60m QSO - DDE output string incorrectly shows 80m

Hi all,
N1MM+ ver 1.0.7576.0
Windows 10 Home ver 1809

Using the N1MM to Dxkeeper gateway, 60m contacts in N1MM+ are being transmitted with incorrect BAND info in the DDE packet. It is sent as 80m instead of 60m. Sample packet below:
18@03:17:52 DDE: 001log<CALL:5>ZL2AJ <RST_RCVD:3>599 <RST_SENT:3>599 <FREQ:5>5.353 <BAND:3>80M <FREQ_RX:5>5.353 <BAND_RX:3>80M <MODE:2>CW <QSO_DATE:8>20190318 <TIME_ON:6>031752 <STX:3>117 <SRX:1>0 <PFX:3>ZL2 <CONTEST_ID:2>DX <NAME:4>TEST <STATION_CALLSIGN:5>ZL3GA <OPERATOR:5>ZL3GA <EOR>

Is this a setting issue or?
Thanks and 73

Since no one has answered your question I'll take a guess.  N1MM Logger+ is a contest program and 60 meters is not permitted in any contest I know off, so maybe N1MM Logger+ has no reasons to include 60 meters.  Including it would create the possibility that users might choose it by mistake.  It adds unnecessary complications to an already complicated program.

Thanks Art but 60m is already included in the program. Dxpeditions and General Logging users make use of it. This appears to be a bug as the frequency is parsed correctly, it's just the <band> field that is incorrect in the DDE packet.

And hopefully a further clue to the developers, ADIF export is working fine with it correctly identifying the <band> field  as 60m. See below.

Geoff,

The RadioInfo packets sent via UDP from N1MM+ to the gateway do not contain a <band> XML tag, only Frequency. Frequency is being sent correctly.

The incorrect band interpretation must be getting inserted by the gateway.

Thanks Larry, I will check that out. The gateway app may need an update.

Solved by updating the N1MM to DXLabs gateway app. Thanks Larry!
