When running a remote station the manufacturer's documentation or software
is often not what is required!
I have only tested an Icom rig once as a remote possibility and rejected it
I have run Kenwood, Electraft and occasionally Yaesu rigs remotely. My EME
station is always remote - there is no way of operating it at the actual
station without plugging a client into the LAN!
I have found that the only real way to get lots of pieces of different
software to work properly is to install a proper Virtual Serial Port
software client and use that in preference to 'bespoke' options.
I have been using Eterlogic's VPSE for over 10 years on my remote EME
station(Win XP, 7 and 10) that can have as many instances of WSJT/WSJT-X as
you like (you must disable TX control on all except one) and HRD to give me
the frequency to drive the log. Other VSP programmes do work but I have
stuck with Eterlogic's VPSE.

Subject: [Moon-Net] IC-705 + EME + WSJT-X + remote on LAN
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8; format=flowed
IC-705 drives me mad . . .
I try to put? IC-705 + WSJT-X in service for EME.
I use ICOM RS-BA1 as remote tool.
IC-705 on Wifi; Laptop Win10 on same Wifi; WSJT-X on that Laptop.
All installations (firmware, Apps...) as of ICOM documents.
I can't make IC- 705, RS-BA1, Spectrum Scope +? WSJT-X to work together.
Single components (IC-705 + RS-BA1 + Spectrum Scope or IC-705 + WSJT-X) do
I may have an issue with additional virtual com ports . . . ?
Did someone operate such a system and has configuration advice for an OM ?
