    Hi
    Get the G4ZLP interface and then the cat control is via mike socket leaving rear socket free for FC 30 or whatever - Mike is also useable at same time

    Works great on my FT897 and FT857

    Hi, I were wrestling with same problem. In Yaesu's manual could be founded, that there is simultaneously and paraller way use CAT connection thru the frontface mic-connector (RJ45). Guide will be founded in couple separated colums, please refer CAT connector back for right wiring.

    You need only separate ordinary mike connector wiring and Mike - PTT stays on working, but UP/DN buttons will not work.

    Probably best way to do this is, buy ready made connector or interface box. But alternative way you could make that cord with readymade LAN (used in computers network {comp2} ) cord. Just measure those lines and solder right ones together. Hide your work in matchbox (or equal) and you are wizard. Hope meet you in waves.

    best soldering and 73's

    I agree with Terry, Get Z4GLP's interface It connot be beat.
    Works very well with the FT-897 and the Ft-857.

    Thanks guys for your replys, The DM DUAL USB Multi face unit and YC004 arrived from the UK about ten days ago. So far i have only been able to look at the bright LED glowing on the unit. ( I must say Its a lot brighter than me) I am unable to connect via USB to HRD (great Programm) I get the message software installed but your hardware might not work so what now ???

    You need to ensure that the USB port is configured correctly and that the G4ZLP software is installed to enable you to read the USB as a com port

    The instructions show how to identify if the USB is working (Should be visible in the device manager when the G4ZLP unit is powered up and not visible with no power) and how to identify the com port number.

    If you still have problems contact G4ZLP for assistance

    Moved Thread here. as it seems to be more of an interfacing issue, then a Yaesu issue.

    I believe there is a y adapter about for this problem cant remember where i saw it .

    that one of the reasons i went for the AT897 tuner as it has a loop through for cat control
