Re: Windows7

Carl J. Denbow <n8vz.ars@...>
 

I'm having a heck of a time with Win7-32. I've installed and reinstalled the router numerous times. Using a registry cleaner in between. I keep getting a blank screen when I try to install the virtual ports. Also, the icons do not appear correctly on the short cuts -- just the default generic icon. I guess I need instructions on how to totally uninstall so I can reinstall correctly. Thanks.

Re: MK2R+/TS-850 CAT Polling Noise in TX Audio

John K3TN
 

I've run into that with using older (Signalink, Rigblaster) audio interfaces but I think I fixed that issue years ago.

Just got a K3, hooked it up to the MK2R+ - no noise problem whatsoever. So, it is definitely something related to the 850. UPS also brought some ferrite beads, so over the weekend will try those on the cables to the 850.

Some of the Kenwood transceivers are too sensitive on the
line input. Both the TS-870 and TS-790 have internal level
controls that appear to be set "to the max." You might look
in the service manual for the TS-850 and see if there is a
similar "ext mod" adjustment. If so, turn it down to about
25%.

Subject: [microHAM] MK2R+/TS-850 CAT Polling Noise in TX Audio


Last weekend I got a MK2R+ interfaced to my TS-850. All works
fine, except I have a periodic buzzing in my transmit audio
that appears to be the CAT polling getting into the audio. If
I turn off N3FJP logging and/or N1MM contest log (which do
the CAT polling) no noise. The noise is faster with only N1MM
running, as N3FJP polls slower.

It is *not* a transmit RFI problem, no problems with RF
feedback when I transmit, just the "bzzt bzzt" of the polling
noise in the TX audio about 10 db or so down.

Joe at Microham gave me a number of suggestions that I have
mostly worked through: (1) Don't power the MK2R+ from the 12v
supply for the 850; (2) Don't connect the 12v/gnd wires on
the MK2R+ interface connector to the 12v supply (3) Tie the
MK2R into station single point ground via one of the ACC
connector screws.

I finished doing all those last night, really no change in
the noise. I have some ferrite beads coming in, that is my next step.

PA1M ran into this interfacing to a K3 (which is the next
radio I will interface to the MK2R+) and he describes some
DB9/DB25 grounding he had to do on the K3.

Anyone else ran into/solved this kind of problem?

Re: TR4W?

Bob Lanning <bob.lanning@...>
 

In 1997 I hosted the WRC-97 Argentine team in the San Francisco Bay
Area. That is where I saw TRLog - everywhere. So I have been a user
ever since - not that I do much contesting.

It is only a DOS program and I'm sure Larry had no intention of porting
it to Windows. Too many problems I suspect especially since Windows
came between the application programs and the interfaces frustrating the
timing we need for the various modes like FSK and CW.

You will notice the last TRLog manual has a 2004 date. TRLog has
remained unchanged since then. Still works fine on my ancient DOS only
HP OmniBook 600C (mini notebook). It even has a parallel port! TRLog
of course knows nothing of USB ports. Then came along Dimitriy UA4WLI.

Only about a year ago I discovered TR4W - very nice if you can get past
the shortage of documentation.

Some where after 2004 Dimitriy UA4WLI took on the task of porting TRLog
to windows. My guess is he did this on his own with approval but no
support from Larry Tyree. I really like the way it looks and works but
that is probably because I grew up on the TRLog. And to see it
supporting USB ports and Winkey is great.

Looking at the Russian manual I can not imagine the size of the task to
translate that thing. It sure would be nice to have an English version
and a more responsive support effort for us English speakers. TR4W has
frequent updates so it is actively supported. Then the MK2R issue can
be resolved. And I'm sure there will be more things we need.

I'd pay money for TR4W, Larry charges for TRLog. But I bet there is a
relationship restriction with Dimitriy not allowing him to charge for
the program. But it is worth some money.

Bob - W6OPO

Re: TR4W?

Yes, I've used Google, Bablefish and a couple other on-line
translation engines when necessary for support. Unfortunately
all of them seem to have significant "dictionary" issues - with
as much as 10-15% of a document not translated. I don't know
whether it's due to misspelling/vernacular in the document or
limitations in the dictionary but I suspect a significant part
of the problem is the former since e-mail seems to have a lower
"hit rate" than web pages or "finished" documents.

Re: USB Sleep condition - for Pete N4ZR

Pete and the group,

Well, I never had this issue with XP Pro + SP2. I was a little surprised when Win7 (32 bit here) kept re-enabling this setting.
It was only a chance conversation with my son, who has been trialling Win7 for many months, who told me where to find the root settings to turn them off properly.

That opens to show SETTING, click on the (blue writing) ENABLED and change
it to DISABLED

That will keep power to your USB ports all the time, and saves a lot of
grief!

Hope that helps!

I was typing up the first email when you responded with this one.

I think we've got it nailed. I'll give it a few hours and see what comes of it.

Hi again jon and the group...........

I have just been to the shack and written down the steps needed to keep
power to the USB ports.

