I'm not getting the jist of your message, Milton.

The rig is 45m away from the control head and works fine as far as operating the rig goes.  I use it all the time.  It is better to run a signal cable up to the roof that RG8!

I want to program it from an embedded PC in an adjacent NEMA12 cabinet, about 30cm way up in the boiler room.

The PC is controllable from the apartment five floors below using SSH, but I don't want to start x or vnc since they suck down too many cycles and kill my feed to liveATC.net.

It would be nice if it programmed via the mic jack, I could walk over to the cupboard in my apt. and hook up my laptop!

does that help to explain my situation better?
