    also... 200khz steps are not acceptable for doing a good RF coordination.....
    25khz steps with a power measurement is what it needs to be...and its what the Signal Hound SA44b Pro audio Power tool does...


    Hi Scott,

    I agree that 200KHz is not optimal for serious work with large coordinations, but it is acceptable for most users' smaller coordinations. It is way better than no scan data at all and is quite effective at helping to avoid interference. However, I use SH <25KHz RBW data in WWB6 by running it through my proprietary file conversion routines before importing.

    Thanks for the tip on 2.18C. I'll ask Justin about it.

    Hi Steve,

    Hmm. Here's a shot in the dark... Can you run Windows in Boot Camp or Parallels? Perhaps editing your file in Excel or Open Office in Windows might resolve the "return" issue when saving as a CSV.

    Good news for you Scott! Signal Hound software update 2.18B now outputs CSV's to a nearly WWB6-friendly format. Here are the tweaks to make it work:
    - You'll need to set up the SH parameters as follows: START 470MHz, STOP 698MHz, PREAMP ON, RBW 250KHz
    - Run a continuous analysis until you are satisfied that the trace is stable, then export as a CSV.
    - Open the CSV with Open Office Calc or Microsoft Excel and delete ROW 1 and COLUMN B, then save as a CSV.
    - You will see that the file contains data in 200KHz steps.
    - You can now import the file into IAS or WWB6 and use it for exclusions and coordination.

    Unfortunately, RBW's finer than 250KHz do not work, because in that case Signal Hound exports the CSV with step spacing as a decimal, rather than an integer value, of KHz. WWB6 doesn't play well with that.

    Hi Steve,

    I opened those files in Notepad, rather than Excel, to see the actual data and formatting.

    Crystal Springs.csv is laid out correctly:
    550.0000,-71.7
    550.1563,-70.9
    550.3125,-71.3
    550.4688,-71.2
    550.6250,-70.9
    550.7813,-71.4
    550.9375,-71.1
    551.0938,-70.7
    551.2500,-71.4
    551.4063,-71.4
    551.5625,-71.1
    551.7188,-71.6
    551.8750,-71.3
    552.0313,-71.3
    552.1875,-71.1
    552.3438,-71.2
    552.5000,-71.7
    552.6563,-71.9
    etc.

    470-698.CSV doesn't list all frequency entries to a consistent number of decimal places, and omits decimal zeroes from integers. Also, it displays as a single long line of text in Notepad, rather than two columns, although it shows two columns in Excel and when I paste it here. Hmmm, very odd... Perhaps the ASCII returns are goofed up?
    470,-76.6
    470.844,-75.7
    471.689,-76.5
    472.533,-75.2
    473.378,-75.8
    474.222,-75.4
    475.067,-75.6
    475.911,-76
    476.756,-75.7
    477.6,-73.6
    478.444,-75.9
    479.289,-75.3
    480.133,-73.5
    480.978,-75.1
    481.822,-75.3
    482.667,-66.3
    483.511,-59.8
    484.356,-74.1
    485.2,-72.9
    486.044,-75.8
    486.889,-74.3
    487.733,-75.4
    etc.

    Would be good if the 'default' Zone was a global zone that didn't act like a seperate zone, but instead anything in the default zone was calculated as if those units were active in all zones simultaneously!
    I have a situation in which this would be very useful too!

    Cheers


    +1 YES!

    Even better, but far more complex for the calculation algorithms, would be a zone properties window, for each zone, with a series of check boxes representing every other zone. Check the boxes of other zones that you want this zone to be intermod calculated with. It would be awesomely powerful and flexible for coordinating large shows that take place in one physical space.

    Maybe a less complex, but also less powerful implementation of such capability could be "master zones" and "sub zones", where sub zones are intermod calculated with all frequencies in their associated master zone, but not with the other sub zones. This would work well for situations where you have a "house band" performing throughout an event, in a master zone, and other "guest acts" that come on and off throughout the show calculated under sub zones.

    Global commands for nearly all receiver, audio and transmitter parameters Properties/Settings.

    "Settings", under Properties, should either always be open or have a user defined default value available in WWB Preferences.

    I would love it if I could enter all of my options into WWB6 and it would tell me what to take on the gig....
    IE
    I need 12ULXD and 13 Senni G3 IEM.... What Frequency Banks should I buy....

    or

    My company has 12 ULXDs in each bank, a 6 PSM1000s in each bank, and 6 Senni IEMs in each bank...
    I need 15 radio mics, and 15 IEMs- what should I use.....


    Hi Reid,

    Until something like that function is added to WWB6, here's a helpful tool from Peter Erskine: http://www.bestaudio.com/_private/downloads/channels.zip

    An alternative feature would be a 'Master' zone whose members are automatically included in every individual zone.

    This would be very useful in many situations!
