General discussion / Remoterig 1274A - bought from a friend
« on: 2019-01-10, 12:24:08 »

I bought a RRC Micro Client 1274A from a friend, together with some other remoterig equipment.
What about the license for the RRC Micro Client? Do I have to buy a new one? If yes - how does it works?

I got a new VDSL router (AVM Fritz!Box 7490) today. Now I have a problem switching ON the remote TS-480 from the Control Panel.
After pressing the ON button at the panel I hear only the "three tone". The LED on the LAN connector at the front side flickers.
Internet works. The RemoteRig Control Box is conecting. I can configure the Control Box via the Web Browser. No problem.
I can also use my Remoterig Android App and can control the Transceiver with it. I can switch ON the Remote Power Amplifier
and Rotator. No problem at all, but I can't switch on the TRX via the TS-480 panel.

Any help or idea?

I installed the Windows 10 update today. After that, my system got problems with the virtual
COM Port 4 (generated like described in the RC-1216H manual with the Microbit Setup Manager).

Windows 10 saw the COM4 as virtual port, but it doesn't work (in the Win 10 device manager you see
COM4 with an exclamation mark). So I can't use the original Expert Software - need for remote tuning the amplifier.

I was falling back to Windows 8.1 now and everything is fine again.

Is this only my problem? Or has anyone the same problem? Is this a Win 10 proplem or a problem of Microbit Setup Manager with Win 10?

... yes you're right Mike. Just found the special OM power hardware solution: OM2500A controller.
The issue has been dealt with.

is there any solution now controling the OM Power OM2500A with the RC1216?
In the manual I can find EXPERT 1K, ACOM 2000 and ELECRAFT KPA500 only.

@ Mike & Mitch - thanks for fast reply. RRC Nano App works well now in my setup: TS480, Expert 1k, Remoterig RC1216H. Now I'm waiting for the update: VFO A/B and for the first step some "F" keys for simple CW messages and the world would be perfect ...

... I tried it again with old and very old computers: no chance to get a connection via USB.

I think, I will give up now. It's a pity. The Webswitch was not so cheap, but thanks for trying to help me.

General / RRC Nano App with Kenwood Ts-480 and Expert 1k

is it possible to use the RRC Nano App with Kenwood TS-480 and Expert 1K?

The schematic of my setup you will find in the attachment.




sorry for the delay. The problem is - the computer doesn't find the webswitch as a new USB device.
There is not a problem with all other remoterig devices, like RRC-1258 MK II or RC-1216H.
When I tried it last time (one or two years ago) it was not a Problem to reach the switch via USB.
Because it was such a Long time ago, I don't know the firmware Version either the actual IP address of the switch.

Is there the possibility for a "factory reset" ?


Andy, DL5CW


just tried to reconfigure my Webswitch 1216H via USB. My Computer doesn't find the
Webswitch. In the Setup Manager I always read"Device disconnected".

Power Supply is ok, USB cable is ok and with a RC-1216H or the RRC 1258 MK II everything
is fine with my USB and the Setup Manager.

Is the Webswitch really defect? :-(

Or is there a special trick?

Hi all,

I have an EXPERT 1k FA since about two weeks. And I have problems with Transceiver CAT (Frequency Data to Logbook).

Who is using the same hardware configuration and it is works well?

I need / have: at control site TS-480 Paneel, Remoterig RRC-1258 MK II Control, Logbook LOGGER32

at TRX Site, TS-480 TRX, Remoterig RRC-MK II Radio, EXPERT 1kFA, Webswitch (doesnt play a role here)
RS232 from TS-480 is at the CAT1 Interface of the EXPERT (15 pin SubD), for Bandinformation. When I change
the band here at the paneel, the EXPERT change the band too, without an transmittin a DIT or whatever.

How I can get the Bandinformation (Frequency, Mode, clicking Cluster spots etc.) now also to my Logbook ? Do I need an Y-cable for COM or something else at the Radio site?

I - and some other friends using remote rig - made a software update to release 2.033 yesterday
(Control and Radio Side of course). Now we can't use the KEYER mode of the TS-480.
When we use CW with the internal keyer, we hear the CW tone in the monitor, but the
TRX don't switch to transmit mode. When we switch the KEYER in the RRC Control menue to NO
(it is straight key mode) and we use a external keyer (Winkeyer etc.) or Straight Key - everything
works fine. Also SSB with PTT switch works good.

Who knows the reason?

The VOX on the TS-480 is ON of course.

He offers a very good kit for rotator control.


Andy, DL5CW

Hello everybody,

has anyone a solution/idea for using two seperate rotator
interfaces ( with two rotators
and one expert 1k-fa PA with the COM1 and COM2 interface
of RRC-1258MKII ?
I have two towers (one of them with 10m and 40m beam,
the other one with 20m and 15m beam).

Any help?

73! Andy, DL5CW

... yes Detrick it is an idea.

My association is not a pure remoterig solution.
A PC at the operator (control) side would be ok.
Maybe a PC combined with RRC-1258MKII and TS-480 panel,
but also a PC with RRC-1258MKII and virtual panel is supposable.

But at the radio side a "PC free" solution is essential !
