Hello:

I have downloaded DXlabs program, and want to get
commander working with my Yaesu FT-847. My FT-847 is
computer controlled by a DB-9 to DB-9 cable, and my
SignaLink interface is controlled by USB port 4.

I have been using MultPsk to receive packet, but I
cannot get commander running. I have tried everything
I can think of. Is anybody running a similiar setup
that could help me?

All suggestions appreciated!!

Thanks,
John (KD8BIN)

Dave, thanks for that link, it did help. I do get
commander to show "connected" now on MultiPsk, but
on commanders "Main screen", i cannot get it to transmit, or have the VFO display change when I turn
the main dial on the 847. Also, when I check PKT, it
jumps to CW-R for some reason.....

Appreciate the help and time!!

thanks,

Lets' go through some basics:

1. if you click Commander's USB button, does your 847 switch to USB?

2. if you click Commander's CW button, does your 847 switch to CW?

3. if you change Commander's frequency, doe your 847 QSY to the same frequency?

4. if you change your 847's mode from its front panel, does Commander display the new mode?

Please respond via aa6yq@ambersoft.com -- its faster. You can report the resolution here after we track this down.
