Yaesu radios config files

Post by yo3ggx » Wed Nov 26, 2014 2:36 pm

Hi,

Please use this thread to post your own config file for any Yaesu radio. This will help the other users. Most popular functions will be added to the default radio config file included in the package.

Thank you,
Dan YO3GGX

Hi Dan. Just bought the App (the +Version) . Great App. For all in Forum a Question. How to get ft 857 S Meter and SWR to work. Or RPT Mode and changing ctcss /dcs codes. Anything possible?

Hi,

In the current version, the configs file contain feedback settings only for the following transceivers I own myself:
Yaesu FT817
Yaesu FT450
but is explained in the user guide how to add freedback for any tranaceiver by just editing the text config file.
For FT857 in particular you can copy the feedback section from FT817 config file (as it is similar for 8x7 family). You will need to calibrate application meters as described in the user guide.
In the next release you will be able to load updated config files directly from the application, with no need to manually load the new files or to update the full app.

The feedback section look like in the following example:

Code: Select all

; read command format
; <priority>,<when to read>,<command - variable length>,<separator>,<nr.of.expected.bytes>,<rec_byte_1>,...,<rec byte_n>
; 		<priority> - 01-each loop, 02-from time to time (currently one from 4 loops)
;		<when to read> - 00-both during Rx and Tx, 01-during Rx only, 02-during Tx only (discarded/not sent otherwise)
;		<command - variable length> - see list of available commands format above (same as for the "blind commands", with no feedback)
;		<separator> - <R> - end command separator (<R>)
;		<nr_rec_bytes> - number of data bytes expected to be received
;		<rec_byte_x> - what that byte represent
;					 - follows the rule from the SEND commands to define data
;					 - <00> - byte not containing a farameter to be read - will be discarded
;		 			 - list of possible byte value (as 2 digits hex if numeric value or Sx if char value) and corresponding parameter value. Take care to use a valid parameter value, this is not checked for errors. 
;						A binary byte followed by '/' can be used as a mask for that byte if only some bits are to be used
;

I will test it. What i noted with 817 Settings that S Meter works but SWR always show 1. Sometimes PTT turn red but no actual Transmission.

Thanks for helping me out

HI,

You need to put calibration parameters in the file for your transceiver. I have no way to do it myself without an FT857 here, as this is something not documented by the manufacturer, so you need to experiment.
Take care that there is a sticky feature for PTT. If you short press it then it will remain on til you press the button again.

Maybe I will do this configurable in a future version as may confuse the users.

Thank you.
Dan

I simply used the 817 Example. Maybe for SWR, PWR there is something different to 857

I was not able to find a protocol specification for the meters in FT857. If you are aware of any, then this may help.
Considering the higher output power, most probable the command syntax is different.

Thank you,
Dan

Thanks Dan

Maybe you can take a look at the communication between HRD and FT857 using another application in between, like my SPCA available here:
http://www.yo3ggx.ro/spca/spca.html

I'm working on a new version which will allow you to download updated configuration files from my server directly from the application.
In this way any change in the configs will be transferred to the app without manual editing or application update.

Thank you.
Dan

Great. I will give it a try soon. I just hope HRD works. No full Version yet of HRD
