I have used the Webswitch 1216-H for rotator control since last year.  A month ago, the lower 75 percent of the compass display suddenly disappeared.  The indicator and all the buttons are visible and are working properly, but I am missing most of the compass.  What would be the solution to this one?

Thanks, Mike. Follow-up question:  If I have set N1MM with RRC COMExtra to COM3 for Winkey, do I need to set COM2 Mode to Mode 8?  I tried to make that change several times, but after reset I still had COM2 Mode as “Logical parallel with COM0”.  I can’t tell if I am using the Winkey emulator or not.

What are the settings to use a bug instead of a paddle via the RRC1258?  I could not seem to find a definitive statement in the user manual.

Mike, RRC at the control side has been set for continuous RTP.

I use N1MM Logger to send stored CW messages in contests.  For SSB contests I want to send stored WAV files.  I obviously have the WAV files in the correct directory--when I hit F4, I can hear my call in headphones connected to the headphones jack on the computer, but the audio is not getting to the mic input of the Remoterig.  The mic of my Heil headset is working fine.  I need some advice, I'm clearly doing something wrong.  Do the I/O settings have to be changed?

General discussion forum / Remoterig MkIIS Yaesu Twin
« on: 2021-09-17, 17:15:41 »
Is this a new product with amended software for Yaesu Twin operation?  I have my FTdx-5000's operating in Yaesu Twin, but still have certain radio functions that do not seem to pass via the RRC.  My remote unit is S/N 13733.  I have two control units, S/N 13802 and S/N 6954.  All are MkIIS units.  Is the Yaesu Twin version different, or is it just the internal strapping that determines the "gender" of the box?

I see a couple of posts by members using this amplifier.  I would like to connect with anyone using that amp with an FT5000.  George VA2EBI-W1EBI

What exactly is the subtle difference between Mode 6 and Mode 7?  I've read the user manual, but I am having difficulty understanding the explanation.  Since I use N1MM Logger at Control RRC COM1 to control the radio, what different functionality would Mode 7 provide?

General discussion forum / Problem with mic input
« on: 2020-10-23, 19:23:57 »
I assume the RRC wants to see a dynamic mic. My Heil HM10 keys my control FT5000 directly. The Heil push button mic keys the remote radio through the RRC, but that mic is not useful for phone contesting via VOX. However the same HM10 will not key the remote radio via VOX. What could be my configuration problem?

Thanks, Mitch.  I am using v2.95, Ver 7, HW 8, Build May 4, 2019, so it's a new pair of 1258's.  I am hindered because the Remote unit is truly remote and I can't get there in person due to Canada border protection.  I need to have my VE friend in Quebec check the Audio left/right ch swap setting.  As for Shift and Width, I don't understand at all why these functions don't transfer.  And my chief issue at the moment is a momentary total break in receive audio, like a loose cable.  One break lasted thirty seconds.  I'm trying to trace it to remote end internet, local internet or even my own radio receiver.  Other than that, I'm loving my remote radio-life!

Is there a mic cable available for the 3.5mm mic plug on my Yamaha headset?  Looking for 3.5mm to RJ45.

Hi Mitch, nice to hear from you.  Let me check this out.  It was painful getting the RRC's connected and working, but I'm on the air--more or less.  Several things to work on, but I'm making DX QSO's in CW.  I have a feeling I'm going to be back to the Forum.

Configuration, RRC 1258 / Help configuring RRC for new user
« on: 2020-02-03, 19:39:34 »
I have used a RRC for a K3/0 connecting to RemoteHamRadio stations in the New York area.  That was several years ago.  I am now working to set up a pair of Yaesu FTdx-5000's in a Yaesu Twin remote network from my Control location in Massachusetts to the Radio location in Quebec.  I purchased a new pair of RRC's and the Yaesu Twin accessory pack.  I downloaded the Setup Manager and I'm looking at the DOS screen after connecting one of the new RRC's.  My home network consists of a Linksys ACS router behind a Verizon router.  The IP address of my PC is not the standard 192.168.1.xx.  When I connected one of the new RRC's to my pc, the Autoconfig IPV4 address is quite different, and there is no Default Gateway.  And I don't know the IP address of the network in Quebec that it will be connected to.  At last, my question:  how should I change the IP's of the new RRC's for the Control and Radio end of this planned remote network?
