PDW Development / Search and Always on top...
« on: 16 Dec 2014, 15:04:06 »
Hi, it's me again!  ;D

Two more suggestions.

1. To be able to search in the monitor window. I know I can search the log files, but a serach, like e.g. Notepad, in the main window would be great.

2. To have the option of setting the PDW window to be "Always on top", so that it is always visible. I know that I can make it pop up using sys tray setting, but I think Always on top option would be even better.

I'm sure I'll pop by this suggestion topic soon again. Which I knew how to develop software, so I could help out with the coding.

Have a nice week!

PDW Development / Latest on top...
« on: 15 Dec 2014, 14:38:18 »
Hi All,

I don't know about you guys, but personally I'd like to be able to change the direction of the message flow. I.e. to get the latest message at the top, not at the bottom, of the window. So the further down I scroll, the older messages I see.

Could this perhaps be built in as an option?

PDW Support / User Interface...

Hi All,

Can someone please tell me why I can't modify the width of the columns? It should be a problem to word-wrap (automatic new line) if the column is too narrow for the message?
I mean, a real physical pager isn't this wide, so it should be no problem?

Also, the window size. Why can't I make the whole PDW window more narrow?

The filter windows is huge, guessing around 95% of full screen. Also, I can't resize it.

Can this be fixed?

PDW Support / SDR + Scanner plugin + PDW...
« on: 11 Dec 2014, 21:33:51 »
Hi all,

I'm up and running with PDW, and it works well. But I'd like to scan through several frequencies, and still have PDW decode the messages.

I'm using a RTL-SDR USB dongle, and the software SDR# (SDR Sharp). Added to this I have a scanner plugin that makes SDR# jump between the frequencies I tell it.

My concern is that I might miss the beginning of the transmission, and thus not decode the message. I've tweaked it to work with two frequencies quite well. But I'm curious to hear how you've set it up?
Do you run it via SDR (Software-Defined Radio)?
How many frequencies do you monitor simultaneously?
If you use SDR# + Jeff KNapp's scanner plugin, what settings do you use?
How many milliseconds of the beginning of the message can I miss, and still be able to decode (I guess there is a pre-amble?)

Lot of questions there, but let me know how you do it.

PDW Development / ric aliases
« on: 11 Dec 2014, 21:24:50 »
Hi all,

Just started using PDW, and it works very well.

A thing that came to my mind was that it would be great if you could create a ric/address alias database/file.
So, when a known ric/address sends a message, I can see the name I've given it, not the ric/address number.

What are your thoughts?
