Activity Logger Plugin

The FMSuite Activity Logger is a free plugin designed for use within the SDR Sharp software application.  It records scanner activity created by the Frequency Manager + Scanner plugin in a CSV-formatted file.

The Activity Logger listens for activity from the Frequency Manager + Scanner plugin.  When the scanner stops on a frequency the following data are written to the file.  Each row in the log represents one start time + end time + frequency event.


  • Reception Start    (date and time)
  • Reception End    (date and time)
  • Frequency (in Hertz)
  • Center (in Hertz)
  • Description (from the Frequency Manager database if present)
  • Notes (from the Frequency Manager database if present)
  • Protocol (from the Frequency Manager database if present)
  • Service (from the Frequency Manager database if present)
  • Call Sign (from the Frequency Manager database if present)
  • Shift Enabled
  • Shift
  • Filter Type
  • Filter Bandwidth
  • Squelch Enabled
  • Squelch
  • CW Shift
  • Timeout Seconds (setting from the scanner)
  • Minimum Signal Strength (setting from the scanner)
  • Actual Signal Strength
  • Log Reason (Timeout, Watchdog, or Skip button)

The logs are written in CSV format with double-quotes around text fields to have the highest level of compatibility with other applications.
