HRD with TS-480 via RRC Serial port
« on: 2010-09-11, 04:12:00 »
Hello All:

What is the setup to use HRD with a TS-480 via the RRC serial port 1?

I connected a DB9 cable from the from connector of the TS-480 body and Comm 1 of the hilltop RRC unit.

What settings should I use?

Thanks,

Tim

Hello All:

I have configured both ends of the RRC with the same 38,400  8, 1 Off and NO rts.

I have set the baud rate the same within the TS-480 at the "serial" setting.

I have used Comm 1 on both ends of the RRC and I have set HRD with Comm 1 and the same baud rate.

What am I doing wrong?

It does NOT connect..

Thanks,

Tim

You wrote that you have set HRD to Comm 1. What is "Comm 1" - I suppose you mean Windows' port COM1. Have you checked that the cable from the RRC to the PC actually is connected to the PC port COM1 and not COM2, or COM13, or something else (Using USB-to-Serial converters, e.g.,  give seemingly random COM port numbers)?
That is the first step to check.

I assume that the "DB9 cable" is a fully wired cable.

(The next step is to check the RTS/CTS settings, but the COM port setting in HRD  should be double-checked first)

Hello Uno:

BY "Comm 1" I mean the physical Com 1 port on the front of each of the RRC units.

On the radio side I have connected a DB9 cable between the DB9 connector on the front of the TS-480 and the front Com 1 port of the RRC.

On the control head side I have connected a DB9 cable from the Com 1 port of the RRC and a USB adapter and the USB connector is connected to the computer.

The USB port is Com 2 within the computer and I attempt to connect HRD to Com 2 within the computer.

No joy..

Hi Tim,
my guess is that you have used incorrect cables between radio and RRC
check one of my drawings I posted on this forum.
Check first if there is communication with only the cables connected between PC and TS-480
running HRD, if this is working proceed to the next step where you connect the RRCs in between them
If it is not working then I suggest you to buy a breakout box where you see the communication between
comport and the radio,
