Lost contact with Radio RRC-1258. Worked fine 3 days before.

Friend checked the unit at remote site and all looked OK. Tried a power reset but it did not solve the problem. He accessed the unit locally using Microbit Setup, and immediately we saw the problem. It had reset itself to factory settings without anyone doing a hard reset. We changed the local IP address back to and web address to, and it was immediately seen

Any idea why this happened? Only time in 12 years of service. Nothing in the product manual.

Configuration, RRC 1258 / No control over K3 via internet

Fired up the remote K3 for Stew Perry contest. It worked fine so I tried to to get TR4W CAT interface (COM0) as I usually do. When I changed the local PC COM port to the 1258, the K3 froze up. I could still hear and send CW via paddle or TR4W, but none of the controls on the control K3 here changed anything remotely... no volume control, mode, VFO, RIT, nothing.... The display stops loading when it gets to TERM..... So I am stuck on one frequency and made one QSO.... No idea what freq I am on... Turned off the TR4W interface.... Reset both 1258 units and the K3 power many times.... (I can access the remote site via TeamViewer where I can control KAT500 tuner and KPA500 Amp)..... those units work OK, and the KPA will switch the K3 band, but only to the last frequency it was on.
Any clues?
