    Well my internet provide is Hughes Net (satellite up in the sky) service is also not that good, I am stuck with the router/receiver/modem unit they provide.
    Contact them about the issue and got a big fat no back.
    Its to prevent gammers from using up all of the satellite resources.
    The only way they could/would provide a static ip address was with a business account to a valid business address.
    Well guess what I live out in the country side with no valid business or business address, also the huge increases in service cost is not worth it.
    So I be getting rid of the Rigpi box soon can't use it for remote operation

    Hi Steve, what's positive about your location is that you probably don't have any issues setting up multiple antennas, hihi. 73 and Merry Christmas to you and your family. 73 Pascal VA2PV

    Was your RigPi furnished with a decent printed operator's manual, with charts for connection to various modern tranceivers, and a detailed step by step instruction guide ?...

    I am getting ready to simulate a RigPi from generic component parts: ie Raspberry Pi, 12 to 5 volt buck converter, USB sound card adaptor, and a frustrating assortment of splices, patch cables, head banging, hair pulling, YouTube videos and frequent reference to this thread...

    Its not very good at all compared to other remote setups like Remote Hams and WinforIcom that I run without issues. I spend hours with the MFJ and my Pi4, I have it working for all controls and local and internet but still can't get sound right so glad I only spend the money on the software to try as I figured using mumble for sound would have issues. I loaded other raspian software on my card and I think I am done with MFJ Remote.
