I have an Icom 7100, and have been running with the control head connected to the Control RRC. Works fine.

I would like to be able to connect to the radio using a separate Control RRC without the control head, using Ham Radio Deluxe to control the radio, but using the Control RRC for Audio and CW paddle. If I set the jumpers on the Control RRC to use CI-V, do I have to set up the Radio RRC's jumpers to operate as CI-V, or can I leave it like it is (Configured for control head operation)?

I would like to be able to still use the control head with the other Control RRC as it is.

I was wondering if it is possible to use an external keyer with the 1274B so I can avoid the "clicky" computer audio sidetone, and use the keyer's internal sidetone instead, and control speed with the external keyer rather than software??

Thanks,

General discussion / Sidetone for paddle CW not present
« on: 2016-12-22, 20:53:21 »
I can't get the local sidetone for the paddle CW to be audible. I tried toggling the sidetone button in RRC Micro, but no luck.
I can see that the rig is being keyed, just no local sidetone.

I cannot access the web page for my RRC-Control Box. I tried updating the firmware hoping that would set it to null, but it didn't work. How can I reset that password if I can't connect to it. I don't see anything in the Microbit Setup Manager that would allow me to do that either.

General discussion / FS: RRC-Micro 1274A **Reduced**
« on: 2016-05-28, 02:25:53 »
I wanted the new ability to run paddle CW with the newer 1274B dongle......so I got one.

I have a 1274A dongle I'd like to sell. Works perfectly on SSB and Keyboard CW.

Asking $120.00 or best offer.

Thanks

What is the difference between the dongle I have, and the "new" one?

General discussion / RRC-Micro beta release CW issue
« on: 2013-11-15, 02:21:19 »
Love the new interface, all working great except for Macros. When sending longer macros, such as a 3x3 CQ, it only sends a short part of the macro and stops. When typing in the window, all is perfect.

General discussion / Keyboard CW....no way to insert pause?
« on: 2013-10-08, 04:49:02 »
I am LOVING the new RRC-Micro on my IC-7100. I have found an issue I can't resolve. I tried a CW QSO a few moments ago, and although I put a space between words on the keyboard (with the spacebar), all of the characters are run together as if there is no pause between words. I tried to find something on the website that explains the keyboard CW, but didn't find any.

Is there a way to insert a pause between words, other than waiting until the previous word is sent before typing the next word? (That way leaves TOO big a pause). A space between words on the keyboard isn't working here.

Even with this issue, I had a good qso with the other party. hi hi.

Thanks,

Hardware, Cabling, Installations / IC-7100 won't connect
« on: 2013-09-26, 05:30:34 »
I used to have an Icom 706 working on the RRC's. I now have a 7100. I have changed the wire jumpers per the manual, and changed JMP2 to open on the RRC-Control box.

When I push the power button on the control head, nothing happens.

I also have CW announce for the IP address on......on the IC-706, it played through the speaker connected to the control head.
On the 7100, I do not hear the CW IP address through the control head. If I connect a speaker to the RRC-Control, it sounds out the CW IP address.

Any suggestions?

Configuration, RRC 1258 / IC-706 audio pauses over internet
« on: 2013-08-07, 05:03:53 »
I am testing my IC706 over the net from our FLA QTH. The ping times are good at both ends, and I have videoconferenced with my XYL from here to the home QTH with no delays..... but on the 706, the audio seems to pause every 5-8 seconds. When tuning, it also seems to jitter sometimes. On SSB, it's bearable, but for CW it's very hard. I increased the jitter buffer at the Control end, as high as 15, but no help. Any suggestions?

Both ends have 20+ Mbps down/ 2 Mbps up.

Thanks

General discussion forum / Configuration for IC-7100?
« on: 2013-07-19, 01:43:26 »
I see that you can just use a CAT6 cable from the head to the RRC, but could you tell us what jumpers should be installed in the RRC? Is it the same as the IC-706?

Thanks

I thought you could select any audio source once you had the dongle plugged in.  Once I plug the dongle in, windows (7/64) mutes the internal mic in my notebook, and even if I unmute it, once I push the PTT (which does key the TX), the internal mic is muted again. Do you HAVE to use a mic plugged into the dongle?

General discussion / RRC-Micro PTT control for HRD?
« on: 2013-05-22, 02:06:05 »
Can the PTT button on the RRC-Micro dongle control PTT for Ham Radio Deluxe. When I push the button, it mutes the receive audio, but does not key the radio. Is there a setting in HRD for it?

Thanks.

I have the RRC boxes working very well with the IC-706 and remote control head.
Is it possible to have a Micro PC client connect to the radio ? I looked at the HRD commands, and don't see a command to control AF gain, so I don't know how I could control it.

Thanks
