Re: Cannot send CW F key messages in Split mode on K3


How did you activate Split? You should always activate Split from N1MM+ using the Ctrl+S command, not by using the Split button on the radio. Likewise, you should exit from Split mode using the Ctrl+Alt+S command, not by turning Split off from the radio. Trying to control Split mode from the radio instead of from the software can lead to mismatches between the software and the radio.

Are you in SO2V or SO1V? In SO2V, it is particularly important to use software commands and not the radio buttons to control split operation and choose VFOs, and it is important to make sure that both Entry Windows are in the same mode if you want to operate Split from one of them.

Are you sure VFO B and VFO A are in the same mode? It is quite possible for VFO B to be in SSB mode while VFO A is in CW, in which case the software will detect the mode mismatch, causing it to refuse to transmit in split mode. If the radio's CW-in-SSB feature is enabled, you will be able to send CW from the paddle in this situation, but the program will still refuse to send CW function key messages.

I isolated the problem to the N1MM Mode Control tab.  When "Use radio mode (default)" is selected, it will not send F key messages in SPLIT setting on CW.  When SPLIT is selected on the K3, the header on the N1MM logging window shows "Contact Mode () <> Contest mode (MIXED)!"  I am using a DX log in N1MM for general logging on our remote station for CW, Phone, and Digital QSOs.


When I change the Mode Control setting in N1MM to "Use Contest or Radio Mode" or "Always CW" it works normally for sending the F key CW messages in SPLIT setting.
