Fldigi With and FT-857D

I am having a problem trying to configure Fldigi to key my Yaesu 857-D.  The digital interface is through a RIGblaster Plug with receive audio through the sound card.  I can see the receive audio but can no get the transmit to configure.  The Plug and Play is on Com 2 but I can not see it identified in the Audio Soundcard tab.

Anyone got one to work?

Thanks

Re: NE QSO Party problem. SOLVED!!

Ok John  but none of those happened or exist.  I hit enter and they logged but with the second county showing error.  Don't know how it happened so asking out of curiosity.


Guess it is another one of those weird things that only happens to me.

Eric,

 

When the program senses an exchange error, the Entry window  status line displays the missing/invalid  exchange message.

If you try to log the exchange again, the popup window below appears.

 

 

You can force log the contact by clicking Yes, by pressing CTRL+ALT+Enter, or by pressing a function key containing one of the {ForceLog} macros.

 

The county line QSO exchanges are also checked. If there is an error, the user is made aware of the entry mistake.

Is there a way to force a log entry besides CTRL+ALT+ENTER?  When I accidentally added a letter to the second county of a grid line station all I did was ENTER and it logged both with the ERR invalid exchange for the bad one.  Had to delete the bad one and redo as editing the contact would not make the error go away.  There was no warning until it was too late.

If you imported a special section file for one of the other contests, reload the standard section table. File, Open Log in Database, select the current contest log, click “Import Section List”.

While that window is open, look at the Category Mode, make sure it includes the mode you are using. The selection SSB+CW is typical. I mentioned this earlier.

Re: NE QSO Party problem. SOLVED!!

Bill Stravinsky
 

During the course of the weekend I was switching between 3 contests (IN7QPNE-ARI DX-DEQP).  I'm pretty sure I often got the ERR to be inserted after I switched.
I think it was when n1mm held onto a call from the bandmap that was not in the associated contest after switching.  I actually forget what I did to correct it but it was
easy enough.  Maybe an F12.  It also may have occurred if I minimized n1mm and came back to it.  I forget but I did see that ERR on occasion.

Was no big deal.

Bill
K3WJV

p.s.  I got a popup window when restarting the IN7QPNE that only briefly stayed on the screen.  Something about the DE QP is included with the other three.
That would be a good thing as I got in trouble when I switched to DE then forgot to switch back and worked a dupe or two from say the NEQP while in the DE log.
The help file doesn't say DE is included with the trio.

Re: NE QSO Party problem. SOLVED!!

Gerald Boutin (VE1DT)
 

John,

This issue is confusing to users because correcting the EXCHANGE is insufficient to correct the logged QSO record. Even after the EXCHANGE has been corrected and a Tools/Rescore done, the QSO will still only show 0 points.

The problem field is the SECTION field which will still have "ERR" in it instead of the State. This field must also be manually edited using the QSO record editor to remove the "ERR". Then a Tools/Rescore will show the correct points for the QSO.

Compounding the issue is that many users would have double clicked the EXCHANGE in the Log window to make the correction and would not be aware that the problem is in the SECTION field. The resultant popup Window after correcting the EXCHANGE continues to indicate that the problem is with a "Missing /Invalid Exchange".

The ideal solution would be to have the program recalculate the SECTION from the corrected EXCHANGE entry. The issue is not new and goes back to at least v1.0.5924.0.

This issue also exists in the CA QSO party, so it may also occur in other  QSO party contests as well. On the other hand, once the correct EXCHANGE has been entered, the Cabrillo file is correct other than for the claimed score.

Aah hah! I see the problem! I highlighted the contact, and selected Edit; looking at the info there, it is showing the Section as ERR!!! What the heck is ERR, and where did it come from??? Anyway, I erased that, and put in NH, and bingo! The contact is now showing 2 points! Thanks for the help!

David,

 

The program uses the Station Information window, ARRL Section box, to determine your location. Is it an ARRL section outside of the NEWE, IN, and 7QP QSO Party?

 

If you imported a special section file for one of the other contests, reload the standard section table. File, Open Log in Database, select the current contest log, click “Import Section List”.

While that window is open, look at the Category Mode, make sure it includes the mode you are using. The selection SSB+CW is typical. I mentioned this earlier.

Hi John. Glad it worked for you, but not working here. Will not give points for ROCNH. Even tried a rescore with no change. Using the latest Call History file, and N1MM+ Version 1.0.7161.0. What else can I do? Thanks in advance.

Worked N1IX in the NE QSO Party; he gave me ROCNH as his locator. N1MM would not give me any points for that contact. I changed it to NHROC with the same result. That is a valid county for NH. What gives??

Re: How export log that shows operator column?

As Rich has mentioned, ADIF_Master is the preferred program for fancy manipulation of ADIF files.

Maybe you don't want that much fanciness? If you only want to convert an ADIF file into a CSV that can be read directly by Excel (and not back again to ADIF), take a look at ADIFtoCSV. This simple little utility creates a column for every field that occurs in the ADIF file, and a row for every record. See ADIFtoCSVbyK8UT here:

Re: N1MM issues

Michael,

The reason Expedition is not included is because it caused issues with the IOTA contest.

County line operation is described in the manual.

