      In addition to Flrig which is an excellent GUI tool (yes, it can do XML too), you can use Hamlib which has FT817 support: rigctl -l | grep 817 -- 120 Yaesu

        In addition to Flrig which is an excellent GUI tool (yes, it can do XML
        too), you can use Hamlib which has FT817 support:

        rigctl -l | grep 817
        --
        120 Yaesu FT-817 0.5.1 Beta
        --


        So with that, you can do stuff like change the VFO to 7,253.5Mhz USB via
        the command line. Fldigi natively supports Hamlib a well but Flrig
        might do a better job of it:
        --
        rigctl -m 120 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 38400 F 7253500 M USB 0
        --


        Btw.. there is also Chirp which can manage the memories of your 817 (and
        many, MANY other radios) in one consistent fashion:
