Thanks Mitch, have you ever tried it or know someone who has?

General discussion / RRC Micro on cruise
« on: 2018-02-10, 01:13:26 »
Does anyone have any firsthand experience using the RRC Micro on a commercial cruise ship? The staff advised the latency was 700ms but I would prefer first hand real world reports from users

Tks

Final solution ....it would appear the only reason I did not have audio was that I did not adjust the volume slider control in the ARCP480 cat software. So to get back to an earlier post where I wanted to only run the RRC Micro because the rig is on a net frequency and never needs CAT control it can not be done you must have CAT control so you can adjust the volume to start the audio when using a TS480. One use of this setup will be for a senior who only wants to be on a net frequency ....and does not like computers we will have to retrain him hihi.  I have noticed several posts that do not seem to have resolutions posted, one post indicated the ARCP480 would not work with the RRC/TS480  I can confirm this is false it works fine ....one rumour down. Thanks to Mike and Mitch for their help it is a thankless job they do.

Some progress I am now able to connect to VE6WZ site, on his recommendation I adjusted the jitter size,delay and packet size I settled on 11, 9 and 40. So this proves I have a viable CPU/sound card combination. Sadly I have made adjustments on my own RRC micro client and have been rewarded with nothing but dead air.

PSS At this point in time I am working on only getting the RCC micro to work CAT is on the back burner a friend is going in to the hospital and I want to get him on HF even with out control of the rig.

I forgot to mention when I am connected to my RRC site status reports "Connection status faulty (see below) UDP CMD status error (0)"

I agree it would appear to be a set up problem in windows, I have tried it on 2 windows 10 cpu's 1 window 7  on two different networks. I have upgraded application firmware on both RRC to 2.91.  I have tried several audio devices( blue tooth headset etc)  I test the audio cards/ devices with windows as well as other audio sources and they work fine. Here is where it gets confusing when Steve VE6WZ sets me up as a contact in his RRC micro he has the same issue I have he can connect but no audio, he uses the same equipment to connect to his site everyday. ....it is a mystery.

I certainly agree setting up the RRC initially is the difficult part usually, I have gone thru the check list and believe I have it set up right I have confirmed the proper speed in the RRC com port as well as in
The ARCP480 and the TS480  Menu.  I am at quite a loss, I spoke to VE6WZ one city to the south he is using a very similar installation with no issues. I can connect with RRC Micro but there is no audio on a windows 10 and 7 CPU using the internal sound card and drivers or with a blue tooth or wifi audio headset (Steve suggested it as a possible solution )  I may take a bit of a break with the xmas season but I will be sure to report the final solution thanks for your help Mitch.

Still no joy here I have the RRC 1258 connected to the TS480 with a serial cable I can connect with RRC micro and have flashing LED's for RTP & RRC but no audio. When I try to connect with ARCP 480 I receive the message " Unknown device connected to COM2 or baud rate in this software does not match transceiver"  I am using ver 2.88 and a 1274B  with windows 7 I have checked that ports are open and checked the speeds in the radio and RRC's. The RRC's work fine with the control face of the TS480 at this QTH  so the system works fine in that sense. Again to confirm I DO NOT need a CPU at the remote site, simply connecting the RRC1258 to the TS480 via a serial cable on COM2 should allow CAT control of the radio with ARCP480.

Thanks for the check list Mitch that will be helpful  to many I did read the manual but my comprehension may have been lacking ( I suffer from a diagnosed learning disability and am old enough to remember 8" floppies hihi)  I try to stay abreast of technology but it might be winning. I will keep at it ...but back to the question I posed. Will my local rig control software in this case ARCP480 communicate and control the RRC1285MKII on the remote site with out a computer on that site? I am lead to believe this from the graphic on the RRC micro PC Client page. My  RRC Micro will be here Monday and I will be back at it in earnest.

Thanks Mitch I got the cable installed I am starting to work with Kenwoods ARCP480 for control but I am not able to connect, am I correct in assuming that this software will connect directly to the RRC 1258 MKII with no CPU on site ? I suspect I have an issue with port forwarding or some other such thing .....I realize this is not "kenwood "support but what info you can provide would be helpful.

Thanks

I have ordered the RRC MICRO but it is a week away and I will be visiting my remote site (300 KM trip one way tomorrow) I presently am using a TS480  and RRC1258MKII's which work great. Do I need to make changes at the remote site to allow use of the RRC MICRO?
