General discussion forum / New Feature Wish List
« on: 2010-06-16, 18:17:03 »
The RemoteRig is really a great and innovative product, and everyone that I show it to wants to buy one (if they didn't already). As with every successful product, everyone seems to have a wish list of new features they would like to see included in new firmware versions, or even hardware revisions.

I have seen a couple of suggestions spread throughout the forum, but thought I would start a topic to suggest a couple and let everyone fill in the rest with your ideas:

- Save and reload settings. This would enable you make a backup, share a RemoteRig installation more easily, etc.

- Multiple server settings. This would allow you to switch between multiple server installations.

- Ability to use a SIP software/hardware client. This would allow using RemoteRig without having to carry the remote head and maybe the 1258 box with you. This could be using either a PC at the remote control site with remote control software such as VNC, or you could connect a serial port on the 1258 to the CAT on the rig and control it with software locally that way by only carrying the 1258 box along. It may be that this is already possible and only the settings need to be documented.

- Not exactly a device feature suggestion, but for me the weak point of the product is the documentation. Even though I am a native English speaker, I completely misunderstood the current documentation on some points. I suggest that a wiki is started to improve the documentation and keep it up to date by the user community. An excellent example of this can be seen for the Win-Test documentation at http://docs.win-test.com/wiki/Main_Page

So let's see if some others have further suggestions.

General discussion forum / CW with TS-480
« on: 2010-04-22, 21:23:46 »
I have everything working now, with the exception of CW. No matter what settings I use, nothing works. I can use TRX-Manager to send using the TS-480 internal keyer (over CAT), but the RemoteRig keyer does not transmit no matter what I do.

Some settings detail:
- TS-480 VOX on
- Tried various delay settings (full BK to slow)
- Turned "Continous RTP tx" on control side (although I think this is only for SSB VOX)
- TS-480 mutes when I use the paddle (and the RRC-1258MkII sends sidetone)
- I have checked the cable from the RemoteRig box to the TS-480 with an ohm meter (stereo out to mono in plug in the "key" jack)

This set-up is going with me to Brussels on Sunday evening to be used next week at the IARU EUROCOM amateur radio exhibition in the European Parliament building. Obviously SSB will be used most of the time, but it would be nice to get this working as well.
