K3/0-Mini has a built in USB sound card, see
        The K3/0-Mini comes with everything required for interfacing to a PC via USB connection.

The K3-Remote Owner's Manual's%20Manual%20%20Rev%20D.pdf says in the chapter: Loading K3/0-Mini USB Drivers

        Manual Driver Installation
        Three drivers are required:
         USB audio CODEC (Included in Windows OS and should load automatically).

I have been told on the Elecraft mailing list that Audio In and Audio Out is reversed in the K3/0-Mini USB sound card. This means the K3/0-Mini USB sound card does not work with Remoterig boxes. It seems that Elecraft is not going to correct this error.

I have considered using two Virtual Audio Cables to criss cross Audio In and Out, but so far this does not work. However Google is still my friend...

I and others have similar problems with Nano Icom and Nano Elecraft, see

Quite often my Nano apps shows the valid licence red and then after some time the app ends with 'stopped working'. After restarting the app the licence code is green as it should be.

It seems the Remoterig folks pay no attention to these old problems with the Nano apps.

My Icom remote site works with my IC-7100 control panel and the Elecraft site works with my K3/0 Mini.

See page 64 in the Users Manual:

RTP Tx Mode Control-RRC:
If VOX will be used switch on this function. It means that the audio stream is sent continuously from the Control-RRC to the Radio-RRC.

I have similar problems with nano Elecraft and Icom 1.5.0 on HTC 10 Android 7.0, see

When I start Nano Elecraft 1.5.0  and connect I get the sound from the K3 within a few seconds. However none of the controls in the Nano app on the VFO page works and neither RX S-meter nor VFO frequencies are displayed. Sometimes after 4-5 minutes the controls starts to work. However after turning the VFO the VFO frequency is displayed as a difference like 2.90 or -0000.000.001 It is now possible to press and hold where the frequency should be displayed and then the box for entering a frequency is displayed. After entering a frequency it is displayed correct and turning the VFO in the app changes the A-frequency as expected. Pressing A/B and then press and hold where the frequency should be displayed let me enter a frequency in the B-VFO, which then is displayed in line B. Now the app is more or less usable, however RX S-meter still only shows -- and BW is grayed out and does not work. Mode button works but the selected Mode is not displayed. Band button works, but the indicated frequency is not changed in the app.

The Remoterig folks should really look into these old problems.

There have been several requests for having the important Tune button for the antenna tuner in the nano app and setting Tone is needed in order to work VHF/UHF repeaters remote with Icom 7100.

General discussion forum / Re: How to change MAC adr of RRC

Tnx Mike, but I know that the MAC adr of the network card in a pc can be changed by some hacker software. Seems I should look for that if I want to test my idea. Later today I move to Marriot San Ramon where I can experience what what tricks is needed to use their wifi.

Control RRC should have a built in browser so it can be used to login to a free wifi.

Hello John,

I delete all temporary files once in a while. If you don't want to do it by hand CC Cleaner among others will do it.

Dyn DNS is for the remote site. As I understand it you get "Password not accepted" from your PC MICRO client, thus the password you have entered in the RRC MICRO PC CLIENT does not match the one in the remote RRC: Radio settings -> Sip password. Its default is hello.

General discussion forum / How to change MAC adr of RRC
« on: 2017-10-18, 17:00:05 »

I am in a hotel in San Francisco for Pacificon and want the change the MAC address of my remote RRC to match the one in my pc. However MAC adr is greyed out in the Microbit Setup Manager Setup info. Any way to change the MAC address of the RRC?

My idea is to logon the hotel wifi from the pc and then move its Ethernet cable from the pc to the RRC hoping that the hotel wifi will keep that MAC adr logged on. After that I plan not use the pc before next logon.

If that does not work I will do the usual trick with Internet Connection Sharing on the pc.

I don't see that a Dovado box in Bridge mode can solve the problem that the ISP assigns a non-route able private IP address to the WAN connection, thus the WAN connection at the remote site can't be accessed from the control site via the Internet.

The Dovado box in Bridge mode seems just to be a router with fail over between two Internet connections.

The Dovado box can do VPN, that is clients on the LAN at the remote site can access the Internet via VPN. In other words the VPN seems to be initiated from the remote site. The problem in this thread is that the control Remoterig box must be able to access the remote (radio) Remoterig box, that is the VPN should be initiated from the control site. If the Dovado box can initiate and keep a VPN open (to a proxy server) then it will work. I have not found this in the manual, is it there?

Contacted the provider, and they will not offer a static ip address unless I change to a different product and lower speed

You don't need a static IP address, just ask for a public IP address open for incoming traffic like what you get on an ADSL line. Most likely their customer service does not know the difference and won't or can't deliver a public IP address.

Like Mike says, it works changing menu options via remote. While connected I change the mike input from front to back by pressing Menu, selecting the menu option and then turning the VFO wheel.

General discussion forum / Re: Control RRC in reboot loop

Sorry for wrong guess Chris, I should have remembered "Ping settings (watchdog)" is only available in the Radio RRC, but I didn't think longer than that simple solution for a radio RRC.

>Only by turning off DHCP on the control RRC and assigning it a fixed IP address was I able to get it out of the reboot loop
Could the DCHP server (likely your router) have been assigning wrong IP setup to your RRC? In that case reboot of the DCHP server (=your router) might have helped.

I often have a fixed IP adr in my control RRC which requires me to change its IP adr, mask, gateway and DNS whenever I set my control RRC up on a new network. But then I know where to find my control RRC without using Microbit Setup manager.

Check Ping settings (watchdog) in your control RRC. If it is set to ping the wrong IP adr every 60 sec and to reboot after one try it will reboot every 60 sec.

Du kan fejlsøge på dine net med ping så finder du ud af hvad der virker og ikke virker, det må give en ide om fejlen. ping fra en router ligger typisk under System og Diagnostics i routerens. På en Windows pc kan du pinge fra en DOS boks (cmd).

Det er kompliceret med to routere og to net. Det er muligt at sætte det op med et net, men så skal ethernetkablet fra fibernet routeren sættes i en af de 4 huller til RJ-45 på din 'vanlige router' og IP adresser mv. skal sættes passende. Jeg har mit kørende på den måde, altså på et net, endda med en NanoStation M2 undervejs.

Du kan evt. vise os en netværkstegning med dine routere og enheder og deres subnet ranges ( eller, maske ( og default gateway. Så det det sikkert muligt at foreslå hvad der er galt uden at gætte så meget.

Mit gæt lige nu er at dine radio RRC ikke har korrekt IP adressse eller default gateway i forhold til det net de står på. Det kan også være at der er route ud mod internettet, men at trafik udefra ikke routes til RRC'erne. Det kan jeg ikke gennemskue uden din netværkstegning.

Have you connected the RS-232 cable to the right port on the K3/P3 and on the RRC? Been there, done that error with the same symptoms as you have.  RRC turns K3 on using a hardware signal on ACC receptacle and turns the K3 off by CAT = RS-232.

Any errors on the status pages of your two RRC's? 'UDP cmd status' could show Error for some other reason. No error shows that the RRC's are connected. If CAT (=UDP cmd) in that case is not working cabling is wrong at the remote K3.
