Config for IC-9700

Knut Meland
 

Are there any plans for influding the new IC-9700 in the list of radios in the hardware config menu? It's a VHF/UHF radio, I know, but it might be a good idea to use N1MM for VHF/UHF tests.

Edited

I should have said, yes, the PTT-KEY menu was set to OFF-dtr already, and which is how WSJT-x was made to work.

EDITED
Fount the problem. On the K3s the MENU item MIC+LIN was set to OFF. Changed to On and I have .wav playback

Peter,

 

My config settings match yours, except I don’t have the pTT via Radio Command boxes checked.

 

Do you also have the Config menu  setting selected in the K3 for PTT-KEY, to “off-DTR” – that is what I’m  using and CW works fine thru USB (on two radios).

Subject: [N1MMLoggerPlus] Questions about N1MM+ with an Elecraft K3s via USB #K3

 

Hi all,

I'm transitioning away from the Microham MK-II and need to control N1MM via USB exclusively. I managed to get this working once, a long time ago, but for the life of me I can't understand what settings to use now.

With the K3s plugged in to the computer it creates a single COM port, COM-5. I have CAT control working fine and I can assert PTT in one configuration only*, but I can't actually send CW, nor can I send .WAV files. I have no audio cabling connected to the radio at this point; just the single USB connection to a motherboard port on the PC. Where am I going wrong here?

Please 'n' thanx.

* the config that asserts PTT is as follows:

PORT = COM5, RADIO=Elecraft K3, CW/Other=checked, 38400/N/8/1, DTR=CW, RTS=Always Off, check boxes beside "enable both hardware/software PTT, PTT via radio command in both SSB and CW modes; not checked for Digital.

This is described at <http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-index.php?page=Supported+Radios&structure=N1MM+Logger+Documentation#K3_and_K3S> - the CWsetup is described near the bottom of the section. The key step you are probably missing is to set the K3's CONFIG:PTT-KEY to OFF-DTR.

For wav file audio, see <http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-download_file.php?fileId=3733>.

Do *NOT* check Enable both hardware/software PTT. If you are using software PTT, just check the PTT via Radio Command boxes for whichever modes you want to use PTT with and forget about hardware PTT. (Alternatively, you can use hardware PTT on RTS with CONFIG:PTT-KEY set to RTS-DTR, in which case do not check any of the PTT via radio command boxes.)

Using hardware PTT on the radio control port may or may not be successful, i.e. with many computers it turns out that the CW timing with this method just isn't good enough, depending on what else is on your USB bus, what background services are running in WIndows, ... . If that happens to you, spend $18 on a Mortty CW keyer (<http://hamprojects.info/mortty/>) and use it to key CW (and PTT, if you want).

Followup: I've managed to get CW keying functional, but not SSB voice files. Can this be done using the K3s's built-in USB sound card exclusively?

Re: Multiple ini files

In File Explorer, select the View > Options menu/ribbon item. Click on the View tab in the window that shows up. Look down the list for an option called "Hide extensions for known file types". The Windows default for this is checked - uncheck it and now you will be able to see the full names of files instead of having to deduce them from the file type.

Girard,

 

Are you using a USB to COM port converter? The converters that use a FTDI chipset work well for sending CW. The Prolific chipset based USB to COM converters have long latency and are not suitable for sending CW.

 

If you are using a FTDI converter with a USB Hub, bypass the hub. Connect the converter directly to the computer.

Re: Multiple ini files

Your Windows is likely just not showing the file extensions. The files you are seeing are named *.INI.bak. The INI extension may be hidden. In this case, look for a file called "N1MM Logger" and has a type of INI file.

Hi Henry

150% will definitely cause many text fields to overflow their boundaries in N1MM dialog windows. After some experimentation, I settled on 120% as the largest size that still fit everywhere.

The problem was.......my screen scale setting was at 150%. This did not allow the full display of the CONFIGURE page, and it bumped the top of the screen when attempting to drag it.

Setting back to 100% solved the problem. Works great now. Tough getting old.

Tnx for starting me thinking, Tom!
