Re: CQMM Contest

Les Elliott
 

Some contests do not use the regular wl_cty.dat file

see Files>Additional Support Files
in this case - cty-CQM.dat

Some contests using UDCs have special cty.dat files, these are usually
supplied in the contest zip file.

Re: N1MM+ for simultaneous contests ??

Pete, when this feature that I love - being able to Alt-F 2 to flip between contests with stuff in the entry windows - disappeared last summer, I filed a bug report.

I was told by the developer that the way it used to work and I liked it to work was a bug, and I had obviously really miffed the guy because he told me about all the time he had invested in fixing this particular bug.

I will take your advice, and try writing it as a feature request and try to use super nice words to not miff the guy again. It sure would be nice to have it back again, for WAE-CW weekend which also includes the MD-DC QSO Party. I flip contests hundreds of times that weekend and it sure would be nice to do so with stuff in the entry box again.

The requirement that all entry fields be blank dates from last summer is a MAJOR USABILITY DEGRADATION for weekends with more than one contest.

TESTERS WANTED: Prototype website

Larry K8UT
 

For the past two months the N1MM Dev Team has been working to migrate the current website and its 900+ pages of documentation to a new platform. The work is 100% Content-complete and 90% Feature-complete.

Goals
The Primary Goal of the migration is to improve the ease-of-use in installing, configuring, and operating N1MM+ in contests. We cannot reduce the manual's page count, but we think we can deliver better tools for browsing and searching those pages to find the answers that you seek. Hopefully these better tools will bring you quick access to the right information and make you more self-sufficient.
The Secondary Goal is to reduce the burden on the N1MM Dev Team members, who find themselves answering, re-answering and re-re-answering questions that are difficult to get answered on our current ill-equipped website. This new platform should deliver on that primary goal of self-sufficiency.

New Features
At first glance the new website looks like the old website, but under-the-covers things are very different. Some of the most significant improvements are:
  • Reduced Web-Page Count - the material in the new N1MM Manual section consists of 31 web-pages, reduced from the current 104 web-pages. Fewer but Larger web-pages should eliminate much of the page-flipping when looking for answers with a browser's <ctrl>+F find function
  • Expanded Menu - navigate to one of those 31 pages directly from the drop-down menu
  • Search and Advanced Search - it works. It's fast. Sorted by Relevance. Results are highlighted on the page
  • Bug Reports and Feature Requests - transparent, search-able. Read your BRs and FRs on-line. Read postings from other users, and the Dev Team's responses, before deciding if you need to submit one
  • Explorer-like File Download - click-able hierarchy should be easy-to-use and familiar to anyone on Microsoft Windows
  • Single-table Supported Contests List - all 400+ supported contests are listed in one table that can be sorted, searched and filtered. Rather than having to know where to look before you look: Is this a UDC contest? An HF contest? A QSO Party? ...  
The Challenge to N1MM+ Users
If you have any spare time, please spend a little on the prototype website. Experiment with the new features listed above - particularly the Search, Advanced Search and Contests List. Create a bogus Bug Report and Feature Request. Leave comments, suggestions and questions in the Comments sections of the Prototype Description page. We hope to take the new website "live" in a few weeks and need some diligent testing before throwing that switch.

Right-click on an empty part of the entry window and select Show Band Panel, and possibly also Band Panel Left Click Enabled (if you want to be able to click on the buttons to change bands). You can change which bands appear using the Change Band Panel Display option. The columns are controlled by the choice of Mode category in the contest setup.

Re: TESTERS WANTED: Prototype website

Matt Murphy
 

The new site looks great, thanks to all involved for the great work. One suggestion I have (which I have seen used very effectively) is to put a comments area on each page to allow questions to be asked about the content on that page.  

Then, periodically, someone can update the page's content to improve upon it so the questions that were asked would not have been asked, while at the same time deleting the questions that were addressed by updating the content and leaving a blank slate for the next round of clarifications/questions.

Re: TESTERS WANTED: Prototype website

Looks nice.

One small request for the "supported Contest" list. It may be very nice, if every contest may have a column with the month - and with this someone may easier find a contest, which is running in the moment. (same for selection within N1MM+ may help a lot to avoid searching and trying ...)

Of course it is very useful and I am sure that most know to use it. But it doesn't tell you the N1MM+ contest name abbreviation. Being able to narrow down the choices for a given period is a fantastic idea. Month would be good and to the actual date would be fantastic.