So, here are the steps:
Click on Start
then Control Panel
Click "Hardware & Sounds"
then Power Options
then "Change power-saving settings"

Use HIGH PERFORMANCE, and click on CHANGE PLAN SETTINGS
Turn off display - NEVER!
Put computer to sleep - NEVER!
Then click on "Change advanced power settings"

In the tree, look for USB settings, and click on the + sign
It opens USB Selective suspend settings, click the + again
That opens to show SETTING, click on the (blue writing) ENABLED and change
it to DISABLED

That will keep power to your USB ports all the time, and saves a lot of
grief!

Hope that helps!

Re: Sleep condition

Hi Phil.

You know... before running out of the house this afternoon I took a look at that setting and was going to look into it when I got a chance to baby sit it for a bit. Since the mouse and keyboard are USB devices, it would make sense that I can't get the computer's attention.

Control Panel | Hardware and Sound | Power Options | Edit Plan Settings | Change Advanced Power Settings | USB Settings | Setting - Enable/Disable

I'd been out of the house for probably three hours and both monitors were asleep when I arrived home. I moved the mouse and they both came to life. I'm not sure of the time duration that motivates the USB ports to sleep but it's more than three hours before 'something' gets suspended. I work as a firefighter so when I leave for work it's for 24 hours at a time. When I come home from work and attempt to get the attention of the new computer, the lights are on but nobody's home.

I'll report back to you and Joe with my findings.


Thanks.

Hi Jon,

I think I know the answer to this one! I have just bought a new Win7 PC and
a MKII, and had similar problems.
The answer is to go into your POWER SETTINGS, select the option that uses
more power, and then advanced options.
You should get a tree like structure open in a window, so navigate down to
where it says USB Ports, and then open that branch, and choose DISABLED.
I found that my USB ports were going to sleep, so I was losing my wi-fi
connection, my USB external HDD, and also the MH router.

If you can't find it, drop me a personal email to pcooper (at) guernsey.net
and I will go into the shack, write down all the steps and email them back
to you.
I only discovered this by chance, after I had gone into the device manager
and unticked all the boxes against each USB port to say DO NOT LET WINDOWS
PUT THIS TO SLEEP.
Unticking those boxes doesn't appear to last, as I found out, and it was a
chance conversation with another Win7 user that lead me to the above action.

As I am still finding out things about Win7, I can't remember all the steps
involved, but drop me an email if you can't find the window I am on about.

Re: TR4W?

Bob Lanning <bob.lanning@...>
 

Just to be clear, TR4W does work with computers without LPT or Serial
interfaces. Mine doesn't have any - only several USB. TR4W does
support these USB interfaces.

The WinKeyer USB is connected to a plain-vanilla USB port. The MK-II is
connected to a USB port. The WinKeyer inside the MK-II is addressed by
a virtual port defined by the ROUTER.

I understand from your message that MK2R uses additional or different
protocol to manage the focus, which radio are we talking to at the time.
Yes clearly the TR4W author needs to get going on that but from what I'm
reading if it comes at all it will be a good wait.

I sure like the MK-II. I'm using both the CW and FSK modes.

Maybe the MK2R can be addressed the same way?
MK2R/MK2R+ use a command driven interface or the conventional LPT (CT/NA
compatible) interface. TR4W will apparently work with the LPT interface
but that does not do any good for those who have new computers
(including laptops) that lack a parallel port.

Intermediaries in Russia have been asking for TR2W to support microHAM
(SO2R) Protocol for two years but the author has yet to do anything
about it. microHAM Control Protocol has been implemented in N1MM
Logger, Win-Test and WriteLog for quite some time. All three of those
developers continue to improve their support for microHAM SO2R
controllers, fix bugs and add features but there has been no movement
from TR4W.

TR4W -

One more thing - watch the bottom right hand corner of the TR4W
window. When the keyer is defined and connected TR4W puts the WK2 v22
(WinKeyer
USB) or WK1 v10 (microKEYER II) there. Those "v" numbers are the
firmware releases in my two units. That display confirms TR4W
recognizes and is talking to the keyer.

Maybe the MK2R can be addressed the same way?

TR4W users -

Both WinKeyer USB (K1EL) and microKEYER II (microHAM) is supported by
TR4W.

In SETUP (menu item) setup WinKeyer including port number.
Keep in mind the microKEYER II has the Winkey chip/circuit in it and
looks like a stand alone WinKeyer USB. At least that is how it looks
from here.

I have both. The WinKeyer USB and is on COM 6 USB port. The
microKEYER II is on COM 7 (ROUTER's virtual port).

In both cases you are addressing and defining the WinKey as if it was
a stand alone unit.

So they have executed the ball that was in their court.

OK, I'll try to get an answer from them. The information flow in
Russian has been very slow and I thought I could find out
much quicker

on the microHAM side of the fence.
I have received word from Slovakia that the authors of TR4W were
provided access to the microHAM Control Protocol about 20 months ago.
The ball is (and has been) in their court.

then I would have had my answer, but since no one here knows that
answer, I'll see if I can find out from TR4W. I find that
TR Log for
DOS and TR4W are the absolute best CW SO2R packages but neither
support microHAM.
WinKey support is now in TR4W. I have been using N1MM for the past
couple of years and am happy with it, but TR4W is just a bit better
for me.

I'll let you know what I find out.
