The radio always turns off when the SIP connection is cut. This occurs even if you lose
your internet connection, power or similar.

Hi Gary,

Like I wrote yesterday, none of the other things you wrote would have any effect on the output
audio. The jumpers only affect the microphone audio, power has nothing to do with it, assuming
the control panel is otherwise working.

If that particular cable is okay, then I would contact Microbit about a possible repair requirement.
Try another audio cable between the TS-480 and RRC in the meantime if you haven't.

You didn't give enough details to figure it out. However, I will make the following assumptions:
1) It worked before and all of a sudden stopped working
2) You didn't fiddle with any RRC settings
3) You are referring to the audio output and not microphone audio

If these assumptions are correct, then the only place the problem lies other than a defective RRC
would be the audio cable that goes between the radio RRC and the TS-480. Double check that cable
to make sure it is okay. Every device you listed before would have no effect on output audio.

I have run RemoteRig for years with no problem over DTAG and Fritzboxes. It works just fine.

Maybe you have a firewall problem. I have needed to turn off the Fritzbox firewall sometimes to make it work. I also find port forwards better than DMZ for security reasons.

If you need some help, just mail me (in Deutsch) direct at dj0qn (at)

I think Mike at Microbit will have to answer you on this one. It looks like a power supply problem,
but since you verified that it is not, then the RRC may be defective. I just tested one of my TS-480
RRC's without the control panel and USB cable plugged in and it works just fine.

Hi Luis,

Do you have the "real" serial cable installed between the TS-2000 CAT port and the RRC's COM2 port?

Have you tried to use a different power supply?

Hi Luis,

It looks like it should work, but if I recall, I think COM0 and COM2 baud rate settings should be the same and
match the CAT settings in the rig. It won't hurt to try.

Otherwise, not sure what it could be. I assume that you first made the connection over the RRC Micro before
starting ARCP-2000, otherwise it won't work.

Hi Chip,

Basically, the answer is "no". You would have to plug things in under normal circumstances.

The only way around it would be a major hassle, but doable: you would need to buy Y-cables
or switches for whatever it is you have hooked up to the RRC. A Y-cable for a paddle or speaker
should be no problem, but probably not for a microphone. There are some companies making
switches to toggle microphones between two rigs, so that would be your best bet there.

For CAT, you can use a trick by enabling COM1 to duplicate COM2 (mode-6 or 7) and pulling CAT
off the RRC locally (not that the radio RRC's COM1 pinout is "backwards", so look at the manual).
If you are already using COM1 for syncing another device, then you can try a serial Y-cable and see
if it works, or go to a solid solution like the N6TV S-Box:

Either way, it will not be easy, but you can get it done with some effort and expense.

If you have a decent router, then it will block it from working in the same network if you
use the DDNS address instead of the internal IP number. Use your internal IP number as
the SIP contact and it will work. Opening ports within the same network will have no effect.

Hi Jonas,

No, it turns on the TS-480 as it should when you connect. You likely have some parameters entered wrong
or the setup is not correct.

The most common mistake is that people often do not use CAT, but you absolutely MUST have CAT setup using
a straight, standard serial cable and COM2 of the RRC's first and then use COM2 in Nano for the connection.

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX

You can setup effectively an unlimited amount of radios with their own RRC's at a host site. The only limiting
factor would be the bandwidth (modern internet connections would not be an issue) and RF interference.

To make them work, all you need to do is to assign different unique sets of port numbers to each RRC and forward
these ports in the router to the correct internal IP number.

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX

Not correct, Iņigo,

The PC sound card has a microphone and speaker part that are completely separate. This is absolutely
identical to the sound card that was in the old dongle. There is no problem using this, assuming you
turn off Windows sounds. That is why they took out the sound card, because it isn't needed.

Hi Sam,

Glad to hear that you found the problem and it was indeed a K3 setting.

I retired back to the U.S. a couple of years ago after about 40 years away, but we go to Germany during the summer.

Good luck back in Japan!
