Re: Prevent two multi-op stations on the same band

Michael Walker
 

Technical comment

In most radios, the Front End has exposure to all the RF at the antenna port unless there is an antenna disconnect or some sort of Band Pass Filter in front.  Each radio is different and you will have to check your schematics and or manufacturer.  This can also be a problem if the radio is even turned off.  

Flex radios can handle in band RF to some pretty high levels.  They warn the user at about 8dbm range and then shutdown at 15dbm at the antenna port.  At that point, the front end is clamped to ground and very well protected.

Subject: [N1MM+] Prevent two multi-op stations on the same band

 

The front end of a radio could be damaged if two radios are tuned to the same frequency at the same time and either one transmits. This could happen, for example, if a radio's band-change mechanism requires cycling through sequential bands. This is a different problem than preventing two radios from transmitting on the same band at the same time.

Of course, one could change bands with N1MM+ instead of using the radio's front-panel control to cycle through the bands, but N1MM+ still allows the two radios to be tuned to the same band. Since N1MM+ "knows" everything about two networked stations and can even prevent a "mult" station from calling CQ, so it seems as though it could prevent a station from attempting to move onto a band that another radio is already using.

Is there a switch somewhere in the program to effect this behavior?

Brad,

I do not know the FT-1000MP, but I am sure there are others here that do. Make sure you look at all the documentation N1MM+ offers. It includes details on interfacing and even specifics on nearly any compatible radio. I would start with just the radio first, once it is connected, you can ring up the BANDMAP, and confirm that the frequency is changing in N1MM+ when you tune the VFO on the radio. Then you are ready to start a great adventure.

73,

Tom, KG3V

For cables, I am using a serial-serial cable with which to connect the HF rig to the computer and an ordinary
printer cable to connect the WinKeyer USB to the computer. Is this the best way to go about hooking up these
components? Or should I be using something else, instead of what I have?

Also, does anything need to be done in the menu of the FT-1000MP for communicating with the computer?

Thanks in advance!

There is no need to change this radio setting when you configure the program correctly.  Look in the Additional Files section of the web page for the IC-7610 Setup document.  Let us know if you can't find it.

Need to use .WAV Files and Microphone.  Made WAV files work by setting DATA MOD OFF to USB in IC-7610 but then can't make microphone work.  If I set it to MIC, then WAV files don't work.

Saw some reference to this in archives, a broken link to a possible solution (don't know, haven't read it) and would really appreciate some specific help in getting this to work.

I experienced some strange behaviors with N1MM and Flex SSDR over this past weekend in the Stew Perry contest.  This was the first time I used SSDR 2.5.1 (Windows client) in a contest.  Before this I was using SSDR 2.4.9 with N1MM without issues.  

Four times the radio got stuck in TX enable.  The radio was keyed with red light on. It would not switch back to receive. This behavior was occurring randomly.  The first couple of times I just rebooted the radio in an effort to quickly get back to the contest.  The third and fourth time it happened I took some time and found that restarting N1MM cleared the problem.  So it seems there may be an issue with N1MM and SSDR.  I was using latest version of N1MM (1.0.7971.0) 

Two times I randomly lost audio from the radio.  The panadapter was full of signals but no sound coming out of my headphones or speakers.  Not sure if N1MM was to blame for this issue as I did not try to troubleshoot this during the contest.  I simply reboot the radio to get back into the contest.

I've never had this happen with 2.4.9 during a contest.  I have not had this happen with 2.5.1 outside of a contest.

I will report this to N1MM devs.

Anyone else having similar issues ?
