After replacing my router with a Google Wifi mesh system I am able to connect either through the lan (  or, after opening ports, through the remoterig DDNS service. Unfortunately, I am unable to take the control to a different location to try it. May I assume that if I am connecting through the Remoterig DDNS I will be able to do that from anywhere?
Thanks, VE7GTC

Thanks Mitch. I eventually figured out the problem. For some reason the profile setting on the radio remote reverted to Default. I'm not sure why that happened, but as soon as I set it back to my custom profile, all was well again. I'm still curious, though, what those tones indicate, as the only tones I have ever heard before are the SIP error tones.

My remote has stopped connecting. Powering on the TS-2000 with the RC-2000 gives about a half dozen solid tones (sounds like EU phone system. I keep expecting someone to answer!). No other untoward lights or sounds. I am at the control end. Any thoughts?

Thanks Mitch. As far as I can tell there is no frequency lock function on the RC-2000, just a full lock function.  That said, the manual indicates that frequency lock would still allow you to go through the settings menu, and I cannot do that. I had someone do a full reset, and that made things worse as it did not solve the problem and now HRD, which would change the frequency, doesn't connect due to baud rate, cat port, blah, blah. I'm sure it's not the Remoterig and it will just have to wait until I can get to it. Thanks for your help.

I have a tuning problem with my TS-2000. First, let me say that this may well have absolutely nothing to do with the Remoterig. It could be a radio, or even internet problem. Unfortunately since I am at the remote location, it's pretty difficult to troubleshoot. The problem is simple to describe. I am at the remote location with the TS-2000 control head. Everything works perfectly EXCEPT the tuning knob does not tune. As a result, it is impossible to change frequencies. Also, it is impossible to go through the menu options because that requires turning the tuning knob. It is as if the radio were in lock, but it is not. It will, however, scan. I'm open to all suggestions as I will not be at the radio for another 2 months.


Never mind. I fixed it. Thanks

I have been controlling my TS-2000 remotely using the RC-2000 remote head for several years without problem. Normally, I push the power button, there is a quiet beep, and the radio comes to life. Today, I pushed the power button, there was a quiet beep, and then nothing. The control head did not power up, and the radio at the remote location did not power up. The SIP light is solid yellow, the power light is solid green and I double checked the strapping to make sure all was tight. Any thoughts?

I have the same problem with the same radio (TS-2000 and RC-2000). My solution was to purchase an amplified speaker. Nothing else worked. It seems to me the problem is somewhat recent. I don't recall having it last year.

Thanks, Mitch, but that didn't do it, but now it comes back as soon as I turn the volume lower without delay, so that's an improvement. Thanks for the suggestion.

I noticed a strange anomaly after setting up a new installation yesterday. I'm using an RRC-1258 MKII and a TS-2000 with a remote head. I noticed when I turn up the volume on the remote head  (louder than comfortable) the remote head shuts down. The RRC control is still functioning properly, and the speaker and transmit still work, but since the control head appears off, I can't change frequency of access anything on the radio.

I have tried a different speaker and a heavier power cord  to the power supply (30 amp supply) and that didn't solve the problem. I put a powered speaker on as a workaround, but just curious on other peoples thoughts.

General discussion forum / Volume Control Issue
« on: 2014-11-06, 01:52:53 »
Hello All,

I am using the RRC1238 Mk2 S with 2.80 firmware. I remote a Kenwood TS-2000 in Canada, and I am in Hawaii. I have a minor but somewhat annoying problem with volume. The TS-2000 has a main receiver and sub receiver with separate volume and squelch controls. The sub receiver works perfectly, both volume and squelch. The main receiver does not. The squelch works properly but the volume control makes little or no difference. There is always some volume. I have tried to lower the volume with Ham Radio Deluxe, but turning it down to zero makes no difference that way either. My workaround now is to trn the squelch up all the way, but I would prefer it would work. Any ideas?

Thanks!   Gus  VE7GTC  K2GT

Assuming the TS590 has some of the same features that my TS2000 does, I would lean that way. If you are using HRD for rig control, as far as I know you will not be able to power up or off the IC7600 remotely, as you can with Kenwood stuff (at least my TS2000 and TS480 work that way). For remote power up, I use a WEMO switch for my amp. It is available at Home Depot, and will turn an AC socket on and off and can handle up to 1500 watts remotely assuming you have an ipad or iphone. Sorry, I have no experience with Ten Tec stuff.

Thanks Mitch. This morning I sat down, opened all 4 boxes and went through the jumpers. Even though I had used needle nose pliers, there was at least 1 loose jumper in each box. The I got 2 separate regulated power supplies (I had been using one for both) and reconnected everything. Problem solved! Now to add the wireless board to the new unit. I may be back...

Recently I have been told there is a fairly loud hum on my remote signal. If I do not use the remoterig but use the radio directly, the signal is clean. The hum is on all bands, HF through VHF. I have replaced virtually every part of the system (except the TS-2000) including a new remoterig system (both radio and control boxes) new cabling, power supplies, and microphone. Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks for the help. Problem(s) solved. While looking for an IP conflict I realized there was a second router, once used as a bridge, still running. Unplugging that fixed the network issue. Next issue turned out to be a defective Kenwood cable from the control head to the 1258. You guys got me pointed in the right direction. Thanks again.
