Commander Online Help Contents
issue N1MM-style Radio Info messages via UDP to applications running on the host computer, or to applications running on computers connected to the host computer via local area network.
listen for incoming commands conveyed via TCP from applications running on the host computer.
interoperate with the Waterfall Bandmap application via UDP messages
Freq - receive frequency
TXFreq - transmit frequency
RadioNr - primary transceiver number (1-4)
App - DXLab
when the primary transceiver's receive frequency changes
when the primary transceiver's transmit frequency changes
when the primary transceiver's mode changes
when the primary transceiver's Split state changes from disabled to enabled, or from enabled to disabled
when the primary transceiver's Transmitting state changes from Receiving to Transmitting, or from Transmitting to Receiving
when a new primary transceiver is selected
every 10 seconds
an application running on the computer hosting Commander, specify an IP address of
an application running on another computer connected by LAN to the computer hosting Commander, specify the other computer's IP address
multiple applications running on multiple computers connected by LAN to the computer hosting Commander (e.g. all on the same subnet), specify a network address with the subnet address set to
|UDP #||IP Address||Port|
Commander accepts TCP/IP commands at an offset of 2; e.g. if the strong>Base Port is set to 52000, Commander accepts commands via Port 52002
The Default button sets the Base Port to 52000
The Restart button re-initializes TCP command acceptance; after changing the Base Port, click the Restart button
Waterfall Bandmap Service
The Waterfall Bandmap is a separate application developed by Steve N2IC with which Commander can interoperate via UDP messages. It provides a live waterfall display with callsign and frequency spotting information. The Waterfall Bandmap tracks the frequency of your transceiver, and can obtain the callsigns of active DX stations from Commander (which receives them from SpotCollector). Commander provides all the information that the Waterfall Bandmap needs to work with your SDR receiver or sound card I/Q output to synchronize with Commander's primary transceiver. The Waterfall Bandmap works with any radio compatible with LP-PAN (such as the K3), with the FlexRadio Signature series, and with most SDR receivers, such as the Perseus, QS1R, or SDRplay.
In the Waterfall Bandmap Service panel,
check the Enable box to enable interoperation with the Waterfall Bandmap application; the square rectangle to the right of the Enable box will be red if Commander is not receiving messages from the Waterfall Bandmap application, or green if messages are being received.
the Directives IP Address and Reports IP Address specify the IP address of the computer hosting the Waterfall Bandmap application; if the Waterfall Bandmap application is hosted by the same computer that hosts Commander, set both IP addresses to 127.0.0.1
the Directives Port should be set to 13063
the Reports Port should be set to 13064
clicking the Default button sets the Directives IP Address and Reports IP Address to 127.0.0.1, sets the Directives Port to 13063, and sets the Reports Port to 13064.
clicking the Restart button restarts the Waterfall Bandmap service on the specified IP Address and Ports.
