General discussion forum / Yaesu Twin Question
« on: 2011-03-20, 17:40:46 »

I am interested in the Yaesu Twin for my FT-2000. I have an offer for another
FT-2000 that I am considering for the control.

My question is: does the CAT have to go only to COM2 as in the instructions,
or can I also put it to COM1 and loop it through COM2 as on the other RRC's?
I would need this loop-through capability to prevent breaking my present set-up.

Dumb (bonus) question: why is the Yaesu Twin so expensive? The cables can't make the
difference. Appears to be the same hardware to the other RRC, probably with a
different firmware (but no updates are showing on the download page yet). I assume
this is a marketing driven price, but it seems very high. I don't expect an answer on
this question, just wanted to get it off my chest!

I know that Difona had a couple in stock recently, you can check with them:

I would send a mail, since this may not be a listed item on their web page.

That is really nice of you, but shipping two of these 30 KG+ rigs from W6
to Sweden and back will cost you a small fortune! Not to mention the
insurance for the $11k value of each rig.

Maybe someone in Sweden can help Mike out instead?

I have found this adapter to be 100% reliable. I am not sure what kind of problem
you have had with it.

It is necessary to put a DB9 bridge on the external antenna switch, otherwise
the adapter will not work reliably. Maybe you didn't make this bridge and that's
why you experienced your problem?

Yes, I have no problem browsing the RRC.

Note that I have three other devices on the same LAN that are
updating DynDNS using different host names, but the same account.

My DynDNS also stopped working with 2.33, but my error code is 8.

I have an account with DynDNS and have several names that work
just fine every day. User name and password are good, and I never
made any kind of change, it just stopped working.

Hi Ziv,

I personally have never been able to get RemoteRig to work on
any 3G network in Germany. I suspect they somehow block SIP, even
with a non-standard port. VoIP is not allowed here on these networks,
so they must have put some extra effort in to block it. This may also
be your problem.

ok, thanks. It was worth a shot  ;)

Configuration of Routers, Firewalls, etc / SIP ALG
« on: 2011-03-04, 11:56:10 »

I see a lot of warnings to have SIP ALG turned off in the router. I have
never read what the effect is when it is turned on. Could you please tell
me what problem it causes?

I am asking, because I am trying to debug an installation where I do not
have direct router access. I don't want to request a change unless it is
necessary. The problem is audio breaking-up at irregular intervals, even
though the line is very fast. Maybe SIP ALG is the problem.

Thanks & 73,

The program says that every single serial port from 1 through 59 is in use,
except for 55! It says it successfully reclaimed 55, which is higher than the
port PC Client uses now. It also has no effect on PC Client.

When I look at Device Manager, it shows 8 ports in use.

This is really strange!

I can try the registry key you gave me when I have time for
a reboot.

Or buy a small hardware bridge, such as:

This program does not appear to do anything under XP. Do you know
otherwise of any way to change the COM port number of the virtual
ports of the PC Client? I also can't find the registry entry that is
mentioned. The driver also does not allow the port number to be
changed as usual.

My XP put my ports at a number over 30, which TRX-manager can not
address. HRD works just fine with these ports, but that is not my
standard software.

I am not sure if Acom will sell this directly. If you don't get an answer
from Acom or your dealer, you can always order from Difona in Germany

At least three of us have successfully ordered these adapters from
Difona, so they understand what it is you want. Note that these are
NOT stock items, so delivery may be delayed a few weeks.

Note that when you get the adapter, you need to bridge the DB9
connector for the external antenna switch if you do not have that
switch. E-mail me for details once you receive the switch if you need
any help. It is simple, but it won't work without one or the other on
this socket.

Hi Mark,

Seems to me that it would be cheaper and easier just to buy the
original Acom remote control solution ;-)
