RRC-Nano is an App for Android which makes it possible to remote control Ham radio stations from a Smartphone or other Android devices.
This is the first public version which we now release to check if there is an interest for this product. The functionality is limited to the basic functions.
If you have a Remoterig Radio-RRC connected to your Kenwood via a CAT cable from COM2 you do not need to do any changes in the Radio-RRC.
IF you have a TS-480 which you only connected trough the TTL-port you have to connect a RS-232 cable from COM2-to the Radio CAT-port, and add settings for com 2.
The Kenwood App is only tested with TS-480 but it only uses the generic CAT commands so it will probably work with most Kenwood radios.
Elecraft K3 and KX3
If you have a Elecraft K3, KX3 or a K3 twin setup, connected via a CAT cable from COM2 you do not need to do any changes in the Radio-RRC.
If you have a ICOM connected via a CI-V interface from COM2 you do not need to do any changes in the Radio-RRC. If you have a IC-7100 which you only remote via the control panel you have to connect a CI-V interface like ICOM CT-17 from Radio-RRC COM2 to the Radio-CI-V port. You also have to set up COM2 to mode 2 (ICOM CI-V) and set the same baudrate as you have set the radio to (for example 19200 baud).
The ICOM App is designed with focus on IC-7100 but it uses generic commands so it may work with most modern ICOMs like 7000,7200,7600,7800, 756ProIII etc. Remember that IC-7100 is the only one which can be switched ON/OFF remotely.
Don’t forget to set the CI-V address to the same as set in the radio..
The Yaesu App is only tested with FT-950 but it only uses the generic CAT commands so it will probably work with most modern Yaesu radios like FT-2000, FT-5000, FT-9000 and later models. It will not work with the FT-1000x and FT-8×7 models which uses the old version of Yaesu protocol, We plan to add support for them also later
