Generic Yeasu (mode=3 and 4)
RRC-1258 also supports the YAESU CAT protocol used by almost every YAESU radio. Then you have to use a PC-software ex. HamRadioDeLuxe or a similar rig control software at the control site. All audio and data communication goes true the RRC:s so you don't have to worry about the audio quality. No more problems with soundcards and Skype etc. And most important, you don't need a PC at the remote site.
YAESU use at least two variations of their CAT protocol. FT-2000 differs from FT-817, 857 and 897 for example. The messages to and from FT-2000 ends with a ; (semicolon) which is missing in the protocol used by FT-817, 857 and 897. When ; is present mode=4 should be used, if not mode=3 should be used.
RRC-1258 connected to a FT-857.
I used CT-62 cable. Use TTL and 8-pin Mini DIN instead. For the big radios using RS232 order RRC with RS232 port included.

RS232/TTL is not needed anymore order RRC with RS232 PC port.
When you have finished the cable production always test them with the 2xRJ-45 extender before connecting them to the RRC:s. Drawing 2xRJ-45
The web interface is used to connect or disconnect from/to the remote site. The Disconnect/Connect feature is placed on the status page.
