Thanks! I will do so!

My RRC-1258 MkII (radio side) has ceased functioning. The power supply gives 12 V, but on connection to the box, the PWR LED remains unlit. The box has disappeared from the net. It is also impossible to reach the box from the computer through Microbit Setup Manager. Well: The box is dead. Does anyone have any suggestions what to try to "resuscitate" the device?

Sorry, but I have no rotator or amplifier, so I have no quick fix to advise. I use my COM2 for the CAT to the radio (for using RRC-MicroClient). Thus I still have the COM1 free!

Yes, I have tried to connect SignaLink to the panel side. It functions, but I am not still satisfied with how I have managed to "trim" the set up. There is a tendency to lock the system in TX when I trig the PTT. (Possibly because I have not succeeded finding the appropriate sound card levels still???)

Jumpers in SignaLink set this way:

SignaLink-side           RJ-45-side (standard pin-numbers; not Kenwood/Yaesu-style)
G --------------------- 6 (GND)
G --------------------- 4 (MIC-GND)
PTT ------------------- 5 (PTT)
MIC ------------------- 3 (MIC)

(J3 in the SignaLink NOT set. I tried that too, but got only trouble with locking in TX-mode all the time.)

Speaker-cable (3,5 stereo-cable) between RemoteRig-box and SPKR on SignaLink.
RJ-45-cable into MIC on RemoteRig-box instead of microphone.
Front panel connected to TTL on RemoteRig-box as usual.

Read the manual for SignaLink very well, and be extremely careful with the adjustment of sound-card properties. At firs I did not care much about that, but then I did not get any results at all.

Best regards

(By the way - Do anyone have a set up to suggest for RRC-Micro PC-client and TS-480 so that the Remote station can be controlled by front panel in the usual way and the RRC-Micro alternatively only by changing profile via Internet??)
(Disregard this last question - I found the error: I forgot to set baudrate 9600 for communicating over the COM-port on the radio!)

Thanks! I guess you are right because I think I have tried all sensible combinations without success. But as both the 1258 to 1258 and the MicroPC-Client to 1258 functions well separately I will use either of these. If and when you find a software solution sometime in future I hope that you will publish it on the website.

Thanks for answer. But that is not exactly my challenge. It is just to combine the IC-706/703 set-up on the RRC 1258 at the controller side with the MicroPC-Client set-up on COM2 that bothers me. As a ordinary, simple setup with 2x1258 it functions well, but when I begin adding cables for an additional CI-V-set up I get into trouble. It is certainly ok to set up the speaker connection, and also the connection between COM2 and CI-V-input on the radio. So far the ordinary set-up is working fine. But then what about the MIC? When I try to wire to the MIC on the rear of the radio with a splitter (not decoupling the wire for the front panel contact), I run into trouble. I should like to run the radio without needing to do any rewiring at the radio site, just changing between remote control of my IC-703 (by front panel or MicroPC-client) just by use of the computer (reprogramming the box at the radio site). Is that possible, or do I have to change the wiring at the radio site when changing operating mode at the controller side?

For two weeks I have had a well functioning set-up with RRC-1258MkII in both ends of the internet-connection, controlling an IC-703 at the radio-side. It has not given me any problems or major challenges.

Today I got my RRC-MicroPC-Client which I have installed so that I can control the on/off-function on the radio. But when trying to control the radio by HamRadio DeLuxe (both version 4 and 5) I get an error-message telling me the programme is unable to read the frequency and to be sure that the radio is turned on. (After the programme has tried to read the frequency three times.

I am quite sure that I have written the correct settings. My question is therefore how to set up the MicroPC-client in addition to (and not instead of or altering) the well functioning RRC-1258 to RRC-1258-connection. Is that possible?
