IC-9700 does not send CW

Andy
 

I use V1.0.7620.0 experimental, W7Prof/64bits/8GB/2,76GHz
Trx connected to a PC only via USB.
TRX configuration :
USB SEND - USB(A) DTR
USB Keying (CW) - USB(A) RTS
USB Keying (RTTY) - OFF
Hardware configuration in the attachment.
Waterfall and cat works well.
When I try to send cq trx switches to tx, I get the error message "device attached to the computer does not work".
With the esc key, I switch  the trx to RX.
What I have wrongly set ?

Hi Larry
 
Sorry, I can’t provide screen shots here. I heard my screen reader say “unlabelled1 button” just below the search edit box.
 
Yes, I usually hit enter on items, which effectively simulates a double click action.
 
I will look at this again in the light of your comments.
 
Having said this, it would be good to have a digi mode interface analogous to that for CW and SSB. Perhaps that’s one of those “award winning” suggestions that arises from another planet, but it would be good to simply type (mode” (ft8 PSK31 RTTY, or whatever) and have the program do the business as in the conventional modes. This of course, presumes that CAT control of the rig is up to the job, which mine is and that necessary audio signals can be provided either by an internal sound card or external device like Signalink (which I use).
 
As with much modern technology, there still seems to be so much one needs to know that doesn’t necessarily relate to the intent of the job in hand (HI).
 
Cheers, thanks and 73 for now,
 
Terry

Hi Larry,
 
I’ve had a bit of a go at this and was able to read documentation, the search seemed to work fine (though there’s a button called unlabelled 1 showing, that’s probably “search” or “go” that needs a label).
hmmm... where is that? Can you give me a screenshot? I do not see anything like you describe.
 
 
Sadly none of the downloads seemed to do anything for me, though the selected one was show, I couldn’t download it. Perhaps this material has yet to be added?
Downloads is fully operational. When you navigate to a file, right-click to download or select the download icon (a diskette) in the icon row. Right now the default action is to "Show" the file. I'll see if I can change the default (double-click) action to "Download"
 
I didn’t find an option to submit a bug report, except guidance on how to submit one via the List.
Bug Reports and Feature Requests are under >Support >Trouble Ticket. You will not see this menu choice unless you register and are logged-in
 
 
Happy to discuss further or test specific things as necessary.
 
 
Cheers and 73,
 
Terry, GM3WUX

For the past two months the N1MM Dev Team has been working to migrate the current website and its 900+ pages of documentation to a new platform. The work is 100% Content-complete and 90% Feature-complete.
 
Goals
The Primary Goal of the migration is to improve the ease-of-use in installing, configuring, and operating N1MM+ in contests. We cannot reduce the manual's page count, but we think we can deliver better tools for browsing and searching those pages to find the answers that you seek. Hopefully these better tools will bring you quick access to the right information and make you more self-sufficient.
The Secondary Goal is to reduce the burden on the N1MM Dev Team members, who find themselves answering, re-answering and re-re-answering questions that are difficult to get answered on our current ill-equipped website. This new platform should deliver on that primary goal of self-sufficiency.
 
New Features
At first glance the new website looks like the old website, but under-the-covers things are very different. Some of the most significant improvements are:
  • Reduced Web-Page Count - the material in the new N1MM Manual section consists of 31 web-pages, reduced from the current 104 web-pages. Fewer but Larger web-pages should eliminate much of the page-flipping when looking for answers with a browser's <ctrl>+F find function
  • Expanded Menu - navigate to one of those 31 pages directly from the drop-down menu
  • Search and Advanced Search - it works. It's fast. Sorted by Relevance. Results are highlighted on the page
  • Bug Reports and Feature Requests - transparent, search-able. Read your BRs and FRs on-line. Read postings from other users, and the Dev Team's responses, before deciding if you need to submit one
  • Explorer-like File Download - click-able hierarchy should be easy-to-use and familiar to anyone on Microsoft Windows
  • Single-table Supported Contests List - all 400+ supported contests are listed in one table that can be sorted, searched and filtered. Rather than having to know where to look before you look: Is this a UDC contest? An HF contest? A QSO Party? ... 
The Challenge to N1MM+ Users
If you have any spare time, please spend a little on the prototype website. Experiment with the new features listed above - particularly the Search, Advanced Search and Contests List. Create a bogus Bug Report and Feature Request. Leave comments, suggestions and questions in the Comments sections of the Prototype Description page. We hope to take the new website "live" in a few weeks and need some diligent testing before throwing that switch.

Hi Larry,

Just a bit on downloads.
The menu propose two "buttons" that drives you to the named folder from you can get things.

Both are some basically shortcuts to the explorer view which takes time itself to load and needs close attention to select right file to download.
It would be nice to have, at least for the most 3 downloaded files (Full Intall, Latest Update and Full Pdf Manual), to just click and get the file without navigate into file explorer.

My 2 cents.

