Re: TRAKBOX



FT-847 support was added in version 3.50a, here is a excerpt from the doc
file that is included in the file trk350b zip on the TAPR ftp site
ftp.tapr.org in the /software_lib/sat/trakbox directory:

* YAESU FT-847 support. You can configure it from menu6-7-Y-1/2/3 or
STATION.DAT file uploading.

To communicate with the FT-847 you need to use a Null modem cable or adapter
or you can re-wire the Trakbox's radio port to make it a DCE device.

Just do a Google search using "Trakbox FT-847" and you will find all kinds
of information.  One hit I found was someone else answering simular
questions that I asked a couple of years ago.


Good luck,
Bernie, K3BAZ
