I'm trying to use the Palstar AT-AUTO in Smart Mode with the Yaesu FT-950, i.e., the AT-AUTO follows the frequency on the radio. How do I know I've done this
I've tried the following, but I see no indication that the 2 are communicating.
My settings are:
AT-AUTO: Config Radio: Yaesu FT-2000, Adj Ser I/O: 4800-N-1
Yaesu FT-950: 026 GENE 4800, 027 GENE 10 (timeout 10 MS), 028 GENE OFF (RTS off) - the settings are according to the AT-AUTO manual for this radio. I've tried other settings, 4800-N-2 on the AT-AUTO, RTS On on the FT-950, but I still can't confirm I'm using "smart mode". I'm using the Palsar to Yaesu rs232 cable.
Without the cable, when I switch back and forth from one previously used frequency to another, the AT-AUTO gives the message, "Presetting L&C". When I install the cable, restart the AT-AUTO, and do the same going between the same two frequencies, I get the same "Presetting L&C" message. I get no indication of frequency following nor difference in operation.
I'm very pleased with the AT-AUTO and even without Smart Mode, it's hands down much faster and more accurate than I on tuning. I'm just trying to take advantage of all the features I can with this excellent unit. My antenna system on my NYC apartment balcony, so it is narrow banded, so accurate tuning is essential.
