That is the norm. You should see your keyed signal on the panadapter screen. With the last patch the water fall stayed when you quit keying. If you have not upgraded the firmware you will not see the waterfall return, and will have to wait for it to repaint. The last patch really did great things for the DNR. It fixed some 232 problems and kept the waterfall from totally going and having to wait for a rescan of the frequency.

I am sure you will find the 101 one heck of a great RX once you master the usage of all the options for noise reduction and peaking the signal with brick wall filtering that does not allow AGC pumping.

Yep.  My notebook computer only takes micro SD cards (seems most do).  They've worked FB on the FTDX101 with an adapter.

Hi,
The SD card MUST be formatted with the radio and not with any computer.
Of course after downloading the compressed file, yes you can unzip them with your computer, then to transfer them on your DS card inside the FTdx101 directory files.
The radio will just install the new required one.

Good to hear! I have several USB card readers of various types, as I use several different card sizes.

Let us know if you see any improvements from the new firmware.

Giorgio, thanks for the mention of the external tuner setting!

I was having issues connecting something via the RS232 and that was exactly the problem.  Working great now.

Hi

I used it for a long time (due to SiLabs delay in Mac Big Sur driver update release) so I used rs232 for CAT and Usb for audio in/out

to use the rs232 for CAT the only things you’ve to do are:

1) arrange a straight cable pin to pin 2-2 3-3 5-5
2) check that in the 101 menu is not selected any external tuner (otherwise the 101 rs232 port is not usable for CAT)
3) set 232 speed in the 101 menu

no driver is required.

Now I moved to a microHAM DXP so USB port on my 101 is unused and unconnected

Re: upgrade

Yaesu has several help guides available, but basically, you download the files to your PC, transfer them to the SD card, insert the SD card in the radio, and select "Firmware Update" in the "Extension Setting" menu.

Don, easiest way is to print out the upgrade info pages pertaining to the latest upgrade. Then read over and follow its directions.

For Sale: Yaesu FTdx101D

Hello fellow Hams,
It is with much thought and deliberation I have decided to sell my Yaesu FTdx101D (100 watt version).  There is nothing wrong with the radio and in fact I haven't used it much at all.  It is a renowned radio and the receiver is second to none.  The only accessory that I have for it is the FH-2 and it is has the MARS mod.  Asking $2900.00, no tax.  If interested please contact me at the email addres below.

Re: serial cable

Lou W7HV
 

Yep. And I recommend checking that it has latest firmware installed. It almost certainly does but it was released only a month ago. Here's how to check:

Best to use USB A to B cable. If you need RS232, others here could advise.
