Will writelog work as contest logger for SO2R and Flex

N1MM works well with Flex and in SO2R we know. However, it is lacking SO2R with Morserunner simulation. Dx Log has it but advanced SO2R has some bugs. I know a new release soon will adress this. I just saw that Writelog has implemented a new Morserunner with SO2R capabilities. But has anyone out there got Writelog to work satisfactory with Flexradio? And in SO2R mode?

    I can't answer your specific question, but Wayne, the author of Writelog has written specific additions for the Flex, so I wouldn't be surprised if he is working on this if it's not already done.

    Yes it will, In fact WL has native flex integration. I am not a big WL fan, but I know others that are using it regularly.

    I'm running WriteLog successfully with SDR-Bridge and Smart-SDR. However, I only have a Flex-6300 so cannot run SO2R.

    Thanks for input. But judging some recent posts here it seems that SO2R is not fully tested after all or  only SO1V?

    I don't have the specific information because it's been a while since I've tried the Flex 6700/Writelog/SO2R combo.

    Last contest season I switched to N1MM as it handles the Flex and SO2R very well.

    Writelog had issues (this is from what I recall) with not un-muting a slice when going back to that slice.  I had to use my mouse to un-mute the slice.

    I discussed this with Wayne, he was aware of the issue, however, he wasn't sure when he would get it resolved.

    I prefer Writelog because I've used it for several years and I understand how it works.

    N1MM is a very good program but it's been a new learning curve due to all of the cool features.

    Ok thanks for the input. Well I am really looking for a solution that both works in "simulation" mode as real life. Pitty N1MM does not support dual SO2R with Morserunner. I tried downloading the Writelog demo with the contest simulator but the learning curve might be too steep

    There is a recently updated WriteLog rig driver for the Flex-6000 series. Prior versions of WriteLog's driver do not work well with SmartSDR 2. http://writelog.com/category/flexradio-rig-driver

    regarding issues with the WriteLog demo (which fully supports the Flex, by the way) and the contest super simulator, try either an email to [email protected] or read or post to the WriteLog email reflector, which you can browse at http://lists.contesting.com/archives//html/WriteLog/

    Hi Wayne, 
    I have just tested it but cannot get any CW sidetone generated from it. I am experimenting with the Contest Simulator but I am "stuck" with no CW being generated. Pitty it seems to be a nice logger with simulator. 73 Kari SM0HRP

    Does the writelog support two keyboards

    I doubt it does. I have not seen it been mentioned when working with SO2R. I found this answer from Wayne at Writelog to same question in 2016 “It has come to my attention that N1MM logger now has a beta supporting input from two separate keyboards and I have been asked whether WriteLog will support that, too. My answer is: I'll consider it when someone uses that feature to even approach W2SC's results.”
