Title: AS-1289 Automatic switching via ICOM 7100
Post by: mikewings on 2019-02-12, 15:50:51
Hi.. I have an ICOM 7100 running remotely with RemoteRig 1258MKII and that has been working fine for months now.  I added an AS1289 for remote switching antennas and it is configured and working manually fine as well.  I am having trouble getting the 1289 to switch antennas automatically via the frequency selections.  Is there a good way to debug this .. I am a little uncertain of the CI-V configuration.  I do have an MFG antenna tuner connected to the 7100 via the remote Tuner Control socket if that makes any difference.. I think I have all of the parameters set correctly but since I am somewhat unfamiliar with just how the 1258 controls the radio, I could use a little help.

Hi
You connect the CI-V interface from Radio-RRC Com2 to the Radio-CI-V port. The CI-V interface has to be proper one with separate power supply.
Radio-RRC Com2 is set to mode 2 and a baudrate that match the radios CI-V baudrate. The setting for ICOM CI-V in the AS-1289 is quite well explained in the AS-1289 manual.
