Hi Mitch,

I couldn't guess what the conflict is, as I have given an IP/port number to the control which is surely not used by anything else in the network.

Suddenly the problem disappeared... So hopefully it won't happen again

General discussion forum / connection problem
« on: 2019-08-24, 12:51:13 »

using a TS-480S remotely for several months now without any problem.

Yesterday it started with the following problem:

After a while, it could be a couple of minutes or just a few seconds, the frequency on the display disappears. I see a line of dots instead.

At this point it let me change the filter width, NR parameters, etc, but I get no audio and cannot transmit.

When it does that, it sends a CW "UL" message.

Any idea about what it could be?

found out that the problem is generated by a switching power supply I've used to supply the remoterig unit.

Using a conventional one made the problem disappear.

I have nil idea on how that could possible happen...

General discussion forum / IC-7100 noise from remoterig
« on: 2019-05-06, 23:40:30 »

just set up a IC-7100 with the remoterig. Serial 0300454 so used the additional board to be placed instead of the red strap at the control side.

The radio switches on but there is a tremendous noise, which increase if I turn any knob of the front panel.

I have tried to reduce the codec out gain as suggested in another discussion but the only result is that I have the overall volume reduced but with the very same noise.

Any suggestion on how possibly attack the problem?

Thanks in advance for any help

General discussion forum / erratic CW
« on: 2019-04-20, 08:30:18 »

been operating the remote station since yesterday.

everything seems to work but sometime the CW sends erratic signals.

The monitor is perfect but the signals sent are garbage. Lines get very long and erasing most points. Sometime it add points. Totally unreadable.

Same using the remoterig keyer or another electronic keyer through the I/O port.

Then after a while -about one hour- back to normal.

Any hints about where to start troubleshooting?

Internet connection is good.

Voice is ok.

uderstood. Will get a signallink or similar device

thanks Mike.

thanks Alf,

then the pins are correct for the microphone. The PTT goes via CAT and works.

Is it necessary to have the transformer? I was using pin 3 and 4 but with a cable between the hedphones out of the PC and the AUX/MIC RJ45 of the remotering.

When WSJT-X is  switching to TX, I do have the audio at the headset  PC socket. But connecting the cable to the remotering produces no modulation at all

getting very confused here.

I have opened the MIC and it is wired as ON4IQ wrote. The white cable is on pin 3 and comes directly from the mic capsule. I assumed that the mic ground is the blue one, on position four.

But the guy from Kenwood says something different. According to him pin 3 is the common ground.

Can anyone put me on the right track??

This is frustrating, the very last thing missing in order to complete the installation, which should be straightforward is driving me crazy...


I have everything working to the point that WSJT-X get the audio from the radio and show the traffic. Also the PTT works fine, turning the radio to TX when needed.

Now I have to bring the audio from the PC to the RJ45 AUX/MIC of the remoterig.

Taken apart a network cable and according to ts-480 mircophone pinout, I should use the contacts 5 and 6, which should be the white/blue and green.

Connected these two contact to a mono jack. White/Blue to the ground pin and green to the tip one.

As soon as I insert the jack into the PC headphone socket,  the TS-480 goes to TX.

VOX is off.

No doubt I am doing something wrong... What?????

The microphone works fine, so it shouldn't be a jumper related problem

thanks again Mitch,

one step after the other I am getting there... Now I have added the manual keyer and it works fine.


you say "standard" serial cable.

Is it a x1 straight cable,which brings each wire to the same place of the other side or the one which inverts some pairs, also called "null modem"?

thanks for your answer Mitch,

what do you mean by "standard" serial cable?

will this work?

or this one?

will I be able to use the digital modes of the HRD package? How does it get the audio signals?

Same for other software for other digi modes.

I see pictures -SM2OTU on of people using signal link interface. Do we need that in order no transfer AF signals?

thanks Mitch,

it works like a charm!

Appreciated your patience

have the radio working fine in remote and would like to get to the next step, adding HRD functionality.

I have seen in some messages people referring to drawings about the connection of the TS-480 but did not find them.

Any hint?
