INTRODUCTION
INTRODUCTION
Welcome to AOR Searchlight, the control program for Microsoft® WindowsTM and AOR
communications receivers.
This program uses an RS-232 serial port to tune an AOR AR-3000A or AR-3000
communications receiver and has these (and many more) exciting features:
F
Microsoft® WindowsTM program. AOR Searchlight is a genuine
WindowsTM program (not a DOS program running in a window) and uses
Microsoft’s Multiple Document Interface (MDI) and Common User Access
(CUA) specifications for ease of use and a standard “look and feel”.
F
Full support for WindowsTM Sound Recording. This program (optionally) uses the sound recording facilities of WindowsTM Multimedia
extensions. You can record audio from your radio using your WindowsTM
compatible sound card while scanning or analysing frequencies. A log
contains all the recordings you have made so you can replay them later.
F
On-line context sensitive help. The full WindowsTM hypertext help system
is used to provide you with the information you need wherever you are in
AOR Searchlight. In addition to the help menu, all dialogs have a “help”
push button which calls up information for that dialog. You can also
highlight individual menu options using the arrow keys and obtain help on
them by pressing <F1>.
F
Unlimited number of disk based memory banks. Each memory bank
contains 400 memory channels and can be uploaded from the radio or
downloaded to the radio. Up to 10 can be viewed on-screen at once, an
unlimited number can be stored on disk.
F
Upgrade your DOS based AORSC memory files. You can import your
existing AOR Spectrum Coordinator (AORSC) memory files into the AOR
Searchlight using a simple utility provided as standard.
F
Copy data to/from clipboard. You can exchange memory data with
WindowsTM Clipboard for bulk editing and export to a data base (not
supplied) or other WindowsTM applications.
F
Memory scan and Programmable Band Scan. Each scan provides a
histogram display showing the activity on each channel. Full control is
provided including a cursor indicator and sound recording (optional).
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 1
INTRODUCTION
F
Single Frequency Watch. This includes graphical analysis showing full
statistics compiled as the SFW is in progress and includes text based reports
and a log file.
F
Spectrum analysis. A fully featured spectrum analyser display is provided
which allows you to review signals using cursor operated tuning. You can
have the results of several spectrum analyses available on-screen at once.
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 2
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
AOR Searchlight has been developed over a year using the Borland Turbo Pascal for
WindowsTM development system. The result is a genuine WindowsTM program, not a DOS
program running inside a window. AOR Searchlight is a substantial program offering a comprehensive range of facilities that may take a while to fully explore (there are nearly 17000 lines of
source code in the main program). This package takes radio control software forward to new
standards of performance and adds features never offered before.
It would not have been possible to complete this undertaking without the considerable help
and support from AOR (UK) Ltd. I would like to thank AOR (UK) Ltd, and in particular Richard
Hillier, for the support and feedback provided during the development of AOR Searchlight and
for the generous loan of radio equipment.

INSTALLING THE PROGRAM
INSTALLING THE PROGRAM
In these instructions, it is assumed that you are familiar with the way WindowsTM
works, so there are few details included about using WindowsTM itself. If you need more
information, you should consult your WindowsTM User’s Guide or run the WindowsTM tutorial that
is available from program manager (under the Help|Windows Tutorial menu option).
You should install and use AOR Searchlight using Microsoft® WindowsTM in enhanced
mode. If you already have WindowsTM in enhanced mode (this is the default), you can proceed.
If not, consult your WindowsTM User’s Guide to find out how to configure WindowsTM for
enhanced mode.
You must have Microsoft® WindowsTM running in enhanced mode for AOR
Searchlight to run.
To install AOR Searchlight, start WindowsTM (usually by typing “WIN <ENTER> at the
DOS prompt) and bring the program manager window to the top so that you can see it clearly.
There are two simple ways to install AOR Searchlight. First insert the distribution disk
into drive A then...
Either...
Click on the File menu of program manger and select the Run... option.
Type “A:\INSTALL.EXE<ENTER>” into the dialog.
Or...
Use file manager to list the files on drive A and double-click on the line with
“INSTALL.EXE” on it.
