RE: Re: Weather Fax decode software


Hi John

I Downloaded this program but can not find where to define receiver to
ICOM PCR1000?   The only thing I can find is RS232 but I do not think
this is enough to work with the radio?   Can you help?
Thanks
Matty

Although I have, and sometimes use WEFAX, I find that the one I use 
most is the WXtoIMG program. It does a lot more than just make a 
display of the raw data. It also can control the receiver (PRC1000) 
and can actually keep track of the satellites and download the 
images and process them all automatically without any human 
intervention. It has a built in satellite tracker and can update 
keps from within the program while running. I get great images using 
the PCR1000 and get to see sea temperatures and much more, as it 
also has several enhancement modes for the images, including built 
in map overlays based on your position. In my opinion, a fantastic 
program and so far, I have had great support from the author in New 
Zealand ...

Re: Weather Fax decode software


You have to register the software in order to control your PCR1000.
You also get a lot of other options available if you register.

Subject: [PCR1000] network use step-by-step

I have been using the free Ham Radio Deluxe and the free Windows Media
Encoder for a few days now via my home network and the Internet.

I love it! Currently I am at work listening to my PCR-1000 at home. Now,
all
I need to do is get a better antenna and I will be all set.

The "server" is merely a Windows XP Home laptop connected wirelessly via
802.11b and the PCR-1000

Basically, you run a "service" on the computer connected to the PCR-1000
and
you also run Windows Media Encoder to feed the audio. On the client you
run
HRD3.1 to control and Windows Media Player to listen.

Here are some step-by-steps:

to control the PCR-1000: install Ham Radio Deluxe 3.1 Beta dated
December
23, 2004
available at http://hrd.ham-radio.ch/downloads.html
choose HRDv31beta build 606
run and test the software and your PCR-1000

then set up the server:
at a DOS prompt go to \Program Files\Amateur Radio\Ham Radio Deluxe
and run HRDRemoteSvr.exe -install
go to control panel...administrative tools...services and look for HRD
and
adjust properties to Automatic so it runs through boots
note that it is now unnecessary to run HRD itself on the server, just
the
"service" you just set up

to CONTROL the receiver remotely
once running HRD on the client:
choose receiver
Company: Icom
Radio: PCR-1000
Comport: remote
speed:autodetect
then CONNECT
address: the ip address of the server for example 192.168.1.104
enter default port 7805
user name: user
password: password
click connect
when you get the welcome message, click OK
then see Remote Connection just minimize it
you will now be able to control the receiver over your LAN

to BROADCAST
use Windows Media Encoder 9 (
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=5691ba02-e496-4
65a-bba9-b2f1182cdf24&DisplayLang=en )
choose BROADCAST a live event
choose the audio device you are connecting the PCR-1000 to. Suggestion:
set
the PCR-1000 to line level out and feed it to your sound card line level
in.
choose PULL from the encoder rather than push to a server
Encoding Options: FM Quality Audio ( sounds GREAT on wireless as well as
a
cellphone connection at about 50kBPS, should be fine for dial-up )

to LISTEN remotely:
use Windows Media Player 9 or 10
file...open URL
enter 192.168.1.104:8080
( the same address of the server followed by colon 8080 )
the bad news is there is about a 10 second delay for the audio to appear
on
the client but you won't believe how good it sounds.

If on the Internet use ZoneAlarm ( http://www.zonelabs.com ) on the
server
and allow the two applications Windows Media Encoder and HRD to act as
servers
When I skipped that my server was hacked into within minutes! USE
ZoneAlarm!!!!!!!!!

If going through a wireless or wired router, set the DMZ open for the
server
only. For example, my server is at 192.168.1.104 so THAT one machine is
open
to the Internet
I'm not sure if the DMZ setting in the router can restrict to ports, if
it
did I would allow access back from the Internet only to ports 7805 and
8080
on the server

Hello All, is it possible for the PCR1000 to scan all banks at the 
same time i.e. continuously,like the Icom R8500?
Many thanks

Re: PCR1000


To answer your question simply …. YES …..

The frequencies are stored, and the scanning is done in the software 
you are using, not the radio. The software you select is the key to 
how the radios operate. This is true for both the PCR1000 as well as 
the R8500. There are a variety of control software out there and 
they are indeed vastly different. Some are better than others at 
certain things. Each package has it's protractors and detractors. 
Indeed, you will also find many proponents and opponents of each. 
Best bet is to read through the posts about each different package, 
then go to the websites of each and download the free trial versions 
and try them out yourself. Virtually all of them have some form of 
demo to see if it is what you want.

To list a few, and in no particular order:

The software that comes with the radio from ICOM
Radiocom (Bonito?)
Bonito (demo version packed with some PCR1000s)
Ham Radio Deluxe
Talk PCR
Trunk PCR
Probe 1K
There is supposed to be Palm software of some kind (called PCRPilot 
I think) ..

Re: PCR1000


RadioControl has a different concept of dealing with memories. It allows
the creation of Memory Files that are virtually unlimited in size that
is no splitting in banks is done. Instead you will create a file and
group frequencies of a particular matter in there. So one file may have
100 and another just 15 channels. However its of course possible to
create files that are all equal in size and to mimic the "bank feature"
of certain radios. It's up to you.

Of course there is a Trial Edition available for download at
www.radioctl.com/english The Trial and Lite Edition limit the size of
Memory Files to 50 channels (however it's enough for many purposes), the
Standard and Professional Edition do not have any limits. In addition
the software also provides a MS Access based Frequency Database that can
hold all of your known frequencies and serve as base for creating Memory
Files.
