I just resurrected my remote base allstar PC, hooked it to my FT-857(same commands as FT897) and I can connect to it, I can control it, read frequencies, etc. But what doesn't work is COS from the remote base radio to indicate signal. The client's repeater stays keyed. Until I send "#" to disconnect the remote command. Maybe I just don't remember right but I recall the remote acting on COS. I have modified the FT-857 to have Micom-like squelch which would make the remote really neat on hf where the users's repeater would not be keyed continuously.
Am I remembering incorrectly or is something wrong here?
And if it doesn't detect COS from the remote base radio can that be added. I have a great voice detection board I made up for the FT-897/857.