Either method can be used, but you should obtain the window shown below on your
screen:
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 5
INSTALLING THE PROGRAM
Two push buttons are provided inside the window. You can abort the installation by
clicking on the “Quit” push button (or by pressing <Q>). Alternatively, to decompress and copy
the program files onto your hard disk, click on the “Install...” push button (or press <I>).
If you want to obtain help on the installation program, you can click on the Help menu option in
the top right hand corner of the window.
If you are proceeding with the installation, you will now be asked to type in the name of
a directory on your hard disk for the program files (you will need approximately 2 MByte of
space). The default directory name is “C:\SEARCH”, but you can change it by typing in an
alternative into the dialog that is displayed.
The dialog looks like that shown above. If you want to keep the default directory for the
AOR Searchlight files, just click on the OK push button. If you want to change it, you can type in
an alternative name and then click on OK (if the directory does not already exist, it will be
created).
Once you have selected a directory for the AOR Searchlight files, they are decompressed
and copied onto your system in a few moments.
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 6
INSTALLING THE PROGRAM
NOTE: The installation program does not alter your WindowsTM “.INI” initial
settings files; it uses its own. The file is called “SEARCH.INI” and is located in the AOR
Searchlight directory.
The installation program creates a new group in program manager and adds the
AOR Searchlight icons to it. The program group contains all the items you need to use the
package and looks like:
Where each icon is as follows:
The main AOR Searchlight program
An invitation to send us your comments
Some useful guidance on RS-232 interfacing
The AOR Spectrum Coordinator (AORSC) memory upgrade utility
The “READ.ME” file
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 7
INSTALLING THE PROGRAM
At the end of the installation process the new program group will be displayed in
program manager. You can re-size the AOR Searchlight group window or minimise it if you
wish.
When the installation procedure is finished you are ready to connect your radio
and start using the software.
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 8
GETTING STARTED
GETTING STARTED
RS-232 connection
You must connect your radio to an RS-232 port of your computer before you can
operate the software. A screened cable with 5 conductors is required for connecting the PC to the
receiver. If you have previously been using the DOS program AOR Spectrum Coordinator
(AORSC), you can use the same cable.
If screened cable is not used then digital noise may radiate from the conductors of
the cable and cause interference to reception. All cable connections should be high quality
for durability.
Configure the serial cable according to the diagram given below:

If you are using an AR-3000, pin 1 and pin 7 must be shorted together at the radio’s
end of the cable. The cable should be one-to-one (as shown) for the AR-3000A.
If you are using a 9-way connector, please refer to your computer manual for details of
the pin connections (this may vary between manufacturers). One possible pinout is listed below
(this is for the PTI-209 I/O card, which is quite common):

You should match the pin numbers for the PC 25w D-Type (female) in the table to those
for your 9-way connector and make the cable accordingly.
To check operation of the RS-232 connection between the radio and your PC, you can
use WindowsTM Terminal to type in commands manually (AR-3000A owners only). Please read
section 6.6 of your AR-3000A Instruction Manual for suitable commands. A configuration file
for Terminal, called “RADIO.TRM”, is located in your AOR Searchlight directory (it sets up
Terminal for 4800 baud on COM1). You can pick up this configuration file by selecting it from
the File|Open... menu option of WindowsTM Terminal then use this standard WindowsTM
utility to test the cable connection. You may need to alter the configuration if you are using
slightly different RS-232 settings. If so, select the Settings|Communications... menu
option of WindowsTM Terminal to alter the serial port parameters.
Starting the program
Before starting the program, please read the “READ.ME” file for last minute information
or changes not covered by this manual. This is accessible from the AOR Searchlight program
group; you just need to double-click on the “READ ME FIRST!” icon.
To start AOR Searchlight, first run WindowsTM (if it is not already running), switch on
your radio then check your RS-232 cable is connected properly and switch “ON” the remote
RS-232 switch on the rear panel of the radio (AR-3000A owners only).
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 10
GETTING STARTED
Remote switch
Now open the AOR Searchlight group using program manager and double-click on the
main program icon (which looks like an AOR radio).
