Hi Charles,

Hard to say, at least that should have worked. I still think the problem is with N1MM somewhere.

Let's make a time for me to take a look using Teamviewer. Please contact me directly to arrange it.
I think that I will be home on Sunday afternoon.

Hi Charles,

This is the sort of thing you should have sent me directly and not over this Forum.

Anyway, like I wrote before, there are no RRC settings beyond serial that affect CAT at
all. You need to look at the settings in N1MM. The RRC settings are fine.

Do you have a USB to serial converter available, preferably with an FTDI chip? If so, use
that instead of the USB cable on COM1 of the RRC. In that case, you would need to set
“Use USB Com Port as COM1” to NO and use the serial port of the converter cable. You may
be experiencing driver problems with the RRC's built-in converter. That occurs a lot.

Correction: the K3 menu RS232 should match the COM2 settings. COM1 can be a
different setting. It is a must for the COM2, not COM1.

Hi Charles,

Plugging into the K3/0 Mini won't work when using the RRC. You can only use
the RRC.

Then you need to look at the settings in the K3 and N1MM. Make sure that are are
exactly the same baud rate:
- RRC COM1 on both sides
- K3 menu RS232
- N1MM

Again, you need to use COM11.

harles,

You must use COM11.

You wrote that you set “Use USB Com Port as COM1” to YES. In that case, are you using the standard USB cable without adapter between the RRC and PC?

There are no settings in the RRC's that affect CAT in any way one the serial ports are
set to pass the CAT data on.

You can only fix this within WJST. I made a screen shot for you.

Jorge,

Use CAT for PTT. You will find the setting in WJST.

Jorge,

Actually, it is completely irrelevant which rig you are using, since the connection is directly
between the spund card interface and the control RRC. The only variation between them is
the way you set the red straps in the RRC for a specific microphone. This is what determines
which wires in the cable are used for audio and ground.

I am not sure about your setting, but make sure the K3 is set correctly to handle that mode. I
suspect that is where your problem lies and not in the RRC.

Hi Jorge,

There are a lot of posts on this topic if you were to use the search function.

Just go from the soundcard interface's out put into the control RRC's AUX/MIC jack. Use an old
ethernet cable and attach the plug on one end. Use CAT for PTT in WJST.

My remote group has been doing it this way since FT8 came out and it works great.

Robin,

Just access the Webswitch's web page using a browser. I do not believe that the guys
in Sweden ever did an iPhone app.

Paul,

What firmware versions are you running on the two sites? Are they the same and up to date? What version
is the control RRC running?

Are you using the same port numbers for both sites? If so, are you attempting to access both from the same
control location simultaneously?

Gerry,

One question that isn't clear from your posting: are the radio RRC and 857 running from the same
power supply, or two different ones?

Hi Joe,

To ensure a consistent audio stream on digital modes, I suggest increasing the buffer to 12
and delay to 10 on both sides. You may also try another trick in changing RTP to "continuous"
to maintain a solid connection. This increases the data volume and causes problems with some
microphones, but will prevent a drop in the audio and CAT stream.

Hi Joe,

I know of quite a number of people running FT8 remotely on the control side without a problem. You can run
a computer on the radio side and use for example Teamviewer for control, but that should not be necessary.

What is the problem with PTT over CAT? It works for everyone I know. Is WJST getting the frequency from
CAT ok? If so, PTT should work. A tip could be to use a real serial cable instead of USB for COM2 on the
RRC, since sometimes the RRC's USB converter is unstable.

Try increasing your buffers to help get around the internet problem. That certainly would prevent it from
working correctly, as it would interrupt any QSO.
