George, many of us have had that issue. Make sure you have pressed the keyer button on the upper right.

My FTDX101D is 4 days old and finally got all the cables hooked up. I tried the CW mode with my key paddel and no automatic keyer? I did the menu settings in FUNCT-CW SETTINGS and still no success using the front or rear key jack with the correct menu setting set up F or R.
Anyone have any other ideas before I make the call to Yaesu?
Thanks W2YJ

With the rig in CW mode, press the Mic/Speed button (top right) to switch the electronic keyer on (the LED should glow amber when you push it).

Just ordered the S18 cable.  Steppir says it will work.


Re: FTDX101D & N1MM+ setting

Rejean Leveille
 

Hi Martin
I am confused with your settings, first you need to decide from Ftdx101 what will do RTS & DTR before programming N1MM. (Operation Setting - General) RTS On or Off and I kept ON
You cannot have DTR & RTS handshake at the same time.
PTT & CW should use the same command (CW Setting -Mode CW - PC Keying) I selected DTR
Enhanced port for the radio control (COM 5)
Standard port for PTT - CW (COM 4),,, Strange because the lower port number normally gets the Enhanced but I am not 100% sure about that.
When you install a new port driver you should have not done any USB connection with the radio, You can see the new port keeping the radio Off with just the USB connected after the new install driver.
In my case I kept CAT RTS ON (default), then I use DTR for PTT & CW. That means if you used other programs you cannot mix-up RTS & DTR command but all the same way.
 Note: Program default is always the yellow color (Ftdx101)

Re: No transmit on FT8

Yep. Don't need PRESET, but if it's active, it can interfere with other settings.  I strongly recommend going into the MODE menu and deselecting it if not using it.


FTDX101D & N1MM+ setting

Martin, PE1EEC
 

Hello all

New 101D-user here. Been trying to get N1MM+ to work for a CW contest. It was a bit fo a puzzle. Tried some solutions but none worked, but this settingworks for me with a single cable connected to my Windows 10 PC.

N1MM+ v1.0.9157.0
FTDX101D with May 2021 f/w
Enhanced COM port COM5
Standard COM port COM4

Radio:
Operation setting -> General -> CAT rate ->38400
CW Setting -> Mode CW -> PC Keying -> RTS
(CW Setting -> Mode CW -> CW Bk-In Type -> Semi/Full    ...... this determines whether semi or fullbreak-in and is independent of the BK-In switch on the front)

N1MM -> Portconfigurations

COM5, FTDX101D, CW/Other = off, 38400, N, 8, 2, DTR=handshake, RTS=handshake, Radio=1. The 4 PTT controlboxes = off.
COM4, NONE, CW/Other = on, DTR=PTT, RTS=CW, VFO=1

In all the other recipes I saw DTR was set to CW and RTS to PTT, but this didn't work in my case.

Hope this helps for whoever is struggling with this as well, hi.

With the settings I’m now using (from KK4DF), I don’t need PRESET.

If you haven't yet, I suggest reading up on the new PRESET mode added in the Apr 2021 software release.  It's in the MODE MENU that pops up when the MODE button is held.  It changes various relevant settings when active, overriding those setting in other modes.  If not using PRESET, be sure to deselect it.  There is a manual addendum on it (and a new manual) available on Yaesu.com

Indeed, I was referring to the MTU units.

Re: No transmit on FT8

Phil, I’ve had that issue in the past. First, make sure you have the driver installed and a com port available. Windows has messed that up several times!
Then, check your settings. Walt, KK4DF, has found settings that work very well. You can see them here:

Re: Autotrack steppir SDA200 with FTD101D

Fred Kepner
 

I will be following the thread.  I am in the process of installing a Steppir and have the SDA2000.  When I ordered, I noticed a statement about the firmware level of the SDA2000.

It says this on the interface cable page:  Requires transceiver interface firmware 9E or later. Select “FT9000D” in the transceiver setup menu.


I hope to have mine up and running in a week or two.

Sorry to tell you I gave given up trying
It took Hamradiodelux over 12 months to get their software talking to the radio.

Did you ever figure it out, Les?  I thought I had it working before the firmware update.   It doesn't work now.  I reinstalled older firmware and that did not solve the problem.  

Many thanks,

Re: FTDX101 vs FTDX 5000

Lou W7HV
 

Not sure what you're referring to regarding the VCT and VRF.  Sherwood's RX list goes by close spaced (2kH) dynamic range.  Neither VCT or VRF are narrow enough to effect that.  The FTDX5000 is currently number 14 on the list.
