W7 USB-serial N1MM

Today Friday 13 ...I went to PC shops hoping to find  an FTDI  based USB -serial. It was again a beautiful summer day I was on my racing bike in Groningen where we have a number of  PC / Electronic shops  like Saturn Mediamarkt and more. I could only get a Sweex USB-serial but that one is using also Prolific chips and drivers I saw to late when i was home again no use to try that one it has  the same drivers.  There was a big crowd around the canal harbour  where the brand new  special "Eco"Sailing ship ECOLUTION  was lauched.  A project of  Prof Wubbo Ockels . Our own Groninger Space Shuttle astronaut (1985 Oktober)  brain of many innovative projects. Okay back to my subject.. This morning I tested real on  50MHz  after 2 logging's  suddenly the frequency ruler jumped into red and the input field was cleared again while I was trying to log a DL QSO ....    very sorry  but  the problem still exists ... So back to old  W2000 PC then... pity. FTDI  chips/drivers do


Serious troubles running N1 MM on my Lenovo W510 W7-pro. At first glance after install it looked fine but then when trying to log an exceptional good 50MHz opening to midwest USA at 20 June, the input fields where wiped out as quick as I entered them... I saw the frequency display running wild at the N1MM input form. I was running 400W trying to get the attention of a W6 I heard at 50105 in contact with south -EU !! but he tuned away....  :-((( W6 never seem to run CQ?  Is it forbidden by Arnold Schwarzenegger because of the bad economic situation?? I thought it was RFI on the CAT prolific USB-serial to the Lenovo but same problem happend again in receive only at 10116kHz . The frequency display and the N1MM tuning ruler was just wild displaying anything but the right QRG... So now I am back to the old trusty P3 with W2000   I could not use Virtual XP either because it would'nt recognise the USB-serial. It seems to be a driver issue  with the Prolific. I thought to hav
