General discussion forum / K3 twin & audio noise
« on: 2020-01-21, 16:36:04 »
We have successfully set up a K3 Twin remote installation and CW is working well, as well as a remote interface to the SteppIR via RC-1216H.

Unfortunately we have a bad noise problem with SSB audio- it is much noisier than the modulated voice on xmit... And there seems to be a distinct hum in the receive audio as well.

We are using a Kenwood mic in lieu of the Elecraft unit; but, have tried JMP1 both open and closed (per the docs) to no discernible difference.  As there is a hum in the receive audio I don't think the mic setting is necessarily to blame.  Suspecting power supply issues both RRC's are connected to the switching power supplies powering the rigs so I don't think power is a problem either.  We are acquiring an Elecraft mic; but, I am not confident that will solve the problem.  All of our jumper settings have been double checked. All cabling is new and was supplied with the new RemoteRig gear. Strapping is via the K3 Twin PCB's.

I expect the solution will be a simple one; but, we are at a loss at what to try next.

Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome...

Configuration, Webswitch 1216H / SteppIR option not shown?

I am trying to set up an RC1216H with a SteppIR SDA-100 controller.
The IP configuration is set up fine on the RC1216H; but, when I navigate to the Advanced Menu, the SteppIR isn't an option I can select...
The only choices are:
 Prosistel D
 Green Heron RT-21
 Yaesu GS-32B
 AlfaSpid RAK

Further, the RC1216H indicates a software version of 4.50, which seems newer than the latest available to download, 4.27? This makes me hesitant to attempt to update the firmware.

Any thoughts greatly appreciated...

Configuration, RRC 1258 / K3 twin, remote power-on

I am setting up a new K3 twin setup and just getting started with both radios in the shack and on the same LAN before moving the control setup off site.  The control K3 seems to be controlling the remote rig fine, including powering off the remote rig via the control rig's power button.  What I can't seem to do is get the control radio to power the remote rig on... I thought based on what I had read, that that was supposed to work?
Any suggestions appreciated.
Thanks & 73,
