTS) and squelch (pins 1, 6, 8 and 9).|
|Enter the minimum and maximum recording times here. In the example, only recordings with a duration of more than 10 s are saved. Longer conversations are divided into chunks: Every 180 s, a sound file is saved and a new recording starts automatically. There will be a short gap between the two files.|
|Recording stops after a period of silence longer than the value entered here (in this example: 8 s). Recording starts as soon as the input threshold is exceeded for more than the number of milliseconds entered in the second field (here: 10 ms).|
|Sound files in folder \W older than three days are deleted each time the program is started and additionally each day at 00:00:30am. The playback level is determined by the volume level. The maximum volume depends on the computer's volume setting.|
|In this example, the sound card input will be sampled every 1 ms. Values between 10 and 30 ms are recommended so as not to affect overall system performance. In contrast to Windows 7, sample intervals of up to 1 ms are no problem on Windows XP systems. Try different settings to find a suitable value. The start threshold has to be chosen carefully: When the value is too low, recording may be started by noisy signals or repeater identification. A convenient level can be found by setting the volume fader directly above the level indicator when the repeater sends an identification signal.|
|The record function starts automatically after starting the program. The main window will not be minimized. The level meter works linearly.|
|Each sound file will be given a name consisting of the radio network no., year, month, day, hour and file extension. Example: 1_01-02-2012_23-52-09.wav. The settings window (the window displayed right now) will be shown after starting the program. Sending via COM is deactivated.|
|After starting playback of a sound file, all subsequent sound files will be played as well- Checking the field "program start" will start the program automatically after starting Windows. Checking "Auto TX after" will repeat the selected sound file after pausing for the number of seconds entered in the field.|
