using this great SDR produced by Microtelecom from Italy!

Looking for a tool for scheduled recordings with Perseus? Try Mestor!

Since 22/01/2011, software version 4.0 is available, which permits to remotely control and listen to other Perseus SDR connected to the internet. Every Perseus SDR owner can make his receiver available to other users on the web. For testing, you can use the client software for 60 days, without having to own a Perseus SDR. Usually there are about 50+ Perseus SDR servers available at the same time, see this map. The current software version 4.0b can be downloaded here: http://microtelecom.it/perseus/Perseusv40b.zip. It comes with complete documentation on Client / Server operation. Another very useful document for network setup is available on the web. A must: the User group. My personal contribution to the hobby are two databases available on the web, one for FM, DAB and TV, the other for medium wave and short wave. Generating files in the userlist format, the latter provides data that can be visualized in Perseus SDR, showing which station currently transmits on the tuned frequency.

» disponibile la versione software 4.0, che permette di controllare ed usare altri Perseus SDR collegati in Internet. Chi possiede un Perseus SDR, lo puo mettere a disposizione per altri utenti. Per fare le prove, si puo usare il software come client per 60 giorni anche senza possedere un Perseus SDR. Sono contemporaneamente disponibile circa 50+ server Perseus SDR, vedi questa mappa. La versione 4.0b si puů scaricare qui: http://microtelecom.it/perseus/Perseusv40a.zip. La documentazione fornita contiene tutte le indicazione per la operazione Client / Server. In rete esiste anche un ulteriore documento per il setup in rete, che ť molto utile. Da consigliare: lo User group. Il mio contributo personale al mondo del radioascolto sono due database in rete, una per le radio in FM, DAB e le TV, e l'altra per le onde medie e onde corte. Generando file nel formato userlist, quest'ultima fornisce dati che si possono visualizzare in Perseus SDR, mostrando le radio che trasmettono attualmente sulla frequenza sintonizzata.

I was almost going to sell my PCR-1000, but now I use it is a portable, universal downconverter. There is no DX on this recording, but you can see how crowded the FM spectrum in Italy is. Listening with the FM mode of the original Perseus software is little joy, so I strongly recommend to use WRplus 1.03. The FM bandscan of the listening location is here.
