Please read the complete, unedited December 2000 Monitoring Times
comparison of RadioMax versus three more expensive competitors products.
The independent test results are very interesting! One of the competitors
products was so unreliable and unpredictable it was deemed not worth even
attempting to test. Another can barely scan faster than the radio by itself (RadioMax
runs rings around this one, being 125% faster). The last one, costing well over
three times as much as RadioMax, put in a fair performance at a good scanning
speed. RadioMax can also scan at this speed - if you slow it down!. RadioMax
flies by this one too, scanning 50% faster for less than 28% of the cost. Again,
please read the complete, unedited comparison, download and test the demos for
yourself (actually, I wouldn't even bother with one of them), then call Data
Delivery Devices LLC to order RadioMax!
RadioMax allows any PC running Windows to
drastically improve the performance of radios and scanners, providing fully
automated control of the radio (plus tape recorder if desired) allowing
unattended scanning, logging, speech and tape recorder control. RadioMax is
designed to control radios by AOR, DRAKE, ICOM, KENWOOD, LOWE, OPTOELECTRONICS,
RADIO SHACK and UNIDEN.
Some of the many features:
- Discover the ease and power of using a
high speed, graphics orientated receiver control program. Click and point (or
use the keyboard!) for instant control of almost everything. Exceptional
speed, e.g. From disk load 5000 frequencies, display and automatically scale
the graph then begin scanning in less than 0.5 second. Sort 5000 frequencies
in less than a second. Import frequency files with millions of frequencies.
Zoom and re-scale the graph in less than 0.1 of a second. RadioMax is FAST!!
- Multiple copies of RadioMax may be run
on the same PC at the same time, each controlling a different radio, while
concurrently running other programs. Got 6 radios and 6 comm ports? Use them
all at the same time!
- Supports automated time / date stamps,
hits counts, autologging, history files, manual and automatic lockouts for
birdies, priority channel, adjustable squelch trigger level, etc. etc.
- Powerful scan delays and monitor time
controls allow intelligent scanning; preventing hangs and lost signals.
Quickly jump, change direction, pause, slide up and down the tuning range with
simple mouse movements.
- A tape recorder with remote control
capability may be controlled by RadioMax, programmable by channel. The control
algorithms are intelligent, effectively removing tape dead time.
- The sound card may also be used to
record the radios audio, automatically and selectively by intelligent routines
effectively removing tape dead time. Play back the audio while scanning at
full speed - just click on a past hit to hear the audio!. If the PC has a
recent soundcard (duplex capable) RadioMax can play back previous audio while
recording a new hit at the same time!. A 'Manual Wave' button also allows
immediate recording with the Soundcard, for instant access whenever required.
- Simple, easy to use built in editors
allow the user to change any channel parameters simply by clicking on the
screen. Global channel parameters may easily be modified again by mouse
selections. Some radios support direct channel uploading and downloading.
- PC's equipped with a sound card may
directly generate speech for the hit frequencies and time programmable by
channel; imagine the possibilities when also using a tape. Speech may even use
your own voice!
- RadioMax has Multi File (Bank) Scanning
capability. It uses plain ASCII format files but can also import/export UDBF
format (PerCon) dBase files, and import Betty Bearcat DBF, Mr Scaner DBF and
ASCII text files. No need to pay for an extra cost "conversion" program
- High resolution graphics constantly
display ALL activity, position, locked channels, hits, real time squelch
status, hit history etc. RadioMax may scan, sort and save by multiple
parameters such as frequencies, hits, comments. "Zoom In" to see detailed hit
activity, or have RadioMax automatically scale the display.
Use the sound card to automatically record the radios audio, using
features built right into RadioMax!. No need to fool around with 'sound editors'
or expensive add-on 'options'. Unlike some other scanning programs, RadioMax
lets you hear recorded audio while scanning at full speed
Play back recorded audio while scanning at full speed. Just
left click on the hit in the history window !
To stop playing back the recorded audio just right click in
the history window !
If you dont want to save a particular audio hit any more just
double right click on it in the history window and its deleted!
Built in, always active manually controlled 'Instant Wave
Record' capability plus automatic by channel recording!
With most sound cards RadioMax can even play back old audio hits and record
new ones at the same time !!!
