Cables made by FTDI available directly or from distribution

Kimo Chun
 

​FWIW, you can purchase FTDI chip-based USB to RS-232 DB-9 cables in 10cm or 100cm long versions directly from FTDI or from other authorized distributors such as Digi-key

Just do a search for FTDI chip RS232 cables.

Here is the link to their page showing their various models.


We started using their products at least a decade ago when, I believe (not sure), the problems with the Prolific chip happened and cheap cables from China flooded the market. I still have a couple of those. I didn't even bother using them. I should just throw them away.

I recommend getting the premium version with the two blue LED (or blue lens) that indicate traffic. It is reassuring that communications is happening, or useful when it is not!  I've never had a problem with them not working whether with a ham radio application or programming radios, etc.

I also purchased a version from Gearmo that took it one step further by showing status on all the wires much as a breakout box would. It claims to have the FTDI chip so I am confident it will work similarly. I haven't tested mine, yet.

For me a few bucks more is worth it to know I'm getting something that is likely to work well. I've only used them on WIN 7 and before, so far. Can't speak on WIN 8 or 10

I just received an 8-port adapter from Startech. They claim to use the FTDI chip as well. I expect good results. MOXA makes good industrial versions I''ve only seen their wireless APs or bridges so I am presuming similar products but they are too expensive, hence the Startech..

Good luck.

Re: FLdigi habgs N1mm logger +?

No previous versions on official FLdigi repository :-(
I will switch back to MMVARI

Welknown problem, often reported.

You should switch to an older version of FLdigi - half year or one year ago.

FLdigi habgs N1mm logger +?

Stefano Comelli
 

Hi everybody
excuse my bad english....
trying to setup latest N1MM Logger for incoming EA63 PSK contest on my Win7 64 bit ultimate.
Everything is fine with MMVARI, but if I try to use latest Fldigi, N1MM logger hangs. When I switch from MMVARI to Fldigi,  logger starts fldigi, which seems to  run and decode smootly, as I can pick signals on the waterfall, but N1MM logger freeze and I have to kill it and restore a previous version of ini file to come back to MMVARI.
Any suggestion?
thank you and 73 de IZ3XNJ Stefano



Re: Radio not responding

Ronald Baran
 

Thanks John,


At the moment the drop down menu shows COMs 1, 10, 3, 8 and 9.  I say "at the moment" because over the past few days COM 10 was not listed.  Yesterday I started removing and re-seating all the USB connections just to make sure nothing loosened from hub and next time I checked the Device Manager COM10 (CW/other) was there.  


So my rather lengthy answer to your last question is YES - although that's not what I was looking for at the time.  


So the system is now working.  I guess my question is; what happened and why and what do I do in the future to prevent it?


I've also developed an RFI problem - or more correctly -  my RFI problem started to cause problems when I use the amp, with the monitor turning itself off and loss of keyboard and mouse control and the software popup telling me that there was no communication with COM8 which was the port assigned to the IC 7000.


Now looking into ferrites, system grounding and RFI grounding from the second story.

Ron,

 

> …..The only thing I can do inside the MM+ is switch mode…

Does the radio change mode when you type CW, USB, LSB in the callsign box and press Enter?

 

There no issues with using a functioning USB to COM converter to control any radio.

 

Is the Icom radio address in the radio set to 70?

 

Do you have more than one Com port listed in the Config dropdown?

 

Exit Logger+, open Windows Device Manager, expand COM ports. Remove and insert the USB cable connected to the CI-V converter. Does the expected COM port appear and disappear in the Device Manager window?

Thanks John,

 

"set the boxes to 19200, N, 8, 1, Always On, Always On"  that was the setting I had so it had no impact on the radio.  The only thing I can do inside the MM+ is switch mode  (but not the band) from phone to CW.

 

What's your thought on the USB to serial / pigtail CT 17 between the computer and radio?

One other possibility, if you are using a USB port to connect to the computer, is that Windows may be shutting down that USB port as a power saving measure. See the bulleted list in the third paragraph under "4. Via USB Port" at for instructions on how to prevent Windows from shutting down USB ports.

Ron,

 

I have no idea what you selected in Config.

 

Set the Icom radio SET menu for baud rate to 19200, not Auto.

 

In Logger+

Do not check CW/Other for the radio control COM  port.

Open the COM port for the radio and set the boxes to 19200, N, 8, 1, Always On, Always On.

 

This should work.

 

The manual for the CI-V interface probably mentions that it is powered by the COM port. It should tell you if DTR and/or RTS needs to be high. If both needs to be high you are finished. If only one needs to be high, set the other to Always Off.

 

If this solves the problem tell us what you had set incorrectly.

 

Eventually you will want to open the radio SET menu and turn Transceive Off.

As with the previous two replies, I’m afraid I can’t reply with an actual answer to your question either. But the timing is quite interesting. I spent hours last night going through similar frustrations. I’ve put a new FTDI USB to serial cable (KUSB) in line between my RemoteRig and my W8.1 machine and no matter how I configured things, I could not get it and N1MM+ to talk to one another. Device Manager insists it’s working properly, but N1MM repeatedly insisted that the COM port it’s on is ‘not functioning’. By the fifth hour, I was so bloody annoyed I gave up looking for an answer. I’m not going to mess with it again tonight. I need my sanity.

Re: AK Call In WI

gbyahoo@...
 

Joe,

As far as I can tell, you always have to include the /W9 designator in the Station data configuration for the CALL field. In other words, enter it once and leave it that way. I've tried that here and it works fine for a contest such as the ARRL DX. That is, the exchange to be filled in is Power not States.

Is there a problem with that?

Because he went to use it in the contest, even tho the set up knows he is in WI, when it came to logging, it would not let him log DX stations but liked Sates. so it thought with his AK call that he was in AK even tho the set up shows WI in every way.

So what should a AK Call guy do special when he actually lives in W9 land and is his home QTH according to the FCC and QRZ etc..

So what should a AK Call guy do special when he actually lives in W9 land and is his home QTH according to the FCC and QRZ etc..

HI John,

Maybe some think there is a prolific chip in this item maybe because it doesn't work for them.

I read all six pages of reviews at newegg.com and could not find this comment. If it exists, I believe it to be a posting error.

Glad you posted a couple of "good" converters.  It's funny to do read reviews of the units and I was checking out the Sabrent Model SBT-FTDI that was listed below.  Appears that one Newegg reviewer stated that this cable was garbage and contained the Prolific chip.  Amazing how some things conflict even when they are good.

Re: Digital windows multidecoder real estate waste & GRITTY

Rick Ellison
 

Salvo..

As of now there is no way to reduce the “wasted space” At some point I need to revisit the whole Gritty setup. I implemented it I was not even sure Gritty was going to be around long. The author of Gritty wasn’t sure either at that time. I do need to look at a better implementation for it and will do that . It is on my list to work on..

Subject: [N1MMLoggerplus] Digital windows multidecoder real estate waste & GRITTY

 

 

Hi all.
Just a silly question.

When DI13 is enabled with GRITTY & "Enable attached RX windows" is asserted ...

Is there a way not to waste that not used slice of the, for me, fourth slice?
GRITTY text for quite known reason will flow only inside its text window.
Thus leaving the DI13 without any data ... meaning.

 Thanks for any suggestions or improvement about GRITTY integration.
