I forgot to mention to make sure that both RRC's are set to mode-7.

Hi Will,

You can also use the RRC's COM1 in parallel with COM2 for CAT. Just change it to mode-7 and away you go.

Hi Fred,

This has been covered on the Forum before if you search it.

You need a different version of the client that has been available for years, but may still not be on the SPE site. I can send it to you if you need it via email.

Are you using one or two TS-590?

That was important missing information.

Then Mike at Microbit needs to address the problem.

Nothing new, but what are you waiting for? RemoteRig has had Winkeyer support for several years.

Just go to the serial settings on the control RRC and change COM3/COMEXTRA to Winkeyer and make
sure that a USB cable is plugged in. Go to the Windows Device Manager and see which port was assigned
to that serial port and use that port number in Win-Test as a native Winkeyer.

There are probably two different problems:

VFO control: did you setup CAT on the rig using a standard serial cable to COM2 on the RRC?
That is required for Nano to work.

Audio: double-check the audio cable between the rig and RRC. Make sure the correct audio
output in the phone is turned-up. I suspect that since you can't control the rig's audio control
since CAT is not working, that you can't raise the volume on Nano either.

Then I guess Mike will have to contact you about repair, or you should contact HRO if you
bought it from them.

Hi Chris,

That is indeed strange. I have seen dead power supplies, but never two of them at once. Resetting the RRC will
never make a difference, because this would be a hardware issue.

Did you try using a "real" 12v power supply? There is a cable included in the RRC box. This would then verify if
the problem is with the PS or RRC itself.

Hi Ned,

Glad that you are making progress. These things can be hard to find, I can tell you lots
of stories   :'(

Hi Joe,

Drop me a short mail to dj0qn (at) and I will send you my networking checklist that explains
the setup procedure.

The SIP password should be in both units. I think you are confusing it with the SIP contact, which is
only in the control RRC.

Anyway, my checklist will go into detail if you want it.

If anyone needs help or has questions in Dayton, I will be available at the DARC booth about 50% of
the time (across from the ARRL). Otherwise, you can contact me at 424-288-9171.

RemoteRig does not exhibit in Dayton, but their products are available at HRO.

Hi Pete,

There are two serial server COM ports available on the RRC's. In "Twin" mode, like what you are
using, both are already being used. Therefore, you need to find another solution. Any yes, the
COM ports can either be set to use USB or standard cables, but not both at the same time.

There is the Microbit solution that you will find at:
and also the more generic WebSwitch will do the job:

I personally use standard serial port servers, such as from Lantronix. They are relatively inexpensive
and work great. You use a standard rotor control program over a virtual serial port and not a web

« on: 2018-05-04, 02:53:33 »
You will find instructions in the RemoteRig manual, pages 94-95 & Appendix B.

An external keyer interfaces as a straight key, so a straight key could be used in place of a keyer.

In therefore highly suggest that you go through the checklist once again and this time carefully read it.

- If you are using an adapter cable, then of course the Microbit drivers will never show up. That only works when you
use a standard USB cable like the one that came with the RRC.

- If you do use a converter cable, I highly recommend that you use one based upon the FTDI chip. Other ones
often don't work.

- You absolutely must use a standard serial cable on the radio side between the TS-480 and RRC COM2. A USB
to serial converter cable will not work.

Maybe this will help you find your problem.
