That's fine Philip ... now we need to tell the 897D owners on the
various yahoo groups. That is why I've cc'd those groups.
The Yaesu FT-897D's CAT serial port uses a default of 4800 baud. If you
set the baud rate higher then you must accommodate the xcvr's inability
to handle a continuous stream of CAT commands at the higher baud. The
"Cmds" control on flrig's xcvr config panel sets the time interval
between sequential CAT strings. 20 msec worked for Philip. That may
vary for individual transceiver.
