Anyone have experience with Elecraft KPA500 & remoterig?




I am using TS-480 and Mix-W software. CAT is working ok via com2. When I work PSK, I can manual activate PTT and audio from PC via the microphone jack and all works ok. However, when am using PTT via CAT Command, the radio do KEY to TX but no audio is transferring.

Do I must use the PTT via mic jack send the Audio?

General discussion forum / TS-480 cat issues
« on: 2012-10-23, 11:24:37 »

I am using TS-480 and RRC + MixW software and have two issues:-
1.    CAT is working ok when Radio is connected locally / directly from computer to radio via FTDI USB to RS232 adaptor connected only with 3 wires. (pins 2,3,5/ TX,RX,GND). However, via RRC (com2) it don’t work. Changing between pin 2&3 did not help to solve the problem.
2.   I know my settings are ok, because changing to different USB to RS232 with full d-sub connector CAT is working ok. However, here is got a strange situation that when I push Microphone PTT (SSB mode) the radio is sending short beeps every 1/2 sec..
When is am disable CAT the beep stops.
I attached here a zip sound file so you can listed to the scenario

Any idea??

General discussion forum / Audio breaking
« on: 2011-03-04, 21:33:20 »
After some learning curve explore in earlier posts was able to get all items to work in remote site and home site. The configuration is as follows:
Remote site – TS480 Radion connected to a 3G router 7.2Mb always on. Good connection to 3G network (0.5km)
Control site – TS-480 Control panel connected to a cable router 2.5Mb
I can get the radio working and made some qsos. My problems are as follows:-
1.   The received audio is breaking every 3ced and not smooth.
2.   When I am transmitting and releasing the PTT the receive audio is like totally distorted for 2-3sec and only then i can here the station.
3.   When transmitting some stations are telling me my audio is breaking.
I pinged the remote site from the control unit router for your ref. Also the radio/control configuration is  RX Jitter buffer 4, Jitter delay 3,  audio packet 20ms

What is the next step?


I have an issue connecting the 480 panel to talk with the radio in a local lan using same router.
My Linksys Router IP is
I have updated control units to FW 2.33.  All my cables work OK.  When trying make connection within my LAN, the TS480 panel does not power up and after a few seconds I receive from the panel a tone  low - high - low, low - high -low, low - high- low. 
I was reading some similar posts issues here, tried some, but still cant get the system to work

Can someone help? I am not a IP person so please be patient with me. I attached a picture with my IP readings.
