IC-7100 won't connect
« on: 2013-09-26, 05:30:34 »
I used to have an Icom 706 working on the RRC's. I now have a 7100. I have changed the wire jumpers per the manual, and changed JMP2 to open on the RRC-Control box.

When I push the power button on the control head, nothing happens.

I also have CW announce for the IP address on......on the IC-706, it played through the speaker connected to the control head.
On the 7100, I do not hear the CW IP address through the control head. If I connect a speaker to the RRC-Control, it sounds out the CW IP address.

Any suggestions?

I have tried this with both firmware 2.72 and 2.74. Neither worked.

Hi Charlie does the rig work when you connect the head to the body direct without RRC?
it is one of the easiest to setup so check again your settings there must be something wrong.

Hello Guy:

Well, it seems I had a bad CAT6 cable on the control side.  ::)  I replaced it and it works FB now.
I have the new firmware 2.74 installed on both ends. Do you know how to use it with the Micro RRC?
I'm not sure how, as the baud rate for CAT is set at 34000, and the maximum in Micro RRC Client is 19200.

I can get the Micro RRC to connect but no audio passes to the PC.
It works fine with other radios I have set up.
