Flex 6700, N1MM Logger+, Ctrl+Enter, or Ctrl+Fn

Bud TrenchBud Trench Member

I use the following feature of N1MM Logger+ in my current
SO2R setup, described in Paragraph 2.8.2.6.3 of the N1MM Logger+ online documentation:

“Ctrl+Enter, or Ctrl+Fn - Using these commands will send the corresponding message on the alternate radio; with the alternate radio defined as the radio that does not have RX focus.”

This a highly desirable feature for effective SO2R.

I am unable to get this feature to work consistently with my Flex 6700.  I only occasionally see the TX slice change and I always get the following information pop-ups: “SmartSDR The antenna may not be changed while transmitting” and "SmartSDR Transmit Slice has not been selected." 

The only way I can reliably switch from TX Slice A to B (and vice-versa) using N1MM+ is by using Ctrl+left or right arrow.

Related to the above, the Dueling CQ feature of N1MM Logger+, described in Paragraph 2.8.2.3 also exhibits similar behavior.

I am not sure if this is an issue with the Flex 6700 or N1MM Logger+.  I have also submitted a N1MM Logger+ bug report.

    I solved this issue.  The fix was to go the N1MM Logger+ Configurer and increase the PTT Delay for the Winkey.  I set it at 350 msec and all seems to be working now.

    I have tried to duplicate this issue. My Winkey PTT delay is at the default setting of 30ms. I can't duplicate the problem. I am able to send to the "other" radio anytime. It is almost instant. 

    I don't use Pause to switch focus but tried it and it worked all the time. I normally use CTRL Left and Right. 

    Maybe we should discuss this on the phone....

    I also was unable to duplicate the issue.  If Craig hasn't already helped you solve this on the phone, I would recommend going through the 6700 SO2R doc linked here: http://www.flexradio.com/downloads/so2r-mode-with-n1mm-for-the-flex-6700-how-to-guide-pdf/

    My understanding is the K9CT has been able to reproduce the problem.  Thank you.
