We’ve got a positive confirmation of Digirig Mobile making friends with Yaesu FT-857D. Other classic Yaesu HF rigs share the same connectors, specifically: FT-100, FT817, FT-857, FT-897, FT8-817ND and FT897D.
Love them or hate them, Baofeng HTs are here to stay. Digirig can easily double up as a serial interface for programming your radios with Chirp.
One of the final touches required for enjoying digital modes is setting up the audio levels. There are multiple controls hidden in different places so the process might be somewhat difficult the first time around.
For Digirig’s serial CAT connector you’ll need a standard male-to-male 3.5mm stereo cord. Things get a little bit more involving with the audio cable.
