The Remoterig RRC-1258MkII is developed specially for remote control of Amateur radio stations via the Internet, in and user friendly and cost-effective way. The Remoterig units are used in pairs, one is connected to the radio and the other is connected to the control equipment. The system is unique in the way that no PC is needed, both voice and data communication is handled by the two units. RRC-1258MkII can be configured to work together with most Amateur radio stations available on the market from ICOM, Kenwood, Yaesu and Elecraft.
The Remoterig system fits very well in the following situations:
– You are not allowed to put up antennas at your home.
– The noise level is to high to make Amateur radio activity possible.
– You want to build so big antennas that can’t be done in urban areas.
– You do not want to be dependent of PC:s for the remote control.

The Remoterig system it self will not introduce any latencies and the latencies introduced by Internet will rarely be any noticeable problem. The Remoterig system also includes a unique solution for operating CW over Internet, with among other things a built in CW-keyer. The Remoterig system is connected to the Internet primarily via 10 or 100Mbit Ethernet and fixed connections like DSL, Cable and WLAN. 3G based mobile solutions will also work, sometimes with reduced performance. The system is portable and you can use it from almost any network connection in the world. Session initiation, audio (VoIP) and data is transferred using standardized protocols like SIP, RTP etc. where you can select different audio qualities depending on available bandwidth. The RRC-1258MkII is easily configured via modern USB and WEB based user interfaces.
You will get the ultimate function of the Remoterig system together with radio stations with detachable control panels like Kenwood TS-480, TS-2000 or ICOM IC-706. You simply replace the cable between the control panel and the radio with the Remoterig system. You will get the same feeling and functionality as with the original setup. The system also works very well for more traditional remote control from PC-based control softwares like HamRadioDeLuxe etc. The Remoterig boxes solves the voice and data problems but you need a PC for the Control software it self in this setup
