If you wonder what an SDR panadapter can do for your station, watch this video.
This radio is practically the same as the FT-817, so the installation of the interface is identical for both radios. Now that little gem is equipped with an SDR panadapter which makes it an exceptional adventure companion.
Follow the steps below to install the IFace card in the YAESU FT-817. Installation is really very easy.
As always we start from the block diagram and try to find information on where to get the first intermediate frequency signal. We use the first because it is not filtered, i.e. the band is still wide. The following images make it very clear where this point is located. The PTT may not be necessary, the TX and RX circuits are well separated.
The power supply can be taken from the test point TP1084.
At this point all that remains is to identify the points on the PCB where to take the signals: refer to the following images.
If you are convinced of the goodness of the proposal buy an IFace using the button below.
A new video from TSP S.r.l. shows how to use the “Morse Stick Keyer 2”, the most light and small paddle for telegraphy of the world. The demostration is made using a well know YAESU FT-817. This paddle works very well with other radio too, for example with: FT450D, IC7000, IC7300, TS-480, KX3 and many more.
You can find all the information at the product page. Here below you can find the demo video (please activate the subtitles). Enjoy.
