I have a number of questions based on my experiences to date, especially today when I operated SO2R CW for the first time. I will raise those questions here as a series of postings, so that anyone with advice or insight can respond selectively.
The operating setup is identical for all questions.
· SmartSDR 2.2.8
· N1MM+ 1.0.7201.0
· Windows 8.1
· Headphones are plugged into the radio, not the Maestro, speakers are not used
· Paddles are plugged into the key jack on the radio and the Iambic setting set to Enabled and to B
Q3: Scenario: calling CQ on 20 meters on radio #2 (as defined by N1MM+) which is Slice B and tuning the 40 meter band on Slice A which is radio #1. When I hear a signal I want to work on radio #1 I use the appropriate keyboard strokes to send a CW message on radio #1. If I do this while radio #2 is NOT transmitting all is well. If I do this while radio #2 is still transmitting its preprogrammed N1MM+ CQ message, the radio #2 message is stopped (that’s what you want) and the radio #1 message begins (that’s also what you want) but there is a double or duplicate sidetone from radio #1 as that message is being sent. I hear the expected radio #1 sidetone at its desired volume along with a second, identical version of the sidetone which is delayed by just milliseconds from the first and, unfortunately, at a much higher volume. The delayed version of the sidetone continues only until the first space in the preprogrammed message and then disappears. If there is no space in the preprogrammed message the duplicate or second sidetone plays in its entirety. Yes, I know this is weird. Have I crossed into the twilight zone?Tim K9WX
