ED-260W Editor for the CAT-260
The CAT-260 Windows Editor offers a monumental break through in repeater controller programming. No endless string of DTMF tones to enter or confusing script files to write. Completely mouse driven, just point and click. Program codes, timers, voice messages and select courtesy tones without ever touching your computer's keyboard.
Use the CAT-260 Setup window to load the editor with default values.
Use the CAT-260 Control Code window to change prefix and code settings. A forced DTMF key selection can also be selected.
Use the CAT-260 Timer window to change both the Long and Short timer settings.
The CAT-260 has sixty-four remote control channels divided into groups of eight zones with eight channels each according to their function. You would use this window to set the control functions of the CAT-260. To change the status of a control channel in the zone, just click on the desired check box.
CW Identification and Muting Tone Selection
Use this window to edit the CW identification message. You can also select the CW tone frequency and speed. Muting tone frequency can also be selected.
A vocabulary list of 470 words carefully selected for amateur repeater operation is available to construct any of 20 different voice messages. Each message can be 15 words in length. Configure your repeater ID and announcements to suit your particular needs.
Eight different courtesy tones can be constructed to generate unique tones during different repeater configurations.
Event and User Macros
Fifty event macros and forty user defined macros are supported in the CAT-260 controller. The window picture below illustrates the user macro display showing event macro 13. A macro review window will display what commands the macro will execute when a courtesy tone event request is issued.
The CAT-260 supports twenty scheduled event time settings. The window below shows some scheduled time settings.
Transferring Data To or From the CAT-260 Controller
After editing the controller parameters with your desired settings, you can upload the data into the CAT-260. If you have changed some parameters by DTMF, you can download the controller parameters into the editor and save your revised data to disk. The window below shows an upload in progress.
CAT-260 Editor works with Microsoft® Windows XP. Vista, Win7, Win8, or Win10. The program resides on about 3MB of hard drive space.
