i'm getting confused flipping back and forth between N1MM Interfacing Basics, and SmartSDR Cat set up docs...RTS, DTR, etc...

Can somebody dumb it down for me?

create additional ports with SmartSDR CAT? which kind? how many?

maybe, later, i'll tackle the other modes, as needed.

Dan,
Then are probably several ways to set it N1MM with SSDR this is the way I have it set up..
See screen shots below
Please note that I have created additional com ports that are not needed by N1MM and that You must impliment CW via a seperate hardware comort..

Dan,
I guess that I left out the part that you were acsking about -- CW.. The cuurent versions of SSDR/SSDR CAT do nbot provide a means or running CW except by external hardwaqre..
I happen to use WINKEY USB Lite with N1MM..
Here is an additonal N1MM screen shot.. You could also CW via RTS on a hardware com port.

Dan,
Here is a N1MM screen shot with CW on DTR of COM4.. In both cases I use the CW input thru the ACC connector.

I just posted a document that describes how I set up N1MM at the K5FRS club station. It might be helpful.

Jim, your link in the beginning of this conversation (http://support.flex-radio.com/Downloa...seems to no longer be valid.  Can you supply a new link to the setup at K5FRS?

Hi Dan,
I have a document that describes the hardware interface needed if you want to key the rig via a PC serial port. It lists the parts, schematics, pictures etc.    In addition to the connectors it requires a transistor and resistor.  

I have the document posted elsewhere but can point you to it if you would like to review it.  Just drop me an email.  By the way the interface will also allow you to connect a straight key to the line from the  ACCESSORY jack.  You can use your paddle on the front key jack without having to disengage the "iambic" button when switching between the two keys.