The program will then launch and display a copyright notice before opening it’s main
window if all is well. The software should tune the radio to 145.5 MHz FMN as default.
If your radio does not tune to 145.5 MHz, it may be because you have not configured
AOR Searchlight for the right serial port or baud rate.
Configuring the program
To check the configuration of the program, select the Setup|Communications
menu option and choose the options you require from the dialog that is displayed (see below):
You can choose: the type of radio you are using (either AR-3000 or AR-3000A); the
speed of RS-232 communications; the serial port. Make sure all these settings match your
hardware. In the dialog above, AOR Searchlight has been setup for 4800 baud to an AR-3000A
connected via serial port COM2.
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 11
GETTING STARTED
AOR Searchlight will store these settings, for use next time the program is run, in the
“SEARCH.INI” initial setting file which is maintained automatically by the program.
Correct operation of the software is only guaranteed at 4800 baud
The Front Panel Window
Once you have the program running and properly configured, you can check that your
radio and computer are working correctly using the front panel window. This contains a dual
VFO display and an array of manually controls for tuning the radio. The front panel window
looks like:
You can select VFO A or VFO B using the A and B push buttons.
To tune the radio to a specific frequency, click the numeric push buttons in the bottom
right corner of the window (C clears and ENT is enter). The mode can be selected using the group
of six radio buttons located in the box below the frequency display (just click on the mode you
want so that there is a dot inside the circle).
Example: To tune to 93 MHz FMW
Click on 9, 3, ENT and select the correct mode by clicking on the FMW radio button with your
mouse
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 12
GETTING STARTED
If the front panel window is focused (highlighted) it will also respond to keyboard
commands.
Example: To tune to 90.8 MHz
Press <9>, <0>, <.>, <8>, <ENTER>. You must select the mode using your mouse.
Front Panel functions
Step Tuning
You can tune up or down in steps using the UP and DN push buttons. The
current step size is shown in the box in the bottom left hand corner of the
window.
Tuning Step Size
To alter the tuning step size, click on the + and - push buttons.
User Step Size
If none of the step sizes already provided are suitable, you can enter your
own using the U-Step push button.
Type in the step size you want (in kHz).
Example: To enter a user step size of 6.25 kHz
Type “6.25 <ENTER>” and click on OK.
VFO Offset
You can offset VFO A and B by a fixed amount. After clicking on the
Offset push button, the following dialog is opened:
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 13
GETTING STARTED
Enter an offset (in kHz) and click on OK. If the offset is negative, VFO B is
offset below VFO A. If positive, VFO B is above VFO A.
NOTE: The VFO offset function is intended to be used in
association with VFO tracking.
VFO Tracking
VFO tracking allows you to link the two VFOs together so that the
offset between them kept is constant. Click on the TRACKING check box
so that there is a cross in the box to switch on VFO tracking.
Attenuator
Click on the ATTENUATOR check box to toggle the radio’s attenuator. The
attenuator is on when there is a cross in the check box.
Obtaining Help
There is extensive help information available at all times throughout AOR Searchlight.
There is a help push button in most dialogs which gives you full context sensitive help, or you
can get help from the menu along the top of the AOR Searchlight window.
NOTE: Specific help on using WindowsTM Help can be obtained by selecting the
Help|Using Help menu option from within AOR Searchlight.
Once you are running WindowsTM Help, you can read instructions for each feature of the
program as you go along. A full list of the main features of AOR Searchlight is available from the
Help menu of the program. All you need to do is select the option you need from the menu and
read the contents of the help window that appears.
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 14
GETTING STARTED
The topics that are available from the Help menu are shown below:
The index contains a complete list of all the main help topics that are available. You can
obtain help on any of the topics listed by selecting them with the mouse. Alternatively, you can
list and search for information on topics using the search facility of WindowsTM Help (by clicking
on the “Search” push button once WindowsTM Help is running).

MEMORY MENU OPTIONS
MEMORY MENU OPTIONS
Memory data is organised by AOR Searchlight into banks of 400 channels. Each
bank is stored on disk in a file and is displayed on-screen inside a window. Up to ten banks can
be loaded into the program at once; there is no limit to the number of memory bank files that can
be saved on disk (disk space permitting).
