QSX during Macros

Tom Fitzpatrick <k4ie_tom@...>
 

     I'm using the Winkey outboard keyer. I have noticed that when I send a macro there is no QSX. I use an Elecraft K-3. It is set to QSK and it's there when I use the paddle. I must have missed something during setup???

Re: Unexpected result with latest update

Paula,

I am not hearing that here, but perhaps I do not have the same configuration. Can you give us a little more information about your station?

What mode are you in when this happens?
Have you configured for a particular contest?
Do you happen to know which version of WinkeyerUSB you are running?
Is this a local configuration (not remote station) on a Windows PC?

Subject: [N1MMLoggerPlus] Unexpected result with latest update

Just installed the latest update and am now experiencing generation of a sidetone beep every one second in my Winkeyer USB whenever N1MM is running. Anyone have an idea as to why this might be?

Good morning Claude:
I am hoping to have my first 160M antenna up in time for the contest.  Kindly include me in the call history.
Thanks!

In rtty I use QRV on {otherfreq} I would think this would work on cow as well....

Hi Rich,

Thanks for getting back to me.

I left my radios at HR9 until Feb and can’t try anything for a few months. If I read the link correctly, on computer LEFT I should have a function key that says “PSE QSY {PASS RIGHT}”?

So if RIGHT is tuned to 21.039.7 the function key will send PSE QSY 21R039

Did I get this right?

Re: Ability to send KAT500 and KPA500 commands through the K-Pod

Jack Brindle
 

Yes and no. The K3, KPA500 and KAT500 all have RS-232 level serial ports to communicate with the computer. The K3S also has a USB-serial interface that is handled as a serial port in the computer. The K3/K3S, KPA500 and KAT500 communicate with each other (to various degrees as previously explained) using a proprietary bus. The async serial communications provide the best and widest array of control for each device and is well-documented, so it is recommended that it be used for control of this sort. Thus the various methods to provide PC, Arduino and other methods for communicating with and controlling the devices.

The entire method of antenna switching and control is not well standardized at all. Perhaps the best attempt at standardization is in the YCCC MOAS system, although that has not gained traction either. So for now we are left with a selection of boxes that allow for control of their functions as the manufacturer sees fit. This is especially true, of course with transceivers from each manufacturer.

The K3 can talk to the KAT500, but there is no return path. The K3 cannot send data to the KPA500; the KPA can only send data to the K3. In both cases hardware limits the communications.
 
I suspect you would be better off in trying to convince the N1MM+ authors to add support for sending commands to the devices (or others), as other packages have. As an example, the Mac-based SkookumLogger has full control of both the KPA500 and KAT500 as well as several other devices. I would envision the support in N1MM+ for your needs as being a hook in the antenna selection code that would invoke a command string to do what you wish. Of course a serial port for the device would need to be added. Thus the task becomes somewhat more effort that you might expect at first glance.

URGENT: Logs wanted for next release of SuperCheckPartial

Stu K6TU
 

Hi Folks!

I am planning to release a new version of the Super Check Partial database files on December 2nd, 2018. I am requesting your logs for input to the database files. Please send your logs for this release by noon PST December 1st, 2018.

If you would like to contribute your CABRILLO format logs for the SCP database, please send them at any time to:

logs@...

You can send more than one log attachment in a single email BUT PLEASE DON’T SEND THEM IN A ZIP file!

Please DO NOT SEND ADIF encoded logs…

If there is a new contesting call sign you want added to the database for activity in the next few months, let me know before the next update cutoff time. Please send your requests for adds/deletions etc. in an email to logs@... WITHOUT ANY ATTACHED logs otherwise the email robot will process the logs automatically and your request will not be seen.

However... note that the monthly SCP database gets about 1500 downloads per month. This suggests that the majority of contesters are using an old version of the database probably between 12-18 months out of date. As a result, there is little utility in adding a call that you intend to use in only one or two contests.

At any time, please attach in an email the same Cabrillo format log that you submitted to the contest sponsor and send it to

logs@...

I have all logs submitted since the last release of the database files on November 2nd, 2018 and today - If you have already sent me your logs, there is no reason to send them again.

Logs from any contest within the last 24 months are always appreciated.

Some of the more commonly submitted logs are from:

CQ WW DX - CW, Phone, RTTY
CQ WPX - CW, Phone, RTTY
CQ 160M - CW, Phone
ARRL DX - CW, Phone
ARRL Sweepstakes - CW, Phone
ARRL RTTY Roundup
ARRL 10M
ARRL 160M
IARU Radiosport
Russian DX Contest
Worked All Europe - CW, Phone, RTTY

NOTE: NAQP logs are particularly under-represented in the log pool as are other contests where the manager now requires submission via a web form. Logs from these contests are especially requested!

Thanks for your help!

Re: N1MM Command for KAT500

I use both the KAT-500 and KPA-500 desktop utilities under Linux.  They both work very well and I can only assume they work equally well under Windows.  Since my equipment is a little ways from my operating position, it is great having full control over both pieces of hardware from the desktop computer.

Remote Hams / RCForb is also a great piece of software the will give you control over your rig, KPA500 and KAT500 from anywhere.  You can even use your Android phone.  The only thing you don't get is a spectrum scope.

Mike, it’s super easy to hit the Pgup/Pgdwn keys to adjust keyer speed. I do in on the fly during transmission and it works great in contests like the weekly CWOPS CWT with its vastly verging CW speed (either fast or very fast).
