    I have downloaded artemin and database without problem. I unpacked them to there own folders and moved them to my comms directory on my drive. I run artemin from my drive and it seems to be working however I do not know how to use it. Can you supply info on how to use this software or is there perhaps a manual some where to explain. Thanks Ron

    Hi Ron, unfortunately, I never felt the need to write a manual because Artemis usage is really simple (the available options are limited to few choices)…it’s like a big list of signals and to help the recognition of a particular one I’ve implemented some filters based on the most commonly used parameters such as frequency, bandwidth, transmission type, modulation, etc…but, of course, if you have something particular in mind, feel free to ask ;)

    ok, no instruction manual, no direction except to download it. does anyone have working knowledge of how to get started…. seems like it been asked and the response is ///// oh not necessary since I know and wrote it… someone get me started i I will write the instruction manual!

    Hi Mike,

    It is fairly intuitive.

    Download the Artemis application files into a suitable new folder.
    Download the Data files into the same folder.
    Run Artemis click on the ‘Main’ tab at the top and Load DB (database).
    A list of data types should now populate the left hand pane of the screen.
    Clicking on an individual data mode in the left hand pane should bring up further details of the selected mode.

    To narrow down to a particular type use the search filters.
    Select the filter tab at the top and select quick search.
    You can select a frequency range and also a signal bandwidth.
    Tick the apply filter boxes as required and set suitable values for the signal you wish to identify.
    Click the magnifying glass search bar at the bottom.
    A new sorted list of the most likely types of transmission will now be listed in the left hand pane.

    There are also other predefined search tools shown as tabs at the top of the page that allow you top sort signals by frequency, bandwidth and other single parameters.

    The easiest way to identify unusual signals is to look at the spectrogram displays compare them against the signal you are trying to identify.

    If you don’t have a receiver that can display a spectrogram you could try using one of the many web sdr’s listed on these two sites that have such facilities.

    http://websdr.org/
    http://rx.linkfanel.net/

    I can particularly recommend http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/ and http://southwest.ddns.net:8073/ as being two good web sdr’s

    Artemis also has some other useful features such as a propagation indicator and link to the Global frequency database etc. But I guess you just wanted to understand the basic functionality to get you started, so I won’t detail these here.

    I hope that helps.

    Regards,
