Re: Having problem getting K3 and N1MM to communicate

Rob,

Are you able to communicate with the radio using the K3 Utility? 
If so, make  sure the PTT settings in the radio (Config: PTT-Key) match those in N1MM. In addition, are sure you have the correct Baud rate set in both the radio and N1MM.

Re: Set TRX Filter Codes fo FTDX101

Igor ananyev
 

 

Hi John!

I just want to click Wide and get 600hz FILTER, click Narrow and get 300hz Filter.

Pay attention, please, as I have understood, SH commands are not for change the TRX filters,

but  for regulating DSP WIDTH.

 

73! Igor

 

Igor,

 

You seem to miss the point that a standard radio with no options has one CW roofing filter.

 

If the radio remembers the roofing filter by mode why would our default filter commands need to include a command for that single CW roofing filter?

Igor,

 

The 1.2k and 300Hz roofing filters are options so they can not be selected with the default commands.

 

Users can change the filter setting strings by right clicking in the Bandmap for that radio and entering the CAT command.

 

Does the radio remember the roofing filter selection by mode? I expected it would.

If not, I will need to add a selection for 600 Hz or 3kHz roofing filter.

 

John, K3CT

 

John,

yes, the Radio does remember the filter by mode.

I just want to tell that the commands SH**** does not fit for changing Roofing filters, it is for DSP WIDTH.

To change Roofing you should to use RF** command

Re: Split and VFO Aand B switching

John Bednar
 

Alex,

 

You can find all documentation on the N1MM Logger+ website. There are two forms pdf download or on line viewing (Docs menu). The keyboard commands are under Docs, Setup menu.

 

The radio has one transmitter. When TX focus is on VFOB, the radio needs to be in split. The TX/RX focus indicators are in the Entry windows. The FTDX5000 radio control may have some issues. I haven’t had access to a radio or enough time to spend with a user to remotely debug. After you become familiar with the software, window names, and TX/RX focus we can clean up the radio control if an issues remain.

Thank you for the reply. I am using Yaesu FTDX5000. Sorry was not aware that commands are not universal.

The pause button does switch between VFOs but when I click on the Bandmap A, it changes the frequency in VFOB and when I click on the same call in Bandmap B it splits and allows to listen on VFO B too.

I am new to N1MM and I spent hours and hours trying to learn the program. Where can I read about all the commands?

You didn’t mention the radio model. Select SO2V mode, use the PAUSE key to switch the TX & RX focus between VFOs. You can click in either Bandmap and the TX/RX focus will change. The software will set split / Dual Watch as needed. There are other keyboard commands and options in the Available window for SO2V. The operation is somewhat radio dependent.

Re: N1MM+ with Omnirig Virtual Comm Port software?

Hi David

Please forgive my confusion. I was referring to OmniRig v2.0, sponsored by HB9RYX and described here:

You are referring to OmniRig v1.9, sponsored by Alex VE3NEA, and listed here:

I am unaware that you can use OmniRig's Virtual Serial Port capability without the baggage of its rig control - which is where OmniRig and N1MM conflict. I've written you and Alex private email to try and resolve my confusion.

Hi Larry - I've checked directly with Omnirig's developer and he told me:-

"OmniRig is not 18 months old, here is what the download page says:

OmniRig     0.5 Mb     Updated 2019-04-07
INI files for OmniRig     0.1 Mb     Updated 2019-11-13

I wish I knew why the N1MM people do not want to make their logger OmniRig-compatible. After all, they integrated it with my
Gritty program, and even partially with CW Skimmer."

I can also say that his downloads include ini files for some of the latest rigs on the market today.

So I hope that with this reassurance you may be able to look again at incorporating Omnirig into your excellent logger - probably the best on the market today.

Re: Spectrum scope

Alexander Kopp MD
 

Rich,
Thank you for the reply. I understand about not checking the spots. What are those spots and why are they showing up. Is there another software like CW Skimmer that triggers those spots.
I am using Yaesu 5000. In the spectrum of the  Win4YaesuSuite there are none of those spots. As I understand it the information from Win4yaesu is being transferred to N1MM spectrum. So where are the spots being detected and why are they sent to N1MM spectrum. Is there a way to block them permanently? There is a tab when you right click on the Bandmap to delete them but they come right back in hundreds.
Thank you, Alex AK1MD

If you don't want those spots, don't check "Self Spot Signals Above Threshold" in the Spectrum Display window. If you want some of them but there are too many of them, raise the noise threshold with the mouse wheel in the spectrum display to reduce the number of signals that exceed the threshold. If you want them to disappear more quickly, reduce the spot timeout in the Bandmap window (this will affect all spots, not just the self spots from the Spectrum Display).

Sorry, I don’t have the link handy, but if you search in the Docs for N1MM you will find the instructions.  

Clean up all the ghosted ones, then you have a better chance of making 100% that your radio is connected to the right com port number.  Also, make sure the baud rate you use is the same on the radio and N1MM.  9600 is plenty high enough to provide stable communications between the computer and the radio.

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

http://www.supercheckpartial.com

Calls in the MASTER.DTA file: 36,185

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 January 2020. Any requested changes or deletions of callsigns received by NOON PST on January 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.

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.