When you start AOR Searchlight for the first time, no memory banks are displayed
but you will be able to create a new (blank) bank using the Memory|New menu option. To
create a new bank, click your mouse on the Memory menu (in the top left hand corner of the
AOR Searchlight window). You should see the following Memory menu options:
Some of the menu items are “greyed” out. This happens throughout AOR
Searchlight when options are not available. In the example above only options that allow you to
create or load a memory bank are enabled because there are no banks already open (eg it does not
make sense to print a memory bank if there are none to print).
NOTE: Most Memory menu options only operate on focused (highlighted) memory
bank windows (eg when you select print, AOR Searchlight will print the focused memory
bank window).
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 17
MEMORY MENU OPTIONS
New Bank
To create a new (blank) memory bank, click on the New Bank menu option.

This is the delay between S-meter commands being sent to the radio and
the program attempting to read the signal level. It gives the radio time to
obtain the S-meter reading.
Downloading
This is the period of time between download commands and gives the radio
time to add previous data to local memory before the next arrives.
Uploading
This is the period of time between upload commands and allows the radio
time to prepare memory data for output to the computer.
Tuning
This is the delay between tuning commands and lets the radio finish tuning
before the next command arrives.
In all cases, you probably do not need to alter the default values that are provided.
If you have problems with frequencies being missed or data being corrupted during uploading/
downloading operations, try altering the delay settings.
You should try very small changes at first, usually by increasing the delays.
The setting of these delays can be very sensitive. If you do need to change
them, you may need to experiment very carefully with a number of settings. First make sure
you are adjusting the right control, then slowly alter it’s setting in very small steps until the
problem goes away.
If you want to restore the current default values before closing the dialog, click on
the Default push button.

SETUP MENU OPTIONS
Sound Recording
Further details of the requirements for sound recording are given in the SOUND
RECORDING section.
NOTE: This setup menu option is greyed out if you do not have a sound card and
suitable MCI driver installed on your system.
If you have a WindowsTM compatible sound card fitted, you can use the sound
recording facilities of AOR Searchlight. Many functions of the program let you record up to 60
seconds of audio and make automatic entries in a sound log. The maximum time limit has been
carefully chosen to prevent your hard disk being filled up quickly while allowing the most useful
parts of transmissions to be recorded.
You can open the following dialog using the Setup|Sound Recording menu
option or by clicking on the Sound... push button inside other selected dialogs:
To adjust the maximum recording time, use the scroll bar to obtain the required
period of time in the box on the right. Sound recording is not enabled until you have checked the
Enable Sound Recording check box.
Sample Rate Select
Further details of the requirements for sound recording are given in the SOUND
RECORDING section.
NOTE: This setup menu option is greyed out if you do not have a sound card and
suitable MCI driver installed on your system.
Sound recording involves setting up your sound card’s sample rate and number of
bits per sample. The most efficient sample rate for communications quality audio from your radio
is 8 kHz (giving a 4 kHz bandwidth) with 8-bit resolution. This combination provides fairly low
quality reproduction compared with higher rates, but uses the least amount of disk space.
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 28
SETUP MENU OPTIONS
Not all WindowsTM compatible cards support 8 kHz sampling at 8-bits since this is
not a standard WindowsTM format, but it is included with AOR Searchlight as an option. If you
want to use this compact sound recording format, use the Setup|Sample Rate Select
option to open the following dialog:
Select the format you want using the radio buttons provided in the dialog. The
default for your card is normally 11.025 kHz or 22.050 kHz depending on it’s specification.
You can test your sound card using the Rec button inside the sound log window.
If the log refuses to record audio, your card does not support this special setting.
NOTE: You may be able to obtain an update to the driver for your sound card, which
will support 8 kHz 8-bit sampling, by contacting the vendor you obtained the card from.

