Max,

Whilst everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I thought this group was for those who wished to maximise the useability of Tom's excellent logging program, not a platform to pontificate on the ethics of using CW readers or other operating aids or modes.

Hi all,
 
during the CQWWCW contest last weekend I had some Q's which I added a note to. Now after the contest I want to find them, how can this be accomplished? I really don't want to click each single QSO in my list (over thousand) and see if it contains a "comment". Is there a way add a column "Note" in the logbook view and have it sorted by this column, so those QSOs get revealed?
 
any help appreciated. Thanks in advance

Re: Remote multi operator set-up

Andy (KU7T)
 

Holger,

The IP address you enter must be reachable.  That means BPN or port forwarding, where VPN is clearly easier. In fact, if you use a BPN you do not need to enter IP addresses, as you are on the same subnet.

It's the easiest if you have only one network adapter, sometimes the program gets confused if you have multiple as there are multiple routes.

Andy

Hi Chris
Thanks for the reply. That made me think it could be position related. On station is a K3 with serial interface and the other one is Flex6600 using WinKey emulation (?). Will have to try/check this.
Any Flex users here that can confirm this behavior of not allowing "type-ahead" sending?

Re: complete call while already transmitting in CW

Chris Plumblee
 

It may have to do with the keying interface at each radio. WinKey and Serial/LPT port keying will allow "type-ahead" sending. Some other methods using radio control protocols don't allow it...the entire text of the message (including the callsign to be transmitted) is sent at once to the radio, where it is sent as-received.

I'm just theorizing...I have no particular inside knowledge. Type-ahead sending worked smoothly for > 4000 QSOs at the N4WW M/S this past weekend.

Re: Call History - CQ DX Contest,

VE9AA - Mike
 
Edited

Mark,
Mike , VE9AA here.
I think I know what you're asking (but it's not perfectly clear to me)
(you're wanting newbies calls added, right?)
Easiest way is to do nothing.  Ask them to OPERATE and they'll get in there.
Other way is to contact Stu and have him add them manually.  Some dxpeditions and special event callsign holders do this ahead of time.
(I've done it for a couple trips I did)

See if this helps:
"...
A New release of the Super Check Partial database files is available at:

http://www.supercheckpartial.com

Calls in the MASTER.DTA file: 37,330

If you would like to contribute your CABRILLO format logs for the SCP database,
please send them at any time.

The easiest thing to do is to bcc the following email address:
               
           logs@...

...when you submit your log to the sponsor’s robot after each contest. 

Please DO NOT send ADIF files, your LOGGER database file, 3830 postings... just
CABRILLO! :-)

You can send more than one log attachment in a single email BUT PLEASE DON’T
SEND THEM IN A ZIP file!

If you want to check the version of the SCP files you are using, look for a
call beginning with “VER2".  Every SCP file includes the version number in the
list of calls in the format VERYYYYMMDD.

The next release of the database will be at the beginning of November 2019. 
Any requested changes or deletions of callsigns received by NOON PDT on
November 1st, 2019 will be included in that release.

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SEND ADD/CHANGE MESSAGES WITHOUT ATTACHED LOGS OTHERWISE I
PROBABLY WON’T SEE YOUR REQUEST due to the email processing robot.

IMPORTANT: Before sending an add/change message, please check the LATEST
version of the SCP database to see whether your requested change (especially
add requests) is unnecessary because the call is already present.

Please let me know if you find any bad calls in the files.
Thanks again to all the contributors!

Re: Bandmap Window-- S&P, unassisted, single band, not networked-- "manual" spots auto clear or timeout?

M Gerber
 

Thank you Mike.

I believe I found the supporting documentation as you comment under the Telnet Window-Filter tab.

I guess when operating unassisted, I would not have thought a need to adjust the settings within the Telnet Window (there was no need to be connected to the cluster), though logically, the Bandmap is intimately associated with the Telnet/cluster feeds. This weekend was really about the first time I made a more significant unassisted effort and thought to use the Bandmap as a graphical tool.

Re: Highlight Colours

Derek Steele
 

Rich,

         I think you have it correct coming to think about it. First of all, that only occurred with U.S. Stations. Other DX was no problem. And I did update to the latest wl_cty.dat and  the following ( CQWWCW_2019_KE2D_V2.txt ) call history file from the N1MM logger website. In any case of course I wait until I copy the zone from the station I am working and then change if necessary.

Not having seen this new highlight feature before, it had me thinking I did something wrong. Every time I saw that green highlight, I would question myself as to whether I copied the correct exchange.

As far as the call history is concerned, and as far as I can recall, the program seemed to be getting information from more than one place for the prefill as evidenced by the fact that at times it would prefill with say   4  and then on other occasions with 04    or   5  and  05 . And secondly I operated 80 meters almost exclusively. (SOSB 80).

Thank you Rich for setting me straight. Will just have to get used to the new features. Now to get to the reading.

Derek,

There is a built-in prefill of CQ zones even if you are not using a Call History file. The zone is based on information in the country file (wl_cty.dat), which is accurate for most countries other than the US. For the US, it is guessed from the call area (the number in the call sign) unless there is an exception listed in the country file for that particular call sign.

The colours in the Log window are described at <https://n1mmwp.hamdocs.com/manual-windows/log-window/#warning-of-possible-errors>. The trigger for the green colour is a difference between what is in the log and the program's guess at the zone based on the country file. If you saw this for contacts where you did not change the zone, I can think of two potential explanations. One would be for a second QSO on another band where the prefill was taken from the previous QSO so you didn't need to overtype it, but the prefill and the program's guess would have been different. The other might be for QSOs with stations in a Call History file containing zone information, where again the prefill from the Call History file might have been different from the program's default guess.

The colours are only displayed during the contest. After the contest is over, the highlighting will disappear in order not to facilitate log washing after the contest.

During the contest over the weekend, the CQ-Zone column is usually

There were occasions when the received report zone was different from
the prefilled one, I changed it to the correct one and

upon hitting Enter, the zone number in the log window showed up green. I
suppose that is to show that it was

changed. But at times without changing the prefilled zone, upon pressing
enter, zone number in the log window

turned green. This happened on quite a few occasions. I can see it
turning green on a change but not when no change was made.

I started up N1MM this morning with the intention to take a screenshot
of it. No green marks on the zone entry in the log window.

Because of this perceived glitch, I hope it does not affect too many
folks with a missed MULT. I was not able to recreate the problem.

So before I say that there is a problem with N1MM , my question is, can
someone direct me to the part of the manual that would

explain how it is supposed to work as I must admit, I do not know right
now. Thanks to the Development Team for a great

piece of software.
