It appears the Russia WW RTTY contest log is not set up correctly.  The contest requires a Nr sent and Nr rec'd, not the CQ Zone.  Was there an update I missed?

Re: N1MM+ Documentation error: CQ Band Change Rules

The documentation for CQ WW CWSSB and CQ WPX CW/SSB has been corrected.

While reading the N1MM+ online documentation for CQ WW SSB/CW contest setup at

https://n1mmwp.hamdocs.com/manual-supported/contests-setup/#cq-world-wide-dx-contest-cw-ssb

I read the following:
Band changes
    The allowed band changes are 8 for all CQ Contests

Likewise in the section for the CQ WPX SSB/CW contest I see the same blurb about 8 band changes for *all* CQ contests at
https://n1mmwp.hamdocs.com/manual-supported/contests-setup/#cq-world-wide-wpx-contest-cw-ssb

That not quite true.  There are 3 different band change rules in the CQ contests, depending upon whether its a DX or WPX contest, whether its SSB/CW or RTTY and whether your entry class is Multi-One (with 2nd mult transmitter in CQ WW, but not CQ WPX) or Multi-2.   These being 8 band changes per clock hour, 10 band changes per clock hour, or the 10-minute rule where once you make a QSO on a new band you can't make any valid QSOs on yet another band with that transmitter until 10 minutes has elapsed.

For all Multi-2 the rule is indeed 8 band changes per clock hour for both transmitters. 

For Multi-One in the CW/SSB WPX & RTTY WPX contests the single transmitter  is allowed 10 band changes per clock hour. 

For Multi-One in the CQ WW RTTY contest the run and mult transmitters are allowed 8 band changes per clock  hour. 

The upcoming CQ WW SSB and CQ WW CW contests are outliers in that they call for a "10-minute rule" for each transmitter in Multi-One, (still 8 band changes per clock hour for Multi-2).
Quoting from the CQ WW SSB/CW rules:

1. Single Transmitter (MULTI-ONE): Only one transmitted signal on one band permitted during any 10-minute period (run station/signal). Exception: One — and only one — other transmitted signal (multiplier station/signal) may be used during any 10-minute period, if — and only if — it is on a different band from the run transmitter and the station worked is a new multiplier. The run and multiplier transmitters are governed by independent 10-minute rules. Ten-minute periods begin with the first QSO on a band. The log must indicate which station/signal (run or multiplier) made each QSO. The multiplier station/signal may not call CQ (solicit contacts). Please be sure to read the Multi-Single FAQ section at <cqww.com/rules_faq.htm>.

Of course the contest sponsors could change the rules tomorrow, and indeed there may have been changes to the band change rules since the referenced sections of the N1MM+ manual was produced.  Its only recently that I've had any cause to read any "Multi" rules.

This can all be verified at:

https://cqwwrtty.com/rules.htm
https://cqwpxrtty.com/rules.htm
https://cqwpx.com/rules.htm
https://cqww.com/rules.htm

Please confirm and make updates to N1MM+ documentation accordingly, or perhaps  just drop the "all CQ contests allow 8 band changes per hour" assertion.  Single OPs of course can ping pong around the bands without constraint AFAIK.

Re: Russia WW RTTY Contest Log

ve3ki
 

Different contests.

You didn't say which contest type you were trying to use, but I am guessing it is the RUSDXRTTY contest type. As described in the list of supported contests, this contest takes place on the first weekend in September. The full contest name is "Russian DX RTTY", and the rules are at <http://www.qrz.ru/contest/detail/93>.

The contest that takes place this weekend (the first weekend in October) is called the "Russian WW Digi" contest - not the same. It has different rules (<http://www.rdrclub.ru/rdrc-news/russian-ww-digital-contest/51-rus-ww-digi-rules>). I did not find an entry in the supported contests list for this specific contest, but looking at the rules, except for the mode they appear to be the same as the rules for the Russian DX PSK Contest (contest type RUSDXPSK). I'd suggest that you try using the RUSDXPSK contest type but operate in RTTY (or PSK63) mode instead of PSK31.

Re: Error opening com3

Marco Spalluzzi
 

Richard,
disabled com3, pc reboot requested: made.
Started microkeyer, say com3 will not work: right, it's disabled.
Enabled com3 from pc control panel (no reboot requested, no reboot made).
Run microkeyer, no messages about com3: right, it's enabled now.
Run N1MM, no "error opening com3" messages at startup, but if I put radio on cw and press a key where a message is stored, I still geto into a message like "error sending cw. check port selection in the configuration dialog.
And still no wav files are sent out.
Any other idea?

Re: Telnet connection error #n1mm

Alex, you're still not telling us what happened when you tried to connect to other clusters listed in MM+, but since you were able to connect to NC7J that pretty much eliminates MM+ and your Windows installation as the culprits.  The only thing I can suggest is that you try some other very well-established nodes, such as W9PA or W3LPL.  The cluster list is only updated every year or so, and inevitably there is some "churn" as people lose interest, have hardware problems, move, etc.

Hi guys, I used N1MM Logger (not Logger+) in cqww rtty and everything worked fine (also today).
Now I have problems when trying to tx on cw or on ssb.
Run 775dsp and microkeyer, pc is Win8.1.
I start N1MM and I get into an "error opening com3", which is the com I setted for cw in the configuration ports.
Check the settings (I made no changes for years); com3 is:
- flagged on cw
- dtr Always on
- rts Always off
- no other flags on other voices, cw/ptt port address is 3E8
Same settings for 4 years, Always worked.
Rebooted the pc twice, no changes.
Disconnected/reconnected microkeyer, no changes.
If I play sample cw messages from the microkeyer, it works, so it's not an hw problem.

Radio is ok, I change bands, vfo frequency on the bandmap, all ok.
Plus, when on ssb, I have a "file not found" message when pressing a key to play a wav file.
I think is related to the com3 error, since everything worked normally until now.
What can I check more?
Alternatively, can anyone give me the settings that you use?
