We are planning to operate CQWW SSB with two Flex 6000 series radios. We a re looking to run Multi Op singe transmitter. One run radio and one pulling different band Mults only My question is that when setting up the Run Flex for SO2V with N1MM you actually set up Slice A as radio 1 and Slice b as Radio 2. Is N1MM going to look at and log as two radios thus making the overall station multi multi with three radios not the physical 2 We want to be multi single and I want to make sure I'm legal Mike

    I knew this was gonna happen.. I guess its a good problem for the flex team to have.  I will help navigate this with you as I think the CQ committee will need some guidance.

    This one may be more complicated and may require communication with the CQWW contest manager.  The question challenges not only flex innovations as well as limitations(1 flex per PC instance.. currently) by virtue of the definition of a "radio",   and in doing so it will push the envelope of the rules.   I am going to review the contest rules as pertains to CQWW then I will comment further but may need to contact the committee.  KR2Q is new to this so lets see how it goes.

    CQWW strictly enforces rules..

    I think if you have two physical radios you'll be within the rules. The rules states "transmitter" and not "radio." So wherever your transmit slice is is what matters. I don't think you can run 2 VFOs at the same time in N1MM with two radios. It's either one radio with two VFOs or two radios with 1 VFO each. Just dedicate one to the mult, one to the run and you should be fine.

    That is probably the case but I am looking into some other possibilities as well.  just want to make sure.  but yes computer 1 on N1MM instance 1 and RUN and Computer 2 and 1 N1MM instance 2 as mult may be ok.  He brought up SO2V also.. so just want to make sure we are all ok.  a careful review of the rules is never a bad thing.

    Ok.. here are the rules as far as multi-single goes

    Single Transmitter (MULTI-ONE): Only one transmitted signal on one band permitted during any 10-minute period (run transmitter). Exception: One — and only one — other transmitted signal (multiplier transmitter) may be used during any 10-minute period, if — and only if — it is on a different band from the run transmitter and the station worked is a new multiplier. The run and multiplier transmitters are governed by independent 10-minute rules. Ten-minute periods begin with the first QSO on a band. The log must indicate which transmitter (run or multiplier) made each QSO. The multiplier transmitter may not call CQ (solicit contacts).

    Source: http://www.cqww.com/rules.htm

    So  My interpretation

     Flex one -- run radio.  computer 1 N1MM instance 1 (SO2V or SO2R on one band is ok.  if you go to 2 bands 10 minute rule will apply.  No one says you cant have another slice open for band awareness however but tx there and you are stuck there for 10)  Flex 2 computer 2 N1MM instance 2 -- Mult radio  same deal watch that 10 minute rule.   You can network the two instances so the log is unified.

    Thats the way I see it.

    I have also sent an inquiry to the CQWW committee to confirm.

    Chris, in a SSDR setup, you can open a panadapter with no slice and it still allows you to monitor whether the band is open or not, does this affect anything?

    According to the rules as written it's ok in my interpretation. But that is why I have inquired with the contest manager

    Between SDRs and remote operators (and remote operators using Maestros (is that really remote?) its a real mess. Thanks for trying to figure this one out!

    You will need to run RCA-RCA cables between TXREQ and TX1 of each radio for lock-out and enable TX1 output on both radios.

    The real question to make sure I get answer to what I am asking is Run radio flex 6500. Slice a and slice b both on 20 meters. N1mm interface labels them as radio 1 and radio 2 S & P radio flex 670O slice a 40 meters looking for mults only What does that look like in the log is it within the guidelines on multi one we will be using networked logs.

    here is a sample of when I was running 2 instances SO2R on 15m.
