Hello Mitch

this is very interesting!, will look for some Youtube video to see how it works

But, no time for this now, i am leaving tomorrow.

Is there any way to turn on the control radio from 192.168.0.169?

thanks,
Jorge

HELLO

I want to know if itīs possible to turn on remotely, maybe through local remoterig box, the radio that I use for control side, Elecraft K3/0 Mini

I will travel, but I donīt want to carry my control side equipements (K3/0 Mini, remoterig, paddles, Mic), so thinking that if I can turn on my K3/0 Miini, I can do CW with N1MM+, using TeamViewer to access my control site laptop.

I donīt want to keep the radios ON for a week, so I need to turn on it anyway

thanks!

Hello

I want to share a solution that seems is working for me.

I couldnt go to remote site to try some ferrites on cables, but I read a note from Elecraft about Audio quality on Radio Settings on remoterig configurations

When I had the problems, I have Audio quality = 8 - linear 16 bits 16 khz

I changed it, i used Audio quality = 5 but problem persist although last more time to apear.

Finally I am using  Audio quality = 3 Alaw 12 khz and is working very good, no more problem with lost connection with remoterig boxes

Hi Mitch

today I was playing on FT8 on 15 meters, and no problems with remoterig, K3/0 Mini WSJT-X

Now on 160 meters, with 300 watts, and again the problems.

So i am thinking maybe some RFI problem getting into radio remoterig AUX/MIC connector? That could be possible?

I will go to remote site and add some ferrites to this cable going to remoterig box

HELLO!!

I did a search about this problem.

I was using two K3/100 and never happened to me to see that the TERM does not go away and the remote K3 display does not show

10 days ago I got a K3/0 Mini with factory cable RRMINICBL and I started often to see that the TERM does not go away and the remote K3 display does not show

So the problem may be is a bad RRMINICBL  cable?

thanks!

Hello Mitch

I go directly to the laptop, once I had it working, I use the soundcard

finally I got it. Today I received a PDF file from Elecraft, Digital Operation with K3-0 Remote System v-01.pdf

I found that I had bad settings on my radio Remoterig

I had in IO SETTINGS

OUT0 mode   :   connect
OUT0 on/off   .   OFF

OUT1 mode   :   I/O
OUT0 on/off   .   OFF

OUT2 mode   :   keyer
OUT0 on/off   .   OFF

so I changed it to

OUT0 mode   :   connect
OUT0 on/off   .   OFF

OUT1 mode   :   baudot-RTTY/45
OUT0 on/off   .   OFF

OUT2 mode   :   keyer
OUT0 on/off   .   OFF

And now WSJT-X is working :-)

hello

I bought a K3/0 Mini, and I have a problem to run WSJT-X

I have a cable from K3/0 Mini SPEAKER to Laptop MIC and other cable from K3/0 Mini MIC to Laptop HEADPHONES

I can decode signals, but is impossible to have a transmittion. K3/0 Mini put on TX, but no bars on ALC meter

Any idea what I am missing?

thanks!

OUT0 MODE CONNECT
OUT1 MODE I/O

USB DTR as CW   COM0



RRC REMOTE

the problem is that my RRC control doesnīt PTT.

I need to PPT manually to have a good transmition on FT8

What I am missing? Maybe something on RRC settings?

thanks,

Mitch

i searched, but found other radios

I did a cable like this, RJ45 on one side, RCA on the other side. RJ45 #3 to RCAīs tip and RJ45 #6 to RCAīs ground.

I connect it between RCCīs AUX/MIX and soundcardīs LINE OUT

When I TX, I noticed that power vary constantly, from 4 watts to 400 watts, during the 15 seconds period.

Maybe cable is OK and I need to change something in RCC setup or K3 menu?

thanks,
