In one of its inputs explains how to put a maneuver command at the foot of the tower and connected to the ARS-USB is used to manage antennas, for example maintenance, from the same base of the tower. The link is here:

Or in a previous entry (April 14, 2017) describes the complete system to work via moon bounce (EME):

The AS2x2 is a 2 x 2 antenna switch designed to be used by 2 Radios and where they can share their antennas. A typical application could be a contest station where there are 2 radios in the same band (RUN and InBand). By default the RUN uses the main antenna and the InBand uses a far away reception antenna.

When the Inband need to make a QSO, the AS2x2 will exchange the antennas, so the InBand will use the main antenna meanwhile the RUN will use the reception antenna, so they can still listen their QRG.

If a linear amplifier is used by the RUN, the Inband can also use it for his transmission. In this case, the AS2x2 is connected between the RUN and the Linea Amplifier.

As an option to the Interlock we have just added the AuxBox

Any any equipment that don’t incloude an Inhibit signal can use this box for the microphone and cw interconexion.

So the Mic and CW connectors are conneted to this new box and from the box to your Radio. When the Inhibit is activated by the Interlock 5R, the signal will activate the relays inside the AuxBox so the radio will not transmit.

An excellent choice for remote control of the rotator is using an ARS-USB Unit connected to a Raspberry Pi (Aka RsPi). In this way, you do not need a computer 24 hours on.

There is plenty of information on the Internet about the Raspberry Pi, therefore, the scope of this section will not go beyond basic operation and wiring of the RsPi.

Note: RsPi is a minicomputer that runs on Linux.

Wiring:

We are pleased to announce a new product: EA4TX INTERLOCK.

The Interlock device ensures the compliance with Radio Contest rules for the participation in Multi-Operator categories as M/S, M/2 and when Inbands Radios are used.

Since Nov/2012 when we designed the first unit for ED1R we have improved and increased features and performance.

This video was done by EC1KR at ED1R on 2012/Nov (spanish)

After many tests and trials with different inclinometers, we have finally selected one that works 100% fine.

From now on, we will have in stock as an option to the ARS-USB, an inclinometer which can be ordered separately. The inclinometer is one of the best options for homemade elevation systems based on an actuator – used in satellite TV.

An actuator is a system with endless motor, which allows to manufacture very robust and powerful for elevation systems, and that through this inclinometer will feedback its position to the ARS (0 to 90º)

The ARSVCOM program use an ActiveX component called: MSCOMM32. This ActiveX is used by the ARSVCOM and other programs/tools included with the ARS Product as ARSConf or Teleloader to have access to the communications port COM.

MSCOMM32 is a Microsoft module but unfortunately Windows 10 don’t support this component. Sincerely I cannot understand the reason since this ActiveX has worked Ok with previous O.S. as Windows 7 or 8.1 but Microsoft has decided not to support it anymore.

From the January 11, 2015 the problem to install the driver ARS-USB in Windows 8 – because the driver was not signed – is already solved.

You no longer need more Disabling Driver Signature, as you had to do until now and explained in the FAQs:

Microchip – microcontroller manufacturer – now provides a signed driver for a number of VID & PID. So we changed the VID & PID we used till now (VID: 04D8 & PID: F8E7) to one that is included in the new driver of Microchip (VID: 04D8 & PID: 000A).

Therefore, from the version of ARS-USB V2.3A will use the new driver provided by Microchip.

Users who want to continue using previous versions to V2.3A have to use the driver (not signed) that came before.

All these versions of the driver and firmware ARS-USB are available in the download area:
