So I've been without a VHF
for several months now sending my RS87 back and forth as it was originally DOA (!)...
I have it back now and it appears to be working.
Now, I have one issue left, I have a WR20 wireless remote
which has a VHF
function, and this also connects to the RS87.
The issue is that the RS87 does not work unless my N2K network is powered up... (i.e. it always wants the WR20 to be powered - as it is powered by the N2K network) .. if the N2K network isn't powered on, the VHF is unusable, showing a message: "Station 4 occupied" (or station 2, 3 etc...)
Surely they didn't design this piece of gear
so it NEEDS the WR20 powered up all the time right? That's just dumb.
Anybody else have an RS87 and WR20? Am I doing something wrong?
