General discussion forum / Radio auto connect?
« on: 2016-09-09, 01:58:08 »
Hello

Need a little help please, I leave my radios on in the shack so I can listen as I am about the house and unfortunately the internet connection in my UK shack is a little flaky so I often find the radio head unit has shut off and I have to manually turn the power back onto the radio, is there a setting that if it senses a break in connection it will automatically reconnect again rather than just turning off?   Hope someone can help

Thank you

General discussion forum / Kenwood V71 not Txing
« on: 2014-11-15, 18:10:45 »
Hi All

Got an issue with my RR setup, I recently moved QTH in England and after several days of being off air I got everything setup back up but now my Kenwood TM- V71 is not TXing. I was supplied a new router so had to port forward again but now when I key the mic the noise silences but it doesn't PTT at either end, can recieve just fine and all fuctions work perfect just no TX.  Checked everything over but  can't see what would cause an issue like this, can only think its maybe a setting somewhere in the router or RR.

Has anyone had any issues like this before?  I also own a IC7100 thats used via RR and thats working as normal.

Thank you

Hi All

Need a little help please, thanks to a fellow Ham at my remote station we installed a 2nd RR for me today with a Kenwood V71 dual bander.    I have on my original RR used the IO port to switch a coax relay which works great but I am having issues getting the I/O to work to switch another relay I am trying to use.   I have the I/O ports set as Out0 and using OUT Mode as I/O and IN0 on the Control to use with a switch, but each time I make the connection between pin 4 and ground I get a loud beeping coming from the speakers.   Can't see what I am doing wrong that the switch wouldn't work as I have copied it from my first RR setup which is working great.

Hope someone can please help

Thank you

General discussion forum / 2nd RR + Kenwood D710
« on: 2014-03-01, 03:41:37 »
Hello All

Wanted to put this out there and see if anyone had any issues with the following setup, I currently run a RR with an Icom 7100 but wanted to add a Kenwood D710 to my Remote Shack too so I will be purchasing a 2nd set of 1258's to run a d710.    Has anyone here run a d710 and had good results?  Does it still have dual receive and would a 2nd RR be any issue at all?

Thank you

General discussion forum / IC-7100 locks up on HF
« on: 2014-02-24, 07:25:15 »
Hello All

Need a little help please, I have recently installed a IC-7100 and have had some issues on HF.  Long story short if I TX on HF on full power the radio either locks up or shuts off.  Has anyone had any issues like this before please?   It's not so bad on low power but don't want to run a QRP station.   

I used to have similar issues on my 706 RR setup the display use to go all strange.

Hope someone can help please

Thank you

Hello All

A few months ago whilst at my remote QTH in England I setup a coax relay using the IO Settings (I/O - Out 0 mode on/off0) so using a reed relay I am able to switch the coax relay on/off from the RR GUI.  I have been trying since to make a switch from the IO port at the control end but without any joy.    Can anyone please explain to me what I need to do to be able to have a switch to change the Out0 from on to off?    Do I need a circuit or can I use the wires from the control IO port.   The relay switches fine using the on off button via GUI but a switch in the shack would be great.

Thank you

Hi All

Thanks to Mike (again) he pointed me in the direction of using a coax relay to switch between two VHF antennas I have (beam and vert) and I now have a 12v coax relay.   

I could use an IP Power switch but heard that you could use the I/O port on the RR Radio side to power and switch it!  Is this possible for me to do and has anyone done it that might be able to point me in the right direction please?  I have searched here and found some information but it was a little too advanced for what I am looking to do.

Appricate any help

Thanks

Configuration, RRC 1258 / Remote Rig + ERC + Com1?
« on: 2013-05-21, 23:29:31 »
Hello

Hope some of you Remote Rig owners might be able to help me please. I am
looking to use the ERC (Easy Rotator Controller) with my RR setup but I have used Com2 with a Cat
interface for IC706mk2G.

Speaking to Mike he said that com1 is the same as com2 only the pin config is different from com2 in the radio box, it's a female dsub and pin 2 and 3 are shifted compared to com2.

Has anyone managed to setup Com1 with the ERC?


Thank you

General discussion forum / Choppy Audio from RR
« on: 2013-04-23, 18:07:26 »
Hello All

Hope someone can please give me a little advice,  over the last week or two I have noticed choppy audio coming from my remoterig, the best way to describe it is on a clear frequency its like the noise level is breaking in and out of the squelch even though the squelch is turned off.   When I talk to people it makes there audio choppy too.   Is this a setting I need to adjust, the connection is good on both units and the internet connection is 50/15meg on one side and 100/10 on the other.   Tried reboots on both ends but still no change.

Hope someone can please help, thank you.

Hi All

Has anyone had a problem with there 706mk2g like the attached image?  Suddenly today I get garbled display because I noticed it won't transmit on full power on 10mtrs now.   If I knock it back to power setting 6 then it transmits but otherwise it won't.    Any ideas?   Does the SWR automaticly knock off TX if its high?

Thanks

Stu

Hi All

Hit a roadblock on my new 1258's that arrived yesterday, going through the manual step by step and done the straps and jumpers but I am stuck at the Microbit manager setup stage,  first I tried to install the software and it would only load if I said install program only as the virtual com ports version kept throwing up a driver install issue which I tried to instal but it kept going in loops and the message kept appearing and wouldn't let me finish the install, so I choose program only.

Now I plug the units in via USB and the computer (Win7) isn't seeing any attachements via USB...nothing at all.   The software just says Unknown Discconnected and it doesn't change.  Same for both units.  Tried two PC's too inc a laptop.

Can someone please help me here and tell me what I am doing wrong so far?

Thank you

General discussion forum / What Radio?
« on: 2012-11-03, 05:00:19 »
Hi Guys, M1EMB Stuart here, need a little help please, I would like to purchase a radio to go with the RemoteRigs that I also plan to buy shortly but I am not sure what radio to pick up.

The radio needs to have HF/2/70 and not break the bank , I was looking at a IC-706MRK2g but not many around I could find. 

Can anyone please offer any advice on a good radio with the above coverage.

Thank you

Stuart@M1emb.com
