High power single operator
Spend a lot of time and work for just 95 QSO's
No more then 4 hours of sleep ..
A good test to see if I still could survive that
Saturday afternoon I set up a Beverage to west 300m
Setting up the Beverage left me with muscle strain lasting until today after jumping over a ditch.But a good experience at least now I have a good working
Beverage to West.
fb quiet reception clear W signals on the Beverage disappeared when RX on the TX antenna
I tried to record collection of the stronger signals
VY2ZM 589 on the Beverage..K3ZM 579 aswel and some other major signals
But the recording failed
Audio handeling never has been as difficult as in W7
The internal mike can not be disabled
the mixer control is fuzzy
But propagation broke down later I had 50 QSO aded 47 only
could not reach 100Q a few W without EU rx antenna heard calling CQ but could not hear EU callers
Like I was hearing disabled the first morning..
Should have had that Beverage from the start.
N0NI W0SD first night
Sunday the already poor propagation was way down only East part of W/V
2 points per QSO is not so generous for 160m TA contacts in this poor propagation
The days one could hear W6 /7 is history on top band ( and 10m aswel)
The weekend started with software issues.
2 of them are solved meanwhile.
1.TQSL simply transferred between PC using backup/ restore
2.Bandlimits K3 program worked after I found the hidden installed programm
3.N1MM+ not solved no sign of N1MM team I seem to be stand alone in this again
problem@N1MM.com does not answer or confirm the problem I am not sure if the N1MM team did receive it.
I switched to a faster Laptop for the logger N1MM+ / clasic
that solved the problem with the T/R delays
3. N1MM+ runtime error in general logging
not possible to log anymore. the error report pops up
if automatic score reporting is checked the runtime error comes exact every 5minutes
that is the time for the upload and re-scoring
re-scoring generates the overflow error in my general log with all contacts
N1MM clasic does not have the bug
switched back to N1MM classic
N1MM+ merging ADIF files not possible timestamp "error"
not possible to import a single ADIF record to an excisting log with contacts
N1MM clasic is okay for that it ignores double records
did send to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. W10 in Virtual BOX is expired
need to install a new version
I do not want to upgrade W7 it is my company laptop
I did start the "media creator" to download W10 ISO
it was finished but the ISO is not findable
That is typical software first hours downloading and then nothing zipp
