I have a Turbo Tuner originally purchased in 2010 for use with my then Yaesu FT 450. Now that the FT 450 is gone and has been replaced with an Yaesu FT 857d, I would like to do the mod to set it up for use with the FT 857 and Lil Tarheel antenna.
Upon opening the Turbo Tuner, I discovered some wiring had become un-soldered from the board and would be happy if one of you who uses the same set up (857d/turbo tuner), send me a photo shot(s) of the dip switch settings and wiring configuration as it is set on the Tuner for the 857/897 Yaesu radios. I CAN EMAIL YOU PHOTOS OF MY INTERNAL BOARD!
My INTERFACE CO-AX Wiring setings as soldered on board are:
Yellow -to TKEY
Orange -to STRT
Green -to ND
Red -to ND
Gray -appears to be soldered to both ND and +12v
Blue - * is bare wiring that seems to have disconnected from solder contact
? color - * is bare wiring that seems to have disconnected from solder contact
Purple - * there are two Purple wires that seem to have disconnected from solder contact
The red box is the dip switches numbered 1-6 with ON & SAB markings on top: It is somewhat difficult to figure out how to align these switches when referencing Bill N2VZ instructions shown his web page. Bill does not/did not provide photos!
A photo of your Turbo Tuners Yaesu 857/897 internal board would be really helpful as Bill is no longer available for comment or service.
