Re: ft857

Thanks Dave,

All the settings are correct. I suspect the ct62 cable. I got it cheap on
ebay from an off shore vendor. I am going to get one from HRO and try
again. I want to use this radio mobile using home brew software to control
from a laptop. Connected it to commander to see if it was my software or a
hardware problem.

Thanks for the info.

Any one using commander control for a Yeasu ft857 xcvr. I have tried using
straight thru and cross over adapter just in case. I am using a CT62 cable
I got on EBay(ugh!).

+ I've used Commander to control my FT817 via a Yaesu CT62 cable. The FT817,
FT857, and FT897 all use the same CAT instruction set.

+ Step-by-step instructions are here:
