Re: Spectrum Window SDRplay RSP1A

cwgaloot@...
 

I have the RSPduo and have tried two configurations. The one Rich mentioned above but also another with a slight variation. 
Since running N1MM, keying and having Waterfall Bandmap in the same laptop was occasionally giving me some random
embarrassing keying blips, I discovered the CPU load was quite high and the fan was on all the time. I had another laptop 
so I put Waterfall Bandmap in it and configured N1MM to get data from it remotely. This arrangement works fine and the load is 
shared nicely; no more blips. A Winkeyer would be a nice addition on reflection. I tried this method in last weeks CWT
contest but discovered a different way that I realized works better for me:  I run RSPduo and Omnirig in the 2nd laptop
now. I do give up the N1MM spectrum window & spots. Spots are still in the telnet window if I ever want them. The
advantage I like with this setup is that I can now watch 2 bands with the RSPduo and switch instantly if something
appears on the 2nd band. I have a TS590 and connected the RSP to the DRV port and built a T/R device with a relay that connects
the RSP antenna I/P through a Minicircuits splitter to both antenna ports in the RSP so I can see the two bands. It also terminates
terminates the RSP in a 50 ohm load on transmit though I'm told this is not needed. There is no overloading and in addition
when used in this configuration, the RSP automatically mutes and applies 60dB attenuation. Having RSPduo in the 2nd
laptop gives me more screen real estate too. I needed to use both the USB and RS232 port in the TS590 for CAT
control but this works very well. During the last contest I ran unassisted and relied on SDRuno which was a better indicator of what
I could actually hear with my modest antennas. Until there is a Flex on the desk, this arrangement works for me.

If you plug your paddle into the Winkeyer, can you send CW from the paddle? If not, there is something wrong between the Winkeyer and the radio's CW key jack, such as a bad cable, loose connection, etc.

If you can send CW from the WInkeyer using a paddle, but not using the keyboard, the problem is between the WInkeyer and the computer. After checking in the Windows Device Manager that the COM port number that Windows has assigned to the Winkeyer is COM3 , open the N1MM+ Configurer, check that there is an entry for COM3 with Radio set to None and the CW/Other check box checked, click on the Set button for that port, and make sure the Winkey check box in the port setup is checked. You don't need to change any of the other settings in this window.

My radio is the same as yours, FT1000mp MkV. and getting rid of the old .ini file got rid of the problem - don't delete it, just rename it. 
I had even drawn a matrix of all possible settings of the RTS/DTR/PTT via radio etc on both the com ports I'm using, and tried all possible combinations known to man, and a few that God only knew. Nothing changed the fact that the software turned on the TX when loaded, although occasionally if the transceiver was on CW it didn't happen.The only thing that worked was a new .ini file. That's worked fine ever since. I presume you restarted you computer once rid of the old .ini file and that there now a brand new .ini file as well as the one you renamed ?

Re: Band Panel Frequencies

Michael,

If you are only operating two contests...

Once you have defined the two contests (>File >New Log in Database) and you begin operating the contest(s), you can quickly Hot-Key between those two contests by typing <alt>F, 2 (>File, then the number 2). This "feature" works because, when trying to jump between only two contests, the opposite contest will always be the second (#2) in the contest list.

How do you configure the Band Panel frequencies? When I hover my
mouse over a button it says what frequency it will QSY to. When
I select PH, it seems to go to the last frequency I was tuned to
on phone. But when I go to DIG, I can't get it to go to the
digital frequency, i.e. 14070 for 20m. Instead, it goes to
14.200 for 20m Dig and 7251.12 for 40m DIG,
3995.93 on 80m DIG. It doesn't seem to matter what frequency I
was on the last time I was in DIG mode. Since I predominately
use PSK31, I would like it to go to 14070, 7070, and 3580
accordingly. Any way to code this or configure it someplace?

Now, to really dream, it would also be nice if, when I selected
DIG, it could switch the mode of my IC-7300 to USB-D and back to
USB/LSB when I go back to PH.

Rotor Control via PstRotatorAz?

Rick Tavan
 

I'm working on getting rotor control working in what will become a rather complex environment described below. Taking it step by step, I first got N1MM_rotor.net.exe working fine on a single computer via N1MM Logger. I can type in a call or heading and alt-J turns the rotor.  Then I set up PstRotatorAz on the same computer and it controls the rotor manually. I used the Setup facility in PstRotatorAz to specify the same Rotor Name that I was using with N1MM_rotor and in the Config | Antennas section of N1MM Logger. I left the default Rotor and Radio ports at 12040 and 12060 in PstrotatorAz Setup | Trackers | N1MM and checked Radio in MM Config | Broadcast Data, set to 127.0.0.1:12060. Rotor is set up there for 127.0.0.1:12040 although there is no check box for that line; I guess it's always active? I type a call sign or heading into the MM Entry Window, hit alt-J, and nothing happens. I suspect MM isn't talking with PstRotatorAz. Any advice?

I'll have more steps to go once I get past this. My eventual target is N1MM Logger running on a control computer that is also running the client side of PstRotatorAz at one QTH, talking to a machine at the other QTH that runs the server side of PstRotatorAz controlling the rotor. But for this step in the evolution, I'm just trying to use MM and PstRotator on a single machine.

