Several RDS data sources are provided for live RDS decoding:

  • Serial COM Port – Data and Clock – Data and Clock signals must be converted using a simple circuit. This ensures compatibility with all RS232 ports and USB to RS232 adapters.
  • Sound card – Data and Clock – The Data and Clock signals are fed to your sound card’s recording line input.
  • Sound card – RDS Encoder – For RDS encoder output data analysis. The RDS encoder output is fed to the sound card through a simple half-wave rectifier circuit.
  • Sound card – Direct MPX or RDS input – The RDS or MPX signal is fed directly to the sound card input. The sound card must support 192 kHz sampling rate for recording.
  • ASCII G Protocol – RDS Decoder / FM Analyzer – Measuring device (for example P275) connected either via RS232/USB or Ethernet.
  • ASCII G Protocol – RDS Encoder – RDS encoder with remote output monitoring feature (for example P132), connected either via RS232/USB or Ethernet.
  • (No source) – The software provides offline playback feature only.
