The really nice thing about this recognition is that the N1MM team hits on all 3 of the categories: Technical, Operating, and Organizational.

Well done!

Re: Bandmap

K2PS Pete Stafford
 

Thanks to Steve, N2IC, and John, K3CT for your quick responses to my Bandmap issues.

 

Indeed I was using an Icom radio, and modifying those settings did the trick.  I see the Telnet | Filter parameter, good.  And just entering the call and spinning the dial to add the spot, well, that's just too easy :)!

 

Looking forward to the ARRL 10M Test and trying out my new toys.

Re: Zone Confusion, Observation in Makrothen test

John Bednar
 

Jerry,

 

The program will not allow you to log a QSO without an exchange. Some users bypass this check by adding the {ForceLog} macro in the TU function key message. This of course leads to issues like this. If you are using this macro, remove it.

 

If you log a nonsense QSO, delete it instead of changing the callsign and exchange.

 

Not logging this QSO would also have avoided this issue.

John K3CT and all,

You have hit the nail squarely.   I may still need some tutoring.

Here is what I conclude from looking at the TRN file ... if I'm reading it right.  I was using enter-sends-message (ESM) and in the middle of a short run of CQ's.  Whether I grabbed some garbage copy or I fumble-fingered a mouse-click, I ended up with my Entry Window having EL09 (that's EL-zero-nine, probably an expert Liberian contester-DXer, just kidding) in my callsign blank.  From the TRN File, I believe I mistakenly entered that EL09 into the log.  From the surrounding QSO times, I conclude that I immediately saw the mistake, corrected it, and thanked KN5S for his response to my CQ.   The KN5S QSO was edited before I responded to the next station answering my CQ.  I appear to have copied and recorded everyone's grid locator correctly.  As we all agree, I did not and would not see a CQ Zone number.  At the end of contests, I make it a habit to do a before exporting the Cabrillo log and ADI file.

My Question at this Point:
Is there anyway I could have avoided recording into my log that erroneous West African CQ Zone number for the non-existent EL09 station?

I wish I could have worked a few West African stations though.....

Thanks for your quick response, correct analysis, and the help to set me straight.   Thanks to the whole team!

Jerry,

 

This was likely cause by this series of events.

-          You entered and logged a callsign in zone 35 at 20151010 214046

-          Then you changed only the callsign and not the zone.

 

You can review the TRN file for this contest. It contains the series of events (logging, editing, deleting). Search for the callsign and review the history.

 

The MAKROTHEN RTTY contest does not use the zone field but is populated as you type the callsign based on the Country file information. When I import ADIF into Dx4Win it flags any unexpected zones.

Earlier in August 2015, I wrote about some erroneous zone numbers reported from N1MM+ causing "mismatches" between what was showing in my log versus LOTW.  This occurred even though CQ Zone numbers were not part of the contest exchange.  A couple of those responding said the problem had been corrected.  I also believe that the situation has improved.  Recently I uploaded some contest logs to LOTW and experienced one mismatch which I can carefully and curiously report.  I do NOT have an explanation.

Please understand, I am reporting it just in case it will be helpful for those taking measures to correct issues.

I made contacts in The Makrothen Contest.  The Makrothen contest exchange is a signal report and a 4-character Maidenhead Grid locator.  I do not recall having any problems during this contest, and there were no opportunities for entering CQ Zone numbers.  I do use N1MM+ Logger's super check partial option.  I do not use call history, and I do not use any link to a callbook.   I did not experience RF feedback during these QSO's. 

During the contest, I was using N1MM Logger+ 1.0.5221.0.  After the contest, I exported my Cabrillo log for reporting to contest sponsors.  I also exported the ADI file to import into my general DX logging program.  After uploading my logs to LOTW, I noted a mismatch between LOTW and the ADI-file which was exported by N1MM+.

Below are Cabrillo log-record exports followed by the corresponding ADI-file records for the reported mismatch.  Both are directly exported from N1MM+.


Cabrillo log entries ...

QSO: 21090 RY 2015-10-10 2140 K7VIT         599 CN85   KN5S          599 EL09

Again I have not seen this zone issue lately, but this one popped up and was so easy to spot that I thought I would submit one observation.  As can be seen, the 2 ADI-file records do not agree regarding the CQ Zone number.

Constructively submitted with appreciation

Re: Macros and Choppy CW

John Bednar
 

I use these USB to COM port adapters with good success:

Sabrent Model SBT-FTDI  or  Model CB-FTDI

 

They are made with the FTDI chipset.  One has screw threads and the other has nuts. I purchase them converters from newegg.com. They often have free shipping or discounts on these converters.

The Board of Directors is pleased to announce that it has awarded the Yasme Excellence Award to the /N1MM+/Development Team: Tom Wagner, N1MM; Rick Ellison, N2AMG; Steve London, N2IC; John Bednar, K3CT; Nikolay Safronov, NA3M; Pete Smith, N4ZR; Andreas Hofman, KU7T; Larry Gauthier, K8UT; and Richard Ferch, VE3KI. The initial /N1MM Classic/is a sophisticated logging program offered at no cost to contesters around the world. /N1MM+/is a major revision to the original program and was a completely volunteer effort of thousands of programmer-hours to rewrite and test more than 250,000 lines of code. (_www.n1mm.com <http://www.n1mm.com/>;_) The program continues to be made available without charge and continues to be refined on a regular basis, supported by an extensive user group and full documentation.

