tnx Tom, very beautiful your remote setup described in the presentation you 

Mine does all the things you described not using the remoterig control 
interface, but very similar solutions: two serial to lan converters and a 
hardware sip voip channel, audio coupled to the rig in/out.

Everything works just fine, but I would like to go over that, I would like a 
hardware control with a real knob, a real ptt, some keys, a minimal display to 
read frequency...

You would answer: buy a rc2000 and you have done, yes. But, in the meaning to 
try to solve the problem homebrewing, is there any body that has already tried 

I'm thinking to try to approach the problem with a canonical PIC circuit, 
running an economical display, an encoder, some keys, and transmitting/receiving 
commands to the rig on its serial interface.

Serial interface then will be converted to ethernet (ethernet would be then 
wireless and reconverted to serial and attached to the rig.

Any suggestion is appreciated.

     I have a set running a 6 meter remote SSB remote base. Works very 
well. Dual rs-232 ports. You could use the front panel or HRD or TRX to 
control the TS-2000. About $ 450. Just make sure you test everything and 
set levels with all the boxes in one room before you go to the remote site!
