Yaesu 991a & RRC-1258MkIIs
« on: 2019-10-22, 20:50:52 »
Can anyone help me out, i am working RRC-1258 with Kenwood 480 Sat. I have just upgraded my radio to the Yaesu 991a. 

I have had a good look in the User manual for the Yaesu 991a radio's and can't find any info on how to install the setting there.

Has anyone in the forum managed to install radio OK and if so would know the correct settings in each box to work.

Many Tnanks,
Gary

Hi Gary,

The reason that you can't find it in the manual is because it is not compatible with RemoteRig.

This has been asked before: http://www.remoterig.com/forum/index.php?topic=5374.msg25396#msg25396

Hi all,
Please, can you clarify issue of compatibility between FT-991A and remoterig?
You appointed that it's no compatible but, ... with what?
My experience is that the FT-991 works OK with remoterig via standard yaesu protocol (program mode 4) and CAT commands are transmited thorough COM ports. The only and very important issue to solve is to switch on the radio on remote way. If the radio is switched off remoterig cannot wake up it as it's done in other yaesu models.
I explained this problem several moths ago but without any solution until now.
I will keep waiting.
