Microbit 2.0 is the company name I guess you mean the Microbit Setup Manager program

Im afraid that if both the USB interface and the Ethernet interface is not working it's not much more to do, It's not possible to replace the CPU or the Ethernet PHY to a resonable cost

General discussion forum / Re: Pairing RRC-1258 MKII

There is no pairing, you can use as many Control-RRCs and as many Radio-RRC you want. The only limitation is that only one Control-RRCs can be connected to a  Radio-RRC at the time but as soon as one user PWR off his TS-480 panel another can connect to the same radio by power on his panel

Hello there can anyone tell me is it possible to pair 2 RRC-1258 MKII control side tougher with radio side. I have pairs of RRC boxes the radio box is 5 miles from me.  The control is in my living room plus one in the bedroom.

Can you tell me if let a friend have the second box and his own Kenwood 480 would i be able to share the radio side at the same time when he is located over 400 miles from me and radio.

Kind Regards,
Gary

The DCU-2 controller is documented here:

https://static.dxengineering.com/global/images/instructions/hgn-dcu-2.pdf.

Per page 8 of the manual, the DCU-2 protocol is the same as for the DCU-1.

So we will order the DCU-1 adapter :-)

Mike,

I tried to different laptops with Microbit 2.0 running and when I plug in the USB from the box I get a usb device not recognized or not working properly error. Do you have any suggestions there?

Thank You,

Jack

Mike,
I certainly do not mean to disagree with you and I appreciate any help you may have to offer but it is strange that when I used to power up the radio box, the green light would blink 3 or 4 times until it connected to the network via the CAT-5 connection. Now it immediately shows solid green but I cannot get into the box via network or cable.

Thanks,

WA7HJV

Hello Mike,

The Red and Yellow do not light at all under the above conditions and the Green power light comes on immediately and stays on instead of blinking until it syncs up as it did for years previous under the same conditions.

Hi

If the CPU is not running the RED and Yellow LED is ON and PWR LED is OFF.  What you describe looks like everything is normal

HI

I have never heard about a DCU-2 protocol, do you have the spec ?

to connect to a rotor using DCU-1 protocol the adapter

Configuration, Webswitch 1216H / 1216H and DCU-2 rotator controller
« Last post by W4AFK on 2021-02-25, 05:41:41 »
Hi again ... we have been using the 1216H + 1216L to control an old HAM-IV rotator controller.

We just got our hands on a new rotator and a DCU-2 digital controller (bought and took down a tower/antenna from another ham who was moving).

- I understand that the 1216H doesn't need the 1216L when using a DCU-1

- Can we use the same procedures to connect the DCU-2 as I read for the DCU-1?

- Any special instructions (I read this post: https://www.remoterig.com/forum/index.php?topic=1632.msg6905#msg6905)

Looking forward to responses
