Thanks ...but you are way ahead of me. I understand the profile setting procedure but..
I see two settings for "SIP" on the control and the radio RRCs:
SIP Port and SIP Password
Which do I change for home LAN use and what do I change it to?
I already answered that in my first point before. Nothing else changes, only the SIP contact needs to be changed.

It is really very simple:

- The only setting that will change between the two is the SIP contact

- To change the profile, just go to the active profile dropdown and change it, then submit. You may wish to
name them first.

- To save time, save the settings using the menu "export as BIN". Then import this once you switched the
profile and change the SIP contact.

Now you can toggle back and forth.

Hi Paul,

Hard to say. I am not an Icom person, but I do know that the CI-V converter must be an original
Icom one to work.

Check your settings under COM2, which is used for CAT. On the control RRC, you must have "use
COM2 for USB" set to NO if using a serial to USB converter externally. To use the RRC's internal USB
converter and only a USB cable, then it is set to YES. I also found that cheap USB converters don't
work all the well with the RRC, so you may try using the internal converter instead.

Look at the status pages on both RRCs.

You use anything that you have connected to your Windows PC. The drop down box allows you to select
whatever you want. Most people use a USB headset.

Glad to hear that all is working, good luck and see you in Dayton.

Drop me a short email at dj0qn (at) and I will send you my networking checklist that walks you through the process.

Which version do you have, A or B? Only version A has a sound card. The newer version B no longer has a sound card built in, therefore a key input.

You use the sound card that you select in RRC Micro as the input and output in your digital program.
Note that these use Windows settings, so you will likely need to adjust the settings in Windows as well.

I am not sure if I 100% understood you, but this is normal behavior.

The RRC sets up the SIP stream from the radio and that is what is used for CAT control. Therefore,
HRD can not possibly turn on the radio using only HRD and requires the RRC to be connected first.

The RRC Micro works completely differently and sets up the stream and turns on the radio by itself.

Hi Jamie,

No, I said that you should not bother to change the web ports, since you use them internally, The second
pair is just addressed using its different internal IP address.

Audio is in hardware only. Your problem must be in:

- the microphone cable
- or the cable that goes from the radio RRC AUX/MIC jack to the rig microphone
- or one of the red straps in one of the RRC's came loose
- or there is a setting in the rig that is messed-up

The SIP contact must be the IP address of the other radio RRC.

I suggest that you leave out the SIP password, since you will only be using it within a LAN.

Hi Jamie,

Yes, I am sure that is the problem with your browsers. You were trying to use a proxy server that wasn't

I am a bit concerned about the IP addresses. If the people there told you to use that address range, there
may be a reason for it. The 192.1.0.XXX range will work fine, but maybe they are managing the network.
Since you really didn't know, I can't say for sure either way.

To be on the safe side, move your normal PC at home to a temporary IP address on that 10.X.X.X address
range and see if you can configure the RRC's that way. You can do that by going to your ethernet card's
properties and double-clicking on IPv4. Then it offers a tab for a temporary IP address and you can use
the one you had on the PC at the center.

Then you should see the RRC's with Microbit Setup Manager and be able to configure them using your
browser. If not, you can move to plan B and go to the 192.168.0.XXX subnet.

Note that you must be on the same subnet either way to configure them using a browser. The default of the
RRC's is 192.168.0.XXX and you would also have to setup a temporary IP number for that subnet, unless
coincidentally your router at home assigns that subnet through its DHCP server.

If worse comes to worse and it still doesn't work, do the following: using Setup Manager, set the RRC's to use
DHCP. Then find them on the network and then browse them. Once you are finished configuring them, change
the IP settings for each RRC for the ones you need in the center. After that you will not be able to reach them
any more, but then they should work if you configured  them correctly.

You basically have two choices:

1) Buy the internal WiFi card from Microbit. Then turn on your phone's hotspot and connect
   to it and you are already there.

2) Buy an external WiFi bridge. This is cheaper, but is one more box to carry around.

There are other advantages and disadvantages to both solutions:

The internal card can only be used for normal connections using standard encryption, such as WPA2.
It will not work in public hotspots where you must first log onto a browser and click on a form,
such as in a hotel (i.e. authentication over a Radius server).

The external bridge allows you to allow use public hotspots as well. You first connect to a PC and sign in,
then move the bridge to the RRC for its use.

I personally use a small portable bridge for flexibility. The Netgear WNCE2001 I use is no longer available.
