Hi John,

I also use my IC-7610 in the same way.  I have no issues with CTRL-Down Arrow or CTRL-Up Arrow.  Could it be your keyboard?  Does it work ok if you use the other CTRL button.

Actually I used to use N1MM Logger+ your way, but I change to using 2 Spectrum Displays (one for each VFO) set up vertically like Bandmaps (with th IC-7610 no additional hardware or software is needed). This works just like band maps but I can see who is active. Besides the CTRL-Up-Down Arrow, I also use Shift-Up-Down to go to active signals.

I expect that you have our software set to use the filter selection that is being set. It is set at the top of the Bandmap.

Re: Unable to reconfigure radio nr.2 as radio nr.1

John Bednar
 

Ira,

 

The baud rate window for each radio contains a radio Nr box. Make sure you have those set correctly.

If your WinKey has a Radio1 and Radio2 CW cables, make sure that the correct cable is plugged into radio 1.

During the BARTG RTTY contest, I had a strange event that I have never seen before.

 

My first QSO I sent SN 1 and logged SN 1.

 

My second QSO sent SN 2 and logged SN 2

 

My Third QSO sent SN 3 and Logged SN 2

 

My fourth QSO sent SN 3 and Logged SN 3

 

All following QSOs were correct.

 

I was working SO2R. I will email the adjudicator so the guy I worked does not have a QSO with busted SN.

Unless someone has a better suggestion....
 
Close Logger.
Browse to your User area Documents\N1MM Logger+
find the third oldest n1mm logger.ini.day.bak
look at the date it was created to ensure it was made
while your ft9k was OK, and rename it by removing
the day.  You now have a good backup ini file for when
the ft9k is returned to working condition.
 
Rename n1mm logger.ini to n1mm loggerOLD.ini
Start logger and re-configure.

Re: General (net) logging

Den,

1. Don't believe everything that you see on the Internet ;-)

2. The "DX" contest that hams are using for general purpose logging is not a UDC, it's a standard contest.

3. Despite DX's popularity as a general purpose logging app, we still recommend using a real GP logger that does stuff like: real-time QRZ, ClubLog and LoTW interfacing, awards tracking (DXCC, IOTA, WAZ), QSL management...

Howard,

 

I changed my ARRL Section to VA, opened a VA QSO party, configured for NNX county, logged several dummy stations, and exported the Cabrillo without an error. I am using the latest version of the software.

 

What do you have in the contest setup dialog “Sent Exchange” box?

What is the error message?

 

There was a recent change to prevent users from submitting Cabrillo files with the wrong sent exchange. Maybe it is saving you from generating a bad file.

Re: WAN Networking- Slaved N1MM's not seeing QSOs from other slaves

Tom Wagner (N1MM)
 

First, some terminology. N1MM+ networking is peer-to-peer.  There is no master/slave relationship.  Master in the Network Status window refers to which station in the network provides Telnet spots and the time standard.  Only in those capabilities is it a "master".

What you show is a 3 computer network.  The local machine, DESKTOP-DF17TU6 has been designated as the Telnet/Time master.  If it is the only one that can communicate with the other two computers, then they are not connecting to each other. We cannot see that from your local Network Status window alone.  We would need to see all three.

Each computer would need four entries in the Network Status Edit Computer Addresses dialog to name themselves and the other three computers in the network.

If you have the other computer owners bring up their Network Status windows, I expect you will see errors in the Send/Receive columns for some of them. You are correct that with 4 computers at 4 different locations, you will not need to use any addresses other than 12070 in the Edit Computer Addresses dialog and your routers can be set to deliver 12070 to whichever computer is running N1MM+ as 12070.

See:
https://n1mmwp.hamdocs.com/manual-windows/network-status-window/#the-options-tab and scroll down to the network diagram for an illustration of a 4 computer network.

Summarizing, the fact that in your case the "Master" seems to be working differently than the others is not because it is the Master.  There is something else wrong.

Tom - N1MM

The talk function ends up working the same way with respect to direction of communication.  What settings do I have wrong?  I have enabled port forwarding on all the routers for TCP port 12070 for all the computers involved.  There is only one computer running N1MM at each site (so this isn't a situation of routing ports other than 12070 external to internal). The Windows 10 firewall rules have also been adjusted to allow inbound communication on port 12070.  I have included the traced networking computer messages log as an attachment.  (and yes I renamed my computer name to "WU2X-SHACK-DESK" (15 chars), though that isn't the master now).

