? serial settings for Yaesu twin setup
« on: 2013-08-14, 22:07:30 »
configuring the yaesu twins, with a computer at the control site using MMTTY.
Not sure how to configure COM 1 and COM 2 at the Control RRC and the Radio RRC.
In the serial settings setup: is both COM 1 and COM 2 set to Mode 6 at the Control and Radio RRC's ??
or is it set differently ?
please help anyone ?
thanks, Fred VE3PIE

Fred,
Fred,

Just follow instructions in the manual to set COM0 to 38400 and the radio to mode-10.

By setting the RRC's to mode-10, COM 2 is automatically set to "logical parallel with COM0",
you don't need to make any further COM port settings.

If you want to use CAT, you need to set COM1 to mode-6 and use that to pull CAT off of
the RRC. This is because the two rigs are blocking COM2 for communications between them.

Hi Mitch,  or anyone else...

Let me see if I have this straight This is all new to me:
To use yaesu twin setup with computer attached to control RRC for MMTTY and for logging program like HRD or TRX manager or DX4WIN


Control RRC settings:
Control radio:   38400 baud and program mode 10
                                      Use USB Com Port as COM0  -->  yes or no ????

Control RRC serial settings:   COM1 mode:   mode-6, CAT to COM2 (local)
                                   Use USB Com Port as COM1  -->   yes or no ???

                                    COM2 mode:  Logical parallel with COM0
                                          Use USB Com Port as COM2    -->   yes or no ???

                                   COM3 mode (USB-COMFSK):  Mode-10, Baudot-RTTY


Radio RRC settings:

Radio:   38400 baud and program mode 10
Serial settings:    COM1 mode:   inactive ?? or something else
                            COM2 mode:     Logical parallel with COM0


thanks very much for you expertise and guidance. Need clarification for 3 questions above
Fred, VE3PIE

Fred,

Leave COM0 and COM2 as NO, otherwise it won't work.

COM1 for CAT is your decision: you can use either a normal serial cable (NO),
or choose to load the USB driver and use the USB cable (YES).
