Lost Log

Dennis W1UE
 

Was trying to change the name of the S3 database for my trip to HR9.  Unfortunately, somehow I screwed things up and can't get back my log.  Every time I try to log it, I get a little box with "A possible problem has occurred [Update Contest Grid].  Please stop and restart N1MM+ Logger.  If this reoccurs, please contact the N1MM development team."

So, I am.

N1MM+ NOT TALKING TO RADIO

tom4951@...
 

Well after about 2 years and using a new computer I am trying to get N1MM+ to run and having the following problem.

My computer is using Windows 7 Pro with a Vantec 2-port serial PCIe host card connected to a Yaseu FT1000MKV.

The ports are installed correctly but neither com port sees the radio. So, I don't know if the PCI card is not really a RS232 or not but it says it is.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for bothering you. Checked http://n1mmplus.hamdocs.com/tiki-index.php and found that the reflector is down.

Jerry,

A DVK does not have the flexibility of a sound card or radio codec.

Your function key text is wrong. The code is not sending three commands.
Here is a sentence from the manual (Macros section).
“You can not place more than one CAT1ASC or CAT2ASC macro in a function key
message”

This portion of your message looks like a typing error:
{cat{cat1asc swh37;}

Record everything in one message and played one DVK message.

If you must send three radio commands see the manual instructions. Here is
the link:

Subject: [N1MMLoggerplus] Looking for some programming help with switch
emulation coding

 
Hello,
 
I am trying to get the following commands to work using N1MM function keys.
 
What I want to do is using the SWT or SWH codes is to press and hold the rec
button on the radio which will switch memory bank to two, push the M1 button
to play the recorded voice, and then switch the memory bank back to one.
 
This is the code I have so far.
 
F5 Prec,{cat1asc swh37;}{cat1asc swt21;}{cat{cat1asc swh37;}
 
What I had found though was that N!MM spits out the code too fast and the K3
does  not have enough time to finishing processing the first cat1asc
command. Clearly I will need a delay between each of th e three “cat1asc”
codes so that the K3 will process each cat command and then be ready to
accept the next command.
 
So the question is; does the K3 have a method to introduce delay that I can
use on the N1MM function key string of commands so that the K3 can process
each command or does N1MM have a way to process each separate cat command in
a function key using a delay command of N1MM making?
 
So if there is a solution, it may lie with either N1MM, Elecraft or both so
I am posting to both lists.
 
Best regards,
 
Jerry Knowlton, W1IE

set spot timeout

Jorge Diez - CX6VM
 

hello

is any way to fix spot timeout to a value diferent than 60?

I go to bandmap, richt click, set spot timeout, change to 30
Quit N1MM (latest version)
Open it again and spot timeout is in 60 minutes

Re: Telnet not working.

Kenneth Crandall
 

Hey guys,
John, W0ZZ figured out the problem:
Windows
  Network Status
     Stations
         Master Check Box

The master check box was unchecked, and this locked me out of the spotting network.  As soon as this check box was checked, then all was normal and I can log into any spotting network again.

This is the most hidden check box in the world!!!

MK2R+ not latching using N1MM+

Richard King
 


I am having a problem with my MK2R+ and N1MM+ getting setup for the CQWW CW this weekend and I suspect there may be is a MK2R+ hardware problem. But I hope that it is actually something that I am doing wrong in the setup so I can use it this weekend..

I cannot get the MK2R+ to switch the headphones from the CQ (run) radio to the S/P radio when CQing on the run radio. This has actually worked in the past.

When I turn "Focus other on" and start a CQ on the run radio, the MK2R+ jumps the headphone selection for both ears over to the S/P radio for just an instant. Then it immediately switches back to the run radio. All I hear in the headphones when this happens is a loud double pop and I am back hearing my sidetone on the run radio.

I looked at the router and monitored the control line commands and it seems to be correctly telling the MK2R+ to listen to the S/P radio during the entire CQ and then tells the MK2R+ to switch back to the run radio. But it is already on the run radio by then.

If I turn "Focus other off", the run radio works normally without trying to switch; no pops, just the expected sidetone from the run radio.

If I use the tilde key to split my headphones, it works normally until I transmit and then the one headphone ear listening on the S/P radio switches back to the run radio while transmitting. But will switch back to split when the CQ stops. 

These problem occur regardless of which radio is the run or S/P radio.

I have had the MK2R+ for many years and at times it has worked perfectly. This problem started with the previous computer (Win 7) that I was using after it had been working correctly with N1MM+  for a long time. Then one day it just stopped working.

Due to some system failures and other problems recently I have lost my backups for Microham's router setup so I am having to set the MK2R+ router back up from scratch. I can't be sure if I don't remember how to do it right or if the MK2R+ is failing somehow.

Now I have a brand new Win 10 system and I am trying to get the station ready for the weekend. Everything seems to be setting up OK, except for this headphone switching problem to listen to the other radio.

I did a lot of reading in N1MM+ manuals and the Microham MK2R+ manuals trying to spot what might be configured incorrectly. I have double checked all my N1MM+ and MK2R+ settings that might effect this condition. I can't figure it out. 

I hope that one of you folks out there might be able to advise and point me in the right direction.

Thanks for reading all this.

Yahoo groups is experiencing problems.  At this point, we have not seen any posts for two days and Yahoo is silent as to the cause and ETR. 


If you have a question that you need to be resolved before Yahoo comes back online, ask your local club or computer guru.  If you can't resolve it that way, we will be able to answer a *limited* number of questions via the bug reporting mechanism at: http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-view_tracker.php?trackerId=11&sort_mode=f_396_desc  We will give priority to those users who have demonstrated the most effort to read the documentation.

Logging Error in CQWWSSB

Joe WB9SBD
 

I just realized, when we ran CQWWSSB a few weeks ago, when we did it
at a friends house, he had the log all set and ready to roll.  We ran
the contest and when it was all done generated the Cabrillo and ADIF
files, to send to the contest sponsors, and import to the main log.

BUT..... While everything we sent over the air was correct, he forgot to
change databases, and all the contacts were logged as his stations call,
not the call we actually used.

In the Cabrillo file, that was easy to fix, a simple find & replace.
Take his call out and insert the right one. Like I said all RF wise was
fine just wrong database.

But the ADIF file,,,, what would be the easiest way to fix that so we
can put all these contacts into the stations log correctly?

Telnet trouble

Hi I got a message that I was forcibly disconnected from a telnet node and ever since I cannot seem to connect to any node. Either the attempt fails or I get an error message..Internet connection is OK. Any suggestions?


Thanks Bob HS0ZIA


DX Heat

George VA2EBI
 

What is the telnet address for DX Heat?  I can't seem to find it on their website.  I took a guess at "dxc.dxheat.com" and N1MM showed an IP address, but the connection failed.

I tried turning off all the Antimalware programs..., uninstalled and reintalled...same problem....does not create the N1MM Logger.ini file....(I made sure I could see hidden files)....I could create my own ini file if I knew what to put in it...
When I run it....nothing happens...

Re: Won't start

I realize that uninstalling and re-installing is just creating the same problem...just though maybe I did something wrong.....I can check to see if it is hidden...but the rotor.ini file is there...so it seems that if that was the problem..I  would not see the rotor.ini...I will look.....I considered anti-malware,,,,and made sure "realtime" checking was not on.....

DOesn't mean that is not the problem....just that I considered it...I will take a look again..
