General discussion forum / WTB RRC-1258 MKII pair
« on: 2022-08-23, 18:22:39 »
The US distributor, Ham Radio Outlet, has no RRC-1258 MKII pairs and apparently no longer carries them.

I am looking to buy a pair, new or used in working condition.

Please respond to hjohnc at gmail dot com.

You are right, my TX audio is not garbled.  Only the audio echo in my headphones is garbled.  Monitor is off.

I will try again today to isolate the problem.


Configuration, RRC 1258 / SSB Audio Echoes in Headphones

In preparation for the ARRL DX contest, I am setting up for SSB.  I only do this twice a year so it feels like starting over each time.

The setup - I have a Yamaha CM-500 headset.  The headphone plug goes into my RemoteRig client box.  The MIC plug goes into an MFJ-434B Voice Keyer and then on to the RemoteRig box.  On the Radio end, there is a cable from the Remote Rig box to the Flex 6300 microphone jack and one to the headphone jack.

The problem - I get a loud and garbled echo in my headphones of the SSB being sent.  It could be either a canned message from the Voice Keyer or just from the microphone, no difference.

I can get rid of the echo by setting Advanced > RTP tx mode to Normal.  However, I use VOX in a contest So I need RTP tx mode to be set to Continous. 

I tried changing Advanced > Full Duplex to either YES it NO but the problem is still there as long as RTP tx mode is Continous.

I am sure I am missing a parameter but trial and error have only yielded error.

Does anyone know the magic setting?  This worked last year.

Mitch -

Thank you for your help.  After trying everything I could think of I finally found the problem.  The ethernet cable to the client box was bad.  Replaced the cable and all is well.

I used the same three 13002, 13001, 13000 in both Servers. 

I can change those in the Server configuration and the Client configuration for one of the pairs.  Do I also open those ports in both the Server and Client routers?  As you can tell my network knowledge is limited.

My RemoteRig pair of 1258 units have worked well for a few years.  Now I am having problems with no audio from the Client RemoteRig box.  I have likely made errors in my configuration.

The radio is a Flex 6300.  Audio and CW keying come from the 1258s.  When connected, the keying works fine and is heard from the 1258 sidetone and from a separate receiver at the Control end.  Flex SmartSDR over Smartlink does the rig control and works fine.

What's changed?  We added a second pair of 1258s for a radio in a different building at the same site on the same network.  I attempted to copy the configuration from the first 1258 server into the second 1258 server.  I also attempted to modify my client 1258 configuration to use the second server.  I used one profile in the client box for the first server and a second profile for the second server.

The result is that all three units may have a problem with the configuration.

When I try to connect to the first server with my client several things can happen - I get no audio or I get several beeps or I get audio that then fades out completely after a few minutes.

What other information can I supply to try to fix this?

Configuration, RRC 1258 / Audio Artifacts/Crackling Sound
« on: 2019-11-08, 15:10:16 »
On strong signals (which all of them seem to be in contests) the audio from the SP jack on the front of my client box makes crackling sounds in my headphones. 

I have set the server box setting for Radio>"Codec inp attenuation" to both NO and YES. The crackling is there with either setting.

I have set the client box setting for Radio>"Codec out gain" at 255 and 220.  At 220 the audio is lower, but I increase the radio volume to compensate.  The crackling is there with either setting.

Is there another setting that might impact the received audio?
