Re: Rotor Window

Hi Larry,

I finally got it working correctly. I had all the three frequencies [20,15,10 the antenna is a tri-bander] in the one column in the config  >antennas section of N!MM+. Once I separated these into each having a different line it all started to work. The error message [Prosistel 61D not defined] has also disappeared today as well. So all good for now, many thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

The <alt>+J keyboard shortcode is an Entry Window command, and does not work if your cursor is in the Rotor window.

If you have the Prosistel rotor defined in the Configurer >Antennas "Rotor Description" column for the current band, after entering a callsign and pressing <spacebar> or <tab> the heading should appear beneath the message buttons in the Entry Window. Pressing <ctrl>+J should turn the rotator.

Subject: [N1MMLoggerPlus] Rotor Window

I am having some trouble getting the rotor window to work correctly.

I can turn the rotor by clicking on anyone of the macro buttons, or by typing a number into the small window that displays the heading & pressing the enter key on the keyboard. But I can't use Alt.J or Alt.L to turn it. there is a message comes up in the bottom of the rotor window saying:  Prosistel 61D not defined.
I have the Prosistel 61D set up on COM1, & as I said it works fine from the macro buttons, so the COM port must be working ok.

Is there something I'm missing, or is it supposed to work like that with the Prosistel rotor??
This is no big problem, but 'just nice to have' !!

Hi Rudy

Thanks for the suggestion. It is the first time I use the IC-7300 with the Acom 1000 and USB cable Keying. Normally I use a winkeyer.

I have ferrite 31 around, so it is easy to try it. I will check the buffer setting of the serial port too.
I was using a virtual serial port as I had an sdr receiver following the IC-7300 connected to a RX antenna using Omnirig.

RFI is getting into your USB cable. You need 6-10 turns thru material #31 ferrite.

Also, go to Device Manager and under Advanced properties for COM  port turn off buffering.

CQ WW - repeat CQ interrupted #IC7300

Hello,

I have observed this a few times during the CQ WW cw this weekend.

Whilst calling CQ and having the repeat function on, the programme will stop sending CQ and a number 9 appeared on the "Entry Window" callsign box.
PTT and cw was implemented via usb cable [DTR/RTS pins], instead of an external keyer. 

Any info on what this is suggesting? or has anybody else experienced this?

Re: N1MM Command for KAT500

My understanding is that the K-POD only send command strings to the K3/K3S for execution. 

The KAT500 Utility is the method you’ll need to use.

Re: Un-claiming contacts.

ve3ki
 

As you have noticed, the program calculates a claimed score based on all of your contacts, not just the ones on your single band. The claimed score doesn't really matter once the log checkers do their work, but it's not hard to calculate the single-band claimed score.

To calculate the correct claimed score, open the Score Summary window. In it you will see columns for QSOs, Points, Zones and Country multipliers. Look in the row for the band you will be entering in. Add the Zones number to the Country number for your multiplier total, and multiply that by the number in the Points column. That will be your single-band claimed score.

Hi,

Q: I would like to work on several bands, but only submit a single band entry. Is this allowed? How should I submit my log?

Yes, you may work other bands and still submit your log as a single band entry. First, please make sure your log includes all QSOs made on all bands. This helps us with the log checking. Second, make sure the Cabrillo file header has your category set for the single band you want to enter. (e.g., CATEGORY-BAND: 20M) Only the QSOs on the single band will be used to compute your score.

Please enter only one log containing ALL QSOs! Each log that you submit will overwrite the previously submitted log.

Soooo. I will submit a single band 20m entry but worked a few on 80m and 160m last night after 20m went out. I logged them, there there in the log, and even though I told it I'm 20m single band it still seems to have scored them and included them in the total.

I've set single band 20m, is that enough?

Or do I need to adjust the claimed score to remove the non-20m QSO's?

What's the preferred method.

 

BTW, super 20m long path opening to US and Caribbean from SE Asia this evening, a real treat and at least 5 ATNO's. Logged N1MM also but just a fraction disappointed the software didn't recognise this and produce some appropriate fanfare / easter egg etc. Oh well :)

When you modified the F2 key to add 5NN yesterday, did you SAVE the new F key definition file with the added 5NN?  And then, did you assign that saved F-Key definition to the CQ WW CW contest?

I'm guessing that when you finished contesting yesterday, and you shut down your computer, you didn't save the modified F2 key and didn't assign the saved key definition file to the CQ WW CW contest.

So, this morning, when you started up the program to resume the contest, it loaded the file you started with YESTERDAY... The one with the F2 key having {EXCH} only.

Now, before you continue, add the 5NN to the F2 key, like you did yesterday, then save the macro file. Call it something like "NEW CQ WW KEYS" or something you will remember. Once you save it, assign this saved macro file to the contest definition.

Next time you shut down the computer, then later resume this contest, the program will then load the modified file with 5NN added to the {EXCH} to the F2 key automatically.  Every time you open this contest in the future, the file with the 5NN in F2 will be reloaded by default.

Re: Rotor Window

Lu Romero - W4LT
 

Aha!

Had this issue while helping K5KG set up his station.  However, at K5KG, in the rotor box, we got simply "* not defined" as the error message.  You could manually turn the rotor, and it would indicate in N1MMRotor, but you couldn't control the rotor at all with the program, either from the entry window or the rotor display itself.

The rotor worked perfectly with WinTest, however, with no issues.  So we know it wasn't in the rotor setup in the computer.

Re: Un-claiming contacts.

Mike ND9G
 

You did everything correctly, as far as I know. The logger is keeping your overall score.

When you enter make sure your cabrillo file and any selections you make say 20M. The other  contacts will be ignored for your scoring, but used for log checking for others.

If you want to post to 3830 or something, you'll need to do the math yourself to post only your 20m scores.

The same thing has happened to me with my 80m entry, but playing around during the day.
