Creating a Radio Database
Each Trig stack radio comes with a Trig USB. Each stick contains a sample database file. You can create your own unique frequency database with up to 200 saved channels. A PC or laptop is required with a USB port to configure and load the USB stick. Follow the simple instructions below to create your own frequency database.
- How do I create a radio database using a PC?
You can make your own database by using a PC.
Once the USB is plugged into the PC, open the CSV file that is saved on the memory stick. This file can be opened with either a text editor or spread sheet application, such as Microsoft Excel.
This file has a few sample frequencies already saved. Follow the same convention as the sample frequency’s and add all radio channels that you would like.
Once you are happy with your database, you can save this to your Trig memory stick.
You must save your spreadsheet to your Trig USB as a csv. file called TRIGCOM.CSV
- How do I upload my radio frequency database to my Trig radio?
Once you are happy with your database, save this to your memory stick.
To load the database into your radio, you need to put the memory stick into your radio’s USB port when the unit is turned off.
When the radio is then powered on, it detects the USB stick and will offer to save or load your database, select ‘Load USB data to radio.’
If there are data entries already on your radio you will be offered the choice to replace the whole database, or add entries from the USB stick.
Scroll through your options by tuning the kHz knob. MEM allows you to select the highlighted option.
To finish loading your database, switch the radio off, remove the USB device and turn the radio back on.
In normal radio operation, the USB port is powered off.
