External Text Sources, Radiotext 1, Encoding Method
« on: June 25, 2018, 07:55:47 pm »

I'm using Magic RDS 3.7i

I have Radiotext 1 working, some external text sources are enabled, and sent on change.

The Encoding method gives me a choice of:

  • RT1= (default)
  • TEXT=

Due to a strange mixture of infrastructure, I would like to know how to add a new Encoding method, please.

For example, could I define additional Encoding methods of:

  • null (sends the Radio Text without 'RT1=' or 'TEXT=' at the start - only the Radiotext 1 data)
  • special.string (sends special.string Radiotext 1 data) ?

I think I read that this could be possible after bi-directional communication is established with the RDS Encoder - however unfortunately I am only able to achieve unidirectional due to crazy old infrastructure.

Thank you in advance,
