Thread: sweepstakes exchange practice

It sure would be great to practice copying sweepstakes exchanges.

You could build an excellent drill based on your log and the "Convert text to CW" tool on this website.

True, but it would be better if it was in the same format as the callsign training - one exchange at a time and the next one plays after hitting enter on the last.

With a database program, it is possible to create a structured practice drill, and script in the parameters that simulate N1MM, Morse Runner or even RufzXP where the speed in WPM of the next call is either faster, slower or a constant rate depending on whether you got the last one right. I wouldn't be surprised if someone hasn't done this already.

This isn't specifically a sweepstakes exchange, but it's close:


The relevant portion of that link:

These N1MM+ instructions provided by Andy KU7T dated 5 December 2014 and updated 16 December 2015:

I am getting quite a few requests for the instructions on how to run MorseRunner with N1MM Logger+. Here is the info:

The AHK script for N1MM Plus is already installed in your user folder under "SupportFilesMorseRunner-N1MMLPlus.ahk". There is no need to download it from anywhere. (NOTE: The original script written by K7OG only works for N1MM Classic).

Install MorseRunner from VE3NEA: http://www.dxatlas.com/morserunner/
Install AHK from http://www.autohotkey.com/
Start a new contest in N1MM Logger+ as WPX CW
Turn off Rig control in N1MM Logger+ (an easy way to do this is to turn off the radio, or you can configure the radio port in the Configurer to None)
Set ESM and Run mode
Launch MorseRunner
Launch AutoHotKey script either by:
browsing to it in Windows explorer, right-clicking and using "Run as Administrator"; or
configuring N1MM+ to launch the script on start (Configurer, Function Keys tab, AutoHotKey file, fill in the file name) and then restarting N1MM+
In MorseRunner, start a WPX competition by clicking Run > WPX competition
You should now hear band noise
Put entry focus on N1MM EntryWindow and hit F1
Make some Qs...
