Author Topic: Connecting Yaesu FT1000 Mark 5 to PC  (Read 2275 times)

I have been trying to connect my FT1000 to my PC either directly via serial cable or through a MFJ Sound Card Interface with no luck.

Using the command tester program with Ham Radio Deluxe, I keep getting error messages that com port 1 is being used by another program- I have nothing else running when I am trying to get them to communicate.  Using com 3, I get the message that they are connected, but I get an error when I try to send a command code.

Any thoughts on how I can get com port 1 to work either directly to the CAT system in the radio or through the mfj interface?

Thanks very much,

Do you have Palm Pilot Hot Sync program installed? With the default settings it uses Com1 all the time.

Thanks for the response.

No, I don't have a PDA sync program running, the only connection running is to the internet.

Try Commander and see if you encounter the same error message. Commander is free and available via www.qsl.net/dxlab .
