1.4.2.
Operating recommendations
So as to guarantee acquisition performance, stability of supplied information and reliability, we recommend
you follow the conditions below:
The unit must be installed in a location with steady air flow, either forced or natural. If several units
are stacked up, they should be spaced by at least 1 U to allow air flow and prevent overheating.
It is strongly recommended that the location is not subject to a high humidity level (>70%), and to
avoid high salinity or chlorinated environments.
It is strongly recommended that the location is not exposed to a high volume of dust.
Connection to the mains should be done according to applicable installation codes:
 outlets in good working conditions to insure a reliable contact,
 correct voltage, without fluctuation and stable over time (power conditioner recommended),
 sufficient power.
The quality of the communication network (modem, ADSL, WIFI, WIMAX) is very important. Modem
correctly installed, proper antenna installation in case of WiFi and WiMax,
1.4.3.
Installation specifications and precautions regarding the RF environment
When installing a FM Monitoring Silver, be conscious of the RF environment in which the equipment will be
placed. To guarantee the reliability of the system it is necessary to set it up in the best conditions, following
the guidelines presented below.
It is understood that the equipment is installed following the operating recommendations as stated in the user
manual regarding the environment, the electrical network and the communication network.
1.4.3.1 Reception system and monitoring site
The FM Monitoring Silver could be installed at a transmitter site or at a dedicated monitoring site. In the first
case, the RF signal is obtained from a probe attached to the RF output of the transmitter or of the cavity filter.
In this situation, the RF levels are normally very high so it is necessary to put adequate attenuation between
the source and the monitoring equipment, reducing the RF level within the unit’s acceptable range (2095 dBµV).
When monitoring off-air signals, the RF is delivered from an external antenna linked to the unit by a coaxial
cable. There are different types of outdoor antennas: their selection and installation is one of the most
important aspects of the monitoring site.
The most common types of FM antennas are:
-
Omni-directional antenna
Unidirectional dipole
Multi-element array antenna.
Omni-directional antennas normally have low gain, and the lack of any significant directionality does not
make them really suitable for continuous monitoring. The average noise level detected by this type of
antennas is higher than in directional antennas, since the reception lobe is almost 360°, exacerbating the
effects of unwanted signals such as multipath interference.
Unidirectional dipole and multi-element array antennas are characterized by a significant directivity and a
greater gain (up to 7 dB for a log antenna), and so are more suited for monitoring purposes. The beamwidth
decreases with the increase in the number of elements so high levels of selectivity can be reached, but
conversely a very narrow beamwidth could make pointing the antenna in the direction of the transmitter
difficult.

FM Monitoring Silver 2.5.x User Manual – 01/2014
The reception antenna used at a monitoring site should be a professional FM reception device, able to
guarantee consistent performance over time and avoid
degradation of the reception due to corrosion, etc.
Moreover, it is strongly advised to use antennas calibrated
for FM band frequencies (ie. not broadband) to be sure that
out of band signals (TV or civil application transmissions) do
not interfere with the monitoring system. This could indeed
happen if a consumer wide band antenna is used.
The outdoor antenna should normally be installed taking into
account the surrounding environment, in terms of obstacles
and objects or buildings close by. To guarantee a minimum
protection against multipath interferance; a distance of about
3 meters (1 wavelength at 98 MHz) is recommended
between the antenna and any surrounding objects. For
example, a directional antenna installed too close to a wall
will receive signal reflections from the wall, which can easily
affect monitoring capabilities.
To set a monitoring site it is necessary to:
a. Know the distance and direction of transmitter sites relative to the position of the monitoring site
b. Make a measurement campaign around the chosen site, verifying the stability and the average level
of the RF field.
c. Determine the list of the channels to be monitored and verify they respect the minimum
recommendations in terms of signal/noise ratio, RF protection ratio (adjacent and iso-frequency
signals), modulation power, etc.
Typically each monitoring site keeps track of signals from one single transmitter site, with one or more
programs. A single directional antenna should be used to receive the signals as stated in the preceding
paragraphs.
In case more than one transmitter site is to be monitored, it is recommended to use a separate directional
antenna, aimed at each of the sites and use a coupler to combine the signals before connecting to the
splitter. That way, it is possible to avoid using an omnidirectional antenna and keep the selectivity and
sensitivity typical of a directional antenna.
1.4.3.2 Evaluation of the FM Band
The first thing to do after having installed the FM Monitoring Silver is to run an identification scan to verify (if
not done before with a spectrum analyzer) that the antenna system and all the cable connections to the unit
are functional and to check the average RF level detected.

FM Monitoring Silver 2.5.x User Manual – 01/2014
This first scan identifies any anomalies or critical monitoring conditions. The most common situations are:
a. Average RF field too high: the FM receiver of the FM Monitoring Silver is capable of detecting signals
between 20 and 95 dBµV, but for monitoring purposes the nominal level should be kept at lower
values, to guarantee the correct decoding of sub-carriers information and avoid saturation conditions
induced by strong fields.
b. The energy distribution in the FM band depends on the RF level of all the signals found during the
scan; a homogeneous band (i.e. all carriers have approximately the same level – see Figure 1) is a
good base for monitoring, as there is no energy concentration on any specific frequency, thus there
is no large RF differential between two monitored stations.
The recommended monitoring conditions are:
1. RF level of controlled stations between 30 and 65 dBµV
2. Frequency distance between 2 monitored stations at least 300 kHz
3. Basic noise level under 10-15 dBµV
If the RF level of the monitored stations or the basic noise level is higher than the suggested values, the use
of a coaxial passive attenuator is recommended: this device will decrease the overall RF level and will also
reduce the basic level of noise that can affect sub-carrier decoding.
If there is one single very strong carrier (for instance when a monitoring site is very close to a local
transmitter), the use of a tuned notch filter is suggested. Typically, this type of filter applies an attenuation
only on the frequency on which it is tuned, leaving the surrounding RF field unaltered. An example of notch
frequency response is the following:
Fig. 2 – Frequency response of a notch filter tuned at 101 MHz
If the monitoring site is near a TV (Analog or Digital) or Civil VHF transmission site, it is important to protect
the equipment from any possible interference generated by the other transmitters. The first filter is the
reception antenna that, if chosen as stated, could already reject out of band signals; however, if the carriers
are very strong those signals could interfere with the FM Monitoring Silver’s receiver.
In these cases, it is strongly recommended to install, between the receiver’s connector and the antenna, a
coaxial low-pass filter to reject all frequencies greater than 108 MHz, thus improving the monitoring ability of
the equipment.
An example of commercial filter is the Mini-Circuits SLP-100+ filter:

