Hi Mike,

Right, I just reread your posting and realize that you already proved that it worked elsewhere, thereby
confirming that the problem is at the apartment.

I am not sure why CW would work less, hard to say. There are three UDP streams sent over three different
ports. The port that sends the CW commands is a different port that sends an audio stream, so my guess is
that that particular port is at least partially blocked. Maybe someone else has a better theory.

What does the status screen show on both sides when you make a connection? There may be a clue there as
to which port is being blocked. I would then take a look first at the router to make sure that the port is being
forwarded correctly (as UDP). The only "fix" would be to change this port to something different and try it again.
If that doesn't work, I would try a different router.

Hi MIke,

Sounds like a router or even switch problem, or perhaps some settings that are not correct. I doubt that it is with
the ISP, but you never know.

Basically it is impossible to answer this based upon your post. You need to make a lot of individual tests and use the
process of elimination to find the problem.

First I would take the RRC and control panel to someone else's house and try it from there. If it works as it should, then
you have narrowed the problem to your QTH.

Then you need to see if you can borrow a different router, or some more methods to locate the problem. You will have to
make a list and see if you can find the culprit.

Look at the status pages on the RRC's. That will tell you if the connection is working.

I sent Eric my networking checklist.

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX

I never wrote change "the SIP" . I wrote change the SIP CONTACT". If you look under the radio
settings on the control RRC, you will find that field. To connect to the other RRC, it must contain
the radio RRC's IP number. In case of inside of the LAN, use the internal IP number. In case of
outside of the LAN, use the external IP number or the dynamic DNS address.

Since this is covered well in both the manual and my checklist, I answered you that all you need
to change is the SIP contact between the two profiles. I assumed you knew that they had two different
IP numbers. All else stays exactly the same, therefore my recommendation to import the same setting
into the new profile and just change the SIP contact.

Clear now?

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX

Thanks ...but you are way ahead of me. I understand the profile setting procedure but..
I see two settings for "SIP" on the control and the radio RRCs:
SIP Port and SIP Password
Which do I change for home LAN use and what do I change it to?
I already answered that in my first point before. Nothing else changes, only the SIP contact needs to be changed.

It is really very simple:

- The only setting that will change between the two is the SIP contact

- To change the profile, just go to the active profile dropdown and change it, then submit. You may wish to
name them first.

- To save time, save the settings using the menu "export as BIN". Then import this once you switched the
profile and change the SIP contact.

Now you can toggle back and forth.

Hi Paul,

Hard to say. I am not an Icom person, but I do know that the CI-V converter must be an original
Icom one to work.

Check your settings under COM2, which is used for CAT. On the control RRC, you must have "use
COM2 for USB" set to NO if using a serial to USB converter externally. To use the RRC's internal USB
converter and only a USB cable, then it is set to YES. I also found that cheap USB converters don't
work all the well with the RRC, so you may try using the internal converter instead.

Look at the status pages on both RRCs.

You use anything that you have connected to your Windows PC. The drop down box allows you to select
whatever you want. Most people use a USB headset.

Glad to hear that all is working, good luck and see you in Dayton.

Drop me a short email at dj0qn (at) and I will send you my networking checklist that walks you through the process.

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX

Which version do you have, A or B? Only version A has a sound card. The newer version B no longer has a sound card built in, therefore a key input.

You use the sound card that you select in RRC Micro as the input and output in your digital program.
Note that these use Windows settings, so you will likely need to adjust the settings in Windows as well.

I am not sure if I 100% understood you, but this is normal behavior.

The RRC sets up the SIP stream from the radio and that is what is used for CAT control. Therefore,
HRD can not possibly turn on the radio using only HRD and requires the RRC to be connected first.

The RRC Micro works completely differently and sets up the stream and turns on the radio by itself.