I could even get carried away here and also suggest that the program's "New Log" dialog could be enhanced to offer "this weekend's choices" instead of the full list.

It might be more practical to see if we could
convince WA7BNM to include the 'N1MM Name'
in his listing ... more practical because the names
don't change, and thus would not have to be

That approach would also tell "at a glance"

Errors in scoring in the Ontario QSO Party operation for Mobile/Rover on County Lines

ve3agc@...
 

The scoring for the Ontario QSO Party when operating as a mobile or rover has two problems. The OnQP has a bonus for activating counties by having at least 3 qsos from 3 different call signs in a county. The bonus is 300 points per activated county. Currently no check is being done for this.

The second error is more serious and applies to county line operation with two or more counties. The logging works great in both CW and SSB. However the problem exists for the second and subsequent entries in the log for that contact. When the first entry is logged a check is made to see if the contact qualifies as a new multiplier. This check is not made for the second and subsequent contacts with the same station in the additional counties.
An example would be a contact from a county line with three counties present, say HTN,PEL and TOR in that sequence.when contact with VE3EJ in NIA county is made, there are three log entries in the log. If this is a new county entry with no previous NIA contacts by band the log entry for HTN will have a new multiplier check mark in the log. The remaining log entries for PEL and TOR will have no multiplier check mark even if they do not have any previous contacts for the VE3EJ county. This is present even in the first entries at the top of the log when there are no previous entries of any kind. No check is being made for previous contacts by the county sent by VE3EJ in these additional county log entries..
This results in a much lower score for the log as many multipliers are being missed.
This error occurs only for logging by mobile/rover stations operating from multi county lines. Logging from a single county has no problems, and fixed stations do not have the problem.

Re: Errors in scoring in the Ontario QSO Party operation for Mobile/Rover on County Lines

John Bednar
 

Bob,

 

It is true that the mobile/rover bonus points are not implemented. There are no plans to add this either. The three special callsign bonus is implemented.

 

I opened a new ON QSO Party log, logged VE3WG as a county line station in HTN/PEL/TOR.

The multiplier results are correct.

 

 

I tested this with my station call set to K3CT in EPA and VE3CT in ON.

 

Did I reproduce your report correctly?

 

Not

John, K3CT

Hi Larry,
 
I’ve had a bit of a go at this and was able to read documentation, the search seemed to work fine (though there’s a button called unlabelled 1 showing, that’s probably “search” or “go” that needs a label).
 
Sadly none of the downloads seemed to do anything for me, though the selected one was show, I couldn’t download it. Perhaps this material has yet to be added?
 
I didn’t find an option to submit a bug report, except guidance on how to submit one via the List.
 
Happy to discuss further or test specific things as necessary.
 
 
Cheers and 73,
 
Terry, GM3WUX

Re: Setting Up RTTY with Winkey 3.1

I can now select WinKey for RTTY. I have followed the K1EL setup guide, but not able to transmit. I am not printing the info I'm trying to xmit, not hearing the transmission. Using 2Tone, and not seeing a WinKey transmit option in the Setup menu. 

Has anyone successfully setup WinKey with 2Tone?

Re: Setting Up RTTY with Winkey 3.1

Rick Ellison
 

John.

You no longer need to use 2-tone for Winkey RTTY. Open the main config in N1MM. On the digital tab you will see 2 dropdowns to select the interface type for each entry window. Select Winkey from the dropdown. While you’re there set the path to what type of receiver you want to use. (The program already knows the path to MMVARI so that not needed just the path’s to MMTTY/2-tone or Fldigi. Next move over to the Winkey tab and select that you want to use Winkey RTTY and select the keying port you want to use. Next click on the hardware tab and configure the port Winkey is on like you would have done for cw.

When you open the digital window you will see the top portion where received text will be shown and a command window in the middle this will show the commands being sent to and from the Winkey. And At the bottom will be the normal tx window. Once you have the Digital window open you will need to create 3 macro’s to use with the Winkey. If you right click on the TX or RX buttons it will bring up the macro editor. The 3 macro’s you need to config are located on the right side of the editor TX, RX, ESC for TX enter [ for RX enter ] and for ESC enter \ once you have those 3 you should be all set and able to use the Winkey directly in N1MM. If you ave any questions let me know. I have been using the winkey for the last couple of contests and have had no issues with it..
