Is there something else that needs to be turned on? I'm not seeing any cached data in my recordings.

QO-100 - SDR Console + Log4OM

Patrick
 

Hello!

My goal is to log QO-100 contacts with Log4OM. I do both TX and RX with an Adalm Pluto.
I'm wondering if it is possible to link the frequency and mode from SDR Console to Log4OM with the help of K5FR's VSP Manager and Omnirig?
I tried following steps:

- installed a virtual com port pair with VSP Manager (COM 12 and COM 13)
- Omnirig settings: Rig type: TS-2000, COM 12, 57600, 8, none, 1, low, low, 100ms, 100ms
- SDR Console: In program options: checked COM 13 in CAT (Serial Port) port selection settings

Unfortunately no success. Log4OM seems to start the CAT interface but shows a completely different frequency (for example 1.899.758.983 instead of 10.489.800.825). When clicking on another frequency in the
SDR Console waterfall window the frequency suddenly jumps from 10GHz to the 1.8GHz range.

Is there anyone who got it running with this setup?

Thanks in advance for your replies,

73 de OE8ACT - Patrick


Re: SDR Console V 3.1 rds decoder vs RDS Spy

Yes,

It's very close, both are performing at or indeed beyond the theoretical decoding limits. I'm spending this summer on 4m so the 8 ele Yagi for Band II is down, but for next summer it'll be back up. I know I could grab just a little extra performance with SDR Console but it really would be just a little.

You may have heard something and want to start recording it. With the cache you don't miss the beginning of the transmission, you also get the previous 10s / 20s / ... of data.

Under:
Program Options > Recording> Data Recorder

There is a selectable time interval for a "data cache", which adds cached data to the start of a recording.

What is the purpose of this?

Thanks Dennis.

 

I found the rogue port, it was COM44 which was the device that is now COM6. The problem with N1MM+ is now resolved.

Note sure if you have tried this yet or not. But thought I would suggest it.

You can use device manager to view the COM ports on the system. BUT it may not be telling you the whole story unless it tell it too. There could be "hidden" devices you cannot see. You would think it is as simple as clicking on the "View" menu in device manage and selecting the "Show hidden devices" option. But this does not always show all hidden devices. So try this:

1. Open a DOS window as administrator
2. Enter set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
3. Enter start devmgmt.msc

The device manager will open. But even though you entered the command to show all hidden devices in the DOS window the hidden device will not be shown until you go back to the "View" menu and select "Show hidden devices". This will show ALL hidden devices now.

Now if you see some old ports that do not belong on the system you can delete them.

I added some screen capture to help.
Device manager 1 & 2 are befog using the "set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1" option
Device manager 3 & 4 are after using it.

Which strongly suggests they are enumerating serial ports improperly.

Re: Com port pickle

Yes that is COM18, I could not find any duplicate ports, but with the advice on here I have some tools to play with. The SDRC tool is very clear, I am at work today then 3 weeks off 😊

Without looking too hard I see a duplicate COM1 which is most odd as this is usually the legacy port on the motherboard.

 

I would correctly deinstall all virtual serial port software, check available ports with N1MM, then slowly add them back using only one program, my favourite is com0com. Alternatively check all the software and look at the definitions.

 

There's at least one program which needs some TLC so that you don't cause this sort of situation.

 

Try this display in Console, good 'cos it shows the manufacturer (written correctly):

 

 

Good luck!

Hello Max, I use VPSE already, the full fat 64-bit licensed version and have used it for 5 years. That does not help me, it is a virtual com port emulator. The problem I have is finding out what is upsetting N1MM+ contest program which insists that I have duplicate com ports.

 

Too much DX on 6 and 2m to sort this out yesterday but I did download device remover. Meanwhile I just switch off the FDM-DUO and the warning disappears. Windows thinks that there is duplicate port but device manager does not find it.
