IC-785x ?
« on: 2021-11-30, 20:34:36 »
Hello,


After some surgery and being restricted to stay at home, I finally set-up my RRCs in my local network today using an IC-7100. Seems to work, except for CW which apparently needs an additional cable from RRC-Control to the rig when using the built-in keyer. Now, the 7100 does not have an exceptional receiver. Is there any possibility to use an IC-785x as backend? Or an IC-7300? If so, what must be done/is needed? Having lots of time currently, so thinking a bit further.. Any comment appreciated.

Just configured mine yesterday and having the same issue.  Any luck?  I am usig ic7100 as well, it appears as if it is working properly on the control side but radio is not sending.

Thanks

Finally found out how to enable CW keying on an IC-7100 that's linked via 2 RRC devices: On the RRC-radio side, go to IO settings and select "Keyer" in OUT2 mode.
In addition, set the CW side-tone generated in the RRC-control to something like 45 in the Keyer settings / Side tone -db box.
