I currently like the GL.iNet series of pocket routers. They are switchable between modes, including bridge mode, but can be
used for other purposes as well. They have several models that have different features, e.g. WiFi bands, speed, external vs.
internal antenna, etc.

They can be found on Amazon and elsewhere.

Try using the Winkeyer emulation and see if that solves your problem. Just use COM3/COMEXTRA
on the RRC and set it to Winkeyer. Use the virtual COM port in Windows to key Winkeyer.

Maybe this won't work, but it is worth trying.

Hi Mike,

The data is only sent when a rig is connected, so that won't work how you are doing it, At
least make a connection between the RRC's first.

I don't think you ever requested my networking checklist and did this on your own. Taking a
quick look at it, it looks like you did a good job. That would point to the most likely problem being
your router. Instead of DMZ, forward ports 13000-13003 as UDP to and see if that
solves your problem. I have helped over 300 people get their system running and it always amazes
me how some routers just don't work correct for the DMZ.

If that doesn't help, I would be happy to take a look using Teamviewer. I am on EST. Just let me know.

Mike may wish to confirm, but I am very sure that it can not connect without a rig.

Offhand, I see two mistakes:

1) You don't have the same SIP password on the RRC's. They must be identical, including large/small letters

2) COM0 on the control RRC should be the same as on the radio RRC, i.e. 57600 in this case.

Maybe I missed wrote that they are five miles away, but no internet connection. Are you
saying that all RRC's are within the same LAN? If so, then no port forwarding is necessary at all. You address
the individual radio RRC's using their distinct internal IP number and the distinct set of ports if they changed. I
would think that you would not even have to change the port numbers either, since there is no need to separate
them for the purpose of port forwards.

If the radio RRC's indeed need to be reachable over the internet, then the above does not apply. Please clarify which
scenario is correct.

To answer your other question: since each radio RRC is addressable through its own internal IP number, there is no
difference from which control RRC connects to that particular radio RRC. they can alternate the connect without any
change being made at the radio side, but can not connect simultaneously.

I hope this helped clarify your questions. Some of your terminology confused me, since you were talking about ports
and static IP numbers. You meant static internal IP numbers, which are anyway necessary for radio RRC's. Port
changes are only necessary if you need to reach the radio RRCs over the internet.


I think I can help you out:

- You can have an unlimited set of RRC's running under one public IP address. Just change the three UDP ports to
   different sets of numbers and forward these correctly in the router.

- The second EOC RRC's can also be addressed by separate sets of UDP ports. In the control RRC, you just setup a second
   profile for the other EOC and switch to that profile if needed. So no "switching" at the radio site is necessary.

Let us know if you have any further questions.

Hi Jon,

Try some of the following settings:

Rx jitter buffer size to 12
Rx jitter delay to 10

I also found that changing RTP tx mode to Continuous may help, although that causes a constant data stream.

If that doesn't help, then something in the router or even a switch is causing this problem.

The bridge connects to the wifi and provides an ethernet port. You first connect with a PC and log
onto the web site, then connect it using an ethernet cable to the RRC. That's it. They cost around $30.

This has been asked many times over the last few years, the basic answer is that the internal
WiFi card will not support networks that require a login (Radius Server), since there is no way
to enter them in a browser.

The best way is to buy a cheap external WiFi bridge that has an ethernet port and use that instead
for cases where a login is required.

You can find examples where searching terms like "hotel" and similar on the forum, or let us know if
you have any further questions.

Hi George,

I just saw your posting today, sorry.

The issues you describe are bugs in the implementation of the Yaesu Twin mode for that rig that
we discussed a couple of months ago. There is nothing in the RRC settings that will solve them.

The only solution is for Microbit to fix them with a new firmware version. Since we have been waiting
several years for this to be fixed, I wouldn't hold your breath waiting, sorry.

Hi Roger,

Then something is wrong in the RRC configuration. It should show some kind of error message if you have things setup correctly.

Drop me a short mail at dj0qn (at) darc (dot) de and I will send you my networking checklist to help you set things up correctly.

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX

Hi Roger,

I need to know what the status page on the RRC's say when you try that.

Mitch DJ0QN / K7DX


I am personally not familiar with the 7100, but maybe I can help......

Looking at the manual, I see that pressing the power button on the control panel should turn on the rig and
no button on the web page is necessary. Could you please press the power button and let us know what the
RRC's should in the status section for errors?
