Elecraft K4 with RemoteRig
« on: 2022-06-16, 18:01:20 »
Hello,

Has anyone tried to remote an Elecraft K4D with a RemoteRig using a K3/0 Mini? The commands for K3 and K4 are to a large extend the same, so it might be possible that a K3/0 Mini will be able to control at least some basic functions of the K4.

If Remoterig can power the K4D ON it should be possible to transfer audio and use Win4K4Suite to manage the K4D through the serial connection provided by Remoterig. However it would be better to use a K3/0 Mini for the basic functions where the commands the the same in the K4 and K3.

Hi

When the  K3 twin setup was developed a separate ( faster and more simple) protocol was defined between the K3/0 and K3 which is NOT the same as the standard CAT protocol. So I doubt that they have implemented it in the K4

Tnx Mike, I thought CAT was used K3<->K3. Seems I have to wait for the Elecraft VK4 software or try Win4K4Suite and one of the many ways of transfering audio.

In this video https://youtu.be/WZvGW7HvgYM?si=h2AanuIBZHulzScX Eric from Elecraft says at 5:05 that RemoteRig boxes works with K4. Since I have RemoteRig boxes and an Elecraft K4D I would like to have them working together. Has the software been updated since last year?

Tnx Mike,

That means that RemoteRig RRC 1258 does not work with an Elecraft K4D though Eric from Elecraft said is does?
