TS-480 and RRCMicro COM 2 Port Problem
« on: 2015-04-28, 20:33:22 »
Howdy Gang - Bill K7MT in Helena, Mt.  Our TS-480 was updated to 2.85 a couple days ago and now I cannot get my ver 1.6 of RRC MICRO to connect to the remote radio. It was working great for the last two years. Com port is set for MODE 4 9600 8 n 1  kenwood terminator fd. RRC Micro is set up the same way. I can connect to the sip, get audio in out as displayed on the RRCMCRO software but no com2 with a green light to say it is connected. With out that connection Kenwood TS480 ARP-TS-480 software will not work.  What did we do wrong when the 2.85 update was installed on the remote rig to loose com 2 connection ????

I tried uninstalled 1.6 and loaded 1.7 on my XP computer and my Windows 7 Lap top and got the same results on both computers ????

Hi Bill,

Are you saying that the other functions all work OK, except CAT? Have you tested it using another RRC?

If that is the case, I bet the serial cable came loose. I have seen this happen several times before.
Updating to a new version should not change anything at the radio end.