TOOLS MENU OPTIONS
TOOLS MENU OPTIONS
The Tools menu provides two radio monitoring tools and facilities for managing
the sound log. The menu options are:
Offset Simplex Reconstruction
This is a special tool for intelligently tuning the radio between two simplex
frequencies that carry different halves of the same conversation. Offset simplex reconstruction
does not work with full duplex transmissions.
You should setup VFOs A and B for operation on the two frequencies of interest
then select the Tools|Offset Simplex Reconstruction (OSR) menu option. The
main window of AOR Searchlight should look similar to:
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 37
TOOLS MENU OPTIONS
In the above picture, a pair of frequencies has been chosen and OSR started. The
dialog in the middle of the window is open while OSR is operating. The four push buttons
provide the following functions:
Stop
Dwell...
Sound...
Help...
Stop the OSR
Setup a dwell time for the switching function
Open the sound recording dialog
Obtain help on OSR
Setting the dwell time
The dwell time is the period of time after AOR Searchlight switches frequency
before reverting back because no signal was found. You can set the dwell time
using the following dialog:
Use the scroll bar to set the dwell period you want (the current value appears
in the box).
Single Frequency Watch
Single Frequency Watch (SFW) is a tool for monitoring activity on a fixed
channel for a long period of time. You can obtain statistics on the occupancy of the channel and
use sound recording to store transmissions on disk.
When you setup an SFW, you open the following dialog:
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 38
TOOLS MENU OPTIONS
You can enter the period (in minutes) between reports that contain simple analyses
of channel activity. You can also direct reports to a file for examination off-line and synchronise
reports so that they occur at specific times.
Do not include a file extension if you want report files to be produced.
AOR Searchlight creates three files each with a different extension.
Report synchronisation
Reports are synchronised to specific times when the Synchronise check box
has a cross in it.
Example: To produce synchronised reports at 15 minute intervals
Enter 15 into the Report Period box and check the Synchronise check
box. Reports are then produced at 00, 15, 30 and 45 minutes past each hour (if the
reports are not synchronised, they are produced at regular intervals starting from
the time the SFW started).
When a SFW is in progress, the Single Frequency Watch dialog window is open.
Your AOR Searchlight main window should look similar to:
The dialog window contains three push buttons:
Sound...
Help...
Stop
Open the sound recording dialog

AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 45
SOUND RECORDING
SOUND RECORDING
Sound recording and playback is provided by WindowsTM using a Media Control
Interface (MCI) driver for a sound card (eg Creative Labs Sound BlasterTM 2.0).
AOR Searchlight uses MCI to provide the sound log facility, so you must have a suitable sound
card (recognised by WindowsTM) installed for it to work.
AOR Searchlight does not work with the Microsoft® speaker driver; you must have a
WindowsTM supported sound card installed!
The picture above illustrates that you simply need to connect your radio to the line input
of your sound card to record audio. A 3.5 mm plug and screened cable can be used to transfer the
audio signal from the headphones socket on the front panel of the radio to the sound card. You
will then need to set the volume knob to between 8 o’clock and 12 o’clock to adjust the audio to
the right level (some experimentation may be required).
A suitable WindowsTM MCI driver will be provided with the sound card you buy. You
should install your sound card according to the instructions that come with it. AOR Searchlight
has no special requirements, but you should test the sound card to make sure it is working in your
system before using it with this program.
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 46
SOUND RECORDING
There is an option in the Setup menu or AOR Searchlight to use 8 kHz sampling with
8-bit resolution. This is a format that is not supported by all sound cards, but produces the
smallest files (and the lowest quality audio). You should use this if you are short of disk space.
Not all sound cards support 8 kHz sampling. Please check with the supplier of your
sound card if you are considering using this option when purchasing a card.
If you have an MCI sound driver installed, it will be detected automatically by the
program when AOR Searchlight is launched. Some menu options relating to sound options will
be “greyed” and the sound log window is missing if the driver is not present.
NOTE: You can also use the standard WindowsTM utilities Sound Recorder and Media
Player to replay recordings made by AOR Searchlight.
