I have several radically different radio setups that I use. I've been managing it by having several N1MM Logger.ini files that I swap in by hand before launching the program. But this has the disadvantage that I need to remember to save it off afterwards if I want any changes to be remembered.

For example, when I'm operating at StationX, I first copy the file "StationX.ini" to "N1MM Logger.ini", then launch N1MM Logger.  Then, when I'm done, I copy "N1MM Logger.ini" back to "StationX.ini", so any "recent contests" or moved windows or whatever, can be saved.

Is there any way to do this in a more elegant way? 

If not, I imagine a feature request would be to simply be able to specify the default INI file.  There could be a "configuration" menu where you chose the ini file to use.  That would be sticky, and all changes would go into that ini file.   Of course, somewhere the choice of INI file would have to be remembered (a "meta-INI file").  Or perhaps, a backwards compatible way would be. . . 

Have a new tag in the INI file.  If this is not present, then the INI file itself is where everything is read from and saved.  But if that tag is present, and points to a valid INI file, then that file is used and the master INI file is untouched.

Thanks Rick. I took com 5 out of the Configurer and all is well. The article the link refers to I guess is not quite right or I read it wrong. Probably the latter :-).

If there is some reason that you need N1MM+ to be able to use COM5 for PTT or CW keying in SSB or CW mode, what I would do is create two separate configurations, one for CW/SSB with COM5 mentioned in the Configurer for CW and SSB, and a separate one for RTTY in which COM5 is not mentioned at all in the Configurer (only in EXTFSK64).

Re: SO2R with 2 sound cards?

ERIC OLSON
 

Rich,

Wow!  I have never tried Logger+ audio as I have never had a need but this 2 soundcard SO2R setup goes under the “way too easy” category.  The setup was pretty straightforward and I like how it is working.  Even got MMVARI working mono on radio 1 for RTTY if needed.

 

Thanks for the help!!

Thank you.  I am concerned with SSB for now and using the wav files in ESM.  I have not used Logger+ audio yet as I have not used the letter/ number voicing but will see if I can get it configured and tested this evening.  If not will use a simpler approach this weekend in the salmon run and work on the fancy stuff later.

My Winkeyer USB handles the CW for 2 radios.

The original question did not specify the mode. The programming is done separately for digital modes (in the digital engines) vs. CW/SSB (in N1MM+ itself). With respect to voice modes or CW receiving, if you are using Logger+ audio there are three different choices for the soundcard: a single soundcard (mono), which relies on external switching to route audio to the sound card; a single soundcard L/R, which uses a single 2-channel (stereo) sound card with each radio routed to its own channel in the sound card; and two soundcards (mono), which uses a separate sound card for each radio.

In digital modes, the various digital engines each have their own sound card selection configuration settings, so they can be configured either to share the same data stream for diversity decoding, or to use different data streams for SO2R and SO2V. The two channels in a single stereo sound card can be used for different data streams, so it is not necessary to have separate sound card devices. Alternatively, different digital engines can use separate sound card devices (Windows can support several sound cards in the same system.)

There is no requirement for a KVM switch.

Re: "Divide by zero" error message

Did you find a solution to this issue? I have the same problem. I saw this last year and discovered that it was caused by the size of the MMTTY window started by N1MM. Last year I was able to shrink the size of the MMTTY window and it fixed the problem. This year on a new computer the problem has returned but I can not select the window to resize it smaller.

If COM5 is the port that is used by EXTFSK64, COM5 should not be mentioned in the N1MM+ Configurer. N1MM+ cannot open COM5 if EXTFSK64 already has it open.

If there is some reason that you need N1MM+ to be able to use COM5 for PTT or CW keying in SSB or CW mode, what I would do is create two separate configurations, one for CW/SSB with COM5 mentioned in the Configurer for CW and SSB, and a separate one for RTTY in which COM5 is not mentioned at all in the Configurer (only in EXTFSK64).

Steve,

 

  If you go to the downloads section of N1MM I wrote a Word doc explaining the N1MM settings and the TS 890 settings you will need for CW and RTTY with the USB cable.

I had a TS870 and now a 590. Kenwood does have a CW send command but that method is really not a very good way to send CW. If you want good CW you should use a keyer. Winkeyer is probably the way to go.

