EXCELLENT  Time owned: more than 12 months
I would like to supplement my previous review, and tell all colleagues that SCU 17 works perfectly with Windows 10 + Yaesu FT950. It is very simple and efficient to operate any digital mode.

I would like to report that I bought a new SCU because I had problems with my previous computer that caused some damage to the SCU17 Yaesu through the USB port.

I recommend everyone, great product.

Thanks to colleagues who answered my questions via email, about the problem I was experiencing.

All solved, now I hope to get them soon in digital modes.

Great Interface  Time owned: more than 12 months
This would be everyone solution for a digital interface with just a little more info for setting it up. Once you realize to match the baud rates and RTS DTR inputs it will work with any software.
ZLP data pro is the only other thing that even comes close. I'm referring to connecting Yaesu products

Price Drop!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Universal Radio has this unit for $169.95 plus cable for the FT-2000 (both packet/psk and fsk) for another $32.95...with shipping it was $213.00.
Works great! Nice to be able to make adjustments and now work true FSK. Small and compact too, plus frees up multiple connections from previous afsk and computer controls. Next: Interfacing and setting up N1MM.......

Quality Interface  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Makes digital mode hookups a breeze. Built like a tank. Perfect complement to the FTdx1200. Looks and works great.

Great Kit  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Only just purchased the yaesu scu-17, very easy to set up plug and play with my FT-2000, got HRD running in minutes along with other digital software.
Very impressed much better than my other interfaces, well worth the money.

Super  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
My SCU-17 is connected to my FTDX5000MP. It is a great digital interface that allows 1 USB connection to do 3 things:
1. Great quality sound card
2. CAT interface
3. FSK keying

And the price is lower than most of the competition.

Integration USB Soundcard with Analog frontend and Yaesu CAT   Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Provides a USB Interface to two serial UARTs and an integrated "sound card". The first of two UARTs drives the Yaesu CAT interface via an 8-pin DIN port. It is capable of talking to a Yaesu transceiver up to 38400 baud. The second UART provides a Push-to-Talk (PTT) function on a separate COM port. Finally, a Burr-Brown PCM2903 USB Sound Card provides an analog interface to the radio - via transmit/receive attenuators - and transformer coupling.

Works out of box with countless programs - I got it working with Fldigi and FT817 Commander in minutes!
