Connection to the radio
The radio is connected to the computer using a programming cable. The Links page of the website lists sources of ready-made cables that can be ordered over the Internet as well as several USB/serial adapters and DIY circuit designs.
If you are wiring your own cable the pinout of the packet socket on the rear of the radio is below. Use pin 3 PTT for data and pin 2 GND for ground.
Selection of Com port number is done using the Settings menu. The program will remember the selection you make for the next time you run.
There are two commands available – ‘COM port Detector’ and a pop-out called ‘COM Port’. If you are certain about your COM port number then it is quickest to use the ‘COM Port’ pop-out. Otherwise use the ‘COM port Detector’ command. The following screen is shown:
Follow the on-screen instructions to detect and set the COM port for your programming cable. Be aware that each USB socket on your PC will be allocated a different COM port number, so you may need to use this screen again if you change your usual socket.
I am Bob Freeth, a retired radio ham G4HFQ and in my late 70s. Over the past 20 years I have written numerous programs that are of interest to radio hams. Most of the programs are for managing the memories and settings of Yaesu radios. I have ceased trading and look forward to a peaceful retirement!

24 October 2020 – Simplifying my committments
In the middle of October unexpected events beyond my control coupled with a continuing gradual degradation of my health have caused me to re-evaluate whether it is sensible for me to continue selling software over the internet.
I have decided to simplify my committments and cease trading. This does not mean that I will no longer provide any support for users of my software – that will continue to the best of my ability.
Over the next few months I will be working on updating the online versions of program help files and other items but the downloadable install programs will remain in place for those who need them when changing or re-building their computers.
15 December 2020 – Free of charge registration details
All of my software is now free of charge and registration details for each program are contained in Free_registration_details
Only should you wish to do so I will be pleased if you would make a small donation to any charity of your choice. If you can’t decide which one is right for you there are many National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies around the world; I am sure you will find one operating in your own country. Another suggestion is to donate to a food bank to directly help those in hard times.
Also welcome would be additional websites to host the software downloads and list of program registrations. It would be a shame if I suddenly dropped off my perch and this website disappeared. Please get in touch if you could provide such a service.