Folks... I see where this topic has come up already, but I have not either seen a solution or if it is possible; maybe I've missed something. I want to not use any interface on the Kenwood TS-890 other than the usb cable to the computer. I have the drivers installed and have two virtual com ports up and working. I want to send CW over to the radio via N1MM. I can key the radio, but no cw output; N1MM does read the radio's frequency. 
Any help here please and thanks in advance.

 I've set up my 890 according to this link. Com5 is my virtual port. When I start N1MM it says com5 not functioning. If I go in and out of configuration, it tells me com5 is already in use. If I go on, I can key/PTT the radio but get no diddle. I guess I am missing something. I have shut down the radio including the power supply and rebooted the PC. 
Well as a follow up I figured out to change EXTFSK64  FSK output to RTS and PTT output to DTR to make diddle work. Now everything seems to work but I still get those error messages. This is the latest N1MM.

Re: SO2R with 2 sound cards?

Thank you.  I am concerned with SSB for now and using the wav files in ESM.  I have not used Logger+ audio yet as I have not used the letter/ number voicing but will see if I can get it configured and tested this evening.  If not will use a simpler approach this weekend in the salmon run and work on the fancy stuff later.

My Winkeyer USB handles the CW for 2 radios.

The original question did not specify the mode. The programming is done separately for digital modes (in the digital engines) vs. CW/SSB (in N1MM+ itself). With respect to voice modes or CW receiving, if you are using Logger+ audio there are three different choices for the soundcard: a single soundcard (mono), which relies on external switching to route audio to the sound card; a single soundcard L/R, which uses a single 2-channel (stereo) sound card with each radio routed to its own channel in the sound card; and two soundcards (mono), which uses a separate sound card for each radio.

In digital modes, the various digital engines each have their own sound card selection configuration settings, so they can be configured either to share the same data stream for diversity decoding, or to use different data streams for SO2R and SO2V. The two channels in a single stereo sound card can be used for different data streams, so it is not necessary to have separate sound card devices. Alternatively, different digital engines can use separate sound card devices (Windows can support several sound cards in the same system.)

There is no requirement for a KVM switch.

Interesting question Eric,
I assume you only want to use one computer and not two. Using two with a KVM switch to switch between the two machines is an easy enough way to get what you want.
Although I haven’t tried it, I would think that as long as each device creates a separate audio in and audio out device that windows can recognize and you can assign to different digital programs, that it should work.

SO2R with 2 sound cards?

ERIC OLSON
 

Is it possible to run SO2R with 2 sound cards?  One would be my simple USB sound card to the K3 and the other a Rigblaster Advantage to a FT1000MK5.  Or not possible in Windows?  Only one can be active at a time?  Tried last night and didn't work but thought of a few things I might change and try again but wondering if N1MM or Windows simply can't do that. Had 2 separate PTT set up which might be bad...?

Thanks

Re: Larger Data Entry Screen

VE9AA - Mike
 

"Somewhat" related.  I asked some time ago but did not see a reply

Is there a way to make the WAE QTC Window larger?

for CW it's not so much of a problem, as all I have to do as a non-EU is hit 1, 2 or 3 to repeat (once in a blue moon,pop the glasses on, read and send by hand) so I don't need to see the finer details of the size 8 font (or whatever it is)
BUT
For WAE SSB, I need to read off the times, stations and #'s.....necessitating me to put on my reading glasses. (I know, personal problem...hi hi) Hey, i am not a teenager anymore.

I would just rather not contest with glasses on if at all possible. I normally don't need them as I've made everything on the screen large enough to see most of the time, except that pesky ol' QTC window.

Thanks !

I did the prompted update to version 7952 earlier today on Windows 10 and it seemed to go OK.

However, now when I start the program again, I get the 404 error. This also happens if I try a Tools / Check. I went back to 7943 and it now also shows the same problem. Manually downloading and installing works OK so the files are available.

Larry,

The 404 error is gone now, but there is now a problem with the "Latest" update.

When I do a "Check for New program version and install...", I get a prompt to update to v1.0.7493 which is older than 7952 which I already have installed.
