Hello again. I have been considering re-writing the SSA PC software

in Microsoft Visual Studio.net. Would be a challenge that I would

love. Any comments from anyone.



Regards

David

Hi David,

I don't know anything about Visual, which is why I chose the Liberty

basic. It is similar to the only thing I know about, Commodore Basic

and Rocky Mountain Basic (used by HP many years ago). If you get

stumped by any of my command lines I wrote in LB, I'll help you out

any way I can.

Scotty

P.S. I don't know anything about Protel, either. Gee, I hate being

so stupid about the latest and greatest stuff!!

My 10cent's worth - DON'T DO THAT! Re-write in Java instead so that it

will be usable by a wider community. I would be very happy to

collaborate if you choose to go down the Java route.

Hi Andy



I was expecting to write software in Visual Studio C++.net. This

would have produced an executable program to run on Windows 98 and

onwards. I was planning a user window.ini styled configuration file

to set up the system SSA specific parameters and configuration data.

This is a plain text and styled file easily edited and

set up by the end user. This way the user does not require a compiler

or programming knowledge. Visual Studio.net does have J##. But I am

not familiar with Java.



Regards

David

I don't use Windows - hence my interest in a Java-based implementation.

However, my SSA is very unfinished as other projects keep pushing it

down the priority list, so my getting excited about software is somewhat

premature! Once I have some working hardware I will probably do a Java

front-end, unless someone else gets there before me.



Regards

Hi All;In my reading in this group there is some discussion of developing Software using other languages like Python.  My background is in Software development for VLSI test systems (Semiconductor Industry) for Intel, Infineon, and some others.  I can write in C (preference), C++, Perl, Python, Ruby..etc.. 
Is there such a group or an offshoot of this one?
Thanks!Guy
PS.. not that I dislike Scotty's Liberty Basic code ... I just dont use Windows very much at all.. Mostly Linux, Mac OSX etc..

There is a yahoo group "spectrum analyzer upgrade" where I have been doing on and off Python work. My C is horribly rusty and we may need help with the Usb hex file.

Hi Jim,

Looking for your group.. no joy. Does it still exist?

I tried many different searches.. no joy.


I did find a PRIVATE github group https://github.com/MSAORG

Python Upgrade group. Looks like not much going on there...



Best Regards;

Guy

The MSA can be driven by an excellent software called myVNA
written by Dave Roberts G8KBB more Windows based. It has to be
registered by Dave for each PC but is free to amateurs.
