Connecting to FT-857 via RRCMicro
« on: 2018-02-05, 11:14:37 »
Just installed the trial version of the RRC Micro software to try out with ham radio deluxe for control.

I use a FT-857D with remote control head normally, but I want to be able to connect from work and control.

I've managed to connect, RTP goes green, but the indicator bar doesn't show anything, so no audio buffering. Not sure what I am doing wrong there, and can't find troubleshooting steps on this.

I try to open up Ham Radio deluxe, and select COM3 (what I selected in the RRC micro PC com port setting) and I only get three baud rates options, one is not 64000 which is my COM0.

Do I need to use a separate cable from serial of the RemoteRig to the radio? What a pain, that's a 200km round trip drive, and I don't have one of those cables. I thought it was possible through the front TTL connector?

Yes you need a CT-62 interface between the RRC-com2 and the Radio. ANd the interface must be a genuine which is powered from the radio or from an external source. The RRC do provide power
