Starting in version 3.00.06 we have upgraded to an advanced database which
allows importing of common databases including the popular ILG Radio Database.
Our format has enough fields to import the largest of databases including
the entire ILG, as well
as additional radio specific fields.
The database is heavily integrated with the radio control software and
allows for tuning in one of two ways. Either tune from the database window
and watch the radio follow or tune the radio in the normal manner and
watch the results in either the DB window or the new TNT (track-n-tune)
The Database is loaded with features including user configurable
colors for current selection, matching frequencies, stations currently
broadcasting and more. You can either tune using the database by either
double clicking your selection or by using the radio buttons (arrows)
to advance one line at a time. click
Each record in the database
MUST be preceeded by the following line.
This tag defines the start of a record. The fields in a record are defined
as follows and MUST follow in any order. one per line, each terminated
by a newline character.Each line can be up to 255 characters long. Each
record entry looks as follows.
Frequency=13.650000 (Must be frequency in MHZ)
QSL_INFO=no QSL info
Email=no QSL info
Filter=8.00 (Can be either 8.00 or 8000)
Transmitter_Zone=Tx Zone 20
AutoSCHEDULE=0 (Must be 0 or 1)
DAY=0 (actual number)
HOUR=0 (actual number)
MINUTE=0 (actual number)
HOUR2=0 (actual number)
MINUTE2=0 (actual number)
SkipScan=0 (Must be 0 or 1)
Note that the "=" sign must follow each field with no spaces.
All of the fields are free form except those noted. The CallSign Software
disk file is an *.cdb" file and be loaded, appended, or saved. One
the data is in memory it may be combined with a ".rmf" file
and susequently saved as a ".cdb" database. There is no limit
to the size of the database other than available memory or disk or for
that matter CPU speed as big files may take a while to process.
ILG is without
a doubt the most complete database in the world. As a courtesy
we have listed the field format for those who wish to convert it and use
with our programs. If you are a serious SWL'r we highly recommend you
register with ILG and take
advantage of their database. The database structure is listed here.
