Re: VHF Soundcard packet on FT-847 (solution)



There are two "data" interfaces on the FT-847. The "PKT" port (6-pin DIN) is for
VHF and the "DATA IN/OUT" (3.5mm jack) is for HF - I was trying to use the "DATA
IN/OUT" port  for VHF, but it is for HF only. BUXCOMM offers interfaces for
both, I just purchased the wrong one for what I wanted to do.

W3ZZ and N3YDT are using the data port for WSJT (2 meter) on their FT-847.
It is one of the reasons that I am considering this as a rig.  I don't think
that they read the book (other than looking at the pin out) so maybe the
secret is not to believe the book.
