Features & Specifications
ComTekk 2-Tone Decoder makes use of the computer sound card and software DSP (Digital Signal Processing) techniques to listen for audio tones and instantly display the frequencies of a single or two-tone paging sequence, such as those used by emergency services dispatchers to alert fire and EMS personnel. These signals are commonly referred to as "alarms", "alerts" or "tone-outs".
ComTekk 2-Tone Decoder will listen for any sustained tone signal and display the frequency or frequencies. After about 5 seconds, the decoder will reset and wait for the next signal.
