Does not transmit CW with Ic-7100

Jorge Gallardo
 

Good afternoon everyone, I have an icom ic-7100, which I have connected the program to.

in what refers to ssb, the program correctly makes the call that I have recorded, voice.

but when I put in CW, although it is configured to do CQ CQ in F1, the station is put in transmission, but does not give the tones.

it is as if you activate the ptt only but it does not release any tone.

 

I have reviewed all the settings, but I don't see where the problem may be.

 

Can somebody help me.

Thank you.

 

I put the configuration in case it was not correct

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks

Our club always imported the ADIF into N3FJP field day log program and generated the dupe sheet and summary from there.

Re: Field day dupe sheet

Did that once Joe.  It was enlightening.  I had inherited a Hallicrafters SX-28 from a local SK which I used to stabilize a counter during gravity outages [100 lbs of inertial mass].  I decided to do an NAQP CW "Old School", found the last 40 m ARC-5 in the basement with a Heath HP-23 power supply, cobbled it together with the Vibroplex, foot switch antenna relay, and began.

1.  The filter caps in the HP-23 apparently had dried up and it took some clip leads and junk box electrolytics to get the 120 Hz out of the signal'

2.  I forgot ... ARC-5's drift and this one had a somewhat comforting chirp.  OK, they all did.

3.  Also forgot ... ARC-5's are cathode keyed.  Grabbing the moving parts of the bug was unwise, but I'm a fast learner and only did it twice.

4.  I'm left-handed but have always sent right so I could write in my log legibly [logs were Sacred Scripture in those days].  These days, I have a paddle on each side.  Alas, my bug fist, right or left-handed left a lot to be desired.

5.  I don't remember that getting zero beat, staying there for the Q, calling him, copying his exchange, and sending mine required 4 hands, but apparently it must have.

6.  Packed it in after about 2 hrs, rate was around 5-6.  Didn't need a dupe sheet.

New experimental release 1.0.8449 (before next weekly update)

Andy (KU7T)
 

At Dayton 2014, N1MM Dev Team members met and decided to abandon Microsoft Access in favor of SQLite as the database platform for the next major release of N1MM – N1MM Plus. The N1MM+ SQLite database has served us well for six years, but it’s time to upgrade that original database engine to a newer version of SQLite. Among other advantages, this new version adds new optimization commands and promises improved performace - particularly for databases with large logs.
 
Next Tuesday we will release a weekly Latest Update that will install the new SQLite version and convert your existing database files. Our testing suggests that the upgrade is transparent and feels no different than any other weekly update. If you would like to install and test in advance of next Tuesday's update, we would welcome your feedback.
 
 
If you run into issues with this release, please respond to this message. We DISCOURAGE the installation of an older version on-top of this new version. Please do NOT rollback without contacting us.
 
Details from the revision history:
 
Version 1.0.8449 (June 7, 2020)
Support Ctl+C/Ctl+V for copy/paste in Entry window (VE1DT) (Coded by N1MM)
UDP Broadcast: added IsSplit tag to RadioInfo packet (Coded by K8UT)
Adds support for the Mortty/Fldigi nanoIO device for RTTY. This is the same capabilities of the TinyFSK device. (Coded by N2AMG)
Don't display "No telnet messages for N minutes" in Entry Window if auto reconnect is unchecked. (Coded by N1MM) 
Database updates (Coded by KU7T):
  Sqlite binaries updated for better performance.
  Database is now optimized on program launch.
  Lightweight database optimization every 60 minutes if ~25% new QSOs.
  New Database columns: 
     1) ID is a globally unique identifier for every QSO, that is not editable. 
     2) Claimed QSO. A column for a future X-QSO feature.
  Automatic Database upgrade of old databases during program start.
  Using an updated database with an older program version seems to work but is highly discouraged.
  Enforce the same program version of networked computers.
  
Thanks for testing,
The N1MM+ team.
 


Re: Telnet Cluster RTTY 75 baud

Tim Shoppa
 

Question is probably out of scope for the N1MM list ... but I will assume you are asking about 75 baud RTTY skimmers. I will say I’ve never been skimmed US or Europe when operating at 75 baud (for example in BARTG 75).

Now manual posts to clusters seem to work just fine for 75 baud RTTY just the same as 45 baud RTTY.

