Hi Franco,

It really wasn't a suggestion, I was just quoting from the manual. Since it works one way, it may work the other. Just try it and see.

The other way around works for sure, see page 54 of the RC-2000 manual:

"CONCERNING THE TM-D700A/E PANEL
The RC-2000 control panel can be used in place of the
TM-D700A/E panel. Switch the TM-D700A/E OFF then
remove the TM-D700A/E panel. Plug the RC-2000
panel and press  (POWER). The RC-2000 panel
automatically detects the TM-D700A/E transceiver and
will operate the same as the original TM-D700A/E panel."

It has been over two weeks since I posted my problem. I still haven't received a reply, nor have I seen an update that may fix my problem.

I am about to head-off on vacation in a couple of days and had ordered this early to be able to use while I am away. Any possibility that I can get it working before I leave?

No, that combination is not possible, sorry! The price difference is not going to be significant enough to make that a decision criteria.

An update on availability of the TS-480 heads: Japan is taking longer with the order and production as was hoped. It will likely now be October until the heads are available. I was hoping to bring some along from my trip to W6 this month, but that just won't happen.

I spoke to a local German dealer about this, and they are also contacting Kenwood to see if they can order the heads as well. They would like to attach onto the U.S. order to get the heads produced at the same time. More to come.

Mike,

Are you back from vacation yet and can fix the PC Client or otherwise take a look at this problem?

Thanks & 73,

Franco,

It is hard to say, because:

a) I do not believe that SPE has shipped any of these yet, so I doubt that anyone has tested this out.
b) They don't have a download area for manuals

It would probably be best to post your question on the SPE Yahoo Group, or write Dante or Gianfranco a mail directly and ask him.

Mike,

I understand that you are still on vacation. When will you be back and be able to fix this bug in the client?

I bought this now to be able to use while on my own vacation starting in two weeks, so hopefully I can get it working by then.

Hi Steve,

The Icom IC-A/E2820 is supported, according to Mike's list.

I discovered the debug checkbox on the bottom right and looked at the log. I believe that I found the problem, which is a bug in the client software. Here is the connect request:

Request [transactionID='z9hG4bK-2857f1baa9454e83938052e5bdd3bbbc';method='INVITE'; cseq='1'; transport='UDP'; size='510'; sent '192.168.2.102:5090' -> '92.230.71.67:5060'.

As you see, the request goes out on port 5060, even though I told the client to use port 5090. Either both ends should be port 5090, or it should allow you to enter ports for both ends.

I tried a potential work-around, which would be to define the radio IP (Contact) as e.g. 92.230.71.67:5090, but the client doesn't allow the port to be entered in this field (is logical, because of the port field directly underneath).

As I stated before, I can't use port 5060, since SIP VoIP is hard wired into the routers on both ends (plus it would be common in other routers while roaming).

I received my PC Client dongle today, but can't seem to get it to connect. I always receive an "error 408 request timeout".

It is actually really straightforward, so I can't imagine what the problem could be. The only set-up difference from the RRC-1258 box is that I needed to add a "SIP realm", which I did on the radio end as well. The only difference in my installation is that my SIP port is set to 5090, since 5060 is already used by the routers on both ends. My firewall is not blocking the PC Client app.

Has anyone else managed to get this working?

Thanks & 73,

I believe it also has a serial port as well.

That is correct, George, but I was told that this was not public information yet.

Availability is in another couple of months.

Sorry to hear that you are still having problems, even after making the long trip to the remote site.

Again, your description of the problem is virtually identical to the one I had, except that I didn't test it with a dummy load before I solved it. I neglected to mention that the problem with the strapping was at the remote unit and not on the RF side. I assume that you checked the strappings on both units, but wanted to mention that. You may wish to replace the MIC GND strapping, just in case. I couldn't see or measure the problem before I did.

My experience is that the RRC is very insensitive to RF. I did some quick RFI testing at the time by sending high power CW with the TS-480 through my SPE Expert into the SteppIR parked on the roof only about 4 meters above the RRC without a problem. I killed the DSL modem and had other strange things happen at that low height, but no effect on the RRC.

If the strappings wasn't the problem, then hopefully Mike or someone else can offer some advice. I hope that you can solve your problem, because this is really a great solution!

Dave,

I had a very similar, if not exactly the same problem.

It turned out that one of the straps (MIC GND) was not all the way in the socket, which wasn't visible to the naked eye (at least my lousy naked eyes). It could be that it came loose in transit, or I just didn't push it in all the way. I ended-up replacing the strap, since it was bent a bit. They seem to fit best when the are in a straight arc. Either way, I would check there first.

General discussion forum / New Feature Wish List
« on: 2010-06-16, 18:17:03 »
The RemoteRig is really a great and innovative product, and everyone that I show it to wants to buy one (if they didn't already). As with every successful product, everyone seems to have a wish list of new features they would like to see included in new firmware versions, or even hardware revisions.

I have seen a couple of suggestions spread throughout the forum, but thought I would start a topic to suggest a couple and let everyone fill in the rest with your ideas:

- Save and reload settings. This would enable you make a backup, share a RemoteRig installation more easily, etc.

- Multiple server settings. This would allow you to switch between multiple server installations.

- Ability to use a SIP software/hardware client. This would allow using RemoteRig without having to carry the remote head and maybe the 1258 box with you. This could be using either a PC at the remote control site with remote control software such as VNC, or you could connect a serial port on the 1258 to the CAT on the rig and control it with software locally that way by only carrying the 1258 box along. It may be that this is already possible and only the settings need to be documented.

- Not exactly a device feature suggestion, but for me the weak point of the product is the documentation. Even though I am a native English speaker, I completely misunderstood the current documentation on some points. I suggest that a wiki is started to improve the documentation and keep it up to date by the user community. An excellent example of this can be seen for the Win-Test documentation at http://docs.win-test.com/wiki/Main_Page

So let's see if some others have further suggestions.
