RRC Micro on cruise
« on: 2018-02-10, 01:13:26 »
Does anyone have any firsthand experience using the RRC Micro on a commercial cruise ship? The staff advised the latency was 700ms but I would prefer first hand real world reports from users

Tks

Neil,

That would indicate a satellite connection. It is basically not possible to use RemoteRig over a satellite
link, due to the latency. It will drive you crazy, even if you can manage a connection. SSB will have huge
delays and CW basically not possible to use.

Hi Neil,

I think you should find a few others on the forum if you search it, since it has been mentioned several
times that it doesn't work via satellite. I tried using Skype from a cruise ship and couldn't even get that
to work. I never bothered bringing RemoteRig stuff along.
