Re: New file uploaded to FT897
- Hi David,
Thanks for trying the program. Can you possibly tell me what the
jumper configuration of your FT-897 is ? I am trying to map the bits
so we can work out what to set it to.
My JA version '897 works with 37 06 as open on receive, but I think
it will be different for the US versions.
As for the ARS, you may or may not lose it, check out the info at
www.mods.dk; some people report losing the ARS function, some say
that it works in reverse (i.e., set it to OFF and it is actually ON)
The program essentially does what changing the physical hardware
jumpers do - so any side effects will be the same.
All the same, if it does not work for you, then simply run the
program and reset the radio to 17 06 and you are back to normal.
Anyone who has a hardware modified radio, I'd love to know what
values the program reports from you !
If you run the program with no options, it will just read the EEPROM
in the radio. Send reports to the group or direct to me at the email
address specified in the readme.txt
I'd love to hear how you & others get on.
