Re: Out of resources opening CW reader CWGet

I suspect the "out of resources" message may mean that your system doesn't have enough memory to handle all of the tasks you are asking it to run. What is your computer and how much memory does it have? This is only a guess, but for diagnosis purposes you might try shutting down one or more of the other programs you have running (I see lots of icons in the Task Bar) to see whether doing that makes any difference.

Can I program "Crtl K" on a function key?

Holger H
 

Hi, I'd like to have a single key to open the CW window instead of "Ctrl K". So one of the F-keys would be the option.
Is there a way to create that as a custom macro? e.g. using {CTRL+K}? 
And NO, we don't use paddles anymore (since 1990).

The macro {CTRL-K} is obviously for TNC's and does not work.

Also why is the CW send window not automatically switching back to receive mode once all text is sent? It is not in send mode when opened.

Thank you 
Holger, ZL3IO

Holger

If you would like to re-map keys for special functions like this, we suggest you check out the AutoHotKey (AHK) utility.

When you want to start sending, the program knows that because you have pressed the first key.

When you want to stop sending, the program never knows if you are done or you're just a slow typist.

Pressing <return> or <esc> closes the window.

Thanks for replying Larry.
So it sounds like it's not possible from within N1MM? I was hoping I missed something.

As for the receive / transmit change: the program doesn't need to know if I'm finished or not. Once the text is sent go to receive and if new text comes up start transmitting again but don't stay in the transmit mode.

That would not work. Consider the following scenario:

Your cursor is in the Exchange field, expecting you to type the other station's serial number. You decide to open the CW window and send him something. The CW window automatically closes. Your cursor is back in the Exchange field. You start typing the exchange... and the CW window pops open and sends the first number of his serial number. I don't think you'd want that to happen.

N1MM+'s flow and keyboard sequences are designed around the most likely next-thing a contester is going to do. Opening a CW Window is an unlikely event, and thus requires deliberate open and close commands.

For those of you who were not there, Tom did a wonderful acceptance speech.

Tom did make a point to share the glory with the rest of the N1MM development team, as there are many folks that have worked on this great software that we use and enjoy.  In speaking with Rich - VE3KI, he did point out that without the the great leadership and guidance that Tom - N1MM provides, none of this would be possible, putting the focus once again on the boss.  Great teamwork starts at the top.

Congratulations to Tom - N1MM and the rest of the team.  And as I commented to Rich, Tom has a smile that was a mile wide on his face the whole evening!!  It was truly wonderful to be there.

Re: Can I program "Crtl K" on a function key?

Holger H
 

Hi Larry
Again thanks for your fast reply. You're correct, the case you're describing is surely not what I ask for.
I may not have explained well enough what I want. 
1. A single key to enter the CW chat window instead of "CTRL + K", A macro function could solve this.
2. While in the CW chat window, switch back to receive once all text is sent but stay in the CW chat window. If I want to enter a number I'll of course have to leave this window. But currently I need to leave and re-enter the chat window for chatting which is painful. Please assume the situation that my partner replies and I may have a another comment afterwards. To be able to receive the reply I need to leave the chat window. To reply again I have to re-enter the chat window. --> Painful!

Both features are possible in other contest programs.

Re: Can I program "Crtl K" on a function key?

Holger H
 

I wonder if it easier if I'd give a use case for that feature.
Our younger operators are digital generation. They do not use a paddle, never did, but they can copy morse code and write blind on a keyboard.

We often operate M/2 at ZM4T. Now you run a station, get a Multiplier for another band and you want to move him over. You can still program "PSE QSY" to an F-key but to send the frequency you need to use the chat window. The QRG of the other station will change or the frequency to meet may be up high above the crowded zone. So what you do is the following:
1. Fire say F11 with PSE QSY 
2. Move into CW chat window and send the frequency & ?
3. Wait for response (but stay in the chat window if repeats or replies are needed).

There may be a need to repeat the frequency or give another comment before continuing to run. In N1MM+ we need to always jump in and out of the CW chat window. We would to stay in the chat window until we finish chatting and be able to receive replies. Less key's needed. less stress, less failures/irritations.

73 Holger

Re: Can I program "Crtl K" on a function key?

John Bednar
 

 

Holger,

 

There are several ways to pass a station that doesn’t involve hand keying the frequency.

 

Here is what we use:

Run F7 function key message:

      QSY Pse, {Log}>>r  ! QSY?

Run F8 function key message:

      QSY Msg, >>QSY>> {LastPassedFreq}

 

Use the color of the Band Buttons to determine if a station needs to be passed. When you want to pass a station press F7 to log the QSO instead of logging with the Enter key. This will log the QSO and ask the station if they will QSY. If the station will QSY, right click on the Band Button for the band you want to send the station to, then press F8. Right clicking on the Band Button finds the station frequency on the network to pass to and sends the spot to that station. The Band Button click also adds a pass note to the Notes for the contest.

 

The right click Entry Window menu allows you to disable the left click on the Band Buttons preventing the multiuser station from QSYing.


If the station is not running use ALT+Z to set the pass frequency.

 

See the other multi user macros for different methods of passing.

Re: N1MM issues

WA7SKG <wa7skg@...>
 

Okay, so the program is unable to remember County Line parameters. For this contest expedition, I was just told to install the program on my laptop and someone at the site would set up the configuration. As we did not have Internet access in the remote area, I had no access to the manual, since it is online. I was unaware that the manual was only available when you had Internet access.

So, in the heat of the contest, for whatever reason, I have to restart N1MM. I forget to re-enter the COUNTYLINE parameter, so it only logs my contacts for one of the counties. Is there any way to easily fix the log, which is now missing dozens of entries for the other county? This could have a big impact on our score.

Michael WA7SKG


John Bednar wrote on 05/08/2018 03:36 AM:

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.
