Using the latest version of N1MM+, I don't see any issues. I don't
recall any issues of my own in the past with N1MM or N1MM+ either.
A proper configuration would be like this:
1. Select File --> New Log in Database
a. Set "Log Type" = QSOPARTY
b. Set "State for Log Type QSOPARTY" to: OH
c. Set "Sent Exchange" to: your four-letter county abbrev (eg: JEFF)
d. Set "Operators" to the callsign in use for the content (eg: AA8IA)
I do notice that my N1MM+ plus defaults to tossing my state "OH" in as
the Sent Exchange by default. It is actually pulling that default
value from the ARRL Section field under Config--> Change Your Station
Data, which is where you enter in your general station information when
you initially set up N1MM+. Obviously that does no good in this
contest for Ohio stations since we need to be sending our four-character
NOTE: In my case, under Config --> Change your Station Data, there are
actually two places where OH is specified, once under State and once
under ARRL Section. But I have verified that N1MM is pulling the
default OH value for the Sent Exchange from the ARRL Section field in
Config --> Change your Station Data. N1MM+ will not want to modify
that section. Instead they want to simply set the "Sent Exchange" as
described in item C above.
So, in the case of Ohio stations operating in the OHQP and using
N1MM(+), make sure that item C above is set correctly to your
four-character county abbreviation.
When I generate the Cabrillo file (via File--> Generate Cabrillo), my
generated log looks something like this:
CLUB: Mad River Radio Club
NAME: Mike Tindor
ADDRESS: 56 Lookout Dr
CREATED-BY: N1MM Logger+ 1.0.5103.0
QSO: 14200 PH 2015-08-19 1414 AA8IA 59 JEFF AB1CD 59
Notice it does have the correct county in there. So people who have set
up the log for OHQP should go to File --> Open Log in Database, select
the logfile for the current OHQP that they are running, and make sure
that A, B, C and D as described above are set properly.
I do not not any field after the state I worked [VT in the example
above], but there does seem to be about 9 characters of whitespace after
the VT in the log, if that matters.