Thanks & 73,

Re: Band Panel Frequencies

When it comes to the band buttons you will find that if you right click on the entry window and select Change band Panel Display and select each of the bands you want to use and then save them the correct last used frequencies will be displayed. I just tried this before I ate and if I did not have any of the bands selected the digital frequencies were showing odd frequencies on each band and would not show the correct ones. After I selected the bands I wanted to use the frequencies started to track correctly..

That is the problem. It is not storing the last frequency, at least for the digital mode. Yesterday, when I selected 20m DIG, it always went to 14200, regardless of what frequency I last operated on digital. After one of the many crashes last night, it changed to 14000. Any time I now select 20m DIG, it goes to 14000 and I have to tune to 14070. I also have to manually select USB-D, as N1MM will not change the mode. In the Mode Control configuration, there is no option to select USB-D, even though the documentation says USB-D is supported for the IC-7300.
Likewise the other bands, the last digital frequency is not remembered.
Sometimes, it will return to the last PH frequency, sometimes it doesn't.

In the mode control for my 7300 I have AFSK set for RTTY and I have AFSK-R set for PSK. When I switch to each of the digital modes the radio follows correctly to either LSB-D or USB-D if I switch to PSK.. I also have on the left side of the mode control pane set to Follow radio.

I just opened a SD QSO party and the software logs MCOO just fine. It is also displayed in the Multiplier.
Maybe you entered MC00 (M-C-zero-zero).

Record the time of the QSO. Go back to that frequency and log the contact again. Then update the time and delete the problem QSO.

Working the SD QSO Party, I worked a station in McCook county. In the Counties/Mult window, it is listed as MCOO, which is what I put in the EXCHANGE box. No matter how I entered it, I always got a pop up that it is an invalid exchange. I finally said YES to accept MCOO anyway. It lit up the box for MCOO in the Counties/Mult window, but the log does not show it as a multiplier (no red check in the M1 column), and it gives me no points for the contact.

How do I fix this?

Re: Band Panel Frequencies

Michael,

Your question wasn't clear. I answered what I thought you were asking about.

The program stores the last frequency used per band and mode. When you return to a band, the software returns to the last used frequency. Make sure you configure Mode Control to program the digital modes correctly for your radio.

This does not address the original question. How do I set the frequency the radio goes to when I select a button on the Band Panel? For instance, when I click on 20m DIG, it always goes to 14200. Nobody does digital there. Since I usually use PSK31, I want to go to 14070. So, whenever I hit 20 DIG, I have to retune the radio to 14070 and set it to USB-D. It would be nice if it went to that configuration just by hitting 20m DIG.

Michael,

Right click in the Entry window to set the bands. The modes are determined by the Category Mode selection in the contest setup dialog and the contest rules. The band selection is saved by contest name.

The radio will switch modes if you select the proper option in Configurer, Mode Control tab. The right side of that dialog will determine what mode the radio is programmed to when you click on PSK or RTTY. The left side selections determine if you want the radio mode to change.

How do you configure the Band Panel frequencies? When I hover my mouse
over a button it says what frequency it will QSY to. When I select PH,
it seems to go to the last frequency I was tuned to on phone. But when
I go to DIG, I can't get it to go to the digital frequency, i.e. 14070
for 20m. Instead, it goes to 14.200 for 20m Dig and 7251.12 for 40m
DIG,
3995.93 on 80m DIG. It doesn't seem to matter what frequency I was on the last time I was in DIG mode. Since I predominately use PSK31, I would like it to go to 14070, 7070, and 3580 accordingly. Any way to code this or configure it someplace?

Now, to really dream, it would also be nice if, when I selected DIG, it could switch the mode of my IC-7300 to USB-D and back to USB/LSB when I go back to PH.

Re: How do i get the county list for pa qso party

John Bednar
 

Jay,

 

I believe you are operating from PA.

Click Window, Multipliers, Counties/Other.

If you don’t see all of the County abbreviations, right click in the Multipliers window and unchecked “Show Only Worked &Expected to be worked mults”.

 

To view the NV County abbreviations, click Window, Multipliers, Additional Counties. If needed, right click in the new multipliers window and unchecked “Show Only Worked &Expected to be worked mults”.

There is was, in plain sight.  I should have seen it.  Sorry for the false alarm.  Thanks, Steve.

Some interfaces use DTR or RTS to power the interface. 
Try using the other one for power.

What is your CAT interface used.

That sounds as if you are using RTS on the CAT control port for PTT, but your interface requires RTS on the CAT control port to be always on for it to work. If that is the case, you may not be able to use RTS on the CAT control port for PTT - you may have to use a different serial port for PTT from the port you are using for CAT control.

As soon as I renamed it, I got a warning. I went anyway and then it just automatically created a new (original named) file and also still had mine with my added “RED” at the end.

as far as the DNR always on as well as the other suggested settings. When I change RTS, as long it’s not always on, then the radio won’t key up continuously but then it doesn’t read my frequency either
