N1MM Logger – Quick Start Guide for RTTY using MMTTY & 2Tone

This guide is for those you want to get up and running on RTTY quickly with N1MM Logger using both the MMTTY and 2Tone decoders. This guide is primarily for those who are not familiar with N1MM Logger but are already familiar with MMTTY. For those not familiar with MMTTY, please go to the Getting Started on RTTY tutorial first. It is important to get MMTTY working as a stand-alone program with your equipment (radio & interface), and operating RTTY fully, before attempting to use it with any other program. If you don’t have MMTTY working as a stand-alone program, it will not work with other programs such as N1MM Logger. Once you have MMTTY working with your radio and interface, come back here.

In this tutorial, the steps will be to download and install N1MM Logger, set up N1MM Configuration, set up the Digital Interface window for MMTTY and finally setting up 2Tone in a receive-only window. There is also a section on setting up RTTY messages. If you run AFSK, you can use 2Tone in the main Digital Interface, but for the sake of getting you familiar with N1MM Logger and how it works in RTTY mode, we will use MMTTY in the main Digital Interface window and 2Tone is a receive-only window.

Any program as detailed and feature-rich as N1MM Logger takes more than a few minutes to digest. Although this tutorial is called a Quick Start, it’s necessarily long to make sure of your success. All the information given here can be found in the N1MM Logger help document calledN1MMLogger.pdf. However, N1MMLogger.pdf, at the time this was written, was over 930 pages! When I first learned N1MM Logger, I read nearly the entire N1MMLogger.pdf file while setting it up the first time. It took me five days. The purpose of this tutorial is to get you up and running quickly, then you can go back and fully read N1MMLogger.pdf later if you wish. This should certainly save you a few days of work.
