I can get pcsat32 to work the g-5400 rotator ok.
Problem is getting the pcsat32 and kct\t to tune the 847.
Wayne W9AE replies:
Don't use the "tuner" portion of your KCT/T. Just connect a null-modem
serial cable between the FT-847 and a serial port on your computer.
Then go in the SatPC32 Setup -> Radio menu and specify the port number,
radio model, and baud rate. Be sure to specify a matching baud rate in
the FT-847's menu #37. 57600 baud is best.
The FT-847 requires a "null modem" serial cable that swaps pins 2 and 3.
I don't know why Yaesu didn't wire the CAT connector to use a
straight-through serial cable.
