Im going to follow your advice to connect the FT-857 using Micro Client:  keep the front panel connected to the body of the FT-857 and connect the radio to the RCC with a cable between the cat socket of the radio (mini din) and the TTL connector of the RCC. For the cable I will use the FT-897 configuration. Question: the strapping and jumpers in the radio RCC are now set for the FT-857. Can I keep these unchanged, or must I switch to the FT-897 settings?

All the best,


Mike, that's understood. Thanks again.

Mike, Many thanks. I understand. What a pity. Perhaps you will find a solution for  the FT-857.

You write:
>As it is today you must have the frontpanel connected direct to the Radio.

But when I do that, I cannot connect the RCC to the body of the FT-857. So, just to get this clear: at the moment the FT-857 can never work with the Micro Client? Or is there a way of connecting the RCC unit to the radio when the frontpannel is attached?

Best wishes,

I am considering buying the RRC Client so downloaded the trial version.
When I connect to the Radio RCC (which is connected to a FT-857) the radio is switched on and off continuously in a rapid way. How can I remedy this situation?

Hi Ziv,

Thanks! Wonder if you have some tips about the relay. What kind of voltage can the I/O of he RCC switch. Obviously not 230 :) What type of relay would be best to switch the power supply unit of the radio?

About working with the FT-857 the manual says:

You must install a remote controlled switched so you can switch off the 13,8V power to the radio. For example a Webswitch 1216H, or a GSM Switch, If you do no use all outputs on the RRC-1258 you can use one of the outputs to control a relay which can switch off the 13.8V power to the Radio.

Does anybody have experience with that last option (using an RRC output to switch the radio's psu off and on). I would be very much interested how people have done this.

Thanks and 73

Yes. This makes sense. Thank you.

In the manual and on this forum I have come across the dire warning:
Do NOT enter anything in the external IP/host field! Yet my the external address of my router has spontaneously appeared in this field, I think after I for the first time managed to access my radio from an outside location? (which, by the way, was a magical occasion). So what do I do? Leave it, or heed the warning and remove it?
