Here is my checklist for TS-480 CAT:


CAT CHECKLIST
---------------------
IMPORTANT: In both scenarios, you MUST first install a standard serial cable between the TS-480 body and COM2 of the radio RRC!

USING A STANDARD SERIAL CABLE
============================
1) Change the CAT rate on the TS-480 to 4800 baud (menu 56). This rate keeps traffic over the internet to a minimum and faster is not necessary for CAT.

2) Change the COM2 serial settings of the radio-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1 and submit/apply changes.

3) Change the COM2 serial settings of the control-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1 and submit/apply changes.

4) Plug a serial cable in between your PC and the control-RRC COM2

5) Set your software to use the correct COM port on your PC at 4800-8-1-N

USING A USB CABLE
=================
1) Change the CAT rate on the TS-480 to 4800 baud (menu 56). This rate keeps traffic over the internet to a minimum and faster is not necessary for CAT.

2) Change the COM2 serial settings of the radio-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1 and submit/apply changes.

3) Install the Microbit Setup Manager if you already haven't. You don't need the problem for this, but this installs the correct drivers on your PC.

4) Change the COM2 serial settings of the control-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1, "use USB Com Port as COM2" to "Yes" and submit/apply changes.

5) Plug a USB cable between your PC and control-RRC. Make sure you do NOT do his before step 3 above!

6) Find out the correct port in your Windows Device Manager to use by looking for the "Microbit RRC Virtual COM Port (COM2)"

7) Set your software to use the this COM port on your PC at 4800-8-1-N.

Note that this has been posted several times, so you could  have found it before had you used the search function of this forum.

What kind of rig is it? Some rigs have a paddle jack and a straight key jack. The output of the RRC must
go to the straight key jack.

Otherwise, the settings for the I/O is in the manual pages I sent you before. The keyer settings would not
have any effect, since you are bypassing the keyer.

Jorge,

The K3 does not turn on using a CAT command. You must use the ACC2 connector on the back, which the
special cable is going to now for the RRC remote control. It would be possible with some wiring on a new ACC2
plug if you have the time, using the schematic in the manual for the DB15 plug and a remote relay of some type.

Jorge,

There are always methods to do that, but easiest would be for you to get a RRC Micro PC Client:

Then you can run N1MM on the control PC, use a remote paddle, run data modes, etc. and will not to have a
PC running at the radio site.

No, every change requires you to reboot the RRC. It is best to first disconnect before making a change, then save and reboot.

There is no real reason why it won't reconnect. Sounds like it is not on your network, so double check to make sure (also reboot
it again).

Dennis,

It should work just fine if wired correctly. Did you make sure that the I/O settings are set per the manual to make this function?
Is VOX turned on on the radio?

Otherwise, Mike or someone with more experience may be able to say what may be wrong.

Dennis,

Going to the RRC's paddle input will always use its keyer function. You want instead to use a straight-key/external keyer interface.

To do that, you need instead to connect to the RRC's I/O jack. Go to the manual, pages 94-95 and Appendix B (page 242).

It could be a number of things. You didn't provide enough details to know, because it is important to understand
if you are still within your radio's network or not. The SIP contact needs to be changed accordingly, plus the ports
need to be forwarded.

I suggest that you drop me a short mail to dj0qn (at) darc.de and I will send you my networking checklist that walks
you through the process of getting this working.

Yes, Jorge, RFI can always be a problem and it is always worth adding protection in any case.

I hope that you solve the problem.

Hi Jorge,

I understood from you that you changed to the new mini and it never worked at all.

Anyway, I am glad to hear that all is well. Sometimes it is good to reboot both routers and RRC'S from time to time. This clears buffers and other problems that creep up over time.

Hi Jorge,

OK, because that is usually what causes this type of problem after switching. Otherwise, they should work
identically using the old RRC.

I suggest contacting Elecraft support, since this is their product.

Did you change the new mini to the correct RS232 baud rate?

You have a network problem and it looks like the control SIP port may have a conflict.

Does the status page indicate an error when that occurs?

Allen,

I made it clear that my suggestions would not solve your problems, just reduce them a bit. To solve your problems, you must locate the source of your network problem like I wrote.

Did you move the control to a different location to determine which end has the problem?

Glad that you got it working, Jorge. I mistakenly assumed that your settings were set per the instructions
and that it was an interface problem. I will need to double-check from now on, thanks for the tip.
