Re: LoTW

According to the tQSL help file (and consistent with my own experience), a .tq6 file will only work in the computer it was created on. It cannot be moved to another computer. To move a certificate to a different computer, you need to save it to a "certificate container" (.p12) file on the first computer, or else save all of your certificates, preferences, etc. en masse to a backup (.tbk) file. You can then transfer the .p12 or .tbk file to the second computer and load your certificate(s) from it into tQSL on that computer.

Re: N1MM Plus with K3 changes K3 DATA SUBMODE unexpectedly

ve3ki
 

In the N1MM+ Configurer, select the Mode Control tab. On the right side of the window is an area for "Mode sent to radio". For RTTY, if you want the K3 to be in AFSK A, set the "mode sent to radio" to AFSK. If you want the K3 to be in FSK D, set the "mode sent to radio" to RTTY. For other digital modes, go to the line called PSK, and if you want the K3 to be in DATA A, set the "mode sent to radio" to PSK (despite what it looks like, this will not put the K3 into PSK D - the K3's PSK D mode is not supported by N1MM+).

This "mode sent to radio" is sent whenever you change frequency from the program, whether by entering a new frequency, by clicking on a band panel button, or by jumping to a spot in the Bandmap or Spectrum Display windows. From your description, it was probably set to RTTY, which puts the K3 into FSK D.

Re: LoTW

Dave Sublette <k4to@...>
 

Thanks to all who offered advice. The N1MM+ software is remarkable and I am using it as a general logging program.  I also use the rotator section to turn rotators on two towers.  I love it.  As Skip pointed out, N1MM+ won't directly upload to LoTW.  That was my intended question.  Having determined that, I went ahead and did the whole TQSL thing (for the third time), exported my entries from N1MM+ to an ADIF file, and uploaded it earlier today.  It wasn't as bad as I thought it might be.

this time I used my Mac computer and everything went smoothly.  My previous experience was with a PC.  It didn't help that I have lost two computers over the past few years and each time, the TQSL thing had to be redone.  

I am running Windows 7/64 using parallels on a Mac Mini computer. The Mac runs Windows better than any of my PCs ever did. It is more stabile.  I choose to stay with Win7 because Win10 is just too difficult to control.  Microsoft seems to think they know what I want in a computer better than I do.  And they don't.

So I run ham radio software on the Windows side and everything else, web surfing, email, etc... on the Mac side -- simultaneously.  I've done this for years now and it works.

I've used all of the big name logging programs -- LOGic , LogWindows and HRD for years also, but left them when they started charging a yearly fee to use or were bought and abandoned. They were all too complex anyway.

While I am in my "old timer" mode, I will say that while computers are marvelous, I have noted that my operating time reduced to less than half what it was before I started using computers to "make things easier".  I find far too much time is wasted maintaining the software and chasing O/S and hardware problems.  It takes away from operating time.  Unfortunately, we are now a society that is dependent on them.

Enough griping -- thanks again to all.

Re: N1MM "monitor" - feature request?

Peter Krüger
 

That maybe an interesting request - but it must be setup externally - ATHENA is for sure very good for generic visualization.
On the other hand I think, that SH5! may be used - get the TRN File automatically - convert on second PC to ADIF - load it in SH5! and show the interesting areas.
That can be automated via AutoHotKey how the data should be presented (if the second PC is without keyboard, mouse, ...)

My SW n1mm+toolbox collect the UDP data automatically - and adding some graphically evaluation based on the data could be may be done very easy (I may be only an additional class which is threaded collecting the data and print it out ...). The SW is written in Python3.5 + PyQT5 GUI. As I am not a pythonic guy - it is a little bit ... software ... but it works :)

Overall it may be a real nice project for the winterseason :) -

The easiest thing to do is to bcc the following email address:

logs@...

...when you submit your log to the sponsor’s robot after each contest.

Please DO NOT send ADIF files!

You can send more than one log attachment in a single email BUT PLEASE DON’T SEND THEM IN A ZIP file!

If you want to check the version of the SCP files you are using, look for a call beginning with “VER2". Every SCP file includes the version number in the list of calls in the format VERYYYYMMDD.

The next release of the database will be at the beginning of November 2018. Any requested changes or deletions of callsigns received by NOON PST on November 1st, 2018 will be included in that release.

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SEND ADD/CHANGE MESSAGES WITHOUT ATTACHED LOGS OTHERWISE I PROBABLY WON’T SEE YOUR REQUEST due to the email processing robot.

Re: getting ts-590sg to key with fldigi

ve3ki
 

When using fldigi for digital modes from inside N1MM+, N1MM+ does all of the rig control communication with the rig.

If COM11 is the port that is connected to the rig's radio control port, then in the N1MM+ Configurer you enter a line for COM11, set the Radio type to Kenwood, click on the Set button and set the baud rate, etc. to whatever the rig requires. See <http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-index.php?page=Supported+Radios&structure=N1MM+Logger+Documentation#TS-590_REAL_AMP_TS-590D> and <http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-download_file.php?fileId=618>.

You need to configure the path to fldigi in the Digital Modes tab in the N1MM+ Configurer. Note that the copy of fldigi you run from inside N1MM+ must not be in the Program Files path - see <http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-index.php?page=Digital+-+Fldigi+for+Sound+Card+Modes&structure=N1MM+Logger+Documentation>. With fldigi running from the N1MM+ Digital Interface window (*not* stand-alone), in fldigi's configuration window under Rig, select the XML-RPC tab and check the check box that says "Use XML-RPC program". Do not use flrig, RigCat or Hamlib.

I can't tell what COM6 is from your message, nor what you mean by "USB keying" - CW keying, PTT control or FSK keying?? You can do PTT control via the rig control port (COM11?) by using CAT commands from N1MM+ (there is a check box for that in the port setup window for the rig control port), but AFAIK you cannot key CW or FSK via the same port - I believe you need a separate serial port (COM6?) connected to some kind of keying interface to do those with that radio. For RTTY from fldigi, you can either use AFSK, or a nanoIO device to do FSK. For CW with N1MM+, fldigi is not normally involved.

Re: N1MM "monitor" - feature request?

Larry K8UT
 

Rich VE3KI has already provided a method for monitoring a contest by configuring a network with two PCs and using the "upstairs" PC as a read-only display. The good news is that Rich's solution can be accomplished today with the current features of N1MM+; the bad news is that this solution is complicated and could have an impact on the logging computer if things go wrong.

A Remote Contest Monitor application would require two major elements: 1. Easy access to log data (without impacting logging performance); and 2. Summarizing/displaying the log data on that remote monitor. Fortunately, N1MM+ already has a method for low-impact log access with its TRN files (#1) and there is a simple solution for distributing that file to a second computer (the TRNmirror utility). Unfortunately, missing is #2 - an application to read/summarize/display the information.

If there are any developers out there who'd like to tackle task #2, I would volunteer to assist as liaison from the N1MM+-side of things.

Hi,
First post on this group.

I would like to have N1MM running on a computer "downstairs" showing off the progress, log data, points, contacts per region / band, etc...
According to the online documentation, due to the way N1MM+ works when connected in network, I believe that having a third party application could affect how well the N1MM+ software works.

My questions to the group is: What is the best way to make this happen? Have you tried this before? If so, did you just run N1MM on that computer? Did this affect your log in any way? Any tips you may want to share?
If too many of you have worked around this, It can probably turn into a feature request: "monitor mode" install for N1MM+

Apologize in advance if this was discussed already. I just got to the group and couldn´t find "search group" option.
