I am able to record & play back SSB QSO's but the volume is very low & I can't seem to be able to increase it. Does anyone know how to do that?
Secondly if I try & record CW, I am unable to play it back. Why?
In both cases I was using the normal "Record" red button not the IQ record button. Should I be using that?
If you left click with the mouse on the playback button, it will put the MB1 into TX. In this mode there is no control over the volume in the headphones/speaker, however it is transmitted.
Regarding it being a bit useless, I would recommend a direct email to EE asking for a feature enhancement. As an alternative meanwhile, CW QSOs can be recorded by a 3rd party application as described in the User Manual Addendum section on N1MM+/QSORecorder.
