Bi-directional RemoteRig?
« on: 2016-01-25, 21:13:21 »
Good evening all.

I guess I have a unique situation, but lets see?

I have a remote station with nice antennas and a nice amp.
I have a QRP station in the UK with a single antenna that I use for all the relevant RSGB contests on behalf of my Radio Club.

Ideally I would like to operate either station from either location.

Both locations have a K3.
Both locations have a MicroKeyer II
Remote location has an amp (SPE 1K-FA)
Remote location has a beam and computer controlled rotator (SPID)

Do I need 2 RemoteRig systems or is there a way to use them in a 'bi-directional manner (recognising I need webswitches at  both sites?

Hi

No it's not possible. The Control-RRC and Radio-RRC are different. You need two set and some switching stuff to change the direction of the connection cables

Many thanks  Mike.
Much as I suspected!
