This radio CAT controller software is designed specifically for controlling Yaesu FT-920, FT-857 and FT-897 radios. Although it should function to a certain extent for other Yaesu Radios, it has not been tested with any other radio. I have added some support for Kenwood radios, but again these have not been tested. Currently there is no support for Icom radios or those that use the Icom protocol at this time.

Configuration of the software is quite simple -- Just make sure you know the baud rate, number of bits, stop bits and parity that your radio requires. You may have to set the hardware setting for the COM port's flow control to None on some computers.

Programming the memories for most Yaesu radios, via software control, is not for the timid. Yaesu has never been able to standardize their protocol for anything. Therefore, all memory operations are handled in the software using files stored on the disk. The number of memories is unlimited by using this method.

A special advanced function screen is available to allow the user to program a number of menu items. This page will differ depending on the model of radio you are using.

The help files and read me documentations is a little weak at the present moment, but I hope to get this updated over the course of the next few months. If you are owner of a radio, especially Kenwood and Icom that would be intrested in testing further updates please email me and I will see what we can do to get this tested with ICOM and Kenwood.

This software is free of charge to the ham radio community. I do accept donations to help defray the cost of the web hosting service and continue the development of ham radio type software. If you would like to donate, please click the button above to donate via Pay Pal.
