N1MM logger issues with the FT817

N1MM on the right VFO B…

Well I decided to use N1MM for the upcoming PA-beker contest event. So first thing of all the preparations I have to do before I’m ready is to connect the FT817 to N1MM. That is done by the famous ZLP modem I described earlier in my blog. The problem only is that my laptop assigned the modem to virtual COM port 11. First problem, N1MM only knows 8 COM port assignments. Luckely someone had encountered that problem before and to solve this you only have to follow the N1MM help document on this subject. Once it was solved I had the FT817 communicating with N1MM. Next problem is that N1MM only reads VFO A, VFO B shows 0,00 MHz even when I switch to VFO B this does not change. I asked for a solution in some internet forums and discussed the problem with PE2KM who has a FT817 as well. Kees tried the same set up with his radio and has exactly the same issue I have. Now I’m in contact with one of the programmers I think on the N1MMlogger yahoogroup to see if we can solve this problem as apparently Ham Radio DeLuxe does read both VFOs and I can switch between them.

HRD left VFO A, right switched to VFO B
