Hi Fred,

I only use the magic, I didn't create it  ;)

Mike should explain that if you want more detail. BTW, this is an example of questions that come up from time to time
so anyone thinking about asking a question on the forum should search it first.

That's right, Palle.

Mode-7 essentially duplicates CAT on COM1, so you can run or sync other programs or devices that way.
You can do so on either side of the link over COM1 and it also does not have to be the same baud rate as
COM2. Your virtual Y-cable, only better!

As I understand the question the problem is the same as I have. At the radio site there is a 'local' pc which should be able to control the K3 via CAT whenever the RRC is not in use and that without switching cables. After all the remote operator can't switch cables. The RRC (COM2) and the pc is connected to the P3 serial DB9 connector (RS232) through a Y serial cable. This does not work for me.

Mitch, is your idea to connect the 'local' pc at the radio site to COM1 of the radio RRC and to connect the radio RRC COM2 to the P3 as usual? Then the radio RRC is working as a logical Y cable if set to Mode 7?

As far as I know a Y serial cable only works in one direction, that is when one master sends to several slaves, but I would like to know if anyone has a solution for a Y cable at the radio site.

Hi there,

Finally got both boxes to to be seen at radio side and work ok as a test. But for some reason can't find at now.

Would anyone have any ideas how i cant find the radio side or is there maybe a fix in RRC Control or Radio side.

Thanks Mitch. It worked at once. What is the difference between RTP Normal/Continous, if you may.

Fred,

Set both RRC's RTP TX mode to continuous to make VOX work.

Hi Guys.

I am testing a remote station in my house. So using LAN at this point.
The radio is a TS480 with remote head. Using the configuration  in the manual regarding Radio. It is working fine on CW and RTTY. On CW I use BK-IN (Vox on)
On SSB, it works fine with the stock microphone when the microphone's PTT is pushed. It does not work under VOX. With VOX ON the radio does not go to TX in any circunstance.

I have tested the head connected directly to the radio and VOX works fine.

I suspected it could be an issue with the mic jumpers (MIC GND issue) and I have tried jumpers for new and old TS480. Same behavior. I am not sure when the unit that I have has been manufactured


Any light on this is appreciated

Thanks Fred PY2XB

Thanks Mitch,

Will try and visit radio side today and change the two jumpers about shown in picture.  Hopefully this will solve my problems here with newer version of TS 480 Sat

Hi Andreas,

I am not sure if I understood from you what works and what doesn't.

Du kannst mich eventuell direkt anschreiben und das genauer erklären an dj0qn (at) darc.de.

Hi Gary,

That is usually caused by a network problem. Alternatively, check the power supply.
