New Features and Enhancements for PROBE Version 7.0
===================================================== TacScan - TacScan assigns an active frequency to a priority position in the scanning list for a specified period of time. When and how the frequency is assigned as a TacScan frequency is based on the settings for TacScan. This feature provides more activity and enhances continuity of ongoing transmissions. Import CSV Files - CSV data, a common data format, can now be imported directly into PROBE. You control what data goes where. New Monitor Functions - More control over what you hear Templock Monitor - A frequency can be templocked for a specified period of time based on specified time of activity. This feature is useful for temporarily locking out a frequency that may be the result of stuck key or otherwise interfering with the regular scanning process. Carrier Check - Checks for presence or absence of carrier for an active frequency. If the carrier switches from active to inactive, or vice versa, and does so as many times and within a period of time specified, PROBE templocks the frequency for a specified period of time and resumes scanning. The primary benefit of this function is to temporarily remove a frequency which exhibits carrier oscillation within a short period of time. New Optocom Feature - Download frequencies. This function downloads frequencies from the Optocom's memory to a bank of choice. New Output Functions - Now you can output the data directly from PROBE's frequency and log viewers to a variety of text files. This provides you with more control over what winds up in the file. Text File - Provides same output as Output to printer except it outputs the headings once and does not output page breaks. CSV File - Provides same output as Output to printer except it adheres to CSV rules for each field being encapsulated by quotation marks ( ) and each field separated by a comma (,). Mapping File - Available with the Frequency Viewer , the mapping file allows you to import latitude, longitude, name and frequency data into popular mapping programs such as Street Atlas. New Viewer Functions - More control over viewing your data: Added three new indexes to the frequency file viewer: Marked + Bank + Frequency + Tone Marked + Frequency + Tone Marked + DBA Name Added new feature to F10 - Extra Options for marking frequency records which meet one of the following criteria: duplicate frequencies, locked out, or when a Smartbank is assigned. Added New Kill Functions - Killtemp has been renamed Kill . This redesigned functions provide a list of Templocks or TacScan frequencies in effect. Frequencies can be tagged for deletion. These functions also double as a means for viewing Templocks and TacScan frequencies. A highlighted frequency in Kill is automatically tuned by the scanner. Other Additions and Modifications Autoresume on Pause - Expressed as HH:MM:SS . The time represents how long PROBE will Pause on an active frequency when the