FM Monitoring Silver 2.5.x User Manual – 01/2014
This filter rejects all frequencies over 100 MHz but with only a little insertion loss up to 110 MHz, is useful for
the FM band. In the attenuation graph above, the attenuation characteristics are visible peaking at 40 dB and
more at frequencies of 175 MHz and higher.
1.4.3.3 Monitoring
After the evaluation of the FM band, it is time to start the monitoring activity. ‘Controlling’ a radio station does
not mean monitoring the transmitter parameters, its product in terms of RF level, presence or lack of
subcarriers, modulation, etc.
Environmental conditions (snow, temperature variations, storms and heavy rain) between transmitter and
receiving antenna could impact the monitoring abilities as they change the reception conditions so it is
important to consider those aspects when starting any radio monitoring.
It is strongly recommended to start the activity of the equipment with a period of measurements without
alarms to be able to observe the behavior of the controlled signals over a sufficiently large time window to
determine the correct alarm thresholds to be applied.
A good procedure is to first configure wide alarm thresholds and to narrow them down after some time,
based on the trends of the signals during the observation period. This strategy is also useful to determine if
any of the characteristic parameters of the signal (subcarriers, audio, …) is unstable due to saturation or
reception problems: it is useless to monitor an unstable RDS signal which would generate many alarms
when it is clear the reception conditions do not permit RDS detection (basic noise too high, interference, etc).
The same principle should be applied to the alarms timeouts, beginning with a relatively long time between
the error state and the alarm transmission and decreasing it after several hours/days of observation.
Some basic monitoring parameters suggested for the configuration of the FM Monitoring Silver:
RF level
AF level
MPX level
RF high
61 dBµV
timeout
30 sec
RF low 1
49 dBµV

AF low
-35 dBr
timeout
3:00 minutes
MPX low
0 kHz
timeout
120 sec
MPX high
85 kHz
timeout
120 sec
Concerning the configuration of timeouts on the different alarms, it should be considered that this time is also
influenced by the number of channels configured on the equipment: in basic monitoring (without extended
RDS), each channel is scanned for 1 second before the receiver proceeds to the next one. As an example, if
10 channels are monitored (either in “active monitoring” or “measure without alarm”), the maximum wait time
between alarm detection and transmission is the configured timeout + one complete monitoring cycle (for 10
channels on basic monitoring, 10 seconds).

FM Monitoring Silver 2.5.x User Manual – 01/2014
The extended RDS monitoring is a separate process and takes 1.5 seconds per channel. Extended RDS
data is collected in a dedicated buffer and it is based on this data that the different alarm conditions are
detected. To guarantee correct detection of all RDS groups, it is necessary to give this process an adequate
monitoring time, typically around 10 minutes.

The auto-configuration scan is described in sections 7.1 and 9.2; this function makes it possible to view
all carriers present in the band.
These prerequisites should be taken into account so as to give the essential components (CPU and receiver)
the best operating conditions. These components are sensitive, and extreme conditions greatly decrease
their reliability and the consistency of their performance over the operational lifetime of the FM Monitoring
Silver.

5. REMOTE APPLICATION PRESENTATION
5.1. Introduction
5.1.1.
Working principle
The unit is designed to automatically monitor a programmed list (radio stations) by comparing measurements
from an internal tuner to user-defined reference settings. In case of failure, alarms are generated and sent by
SNMP Traps or mail. The unit communicates with the outside world via IP network (Ethernet or modem). It
comes with a client-server application serving as graphic user interface that makes it possible to remotely
configure the unit, view measurements and event logs as well as view realtime measurements and listen to
the audio.
5.1.2.
Functions
Cyclical monitoring on multiple programs
Cyclical monitoring is done by setting the tuner successively on each set frequency for acquisition of
measurements and by then comparing the programmed reference values with the newly acquired data.
Please note that measurements are collected only once per frequency which explains why a very brief
anomaly will not be detected. Each monitoring element is successively tested according to the hierarchical
test order. With this order; lower level tests will stop when a higher level error has been detected. As an
example, it is pointless to test the modulation level is the RF level is too low. This method also prevents
useless alarms from being sent.

Triggering alarms:
This status is then reevaluated with each monitoring cycle as the tests are performed again. When a
measured value is out-of-tolerance, the state switches to ‘ERROR’, but the alarm is not triggered

immediately. For each parameter, the “timeout before alarm” parameter can be configured: it represents a
delay during which an error state is tolerated before the alarm is triggered. Once this length of time has been
reached, the state switches to ‘ALARM’, and corresponding actions are then taken (notification, placement of
the event in the event log…)
Switching from ‘ERROR’ to ‘NO_ERROR’ is immediate; however, it takes 2 confirmations to go from
‘ALARM’ to ‘NO_ERROR’, the test must be error free for 2 consecutive cycles.
The hysteresis is an additional factor to be taken into account before the unit returns to normal state after a
‘level’ type threshold violation. This value adjusts the triggering threshold after an alarm begins so that
fluctuations near the threshold level will not continuously trigger alarms. For instance, if we set the high level
threshold at 60 and the hysteresis at 5, the alarm activates at a level higher than 60, and stays on until the
level falls below 55.

