Storage of scanner information

Post by tanger32au » Fri Aug 09, 2013 12:57 pm

For the past few months I have been spending a lot of time logging and confirming active frequencies around my city. This has included adding notes on call signs, codes and other related information which I will be posting on my website.

I have used an Excel spreadsheet until now but think I am getting to the point where this is limiting me and how much information I can log on some frequencies. For those of us who store information how do you do it? Have you found any software that is useful for this purpose?

Hi Paul
I wrote a custom application to handle the received frequencies and data obtained from the ACMA database. The program uses MS SQL Server to store the data and SQL Queries are run by the program to collect whatever data I need to look at. It has been expanded to give me my favorite lists of frequencies to search for and can also export formatted lists to go into the scanner.
