General discussion forum / Noise on transmit
« on: 2018-02-19, 14:40:45 »
We are experiencing noise on transmissions when nothing is being said.  In other words, while transmitting and you stop talking the background noise gets louder.  When a word is spoken the noise floor immediately goes back to normal until you stop talking again.  It reminds me of AVC or AGC where a circuit is adjusting the level of audio.

The configuration is two 1258 units purchased several years ago as a pair, serial # 4262 and 4032 .  The following info is the same in both original units:
PID   4
Version   5
HW   6
Software   2.91
Bootloader   1.9
Compiler   4.6.2
Build   Jun 16 2016 07:13:13

A standard non-amplified microphone is used.

When I use my newer 1258 control head the problem does not happen.  Serial # 9964.  The difference between my control head and the older one is that mine is Version 7, HW 8.
PID   4
Version   7
HW   8
Software   2.91
Bootloader   1.10
Compiler   4.6.2
Build   Jun 16 2016 07:13:13

Do you have any idea why this is happening? As I recall, it happened in previous software builds.

General / New phone, how do I transfer license?
« on: 2018-02-01, 23:44:10 »
Hello,

I purchased a new phone and loaded the Nano App to the new phone.  How do I get it activated for my paid account from the old phone?

Thanks, Joe, K1ike

I upgraded to Windows 10 and now I am trying to setup virtual comports using the Microbit Setup Manager version 1.31.  I am getting an error "Invalid Virtual Serial Port, please select another" message when the program first opens up.  Looking at the Serial Port setup, they are all showing as not installed.  If I install a virtual serial port it tells me that the serial port is created, but if I Refresh or try to use it the com port goes away and says not installed.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Joe, K1ike

Ver 2.90 says "New feature: Itís now possible to change setup profile in a control RRC using the CW pot."

Any documentation on how this works?

I've noticed that this problem has been getting worse as times goes by.  I am trying to access the web server port and it seems to "hang up" as the page is loading.  Sometimes I only get the left hand column, sometimes nothing happens.  This is happening on 4 RRC1258 units, both Control and Radio units, on local LAN IP and remote IP.  Occasionally the F5 key will reload the page and clear the problem.  All are running firmware V2.87

Any ideas?  Anyone having the same problem?  I saw some posts about this last year and wonder if it is still happening to people.

I like the Nano app, but I am limited to receive only because I am not able to tune the antenna.  We badly need the ability to activate the antenna tuner.

General / KENWOOD NANO 1.3.10 UPDATE
« on: 2016-01-26, 16:12:01 »
I saw on my phone that I received a RemoteRig update for the Nano app.  Now when I try to connect to the remote using the Nano app I get the BUSY indication on the app but it disconnects the connection that is in progress.

I'm working on my third RRC, this one is an Elecraft K-3.

I'm accessing the K-3 using my Elecraft Nano App on my Android phone.  The K-3 will not turn on when I connect to it over my local LAN IP address.  If I first turn on the K-3, I can connect to it and everything seems to work fine.  When I disconnect the K-3 powers off.  If I try to reconnect the K-3 will not power up, but the Nano app shows that I am connected.

Any ideas?  The 1258 RRC is Version 7, HW 8,Software 2.87, and the K-3 software is up to date.

I'm looking at page 208 of the User Manual Rev A34.  I do not see a listing for the value of Radio Setting "COM0 Program mode 3 char timeout".

What should this field be set to?  I have software version 2.87 in my RRC.

I'm working on an Elecraft K3 remote setup.  I was looking at the two factory cables for the microphones connections and they both have the RJ45 pin 7 wired to the mike jack pin 5.  The drawings in the USER MANUAL do not show this connection.  Pin 5 of the K3 is used by the button on the microphone and is a programmable feature (OFF or ON).  Is this feature supported by the 1258?

General / Got a new smartphone today.
« on: 2015-12-23, 23:03:36 »
Hello,

I purchased a new Andriod smartphone today and loaded the Kenwood and Elecraft Nano Apps.  The Kenwood is working fine, but how do I transfer the license to the new phone?  Can I keep the app on both my tablet and phone?

I decided to pick up an inexpensive mike off of eBay for my RRC control unit.  It turns out that the eBay mike uses an electret mike element.  The electret mike evidently works when connected directly to the TS-480SAT, but not when connected to the Control RRC.  I wired the 8 volt lead in the Control unit to pin #2 of the mike connector and put JMP1 on, but it still does not work.

Am I missing something, or is it not possible to use this mike on the RRC Control unit for the TS-480?

General / Cannot 1.3.1 on Nextbook NX700QC
« on: 2015-09-07, 17:40:39 »
I had Nano working fine until the 1.3.0 update.  I removed the E, K, and S apps and tried to reload RCC-NANO K.  Google Store still reports that K is Installed on my device.  I tried to install anyway and received "No carrier Digiin NX700QC" message.  See the attached screen photos.

I don't know where to go from here.  Everything (E,K and S) shows to be removed but Google Store says it is still installed.

Hello to All,

I have two remote stations that I would like to access from the same RRC-Control unit, a TS-480SAT and an Icom IC-706MKIIG.  My plan was to set up two profiles and switch between them when I want to change radios.  What I am finding is that I could probably avoid changing jumpers by wiring the AUX/MIC microphone cable differently for the Kenwood TS-480.  My problem is the JMP1 (DC to Mic) and JMP2 (8/9V) jumpers.  It looks like I would have to open the RRC-Control and move these jumpers in order to change from Kenwood to Icom IC-706 configuration.

Is there anyone out there using the RRC-Control box for different brand radios?  If so, have you figured out a way to easily switch between brand radios.

Thanks, Joe, K1ike

I'm trying to remote an Elecraft W-2 wattmeter that has an RS232 interface.  The DB9 connector has RTS/CTS looped toward what would normally be the computer.  I am trying to extend this connection using the virtual port driver to a distant computer.  It appears that the software on the computer wants to see a loop on RTS/CTS to provide flow control. (not sure of this yet).

I wonder if the Microbit Virtual Port Driver supports RTS and CTS?
