Getting back to putting a HF remote on the air…Using a FT-900 Yaesu rig, which, by the way, uses the same command structure as FT-100. So setup as a ft100 and voila, works. But there is next to zero documentation for the remote commands except for maybe using a radio as a V/U remote. So far I can recall rpt.conf memories just fine, I can set freq, interrogate, jog freq. But I have a stumbling block in the rpt.conf memories. Typical structure:
00 = 146.580,100.0,m
01 = 147.030,103.5,m+t
02 = 147.240,103.5,m+t
03 = 147.765,79.7,m-t
04 = 146.460,100.0,m
05 = 146.550,100.0,m
I have been able to do HF freq like this:
00 = 014.280,100.0,u
01 = 007.290,103.5,u
02 = 029.620,103.5,m-t
;03 = 147.765,79.7,m-t
;04 = 146.460,100.0,m
;05 = 146.550,100.0,m
If I end the string with “m” I get simplex fm, then -t or +t gives offset.
I tried a “u” at the end and got the freq USB mode. Great. But cannot figure how to get lsb, or am.
Anyone able to shed light on it. I’ve stared at the source code I compiled from and the answer isn’t jumping out at me.
I’m using the FT900 because I have it and don’t want to tie up one of my FT857’s. Plus the 900 has an excellent tuner. Oh yeah, that function works ok too.
I was trying to use hamlib but that is much more problematic. It works but too many handles to pull and buttons to push to set up. I compared CAT commands of ft100 vs 900 and was amazed it was the same with minor differences that are of no significance.
