Digitrax UR91 & DT100R Problems

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Wiring for DCC : One Thread

I have recently purchased the Digitrax Chief Radio Starter set. Wow is it cool. However, I can not seem to get the DT100R to operate in radio mode. I am using 6 wire digital phone cable to connect the UR91 to my DCS200. I have installed a fresh 9 volt battery in the DT100R. When I have the DT100R tethered via the jack on the UR91, everything works great. When I disconnect the DT100R the green LED on the UR91 indicates that it is receiving the radio commands but nothing happens on the layout. The red loconet LED on the DCS200 does nothing. I have read the manual for DCS100 (this is what was packed) and the DT100R. DO I need to enable a function on the DCS200 to use radio control? I am confused and any help would be great.

Thanks Matthew Taylor Coon Rapids, MN

If you happen to have another throttle plug it into the LocoNet, if not make a small pigtail of an RJ12 jack and short cable, connect pins 3 and 4 together, cut of all other remaining wires, pins 1,2 5,6 make sure they can not short out. Now you will have only a RJ12 plug and a very short cable with just pins 3 and 4 connected together.

Plug this into the LocoNet at or close to the DCS200. Your radio should now work.
