FAQ

My audio recording is longer than I expect.  What can I do to fix this?

This is typically caused by the Audio Squelch Threshold being set too low.  The slider on the mains screen of the program is used to adjust the Audio Squelch Threshold.  The slider should be adjusted so that the main screen of the program displays “No Audio” when there is no radio traffic present, but shows audio frequencies when there is radio traffic present.  After adjusting the slider, make sure to exit the program using the “Exit” button on the main screen to save the changes.

Audio recording works as follows:

  1. After a tone set is detected, the TwoToneDetect will wait the amount of time specified by the Record Delay parameter in the Tones Editor for the tone set in question
  2. After the Record Delay has expired, recording begins
  3. Recording continues for the amount of time specified by the Record Time parameter in the Edit Config Info menu
  4. After the Record Time expires, the program continues to record until no more audio is detected for the amount of time specified by the Record Release Time parameter in the Edit Config Info menu.

If the Audio Squelch Level is set too low, the program will continue to detect audio even when there is no radio traffic present, and the recording will continue until a 60 second timeout occurs after the Record Time expires.  If your audio recordings are about 60 seconds plus your Record Time, you probably need to adjust your Audio Squelch Level up a bit.
