The primary function of the software is to provide a means to program
the MR8100 scanning receiver in terms of frequency and descriptive text
assignments. The current contents of the radios memory can be retrieved
and updated as required. A printout may be generated for reference.
In a typical scenario, a set of frequencies and descriptions can be entered
into a PC at base without tying up the radio. Then, after a printout and
confirmation of its accuracy, the data can be transferred to the scanner
when it is convenient to do so. If you are using a portable or laptop PC
this can be accomplished without removing the radio from its operating
position. It takes about one minute to load a complete set of one hundred
channels into the MR8100.
For even more flexibility, multiple files of frequency data can be saved on
your PCs disk. For example, one file could contain HAM repeaters and
another could contain fire department or ambulance frequencies. The
scanner can then be quickly configured for whatever scanning task is
required. Only a minimum of keystrokes is required, making the software
practical for in-the-field use.
In summary, the frequencies of the 100 channels as well as a textual
description visible on the scanners LCD panel can be defined using your
