DSD Fast Lane Edition

Post by kevnerd486 » Fri Aug 23, 2019 11:42 am

A new version 2.197 of DSD Fast Lane has been realesed.

Some good new features, you can know load different sites using the Site Loader Function.

DSD+ 2.197

Note: TCP linking will not work with older copies of FMP24/FMPA/FMPP.
Use the copies provided in this update.

Fixed some 1R (single receiver) mode issues.

Added decoding of additional P25 Phase II messages

VSELP LDU detection (no processing) added

Added ability to block control channel hunting.
Press "C" in DSD+ to toggle.

Added program state tags to event window title bar and channel window title bar.
These tags are displayed as required:

REC Raw audio recording is active

InvPol Decoding polarity is inverted

NoNF Noise filter is disabled

NoSF Symbol shaping filter is disabled

AlertOnClearVoice Alert generated at start of each clear voice transmission

AlertOnEncVoice Alert generated at start of each encrypted voice transmission

AlertOnAnyVoice Alert generated at start of each voice transmission

MonThresh=<num> Voice monitoring threshold (displayed when not set to 100)

MonMode=<num> Raw audio monitoring mode (displayed when not set to 0)

SynthNoAudio Voice audio synthesis is disabled

SynthSlot1 Voice audio synthesis is enabled for DMR slot 1 only

SynthSlot2 Voice audio synthesis is enabled for DMR slot 2 only

Vol=<num> dB Synthesized audio volume level

Added DSDPlus.siteLoader file and site loader window.

This feature adds a simple method to directly tune to trunked sites or conventional channels.
Users add trunked site and conventional channel entries to the DSDPlus.siteLoader file
and then use the site loader window to select a site or channel, which is then tuned to
by FMP24, FMPA or FMPP. TCP linking is required.

The format of the DSDPlus.siteLoader file mimics the DSDPlus.sites file.
Trunked site entries may be directly copied from the .sites file to the .siteLoader file.

Like the .sites file, the line format is protocol, network ID, site number, "alias text"


Additional "header" entries can be created to identify/name networks.
Use a site number value of zero for network header/name entries.


Entries can be created for direct tuning to conventional channels.
Use a protocol type of "Conv" or "Conventional" for conventional channel entries.
Typically, you should use unique network ID and site number values on conventional entries.
This lets DSD+ maintain separate talkgroup and radio records for each conventional digital
voice channel.

Both digital voice and analog voice conventional channel tuning is supported.
AM analog entries are supported when DSD+ is linked to FMP24.
FMPA and FMPP do not currently support AM demodulation.

Frequency and mode/protocol are specified in the alias text for each conventional entry.
The frequency value must appear first, then the analog mode or digital voice protocol,
then an identifying channel name.

For analog FM entries, only frequency and channel name are required.

For analog AM entries, use "AM" as the mode text.

For digital voice entries, use the appropriate protocol name. Choices are "ProVoice",
"P25", "D-Star", "Fusion", "DMR", "DCDM", "dPMR", "NXDN48" and "NXDN96".

DSD+ uses the mode/protocol values to select appropriate bandwidth, demodulation
and monitoring mode settings.

Entries of any type can appear more than once in the file, i.e. you can copy some
favorite / commonly used entries from elsewhere in the file to the top for quick access.

Sample DSDPlus.siteLoader file contents:

P25, BEE11.123, 0, "Mulberry PS"
P25, BEE11.123, 1.1, "North"
P25, BEE11.123, 2.2, "South"

Con+, 1234, 0, "ACME"
Con+, 1234, 1, "Site 1"
Con+, 1234, 1, "Site 2"

Conv, 1, 1, "162.550 WX1"
Conv, 1, 2, "119.150 AM ATIS"
Conv, 1, 3, "163.830 P25 FBI"

Press L in DSD+ to open the Network/Site Loader window.
With the sample file above, the window would look like:

P25 Mulberry PS
Site 1
Site 2
Conv 162.550 WX1
Conv 119.150 AM ATIS
Conv 163.830 P25 FBI

Use the Up/Down and PageUp/PageDown keys to highlight a trunked site or a conventional channel.
Press Enter to tune to the selected site/channel or press Esc to close the window.

If an entry is displayed in red, DSD+ does not have any frequency information to work with:

For trunked P25 sites, manually tune to them or their neighbors and monitor for a while;
DSD+ will record control channel information in the DSDPlus.P25data file.

For other trunked sites, edit the DSDPlus.frequencies file and add site frequencies.

If a conventional entry is red, something is wrong with the frequency information
in the entry's alias text.

The location and size of the network/site loader window and the size of the text
are adjusted in the same manner as the event log window.

A high contrast mode can be selected by pressing H, but the red color used to warn
of a lack of frequency information will not be displayed in high contrast modes.

If, after loading a trunking site, extra/erroneous channels/frequencies are displayed in
the channel window, press D to force DSD+ to discard all system information and rebuild it.

FMP24 2.56

Added support for DSDPlus.siteLoader file.

Added support for bias tee control to provide power to a preamp.
Tested with rtl-sdr.com v3 dongles. Requires updated rtlsdr.dll file.

Use -T1 on the FMP24 command line to enable the bias tee.

Press "t" in FMP24 to toggle the bias tee state.


Updated file that supports FMP24 bias tee control.
This file should be in the same folder as FMP24.exe

FMPA 2.31

Added support for DSDPlus.siteLoader file.

Added "t" active key to toggle bias tee state.

FMPP 1.6

Added support for DSDPlus.siteLoader file.

Updated to SDRPlay API version 3.04