Re: Using GRITTY as a Second Decoder Causes N1MM to Terminate after a few Hours

John N2HMM
 

Max, Rick, et al,

 

I have run into the same problem but it's not N1MM itself shutting down, it's Windows (in my case W7) forcing N1MM to shut down.  I believe GRITTY is causing the problem with Windows.  N1MM is very stable as long as GRITTY isn't running.  

 

GRITTY always beeps, I had to mute the speakers because it was driving me nuts.  I spoke to the SW programmer of GRITTY and he said it beeps when GRITTY is in diagnostic mode or when there's something wrong with the sound card (he didn't elaborate further).  I think the beeping has something to do with it and drives Windows nuts as well. 

 

I run FLDIGI as my main TX/RX window and use GRITTY, MMTTY and 2Tone as alternate receive windows using different algorithms in each to decode. As long as GRITTY is disabled everything is fine.  If I enable it, I'm risking a crash.

 

I just discovered this today during BARTG when I had time to experiment.

Max..

I have looked at this numerus times but have never found the cause. N1MM talks to Gritty via a TCP connection and have not been able to get the 2 programs to stop talking to each other anytime I have tried. When you can’t duplicate something its hard to pin point things down to a certain cause.

I have reported this as an issue on the N1MM defect / feature tracking website, but thought I would see if anyone else has experienced this.  This has been an issue for me for a long time now.  I like to run multiple RTTY decoders like many of us do... I use 2Tone for my primary decoder and I like to run GRITTY as my second decoder.  This all works great as expected, but after GRITTY has been running for awhile... N1MM will just terminate out of the blue... 2Tone is left running and GRITTY is left running on the desktop.  There is nothing in the N1MM error log... N1MM just shuts down... I'm working stations and bam, N1MM terminates... or I walk away from the contest for awhile, I come back to the computer and N1MM has terminated.

Has anyone else experienced this?  An RTTY contest weekend... so here come the RTTY related posts. :)

In my case, yes/no....Wireless Similar KB's on 2 discrete USB receivers.

So far as I can determine the PG/UP, PG/DN is the only quirk between the two.

I'll just post this one tidbit again for emphasis....sometimes the PG/UP, PG/DN changes the speed on the OTHER radio.

In the Russian DX contest this weekend, I saw something I've never seen before.  I had downloaded the latest version prior to the contest and have not tried a previous version to see if the behavior goes back to normal...this is a "just askin'" question to see if anybody else saw it since I use Pg Up/Dwn a lot. 

The keyboard Page Up/Page Down keys didn't adjust the CW speed about half the time.  I could use my mouse and adjust speed with the screen carrots (or whatever they are called) but the keyboard buttons wouldn't work intermittently.  Sometimes they worked perfectly.  I am using two keyboard (very badly) which might be part of the problem.  I had not noticed this in previous contests.  One factor may be that I was mixed mode so one keyboard might be SSB and the other was CW?

No biggie, just curious.

Re: Pg Up/Pg Down keys intermittently not working?

VE9AA - Mike
 

Exactly the same here Bob.  Exactly.

Sometimes I could've been running for a while and they would not work......other times, they work first time I tried.

The carrots (or whatever they're called) USUALLY work, but again, not always (at least for me).

I posted about this about a week or so ago (I think I had been using 2 Keyboards only 1 day at that time, so what did I know?)

I still don't know much with a mere week or so under my belt using 2 keyboards, but I know the speed thing doesn't work 100% correctly
and I cannot determine if there is any rhyme nor reason to it.  I tried using the CTRL+ right arrow (or left arrow) to "focus" the single paddle on the correct keyboard, but as far as I can tell there is only a loose correlation to keyboard speed controls and paddle controls.  Stumped!

Frustrating beyond belief when you really really need to slow down (especially in the slower QSO parties) or you get a rare one call you (or that you need to call) and he\s sending at 18wpm and previous you were at 36wpm with no brakes ;-)...that happened this weekend when an SU9 station called me at very slow speeds and I had been sending in the mid 30;s

All whacking the page up/page down did then was change the speed on the OTHER radio(keyboard) which is another anomaly.

YMMV
