Why didn't you try using RUS-WW-DIG , change mode from RTTY to DIGITAL and swap between MMVARI and MMTTY(FSK) or stay in MMVARI and use AFSK for both.
It worked for me earlier !

Or get a junk small for free second monitor like a old 640 by 480 one, and put stuff that needs to be BIG on that monitor.

Dunno if it's actually helpful, but when enabled (some accessibility thing, I'm sure), the Windows-key & plus-key combo brings up an OS-wide screen magnifier. Perhaps it'd help to zoom in to the area you're trying to read, even if only temporarily?

Thanks John!  

Re: PAQP Multi-op serial numbers

John Bednar
 

Selecting Multi-Op (Operator Category contains "Multi") and Transmitter Category = Unlimited sets serial numbers by band.

If you have a large number of computers, this reduces the overhead on the serial number reservation system.

It also allows you to send shorter serial numbers.

N1MM Rotor with Yaesu Rotors

Chuck Dietz
 

I have been trying to get N1MM Rotor to work for a LONG time. Using Yaesu rotors and Yaesu controllers. I have the "Antennas" setup in config and the correct ports and names in the N1MM Rotor setup screen, but nothing happened. No direction indication and no turning. I finally, on a whim, tried changing the rotor type to "DCU" and when I tried to move the rotor, the Yaesu controller "clicked." The first time I have been able to get any reaction. I then tried "Rotor EZ" and it is working! I say all this because someone else may have this same problem.

    I think you are talking about RUS-WW-DIG contest. Yes, there was a bug that caused setting CQ zone in the Default Exchange Field instead of  serial number (#) if your previous contest was RTTY contest (with “RTTY” in the contest name). This is fixed and will be in the next release.

Re: Russia WW RTTY Contest Log

I had some similar problems identifying which contest to use.  An easy solution that should work ... Click on the Show Rules:" button and see if it takes you to a contest with the right dates.

And what a weird contest it was!  The bands were full of participants yesterday afternoon (US East Coast), but in the evening, it looked like everyone had gone to bed just when 40 and 80 would have been at their best.  Oh well..

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: N1MM+ Documentation error: CQ Band Change Rules

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

73,
Rich VE3KI


On Sat, Oct 5, 2019 at 12:44 PM, Victor Paul wrote:
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.
