very sad... I'll work on a homebrew panel with a big rotary knob and configurable steps... ;->

no one like me?

General discussion forum / RC 2000 - 0,1KHz step
« on: 2011-12-04, 21:27:14 »
I'm using for some months the RC 2000 device, remotely controlling the Kenwood TS2000. I need help in configuring the RC2000 (and the TS2000) in the way to have a frequency step of the RC2000 rotary knob equal to 0,1KHz, that I like in SSB operations.
I am able to set 1KHz or 0,01KHz, but not 0,1KHz.

73, Steve.

I do so:

at the remote site I have a PC running the remote service of HRD, connected to the radio via serial port and have the remoterig (radio site) conneted to the TTL port of the radio (RC2000 display port)

at the control site I have a PC running HRD connecting to the "remote" PC and have the RC2000 display connected to the remoterig (control site) TTL port.

Doing so I noticed that the radio control via the control PC running HRD is more reliable than connecting across remote rig serial link. Don't know why, I think the reason is something due to timing signals.

My connection speed is > 2Mbit over a wireless link.  (ping about 1-2ms).

73, Steve

bought the subject of the topic: an RC2000, sorry for the misunderstanding, 73

Bought one few months ago, in Italy:

73 de IW1RDZ - Steve

If it works with signalink, then it would work with "nothing" else than a PC with soundcard connected to the audio of the remote  RRC. I have done some experiments in my past setup and I notice that it work harder then locally (there are 2 audio processes: analog to digital then analog again and these processes could cause loss of information - not so bad for easy human listening, not good at all for information bit transmission - depends on audio coding). 

I don't know if the problem has been solved, anyhow I post my setting on a local network (wifi link):

Control side:   used COM2

configured as mode-3 char-timeout
baudrate: 9600
data bits: 8
stop: 1
parity: 0-off
terminator: 0d  (see yaesu gs232 specifications)

Radio side: used COM2

configured as mode-3 char-timeout
baudrate: 9600
data bits: 8
stop: 1
parity: 0-off
terminator: 0d

Tried locally with HRD rotator program; remote side: LVB tracker (yaesu GS232).


I received Remoterig yesterday and still wainting for the rc2000 display from customer to use with my ts2000. I already have a remote station with two computers and now I have started to configure the remoterig devices and to build the cables.
My setup includes a G6LVB interface (LVB tracker) to control a yaesu rotor (that has not native rs232 interface). The LVB tracker has a serial port that I plan to pass over the link via one remote rig serial port (now it is connected to a Tibbo serial to ethernet converter and the local computer interfaces to it using a virtual serial port generated and connected to the remote converter by the Tibbo software tools).
I suggest to try to connect all the devices in local lan on a table,  to find out where the problem is.
Start with testing serial cables directly connected between PC and rotator control device, then try to connect the PC serial port to "control remoterig" serial port and rotator device serial port to the "radio remoterig" serial port; connect the remoterig on lan. Then try to configure the remoterig serial port, probably as trasparent. That is what I have in mind to try for me, I have not already experimented, so don't know if it is right.   
I let you know my results.  ;)

Regards, Steve.

thanks for answer, yes you're right, now I use with no problems Tibbo converter rs232to lan to control rotor via HRD rotator program and a fantastic homebrewed G6LVB board. Tibbo devices are fine, after having configured them...
For sure, an integrated solution as Remote Rig, is probably better for my ham radio activity; at least I hope, having not received them yet.

Even if no one has answered  :'(, I think I'm right  :).

Anyhow I bought a couple of remoterig and RC2000 kit to do the work without computers.

Now I'm just waiting for the devices.  ;)

I have a remote rig since some years over a wifi 5km link. I started with "supermarket" standard "b"  wifi devices with modified TV dishes, and during years have had a lot of upgrades in devices, till now that I have a similar setup to the remoterig concept.
I use two SIP hardware phones from grandstream, capable to call to each other without a PBX, interfaced to the audio of the TS2000 and a headset.
I have a Tibbo RS232 to LAN converter to interface rotor, I have two PCs with ham radio deluxe, hardware PTT over a HRD serial link.
On local network everything is fantastic, very reliable, delay near to zero.

Now: I would like to add an RC2000 display to improve control and probably two remote-rig  devices in future to delete al least the remote PC; I saw that remote-rig  device provides a TTL connection for the RC-2000. The question is: now, without a remoterig device, what should I need to connect RC-2000 over lan? I think a TTL serial over lan converter.
Something like: a local TTL converter to RS232 levels, a serial link over lan and another RS232 to TTL level convert on the remote site. Am I right?
