Author Topic: How does an FT-100 know that there is a FC-20 conn  (Read 352 times)

How can I make an FT-100D think that there is an FC-20 tuner connected when there is really an SGC-237 out there?  TUNER is specified in the menu but the TUN Button still won't work. I would like to be able to press TUN on the FT-100 and have the rig xmit a reduced power carrier which will cause the 237 to tune if the SWR is high.  When the tuning is complete, I would press TUN again to end the operation.  I need to know how the FT-100 identifies the fact that there is an FC-20 plugged into the coax and into the DATA connector. HELP!

If you read the manual, you'll see that it discusses this on page 94.
Press the Function button for >1 second, until the menu is displayed. Use the SEL button to go to item 61. Use the VFO dial to select tunEr. This will tell the FT-100D that the FC-20 is connected to the radio.

I did that and that is what I meant when I said that TUNER was specified in the menu.  With TUNER specified, the rig still needs to recognize that an FC-20 is physically attached because if it doesn't, the TUN button is disabled so I still need to know how the FC-20 identifies itself to the rig (probably through the DATA cable).

I looked at Page 66 and can see nothing about needing a connection to the Band Data connector. According to the manual, once tunEr is selected and FUNC is pressed to save the setting, you need to turn off the radio, then turn it back on. Then, you momentarily press FUNC until the MTR, TUN, PRO, VOX menu is displayed on the bottom of the LCD. Press B key to initiate the tuning sequence.
I wish I had an FC-20 here so I could better help, but I'm running the ATAS-100.
