RadioManager 5.8.1 Released

RadioManager 5.8.1 is now available for download! If you’ve installed RadioManager before, you already have all the dependencies and you can simply download the executable file and run it. If you are trying it for the first time, download the installer now!

New Features 5.8.1 (January 2014)

Bit Error Rate Testing

Added Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT).  By sending test packets, one can extrapolate the effective bit error rate.  This test
is actually a packet error rate test, but it can be used to measure BERT.
To activate the BERT feature:

  1. Connect RadioManger to the radio you wish to test
  2. From the View -> BERT menu select BERT.
  3. Select the data pattern to send.
  4. Set the Interval to the number of milliseconds between packet transmissions.
  5. Click the START button, and RadioManager will begin sending the test packets to the device connected to the communication channel.

Version 5.8.1 added support for the M8S radio modem module as well as the M8T and M8R versions of it.

New Features 5.6.1 (October 2013)

RadioManager 5.4.1 is now available for download! If you’ve installed RadioManager before, you already have all the dependencies and you can simply download the executable file and run it. If you are trying it for the first time, download the installer now!

Handshaking Line Status and Control

You can now easily see the status of the input handshaking lines and directly set the value of the output lines.

RadioManager allows direct visualization and control of RS-232 handshaking lines

Send Files

It’s now possible to transmit a text file to the radio by dragging the file on to the terminal. Doing so will launch the new “Send File” dialog, which will remain open allowing repeated transmissions of the same file.

File transfer timing can be fine-tuned to support executing command scripts or data transmission tests.

RadioManager can send a file line-by-line with the ability to fine tune transfer timing.

Improved, Responsive Terminal

The terminal has been overhauled to operate smoothly and intuitively. Automatic scrolling works smoothly and is automatically disabled when text is selected. Upon typing or moving the cursor to the bottom of the screen, automatic scrolling will be re-enabled.

RadioManager's Terminal mode can be used as your everyday terminal.

Improved RS-485 Simplex Support

RS-485 simplex support has been improved. RadioManager now automatically detects simplex mode and adapts its radio interaction accordingly.
