There are mode filters in the Telnet windows under Bands/Modes. Unchecking all the Mode options should allow all modes through.

Cluster spots

Christer, SA6AQP
 

Hi all.


I have som problems with clusterspots.


Running a SES station and want to see spots in main windows.

I see CW and SSB spots but no digitalspots.


I tried and change bandplans on 20 m and set digital to 14070 - 14100 and the bandmap shows purple.

When we run on 20m CW yesterday the pots from skimmer ended up in the right window but i never see them when running RTTY.


Any help?

Thank you, Tom,

I get it now.  I'm just surprised that the Bandmap switches direction if you open Spectrum Display, which makes it too confusion to use both.  But you are right, there is no reason to use both.  My rig is an IC-7600 and I use it SO2V and make QSOs on both VFOs in the CWOPS CWT sprints.

I just tried eliminating the Bandmaps and setting up 2 Spectrum Displays vertically (called Bat) in place of the Bandmaps and that seems really slick.  I can get the CTRL+UP/Down Arrow to work any way I want.  I'll give it a try Wednesday.

Thanks again,

How are you switching modes?? Does it work if you type SSB in the Entry Window?? You should be able to cycle thru the modes by typing them in the Entry Window callsign window.

Subject: [N1MMLoggerPlus] Logger / WSJT problem in June VHF and Jauary VHF contest

 

The problem is: I was running N1MM+ along with WSJT-X this weekend in the VHF contest. I was set up SO2R with SSB+CW+DIG as the mode setup. After I click on "6m" under the DIG column N1MM will not go longer go back to PH for any bands! To be able to use the PH mode I have to shut down N1MM and re-start it. I had this same problem is the January VHF contest too.

 

My setup is very straight forward. I have a K2 IF rig for 6M through 432 and an old Kenwood 2 meter IF rig for 902 though 2304. I'm setup where N1MM has control of the K2 but not the Kenwood which is too old for any rig control. N1MM does not have control of PTT; WSJT has control of PTT but it does not have rig control (doesn't read band / freq etc)..

 

The specifics of the above setup are: 

 

N1MM:

In the New Log  in Database dialog the Mode is SSB+CW+DIGITAL

In the Configurer "Hardware" tab the SO2R button is clicked so can get separate entry windows for 6m-432 and 2902-2304. This also lets N1MM know not to try and control the Kenwood rig.

Port COM3 has a Radio of Elecraft K2 and  Com  "None" has a radio of Kenwood.  

Everything in the "Digital Modes" tab is set to the defaults of "none" or "Not Set"

 

WSJT-X:

In the settings dialog, "Rig" is set to "None" and the CAT control section of the dialog is greyed out.

The PTT Method in the dialog is set to RTS and the Port is COM4

 

So there appears to be no contention for com ports: N1MM has COM3 for rig control of the K2 and WSJT has COM4 for PTT only.

 

Having to shut down N1MM to go from DIG to SSB on 6M is very irritating; especially in a contest!  Is this a bug or does some other configuration need to be done to happily go between DIG and SSB in SO2R as described above?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

2.

I was just looking at the default RTTY for MMTTY in the documentation and it really needs to be updated there. The actual default macros for digital modes are fine but the documentation is in need to updating. After receiving many responses to my CQ with Mycall followed by the report and Mycall again rather than Mycall followed by the report followed by the caller's callsign I thought it should be reviewed. Thanks.

N1MM +WSJT-X + JTAlert-X Coordination

Mike K2MK
 

Semi success during the VHF contest operating CW + SSB + FT8.

When operating FT8 I changed the port config on N1MM to a vacant port so that WSJT-X could hold the com port. Great, no problem. Having set up the broadcast parameters in N1MM I was able to log my FT8 contacts in N1MM by pressing Log in WSJT-X. A message displayed on JTAlert-X indicating each contact was being logged. Great, no problem.

Dupe checking while using FT8. By using the "B4" feature of JTAlert-X, each previously worked FT8 call came up in a different color (I chose red) on the JTAlert-X display with a "B4" suffix added. Stations sending CQ that were available to be worked were green. Again, great, no problem.

Since FT8 calls were logged into N1MM there was proper dupe notification while operating SSB or CW. Great again.

What I could not achieve was dupe checking while operating FT8 of stations that I had worked on SSB or CW. I resorted to a hand dupe sheet for all SSB and CW contacts. Tedious, not great.

I'm now thinking that the solution would be to manually upload an ADIF log file from N1MM to the JTAlert-X "B4" setting box each time I transition from SSB or CW to FT8. Is this correct or is there a better solution?

Thanks Rich.  I will look for it for next time.  For this one, I just entered the correct grids manually.  Seems as if a lot of time was wasted with lots of contest participants using the two incompatible apps, unfortunately.

Just reading the reports from the more advanced/computer literate guys who figured out how to get their WSJT-X entries to load into N1MM+ simultaneously.  I aspire to that, but will need to learn a lot more to get to that point...

Rich, K1DJ, still a lot more comfortable in CW!

Those strange-looking "other side of the world" grid squares come from people using WSJT-X's "NA VHF Contest" mode. In WSJT-X, go to File > Settings and find the check box for Enable VHF/UHF/Microwave features, check it, and then on the main WSJT-X window a check box for NA VHF Contest mode will appear. This mode will decode those strange grid squares correctly. When both stations are using this mode, an FT8 QSO can be completed more quickly than in normal mode. However, when stations using the normal mode and the special NA VHF contest mode contact one another, the auto-sequence feature of WSJT-X breaks at both ends of the QSO, so both operators will have to complete the QSO with some extra mouse clicks in the WSJT-X window.

When a contact made in NA VHF contest mode is logged in N1MM+, the signal report is logged as 59, whereas in normal FT8 mode the signal report is an S/N number. Since signal reports are not required in this contest, this difference is immaterial. Neither one will show up in the Cabrillo log.

Gave up with no solution to the problem.
 
Latest WSJTX version, latest N1MM+ version, latest LPB2 version, Windows 10( I know, that's the whole problem! ).
 
I am totally new to LPB2. I set it up to the best of my ability with the limited instructions it came with. I started LPB2 first, then WSJTX, then N1MM+. WSJTX would come up with above message, saying it could not communicate with the radio. Don't know why it changed its mind after an hour of problem-free operating.
 
So, until a better resolution to this can be found, I'm staying with the N3JFP VHF contest log for WSJTX mode contest logging.
