Hi, I'm looking for a complete list of CAT commands for the various Yaesu radio's released to date.

Main radio I am currently interested in is the Yaesu FT-212RH. The manual suggests that the TX power level can be set via the CAT commands, however there is no command listed in the chart in the manual. Sad

Also wondering about a multi CAT interface. That allows 4 radio's off of the one CAT / RS232 interface.

My idea is to automate packet msg forwarding and APRS gateing etc in a frequency agile set up between VHF <> HF at different times of the day.

Setup will be the following.

IBM Clone Duron 900Mhz.
Yaesu FT-212RH <> AEA PK-88 (VHF1)
Yaesu FT-212RH <> AEA PK-88 (VHF2)
Yaesu FT-890AT <> AEA PK-232MBX (HF1)
Yaesu FT-757GX <> AEA PK-232MBX (HF2)

* UHF to come when I can find a FT-712RH. Smiley

Also looking for a cheap second hand Annex / Network Serial Switch with at least 8 serial ports to hang off of the CAT5 here. If you see one going cheap, please let me know. I would really like to help support RF forwarding in my area.

Regards,
Ken. VK4AKP.

Unfortunately, there is no "master list" of Yaesu CAT commands. Most Yeasu models have unique command sets; in some cases these are similar to those of predecessors, in other cases they don't even use the same bit ordering. There are also ROM updates that introduce new commands or change the behaviour of existing commands. Yeasu's CAT documentation is rarely comprehensive or error free.

Despite all of this variation between models, Yeasu has never managed to produce a protocol that supports multiple radios on one bus (as does Icom's CI-V protocol).

My current theory is that Yaesu engineers learned about computers and software from reading the backs of cereal boxes.
