Finally found out how to enable CW keying on an IC-7100 that's linked via 2 RRC devices: On the RRC-radio side, go to IO settings and select "Keyer" in OUT2 mode.
In addition, set the CW side-tone generated in the RRC-control to something like 45 in the Keyer settings / Side tone -db box.

Configuration, RRC 1258 / Re: Icom IC-7100 CW not working

I'm having the same issue as the one reported. Everything seems to work but CW using the internal RRC-control keyer. I plugged the paddle into PAD in RRC-control and run a cable from RRC-radio PAD to the IC-7100 back-plane connector. I played with several settings on both RRCs but it won't key the radio. CW tone is generated on the control side.
Any chance to go through the configuration with me to find the culprit setting?

Hardware, Cabling, Installations / IC-785x ?
« on: 2021-11-30, 20:34:36 »

After some surgery and being restricted to stay at home, I finally set-up my RRCs in my local network today using an IC-7100. Seems to work, except for CW which apparently needs an additional cable from RRC-Control to the rig when using the built-in keyer. Now, the 7100 does not have an exceptional receiver. Is there any possibility to use an IC-785x as backend? Or an IC-7300? If so, what must be done/is needed? Having lots of time currently, so thinking a bit further.. Any comment appreciated.

Hi Mitch,
>You can use any program over the RRC that you use on your local PC to control the radio.

Ok. Well, that's basically my question. Which ones exist that show a frequency and a knob? Currently, I'm not using any software to control the radio. I don't need really fancy stuff, just changing bands and a VFO would do. Maybe I get something done myself.
>Note that you may prefer to buy the radio RRC with a PC Client instead of the second RRC.
Yes, but as you said, phone only and that's not what I want to do. If it would be CW only or CW included, I'd would fit just fine.

Hi folks,

I'm new to this and before I really get into it, I'd like to know which control software for the remote PC side can be used? Is there a list somewhere?

Basically, my set-up would be 2 RRCs and PC software on my side because I don't own a radio with detachable front side, except for an IC7000 which is not supported. I will not use digital or phone modes while being away from home, only CW.

HRD Log seems a bit overkill and became buyware. I'm not willing to go that way since I have my own logger. I found that some people where talking about the N4PY software. Anything else that could be used to switch bands and move the VFO? That's basically what I need.

I'm wondering, since I can read the frequency/mode from the rig with my logger, if I send the command to the rig, am I right in saying that the (Icom) command is sent transparently to the home station? If so, I could probably start trying to add my own radio control module.

Plenty of questions from a newbie since I haven't seen a live remote rig set-up and only tried to understand what's available on this site.
