Configuration, RRC 1258 / serial 2 CAT control ft 991A
« on: 2018-05-17, 14:30:28 »
a few questions.

set to mode 3 or mode 4?

the  RRC users guide under general Yaesu states set CAT Baud to 38400  so should com 2 be set to 38400 8 ,N. 0? I was using it for previous ft 857 and com 2 settings were different for CAT.

I will be using the serial port on the 991A and HRD for total remote control

So then, the connection would be:

Control END
PC running HRD to USB port on control RRC,(set serial port 2 to use usb) microphone to Mic jack, speaker from speaker jack.
HRD would do all the control

FT991 serial cat port to RRC radio end serial port 2 , mic to mic, speaker to speaker..

seems logical then.

I would like to upgrade my now working system centered around a yaesu ft 857 with an ft991, because of the C4FM capability of the 991.

The 991 does not have a removable control head so it appears the control would have to take place with an rrc micro unit?

Control of the 991 would have to be accomplished via the radio RRC via the serial port to the serial port of the 991 using HRD.

However, the TTL port on the radio RRC doesnt appear to have any place to plug into the 991, like the diagrams show a typical CVI control,  how would you control the 991? I think that is why it cannot be done

I had been successfully using my remote rigs until this morning when now they will not connect.

It is a yaesu FT 857 and here are the conditions

I can access the web admin pages of both units from their assigned IP addresses so I assume the internet connection is good.

the settings appear to all be the same as they were

The control unit has the green power led illuminated and the rear rj45 network jack is flashing to indicate traffic.

I have restarted both units several times

pressing the power button on the ft 857 control unit has no effect

when I return home I will bring the units together and test, but does anybody have any ideas now?

that is where I tried hooking them up, so must be the import problem.
I see the webstore has them, so I will order from there.

Thank you

SO are the correct terminals those next to the Buss A connections?
I see terminals marked
Buss B
In -1
0 volts
In -2

I purchased two DS18B20 temp probes

and have tried to integrate them with my 1216H on BUSS B, since I have the rotor controller 1216L on buss A.
The probes are wired in the passive mode, VCC+ and - tied together to one connection of the 1216H and the data wire to the other.

Performing a scan results in the error message no Buss B 1 wire devices found

After troubleshooting I discovered there is no 13.8 v dc coming from the cat jack pin 1 on the ft 857.
Since this is a serial to ttl level convertor the power for the ct 62 appears to need voltage from the cat jack, unlike a USB cat cable which derives power from USB.

The fuse for the pin 1 appears to be a surface mount micro fuse , so I have given up on repair.

I ordered a device that intercepts the mic line to provide a cat control connection, but it will have the same issue as no power is available from that modification..

I have the following:
Yaesu FT857D
Yaesu FT817D
remote rigs latest version
Genuine Yaesu CAT 62 cable
USB CAT Cable with prolific chip
desktop PC
laptop PC
HRD on both pcs

I cannot get HRD to successfully communicate from the desktop pc through the remote rigs to the ft817
the error reads fail to read frequency

HOWEVER I can move the remote rig connection to the ft817 and it connects

I can take the laptop and the usb cable and communicate with the ft857 ok

all settings are 8N2 4800 cat enabled etc.ALl tests are all on my local network.

so I am stumped.

The CT62 cable must be ok since it will communicate with the 817D through the remote rigs which also must be configured correct.

The ft857 cat port must be ok since the usb cat cable communicates with it through the laptop.

did you try  with your ddns entry?

I just ordered an AS 1289

so I will have complete remoterig system
the RRC-1258 MkII and factory cables
WebSwitch 1216H
rotor control 1216L
and now antenna switch

Thank you, order was just placed and received ur email!

HRO in the USA has none I want to order but want to know if they are available for shipment from the microbit web store

thank you

I saw the files associated with the default location and it is immense with lots of jpgs for each point, etc

I am interested in an image similar to the HRD rotor image like a map or Mercator

or would it be easier to use hrds rotor page bit I dont think they work together

General discussion forum / I fixed my latency problem!!!

After fighting with an ft857 remote and my own errors I suceeded in them communicating, but I had audio latency and dropouts.Also the ft857 control would take several attempts to power up.

I fixed the problem.

My RRC was plugged into a 5 port switch, along with the webswitch and a weather computer, that was connected to a wifi  extender that had a network port on it.

last night I moved the switch with a temporary long cat 5 cable to my modem/router that has ethernet ports on it.

This morning success first time , I can now power up and down , no issues.

So I have other wifi devices in the house(cameras mostly) so I am sure it was a bottleneck at the wifi extender that chocked everything.
