  • Ft-897 Interface cable

    In order to use Ham Radio Deluxe with a Yaesu FT-897 what interface cable should I use and where can I purchase one?
    Thanks Ken C

    Hello Ken,

    Search for a "Yaesu FT-897 CAT Cable" that'll get the 897 talking to HRD to control the radio. The Yaesu CT_62 Cable is made by Yaesu but alternatives are available. I'd recommend one that uses the FTDI Chip Set. Depending on what Data Modes you use, you may also need some Audio Cables.

        I am using one bought on Ebay:
        USB Linker CAT interface for YAESU: FT-817\857\897\7800\8800\8900\100D
        56$ free shipment.
        Works fine with my FT897.
