I am trying to run this with EESDR3 and get it going in RTTY. The HELP files are in Russian. I dont suppose anybody has an English translation. EESDR3 <>SDC<>5Contest :impossible: :impossible:

Only English translation and it is pretty vague that I know of- 5mcontest.qrz.ru/5MContest_Help_ENG.exe

also there is a user group: groups.google.com/g/5mcontest
Please do not email me and ask for help I no longer will be part of this, If I could delete /remove my profile I would do so.

The file that downloads is an EXE file so you may need to tell windows to KEEP as it will mostly likely try and block it

The EXE file once clicked on will install an English help file within the 5M contest program

Thanks for that Rick, it doesnt move me much further forward I'm afraid. Using SDC/TCI i can receive and decode the RTTY signals. If I run N1MM by using VAC etc I can TX also, but I cannot get the rtty to decode anything in 5M Contest, nor transmit anything. I have tried to google translate the russian help file sentence by sentence but that is very slow and hasnt helped up till now as I dont know what I'm translating, till after I have translated it, if that makes sense. I'll just keep plugging away... I got it working fine in CW earlier, but just nothing on RTTY.....

Hi Tom
Did you by any chance forget to set the decoding to RTTY45 in SDC? EESDR3 should work fine with 5m contest.

EDIT. I meant to say. 5m works OK. I just tried it. Activate the DIGI tab in SDC and launch "DIGI" window in 5m. Offset is 1600 with DIGU mode.

Email me directly and I will try to help.

Today after much trial and error I got 5M Contest running with SDC and my SunSDR2 DX. It seems to run OK but havent yet found a rtty signal to test it out. I may send a few hours in the Russian WW RTTY Contest this weekend.

In trying to get the software to run, MY MISTAKE was to try to use the same PORT number between EESDR3<>SDC/TCI<>5M Contest. Today I used a different PORT between SDC and 5M and now it is transmitting nicely, but I still have not heard an incoming RTTY signal to check out receive. I have set up and tested my MACROS. So now I am happy and cant wait to try it out for real. :so_happy: :so_happy: :so_happy:

Slight problem today in cqww rtty. I was operating on 40m when suddenly my screen flashed and the log showed i had lost over 200 contacts....Disappeard, a lot of S&P mults...... After some head scratching and a look at the gelp file i saw that each qso is stored immediatelybin a backup tect file and the cabrillo file. I took a chance and imported a copy of the xabrillo file which had all my missing Qs, but now my log has duplicate contacts and showsi have made twicevthe qsosvi have. The dxcc total seems ok as doesvthe zones and states, so i am hoping i can fix the cabrillo after the contest before submission. Any idea what might have caused my computer fart?

Fixed: Conflict with Omnirig. I then copied a working version from a fresh installation, after which everything works. Probably the problem was with an older installation of Omnirig. Bye Bye