Triggering and end of a high threshold alarm
‘Intermittent alarm’ type tests detect short but frequent overshoots. A time window and a number of
acceptable overshoots during this time window must be set. For instance, if we do not want more than 5
overshoots within 2 minutes, a counter will start at the 1st overshoot. At the 6th overshoot within the 2 minute
window, an alarm is sent. The state is reinitialized when the number of overshoots within a 2 minute period is
lesser than or equal to 5.

Notifications (or traps) are identified with a unique id number (see trap description, Appendix E). They
include common fields but also specific fields to detail the reason and the context for the notification. The
common fields are:
o
o
o
o
SystemType: FMMonitoringSilver
SerialNumber: unit serial number
VersionSoftware: embedded software number version
SequenceNumber: trap sequence number (this value is incremented for each new trap)
When an alarm is triggered, a TRAP is sent with the following values:
-
channelType: 1 (Analog FM)
frequency: frequency in MHz x10 (1024 for 102.4MHz)
channelId: row number of the station in the monitored channel list
channelName: station name
alarmStatus: integer indicating the alarm state: 1 for the alarm beginning
errorDateTime: date and time of the beginning of the event
eventStartDateTime: date and time of the notification being sent (Note: this date includes
triggering time or Timeout)
severity: event severity as set the notification configuration page
readValue: observed value (converted into integer)
referenceValue: reference value for comparison as set in configuration pages
transmitterName: name of the transmitter associated with this station
networkName: network name associated with this station
When the alarm is over, the same trap is sent with alarmStatus = 2, and the end time in errorDateTime.
Case of alarms ‘closed by hierarchy’
When an alarm with a high hierarchical level is triggered, the state for each lower hierarchical level alarm
changes to ‘CLOSED’ and a notification for ‘closed by hierarchy’ is sent. As an example, if an AFLOW alarm
is active and the RFLOW2 alarm gets triggered, an AFLOW trap is sent with an alarmStatus value of 3
(closed by hierarchy).

no issue on the channel
When dealing with a series of channels, each channel is monitored for a set time (5 seconds on the example
above, with a 2 second delay before alarm).
Recorded start and end times depend in part on the monitoring cycle.
Channel 1: the error starts second 2 while the channel is monitored and ends second 16 while the channel is
also monitored. Alarm start and end times match actual times.
Channel 2: the error starts second 6 while the channel is monitored and ends second 11 when the channel is
no longer monitored. An error starts again second 18 and ends second 23. The monitoring unit cannot detect
the absence of error between second 11 and second 18. It is seen as a single error. Alarm start time: second
8; alarm end time second 23.
Channel 3: the error starts second 12 while the channel is monitored and ends second 20 when the channel
is no longer monitored. The monitoring unit detects the absence of error when starting to monitor the channel
again. Alarm start time: second 14; alarm end time: second 25.
It is also important to note that when a channel is not monitored, no measurements can be compiled on that
specific channel, leaving blanks in the recorded measurement curves.
As a rule, be aware that the higher the number of monitored channels, the lesser monitoring time is spent on
each.

The monitoring time depends for each channel on the number and type of monitored parameters. For
an FM Monitoring Silver, the average time is 900 ms for basic monitoring. Monitoring of extended RDS
parameters will add about 1600 ms to the cycle time.

Scanning
It detects RF level variations over the whole FM frequency band.
The idea is to regularly compare the levels obtained from a scan of the entire band with reference levels.
Each measurement that differs from the reference beyond the a user-defined tolerance will trigger a SCAN
alarm. This particular operation is not done with each cycle. It has its own schedule. It does not interrupt the
monitoring cycle; it is executed in between 2 cycles.

Date/Time
 Set system date :
The user may update both date (year/month/day) and time (hour/minute/second).
 Set system time zone
The user selects the geographical zone from the list. Important to have this set correctly when
using an NTP server.
 Network Time Protocol: NTP update
The user can enter a time server address to update the equipment’s internal clock
automatically. Make sure this address can be reached by the unit; specifically, the gateway
must be properly set. Specify whether it should be synchronized continuously or periodically.
For periodic synchronization, indicate what time the daily synchronization should occur
(between 0 and 23).

Set the time zone first! Changes in the time zone affect the time that is displayed in the system time
window, so setting the zone first will eliminate the need to set the system time twice!

6.2.5.
Network

Definition of the IP configuration:
o
Ethernet configuration mode
It is preferable to configure the Primary network interface ENET1 with static
parameters. Should the unit be set to DHCP, you may lose the ability to know what
IP address it has and thus access it on the network. If this occurs, you must return to
static IP settings using either the serial connection as described in the Quick Start
guide.
o
Static Ethernet configuration
Enter the static IP parameters in this window. IP address and mask are essential,
gateway is important if the unit is to communicate outside its own subnet. The
secondary interface can be used as a backup interface if the Ethernet fail-over
function is enabled.
o
DNS Servers: DNS configuration. Very important if the unit is to send e-mails using
an alpha server name (i.e. smtp.server.com as opposed to 54.32.156.67).
o
Current network status: present network table.

o

Ethernet fail-over: the Ethernet fail-over function enables the unit to send alarms
using the back-up Ethernet interface in case of issues with the primary interface.
The unit pings the reference address (Always-on IP) at regular intervals (Time
between pings). If there is no answer, the switch takes place. The unit keeps pinging
the reference address and switches back to the primary interface when there is an
answer.
When changing the “Time between ping”, the previous time will be applied a last time after update.
! The Ethernet fail-over function and PPP Dialout are mutually exclusive.

