Using N1MM Rotor to Control and Monitor Muliple Rotators

Using the current version of N1MM Rotor

  1. Download, install, and run the free N1MM Rotor application

  2. Select N1MM Rotor's Tools:Setup Rotors menu command

  3. In N1MM Rotor's Setup Rotors window,

    1. specify the Rotor Type and Description of the rotator attached to each COM port being used to control a rotator

    2. it is not necessary to configure the N1MM logger setup dialog for Antennas unless you will also be using N1MM Rotor via N1MM logger

  4. On the Rotator Control tab of DXView's Configuration window,

    1. check the Enabled box in the upper-left corner

    2. set the Model selector to N1MM Current

    3. if you have Commander running and want DXView to automatically rotate the antenna for your transceiver's current band (as specified in step 3.a above), then in the N1MM Rotator Selection by Band panel

      1. check the Enable box

      2. specify the COM port used to control the rotator associated with each band, consistent with the configuration specified in step 3.a above
    4. if you want to use one rotator for all frequencies, uncheck the Enable box, and set the the all bands selector to the COM port used to control that rotator

Using N1MM Rotor version 12.11 or earlier

  1. Select N1MM Rotor's File:Setup Rotors menu command

  2. In N1MM Rotor's Setup Rotors window,

    1. set the Starting UDP Port # to 12040

    2. specify the Rotor Type and Description of the rotator attached to each COM port being used to control a rotator

    3. it is not necessary to configure the N1MM logger setup dialog for Antennas in >Config >Configure Ports, Telenet Address, Other >Antennas tab unless you will also be using N1MM Rotor via N1MM logger

  3. On the Rotator Control tab of DXView's Configuration window,

    1. check the Enabled box in the upper-left corner

    2. set the Model selector to N1MM V12.11

    3. if you have Commander running and want DXView to automatically rotate the antenna for your transceiver's current band (as specified in step 2.b above), then in the N1MM Rotator Selection by Band panel

      1. check the Enable box

      2. specify the COM port used to control the antenna associated with each band, consistent with the configuration specified in step 2.b above
    4. if you want to use one rotator for all frequencies, uncheck the Enable box and use COM16 to control the rotator
