Connection for Yaesu FT-897
- I'm buying the KAM-XL tomorrow. I'll be using it with an Yaesu FT-897
radio, and I need connection recommendations.
The Yaesu has a 6-pin Mini-DIN Data Jack connector. Beside the Squelch
output, PTT input and ground, it has a 1200 BPS data output pin at 100
mV at 600 ohms (that also is used for all the HF Audio output). It also
has a 9600 bps data out pin on the connector. It only has one data
I need to know what the best way would be to connect to the two KAM-XL
jacks on the Yaesu, as it's not really obvious what the separate 9600
output is used for (I know there's a separate selection for . Also, I
need to know if the data input pin is always audio levels, or if it
takes in digital levels (FSK) when the Yaesu is in 9600 Baud mode.
So, has anyone set up a Yaesu FT-897 for both regular and 9600 bps
mode? If so, what set of connections (and maybe levels) did you use?
