Stefan,

You should for sure try different CODECs. There was another thread on here recently that mentioned that
problem and it was solved by changing the CODEC.

If you have any further questions, just let me know. I can be contacted directly at dj0qn (at) darc.de
(die Sprache ist egal).

Hi Neil,

I think you should find a few others on the forum if you search it, since it has been mentioned several
times that it doesn't work via satellite. I tried using Skype from a cruise ship and couldn't even get that
to work. I never bothered bringing RemoteRig stuff along.

Neil,

That would indicate a satellite connection. It is basically not possible to use RemoteRig over a satellite
link, due to the latency. It will drive you crazy, even if you can manage a connection. SSB will have huge
delays and CW basically not possible to use.

Stefan,

The audio sounds scratchy, as if there is not a good connection in the microphone chain. Note that
microphone audio is done entirely in hardware, using the red strappings in the RRC's. Make sure that
all are connecting properly using an ohmmeter. Never push these in by hand, always use a needlenose
pliers to hold just above where the insulation starts and push gently into the hole. If one gets bent, then
throw it away and make a new one.

Also make sure that you are using separate power supplies for the RRC and rig.

If using a VPN, all you need to use is the internal IP number of the radio RRC and not the external IP
number. That won't even work for a VPN, because the ports are not forwarded.

Mike,

Both audio and PTT are not using the CAT cable. CAT only transports the control signals for the rig and
nothing more. I therefore suspect that you have a problem with that cable and need to recheck it.

I am also not 100% is the FT-3000 is even supported by RemoteRig. That may be your problem as well.

Make sure that:

- The serial cable between the rig's CAT port connected to the RRC's COM2 port is a straight through cable and
not null-modem (i.e. pins 2&3 are not crossed)
- Make sure that the rig's CAT is set to the same baud rate and the RRC's COM2
- Make sure that both RRC's COM2 are set to the same baud rate and match what is et in the rig
- The CAT control software should also match the same baud rate as the two RRC's and the rig

Again, the problem may be that your rig is not compatible. I know they support the old protocol (FT-5000, 2000, 950, 450, etc.),
but am not sure about the 3000.

Hi Stefan,

It looks like you may have already attempted to do a lot of tweaking, so perhaps there is not much
more than we can do for you. I assume the bottleneck is actually somewhere in the VPN somewhere,
so perhaps you should try the "normal" method of using port forwards for a test. 99%+ of the installations
are doing fine using this method, so perhaps give it a shot.

Anyway, I have a checklist that assists one with low-bandwidth situations. Again, I assume that you already
tried this, but this is about as best as I can help you at this time:

3G/4G Checklist
------------------
Try reducing your bandwidth to a minimum and changing some parameters to compensate
for a poor line. Note that this is only for using 3G/4G on the control side. Running a RemoteRig
system over 3G/4G with the router on the radio side will never work, unless you pay extra for a
true external IPv4 address or use a VPN.

Here are some tips:

1) These are important:
- audio quality to 0 (half the bandwidth of codec 2 and more than adequate for SSB & CW)
- turn continuous RTP on or set RTP to continuous (depending upon firmware version)
- If using the K3 Twin or Yaesu with a second receiver, then turn off "audio dual-rx" on the
   radio RRC under the radio settings. This doubles the necessary bandwidth if on.

2) Play around with these 3 until you are satisfied:
- increase rx jitter buffer to min 12+
- increase rx jitter delay to min 10+
- audio packet size 20 or 40

3) Also, make sure that serial ports COM1 and COM2 are turned off if not used,
or that either being used is set to the minimum bps necessary to handle the serial
communication. For example, use 4800 for CAT on a rig like the TS-480 and not
a high speed like 57600, since the higher speed is completely unnecessary.

Mike,

Did you connect a serial cable between the rig's CAT port and COM2 of the RRC and enable the port?
That's all you need to do to get CAT to work.

Please contact Elecraft support. They provide the support for the K3/0 Mini.

Mike,

I mam sure not if I understand your question, but I will try:

You can run an unlimited number of remote RRC's with control panels, just always one at a time. You need to power
one off before powering on the next one. Does that answer your question?

Hi Trent,

The RRC Micro PC Client will turn on the rig without a problem and otherwise allow full CAT control
remotely using the client of your choice.

I never received a reply to this post, maybe Mike or someone knows the answer?

Ok, Klaus, I understood your problem to be a serial port issue and not a network issue. Glad that
you were able to solve it.

No, the RRC does not block PTT or the microphone audio. Again, this is done in hardware and
not in the RRC firmware.

Did you change the microphone input on the K3 to the rear input? Maybe you left it on the
front input. You need to do this using the menu or the quick menu buttons.

Klaus,

I have sometimes noticed that the driver is somewhat unstable under certain conditions.
I am not sure if anything can be done to solve it. What I do is a work-around: I use a good
Prolific USB to serial converter and go to the RRC's COM2 as a standard serial connection.
This method is rock solid.
