When running SO2R with two K3 radios, split does not stick when running
WSJT-X from either radio in FT8 or MSK144. This is true regardless of the
bands used on either radio: i.e. HF or VHF. Both of my K3s have a second
RX but neither are used when running SO2R. I am following the VE3KI
protocol strictly. I have set Split Operation to Rig in Radio settings for
all of my configurations (HF, 6m, 2m, 160/80m).

Subject: Re: [N1MM+] Running WSJT from within N1MM
that if you are used to using WSJT-X with DXLab Suite Commander, the radio
setting will be the same in the N1MM+ instance (DXLab Suite Commander in both
cases), but you do not run Commander at the same time as N1MM+. N1MM+ takes the
place of Commander.
To switch from FT8 to SSB, close the WSJT Decode List
window, close WSJT-X, type SSB into the call sign box and press Enter, and if
the rig is not on an SSB frequency, type the frequency you want in kHz (e.g.
14300, not 14.300) into the call sign box and press Enter. To switch back to
FT8, use the Window > Load WSJT/JTDX menu item, then the Window > WSJT
Decode List menu item, select the FT8 mode in WSJT-X and if necessary, the FT8
frequency for the band you want to operate on in WSJT-X. Do your WSJT-X
operating in the WSJT-X window, not in N1MM+.

Rich, thank you for these detailed instructions and for all the
posts you've given, demonstrating superb support for N1MM+.
I have FT8 interfaced with DXLabs, but I plan to follow your instructions
to have FT8 work within N1MM+.
There’s one issue I don’t believe anyone’s asked yet…perhaps the answer
will be obvious after I follow your setup steps. But my question is,
what do I need to do (if anything) with the setup when I’ve finished operating
FT8 and want to switch to another contest mode. For example, if we had
set up as you indicated below for Field Day this year on our SSB station and
wanted it to do double-duty on FT8, when we were finished using FT8, what
would we need to do to switch modes back to SSB?
Thanks and 73,

The first step is to make sure CAT is working in N1MM+ without the
added complication of WSJT-X. Start up N1MM+. Type 14025 into the call sign
box in the Entry window and press Enter. Does your rig QSY to 14025 kHz?
Turn the rig's tuning knob and tune it to 14050 kHz. Does the frequency at
the top of the Entry window now read 14050.00? Change the rig's mode to USB
from the front panel. Does the mode at the top of the Entry window change to
USB? Now type CW into the call sign box in the Entry window and press Enter.
Does your rig change modes to CW? If any of these steps fails, N1MM+'s CAT
control of the rig is not working properly, and CAT control from WSJT-X via
N1MM+ is doomed to failure.
You also need to have the capability to
switch the rig between transmit and receive. There are several ways to do
this, but if your rig supports it, one way is to enable PTT via Radio
Command Digital mode in the setup dialog for the radio control port in the
Configurer. This won't work if the CAT control described in the previous
paragraph isn't working, and it is not available on some older radios, but
for most modern radios it is arguably the easiest method.
this is working, you can start WSJT-X from N1MM+'s Window > Load
WSJT/JTDX menu item. After doing this, verify that all of the WSJT-X
settings you need have been set up correctly. Note that the settings for
WSJT-X when run from inside N1MM+ are separate from the settings you use
when WSJT-X is run stand-alone. It is OK to make some of the settings the
same (such as the settings under the General tab and the Audio tab in the
WSJT-X Settings window), but the settings under the Radio tab will be
different in the N1MM+ instance of WSJT-X from the same settings in the
Now select the FT8 Mode in the main WSJT-X
menu, and then in the frequency selector at the left edge of the WSJT-X
window below the Band Activity window and above the receive level dB
thermometer, select the frequency/band you wish to operate on. The rig
should QSY to that frequency and switch to the mode it uses for digital
modes, provided all the rest of the setup has been done correctly. Clicking
on the Tune button in WSJT-X should switch the radio to transmit and send an
unmodulated tone (useful for adjusting audio levels).
If all of the
above works, you should be able to use WSJT-X from N1MM+.

I am still having problems running WSJT from within
N1mm. I have followed the instructions to the letter in the
excellent N!MMWSJT document and still can't get the CAT to work. A
nice person on the forum contacted me privately and offered to help me fix
the problem but I accidently deleted his email. I have my rig set to DX
Labs Suite Commander and all of the other settings as per the guide.
Any assistance is appreciated/
