    Deleting Backup Frequencies


    Backup frequencies allow you to coordinate additional frequencies to switch out with your primary devices in the case of RF interference. Backup frequency management is a new feature to Wireless Workbench 6.

    What are Backup Frequencies?

    For a primer on what backup frequencies are and how they can be utilized, read the Adding Backup Frequencies page.


    Backup frequencies are not displayed in the Inventory view. They are displayed in the Channel Summary dialog. To access this dialog, navigate to the Frequency Coordination tab, and select the "Manage Channels..." button from the top right corner of the right sidebar.


    The Channel Summary dialog is where channels are specified to either receive new frequencies, or remain on their current values for the next coordination. It is also where you can manage your backup frequencies.

    Active Devices (items listed in your inventory) are listed in the top portion of the Channel Summary dialog, while backup frequencies are listed in the bottom portion.


    Deleting Backup Frequencies

    To delete backup frequencies, simply select them from the list such that the frequency row is outlined with a dotted line, and press the key. You can also right click on any row and select "Delete selected backup frequencies".


    The backup frequency will be removed from the Channel Summary dialog, and no longer be a requested frequency for the next coordination.

      when i removed mikes from my inventory, the backup frequencies remained. when i deleted them from the "Channel Summary" they still show up in the "Frequency list"

      i think it would be cool for backup frequenices to be removed automatically if there are no active units of the same band in the "Inventory"

      It took me a bit to figure out the difference between active frequencies in the Spectrum Manager and requested frequencies in Wireless Workbench.

      What I discovered is that after I right-click delete a frequency in the channel summary, there are only two options: 'Refresh' and 'Cancel'. 'OK' does not seem to be an option because it is greyed out. 'Refresh' will restore the list to what it was before deleting, so I make sure I don't click that. So I need to 'Cancel' to close the Channel Summary window. Then to empty out the ACTIVE FREQUENCIES in the spectrum manager, I need to recalculate the frequencies. I make sure that in the Channel Summary window I have UN-selected everything so it will not alter my existing coordination, and then after I recalculate it will say 'Found zero of zero backup frequencies' and the active backup frequencies in Spectrum Manager are now empty.
