Diversity is beautiful. Let’s look at all the rig control options we encounter in modern and classic amateur radio transceivers and the ways to realize their best potential for digital modes and remote operation.
Enjoy the digital modes such as FT8, JS8Call, SSTV and many more over VHF/UHF using an inexpensive amateur radio transceiver.
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.
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.
Now that the first shipments are arriving it’s time to look at the cables.
