Re: RigExpert Tiny to Yaesu FT-847


Take a look at http://www.usinterface.com/naviusa_007.htm for a wide variety
of cables for the full RigExpert.  (The Navigator uses the same pin out.)
They should give you some good ideas for the Tiny.  Note that the FT-847 has
the cables for the PKT and DATA ports wired in parallel, so you will need
swap the plugs depending on what mode you are operating.  Or, as I did, wire
up a simple AB switch.  Note that for the PKT connection to use the 1200
baud RX.  Several of the RE sites have the wiring incorrectly using the 9600
baud output.  It will work, somewhat, but with a very poor S/N.  The
interface will not handle 9600 baud.
