Re: Macros triggered based on SO2R state changes

Thanks for the tip! I had a suspicion that the switching required the amp to be powered on to work properly, but I appreciate your advice based on the schematic.

Hi Matt


Side comment regarding the 2K-FA.


Don't know how long you've had your 2K-FA, but just checking with you to verifiy that you know that with the

 power off, the SO2R antenna is defaulted to Input 2 (you called it the inactive rig).  You can actually use it like that, so if you have something

tied to the SO2R port,  I'm sure you know not to put out any R-F (with the Amp off).  If I am reading the schematic correctly, that may

damage your preamp.


Although, as you know, with the 2K-FA in STBY, when you transmit with Rig 2, the proper antenna is connected  by the CPU.

Subject: [N1MMLoggerplus] Macros triggered based on SO2R state changes





I finally got set up for SO2R and have the macros working as expected, except for one scenario:


I'm using the built-in SO2R switching in my SPE-2KFA amplifier, which uses a dedicated RX antenna input that is routed to the inactive radio when doing SO2R. 


This works just fine except that the antenna I'm using for inactive radio RX benefits from a preamp (and I'd like to use the built-in preamp in the rig).


I'd like to have N1MM+ send ascii commands to the active and inactive radios to do this.


So far I have it working for the F1 key, but if I get a caller and start typing, the inactive radio becomes active and the preamp is still on, which is undesirable.


Advice on whether it's possible to use the existing macros to set this up would be much appreciated. 


Also, is there a way to set up macros based on SO2R "events" like switching active radios, typing in the entry window, etc?  It would be very useful to be able to add these macros right into the function key file, such as:


F1,cq test de nq6n


F12, {wipe}




73, and thanks for the great software.
