No Audo - Cable/jumper Settings
« on: 2015-07-04, 15:31:41 »
I am a bit perplexed. I have gotten most things to work. Radio communications, RX audio and CW, but the SSB audio is not working. I have looked at this a few times. I am using the RRC-1258MkIIs with the FTdx5000 on the radio side. I am using just a computer on the control side.

I followed the pictures for the jumpers and they look like they follow the same path as the boards pictured in the manual, The cables I made for the AUX/MIC inputs were made from CAT 5/6 wiring. I was looking at the generic or 2000 pattern. I only hooked up 5-8 (PTT & MIC).

When I am looking at the jumper configuration. The front of the unit is facing me. So Pin 1 is all the way to the right and Pin 8 is to the left on the socket. Since there are only four jumpers, I am guessing that these are the only pins used.
Here is my Jumper Settings:
Back to Front
4 - 5
5 - 8
7 - 7
8 - 4

If I am reading the cable wiring right:
CAT Wiring Side - Radio Side
1 - Orange Stripe
2 -  Orange
3 - Green Stripe
4 - Blue - Pin 7
5 - Blue Stripe - Pin 8
6 - Green - Pin 6
7 - Brown Stripe - Pin 6
8 - Brown
The tab is on the top side (like shown in the pictures).
Do I need the rest? All Do I really care about any of the other connections?
Does VOX work remotely?

Hi Will,

Pin 1 is on the top right when looking from the side where the back is just to the right. You may have it backwards.

You need to have RTP set to continous on both sides to make VOX work.

Hi Mitch,
I am guessing you are talking the about the  RJ-45.

No, Will, I mean the strappings in the socket.

Then I have it right. I am going by page 22 of the manual.
The notch is the side that shows Pin 1 on top,.
The picture shows the RJ-45 below the socket
I had the pin number wrong for the lower side.
They must be using the RJ-45 numbers
4 - 6
5 - 5
7 - 7
8 - 4
I have UTP set for continuous.
Will have to trace it out to see if it has continuity.

Yes, I was doing that out of my head. I found the red straps only reliably make contact
when I use  needle-nose pliers and hold the strap just above the end of the insulation,
then push straight down with the pliers. When I did it by hand, I often had problems with
continuity. Good luck!
