Some utilities to control AOR
using Windows CE HPC devices
Useful to explore a frequency range in
Just check the log later and concentrate your listening efforts on the
can find the logic behind this kind of procedure: extending the
monitoring time beyond your spare time (just sit HPC and radio there,
running, while you work or sleep) will increase dramatically your
chances of finding new active frequencies.
Applet will search a given frequency range at a desired step, logging
all signals above a certain s-meter level both on the screen and in a
Commands available while applet is running:
- "s" decrease / "f" increase search speed in steps of
50ms between channels
- "d" decrease / "i" increase s-meter threshold in
steps of 5 against the 0-255 range handled by the receiver
Please note that a high search speed
joint with a low s-meter threshold will often result in a series of
false hits. In fact looks like the VFO responds slower than the
software control, with the squelch tail closing while radio is already
on the following frequency.
The output file can later by browsed manually or imported into other
software for further analysis.
Here is an example: i left HPC + radio running all day, while at work.
In the evening I just got my "log4.txt" file and imported it into a
a great solution)
Running the "data pilot
wizard (for those of you using MS Excel it's called "pivot table
") I quickly got a table
summarizing the frequencies that got more hits:
In a matter of minutes I went through the most used and was
able to identify the user.
Casual searching of the same range in my -very little- spare time could
have taken days to achieve the same results.
