RC-28 Remote Encoder

W5JWP Member ✭✭
Has anyone been able to get the RC-28 Remote Encoder to work with SmartSDR for Windows? Works great with SmartSDR for the Mac, but I can't find any support for Windows. I searched the forums here and it looks like others have asked the same question with no response.

I do have the FlexControl, but I really prefer the feel and behavior of the RC-28. I like having to hold the PTT while transmitting, instead of the MOX behavior (transmitter is locked on with the first push).

    I don't know how that works, but I suspect that it uses a serial port to communicate CAT commands. Have you set up a CAT port for it yet?

    I believe the RC-28 only works with the MAC version of SmartSDR (SmartSDR for MAC only -- not DogPark SDR)