This shouldn’t have been a surprise, the first sentence is:
"Begin by selecting Operator Category = Rover or Station Category = Rover or Mobile in the Contest Setup dialog."

http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-index.php?page=Setup+QSO+Parties+-+CW+and+SSB&structure=N1MM+Logger+Documentation#QSO_Party_County_Line_Operation

Remembering the county line parameters or bonus station callsign changes would require a database change. I don't have the time and I don't want to risk the potential issues to the other contests.

Subject: [N1MMLoggerPlus] N1MM issues

Just participated in the 7QP QSO Party contest using N1MM logger
software. We ran into several issues.

First, we were operating as an Expedition in a field environment on a
county line. When we tried to configure N1MM, it told us that we could
only set up County Line as Rover status. Why can't an Expedition set up
as a County Line? We are a big multi-station multi-operator operation. I
thought a Rover was a mobile operating from multiple locations.

Second, when we set our exchange as both county lines by entering
COUNTYLINE in the callsign box, then entering the counties, it is not
remembered if we have to restart N1MM. When something happens to cause
us to restart N1MM, if we forget to enter COUNTYLINE and input the
counties, it only logs contacts from one county instead of both.
Obviously, this has a great impact on our score. It seems to me that the
program should be able to remember configuration entries on a restart.

Next, in N1MM, there are columns to select mode and band. When selecting
the digital mode, it brings up a window for fldigi. This is some highly
modified version of fldigi we have not seen before and I could find no
instructions for its use specific to this N1MM version. I loaded macros
and configuration from N1MM and not from the fldigi installed on the
computer. Whenever I tried to transmit from fldigi or click on a macro,
fldigi would crash with a pop-up window saying "Fast Light has crashed.
Sending a report to Microsoft." with a Close Window button. Once closed,
N1MM then lost connection with the radio (Icom IC-706MkIIG). It no
longer read frequency info. On the band/mode selection columns, only the
40/CW and 20/DIG buttons responded. Clicking on any phone buttons did
nothing. This precluded us from running digital modes in the contest.

We were in a remote location with no Internet access and had no way to
review any help files or documentation, since that appears to only be
available online.

I will admit I should have tested N1MM more thoroughly before going into
the field with it. This was my first venture with this team and was told
everything would be configured for me once I arrived on site. Obviously
I have a lot to learn about this program before the next trip.


Thanks for any suggestions.

Re: How export log that shows operator column?

Douglas,

 

I have read Rich’s reply.

 

If you want to look at operator QSO statistics including graphing, click View, Statistics.

Set the Row or Column dropdown to Operator and the other to Hour, Band, etc.

The File menu allows you to copy the chart data.

ADIF files are text files and can be opened with any text editor. In Notepad, use the File > Open menu item and set the File type (to the right or the file name at the bottom of the File Open window) to All Files (*.*). However, ADIF files are not particularly human-friendly if you want to review and manipulate data.

You can import Cabrillo files into Excel quite easily, using the Excel text-to-columns wizard (either using spaces as delimiters, or fixed columns). However, not all of the logged data is exported to Cabrillo; in particular, the OPERATOR data for individual QSOs is not exported.

I'd suggest you try out a program called ADIF Master (<http://www.dxshell.com/adif-master.html>). This program reads ADIF files and displays them in a spreadsheet-like layout with lots of features for data inspection and editing. If you really want to get an ADIF file into Excel rather than using ADIF Master's own capabilities, you can export it from ADIF Master into csv format and open that with Excel.

Re: N1MM issues

Regarding your digital mode problems, did you consult the documentation before trying to use the program? The use of fldigi and other digital engines in N1MM+ is described in detail in the N1MM+ manual, which is available either online or in pdf form. You can download a pdf copy of the full manual from the N1MM+ web site. The online manual is updated continuously; the pdf copy you can download from the web site is updated monthly. If you place a copy of the pdf manual in your Documents\N1MM Logger+\SupportFiles directory and name it N1MMplus.pdf, the sixth entry in the Help menu in the program will open that pdf file (most of the other entries in the Help menu require Internet access, but this one does not).

For information specific to the use of fldigi in N1MM+, see
<http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-index.php?page=Digital+Setup&structure=N1MM+Logger+Documentation#Downloading_and_Installing_Fldigi> and
<http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-index.php?page=Digital+-+Fldigi+for+Sound+Card+Modes&structure=N1MM+Logger+Documentation>. In the pdf version of the manual, look for sections 2.7.3 and 2.7.6 .

N1MM+ does not use a modified version of fldigi. It invokes the standard fldigi program with a command-line option that displays only the waterfall portion of the fldigi display window. All logging is done in N1MM Logger+, not in fldigi, so the parts of the normal fldigi window that are used when logging in fldigi run stand-alone are not displayed, since they are not used.

Also, all rig control is done by N1MM Logger+. From your description of the problems you had with rig control, it sounds as if you might have configured fldigi to do rig control. This is not possible when fldigi is run from N1MM+; the rig control serial port can only be used from one program, and cannot be shared between N1MM+ and fldigi.

As described in the documentation, you also need to place the copy of fldigi that is used in N1MM+ in a directory that the program has write access to, i.e. not in the C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files(x86) path. Failure to do this can result in program crashes because of access control errors in Windows.
