      Hello George,

      Even with the hardware present, it is not possible to make a spectrum
      recording on a remote PERSEUS.
      This can only been done on your local hardware and PC.

      73,

        Good Saturday to all,


        Last night I set Mestor as follows between the dashed lines:


        ======================

        SET 6000/5

        09'25 (40)

        ======================


        Start at 0925 and record for 40 minutes.


        I ended up with files 8 minutes apart (as I would expect).  However, playback did not link these files together.  I was trying to copy the VOA radiogram.


        Normally, lengthy recordings add the 000, 001, 002, etc at the end of a file.


        Is there a Mestor command that will do this?


        I haven't tried yet, but will renaming all the files and adding the 000, 001, etc at the end of each on work?


        There must be a better way if one wants to record with a timer and playback without having to load each sequential file manually.


        Thanks for any help.

        George

              Hi Simon and Guido,

              I manually added _000, _001, _002, etc. before the ".wav" in my 5 files that I want to play in order.  That did work.  However, for many files that would be a tedious thing to do.  Unfortunately, I do not understand the rename.cmd idea.  It is something I am unfamiliar with.

              I have never been able to get com0com to configure on my Win 8.1 computer.  I am sure I am doing something wrong, but it will just not work.

              At the StationList website, there is a screen capture that shows the config screen for com0com.  On the left it shows:

              - Virtual Port Pair 0
                 + COM10
                 + COM11

              I can never seem to duplicate that when trying to set up this program on my computer.  I can not show both COM10 and COM11 at the same time as shown on the screen capture.

              Obviously, I would love to get this to work, since using StationList would be a lot faster than spending my time renaming file after file.

              By the way, I did get VSPE to work, but there is a comment on the StationList website not to use VSPE for SL.
              Thanks for your willingness to help me.

              Regards,
              George

                Hello George,

                Each time I have to re-configure com0com (i.e. when replacing the computer), I like to refer to the following method:

                After installing com0com you have to change the names of the com-ports.
                To do this start „Setup Command Prompt“ and type :
                command> change CNCA0 PortName=COM10
                command> change CNCB0 PortName=COM11
                That’s all! Your Perseus can now work on com10 (your Perseus-Software
                use this port) and com11 (3rd party software).

                This is from the user guide of Wallauer's third party software, RecTimer http://www.frequency-control.de/ which I have used a couple of times in the past.

                The last time I've installed com0com on my Win7 machine, I had driver problems which have been resolved after finding this:

                http://pete.akeo.ie/2011/07/com0com-signed-drivers.html (just in case you need to go further)


                By the way, I did get VSPE to work, but there is a comment on the StationList website not to use VSPE for SL.
                Thanks for your willingness to help me.

                The last time I used VSPE, that was on my Vista machine and the virtual port was often disconnecting which was very annoying. On the other hand, com0com has always been rock-solid and this is so far, my obvious choice if you connect only one item to the virtual port (i.e. StationList).

                  Hi Sylvain,

                  Thanks for your email.  I am trying to get things to work now.

                  I did get com0com to install, even though there were some error messages along the way.  However, I did get a message that it was installed.  I can get to the com0com setup screen.

                  When I went to the command prompt and went to c:\> and typed command.........etc as you had, I get a message that says "Access is denied.".

                  Then I tried it again and I get the message that says: "'command' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file."

                  When at the command prompt, what subdirectory should I be in?  Does this make a difference?

                  So now I am stuck again.  I really would like to use Station List, but this is my second go around with com0com.

                  Regards,
