Subject: [N1MM+] N1MM-WSJT
I operated as a Rover in the ARRL Sept VHF QSO Party. The new integration between WSJTx and N1MM+ worked very well. I run as SO2R with a FT991A on 6, 2 and 70cm and a KX3 as the IF for 222, 902, 1296 and 2304. Have a parallel port BCD band decoder to steer antenna switching, and PTT to transverters/amps. Winkey USB for CW and PTT. I ran WSJTx FT8 on the FT991A and had no issues starting/ending WSJTx.
Had one issue with logging. As a Rover, it's important to log the Rover QTH Grid to drive the dupe process when moving to a new grid. When running FT8 WJST sends logging data to N1MM+ but it appears that the "Grid" entered in the WSJT Settings "General" tab isn't passed to N1MM+ or that N1MM+ isn't handling it? The Rover QTH field in the Log Window is blank for FT8 Qs. I had to manually update to keep dupe checking working. I only made 125 Qs from six grids so I should be able to remember who I've worked from where! I suppose you could check the N1MM+ Rover QTH value and use that for logging to supplement the info received from WSJTx
Also, in N1MM+ Station Information (Config > Change your Station Data) there is a field for Grid Square (I've assumed it's your home QTH Grid?) and a Rover QTH field (the Grid you are currently operating from) I noticed when using Call History and a Station's call is entered (that was found in History) the calculation of bearing/distance was based on the Station Data "Grid Square" and not the "Rover QTH" grid. Rovers are a very small subset of N1MM+ users. If it isn't a big deal would it be possible to grab the "Rover QTH" grid for heading calculations? Maybe you already do and I just have something cross threaded.
