SpaceQry FAQ’s

How do I update my SRS database with data from the IFIC databases?

How do i update my srs

“How do I update my SRS?”

This has always been the most frequently asked question for SpaceQry users!

Following the SpaceQry presentation and workshop held during the Radiocommunication Bureau’s Geneva Seminar 2006, several people suggested that the process of updating the local copy of the SRS database with the bi-weekly IFIC databases be simplified. As a result, a new, simplified procedure has been developed – but first, some background…


Background export vs import

Background: Export vs. Import

SpaceQry has always had the philosophy of exporting data as opposed to importing data. Historically this is because of having the SRS database exclusively on a CD-ROM in the days when hard-disc space was limited. Because of this, the SRS was almost always used directly from the read-only CD-ROM.

Today, and in fact for the last several years, disc space is no longer an issue. So it is now relatively easy to maintain an up-to-date SRS database on your hard disc (or even on your iPod) which pretty well matches the BR's database.

Because of SpaceQry's historical "export" philosophy, the method for updating your local SRS is to export the new data from the IFIC database into the SRS database. To do this you need only…

1) copy the SRS from the DVD onto your hard drive;

4) open the IFIC database with SpaceQry;

5) select the File:Export:Update the SRS menu option;

6) select your local SRS as the "target" database

Your SRS is now updated with the relevant data from the selected IFIC database.

Doing this procedure every 2 weeks using the latest IFIC database will keep your SRS database in sync with the BR’s production databases.
