ICOM RS-BA1 Remote Control Software.38
Now press the “P” button to confirm the settings. If everything is OK press “F1” on the remote control software to continue. You now reach the program menu from where you can change programs and memory locations on the transceiver. The F1 key opens a menu similar to the setup menu and the F2 key opens the RS-BA1 setup menu.
For reasons known only to Icom, the software does not initially recognize the serial port data and it has to be told what port it is. So after turning on the communication rig (getting a serial connection), and then running the software for a short while, the software will discover the serial port and then ask you for the standard port name. You should then be able to follow the on-screen instructions to configure the rig. You will have to do this for each rig that you wish to control remotely.
When the rig is in operation, it can be used with a simple two-way IR protocol. No IR transmitter has to be attached to the receiver (this would have been a little silly anyway). The remote control software can receive IR signals from another remote control and then control the rig accordingly. There is a one-way IR protocol as well, for setting the volume. Setting the volume is easy, as you simply make sure that the sound level meter is to the right of its 8 settings. Then you press the button. If the remote control is IR-enabled, the meter will move to the right. If the remote is speaker-only, the meter will move to the left. This is a feature of the Open Source ALSA audio driver and is very simple, but you do have to understand what you are doing.
then we have the common controls, which is the third screen that is shown on the base station display. here youll find the previous ranges of the radio and a status message. once again, pressing and holding the button will keep the screen on the current screen, but pressing and quickly releasing will skip directly to the next. the language indicator is always in english, however, so youll have to unlock it in the software to change the language. the major control i had hoped for is the display control, which icom does not include. it doesnt provide quick button control of the heads up display, so if youre switching screens quickly, youll probably lose a lot of time trying to figure out where you are. you do have the option to display the heads up display (hud) on the base station for up to 3 heads, which are the sections on the top right side of the base station display that displays information such as bearing, water temperature, and so on. the problem is that up to three heads will occupy an entire screen, even on a 4 inch phone. you might want three heads, but im not sure how often that is the case. likewise, the heads up display (hud) is always in english, and if you want to change it, you have to go through the software. this seems to be a common problem with many icom vhfs, especially the 3200 series with the four inch display. however, it should be possible to add a nmea 2000 0183 (at least) external connection to the base station, but so far, i have not been able to figure out how to use the pdc output of the m510 module. remote utilitymakes it easy to send serial data and receive audio from over 1000 us and international stations. the program can even pass through the audio and talk back to you along with station audio, music and even morse code. it can also analyze all of the us ssb and cw signal strength including bpsk and dqpsk. its easy to use and its easy to set up, just launch the program, tell it what frequencies to connect to, then send serial data from another program like radioinfo and it will do the rest. the easy to use graphical interface makes it easy to set up remote control software on any vhf or uhf am and fm radio with an rs-232 port. so besides a hf rig, i can control the vhf/uhf pmda-5 and ub-99 and ub-99r which i have set up on most american transmitters, as well as the vhf/uhf aprs stations which i have set up on receivers which also have built-in, open-to-anyone monitoring software. 5ec8ef588b