Re: TESTERS WANTED: Prototype website

I just started looking at the new site. The first thing I did was search for "spot all qsos." The search yielded essentially the entire manual and highlighted all instances of the letters "all." Next I tried "spot all qso" in quotation marks. That yielded no results.  Either I'm not using the search box correctly, or it needs some work.
As I said, just getting started.

Re: Winkeyer 3.01.02 keying FSK RTTY with Winkey KEY2

Steve London
 

Here's what works here:

- SO1R or SO2V. SO2R is not implemented, yet.
- Ignore the "Enable RTTY Mode using Winkey on Port 2". That's a bug and needs to be removed.
- Check Use 2nd Output.
- Check "Enable RTTY Mode using Winkey". Select the port. All 4 ports work - KEY1, KEY2, PTT1, PTT2.

If it still doesn't work, please send me your N1MM Logger.ini by direct e-mail.

I have been able to successfully get Winkeyer to key FSK using the KEY1 port on my Winkeyer.  Latest Winkeyer firmware of course, 3.01.02.  I'm on the latest version of *N1MM: 1.0.7639.0*  Thanks for the effort working with K1EL on this. (using a K3S in SO2V mode to test this)
However, I would really like to use PTT1 and KEY1 for CW and PTT2 and KEY2 for FSK, or just one PPT, in this case PPT1 would be fine for both CW and RTTY. (if possible)
I see the options in the Config Winkey tab like this if Use 2nd Output is not checked:

If I check the Use 2nd Output I see another Winkey RTTY check box:

Regardless as to how I configure the options, I can only get the FSK keying to work properly on KEY1 of the Winkeyer.
And there is an odd balloon popup that implies there is a newer Winkey firmware version, which isn't the case because I have verified this with Steve K1EL:

Could be that the KEY2/PTT2 functionality is still a work in progress?

Look and Feel is great. I have monochrome vision and I seem to be able to find everything. I tried a few searches and it appears that a multi-word search [e.g. "2nd output"] returns every instance of each word. I was looking for the "Use 2nd output" checkbox on the Winkey configuration screen.

Re: TESTERS WANTED: Prototype website

Tom Wagner (N1MM)
 

Search for "Use 2nd" and include the quotes.

Then use Ctl-F when you pick the config page to find the text.

Hi Yes, I also noticed this (frequency arrow on LHA of bandmap stuck and didn’t follow the K3’s VFO).  Happened about 2 to 3 times in the 30 min or so that I was on for the CWTs at 1300 & 1900Z.  Closed the Bandmap and reopened to cure the problem (only temporary fix).

Re: TESTERS WANTED: Prototype website

Dan,

I experienced the same issue: too many hits with SPOT ALL QSOS (not in quotes), zero hits with "SPOT ALL QSOS" (in quotes).

So I opened the PDF and did the same search. Zero hits. I don't think that exact expression exists in the manual.

Next, acting on a message from Pete N4ZR, I searched for the exact expression "SPOT ALL S&P QSOS" Zero hits again. But this failed Search was different. Turns out that the Search input field is HTML-sensing, and that & is a reserved character. This is not pretty ... but you can search for a reserved character if you know to use the HTML character code for those few reserved HTML terms. Like & and < and > and ". ugh!

So, how would you enter a search for a phrase with an embedded ampersand? replace the & with & a m p ;

Not sure how to explain this in the documentation... <sigh>

Re: TESTERS WANTED: Prototype website

Tom & Dev Team

What I noticed when I searched for "So2r" or "so2r operation" on the new page is I don't see any obvious hits for this, but on the 'old' wiki, there are several pages dedicated to this.

I would've left a comment on the 'other' page as requested, but I don't really need another user name and password. ;-)

For example, the first hit when searching for SO2R is called "the configurer" ( I am sure buried in there is SO2R information somewhere, but it wasn't obvious)
(etc. for other hits)

Perhaps I don't fully appreciate the new format.

tnx

"Big Gun switch"

Jim N7US
 

Using this week's update, 1.0.7639, in today's CWT using S&P and ESM, the so-called "big gun switch," that positions the cursor to the received report field after calling a station, didn't work. I had to hit the space bar to move the cursor for each S&P QSO.

I filed a bug report and reverted to last week's 1.0.7620, and that feature works fine.

Re: TESTERS WANTED: Prototype website

Larry, 
Thanks for the answer. Unfortunately, that presents two problems. One is the low probability one of a reserved character that you mentioned. The other, more serious one, is that a notion of  the info you're looking for isn't good enough. You need the exact phrase. That will not be the case most often than not. I'm not smart enough to think of a fix that doesn't require a lot of labor to link topics with notional key words.  Maybe a third party search engine ($$)?

When >Searching for "so2r" the new site returns the titles and initial text of all of the many pages that contain that expression. If you navigate to a page the found term will be highlighted in yellow. Scrolling down it is easy to see. If it is a large page - like the Entry Window - then use your browser's ctrl+F find function to go directly to the citation.