IP configuration is also available from the embedded web site (“Network” page).
6.2.6.
PPP Dialout
! Enabling
PPP connections will suspend Phone Alert and Voice/DTMF functions!
When configuring from ScriptEasy, enabling one function will disable the other function’s tab. After
disabling a function, you’ll need to close the system configuration pages and open them again to enable
the tab you need.
! Ethernet back up and PPP Dialout are mutually exclusive.

 To configure outgoing calls: activation of outgoing calls
 PPP as Ethernet backup:
This function makes it possible for the unit to switch to the PPP interface to send alarms if the
primary Ethernet interface (eth0) doesn’t function anymore (i.e. if a reference address doesn’t
answer to a ping).
This verification is done regularly and can be changed by the user. It may happen that the
network cable is unplugged or damaged, or that the equipment associated with the reference IP
address is off or not on the network.
To activate the PPP backup, in the "Dial out enabled" section, select "yes only if Ethernet goes
down".

Enter a reference IP address in the field "Ping this address to test Ethernet
connection"

Configure a PPP account to dial when alarms are issued.

If you wish to use PPP backup, configure the SMTP server with a static IP address and not with a DNS
name.

Be aware that unlike with Ethernet messages, a mail sent using PPP does not trigger a confirmation
message.
 Calling quotas: number of calls

The user can limit the number of daily outgoing calls. He/she should put 0 if this
limitation is not required.

The user can limit the number of hourly outgoing calls. He/she should put 0 if this
limitation is not required.

The user can click Reset to put the call counter back to zero.
 Dialout accounts: the user can create a new customer account. Enter settings for the new
customer account (name, number, login, password…) and click on “New account”. The unit can
manage multiple accounts.


Modem configuration: the user selects the modem (if necessary) and its features.
The line should be able to identify incoming calls when filtering and for call-back (see
below). You must then add #CID or +VCID at the end of the init string depending on the
type of modem supplied by WorldCast Systems:
US Robotics model  ATS0=0Q0&D3&C1S32=98#CID=1
Radicom USB model  ATS0=0Q0&D3&C1B20+VCID=1
The “Filter Callers” function enables incoming calls to be filtered using Caller ID (the incoming
telephone line must have this service activated).
6.2.8.

Filter Callers: To add a new account, enter the relevant information and click on “New
Account”. This allows incoming calls from the authorized number list, and blocks non
authorized numbers.

“Callback”: select ‘Customer’ in the menu to activate an automatic PPP call back
feature. When an incoming call displays a ‘Callback Customer’ number, the modem does
not answer; instead, it waits for the ringing to end and then generates an outgoing call to
that number. This allows PPP connection from the unit without phone charges to the user.
SMS Alerts
Enable text message alerts on this page.
All modems are not compatible with the SMS function. Use the DB-9 modem approved by WorldCast
Systems (see your dealer for details).
Before configuring SMS alerts, display the I/O Layout page, USB-Serial Ports section to indicate the port
(usually COM1) the modem is connected to and select ‘GSM modem’ in the pull-down menu (see section
6.2.16).
Once SMS alerts have been enabled, COM1 will appear in the list of available modems; select it.
The initialization string can be left blank.
SMS recipient accounts are configured on the Users page (see section 6.2.4). All users who should receive
SMS are associated with a list which will be selected here.

 Configuration of e-mails :


Enter the SMTP server address, account information, and destination e-mail addresses to enable
sending of e-mail alerts. Ask your network administrator for the SMTP parameters. (Note that you
must have a valid DNS setup if you want to use SMTP host name. Otherwise you must use a
numeric IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx). For additional security, enable TSL (Transport Layer Security).

The “send mail every” section enables the user to send messages in a batch every “X” minutes if
desired. When waiting for the time chosen by the user, the FM Monitoring Silver stores the
messages.

Two sections are available that allow the user to configure the contents of the subject line and the
first line of the body of the alarm e-mail. Any text entered in these windows will be included, and
there is a list of variables (in brackets) that can be included as well. This feature allows the user to
customize the first parts of the alarm e-mails to be more compatible with portable devices.
Email notifications will be sent to email addresses as set on the Users page (see section 6.2.4).

6.2.11. SNMP Agent
 SNMP configuration

The equipment supports multiple destination addresses for notifications. However, only the Main
Manager has the authority to acknowledge notifications. With “INFORM” type messages, automatic
answers from secondary managers are ignored by the unit.

The user can download the MIB. Simply click on the button to save the .mib file locally or on the
network. In the MIB, you will find specific and unique tables such as the ScriptEasy alarm table, the
Notifications pending acknowledgement table and the I/O table.
 SNMP Traps configuration

SNMP Notification Type / Trap Community / System Description: trap settings

Life Sign Trap / Minutes between Life Signs: sends life signs every X minutes.
 Trap sending test: sends a ‘Warm start’ trap to the destination(s) according to the trap settings.
6.2.11.1 Supported SNMP versions
The Unit SNMP agent is compatible wiht SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c versions. GET and SET commands
are supported, as well as GETBULK in SNMPv2c. Notifications can be transmitted in TRAP V1 or V2c
form or with an INFORM V2c type.
6.2.11.2 Notification mode
To make sure traps reach their target via the protocol, the FM Monitoring Silver offers 2 methods; with
both methods, traps are sent until acknowledgment is received by the manager.

