Subject: Re: [FT897] Radio Control software
Been using the HRD Free version / DM780 for digital ( for JT65 I use
JT65-HF and WSJT for JT9 ) Use the HRD logger ( upload to eQSL and LOTW
with it ) as
well very happy with them all they are not 100% bug free but Free SW is
good SW and it does more than other
SW out there. Use a Signalink box for digital interface. Yaesu CAT
cable to the COM port on the PC.
