General discussion forum / Re: CAT control via USB

Hi Dave,

Yes, it works great. All you have to do is:

1) Install the Setup Manager, so that you have the driver installed
2) Check under Windows which serial port number was assigned
3) change the menu setting "Use USB Com Port as COM2" to yes
4) plug-in your USB cable and change your program to use that serial port

Note that there were some bugs in the first version, but it appears to be stable now.

Hi Mike,

There is no need for a "SIP Contact" field on the radio RRC, because that is the contact point
itself. The radio RRC's external IP address is the SIP contact for the control RRC.

The "SIP Password" is some extra security to keep someone from connecting to your RRC. If you leave
the password open and don't change the "SIP port" under the advanced settings, anyone with
a default RRC can connect to your system if they know your DynamicDNS address. Of course, they
would need to use the same hardware (e.g. TS-480 head) to actually do something, but I just wanted
to point out how important it is to change these defaults.

Hi Michael,

I also have an RRC. All I need is your DynamicDNS address, and I am connected. With a SIP
password, I am not connected, it is that simple.

But Mike should give me his DynamicDNS address, so that I can hack into his station!  ;)

That's what passwords are for!

I have a report from the user that the hum problem has NOT happened
again since the update to 2.36. Looks like you may have found the
problem, but of course I will keep you informed if he does have a
problem again.

Thanks again & 73,

Thanks, Jan.

The user will install it this evening, so I can let you know in
a couple of days of use if this problem has been solved.

Hi Mike,

I have suggested that method to several users, but I understood K7CF's statement
as switching specifically between the TS-480 internal keyer and the RRC's keyer. I
was wondering what he was writing about. I think he has confused something.

General discussion forum / TS-480 Keyer

I was reading the eHam reviews of the RemoteRig, and came across the one written by
K7CF on January 2, 2011. In his review, he writes:

"I tried CW and you can either use the internal keyer in the ts480sat (DEFAULT) or you can
use the Key input of the built in keyer of the Control black box. I use the internal keyer in the

This is at

I use the TS-480 as well, but have never seen a way to switch between the two keying methods,
except for accessing the TS-480 internal keyer with software and the RRC keyer with a paddle. Am
I missing something here? K7CF did not respond to my mails to two different addresses.

Thanks, Lars, yes, I have used that program for several users. In this case, I also need
to explain hardware as well as software. I have been able to talk him through firmware
updates, etc., but will of course revert to Teamviewer if he has problems.

Thanks for the great news, Jan.

I was about to get the user to make some tests removing the power cable (it is a notebook PC),
but I will put that on hold until 2.36 is out. He first removed the headset as Guy suggested, but
that didn't make a difference. If you need a beta tester, I can send the firmware to him.

Part of my problem is this user is not very good with computers and lives a long ways from me.

You have the same problem I do, which was never solved:

I answered this in another of your posts, but did you use the internal IP
address to connect to the radio RRC? You need to give
in the "SIP Contact" field under the radio tab. Everything should
otherwise work the same.

Now that both RRC boxes are on your local LAN, you should address them
with your internal IP addresses, e.g. or whatever they were
given by your router's DHCP server. Everything else should stay the same,
including the port changes. Just change it back when you move it to the
station again.

General discussion forum / Re: control of 2 Radios
« on: 2011-04-02, 10:37:52 »
Skip, two inputs from my side:

1) RemoteRig now has supports for profiles, so you can switch between more than
    one radio. Therefore, only one RRC and panel or RRC PC Client on the user side
    is needed, unless you want to use both radios simultaneously.

2) You may wish to order the RRC PC Client from Sweden, since HRO doesn't carry it.
    This way, do do not need anything beyond your PC and this small dongle. See  for details.

I have a user that has a problem that I am unable to duplicate with my set-up.

His installation has been working just fine until now. He upgraded to be able to use
the new USB to COM2 feature of firmware 2.35.

However, he starts gets a loud hum come after about two minutes of turning the
TS-480 on, and the head turns off at that point. Here are some details:

- TS-480 head with RRC firmware 2.35 (upgraded shortly before problem started)
- New USB as serial feature enabled ("Use USB Com Port as COM2")
- Appears that the RRC maintains connection to station RRC after head turns off
- Cables (ethernet, RRC--> head) checked and ok
- Swapped power supply with no change
- Removing USB cable makes hum continuous
- Changing "Use USB Com Port as COM2" back to NO, solves the problem,
   but of course doesn't allow the CAT through USB

I can send an MP3 if someone wants to listen to the problem.

I would say that this is a bug in 2.35, but as I said, I can't duplicate it locally.
