The BEST Solution  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I have tried many solutions to remote control my station with marginal results for years. I have tried home brew thru Remote Rig I was not satisfied until I came across Remote Shack and John.

One problem is the lack of support dealing with offshore vendors. With Remote Shack this is surely not the case. When they advertise 24x7 they mean it and have always come through. From initial setup, which was a snap, though the final complex setup I am currently running John and Remote Rig were there.

I am running and remote controlling the following:
Yaesu FT-2000D/ FTDX-9000D
Yaesu Quadra Amp
SteppIR DB-42, DB-18E, BigIR Vertical/ 80 M
G-2800DXA Rotor
GS-232B Computer Interface
Epiphan VGA2USB VGA to USB Converter, Frame Grabber

From Remote Shack:
RBC-212 Remote Base Controller
Rotor Y Control Cable
2 RBC-PSS Serial Switch
CM-1 Computer Microphone Interface
Computer Audio Interface cables

You cannot go wrong buying from John. He stands 100% behind his product and will take immediate action to solve any particular configuration you may have.
What else can I say?

Neat addition to RBC-212  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The CMI-1 works great and the support from John Troy is wonderful. The device works fin with a Panasonic cordless phone and allows me to enjoy my Yaesu FT-897D from anywhere in the yard.

Great So Far!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I received the CMI-1 yesterday along with the Remote Shack RBC-212 which had the firmware upgraded.

Plugged the CMI-1 into my iPhone and it is working great.

This really makes a great addition the Remote Shack for use in the car!

Get one now at the introductory price of $189.

Product support by the way is second to none!
