PAQP errors

Thomas Williams
 

The Score window shows 930 QSOs, yet the last QSO I made was serial number 928.

Also, the Statistics window shows 2 LSB QSOs with UA. I only worked one CW DX (a SM). No problem - you only get one DX multiplier so the UA doesn't figure into the total score.

Since the PAQP requires mobiles to submit a separate summary sheet for each county, the two QSO error means I have to count my QSOs per county in the log manually :(

Skin, colors and fonts file

Jorge Diez - CX6VM
 

Hello

 

is possible to save a configuration file with all skin, colors, fonts, windows size, etc, etc, so I can import this file in another computer?

 

I am spending a lot of time with the settings and I hope I just import a file in the other computers with N1MM+

 

Thanks,

Jorge

N1MM-Clublog Gateway

Rich Seifert
 

Is anyone successfully using N2AMG’s N1MM-to-Clublog Gateway application with N1MM+?

I have tried both his version 1.0 and his latest version 2.0. They both work properly with N1MM Classic, but I have had no success getting it to upload from Logger+. Has something changed such that this application can’t work anymore?

(Yes, I tried contacting Rick N2AMG directly and his suggestion was to download the latest version.)

I find this application very useful on DXpeditions to let people know virtually immediately if they are “in the log”.

Would using something like Tight VNC across the network help ?

Re: Change Operator Remotely

N1MM <tfwagner@...>
 

Good idea, except that there are several things that must change when the operator changes - fonts, colors, layout and function keys. It would be more disruptive to change all those from another machine than to interrupt the operator.

This is better served by three steps:

1. Have each operator customize the screen layout, colors & fonts so that it is jarring for them to see the old operator's setup. That will serve as a notice to change operator.

2. Make it a policy of the station that the operator being relieved does Ctl-O and sets the new ops callsign, or at least leaves the dialog box open for the new op to do it.

3. Make up a post-it note that says: "Change Op!" and put it on their monitor if you notice they have not changed the operator.

Re: Keying LPT Pins with Function Key Macros?

Alan Dewey
 

Thanks N2IC, K3CT, and K8UT for responses.  It looks like using LPT is a viable option for me.  I have a fairly recent DEL computer with Windows 7.  Although I know that LPT is not used much any more, I did purchase an LPT card for it because I am using the Top Ten DX Doubler which I really like.

Although my preference is that ICOM would add this to the CI-V commands, I think I can live with the LPT solution.

The problem was I hadn't updated the firmware in the 7600.  Once I did that, everything was OK.

Re: Another annoying networking problem

Thanks, that cured it.
For the benefit of others.
If you are in a field away from the internet and just use a hub to connect your computers, there will be no DHCP server and Windows will use the "Alternate Configuration" settings to assign an IP address to the adapter. These default to handing out 169. addresses. Whilst this is normally OK, Windows will treat these networks as Public and run them through the firewall. Rather than punch holes through the firewall or disable it, the network has to be changed to be a Home network.

What I did was as follows:

1. I assigned static addresses in the "Alternate Configuration" tab of the adapter settings. I did it this way so that the adapter could still pick up a DHCP address when it was plugged into a full network. Tip: make sure you fill in the gateway field (I chose Multi to be the gateway)
2. Follow the Fix it Yourself guide in Windows 7 Network connections are stuck in Public mode

 

 to change the network type to Home.

Subject: [N1MMLoggerplus] Another annoying networking problem

 

 

I'm a total newbie to N1MM+ so please bear with me.

I've been asked to setup two laptops for use on CQWW SSB next weekend. They are identical Dell latitudes running 32-bit Windows 7 SP1 with updates. I've installed N1MM+ V1.05241.0 on both. They are named RUN and MULTI for ease of identification.

Both are connected to a simple wired Ethernet hub and are not connected to WiFi (they were for software installation but then the adapter was disabled). 

The only difference between them is that MULTI has a Vodafone 3G dongle installed for cluster access when we are in a field. The dongle is not plugged in and the adapter does not appear in the Adapters list in Network and Sharing Center.

Now the problem.

When I run N1MM+ (as Administrator on RUN), set both up for CQWWSSB and their respective roles and then enabled networking with MULTI set as Master I see the following.

