Hi Juan Carlos,

The instability issues are usually caused by Windows and can often be solved by making some changes to the
Windows settings. See the following excellent presentation by N6TV for tips on how to make the changes:
https://www.kkn.net/~n6tv/N6TV_Dayton_2020_Everything_USB.pdf
The relevant part starts at page 26.

I hope this helps.

Hi Juan Carlos,

It should work. You need to make sure that in the RRC serial port menu that COM1 "use USB com port as COM1" is set to YES.
Is it set correctly? If the FTDI converter is being used, then it needs to be set to NO and maybe you forgot to change it.

No problem, Juan Carlos.

My mail is dj0qn (at) darc (dot) de.

You are not very clear as to what audio you are referring to.

Assuming that you mean the control RRC's SP jack, then that audio is set to a constant output and can not be changed anywhere. The only solution if that is what you are referring to is to add an amplified speaker, such as computer speakers.

Hi Kari,

I have never heard of that problem with the web interface. I assume that you changed it from
80 to something else to prevent the normal and expected port conflicts with port 80.

You problem is obviously at the radio side. It could be anything, even a bad switch. I suggest
systematically trying to locate the problem. You are wasting your time if you look at the RRC as
the problem, I believe.

Kari,

If you didn't change anything, then the problem is not with RemoteRig. Something in your
network environment has changed. Did your provider change something? New router? Is this
problem from multiple user locations, or only one?

A tip: you can just logon to your radio RRC over the internet and click on reboot. No need to
physically take power off of it until you find the problem.

I could have used RRC COM1, but I used a Webswitch and also Lantronix serial server. Both use
straight serial cables.

Sorry, Juan Carlos, but I guess you need to change the controller. I used to have the Prosistel
controller with RS-232 and it worked great.

Hi Juan Carlos,

A USB converter will never work. You can only connect a real serial cable to an RRC.

Hi Neal,

Sorry, I misunderstood you on the null modem cable.

It is not possible from here to figure it out, I'm afraid. It is extremely rare to have an RRC
that is defective in that way, but it does happen. I am not sure if anyone in your area has
a similar setup to help you out.

I though the radio RRC was at K0RF's QTH, but I guess you must have one as well. If you need
any further help, just email me at dj0qn (at) darc (dot) de. I won't be back in Florida before
November this year.

Assuming the RRC settings are correct, then it should work. There must be something that was
overlooked.

You said that you had an Elecraft null modem cable. I could only find part number E970297 in the
Elecraft manual, which is a straight-through RJ45 to DB9 RS232 adapter. You would still need a null
modem adapter if using that cable.

I only see these three things as possible causes, assuming the RRC settings are correct:

1) Serial adapter cable not null modem
2) Baud rate wrong
3) Control RRC COM2 "use as USB" set to YES instead of NO

If all of these are really correct, then perhaps there is an RRC setting wrong. Since I don't have the radio
RRC's settings or your full settings, I can't verify them. Easiest would be to have someone in the group save
their settings to a BIN file and send it to you to load.

It must be something simple. Is the CAT speed (RS232 menu) set to the correct baud rate in the K3s? It
should match that of the control RRC, which should in turn match the radio RRC and K3 radio.

Look at the serial settings page. Is COM2 "use as USB" set to NO as it should be?

Neal,

The only difference between the K3 and K3s from this standpoint is that the K3s includes a USB interface. Maybe you have that connected to the RRC? You absolutely must use a "real" serial cable between the K3 and RRC to make it work, so use the standard serial port instead of the USB one if that is what you are doing.

Hi George,

I can't answer your question as such, however I can let you know that there are a number of bugs with the
Yaesu Twin configuration that have been mentioned by me and others over the years. The list I gave in
http://www.remoterig.com/forum/index.php?topic=858.msg3457#msg3457 was never resolved as well
as http://www.remoterig.com/forum/index.php?topic=1390.msg5831#msg5831

I gave up and switched to a K3 Twin when available and have been happy ever since.

Dual receive should work. You need to set the radio RRC's radio settings for "audio dual-rx" to YES. The RRC
also must be at least a version 5 to support dual RX, although that was released a long time ago.
