N1MM Logger+ companion program for the IC-7610/7300

Björn Ekelund, SM7IUN
 

I have written a small piece of software for my own use but since so many have asked I post it here also. 

It is a "convenience" companion to N1MM Logger+ for the IC-7610 and IC-7300. (Likely works for IC-785x but not IC-7800).

It consumes very little screen real estate and offers:
1. Configurable, automatic switching of waterfall edges and REF level based on mode (CW, Phone and Digital) and band. 
2. Waterfall zoom, zooming in the waterfall to +/-10kHz around the current frequency (with its own REF level).
3. Per-band output power level (helpful when using PA, also includes is also a "barefoot" mode with 100% on all bands)

Changing the settings is done using two text boxes and two sliders. All settings are remembered, 
including used COM port.

It's open source under the MIT license so anyone wanting to copy, extend, or customize 
it is completely free to do so. Just clone the GIT in Visual Studio. 

Since N1MM occupies the main CI-V port, it requires that your computer has access 
to also the "Remote" CI-V port on the radio. It also requires "Radio" broadcast to be 
enabled in N1MM.

Gagarin Cup contest

John Bednar
 

We received two bug reports for the Gagarin Cup contest indicating that the Cabrillo output contains incorrect zones for some contacts.

 

If you operated the Gagarin Cup contest this past weekend, download and install the experimental version for GCup located here:

http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-list_file_gallery.php?galleryId=20

 

Export the Cabrillo with this version and resubmit your log.

I was not home and was unable to operate this year. However, from past experience it is important to log the zone that is sent to you, not the zone that is in the pre-populated database which is sometimes wrong on Russian zones.

IC7610 owners: Limited time offer

Tom Wagner (N1MM)
 

I borrowed an IC7610 from Icom to develop the I/Q interface for the radio.  I will return it on 4/30.

I have some improved SO2V code for the 7610 and the best time to fix any bugs in it is while I still have one in my possession.

If you would like to help test the support, please contact me direct at 7610@....

Thanks.

Tom - N1MM

P.S. if you don't want to test it, please don't complain later ;-)

Adding digirite?

Terry Robinson
 

Hi all,
 
I’ve just heard of an open source program for FT8 that is normally integrated into Writelog. It seems from the literature that this could be run stand alone, but doesn’t do any rig control or logging. It sounds like it could be integrated into N1MM Logger + to good effect? Any thoughts?
 
Cheers and thanks,
 
Terry, GM3WUX

I have worked with Wayne from Writelog on this for the past couple of months. I am just not sure this is the way I want to go with this yet

Re: DXLab Gateway ?

Andy,

I hate to expose my ignorance but it's sometimes the only way to get smarter. Ha.  Where would I find the setting for N1MM+ contest category?  I've done a search on the online help to no avail.

Thanks for any assistance.

Chris NØCC

Re: DXLab Gateway ?

ve3ki
 

What do you mean by "contest category" - the entry category (single-op, multi-op, unassisted, assisted, high power, low power, etc.), or do you mean the choice between different contests with different exchanges?

Both of them are in the Contest Setup dialog window (File > Open Log in Database..., or if you are creating a new contest log, File > New Log in Database...). The contest type (ARRL FD, CQ WPX, etc.) is in the scrollable selector at the top of the window. The entry category is in one or several entry boxes lower down in the window.

Re: DXLab Gateway ?

Thanks, Rich.  I found the settings.  I was looking for the entry category so that the external lookup function was available.  Now I have to read through contest setup.  I figured out for myself that I have to enter my call in the Operator field or the system won't let me exit the database.  I am continually amazed at the level of functionality and detail that both N1MM and DXLab contain.  My hat is off tot the authors of both.  They are really amazing pieces of software.

Thanks again.  The support  provided on these groups is truly amazing.

CQMM Contest

Jim Ciurczak
 

Looking at my current totals it shows the following:
 Band     QSOs     Pts  Pfx  Pt/Q
     7          38     148      1    4   3.9
    14         40     144      1   18   3.6
    21           3       9        3    0   3.0
 Total      81     301        5   22   3.7
Score: 8,127
1 Mult = 3.0 Q's

There is no doubt that I have more than one DXCC prefix worked on 20 and 40....anyone else having this issue or am I not understanding the scoring?

N1MM+ for simultaneous contests ??

CW Morse
 

Does N1MM+ support logging separately for more than one contest at a time?  e.g., today Michigan and Ontario ran at the same time.  I think I opened logs for both but didn't find any easy way to switch back & forth.  I searched the manual for anything that I thought would do it, with no luck.
TIA & 73

Alt-F then 2, will toggle between the two most recent contests.

BUT ONLY IF ALL ENTRY FIELDS ARE BLANK.

The requirement that all entry fields be blank dates from last summer is a MAJOR USABILITY DEGRADATION for weekends with more than one contest.

Following this. My friend is having the same issue.

Set up for both contests, when you want to change, click
File, then choose from the list at the bottom of the window
that opens.

Re: CQMM Contest

Understand the mults but my score is not correct. I just discovered you need to download a special country file from the N1MM+ site for this contest.

Re: Adding digirite?

Terry Robinson
 

Hi Rick,
 
As a blind operator, I was hoping this could be a step towards a screen reader accessible solution, that would make FT8 available for general and mixed mode contest logging?
 
Anyway, I look forward to hearing more about this in due course.
 
Cheers for now,
 
Terry

Re: N1MM+ for simultaneous contests ??

Bill Stravinsky
 

You can toggle between more than just two recent contests.  It appears you can switch between the last 9 contests loaded.  This past weekend
I had 5 contests loaded and switched between all of them during the weekend. CQMM-YUDX-HolyLand-MIQP and ON QP.
