TURN ON K3/0 Mini REMOTELY
« on: 2019-09-05, 23:05:27 »
HELLO

I want to know if itīs possible to turn on remotely, maybe through local remoterig box, the radio that I use for control side, Elecraft K3/0 Mini

I will travel, but I donīt want to carry my control side equipements (K3/0 Mini, remoterig, paddles, Mic), so thinking that if I can turn on my K3/0 Miini, I can do CW with N1MM+, using TeamViewer to access my control site laptop.

I donīt want to keep the radios ON for a week, so I need to turn on it anyway

thanks!

Jorge,

There are always methods to do that, but easiest would be for you to get a RRC Micro PC Client:
http://www.remoterig.com/wp/?page_id=28
Then you can run N1MM on the control PC, use a remote paddle, run data modes, etc. and will not to have a
PC running at the radio site.

Hello Mitch

this is very interesting!, will look for some Youtube video to see how it works

But, no time for this now, i am leaving tomorrow.

Is there any way to turn on the control radio from 192.168.0.169?

thanks,
Jorge

Jorge,

The K3 does not turn on using a CAT command. You must use the ACC2 connector on the back, which the
special cable is going to now for the RRC remote control. It would be possible with some wiring on a new ACC2
plug if you have the time, using the schematic in the manual for the DB15 plug and a remote relay of some type.
