GNKFDB uses only standard Windows user controls; it therefore does not require special OCX or dynamic link libraries to be installed. As a consequence the installation is extremely simple and (hopefully) robust. The distribution archive is very small.
The "Super Frequency List" CD published by Klingenfuss Publications contains a broadcast station database and a utility station database. Both databases can only be displayed using a program contained on the CD. So GNKFDB will make use of the Klingenfuss display program and will not replace it.
GNKFDB establishes a one way link from the Klingenfuss database display program to the receiver control program. Whenever a database entry is copied to the clipboard in the Klingenfuss program, GNKFDB will recognize that copy process and either tune the receiver control program to the frequency of the copied entry or GNKFDB will create or find the corresponding entry in the station file of the receiver control program. The station file entry will be created if an entry with that frequency does not yet exist; if an entry with that frequency exists, its parameters will be used to tune the receiver. The mode of operation can be chosen in the GNKFDB dialog window.
In contrast to the GNPDB program there is no possibility to search the frequency the receiver is tuned to in the Klingenfuss database.
In order that the connection works, all three programs (Klingenfuss database display program, receiver control program and GNKFDB) must be running. The GNKFDB program can however be minimized; it will still work.
The current version of GNKFDB is 1.02.
In version 1.02 it is now possible to set the name of the receiver control program in the main window of GNKFDB.
The program GNKFDB may be used
free of charge.
