Re: WPXformat to CQWWformat...

You can't just import a WPX formatted ADIF into a WW log. They use different tag values and such.

The step by step instructions for what you want to do are in the FAQ in the Other Questions section.
"I have accidentally logged a contest using the wrong selection from the Contest Setup dialog. What can I do?"

Why would you want to copy a database like this? 
1. If you want to keep one database for all QSOs but log individual contests in an new database for maximum performance on slower computers.
2. If you want to keep a database for a particular time period and want to consolidate logs.

Re: TS-590 and N1MM CW Configuration

Rory Bowers
 

Hi Scott,
It seems to me that the "unable to send CW" and the radio's ability to communicate with your computer are two different issues.  Is your TS-590SG communicating with your computer?  Do you have frequency and mode control from your computer?
On the CW issue are you using a keyer software and hardware like WinKey?
Thanks!
Rory, K5CKS

There seem to be two schools of thought for those who don't like ESM. Some still use "Insert" and another key (traditionally in CT it was "+" on the number pad, though in N1MM it defaults to apostrophe (" ' ") between semicolon and the enter key on the home row). Others like everything in F2, then F3 functions to log the qso and send TU <my call>. Since N1MM has separate S&P and Run F-key definitions, in the latter case you're not stuck in the awkward position that your exchange includes the other stations call when S&P, which is a big faux pas. 

Unfortunately if you have multiple users who have different tastes, users who prefer to use F2 then F3 cannot use the same function key definition as everyone else. 

I don't use ESM, but I use Insert and NumPad +, so I get along ok with ESM users at multi-ops. I don't like when the computer decide what it's going to send when I press the same button. Call me a control freak...

Re: How to move to new PC?

Thanks for the advice Chuck. I’m always willing to learn how others do things.

Noel:

Sorry for the long, slightly off-topic. I'll just throw this out here,
but it's not a solution for everybody.

A couple weeks ago I moved to a new computer in my shack. The old one
was simply not up to the task anymore. Being a user of VirtualBox (free)
on other systems I decided to try moving the entire old system into a
"virtual machine" that I could simply run on the new computer. I've done
this before with earlier laptops and have thought of moving to only
running things under a virtual machine. Once you have the virtual
machine setup, moving to the next new computer is as simple as
installing VirtualBox, copying the virtual machine over and then running
it up on the new system. After that, it's just a matter of telling
VirtualBox to pass the desired interfaces to the virtual machine.

So I found out that I could use the Acronis backup software I use to
directly create a virtual drive file from a full system backup on the
old computer and did that (there's other ways to do that though). The
type of virtual drive file it produced wasn't a type that would load
directly into VirtualBox but VirtualBox comes with a utility that would
convert it to one that would. Having done that, installed VirtualBox on
the new system and copied the virtual drive, ran up VirtualBox, and
created the new virtual machine (hardly had to touch any of the
defaults).  The darn thing booted just fine and was up in running (sans
the hardware interfaces). That all took less that 2 hours, mostly waiting.

After that I configured the virtual machine in VirtualBox to pass the
USB interfaces for all my radios and serial devices to the virtual
machine. Presto! Everything was working fine. Now all that's running on
the "Host" operating system (Currently Windows 10, but could be other
systems) is VirtualBox. A move of this to my next system will literally
take minutes with it setup this way. Since I placed the Virtual Machines
on a second drive (SSD), moving them is as simple as moving the drive to
the new computer as long as I keep the drive letter the same.

The great thing about doing it this way is that all software already
installed in the old computer comes across to the new one without having
to re-install, copy data, or even setup icons on my desktop. Looking at
it, you wouldn't know it's not the old computer, other than it's much
faster.

This does take a computer with at least a decent quad-core processor (my
new one is a hex-core), at least  8 GB of memory, and should have SSD
drives with one large enough for virtual machines. With the price of a
1TB SSD down quite a bit, it's not that expensive.

So, as I say, this isn't for everyone, but if you're regularly updating
your hardware, it could be an option.

The IC-7300 radio setup instructions can be found here:

You should not have DTR or RTS set to Handshake for an Icom radio.

 I did get it working. One of the things was I had the dtr and rts set backwards. I did a couple of changes and now it works. Thanks to all. Bill WR4G

Change that to none unless you have them set up in the IC7300 which you can do, and it works great. Get the radio working first. Then worry about PTT and CW Keying.

Re: How to move to new PC?

Noel:

Sorry for the long, slightly off-topic. I'll just throw this out here, but it's not a solution for everybody.

A couple weeks ago I moved to a new computer in my shack. The old one was simply not up to the task anymore. Being a user of VirtualBox (free) on other systems I decided to try moving the entire old system into a "virtual machine" that I could simply run on the new computer. I've done this before with earlier laptops and have thought of moving to only running things under a virtual machine. Once you have the virtual machine setup, moving to the next new computer is as simple as installing VirtualBox, copying the virtual machine over and then running it up on the new system. After that, it's just a matter of telling VirtualBox to pass the desired interfaces to the virtual machine.

So I found out that I could use the Acronis backup software I use to directly create a virtual drive file from a full system backup on the old computer and did that (there's other ways to do that though). The type of virtual drive file it produced wasn't a type that would load directly into VirtualBox but VirtualBox comes with a utility that would convert it to one that would. Having done that, installed VirtualBox on the new system and copied the virtual drive, ran up VirtualBox, and created the new virtual machine (hardly had to touch any of the defaults).  The darn thing booted just fine and was up in running (sans the hardware interfaces). That all took less that 2 hours, mostly waiting.

After that I configured the virtual machine in VirtualBox to pass the USB interfaces for all my radios and serial devices to the virtual machine. Presto! Everything was working fine. Now all that's running on the "Host" operating system (Currently Windows 10, but could be other systems) is VirtualBox. A move of this to my next system will literally take minutes with it setup this way. Since I placed the Virtual Machines on a second drive (SSD), moving them is as simple as moving the drive to the new computer as long as I keep the drive letter the same.

The great thing about doing it this way is that all software already installed in the old computer comes across to the new one without having to re-install, copy data, or even setup icons on my desktop. Looking at it, you wouldn't know it's not the old computer, other than it's much faster.

This does take a computer with at least a decent quad-core processor (my new one is a hex-core), at least  8 GB of memory, and should have SSD drives with one large enough for virtual machines. With the price of a 1TB SSD down quite a bit, it's not that expensive.

Joe,

 

{OPERATOR}\EXCHANGE.WAV - produces a wavfile path.

 

{OPERATOR}\#   -  is NOT a wave file path.

 

The # character is a macro.

 

Did you try the macro followed by a wav file path?

F2 EXCH,#,{OPERATOR}\EXCHANGE.WAV

When I put the serial number AFTER the exchange, it plays the exchange and then the serial number. Like this,
F2 EXCH,{OPERATOR}\EXCHANGE.WAV,#
everything plays fine no errors or anything

But anytime I try to make it play infront of the exchange it throws an error,  Like when I have the string like this,
F2 EXCH,{OPERATOR}\#,EXCHANGE.WAV

Log error,,
