Operate by Remote Control!

Our George Hafler, WD8KNC, has been hard at work setting up remote control for the Yaesu 950 that’s in our station. Here’s the sequence of events and instructions as they stand. We will have a presentation by George at our July meeting for all to see.  Thanks to Bob, N8OB, for donating the remote control computer! The computer is connected and should stay on all of the time. I had a problem with the radio shack CAT interface, It just didn't work. It has been replaced. You can do Phone locally. Simply plug the mic into the radio and go for it. Please replace the computer connector in the mic jack when you are done. The audio (speaker) output of the Rig now goes to a small 4 input mixer. One output from the mixer goes to a speaker. If you turn the speaker on you will hear the output from the rig. I did this so that the volume to the remote could stay up while the speaker in the club shack should be turned down when not in use. You will need to download the remote control software named TeamViewer version 13. You can do a Google search for TeamViewer. Once it is downloaded and installed you can  login to TeamViewer with the user ID with a password of AAbb1234. The first time you do this on any computer you will be sent an email for validation. The email will be sent to yahoo mail, to user and password AAbb1234.  You will probably have to reach that directly, online. Follow the directions in the email. After that you will not be challenged again on that computer. Now when you start up TeamViewer there will be a computer named DELARAOH in the MyComputers list. Double click on it and you will be connected to the DELARAOH computer. I am leaving the FT2000RC cat control program up all of the time so you can take a look at it. It looks and acts just like the FT-950. Please don't try to transmit before you are trained on the software. I will  also put a PDF file of the users manual on the desktop so you can open that and become familiar with the FT-950. N1MM is loaded and configured. All you need to do is turn on the rig and start operating as K8ES.I forgot to mention. Antenna 2 has the 80 meter loop on it and is already tuned. To hear the CW as it is sent the monitor needs to be on and set to a fairly high level. Set the AF and RF sliders to the volume level you want. You may have to turn up the volume for the teamviewer in the volume mixer on your local system. For CW you don't need the TCPStreamer. You will be able to hear the rig using the TeamViewer Communications. It defaults to ON so you shouldn't have to mess with it. Please turn off the rig when you are done operating and ready to close down your TeamViewer session
