General information about the project (brief)
« on: 2009-01-04, 23:11:42 »
This remote control setup i basically an internet based extension of the separation cable between radio and front panel (e.g IC-706) allowing the operator to connect his front panel via an interface to the remote radio using virtually any internet connection.

It uses SIP, which is IP-telephony standard, to make the connection between the interface boxes on each side of the network. It will negotiate via a STUN server so both sides know the external IP addresses used if NAT routers are involved.

UDP ports used are:
5060 = SIP, standardport SIP. If you already use IP telephony this *might* be a problem.
11000 = RTP, Sound
12000 = Datachannel, Serial comms between front panel and TRX.

So, here is what you need to do:

Get a ICOM separation cable. Cut it in half. Connect each half of the cable to RJ45 connectors using these diagrams:

At this stage the interface boxes and cabling can be tested using  a crossover RJ45-RJ45 connector

If everything works, then the interface boxes need to be configured (assuming firewall / port forwarding issues have been solved)

Configuration will look like this (page in Swedish for now)

So, now you're up and running. You can work Phone, CW and digimodes using the RJ45 connector on the panel (IC-706). More on this later.

Interesting? Post a comment in the forum.

The foreign language parts of this forum will be updated if there is enough interest.

IC-7000 is only possible to control via CI-V CAT from HamRadioDeLux for example.
The screen information on IC-7000 is produced by Video signal.