FM Monitoring Silver 2.5.x User Manual – 01/2014
 Automatic acknowledgement for sending with INFORM. These notifications are only available
with the version 2c of the protocol. This protocol checks that the manager responds to the
notification sent by the SNMP transmitter. This process is simple and reliable, no specific
configuration is required for the manager.
 Manual acknowledgement for Traps V1 and Traps V2c. A specific OID
(“alarmPendingAlarmsalarmAck”) is extracted and its variables are sent with the trap. The
manager must then execute a SET command. This method is more complex but is the only one
that can work with the version 1 of the protocol.
The acknowledgment mode (Trap V1, Trap V2c or Inform) is identical for all alarms. See the next section
“Notifications” for additional settings.

With “SNMPv2c traps” notifications, it not possible to acknowledge traps.
In the same way, traps which do not require acknowledgment cannot be sent with the “Inform
SNMPv2c” format, even when this format is selected. This is the case with the ‘test’ trap as well as with
equipment information traps such as the ‘Equipment On’ trap.
6.2.12. Notifications
 SNMP Actions
The user may replay traps that have not been acknowledged yet.
The user may also delete pending traps that have not been acknowledged yet.

FM Monitoring Silver 2.5.x User Manual – 01/2014
 Configuration depending on notification type
In the "Mode" column:
“Do not send”: used for temporarily suspending sending certain types of alerts
“Send and Forget”: standard SNMP mode, no acknowledgement awaited, notifications are
deleted immediately after sending.
“Resend until acknowledged”: standard alarm mode. Notifications are re-transmitted until
acknowledgement is received. The acknowledgement mode depends on the sending mode:
 automatic acknowledgement for sending with INFORM
 manual acknowledgement for Traps V1 and Traps V2c
Principles of Re-transmission / Acknowledgment
In the “Resend until acknowledged” mode, it is possible to set the maximum number of tries and the
acknowledgment timeout.
As long as an acknowledgement has not been received, the notification is re-transmitted at the rate of once
every <d> seconds, for a maximum of <n> times; where <d> and <n> are the <Ack Timeout> and <Max
Retries> fields respectively.
If acknowledgement does not arrive after <n> attempts, the notification will be “frozen”, that is to say, it is put
on standby until a new notification of the same type is generated. It can also be manually unblocked by using
the “Replay Traps" button.
It is important to note that untransmitted notifications are not lost. They are kept to be retransmitted as soon
as the right conditions are met. When a new notification appears, the “frozen" notification is reactivated and a
cycle of sending attempts begins again.
The alarm severity level can also be set: a specific manager action is associated with each severity level.

The severity level set for the traps on this page also sets the severity level for the event log, with the
following correspondence table:
Traps Severity

6.2.14. IP Router and Port translation
 Local port redirection:
The port redirection allows the user to set specific, non-standard IP Ports to be used by various functions of
the FM Monitoring Silver. This is useful when the default ports are not desirable or available (for example:
forbidden by the ISP, blocked by a firewall...).
For each port used in the FM Monitoring Silver, select the interface of the port (for example PPP in the case
of a modem connection) and the new port to use in the “duplicate to” field.
Each redirection line can be activated or disabled independently.
Once the configuration is done, lock it in by clicking on “update”. Then click the “Activate new configuration”
button at the top of the page.

The redirection does not deactivate or turn off the default ports. It only ‘clones’ or duplicates their
functions on the ports designated. External methods must be used to block any undesired ports from
the network.
 To configure the unit as a router on a local network:
This function allows a user to communicate with all of the equipment on the local network shared by the FM
Monitoring Silver (Ethernet) from a PC connected to the FM Monitoring Silver by modem (PPP).

6.2.19. Receivers
 Receiver configuration: monitoring and realtime measurement functions must be assigned to
a specific receiver; the receiver to be used for streaming, recording and audiotag is set at the
factory. This function is not application to the FM Monitoring Silver.
 Max duration: to set a time limit for realtime functions after which they will be automatically
stopped.
 Attenuation for each receiver. These values are not taken into account for monitoring.
 Total Modulation Measurement: acquisition period used for the MPX signal measurement.
During a standard cycle, a high number of captures is used resulting in more precise
readings.
During a short cycle, a lower number of captures is used. This option takes less time but
the reading is less precise than with the standard cycle.
Because the time difference between both options is not significant, it is recommended to keep
the standard mode.
 MPX overshoot threshold: Set the overshoot threshold value of measurement display for MPX
measurement (from 10-3 to 10-7); default: 10-6, in compliance with the Recommendation ITU-R
SM.1268-2: 10-4% or 10-6. This choice affects the MPX cumulated curve (see section 10.4).

To set the nominal level, move the mouse on the line until you see the arrow , and click and drag.
This level is set between the high and low thresholds; when moving it, the thresholds also get
adjusted.
 In section (2):
View the receiver used to monitor this program (1, 2 or 3) and the applied attenuation.
Set the nominal level by entering the desired value in dBµV.
Auto-configure thresholds: once data has been collected for this particular station, you may click the
button to automatically set the nominal level to the average measured value for that station. Previous
threshold settings (in terms of difference in dB from the nominal level) will be maintained.
 In section (3)
Setting various thresholds can also be done by manually entering values in this section. For each type of
monitoring, a check box enables monitoring and specific parameters are then displayed.
The Threshold is the reference value. When the level overshoots it, the FM Monitoring Silver will
trigger an alarm or other action.
The ‘Hysteresis’ value establishes a level at which the unit will recover from an alarm state. In other
words, if the signal dips below the ‘Low’ threshold, the level must come up above the ‘Low’ threshold
plus the Hysteresis differential before the unit will cancel the alarm. This prevents the generation of
dozens of alarms and log events by levels that are fluctuating at or near the alarm thresholds. When
the set value is too high, the text box becomes red.
The ‘Time out before alarm’ will configure a delay between an out of tolerance reading and the
generation of an alarm, which prevents transient and momentary variations from generating nuisance
alarms.
Check the ‘Send Alarm’ box to send an SNMP trap and/or mail in case of alarm. If that box is not
check, the threshold violation will only be recorded in the event log.
Intermittent errors may also be monitored by checking the box. When checked, the following
parameters can be set:
-
The max number of intermittent events before the alarm is triggered.
-
The time window during which the number of events will be counted.
-
Whether to send an alarm or not.
 You may also want to zoom on the graph or better read actual values:
To zoom, press CTRL while doing a click and drag towards the bottom.
To unzoom, press CTRL while doing a click and drag towards the top.
To see the actual level value, press SHIFT: the thresholds disappear and 2 thin lines appear. The
level value at the vertical line gets updated as you move right or left.
The horizontal line follows the curve. If you want to read a value that is not on the curve, press SHIFT
and ALT at the same time, then move your mouse.
A grey section on the graph indicates a period during which no measurements were made.

