A contest usually wants more than one thing exchanged over the air, like RST and State. Yes it would have to be parsed from different fields to create the Cabrillo file to send. The ADIF is different. The data entered in the exchange field is what is entered in that field not what is entered in the signal report field. The exchange is entered in the ADIF as APP_N1MM_EXCHANGE1. I would think that it could satisfy everybody to just change the field name to SRX_STRING. Seems simple to me. To export the contest name would require more coding. Some don't think keeping this info is important and there is something wrong with those of us who do. What is the problem with at least changing the field name on export from APP_N1MM_EXCHANGE1 to SRX_STRING? New code is written with every update why not this?

Re: N1MM+ Distributed Multi Op LAN+WAN

Larry K8UT
 

Considering N1MM+'s recent VPN improvements - and the COVID-19 lockdowns - we wrote to the ARRL Contest Committee folks suggesting that they adapt to the current situation by including a "distributed multi-op" category for Field Day 2020.

The response:
"The ARRL Board’s Programs & Services Committee has upheld the current Field Day posture of no changes for 2020. Recognizing that Field Day is not a contest, but instead is an operating exercise, the theme of adapting is apropos."

As other contests have begun allowing distributed multi-op, we have heard from clubs that intend to operate Field Day in a similar distributed multi-op architecture. We advise any club that participates using an unsanctioned category to clearly identify their rules violation to the ARRL and in any log submission.

Dear Central Division Member -

        There have been many suggestions forchanges to the rules for
Field Day-2020 on account of the present social distancing requirements.
Below is today's message from the ARRL  HQ's Contest Manager,  Paul
Bourque,  N1SFE that explains a change to the listing of club names for
Field Day  participants . ALL participants will have that participant's

This year, ARRL Field Day promises to be a unique iteration of this
annual event, with many individuals and groups coming up with new and
interesting ways to adjust their approach. As an event, Field Day is
structured to be versatile and can be adapted for any situation.

Many groups have asked how they can adjust their Field Day planning to
address social-distancing guidelines that may be in effect in many areas
of the country, as gathering at their traditional Field Day site may not
be feasible or safe. Instead of participating in a group event this
year, consider operating as a Class B, C, D, or E station, utilizing
your own call sign.

ARRL will include club names for all participating stations in the
published results, so the efforts of your club’s members can be
acknowledged. While we will not publish an aggregate club score, seeing
the name of your club associated with various individual member’s
results is certainly a way to highlight your club’s activity.

Myriad opportunities are possible in this year’s Field Day setting.
These are just a couple.

    Consider having an intra-club competition among members, seeing who
can make the most contacts during the event. You can award prizes or
distribute certificates at a club meeting. This can be a fun way to
bolster the activities of individual club members, even though they
cannot all gather together at the same location this year.
    Set up a Field Day Challenge with rival clubs in neighboring
communities. See how many members of each club get on the air from their
own stations and participate in the event. In addition to “bragging
rights,” perhaps certificates to the top-scoring individual entries in
each category can be presented as part of this inter-club camaraderie.

One club is planning to conduct its Field Day as a 4A club group, with
participants spaced to comply with social distancing guidelines within
the required 1,000-foot diameter circle and operating individual
stations. This club also plans to set up a “Get on the Air” (GOTA)
station. The club’s plan is to have the GOTA coach at the Field Day
site, while GOTA operators participate via remote link.

Another club is planning to set up a remote-controlled station at its
usual Field Day site, with club members taking turns controlling the
station from their homes. The club is developing a schedule that
outlines when each member of the club will be at the helm via the remote
link.

Whatever approach you take to this year’s Field Day, keep up to date
with the current guidelines issued by local and state health agencies
that may impact your proposed operation.

ARRL invites your stories about the interesting and creative ways
you’re planning to use to adapt your Field Day operation. Share these
on the ARRL Field Day Facebook page.

And when results come out the name of your club is next to your score, BUT there are NO a combined club scores!

And think if the Majority of the typical FD stations do not happen, ya know the class "A" etc. out in a field someplace. and everyone is at home if they bother to do it at all anyway, they will be 90% chance a class "D" and since class "D" cant work class "D" stations, who are all these people gonna contact?  It's gonna be one really slow contest.  opps it's not a contest.

I have done every Field Day since 1976, but this one I may sit out. OR Hey since it's not a contest anyway,  Maybe I'll convince my usual FD group to do FD anyway but in this distributed mode anyway with the club call, and call use class "E"  or what the heck "A" even, it's not a contest anyway, and this would give us practice on using the remote group contesting type of operation.

Sorry for Venting.  But man, from all the E-Mail groups conversations, even on the official ARRL contesting one it looked like a 99% chance it was gonna be this way like a new class like class "V" and "X" for the remote versions of class "D" & "E" except no restrictions on who can work who.

I don't think I am the only one that was getting this feeling.  I guessing even the logging developers MOST of them must have also thought so otherwise why the rush to suddenly make the loggers capable of doing this?

Sorry for venting guys, But disgusted with the ARRL's idea of the alternative they came up with.

I’ve never been in a state QSO Party before, so this is the first time I’ve set one up.  I followed the procedures at:

 

https://n1mmwp.hamdocs.com/manual-supported/contests-setup/setup-qsop-contests/?hilite=%27state%27%2C%27qso%27%2C%27party%27

 

In entering a test QSO, I get an error message:

 

Invalid contest selection.  Logging is disabled.  Select QSO Party: IN7QPNE or correct your ARRL section.

