      The Mic will do all commands you can do from the front panel. Very nice setup. I love mine. Floyd, WA3LCO ... From: linux_author

        - why yes, yes i do!

        :-)

        - you can see the mic addendum manual page in the files section of the
        FT897 group (or download and read about it in the FT-857 manual), but
        basically there's a rotating dial on the right side of the mic...
        tapping or holding down a button on the upper right face of the mic
        toggles the dial's function (volume control or menu scrolling or menu
        setting)

        - the mic is capable of DTMF (useful, as you know, for repeater ops),
        but DTMF is not used to control the transceiver... nor is Yaesu's CAT
        commands sent by the mic, AFAIK (after all, the mic connects to the
        mic port, not the CAT port)...

        - as for exactly how the mic achieves remote control, i'll leave that
        one up to either the designer from Yaesu, whom i invite to post
        anonymously here, or a more knowledgeable 897 user...
