Yeaseu 897. Mic Socket TTL?
« on: 2014-03-08, 06:14:08 »
I gather CAT data is also available from the MIC socket, allowing you to use the rear din socket on the 897 for antenna tuners and the rest.  Has anyone done this with RK1258 and does it work? 

A nice made up cable to do so would save time....!

I used Remoterig 1258 dual on my 857D with great success in Antarctica where TX was over a 1Km away. https://bulger.co.uk/Radio    but now would like to use it on my 897 for remote operations at home.

Hi

You can use the RRC as a CAT kind of server. If you connect com2 via a CT-62 to the 897 then you can connect the antenna tuner to COM1  and set com1 to mode 7. The messages from the the tuner will then be forwarded to/from com 1 together with the message which goes from Control-RRC to com2.