How MPX power is monitored:
The FM Monitoring Silver digitalizes the MPX signal for 1 s every monitoring cycle.
After a time t set in the field ‘Window’ (default time is 60 seconds to be compliant with the standard), the FM
Monitoring Silver supplies the first MPX power value, which is an aggregation of the values retrieved with
each monitoring cycle over the previous t seconds. This value is used for monitoring.
With each new monitoring cycle, the new MPX power value is based on the previous t seconds.

 RDS Clock Monitoring: sends an alarm(s) when the offset between RDS time and the unit’s
time is greater than the maximum allowed time offset (in minutes/seconds) and/or when the
RDS time zone is different from the unit’s. RDS time is checked every day at the same time or
at regular intervals.

Note:
RDS data monitoring is done by taking 15 groups every cycle and adding them to a buffer so as to
reconstruct as closely as possible the complete data stream. At the end of the user-defined time period, preset conditions are compared to the data acquired and potential alarms are triggered. The duration begins at
the first cycle and is evaluated with each cycle. Since the acquisition frequency depends upon the number of
monitored stations, make sure the time set is sufficient to acquire enough data for a meaningful test.
Please note that the cycle time set at the top of the page only affects some RDS parameters: PS, PTY, AF,
AID, SLC, GRPD and group monitoring. It is not applicable for TA monitoring. EON TA, EON TA PI and RDS
clock monitoring use their own cycle.

Click and drag towards the left or the right or left to display lower or higher frequencies.
Hover the cursor over the graph while pressing the Shift key to display lines that will facilitate reading the
current scan values.
Press Shift and Alt simultaneously and the lines will move away from the current scan curve, making it
possible to approach other curves and read their values.
In addition to monitoring configured FM stations, the FM Monitoring Silver can automatically scan the local
FM band at regular intervals or daily at the same time (2). The triggering mode can be:
 Disabled.
 By interval: scanning is launched at regular intervals ranging between 1 min and 24 h.
 By hour: scanning is launched daily at a time set by the user.
The unit records the minimum and maximum RF levels of the carriers and triggers an alarm (if validated by
the user) when a RF level change is detected. The minimum RF threshold and the triggering difference are
user-defined.
Before validating the scan alarm function, a reference scan must be carried out by the unit (3). Click
to start that scan. It will always increase in 10 kHz increments.
In this section, you may also:

min and max scans.

run a new scan. Step and frequency range are user-defined.

run a new market scan.
Two icons at the bottom of the screen (4) switch between the display of scan options and a display of scan
data in tabular form. This data can be sorted by clicking on a column header (one click to sort in ascending
order the chosen column, a second click for descending order). Data can also be exported in csv format by
clicking

. The sort order is maintained in the exported data.
Monitoring is never interrupted when scanning is in progress.
The unit alternates monitoring and scanning. Therefore the time required for the scanning process may
be long.

The Max MPX power value will only appear after one minute of measurements.
On four different graphs, the following data is represented (3):
 MPX cumulated: cumulated MPX compliant with ITU-R SM.1268-2 standard.
The deviation is given for a cumulated value as set by the user (see section 7.2.19).
Presented with a logarithmic scale, values are expressed in power of 10: 10x also written 1ex.
On the MPX cumulated curve, the ordinate scale will be between 0 and -9, for instance -6 which
will be understood as:
-6  1e-6=10-6 = 10-4%
The cumulated MPX (absolute value or in %) indicates the time ratio during which excursion
levels are greater than or equal to 75 kHz.
 MPX peak: time representation of minimal and maximal deviation.
 MPX power: time representation of the calculated multiplex power (in dB, according to
ITU BS412-9 standard).
 MPX spectrum representation

!
Our monitoring units use narrow FI filters (150 kHz/-3 dB) chosen for their selectivity
specification, as required for the stability of readings (AF, PILOT, RDS).
These filters make readings more reliable when adjacent programs are present, the local FM
band is dense or when reception conditions are mediocre.
However, important FM deviation modulation over a 75 kHz deviation will reach the FI filter early
lateral bands.
In this case, a distortion is created and the MPX spectrum display may show parasite lines
around -65 dBu.

Commands module - Relay outputs
Please refer to the ScriptEasy manual for more information on I/O management.
This module provides 8 SPDT relays. Each relay has one com input (common) and two outputs: NC
(normally closed) and NO (normally opened).

Schematic diagram:
RELAY (x8)
NC (Normaly open)
COM
NO (Normaly closed)



When the relay is not in use, com is linked to the NC output.
When the relay is activated, com is linked to the NO output.
If your unit reboots, com is then linked to the NC output.

Practical examples:
1. The relay can be used like an on-off switch to make a contact between the common and one of the
outputs (NC or NO).
2. It is also possible to connect a power supply to the common (for example the +12 V power supply
available on pin 13) and to switch this power supply between the NC and the NO output.

