Problem with install 2Tone, RTTY, N1MM and FLEX6400

Hi everyone,

I'm installing RTTY with N1MM for my FLEX6400.
Here I use for the manual:
EZ Start Setup for RTTY With N1MM + for FLEX-6000 or Hicks, N5AC. URL: https: //edge.flexradio.com/www/uploads/20200818185018/Operating-RTTY-and-N1MM-for-the-FLEX-6000-How-to-Guide.pdf

I've installed all necessary hardware / software, N1MM +, MMTTY, 2Tone etc. in accordance with this manual.

The description of the 2Tone installation seems incomplete to me:
..... Double-click 2Tone to start the decoder ........

I get the error:

"2Tone does not work standalone, the with a logging program like N1MM + "

In itself that is understandable, but in the manual I don't find anything about starting N1MM or MMTTY ??

Does anyone know what's going wrong and maybe a clearer tutorial on this topic?

Thanks in advance for any response,
Cees, PA3CVI

    You can only use it with N1MM, so just open N1MM first and configure it and it will run fine.

    Hi Rich,

    yes, this was the information i was looking for.

    Everything is now working properly.

    I've searched a lot on the internet for manuals that my FLEX6400 can learn to communicate with WST-X, F8 Mode.

    To date I've not yet found a document that briefly and clearly explains the installation.

    I was forced to but started to write my own manual.

    Thanks again Rich. 😉

    Glad you got it working.

    For any digital mode on any radio, you need the following:

    RX Audio

    TX Audio

    PTT to put the radio into Transmit

    Optional is Radio CAT control (you can live without it)

    In this video, I show you how to connect FLDigi https://youtu.be/G9iDbcD-QgQ but the steps apply to each and every Digital program equally.

    You have to Select the RX Audio path (A windows sound card device in each case)

    You have to Select the TX Audio path (A windows sound card device in each case)

    How to get the radio into TX - there are several ways and the simplest way is to have the Digital program you are interested in sending a CAT command to the radio CAT port.

    Take it 1 step at a time. Start with the RX audio and get it working. Then, build from there.

    Ask questions if you get stuck.

    Mike, still looking for your comments about how you set up FLDIG in your setup- i.e. rigcat vs hamlib... see my post please.

    The Flex SDR is a fantastic 
    radio. What surprises me 
    the most is that all 
    communication takes place
    via just one USB connection, 
    including the audio control. 
    Thanks to your vid I was quickly 
    QRV in FT8 mode. You did a 
    great job thanks.
