DDUtil or not? 6500+KPA500+KAT500
I have used both hookup methods and while each work, I'm confused when running remote.
Method 1: connect both the Elecraft boxes to the 6500.
Method 2: connect both the Elecraft boxes to the PC and run DDUtil.
In the shack, both methods are great. BUT, when running remote from my Mac at work with SmartSDR or waiting for someone and checking in on my iPhone or iPad, I don't see anyway to change the amp status. I expected that since the radio knows that there are two devices connected that it could control those devices. IF the amp is in use, I likewise don't know its power output, just that of the radio.
And when the Elecraft boxes are connected to the PC, the remote control computer or iPad have NO idea of their presence.
I thought that maybe connecting to my shack computer via Microsoft Remote Desktop would work as I'd be controlling the whole shack setup like I was there, but my HP/Ryzen computer shipped with Win10 Home and Pro is needed to do remote desktop. If I was sure that spending $99 would make this all work, I'd do it in a minute.
Does anyone here use Microsoft Remote Desktop to run their shack when away from home?