Sound Log Window
If you have a sound card correctly installed, the sound log window will be created when
you launch AOR Searchlight. The sound log window looks like:
A row of six push buttons along the top of the sound log window provide all the
functions you need to record and replay sound log entries manually. Each log entry is listed in
the box in the lower half of the window.
NOTE: Most sound log push button functions apply to the highlighted entry.
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 47
SOUND RECORDING
The push buttons inside the sound log window have the following functions:
P_all
Play
Stop
Pause
Skip
Rec
Play all the entries in the sound log from the highlighted one

ADDENDUM - Copy Protection
ADDENDUM TO AOR SEARCHLIGHT MANUAL
Copy Protection
AOR Searchlight is now copy protected. The protection does not use a dongle or
other cumbersome devices, however, there are a few simple points that you may need to
refer to. Please read this section carefully.
AOR Searchlight is now copy protected using a system which places two “tokens” on
your hard disk when you install the program. The program will only work on the disk you
installed it to. There is no dongle or key-disk, so once installed the program runs completely
normally and you will not be inconvenienced (unlike other schemes).
Specific points to remember:
1. The distribution disk contains two tokens. You cannot transfer the program to another machine
without moving the token back onto the original distribution disk then re-installing. The token
can easily be moved with the program that is provided. Contact your distributor if you need
additional copies of the software.
2. You should keep you original disk in a safe place away from strong magnetic fields, high
humidity or other environmental conditions that could damage it. You will not be able to reinstall the software or move it to another machine without the original distribution disk.
3. Two hidden files are copied to a hidden subdirectory of the AOR Searchlight directory
(SEARCH.CCC and CCONTROL.SYS) when you install the software. These contain configuration information for the copy protection scheme and are normal DOS format files. DO NOT
DELETE THESE FILES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. If these files are deleted, AOR
Searchlight will not run.
4. If you are using a backup utility, make sure that the two hidden files are not backed up. When
restored, the copy protection scheme may not be able to validate the installation and AOR
Searchlight will not run. Most backup utilities do not touch these files because they have the
hidden, system and read-only attributes set. The two copy protection files also do not have the
archive bit set, so you should be able to exclude them from backups by setting up your backup
software to ignore files without an archive bit. Remember, it is not the backup but the restore that
can cause problems.
5. The /d+ option of the PC-Kwik disk cache software from Multisoft Corporation is not
compatible with the copy protection scheme and should be temporarily disabled when installing
AOR Searchlight or moving the token. HyperCache also affects the copy protection scheme in
the same way because of non-standard methods of
accessing the floppy disk drive. Again, it should be temporarily disabled, but both caches may be
used at other times.
6. The copy protection scheme is compatible with disk drives compressed with SuperStor, Stacker
and DoubleSpace. However, you should temporarily remove the token from the hard disk when
installing one of these compression utilities because the protection will appear invalid when the
drives are compressed. The disk compression utilities warn you of this in their manuals.
AOR Searchlight User’s Guide 50
ADDENDUM - Copy Protection
7. The copy protection scheme is known to be compatible with the following disk defragmenters:
Central Point’s Compress, Digital Research’s Diskopt, Stac’s Sdefrag and Microsoft’s Defrag.
Moving Copy Protection
A simple utility has been provided so you can move the copy protection “token” that is
installed by the software back onto the distribution floppy disk or between hard disks.
You may need to move the copy protection token back onto you original distribution
disk in the following circumstances:
F
F
F
F
When installing disk compression software.
When upgrading AOR Searchlight
When moving the program to a new computer.
When returning the original disk to your AOR distributor (for updates etc.)
To transfer the token onto the distribution floppy disk, run the Copy
Protection Move utility by double-clicking on its icon in the AOR Searchlight group:
When you have done this, the following window is displayed:
To transfer the token onto the distribution floppy disk, click on the Move
to master floppy... push button. If the token is already on the floppy disk, you can
transfer it to hard disk using the Move from master floppy... push button. You can use
this utility to have copies of the program on several computers at once, however the program will
only work on the machine that has the copy protection token on it. You will not be able to copy
the distribution disk itself.
This AOR software product comes with two tokens. Contact your AOR
dealer to obtain additional copies of the software.
