That would not work, since you can only link to one, single graphic file.

Hi Frank,

I don't understand your question, but the graphic can be available anywhere on or offsite, as long
as it is reachable over the internet if offsite.

Charlie,

Just use any standard Heil RJ45 adapter for any rig and change the red straps inside of the RRC
to match it.

Correct, a USB interface will not work with RemoteRig.

Frank,

I am not sure if this is what you are looking for, but you can use any image that you want for the
rotator. Just place the image somewhere where the WebSwitch can see it and change the URL at the
top of the Rotator Settings menu "Rotator Image URL".

Hi Mike,

That is interesting, but what kind of Windows client software can be used for relays? I was able to make it work fine
with a rotor using normal rotor clients, but it would be nice to understand how to switch relays as well.

Hi Frank,

I believe the serial port server only is for the rotor and nothing else on the Webswitch, so it is
useless for you, sorry.

Hi Gary,

So if I understood you correctly, it works fine when not used at your home? That would indicate that the
problem is at your home and not at the remote site. Seems that your ISP or router has a problem.

It is important to know what the status page says when it goes down.

I still don't understand what you mean that someone needs to reboot the RRC. First of all, all you need to do
is to go into its web page a click on the reboot menu at the bottom. I saved your RRC's web page in case you
had future problems and would have no problem rebooting from here, so you should as well. Second of all, if
the problem is on the control side, then that is where you should look for the problem and rebooting should
not be necessary.

Hi Gary,

You need to provide a lot more data to locate the problem, for example:

- How long does it take until the connection dies?
- Does it happen consistently and at the same rate?
- What does the status page say on each RRC after the connection dies?
- Have you tried it from a different control location to see if it behaves the same?
- Why would someone have to turn it off and on? Is the web interface no longer working or accessible to reboot it that way?
etc.

Hi Bruno,

Glad that you verified that the cables were crap. Sometimes I do know what I am talking about ;-)

Good luck and let me know if you need further assistance.

P.S.: I see that you are in Carlsbad. There and Naples were the two finalists when we retired to the U.S., but
Naples won in the end. Tell Cecil from PAPA hi from me when you hear him.

Jeff,

I just got home and was going to give you the page in the manual.

Note that the microphone input for the RRC is different depending upon how the red straps are installed in
the socket. I assume that this is your problem.

I would use the computer's line out and go directly to the RRC and never through the K3/0. This is to have a
consistent audio level.

Jeff,

Your problem is easy to solve. You should not go to the K3/0, but directly between the PC and RRC's AUX/MIC and SP jacks.

Hi Jeff,

Hard to follow you on the CAT settings, but if the test works, then we can focus on the audio problem.

This kind of issue is often caused by Windows settings. Make sure that you select the settings for that
specific sound device used under Windows and adjust the audio there. Let us know if that was the
problem.

Hi Frank,

The Webswitch is the only Microbit device with a serial port server. You set it up on the last tab with the
Microbit Setup Manager. Then you can control the rotor using a Windows client instead of using the web
page (but not both at once). The Webswitch is still using the normal way of controlling the rotor and not
using USB.

Glad to hear it, that is actually a common mistake, which is why I mentioned it.

The way to use digital modes is easy as you seem to know: just use the AUX/MIC and SP jacks of
the RRC and it works fine after setting the audio levels. Sometimes Windows plays tricks on this, so
one must be careful with the correct sound card levels. That problem causes most of the support questions.

Here is my CAT checklist for the TS-480:

CAT CHECKLIST
---------------------
IMPORTANT: In both scenarios, you MUST first install a standard serial cable between the TS-480 body and COM2 of the radio RRC!

USING A STANDARD SERIAL CABLE
============================
1) Change the CAT rate on the TS-480 to 4800 baud (menu 56). This rate keeps traffic over the internet to a minimum and faster is not necessary for CAT.

2) Change the COM2 serial settings of the radio-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1 and submit/apply changes.

3) Change the COM2 serial settings of the control-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1 and submit/apply changes.

4) Plug a serial cable in between your PC and the control-RRC COM2

5) Set your software to use the correct COM port on your PC at 4800-8-1-N

USING A USB CABLE
=================
1) Change the CAT rate on the TS-480 to 4800 baud (menu 56). This rate keeps traffic over the internet to a minimum and faster is not necessary for CAT.

2) Change the COM2 serial settings of the radio-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1 and submit/apply changes.

3) Install the Microbit Setup Manager if you already haven't. You don't need the problem for this, but this installs the correct drivers on your PC.

4) Change the COM2 serial settings of the control-RRC to mode-4, 4800 baud, data bits 8, stop bits 1, "use USB Com Port as COM2" to "Yes" and submit/apply changes.

5) Plug a USB cable between your PC and control-RRC. Make sure you do NOT do his before step 3 above!

6) Find out the correct port in your Windows Device Manager to use by looking for the "Microbit RRC Virtual COM Port (COM2)"

7) Set your software to use the this COM port on your PC at 4800-8-1-N.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
