I am working on setting up NA for our Ccub for Field Day. We will be
operating a 3A this year, and we may move up to a 4A if there are enough
operators. We will be preparing NA to run a 4 computer loop network. The
laptops we are using only have one serial port.
I have set up the loop network cables as described in the manual, and
everything seems to be well, except..
When I am logging a contact on one of the computers (lets say #1, but you
could say #3 or #4 here also), computer #2, the problem computer, logs that
contact (You see #1's contact on the #2 logging window.) Then something is
very strange. Computer #2 switches to the band and mode that #1 was on
when it logged that contact. The other computers (#3 and #4) are fine ..
they log #1's contact and stay on the band and mode that they are set
to. The same thing happens to #2, when #3 or #4 log a contact, also. One
more little thing, if there is more than one contact showing in the logging
window of #2 when #1, #3 or #4 make a contact, the times of the contacts
showing in #2's loggin window change to: . . . . , and the callsigns and
exchanges of those contacts change to the last contact that was made.
We have tried re-installing NA on #2, we have switched around the cables,
and switched around #2's position in the network - the same thing happens
always. We have done enough testing to determine that the problem is the
Do you have any ideas on how to fix this strange problem?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
If you need more information about the problem, just ask!