Re: SSB spots are very few but plenty of CW spots

Tim Shoppa
 

Jere, usually it's around April 1 that we get the yearly announcement of "SSB Skimmer" :-)

If you are hearing phone guys CQ'ing but no spots, please spot them! In N1MM you do this by typing their call in the entry box and hitting Alt-P.

In the big DX phone contests many big-hearted phone ops make lots of spots because we believe in increasing activity overall.

Re: SSB spots are very few but plenty of CW spots

Dave Sumner
 

Jere, as the screen that TV networks used to put up when they were having technical difficulty said, "Don't adjust your set." There's nothing wrong with it.

The vast majority of the huge number of CW spots come from the Reverse Beacon Network. There is no equivalent for SSB.

Re: ARRL VHF band switching problem

Chet, N8RA
 

Rich,

 

The band panel circles and switching has run circles around  me on VHF for some time, and I believe this is now being looked at more closely. FWIW, listed below are some observed sequences of events.

 

Chet, N8RA

 

 

ARRL VHF QSO party

SSB+CW+DIGITAL

mode control is set to “Use radio mode” and mode sent to radio for DIGI is set to “PSK”

bandmap mode border between CW and SSB is 50110

 

case 1:

K3 is on 50.313 in mode “Data”

start N1MM+

band panel has circle on 6m DIG, window title shows 50313.00 PSK etc.

 

click band panel CW 6m

radio goes to 50.160 CW REV

circle is on 6m CW

 

click PH 6M

circle momentarily jumps back and forth, lands on 6m PH

radio is put on 50125 USB

 

click on 6m DIG

radio goes to 50313 but mode is now USB

circle is on 6m DIG

 

click on 6m PH

radio goes back to 50125

but circle stays on 6m DIG

 

click on 6m DIG

radio now goes to 50000 (!!) mode USB

 

from this point circle never can be returned to 6m PH

 

 

case 2:

K3 on 50.160 CW

start N1MM+

band panel circle on 6m CW

 

click 6m PH,

K3 stays on 50.160, mode switches to USB

 

click 6m CW

K3 goes to 50160.44 mode CW

 

Able to click back and forth between 6m CW and 6m PH, circle will hesitate, bounce back and forth but stops on correct place

K3 frequency momentarily shows 50160.00 as circle toggles, but stops on 50160.44 for both CW and SSB now

 

click 6m DIG

radio goes to 50000 , circle appears on DIG as I click it, but goes back to CW

 

click on 6m PH

radio goes to 50160 USB and circle goes to 6m DIG

 

from this point on, clicking thru the modes, the radio freq is changed to “correct” value but when on PH freq, circle shows DIG circle

 

case 3:

similar to case 2, but after a few mode changes, radio can be clicked to CW and circle is on CW, but clicking 6M DIG puts circle momentarily on it but it lands back on 6m CW and radio mode stays CW

 

 

 

(other observation: after typing into my word processor, and wanting to return focus to N1MM+, a click on the entry window sometimes brings the bandmap window into focus on top of the entry window. It takes a 2nd click on the entry window to bring focus to it.)

Hi Craig,

Thanks for checking ahead of time! I just tried this on my laptop (no radio interfaced) and I see exactly the same symptoms. It will cycle through 6m, 2m, 1.25m and 70cm (without the circle marking on 70 cm) or through 23cm, 33cm and 70cm (again without the marking on 70 cm), but it doesn't want to jump between the two groups, except that Ctrl+PgUp will go from 23cm to 6m, after which it stays in the lower group, and Ctrl+PgDn will go from 6m to 23cm, after which it stays in the higher group. Adding 13cm to the band panel display doesn't change the fundamental behaviour, it just adds one more band to the higher group.

Rich VE3KI

I am having a problem and wonder if I am unique and just need to figure out what is wrong.

I have VHF set up for 6 to 23 cm and show that on the Entry window. I was able at one time to change bands by using the CTRL Page Up and Down keys. Now I can't do that. I am able to go from 6 to 222 and then it stops and goes in a loop. I can click on 23 cm and then I am able to go down to 70cm and then it loops. I can never get 432 to have a circle around it either. I can manually enter the freq and it changes the radio properly. I can also go to low bands and it works perfectly.

Can someone check to see if this works on their setup? 

I know I am way too early checking out my radio and need to wait until next Friday or Saturday.... :-)
