Dear OM's,

I'm trying to setup the Micro-PC dongle to use it with MixW or HRD DM780's.

My initial thinking was to use Virtual Audio Cable from Eugene Muzychenko that should work fine.

And it does partially: fine Rx but no Tx and this is because something goes wrong on the setup and I don't know why.

Here's what I do:

I create 2 virtual cables in VAC
In the RRC setup I choose VAC1 as speaker and VAC2 as microphone

This causes the following error message related to VAC2:

Couldn't open sound device Virtual Cable 2
(and, well, a large message with a "GetVolumeControl failed" among other strange texts)

If I change the microphone to Microbit then it works fine but for sure I've got my Tx signal in the dongle microphone
and I don't want that. I don't want a physical cable doing a loop back to the computer soundcard. I rather would like
to have a VAC2 injecting that signal by software to the dongle.

On the other side, VAC1 works fine with superb reception results and no physical cables: for sure I could do also that
on the Tx side, couldn't I?

Has somebody tried and resolved this question?

Hi OM's,

My setup includes a TS-2000, and SteppIR 3L and a RC-2000 remote head at the control side.

I've installed this weekend the RC-2000 remote head and I was previously using the RRC on with Kenwood mode 4 and that was ok with the "general" mode of use of the SteppIR antenna: I mean that mode where the SteppIR controller changes, ifself (all alone) the frequency when you change the frequency of the transceiver.

But now, with the use of the remote head, this no longer works. And I think it should. Or at least I'm sure there's the way!

So I have now the RRC's working on TS-2000 mode, with the remote head working ok but I haven't succeed on having the SteppIR controller automaticaly changing the frequency when I change the frequency on the remote head.

I have connected the COM port of the TS-2000, through the "Y cable" to the controller and the PC. Here's probably my mistake. Do I had to connect that to the RRC COM2 port instead to the PC? But how? How I do say to the controller that he's to read the RRC COM2 port?

By another hand, I'd love to have that "alternative PC control" (that was my intention). So, someway, having the controller reading the frequency from the radio COM port and, also, having an alternative control of the radio through a classic PC COM port (maybe by a VNC session).

So, in a brief, how you the people owning a TS-2000 with a remote head and the pair of RRC does the SteppIR control?

Any advise will be highly appreciated!!

Hi OM's,

I've been the last two days puzzled here around a connection problem with my remote TS-2000. That's driving me crazy!

I've got a proper connection between both two RRC's with a "connected/transferring" SIP status.

I even have a complete connection to a ProSisTel rotor through the COM1 front connector. I mean I'm able to remote control a ProSisTel rotor at the radio site.

But, when trying to connect to TS-2000 through HRD, no way!! Always HRD refuses to make the connection.

I've got that fatal message: "TS-2000, COM5, 9600, Failed to read frequency".

I've tried different com ports, different baud rates, all the possible combinations of CTS, DTR, RTS...

Let me say I've been working ok the last months. I don't know how this has started. I can only say I upgraded to firmware 2.26 at both sides. I have revised all the data and magnitudes 100 times...

Today, I've been on the radio side and I've checked a direct HRD connection and it has worked.

I also have checked with other programs at the control side here: TRX, ARCS. No result!

Has somebody experienced something similar?
Any idea?
Maybe is there something wrong with the unit?? How could I check it!?

One more information: I also have a RRC-Micro PC-Client and I've got the same situation...

Tks & 73!

EA3GEO, Daniel