On MULTI

MULTI IP address shown as ?, S&P Freq 14227.00, Op M5KVK, Send OK, Receive OK

RUN (in red) IP Address 169.253.176.207, S&P, Freq 0, Op Blank, Send OK, Receive FAIL

 

On RUN

MULTI (in red) IP Address 169.254.181.198, S&P, Frq 14227.00, Op M5KVK, Send Fail, Recv OK

RUN IP Address ?, Run, Freq 21204.00, Op G3ADC, Send OK, Recv OK

 

When I log a dummy QSL on MULTI, it appears in RUNS log, but not vice-versa.

 

When I plug in the dongle, Telnet works with RUN mirroring what MULTI is seeing. 

 

So, it looks like MULTI can send to RUN and RUN and can receive from MULTI. RUN cannot send to MULTI and MULTI cannot receive from RUN. IP addresses ar e OK, same network, same version, same contest.

 

Any ideas?

Re: RE-SIZING TYPE LOG PAGE FONT SIZE

ve3ki@...
 

Which font size, i.e. in which window(s)? If you didn't open the Manage Skins, Colors and Fonts window and change font sizes that way, which could hardly be considered inadvertent, you may have changed the font sizes using the little font sizer buttons near the top right corner of whichever window(s) is/are giving you trouble. Try clicking on the up arrow font sizer button in the affected window(s) to see what that does for you. If the window you are having trouble with is the Entry window, there are no font sizer buttons in that window. One possibility is a font size setting in the Manage Skins, Colors and Fonts window (available from the Config menu). Another possibility is that you may have made a change in the Windows display settings. That would affect all applications, not just N1MM+.

If you want to get real clever, you could introduce a benign {CATHEX}

using an Arduino, Beagle Bones, or Raspberry Pi ”sniffer” on the bus.
The GPIO pins from the sniffer would connect to the mic input and

I am looking for a way I can (from N1MM+) kick off Voice Keyer messages
that I have recorded on my ICOM 7600 using the Voice Keyer Record / Play
feature built into the radio. I know this is not possible with CI-V
commands (Unlike the Yaesu FT2000 which DOES have CAT commands for this
which you can kick off with a Function Key Macro)

The ICOM radio DOES have the capability to kick off these messages with
an external box with four buttons that you plug into the Microphone jack
of the radio. I was thinking that, if I could parallel these buttons
with a signal from four pins on an LPT port, I would be able to kick off
these messages from the N1MM+ Function Key Macros.

Is there a way to toggle an LPT pin via a command contained in a
Function Key macro in N1MM+.

Re: WAV file resolution

Pete Smith N4ZR <n4zr@...>
 

The MYDOCUMENTS vs DOCUMENTS confusion afflicts many of us, including me.  However, I think it is a bit misleading to suggest that you need to "create" a DOCUMENTS" folder.  If you install N1MM Logger+ in the default locations suggested by the installer, the user files will all go in the proper folder.  In Windows 7, at least, clicking on Documents in the Start button menu takes you to that folder first.  By sorting the contents of the folder by date last modified, I ensure that N1MMLogger+ will be the first sub-folder on the list.

Your user program directory is:

Your F1 function key path is differe nt:

C:\Users\user-91479\My Documents\N1MM Logger+

 

The wav files MUST be in the provided User program directory \Wav or:

The files can be in a sub directory.

 

Eliminate the potential for error and follow the example that we provided in the initial function keys.

Re: Problems with Bandmaster 3 and N1MM Plus

Alan Dewey
 

All;

I thought I would close out this thread as I have found a simple solution.

As K3CT and others have pointed out, the problem (i.e. random band changes by the Bandmaster 3) was being caused by collisions between messages going back and forth between the computer, the Bandmaster 3, and the ICOM 7600.  The problem was worse when I was tuning the radio.

Even when I faked out the radio to think it was an ICOM PRO 3, I still had the problem.

The ultimate solution was simple and something that I should have thought of earlier.  I simply turned off "CI-V Transceive" in the ICOM 7600.  Once I did this, all worked fine.

Thanks to K3CT and K7MI for the time they spent with me resolving this issue.

Al, K0AD
