Xiegu radio station data communication connection setting tutorial

Release time | 2021-08-16 Source: Chongqing xiegu Technology Co., Ltd

In order to facilitate the use of xiegu radio for data communication, the connection method and settings are explained below. I hope they can be helpful.
Applicable models: x5105, G90
This tutorial takes G90 as an example( X5105 and G90 use xiegu standard 8-core ACC interface, so the connection mode is completely the same.)
1. Principle of amateur radio station for data communication:
When amateur radio stations cooperate with computers for data communication, they use computers as "modems". When receiving, the signal received by the radio station shall be transmitted to the computer for demodulation; During transmission, the signal modulated by the computer shall be transmitted to the radio station for transmission. The relationship is as follows:
When receiving: radio station receives signal → computer
When transmitting: computer generates signal → radio station
After understanding the above relationship, it is not difficult to understand the way of wiring between the two.
2. Preparation:
1) Xiegu radio universal data cable (usb-3.5mm plug), and the driver of the data cable is correctly installed on the computer.
2) One set of ce-19 expansion card (8-core ACC cable and audio cable are required)
3) Some problems of EMC magnetic ring
3. Connection steps
3.1 insert the 3.5mm plug of the general data cable into the communication port on the left side of the G90 head, and the USB port into the computer.
3.2 insert one end of the distributed 8-core ACC connecting wire into the ACC port at the tail of G90 and the other end into the corresponding port on ce-19 (there is only one 8-core port, pay attention to identification).
3.3 insert one end of the distributed audio cable into the AF con interface of ce-19, and the other end is combined with the wiring diagram on the ce-19 panel, weld the 3.5mm stereo plug according to the wiring method of the audio input / output port of your computer, and insert it into the audio port of the computer. As shown in Figure 1.
3.4 set G90 to "line input" mode. Refer to G90 operation manual for specific methods.
3.5 set G90 to the corresponding working mode for data communication.
At this point, the connection is completed.
The operation method of PC software is not described here.
The communication port of x5105 is the civ (comm) port on the right side of the fuselage, and the ACC port is also on the right side. The connection mode is consistent with G90.
X108g uses 6-core ACC port, and ce-19 adapter cannot be used. The connecting cable can be made according to the interface definition in the x108g operation manual. The connection mode is the same as G90.
The EMC magnetic ring on the USB data cable and audio cable near the computer terminal card can eliminate the interference of RF signal to the USB port and make the connection more stable. reminder:
