Configuration, RRC 1258 / FT857 remote power up
« on: 2018-03-21, 23:00:05 »
Is it possible to get in the web interface a power button for connecting an FT857 to the radio end (i.e. in parallel with the physical button on the control head).

The reason being is my rig control head runs remotely at home running WSPR or other digital modes. Whenever my internet connection drops, the connection is broken and I have to reconnect the control head again.

It would be really handy to be able to do this remotely too.

General discussion forum / Icom IC-910H remote rig?

Has anyone used the remote rig for the IC-910H? How did it work, I assume like any other CI-V Icom.

I'm setting up a remote station on a high mountain, and I only want 2m/70cm, although 23cm would be a bonus. The 910 suits because they already have a decent amount of power 100W on 2/75W on 70cm, and are easily GPS lockable.

Open to other suggestions though.

General discussion / Connecting to FT-857 via RRCMicro

Just installed the trial version of the RRC Micro software to try out with ham radio deluxe for control.

I use a FT-857D with remote control head normally, but I want to be able to connect from work and control.

I've managed to connect, RTP goes green, but the indicator bar doesn't show anything, so no audio buffering. Not sure what I am doing wrong there, and can't find troubleshooting steps on this.

I try to open up Ham Radio deluxe, and select COM3 (what I selected in the RRC micro PC com port setting) and I only get three baud rates options, one is not 64000 which is my COM0.

Do I need to use a separate cable from serial of the RemoteRig to the radio? What a pain, that's a 200km round trip drive, and I don't have one of those cables. I thought it was possible through the front TTL connector?

Hi all,
Had a couple of issues with my RRC connecting a FT-857.

I have a TP-Link TL-WR802 setup in client mode (connected to a WiFi access point - a Unifi AC Lite AP). I get internet fine through it to my PC. I then connect this to the RRC. Press the button to turn it on. It appears to try to turn on and makes the 857 beep, but fails to start. It does this three times then stops.

The RRC works fine when plugged into my local network. Has anyone had any similar issues? I don't think the AP has any SIP related restrictions, its only bridging my LAN to WiFi.

I also tried connected via my iPhone hotspot. This worked, however I noticed dropped audio frames. Probably my 4G connection at the time?
