Record You Contest QSO's

At one time N1MM had an option to allow you to record every QSO in the background.  Very useful when band conditions were poor and you were not sure of a call letter or report.  You could go back and repolay it and confirm what you thought you had copied.  Well the feature dissappeared fron the old N1MM a few years back and I never did go looking for it to see what.  Turns out there were some issues with it and the guys removed the function.  I have since discovered that Vasiliy, K3IT has written a program which puts this functionality back int N1mm and makes it possible to record and replay your contest qso’s.

The program is called Qsorecorder and you will find it here http://hamradiomap.com/qsorder/

Extract the zip file and copy all the foiles to the following location:  E.g.  C:\Users\yourprofilename\Documents\N1MM Logger+\QsoRecording
Copy the qsorecording program there.  In N1MM fill in the configurer at the the tap: files, recording qso

In the N1MM Logger.ini file you have to add the following:

[ExternalBroadcast]
BroadcastContactAddr=127.0.0.1:12060
IsBroadcastContact=True

The .ini file is located in C:\Users\yourprofilename\Documents\N1MM Logger+

Start the Qsorecorder program. Make a contact in N1mm. Wait a few seconds and you will see at the qso recording program the call of the contact and the mp3 file.

To replay the contact go to N1MM, your log window, click with the right mouse on the qso and you will see play contact.

There are lots of options which can be set as shown below

I created a .bat file to run qsorder.exe and used the command  qsorder.exe -i 2  which specifies which sound card to record from as I use a microKEYER II and record from the line out from it.
