Trunking Recorder Installation with Unitrunker

  1. Install and configure Unitrunker with at least 1 working "Voice" following receiver.
  2. Ensure the "Voice" following receiver audio is plugged into the "line-in" input of a sound card or routed using Virtual Audio Cable to a virtual sound card.
  3. Install Trunking Recorder.
  4. Trunking Recorder will try to install the required Remote.dll in Unitrunker v1 automatically. If your Unitrunker data folder is not in the default location you will have to manually install the Remote.dll. See "Unitrunker Remote.dll Installation" instructions below.
  5. Start Trunking Recorder.
  6. Setup a voice recorder for every Voice following receiver/VCO setup in Unitrunker. Each receiver in Unitrunker v1 MUST have a unique "Model" value. If you have multiple Realtek or AirSpy receivers the "Model" value in Unitrunker will need to be edited. If you have a receiver with multiple VCOs you will need to enter the VCO number. (If using Unitrunker v2 each VFO will need a unique "Label" set and the VCO number should be set to 0)Trunking Recorder main window
  7. For each receiver select the sound card that the audio for that receiver can be heard on. Trunking recorder will listen to this sound card and record the audio. If you use a program to decode digital audio such as DSD you should select the audio output of this program and not the digital audio output set in Unitrunker.
  8. If you are using Unitrunker v2 and the built-in digital decoding you point Trunking Recorder to the "Analog" sound card output setup in Unitrunker v2.
  9. If you have your Unitrunker v1 data folder in a different location you will need to specify that location on the General tab of the Configure menu.Trunking Recorder main window

  1. Download UniLogger 1.5
  2. Extract the "Remote.dll" and copy it to the folder that contains the "Unitrunker.xml" (Normally it's "%APPDATA%\UniTrunker")
    Note: The "Remote.dll" is required no matter if you are using a physical scanner or sdrsharp as a voice receiver
  3. Verify that the "sdrsharptrunking.log" file is created and being updated in the same folder as the "Remote.dll".
