WCS-xx Programming Kit
ADMS-M400 Programming Kit

Program your radio conveniently at your computer, enter data for each memory, sort them and manage them in any way. If you have an Icom D-Star radio, all relevant D-Star settings can be done with this software as well. The memories can be stored on the computer as a file, printed and copied to other radios (cloning function). You can have several files open at the same time, making copying and merging data very easy. The radio is connected with the supplied cable either to a USB port of your computer (depending on model). The programming kits are suitable for XP, Vista and Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit). With 'wine' they are also useable under Linux.

The supplied cable can be used independently from the supplied software also for CAT control of the radio from a computer. The cable has the same function as the 'CT-62' by Yaesu or the 'CT-17' by Icom. The interface cables with USB are suitable for modern notebooks which don't have traditional serial interfaces.

FTM-400DE: ADMS-M400 Programming software makes it easy to manage memory channel information and other menu settings of the Yaesu FTM-400.
Programming works via SCU-20 USB-cable that comes in the box with the radio. The radio must have firmware version 2.0 or higher!

CAT-Mate

CAT-Mate

Electronic port doubler for the CAT interface on FT-817/857/897
If you want to use more than one device on the CAT interface, for example logging program and antenna controller or an external keyboard. CAT-Mate provides two CAT connectors and receives CAT commands from both inputs, the reply from the radio is directed to the socket where the last command came from. CAT port activity is shown with a LED. Further the CAT-Mate has an integrated RS-232 interface, to connect to a serial port only a normal serial cable is required (replaces CT-62). The CAT-Mate does not require a power supply.

When using the CAT-MATE on a FT-857/897 you cannot use a tuner FC-30 or FC-40 at the same time. This is because the tuners require exclusive use of the CAT interface. Workaround: Use the LDG AT-897plus tuner instead of the FC-30.

microHAM USB CAT/Audio Interface II


Bild USB-II

The new USB-II interface by microHAM is an enhancement to the popular USB-interface (see above). This interface offers the usual level converters for nearly all CAT interfaces, electrically isolated lines for PTT and CW keying, an input for a squelch signal and electrically isolated audio interfaces. This makes this device ideally suited for all users who wants to run digital modes from the soundcard.

The microHAM USB-II device works with all comouters with USB interface, drivers are available for Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Win7/Win8, Apple Macintosh OS8/OS9/OS-X and Linux. MS-DOS is not supported.

Unlike common computer mass market "USB to Serial adapters" our USB Interfaces are carefully designed for maximum immunity from strong RFI and at the same time be "RF quiet". Each data line is low pass filtered for minimum interference. The only known product of USB chipset clock is a beat at 144.030MHz.