The Yasme Excellence Award is presented to those who, through their own service, creativity, effort and dedication, have made a significant contribution to amateur radio. The contribution may be in recognition of technical, operating or organizational achievement, as all three are necessary for amateur radio to grow and prosper. /**/

Re: Zone Confusion, Observation in Makrothen test

Gerald Wilson
 

John K3CT and all,

You have hit the nail squarely.   I may still need some tutoring.

Here is what I conclude from looking at the TRN file ... if I'm reading it right.  I was using enter-sends-message (ESM) and in the middle of a short run of CQ's.  Whether I grabbed some garbage copy or I fumble-fingered a mouse-click, I ended up with my Entry Window having EL09 (that's EL-zero-nine, probably an expert Liberian contester-DXer, just kidding) in my callsign blank.  From the TRN File, I believe I mistakenly entered that EL09 into the log.  From the surrounding QSO times, I conclude that I immediately saw the mistake, corrected it, and thanked KN5S for his response to my CQ.   The KN5S QSO was edited before I responded to the next station answering my CQ.  I appear to have copied and recorded everyone's grid locator correctly.  As we all agree, I did not and would not see a CQ Zone number.  At the end of contests, I make it a habit to do a before exporting the Cabrillo log and ADI file.

My Question at this Point:
Is there anyway I could have avoided recording into my log that erroneous West African CQ Zone number for the non-existent EL09 station?

I wish I could have worked a few West African stations though.....

Thanks for your quick response, correct analysis, and the help to set me straight.   Thanks to the whole team!

Jerry,

 

This was likely cause by this series of events.

-          You entered and logged a callsign in zone 35 at 20151010 214046

-          Then you changed only the callsign and not the zone.

 

You can review the TRN file for this contest. It contains the series of events (logging, editing, deleting). Search for the callsign and review the history.

 

The MAKROTHEN RTTY contest does not use the zone field but is populated as you type the callsign based on the Country file information. When I import ADIF into Dx4Win it flags any unexpected zones.

Subject: [N1MMLoggerplus] Zone Confusion, Observation in Makrothen test

 

 

Earlier in August 2015, I wrote about some erroneous zone numbers reported from N1MM+ causing "mismatches" between what was showing in my log versus LOTW.  This occurred even though CQ Zone numbers were not part of the contest exchange.  A couple of those responding said the problem had been corrected.  I also believe that the situation has improved.  Recently I uploaded some contest logs to LOTW and experienced one mismatch which I can carefully and curiously report.  I do NOT have an explanation.

Please understand, I am reporting it just in case it will be helpful for those taking measures to correct issues.

I made contacts in The Makrothen Contest.  The Makrothen contest exchange is a signal report and a 4-character Maidenhead Grid locator.  I do not recall having any problems during this contest, and there were no opportunities for entering CQ Zone numbers.  I do use N1MM+ Logger's super check partial option.  I do not use call history, and I do not use any link to a callbook.   I did not experience RF feedback during these QSO's. 

During the contest, I was using N1MM Logger+ 1.0.5221.0.  After the contest, I exported my Cabrillo log for reporting to contest sponsors.  I also exported the ADI file to import into my general DX logging program.  After uploading my logs to LOTW, I noted a mismatch between LOTW and the ADI-file which was exported by N1MM+.

Below are Cabrillo log-record exports followed by the corresponding ADI-file records for the reported mismatch.  Both are directly exported from N1MM+.


Cabrillo log entries ...

QSO: 21090 RY 2015-10-10 2140 K7VIT         599 CN85   KN5S          599 EL09    
   
QSO: 14095 RY 2015-10-10 2211 K7VIT         599 CN85   KN5S          599 EL09


ADI-file Records ...

KN5S 20151010 214046 15M K7VIT 21.09030 MAKROTHEN-RTTY 21.09030 RTTY 599 599 600 K7VIT EL09 35 64 2746 1 AF 1 1 True GTWILSONX 1



KN5S 20151010 221101 20M K7VIT 14.09500 MAKROTHEN-RTTY 14.09500 RTTY 599 599 600 K7VIT EL09 4 74 2746 1 NA 1 1 True GTWILSONX 0



Again I have not seen this zone issue lately, but this one popped up and was so easy to spot that I thought I would submit one observation.  As can be seen, the 2 ADI-file records do not agree regarding the CQ Zone number.

Constructively submitted with appreciation
and with 73,

Often WHAT IS NOT SAID is important…

When surfing / browsing for products, USB to Serial, many alternatives will be suggested.

READ CAREFULLY the product spec, to be sure it explicitly states FTDI chips / devices.

Alternatives can be ultra cheap, but typically you can find a USB to Serial FTDI for under $15…

I recommend PI Manufacturing, but they also offer some with Prolific chips, so beware.

Read the description and reviews carefully if shopping at Amazon.

Not everything that claims to be FTDI actually is FTDI.

The description on Newegg or Amazon will say that it is FTDI. If it
doesn't, don't buy it.

Re: Bandmap

John Bednar
 

Pete,


Good to bump into you here....


#1 -- You must be using an Icom radio. In the radio menu set Transceive to OFF.
Recommended: While you are in the radio menu, set the baud rate to 19200 if it isn't. Set the Logger+ Config radio port baud rate to 19200.


#2 -- Telnet window, one of the tabs near the top of the pane.


If someone else doesn't help with the last question, I'll answer it when I'm in front of a full keyboard.

Thanks!

Something is wrong. What is your radio, etc ?

spots remain?
Yes, it's in the Telnet, Filters tabs, even though you may not be using spotting, it still works.

Type in the call. Spin the dial. The call should appear in the bandmap. Make sure you have "Show Non-workable Spots and Dupes in Bandmap" checked. It's in the Entry Window Config menu.