FM Monitoring Silver 2.5.x User Manual – 01/2014
APPENDIX A: SCRIPTEASY OBJECTS
The ScriptEasy version supplied with the FM Monitoring Silver includes specific digital objects activated
when an FM monitoring alarm is triggered.
These objects are represented with the same icons as those used in the FM Monitoring Silver application in
the Monitoring Configuration section. Click
on the ScriptEasy toolbar to display the ‘FM Monitoring”
menu and use these objects.
Select the event you would like to add to your script and place it on the current page.
To configure it, select it and fill in the information in the properties panel on the right of the screen:
Double-click on the ‘radio channel’ field to display a selection box from
which to select the desired station for the alarm (the channel list
comes directly from the FM Monitoring Silver you are connected to):

FM Monitoring Silver 2.5.x User Manual – 01/2014
Once configured, you can use this object like any other ScriptEasy logical object: it will be activated when the
alarm it represents is triggered on the selected program and will return to a normal state when the alarm is
closed.
Action Objects specific to Radio monitoring:
The ScriptEasy FM version also includes an object to set the tuner dedicated to
realtime surveillance to a given frequency, and to enable this program on the FM
Monitoring Silver audio output, and another object to stop the audio outout. Note that
this receiver is not available for other tasks during this type of operation.
Another object makes it possible to trigger audio recording in file (on the receiver
dedicated to realtime surveillance). This object can launch recording when a specific
event occurs or at a specific time. Note that programmed recording must be enabled
in the monitoring application (see section 8.1) and that a recording cannot start if
another recording is already in progress.
To configure this object, fill out the information in the properties panel on the right of the screen: frequency,
recording duration (in minutes), and a label that will be added on the end of the recording file name.

FM Monitoring Silver 2.5.x User Manual – 01/2014
APPENDIX F: ITU-T AF FILTER OPTION, OBJECTIVES AND OPERATION
F.1. Objectives
To present the FM Monitoring Silver’s ITU-T AF filter option.
To demonstrate the advantages of its presence when monitoring AF signals.
F.2. Observations
It is rather delicate to monitor AF signals. In fact, they are, by their very nature, random signals. It is,
therefore, impossible to differentiate between the useful signal and the non essential signals in a monitoring
process.
The most efficient way of preserving the best possible relevance, when monitoring audio signals, is to
operate only the useful signal by avoiding or attenuating any other form of signal.
WorldCast Systems has carried out numerous laboratory tests involving minute observations of demodulated
AF signal behavior in a real-world situation (The FM Monitoring Silver connected to an FM reception antenna
in a typical service zone).
The results of these analyses have led to identifying the major causes of interference in monitored AF
signals.
There are three types:
 RF signal conformity.
The FM Monitoring Silver installation instructions stipulate minimum and maximum levels to be respected as
well as the maximum level allowed for multipath reception (1). It has been observed that whenever these
limits have been exceeded, very significant degradations can be noticed on the AF signal.
For example:
Too low an RF level will induce a high audio noise level which could be above the threshold of audio
absence detection.
A multipath reception rate >2% will induce noise rising phenomena in the lower part of the audio
spectrum.
The influence of interfering transmitters or industrial parasites either picked up by the reception
antenna or directly induced into a device can lead to random modulation peaks whose frequency
and levels could hinder audio absence detection.
 Quality of the demodulated composite signal.
Although it is very difficult to identify the cause, non-conformity in the multiplex signal has direct
consequences on the quality of decoded audio signals.
For example:
too high a pilot signal level will be characterized by noise rising from the top of the audio spectrum
interference between M and S signals and Data sub-carriers (RDS, DARC) can provoke high
frequency noises (between 10 and 15 kHz)
 Demodulated audio signal quality.
When Left and Right AF signal degradation is not directly due to non-conformity in the composite signal or
the RF signal, it is usually processing or audio limitation tools which are responsible.
For example:

FM Monitoring Silver 2.5.x User Manual – 01/2014
slow, gradual but very significant noise rising on the upper part of the audio spectrum during
absence of any modulation source
poor channel separation can provoke extreme crosstalk in low frequencies should a channel
accidentally disappear.
(1) The multipath reception rate was measured according to the method of modulated amplitude ratio on the
RF signal using AUDEMAT FM dynamic analysis device DFMA02/ADFM02.
F.3. Consequences
These observations show audio signal degradation creating potential dysfunction in AF monitoring service:
Poor detection or instability in measurable AF levels
Significant risk of non-detection of audio absences (particularly in multi-channel mode where
monitoring is in sections).
So as to reduce these risks, WorldCast Systems has developed an audio filtering option enabling the
equipment:
to tolerate a relatively low quality of received or demodulated signals
to further improve functioning in a normal situation, by considering only the useful audio signal in the
audio spectrum rather than the entire band, as this could in fact transport non essential signals at the
risk of disturbing the monitoring of absence of one useful audio signal.
F.4. Analyzing disturbed signals
The tests have been combined and averaged to obtain a model of disturbances created on the audio signal.
The following diagram shows noise distribution on L and R channels when multipath reception rate is at 3%.

FM Monitoring Silver 2.5.x User Manual – 01/2014
A high incidence of noise has been observed in low frequencies (<500 Hz) whose levels are modulated by a
combination of multipath signals. In this extreme case (it involves an accumulation of observations), it
becomes impossible to reliably detect any absence of modulation for which the threshold is <-25 dB.
To keep this functionality, the user must work with relatively high thresholds (-20 dB) and observe signals
over a long period so as to avoid the risk of false audio absence alarms. The service is therefore slightly
degraded.
This observed deterioration with a high multipath reception rate is even more accentuated when combined
with weak to average RF level.
The following curve shows the influence of the received RF level on detected minimum AF levels for a
multipath reception rate of 3%.

