Markers

 

 

 


 

Introduction

Use the Markers option (added in 3.0.11) to annotate the spectrum display as shown below. In general, markers are used for:

  • Beacons
  • Fixed transmissions such as:
    • Broadcast FM,
    • Repeaters,
    • VLF - time signals.
  • Regular nets.

Markers are taken from:

  • Definitions in a local database,
  • DX Cluster,
  • Memories.

Interface

Select Markers from the ribbon bar, View, Spectrum pane. Click the button to enable the display, from the dropdown select the options below.

Add Current

Display a small window with the current frequency entered for you. Just add a title for the marker and press OK.

Configuration

This is the display where you manage:

  • The appearance: font size, colour and style.
  • The local database definitions: frequency, title, visible status.

Import & Export

In the configuration display you can import and export definitions in:

  • Comma Separated Values (CSV) and
  • Extensible Markup Language (XML) format.

First select the export option to create a file, the import file format is identical. Typically use a program such as Microsoft Excel to edit a CSV file and XML Notepad to edit XML files. Of course, there are many other options including Notepad.
