System overview

Since 2012 is the Yaesu FTdx3000 available in the market. That the great FT1000 is his grandfather, is visible in several areas. Excellent receiver, roofing filters, 1. IF at 9MHz, very good dsp system; 100 watts from 160 to 6m; 3 Antenne-Connectors, comfortable menu-system, ...…

about the CAT system

the FTdx3000 uses a CAT-Communication Concept, that is easier to handle than the old one of the FT1000. So, it became easier to fetch data from the Xcvr or send data to it. When the xcvr is powered up, Windows shows two (Silicon Labs Dual CP2105) USB-ports for the CAT communication. Port 15 (in my…

configuring flDigi

It took me a long time to setup flDigi - always some part was missing or working incorrectly ... Then I came across von Cor, PA0GTB. He created a precise manual which I followed exactly. Now everything is fine ! However: after a firmware-update of the XCVR, fldigi rig-control would not work again.…

preparing MMTTY for the FTdx3000

I use the USB-cable as connection between XCVR and PC. In my setup, the COM-Port 12 is the enhanced port and COM-11 is the standard port. By using VSPE, the CAT-Comport becomes 16. Setting up MMTTY: here I followed advice from Franco, HB9OAB to setup MMTTY and EXTFSK make sure, that extfsk.dll is…

Data backup

196 Menu-points and many memory-locations. Many hours and sometimes head-scratching to find the correct entry are worth to be backed up. I know two possibilities: the program of RTsystems. A special USB-63 cable is required, which connects to the RS232-Connector on the FTdx3000. Data are dumped…

RTTY-Contest using N1MM with FTdx3000

the program N1MM-Logger+ N1MM.hamdocs.com is a very fine contest program. To set it up for RTTY took some time but it was well worth it. The program should be run with admin rights. In my setup, the FTdx3000-ports are set to COM11 and COM12 (enhanced). Using the VSPE-Program I moved COM12 to COM 16…

Tuning up - low-power -

I use CG-3000 remote antenna tuners for my antennas and they dont like to be tuned up with 100 Watts so I wrote a utility-program to automate the following steps shown here in PowerBasic; the exe-file resides on the desktop and waits for a double-click This could of course also done in python,…

Panadapter using HDSDR

There is a panorama display in the FTdx3000, but it is not very big. So I did the following: Connect a dxpatrol.pt to the IF-Out-Anschluss of the FTdx3000 (9 MHz). Using HDSDR and dxatlas.com/OmniRig, the rig can be controlled by mouse click and vice versa - very convenient ! The configuration…

UCXLOG using Winkeyer

UCXLog can do CW using WinKey. I use this feature for CW-Contests. I have a module from K1EL (this is the follow-up module) which is mounted in my CW-Switchbox and connects to the PC via Serial Port. In the beginning, the connection between Winkey-Module and the UCXLog would not always work and…
