You can use alkaline as well.
P275 FM Analyzer / Re: P275E FM Monitor Data Output in JSON Format
« Last post by plonkarchivist on December 05, 2023, 02:42:14 am »
Hi Jan,

we will buy a bunch of P275E soon to monitor our sites. Do you see any chance to implement the output of the measured data in a JSON format, this would be way easier for most of the monitoring software to read than the CRLF-Format which needs extensive parsing.

  "frequency": 100.7,
  "pilot": 5.6,
  "rds": 3.0,
  "max": 72.9,
  "rdsps": "Test FM",
  "rdsrt": "This is my incredibly sexy Radiotext"
Thanks and best regards,


Sounds interesting, I'm looking forward to it

Hello, do the batteries for the P275 need to be rechargeable? If so, are these charged inside the analyzer?


Silence Detector / Fail-Over Automation Using Silence Sensor?
« Last post by soundesigner on December 02, 2023, 12:31:45 am »
I run a low power FM college station (GM, PD, CE, webmaster, janitor, etc.). Thanksgiving (U.S. holiday) night, the automation PC completely shut down and because the campus was closed, I had to transfer to less-than-ideal backup programming at the transmitter via remote desktop.  I would like to set up a backup automation PC at the transmitter and, in the event audio from the studio fails (due to power outage, computer dying, problems with the studio-to-transmitter link, angry squirrels, etc.), have the stream switch over to the backup.

Because this is a college station, I have to do this on the cheap.  In addition to switching something via the serial port, can the silence sensor software start/run another program on the computer (or activate hot keys)?  Rather than using an external relay, I have been looking at using two sound cards and software like SoundSwitch or Audio Switcher.

Thoughts?  Thanks!

Version 4.1.5

  • When sending clock time via UECP, the UTC offset is always included
  • Toolbar Save button: confirmation is required if the save operation is expected to take more than a few seconds
  • Task Scheduler: Preset added for text scheduling
  • Some corrections have been made to the documentation
P132, P164, P232(U) and P332 RDS Encoders / Re: Losing characters in P164 Replies

Since this encoder model has been used for years without reporting such issue, I would recommend to check the other side  :)
Such issue may happen if you read only single character on the RX buffer event.

An equivalent read operation can be performed by a TCP terminal application, obviously no character is getting lost when you read the RT.

We have just started using the P164 RDS encoder.  I have some simple Python code as a TCP client to send an RT1 string over the Ethernet interface.  That works fine, and I get a '+' in the reply.  But if I read the RT1 back, I seem to lose a few characters in the reply string, at random locations. Any suggestions why this is happening?

Thanks,  Bill

Is there an option to this from Icecast?

This seems to be the RDS encoder failure. What's the brand and model?

In current implementation, the Magic RDS 4 sends 'Real time clock' command without the local time specified (set to 0xFF = unchanged). The encoder probably misinterpretes that as -31. Such errors are quite often also in the encoders that boast full UECP support in promotional materials.
