1. Minimum Hardware Requirements
N1MM Logger+ incorporates the latest multi-threading technology, and will take full advantage of multi-core CPUs. It's difficult to set an absolute minimum configuration that will work under all circumstances. A single-core 1.6 GHz processor is probably the minimum required, but the CPU requirements depend quite heavily on which program options, modes, etc. are selected, so this may not be adequate depending on how you use the program. The program itself does not require a large amount of memory, but the more memory you have, the more smoothly Windows multitasking works. Memory is especially important when the CPU is a single core.
The recommended minimum graphical resolution is 1024 by 768 (SVGA), or 1366 x 768 (720P) for wide-screen monitors, with many hams running higher resolutions and dual screens. At vertical resolutions of less than 768 pixels, like many netbooks, several of the larger windows will not fit entirely on the screen.
Radio control can be done through serial ports or through a USB-to-serial adapter. CW keying, FSK RTTY and PTT can be done through serial or parallel ports, through a USB-to-serial adapter, or through K1EL's Winkeyer (an excellent solution which offloads CW processing entirely). For PTT with MMTTY, an extra serial port is needed. For AFSK, PSK31 and other modes requiring audio interfacing, the same methods described for phone interfacing can be applied.
SO2R "boxes" may be controlled through a hardware LPT port under 32-bit operating systems or 64-bit operating systems. Alternatively, the MicroHam USB SO2R Control Protocol and the K1XM Open Two Radio Support Protocol are both supported, for use with devices that accommodate them.
USB-to-serial converters and USB interface devices are supported through virtual serial ports provided by their associated driver software. USB-to-LPT converters cannot be used for either SO2R control or CW/PTT functions, except for the PIEXX SO2RXLAT (which is specifically designed for this purpose).
For more information see the Interfacing section.
