Re: N1MM on Raspberry PI/Linux - can it be done

Edited

N1MM can run on linux and wine with some inconvenience and limitations. Just google "n1mm on linux" or 'n1mm wine'.

Some ham ops using TR4W under linux and wine,others has a success with SuperDuper by EI5DI also under wine.

Sometimes I am using tlf - native for linux and DOS-like contest software.

Check TRLog for linux.

Next one is yfktest.

But remember - IMHO no one mentioned above is serious competitor for n1mm :)

My question is; has anyone created contest logging software which comes close to N1MM but will run on Linux?
It does not have to have all the wonderful extra bits that come with N1MM. Just the ability to log contest contacts, show dupes export cabrillo and possibly link to my rig to show band/frequency.

One day I hope to get back to a Windows PC but for now I must watch the pennies. Suggestions would be appreciated

Yes. It can be done. It's just a SMOP (Small Matter of Programming).

There are many programs for linux platforms that should work on a Raspberry Pi. If you google "linux ham radio logging programs" you get over a million hits.

This groups.io reflector, dedicated to N1MM+ users, is not the best place to look for answers. But you might want to join the RaspberryPi-4-HamRadio@groups.io reflector.

Re: 070 contests

Open the list of supported contests at <https://n1mmwp.hamdocs.com/manual-supported/contests-list/>.

In your browser, type Ctrl+F to open the browser's search window and type in 070. You should get 10 hits. The first two are for other contests with an 0700Z starting time. The other 8 will lead you to UDC contest types for several 070 contests. Since they are all UDC contests, you can find more information about them by going to <https://n1mmwp.hamdocs.com/manual-supported/contests-setup/setup-udc-contests/> and using your browser's Ctrl+F search function to find all of the 070 contests (most of them are together on the page with names starting with PODXS, but there is one that is just slightly farther down the page at PSK 31 Flavors).

When you have chosen the one(s) you want to operate, follow the installation instructions near the top of the second web page I mentioned above to download the udc files you need.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE 2020 GEORGIA QSO PARTY

Jeff Clarke
 

The Georgia QSO Party is scheduled to occur the weekend of April 11th, 2020. Please help me communicate this information about the 2020 QSO Party.

The state of Georgia has implemented a stay at home order thru at least April 13th due to the large number of COVID-19 virus cases in Georgia. This order is effective starting Friday April 3rd, 2020. Based on the travel restrictions in Georgia and the importance of rover operations in the GQP the decision has been made by the GQP leadership to shorten the 2020 QSO Party to a one day event. It will be held on Saturday April 11th, 2020 from 1600-0400z, Due to travel restrictions within Georgia mobile operations will not be allowed. Multi-Op operations will only be allowed if remote operation technology is used that will allow social distancing or if the operation takes place from a shared family station.

Re: SWL

Thieu Mandos
 

I've a long list with contests that have an SWL section. Many of them require/prefer a Cabrillo log that can not (yet) be created in N1MM+ unless you use a UDC. Up to now did not found any contest suppling info how to log as an SWL. When there is a hand full of SWL interested in such a UDC its worth spending the effort to create one, so new ham's can feel the thrill of contesting.
Keep sending SWL-logs to contest organisations, so the maintain the SWL-section.
The major problem is the logging of the 2nd call/station worked. When a UDC is needed the problem becomes to "reconstruct" the multiplier and score calculation. A standard feature in N1MM+ to make the selection of SWL class possible and then open an additional "comment" field in entry window and Cabrillo would be a great improvement.

Hope you hear me, 73'Thieu SWL-NL199 / PA0M

Re: CWT Tip of the Day

Max NG7M
 

Hi Ed, I run the NC7J AR6 DX Cluster... I created a video as a primer to set up filters to enable skimmer spots and limit them based on your preferences.  This was back in 2016 but it still applies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=084V6_PNwMQ

This would work as expected for any AR6 cluster node... and you could do the same on other node types, but would need to use their filtering commands.  Node that have world wide skimmer spots available that is.  You could enable skimmers spots originating in the US for example and turn on the new feature in N1MM to limit the spots to only the callsigns in the call history file and you would get a very clean list of spots to pounce around on in a CWT.

I hope the video is useful in connecting some of the dots on how to get skimmer spots and human spots at the same time... and most of all limit spots to originating from areas close to you based on your station make up.

New Super Check Partial files available VER20200402 (02 APR 2020)

Stu K6TU
 

A New release of the Super Check Partial database files is available at:

http://www.supercheckpartial.com

Calls in the MASTER.DTA file: 35,409

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 May 2020. Any requested changes or deletions of callsigns received by NOON PDT on May 1st, 2020 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.

PLEASE SEND REQUESTS FOR ADD/CHANGE to logs@... - please help me help you - this way, requests don't get lost in my personal email.

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!

(Feature request) Edit data time into Log for some qso (before selected)

valerio spagnolo
 

Hi guys,
Is it possibile to add in the log window the function of change data time for multiple qso pre-selected (for example +1 hour) ??

I know there is the "change Timestamps of entire log by a fixed amount" , but with this function change time for "all qso" inside the log.
I'd like you can make a selection to decide "all qso" (already active) or your "selected qso" (feature request)...

Tnx, best 73' de IU3BTY

Dear SWL's 

Ive made a UDC for the SPDX contest to make it easy for SWL and enjoy all nice features of N1MMlogger.
It makes an extra entry field avalable for 2nd call/station worked, checks the exchange, offers a master file to suggest the stions heard,
and offers exchange suggestion from a history file (copied from the SPDX contest)
All is in a zip file, probably I'm too late to put it in the N1MM document download or files section here,
so mail me for a copy at NL199@... 
I hope this way to get a few beginning Hams active in contesting, advice: try it before the contest starts :)

Re: CWT Tip of the Day

If you are connecting to a DX Cluster node that does not carry CW Skimmer spots (originating from the RBN), you probably won't see a lot of CW spots. If you turn skimmer spots on, your bandmap will be full during a CWT, regardless of whether you use the CH filter or not.

So if no one answers their CQs but they don't know why, they won't be discouraged?

No.  The call history file is updated *very* frequently. Newbies don't
CQ much, and they would not see that they were missing from others'
bandmaps.

It helps them more than anyone, if they use it. It takes them longer to
determine a CQing station is not in the CWT.

Seems like a fine way to discourage new participants.

GM Tom and many thanks for this update.  The really nice part of the
new feature is that all of the many permutations of the proper call
from the CH file are no longer in the band map - wonderful.

Tnx & 73

You can limit callsigns in the bandmap/spectrum/available windows to
only those that are in call history.

Since in CWT virtually everyone who operates it is in CH, this will
limit the displays to those who are likely operating in the event.
Those who try the option, like it. Because this can be a very
confusing option if you don't know it is turned on, it is NOT saved
on exit. You will need to check it each time you want to use it.

See the attached screen shot for where in the Telnet window to enable
this behavior.
