Mike ,
Thanks for replay I called my friend at remote site and he power up Steppir manually and after 5 min of waiting all seems to be working I can power up and down from web switch never thought about timing, thanks again for all your help we all are really enjoying ham radio using your products also can you take a look and tell me which schematic is correct I tried a few times already use com1 in RRc to copy my com2 and all my attempts fail I use pin 2and 3 backwards and in menu use mode 6 also try menu 7 here are two pictures and again I'm not sure which is correct? I'm not sure If this is typo error or pin 1and 9 needs to be connected
thanks

Hi
My setup is working ok but lately I'm getting bad audio reports that there is some sort of squeaking sound(bad fan)this is happen doesn't matter what power I'm using, it will last all the time switching on/ off radio doesn't help it only back to normal when I reset (disconnect power wire from control RRC )when it starts normal will stay ok for hours of transmitting. Does anybody have the same issue?
My setup TS-480 body to RRC to Router (wired) and control head to RRC and WI-FI .
Here attached is audio friend of mine recorded for me (audio is in Polish ) notice that when I'm speaking you can hear in background then I wait and still keying  mic for a few sec and then gets really loud
Thanks'

Hardware, Cabling, Installations / ts480 cw keying
« on: 2014-12-04, 02:06:08 »
Hi
I connect all cables as described in manual for cw keying but for some reason when I'm sending in cw mode its not keying the radio (it does key in fsk and fm mode ) can someone give me a hint what is wrong
I have a vox on and full break in
on radio side I'm using stereo plug where tip is connected to pin 5 and ground from plug goes to pin 8
(should I use mono since this is straight key connection?)
when I'm sending using paddle or computer in cw mode on control panel red tx goes on  but nothing coming out from radio on remote side
Thanks

Just a question is it possible to have a downloaded map of the world in background of existing map from Microbit?
Thanks

Mitch, thank you for your time and replay this means that I don't need it serial cable from body ts480 to rrc correct? and all I have to do is connect rcc com1 to steppir (data in) and com2 to expert db25 (expert rs 232 port has to go to rc1216h )and change menu as you described
 manual rc1216h : expert 1kw "A serial cable has to be connected from the RC-1216H to the PA RS-232 port.You also need to connect the PA to direct to the radio to get the necessary control functions from the Radio.If you need to connect CAT ports to the Radio, the Radio-RRC and the PA, check the
Remoterig RRC-1258 manual how to use the RRC as a serial port server. Eg. you connect the PA to the RRC COM1 and the Radio to COM2."
with this setup  Ill be still missing  my connection with steppir