Figure 2: detected minimum AF levels, according to input RF level and for a multipath reception rate of 3 %,
in multi-channel monitoring mode.
A very rapid increase of noise has been observed as soon as the received RF signal level is <65 dBµV. It
must be said that it is not rare to find signal levels to be monitored below this value; this fact leads to an
added risk of non-detection of audio absence.
F.5. Solution: audio filtering
Constructed models show that audio signal disturbances are likely to be distributed above and below the
audio spectrum.
It is therefore possible to insert a band filter which is the only guarantee for maintaining spectrum central
frequencies.
So as to avoid the risk of the audio signal being significantly corrupted and thereby misleading the monitoring
system, WorldCast Systems has used a filter with a standard design, taking into account how the audio
signal’s standard distribution and noise are shared, according to ITU-R (TO.41).
The accepted filter is in format ITU-T P53.

Figure 3: form of filter ITU-T type P53 (ITU-R TO.41) adopted to enlarge AF channel monitoring functional
service zone.
F.5.1 – Insertion principle
This ITU-T filter is implemented within the FM Monitoring Silver in software module form acting directly onto
L and R channels’ digitalized samples, coming from the signal management matrix.
This optional functionality therefore has no link nor action with the device’s other software modules and
cannot in any way modify behavior or performance of the device’s other functions.
No adjustment or modification to the hardware is necessary for updating a standard FM Monitoring Silver
with the AF filtering option.
F.5.2 – Obtained gain
For the same modulation signal reference (FAF = 1 kHz @ ±75 kHz deviation) and for a multipath reception
rate of 3%, the following graph shows the detection thresholds of minimum AF levels with and without the
ITU-T P53 filter.

%, in multi-channel monitoring mode, WITH and WITHOUT AF filter.
A very sharp improvement in residual level of noise can therefore be observed, even in the case of a
multipath reception level of 3% for an RF level >40 dBµV.
F.6. Operating
Implementing this optional filter implies a revision of monitoring thresholds. In fact, the global energy
available is different with or without filter.
The following table shows suggested default thresholds for monitoring AF absence and the range of
thresholds that can be set.
Without filter
With filter
Min threshold capture range
+3….-40 dB
+3….-60 dB
Min threshold by default
-35 dB
-55 dB
WorldCast Systems’s recommendations:
1/ - to determine the minimum threshold value best adapted to audio absence monitoring, read the minimum
audio level value measured and stored by the device, after several hours of measurements on a monitored
program whose audio signal is reputed to be “correct”.
During threshold configuration in the software, add at least 5 dB to this level so as to avoid any risk of noise
peaks, which are likely to provoke re-initialization of delays in taking audio absences into account.

FM Monitoring Silver 2.5.x User Manual – 01/2014
Example: detected minimum level after 24 hours of functioning: -60 dB; recommended monitoring level: -55
dB to -50dB, depending on reception conditions (disparity of 5 dB is proposed by default in the “Equipment
Auto configuration” function).
2/ - to optimize audio monitoring and make any alarm relative to the audio program more relevant, it is
necessary to assess the power of the AF signal so as to balance the monitoring algorithm using one of the
coefficients proposed in the following table:
Value of measured MPX power
Monitoring weighting
< 0 dB
Sensitive
De 0 dB à + 4 dB
Semi-sensitive
> 4 dB
Normal
For measuring the MPX power, refer to documentation: “Product information ref. IP 1016-F: Installing the FM
Monitoring Silver, specifications and precautions”.
3/ - to obtain realistic audio absence monitoring, the FM Monitoring Silver’s polling mode must be taken into
account:
Single channel: in this case the device monitors the audio program continuously. It means that the
programmed observation of a fault is carried out during a continuous duration. Signal absence is
thereby detected in an almost certain way (signal < threshold over the whole sequence).
Multi-channel: this time the device is in polling mode (sequence of x channels). The duration for
observing any faults is not continuous. There will be an increase in risk of bad appreciation
depending on the given amount of weighting and number of channels. It is therefore necessary to
remain very vigilant concerning the definition of parameters likely to trigger an alarm:

minimum audio threshold

modulation type (weighting)

observation locking in case of audio absence

observation duration before alarm.
Refer to chapter 7 for more details on this issue.
F.7. Conclusion
The ITU-T audio filtering option for the FM Monitoring Silver means that the device’s limits in audio
monitoring performances can be broadened and RF or AF signals tolerated in limited characteristics
compared to what is recommended for standard monitoring.
Its implementation is particularly recommended when the RF signal is supplied by an antenna or a system of

APPENDIX G: CONFIGURING YOUR UNIT TO SEND ALARMS
The GOLDENEAGLE FM can send text messages (SMS), e-mails and phone alerts to one or more users
based on the severity level of the events.
Several steps are required to fully set the unit, first in the system configuration pages, then
in the monitoring configuration pages.

On the ‘Users’ system configuration page, set accounts for users who should receive notifications. The
Admin and Guest accounts are already available, they can only be used for phone alerts.
For each new account:
Enter the name of the user, the email and/or
the phone number for text messages or
phone alerts.
For phone alerts, associate the account to a
list and set the access code.
For SMS, associate the account to the list
set on the SMS page.
Set the level of severity for sending text
message and/or email:
o Critical: only critical alarms are sent
o Major: critical and major alarms are
sent
o Minor: critical, major and minor
alarms are sent
o Warning: critical, major, minor and
information alarms are sent
o None: no alarm is sent
o All: all alarms are sent.
Check the box to enable the account.
G.2. Severity levels
A default severity level is set for each type of event.
The list of events is available on the ‘Notifications’ configuration page.
