Second UKW Contest with N1MM
- Hello Gentlemen.
Just to inform you:
This weekend I participated in the VHF/UHF/SHF-contest with N1MM.
Setup same like in March with FT1000D, Transverter, homemade PA and 2 x 31 Elements.
I used my 500MHz laptop with WinXP Prof. connected with an USB interface to the FT1000D and also with a parallel port interface for CW.
First time I used N1MM also as a voice keyer !
So Mic-In connected with the laptop soundcard.
The VHF data base did great jobs again and I like the CAT control very very much:
1. Setting the CQ QRG with "F1".
2. "ALT&R" for auto CQ.
3. Using the sub VFO knob for "riding the band and looking for new ones.
4. If new one found, a quick "F10" and working the station.
5. Back to CQ with again "F10" and "F1".
A great experience and a very quick methode to get stations in the log very fast !
I would prefer this technic also maybe in other contests.
Just the problems with the arrow keys/bandmap and the FT1000D is still there !
Any solutions Tom ?
Or comming with version 4.0 ?
Otherwise the contest pprogramm worked again very fine and I like it more and more and more and more and more...etc. ! :-o
