SYNOPSISpcr [options] [frequency | start_freq stop_freq freq_step]
qpcr1k [options] [frequency | start_freq stop_freq freq_step]
DESCRIPTIONThis manual page documents briefly the pcr and qpcr1k commands. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
pcr is a console program, and qpcr1k is an X GUI program that controls an Icome PCR-1000 receiver. That receiver is designed to be controlled via a serial port connection.
OPTIONSA summary of options is included below.
- -v <vol>
- Set volume, integer values from 0-99, default 70.
- Turn on scan mode
- Turn on AGC
- Turn on noise blanker
- Turn on RF Attenuator
- -h <holdpoint>
- Set hold point, integer 0-255, default 80
- -w <wait>
- Set wait tme, positive integers, default 5
- -t <sqtone>
- Set tone squelch frequency
- -q <squelch>
- Set squelch, integer 0-99, default 40
- -f <bw>
- Set filter bandwidth, 3, 6, 15, 50, and 230, default 15 kHz
- -p <serial_port>
- Specify port the radio is attached to, default /dev/pcr1000
- -u <logfile>
- Switch on unattended mode, using specified log file.
- -l <logfile>
- Switch on replay mode, using specified logfile
- -m <mode>
- Specify mode: LSB, USB, AM, CW, NFM, WFM
These options may be followed by a frequency in MHz to tune the radio, or - if the scanning mode is set by the -s option, then start, stop frequencies in MHz and step frequency in kHZ must be specified.
pcr -p/dev/ttyS0 -v70 -q40 -f15 -mnfm -w10 146.52
lower_freq = Lower frequency in megahertz
upper_freq = Upper frequency in megahertz
step_freq = Step frequency in kilohertz
pcr -p/dev/ttyS0 -v70 -q40 -f15 -mnfm -h70 -u2m.log -s 144 148 5
<logfile> = File name of old log to replay
pcr -p/dev/ttyS0 -v70 -q40 -f15 -mnfm -h70 -l 2m.log
