firmware 2.60 - ft100
« on: 2012-07-22, 15:05:04 »
I see new firmware 2.60 supports ft100.

Question is: how?

I haven't found info about that, just a reference in the release notes.

Regards, Steve

The manual doesn't mention this radio.

The FT-100, per manual, is a 6 pin modular connector microphone that uses a similar wiring as Yaesu FT8800/8900. The microphone pinout follows the same wiring of a Yaesu 8800/8900, so you should be able to use same jumper configuration in RR radio. On the remoterig radio settings page, the Yaesu FT-100 COM0 baud rate is suggested to be 64000, similar to Yaesu FT-857. It is program mode option 16, the last one in drop-down.

I have never owned the FT-100, but I do have the Yaesu FT2600 and am familiar with this type of mic wiring. So I'm sure this should work, but do at your own risk.

Yes RRC1258MkII ver 7 can be used to remote the FT-100, but I have not had time to update the manual yet. It may take some time as Im on vacation now.

Tnx fer answers,

I opened one of mine MK1258 MkII and I read on the PCB: Microbit 1258B-5 and on a label: snr4131.

I guess mine are v.5 .

So now the point is: does version 5 with firmware 2.60 support FT100?

I hope so, and wait for the manual when it will be published.

For now Mike, happy vacation!!!

I started to make the instructions last week but they are not ready yet. FT-100 hardware is weird so the adaption is more complicated. First it has to be RRC- version 7 then you need to put some resistor and a opto coupler in the jumper socket. See Attached picture. I will publish the cable drawing ASAP also.

Cable drawing, attached. The orginal separation cable are cut in two pieces and modular connector are attached to it. Settings are the same as for FT-857 but radio mode should be FT-100.
