Remote990 is a Windows program that lets you send CAT commands across the internet to a remote TS-990S transceiver.
When communicating with the TS-990S via the internet, the radio requires CAT commands to use UTF-16 character encoding. Most well-known application programs, however, use ASCII encoding, so it becomes necessary to convert between ASCII and UTF-16 if you want the application to communicate with the TS-990S.
Remote990 is a simple utility that performs the required conversion between ASCII and UTF-16, and in effect connects the application to the radio. No change to the application program is required – you run it exactly as you would on a PC connected directly to the radio.
Remote990 has two modes of operation:
• Interactive Mode: Used to send CAT commands from the local keyboard to the remote TS-990S.
• External Mode: Used to relay CAT commands and responses between any local application program (such as Ham Radio Deluxe or N1MM Logger) and the remote TS-990S.
In either mode you can optionally record all CAT traffic for later analysis.
