question. It certainly could be different on the FT-817, which is why I
made my offer to look, if someone will send me a dump of the entire 8K
EPROM (or, if you are local to Seattle, bring your FT-817 over to my
house for ten minutes). I will publicly disclose the results for the
The memory maps of both KA7OEI (for the FT-817) and KC2DWQ (for the
FT-897) stop at the end of the channel memories. There's several menu
items stored beyond that on the FT-897D (I can only guess for the FT-817).
It's not like I haven't tried to find out for the FT-817. Today I
considered uploading a crippled copy of software I wrote five years ago
to dump the contents of Yaesu radios. Then I remembered what happened
five years ago when I requested (*on this forum*) beta testers to run it
on their FT-817 radios, and report back the results. I had two
volunteers (I still have their names) who claimed they had FT-817
radios, and I communicated with them off-line to make sure they would
actually run the simple program and report back the results, Both
agreed that they would, and I sent them the software.
Despite repeated reminder eMails, not only did they never report back
the results, but they never even responded to my reminders. The sad
part is, I had planned to release memory control for the FT-897 and
FT-817 software (including source) under the GPL.
So, if some of you out there think I'm a bit of an *!@#$%* [insert your
own favorite word], you may be right. I just want you to know where I'm
