Yaesu FT-818: More of the Same

Larry (W2LJ) offers some thoughts on the FT-818 and its incremental change from the FT-817.

My father-in-law loaned me his FT-817 when I first got started. I loved that it was a do anything radio. It's probably why I ended up a VX-3R and the IC-7000. I am a little surprised it was such a small set of changes.

Ham Radio Deluxe

I ordered a CT-62 CAT cable for the Yaesu FT-817 that my father-in-law has loaned me. The cable arrived today and I got the 817 connected to Ham Radio Deluxe. My cursory review of the HRD application makes me want to play with it some more. It is nice to work on a large screen and have access to simple buttons in the GUI instead of having to navigate through the menus on the rig itself.
