Hi,

I am contemplating purchasing Remote Rig to operate my ICOM IC706mk2 at my other QTH.  I am just looking for a basic no frill setup to run SSB,  my antenna will be a mutiband dipole so no need for a rotor or antenna switch.

I am planning on modifying the ICOM separation cable and I understand the instruction so that is not a problem.  Also I am planning on  using the Wifi adapters in both remote and radio units,  BUT is it easier to use the LAN port ??   I want this setup  as simple as possible

So my concern is once I getting the units working on the remote network at my current location then I move the radio side unit to my other QTH, what changes do I have to make to the remote and radio side units??  is there a "cheat sheet"  or any easy instruction ?,  I have never done this before and it seems a bit intimidating.  If there is some kind of step 1 step 2 etc cheat sheet someone has it would be appreciated.  My current location does not allow antennas so hopefully this works out

Need a fool proof setup,  QTH's are far apart so impossible to run back and forth.

thanks, Kurt W1WWA

Kurt,

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

That was the problem. I put NO on the auto connect and everything is well now. I'm gonna check your list for the remote setup and see if I can get it going. Thanks Mitch for all the help.

Thanks again Mitch and Mike

I changed the COM2 mode to mode 3 in both boxes and matched all the baud rates and it is now happy and working...still using the COM2 serial port with an external USB adaptor just because I happen to have it. I am only using this archaic FT1000 as a remote radio because my TS-480 is in the hospital for a week or more.

You may recall Mitch that I have the Ubiquiti WiFi installation on the high rise roof location. Works great but local noise is an issue sometimes. Having >100 local neighbours will do that.

Hi Dave,

I was referring to radio mode-3, Mike added comments on the serial port mode.

I am not sure why you are using a USB to serial adapter and not the internal one, but if you insist,
then it will only work when "Use USB Com Port as COM2" is set to NO. This was obviously your problem
as you described seeing two virtual ports in Windows, which can not be used in that configuration. These
ports are only for when you use a standard USB cable.

Hi

The FT-1000 CPU is very slow so a CAT message can be splited in several small parts, To take care of this set "char timeout" to 60 ms at the serial port settings
