Then I guess Mike will have to contact you about repair, or you should contact HRO if you
bought it from them.

Hi Chris,

That is indeed strange. I have seen dead power supplies, but never two of them at once. Resetting the RRC will
never make a difference, because this would be a hardware issue.

Did you try using a "real" 12v power supply? There is a cable included in the RRC box. This would then verify if
the problem is with the PS or RRC itself.

Hi Ned,

Glad that you are making progress. These things can be hard to find, I can tell you lots
of stories   :'(

Hi Joe,

Drop me a short mail to dj0qn (at) darc.de and I will send you my networking checklist that explains
the setup procedure.

The SIP password should be in both units. I think you are confusing it with the SIP contact, which is
only in the control RRC.

Anyway, my checklist will go into detail if you want it.

If anyone needs help or has questions in Dayton, I will be available at the DARC booth about 50% of
the time (across from the ARRL). Otherwise, you can contact me at 424-288-9171.

RemoteRig does not exhibit in Dayton, but their products are available at HRO.

Hi Pete,

There are two serial server COM ports available on the RRC's. In "Twin" mode, like what you are
using, both are already being used. Therefore, you need to find another solution. Any yes, the
COM ports can either be set to use USB or standard cables, but not both at the same time.

There is the Microbit solution that you will find at: http://www.remoterig.com/wp/?page_id=636
and also the more generic WebSwitch will do the job: http://www.remoterig.com/wp/?page_id=166

I personally use standard serial port servers, such as from Lantronix. They are relatively inexpensive
and work great. You use a standard rotor control program over a virtual serial port and not a web
interface.

You will find instructions in the RemoteRig manual, pages 94-95 & Appendix B.

An external keyer interfaces as a straight key, so a straight key could be used in place of a keyer.

Gary,

In therefore highly suggest that you go through the checklist once again and this time carefully read it.

- If you are using an adapter cable, then of course the Microbit drivers will never show up. That only works when you
use a standard USB cable like the one that came with the RRC.

- If you do use a converter cable, I highly recommend that you use one based upon the FTDI chip. Other ones
often don't work.

- You absolutely must use a standard serial cable on the radio side between the TS-480 and RRC COM2. A USB
to serial converter cable will not work.

Maybe this will help you find your problem.

Gary,

That is not a Microbit port. I do not understand what you are doing. Are you using a USB cable
between the RRC and PC, or are you using a USB to serial adapter cable? If not using the RRC's
native USB converter, you will need to set  "Use USB Com Port as COM2" to NO of course.

Hi Gary,

Per my checklist, ONLY the control RRC needs to be changed on "Use USB Com Port as COM2" to YES.

Your screenshot either did not work, or else you don't have the drivers loaded. I have no idea where you
see COM18. I don't see it.

Hi Gary,

You keep on missing the most important screen shot....send us the one of the
Windows Device Manager with the serial ports open.

Also make sure that "Use USB Com Port as COM2" on COM2 on the control RRC is set to YES.

Hi Pete,

Here is my CAT checklist for the K3 Twin:


CAT Checklist for K3 Twin
----------------------------------
Note first that in a "Twin" configuration, COM2 is used to "tie" the two ends together and carries the CAT data. In order to access CAT, you need to get to COM2 without touching it. The easiest method is to duplicate COM2 over COM1 using a function in the RRC as follows:

- Change both RRC's COM1 to mode-7. Note that the baud rate does not have to be identical with COM2 to fit a lower bandwidth or software requirement.

- If using a "real" serial cable:
     - connect between the control RRC's COM1 and the PC, but note that the pinout is not the standard straight-through serial port. Use the pinout description in the RemoteRig manual, or just try a null-modem cable which usually works (may need a gender changer).
     - The  serial setting for COM1 "Use USB Com Port as COM1" must be set to NO

- If using USB:
     - make sure that first Microbit Setup Manager is installed first on the control PC to get the drivers.
     - Then change the serial settings for COM1 to change "Use USB Com Port as COM1" to YES
     - connect the USB cable between the RRC and computer and wait for the drivers to finish installing
     - go to the Windows Device Manager and look at which virtual serial port was assigned to COM1 and use that for your software, taking the correct baud rate into account.

Note also that you can pull CAT data in parallel off of the radio RRC to use a PC on that end, or to sync with a remote device (amplifier, SteppIR, etc.)

Gary,

There is nothing to configure in the Device Manager. All you do there is to look to
see which virtual port that Windows assigned to the RRC's COM2. It will for all
practical purposes never be COM2. That virtual port number is what is used for HRD.

If you are using a standard serial cable, that is different, but I assume you are using USB.

Did you try changing the  "UDP cmd min-data-size"?

Gary,

1) Is the CAT setting in the TS-480 also at 4800?

2) Are both RRC's COM2 serial settings at 4800?

That Windows screen shot is useless. Windows will use whatever you send to it automatically.
