New Version of DRM Disco
After more than one year, the brand new version 2.0 of DRM Discoverer is ready to download! Just in time for the winter schedule B05;)

Because the old thread is deleted, here comes a short intoduction of DRM Discoverer:

The DRM Discoverer will guide you through the rapidly increasing number of daily DRM transmissions. The schedule always shows in green the broadcasts, that are currently on the air. Red transmissions are comming next. Just select one and your connected receiver will tune immediately to this frequency. DRM Discoverer is especially designed for the the use with the DRM Software Radio from Fraunhofer, where you can easily start and stop log files with just one click. Nevertheless you can also use DRM Discoverer together with Dream, because it provides more RX controlls and you can tune just with your mouse wheel, but the log function of Dream cannot be controlled.

Currently supported receivers are: AOR AR 7030, Yaesu FRG100, FT757GX, FRG8800, FT847, TenTec RX320D, WiNRADiO G303, ICOM PCR-1000, Elektor DRM RX and Telefunken E1800, NRD 545 and Digital World Traveller.

And these are the new features and changes in version 2.0:

- added support of Coding Technologies Digital World Traveller
- added support of NRD 545
- increased number of rows in schedule grid
- added 7 user editable frequency presets (edit the ini file)
- added some cleverness to the blue bar for detecting current transmissions
- reduced CPU usage
- increased general performance
- reduced display flicker in schedule
- schedule sorting options are stored
- added log duration display
- added Stop Log button to stop the log
- added seconds to the UTC clock

Free download as usual here:

I hope you like it.

Hi Carsten,
just downloaded it very good but, when I click on a channel my Winradio doesn't change to what I've clicked any help?

Hi Paul,

what Winradio do you use? It supports only G303. Also Winradio changed the dll before a few months and you need to install the newest Winradio Software, but be sure to close it before you use Discoverer.

Maybe other Winradio users can help. I didn't change anything to the Winradio control and it worked before.

EDIT: Oh, I see that Winradio has released programming details about the 313 serie. In case there is some interest, I could try to implement this rx in DRM Discoverer too?

Hi Carsten,

what about the DRT1? Not possible at all? :confused:

carknue 28-10-2005 19:31

Hi Fritz,

this rx is already on my todo list, but it is not so easy. It looks a bit similar to the Elektor RX control, that might be an advantage.

BTW Are there any Winradio G313 users here?

radiomann 28-10-2005 19:34

Hi Carsten
I have the G303 so it should work but I never got it to work before your new version of Discovery, I think I'm upto date on the Winradio software.

I need some DRT1 users for betatesting. Please write me a PM with your email address and I will send you soon a Beta for testing.

I'm still looking for Winradio G313 users for testing.

Good news for all Icom users. I implemented the ICOM CI-V interface control in DRM Discoverer, but I need some more beta testers with different Icom rigs. Please sendme a PM and I will send you a beta version.

Hi Carsten,

Thank you! Version 2.1 works very well with my PCR1000. I really like the little indication of the time that the logging is done.

Ten-Tec Mod. 550?
Hi Carsten, I have a Ten-Tec "Pegasus". I've heard that the command set may be the same as the RX-series of radios.
I'll give it a try and let you know.
