Control VFO Not Tracking Radio VFO
« on: 2017-10-10, 21:52:14 »
I was operating remote this past weekend.  I had intermittent problems maintaining communications with my radio from the control radio (K3-twins).  It would work fine for a few hours on Saturday then lose communications and the control K3 would freeze.   Turning off the control and turning it back on got things working again.  My two 2116H's have no problem at all.  I made 400 QSOs in a contest Saturday in spite of the problem.

Sunday is a different story.  The control K3 freezes up almost every turn of the VFO.  I can still hear the audio and can transmit (COMExtra port works) but you cannot change frequencies (COM2 port) and my logging program is in a disconnected state except for WinKey.  I rebooted the control RR-1258 twice, rebooted the computer multiple times, shut off and restarted the control K3 multiple times, and shut the power at the radio site multiple times to restart the remote RR-1258 and the other 2116H controlled switches.  All with no help.

Does anyone have an idea where I can troubleshoot further?   

Thanks, Art - VE3UTT / W1AJT

Art,

The problem is likely with a router. Try restarted them on each side.