 

I have IL selected as my exchange and only want to set up for 7QP, not the combined IN7QPNE.  I imported the multiplier file, and all 259 counties are there.

 

 

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks very much.

Yes, just do a global change  on the string APP_N1MM_EXGANGE1 to what you need.  

NOTE: Importing an ADIF log into N1MM requires the field  <APP_N1MM_EXCHANGE1> to  be present for certain contests.

Notepad does the job nicely. Do it all the time.

OR Hey since it's not a contest anyway,  Maybe I'll convince my usual FD group to do FD anyway but in this distributed mode anyway with the club call, and call use class "E"  or what the heck "A" even, it's not a contest anyway, and this would give us practice on using the remote group contesting type of operation.

Sorry for Venting.  But man, from all the E-Mail groups conversations, even on the official ARRL contesting one it looked like a 99% chance it was gonna be this way like a new class like class "V" and "X" for the remote versions of class "D" & "E" except no restrictions on who can work who.

I don't think I am the only one that was getting this feeling.  I guessing even the logging developers MOST of them must have also thought so otherwise why the rush to suddenly make the loggers capable of doing this?

Sorry for venting guys, But disgusted with the ARRL's idea of the alternative they came up with.

Tom,

 

Be sure that you followed the distributed multi-op band/mode rules at the bottom of this page:

The ARRL has not changed the rules for Field Day.

Running the FQP on the VPN, mostly working with 9 members. Everyone updated to 1.0.8332 before the start but most had already manually populated stations in Network Status. After FQP we'll unpopulate the in Network Status stations and give the auto populate a chance to fill in.

All in all, it is exciting to use the logger in this manner and all stations can see who is doing what.

Scores will skyrocket!!

Is Field Day next??!!

What about logging programmes that do NOT use the SRX_STRING ???

Why change this APP_N1MM_EXCHANGE1 just for one specific logging software ??

My general logging soft HAMOFFICE offers me and allows me to map the APP_N1MM fields to any field available in it.

Time to close this thread.

Betreff: Re: [N1MM+] N1MM Logger+ EXPORT ADIF <STX> - <STX_STRING> MISSING #n1mm

 

A contest usually wants more than one thing exchanged over the air, like RST and State. Yes it would have to be parsed from different fields to create the Cabrillo file to send. The ADIF is different. The data entered in the exchange field is what is entered in that field not what is entered in the signal report field. The exchange is entered in the ADIF as APP_ N1MM_EXCHANGE1. I would think that it could satisfy everybody to just change the field name to SRX_STRING. Seems simple to me. To export the contest name would require more coding. Some don't think keeping this info is important and there is something wrong with those of us who do. What is the problem with at least changing the field name on export from APP_N1MM_EXCHANGE1 to SRX_STRING? New code is written with every update why not this?

Found and downloaded the Hamvention QSO Party UDC file.  Saved it in the N1MM+ UDC folder.  It saved as 'txt'; no '.UDC' suffix seen.  When I open the 'New File' menu and search the listing of contest, the Hamvention QSO Party is not found.  Any assistance would be appreciated.  I've downloaded UDC files before without any problems.

Chat Window -- How can I see my own messages?

Curt L
 

Hello from K7ZOO !

Four of us are networking this weekend for the 7QP contest.  We tried using the "Chat" window last night, and discovered we 

     a) we are able to see the other stations' messages

                                      BUT

     b) we are NOT ABLE to see our own messages!

It's really unattractive to not see our own messages.  Is there some switch or option in N1MM that we can select to make our own messages visible?

Thank you for any advice you might provide,

Curt / K7ZOO

Re: Merging separate databases into one

Yes, I think so. Did you create a symlink to re-route your My Documents folder to the D drive? I have heard it's possible to undo that but I do not know how. Maybe google can assist you.

One problem I'm having is, I have an SSD drive (C:/)...and a 
regular HD drive (D:/)... N1MM keeps looking for the database
file on drive D:...I'm sure because I had setup windows to store all
user files on that disk..I've since migrated them back to C:...but don't know how to get
N1MM to look at drive C:/ instead... Is that possible?

VPN Teleconference - Wednesday April 29th

Tom Wagner (N1MM)
 

The Tuesday, April 28^th N1MM+ Update will contain improvements to the logging program’s wide area networking capabilities. This version includes improved support for the Hamachi VPN, as well as support for the SoftEther VPN protocol.

For those of you who have decided to circumvent coronavirus lockdowns by operating distributed multi-op stations, the N1MM Developers are hosting another Zoom teleconference focused on Hamachi virtual private networks. *This is not a demonstration, but a practical exercise* where attendees will install, configure and connect their N1MM+ stations to a hosted VPN. The teleconference will be conducted on Wednesday, April 29^th at 3pm EDST (19:00 utc).

You must register for the free event by responding to an email "survey" that I will send out shortly. The Hamachi VPN is limited to 32 attendees, and invitations will be sent to attendees on a first-come first-served basis. You will need an internet connected Windows PC with N1MM installed, and at least a microphone. Webcams are optional but recommended

In preparation, attendees should download and print the draft documentation "N1MM Networking using Hamachi to create a Virtual Private Network <https://n1mmwp.hamdocs.com/mmfiles/draft-distributed-multi-op-contesting-using-n1mm-with-a-hamachi-vpn_v0-10-pdf/>, which we will follow for the exercise. Additional details for attendees will be included in the invitation to be sent Wednesday two hours prior to the teleconference.
