    Lightbulb Antenna allignment program

    If you haven't tried this handy utility please do.
    Audible Signal Meter


    I have been working on rooftops with noisy air handling equipment.
    I use a cheap pair of family radio walkie talkies.
    I get the program going put a rubber band around the xmitt switch of the first unit, lay it next to my laptop speaker and drop the other unit in my pocket.
    If you find units with mic/headphone jacks you can plug a audio jumper cable between your lap top and the sending radio and use an earbud on the rec side. This is much better for tower work or inside / outside antenna alignments
    It is amazing how critical the adjustments can be on a PAC Wireless PA 58-24 5.8 panel antenna.
    At 4 city blocks it made 10 dbi signal change by moving less than a half inch.
    I was trying to feed two sectors from the same AP with the best signal I could get.
    I was able to balance the signal so they both got a -68.
    This is more than enough for a couple of Hot Spot sectors.
    This would have been very time consuming without this utility.
    Try it, you'll like it.
    Thank you again Carl.....

    Thumbs up Great Idea....but...

    I've been looking for something like this and am glad that you posted it.

    Unfortunately, shortly (1-2 seconds) after I click the start button it crashes and closes. The signal shows up with no audible...then it crashes. This is a copy of the error message created. I'm using a Dell Latitude C610 running Windows XP.

    EventType : clr20r3 P1 : lnc audible meter.exe P2 :
    P3 : 480bc19b P4 : lnc audible meter P5 : P6 : 480bc19b
    P7 : 3a P8 : 1ad P9 : system.io.filenotfoundexception

    Again...thank you for the post...

    Windows XP SP??? , .NET version ???? You need at least .NET 2.0 (or higher) for program to work properly.

    After XP SP2, there are ~300-400MB of updates.

    Install XP SP3, less updates after only about 20mb and I NEEDED Net 3.0 for the latest version of LNC signal program to even run with my laptop otherwise it would give me a fatal error when you clicked on the get associations button.

    The file not found exception would indicate that you are trying to use voice output and don't have .NET 3.0 installed. You will be able to use the tone outputs until you are able to get .NET 3.0, just be sure to select one of them before you click the start button.
    Why don't we just take the safety labels off everything and see what happens?
