Possibility CAT control of YAESU FT 736R with LOG4OM?

Post by DK6KM » 10 Sep 2017, 14:48

Hello,

my name is Manuel and i need your help.
I want to control my Yaesu FT 736R with CAT and LOG4OM. Is it possible? I know it is an old Radio and CAT control is not camparable with modern radios.

In HRD the CAT control of the FT 736R will work with a combination of YAESU FT 847 Windows Emulator program (written by KA6BFB) and VSPE Emulator program (that creates a virtual COM port).

Do you have any idea or option for using my FT 736R with LOG4OM?
I have a CAT cable for YAESU FT 736R and associated Software for Windows 7.
I hope you can give me a solution for my Problem.


many thanks and 73

Manuel

Suggest that you download and install the Omnirig software then select that from within Log4OM to use the 847 rig definition.

This is covered in our user guide

My QTH is in Germany. Locator: JN39mf

I am sorry. I don't have licence at the moment. I am learning for class a licence and I hope I can do my exam in the next 2 months.

And yes I am using omnirig for my Yaesu Ft 950 too. So I hope it will work with config of Yaesu Ft 847 in omnirig like it works in HRD.
I like log4om very much.

Many thanks and 73

I have tested it like your describtion but it does not work :-(

I am using omnirig and have selected yaesu ft 847 in the dropdown list.
In combination with vspe Emulator and FT 847 Emulator from KA6BFB my Yaesu ft 736 is connected for 1 second with log4om and than not and than for 1 second and not... but no chance to see the frequency and control it in log4om, i can only hear 'beep' and see the 'CAT sytems' graphic symbol at my radio everytime it is connected for these seconds.
I think there is only a small setting somewhere to do but i don't know where. I have read that Yaesu FT 736R have TTL Level.

Sorry for my sometimes bad english. I hope you have any idea to help me with this problem.
