 Hi,
   I have an FT-920 and I have been trying to talk to it via hyperterminal. I have the port setting right, 4800 baud, 8n2, but i don't get even jibberish back from the rig. I've been using an ascii terminal setup and no flow control. Does this just not work and what do a need to do to make it work?

Hi Andy...so far so good from what you have set.  Have you set the communication port (com1 or com2 etc) correctly?  Have you tried other software?  I have a Yaesu hooked up and talking and had no problems setting it up and actually use the free LOGGER program and it seems to intereact very well.  Here are some more software sites I have listed below and I would be willing to help you solve this via email, radio contact or direct by phone if needed....73 de KB9UMT Don

Use the Yaesu cont reflector..lots of Q & A's!!

Some of the Yeasu models (I do not know for the FT-920 but know for sure for the FT-980) have TTL level serial I/O. That means that you need a small interface to get to the right RS232 signal levels. Check the manual where this (possibly) can be found.
Interfaces are for sale, but can be made for a couple of dollars with the welknown MAX232 chips. If you should need info about building an interface contact me by email.
