Control Head TS-480 and Dongle/Software
« on: 2013-07-08, 05:19:04 »
Howdy from Bill in Montana.  Is there any special setting to set up the remote rig on a TS-40 so one can use the control head/Remote rig box or a Dongle/software ????  Right now the Control Head is work fine and when we tried to use the Dongle/software everything locked up on the remote site and control head cannot lot in !!!!  I will have to go up to the remote site and reset the Remoterig/Radio tomorrow...

I think I got the information correct in that a Control head/Remoterig and a Dongle/software can be logged in at the same time but only the Control head/Remoterig can control the radio. When he logs off, the Dongle/Software can now control the radio???

Thanks  Bill Erhardt K7MT Helena, Mt.

You only have to set up com2 to mode 4 with the right baudrate settings in the Radio-RRC nothing else need to be changed, You also need to connect a CAT cable from COM2 to the TS-480 cat port. You can alternate between control panel and RRC-Micro but not connect them at the same time. The Radio RRC never hangs up, if you cannot reach it it's because of something else probably the router or modem.
