New Remoterig
« on: 2012-03-31, 06:45:01 »
I need a small sized remoterig with micro USB connectors and software controlled wiring matrix (no jumpers anymore)
it should have a 80211n WLAN and Ethernet Connector.
Audio I/O over USB for digimodes, so you have to connect just one single Wire.
Bluetooth Pairing with Headsets, Wireless USB optional.
it should fit on the backside of the TS-480 Head Unit, if possible with an li ion accumulator.
the goal is to use the remoterig in a car with UMTS connection and unplug a simple dc connector, and use them e.g in a ham meeting (restaurant)
or something else, without a ghetto of wires and other weird things.

I built my own. It contains a battery and WLAN adapter. That is part of the
fun in amateur radio!

Hi

It's dangerous  to make something specially for a rig like for example TS-480. The day the development is finnished, they can close down the production. You never know in advance
But there will be a WLAN card  that can be placed inside the RRC-box available in a couple of month

I have several installations with the TS-480 that I use, so I hope it will be quite
a while before that is obsolete. If the K3 Twin with K3/0 had been available a
couple of years ago, I bet a lot of people would have used that instead. Hopefully
Elecraft will come out with a smaller "head" that will make this more portable. The
problem is there is nothing more on the market with extra control units sold.

It will be great to get WLAN available in the RRC box, we need to get things shrunk
and consolidated a bit more.

well you can use such a thing with adapter mount plates (and wiring) for any other radio.
afaik remoterig is a great success, and it needs a great successor especially for mobile usage.
you could call them remoterig nano go

Now, THAT'S what I'm liking.  Nice work, Mitch.
