Automatic RN Recorder Software developed by Santanu Tosh (EA)
     This software uses the Telnet system in Windows 7 and above Operating Systems to remotely configure and tune a ABR202a C-Band Downlink receiver through the ethernet port. Then it can record the receiver output using the computers sound recording capability, either manually or if configured then automatically as per schedule (example RN messages).

About RN Recorder
  • Downlink receiver (ABR202a) is tuned automatically and RN Messages or other relayed audio are recorded as per schedule. No manual intervention is needed for scheduled recordings.
  • Schedules can be added for each or any day of the week and for a single date also.
  • Schedules can be overlapped using priority settings.
  • Recording and receiver tuning is also available in manual mode.
  • Recorded audio is stored in 48 kHz & 24 bits wav format.
  • Recorded audio file is available for playback & editing immediately on successful completion of recording.
  • Recorded audio file can be edited using any Sound Editor software.
  • Scheduled Recordings stop automatically if there is no audio from the Receiver for more than 2 minutes at a stretch after the initial 10 minutes. Very useful feature for Scheduled Recording of RN messages (which vary in length considerably from day to day) without consuming much disk space.
  • Old recordings are automatically deleted to maintain adequate free space on the recording hard disk drive.
  • Dual recording mode is available on computers with dual sound cards, i.e. simultaneous recording from 2 separate sources can be accomplished.
