General discussion / Do I need the 1274B?
« on: 2018-02-07, 20:52:20 »
First post--but I've been a lurker for a while.  I'm operating my TS-480 remotely at the ranch using the RRC-1258's, with the 480 front panel here at home connected to the control box.  I'm very satisfied with it.  However, when I'm away from home, I want to be able to operate using a laptop running ARCP-480 (or HRD).  I have the serial cable hooked up on Com2 at the remote, but I'm unable to turn on the radio from the software.  I'm reduced to having my wife push the power button on the 480 to make contact with the system, and I need a better way. If I get a 1274B Micro PC Client, will I be able to power up the radio when away from the home QTH?  Or, should I invest in a remote RS232 switch and connect the radio com port to it?
Thanks for any help.
