option extends the functionality of the FF-800 by allowing the user to remotely control an HF station.
Currently supported radios include:
The FF-899 allows for the control and interrogation of frequency and modulation mode. Control is via
TTL serial interface -- an RS-232 adapter is not required (however, some radios, like the TS-440, require additional
hardware to allow serial control). Provision is
also made for S-meter telemetry -- some rigs require modification to access the S-meter signal,
others (like the TS-690) are able to report S-meter telemetry via their serial interface.
- Kenwood (TS-440, TS-690)
- ICOM (CI-V radios: IC-735, IC-706, etc...)
- Yaesu FT-767
In addition to the radio control, the FF-899 can be interfaced to an antenna rotor to provide
azmuth control and telemetry with a best-case resolution of +/-1.5 degrees (depending on rotor type).
The FF-899 can also interface to a remote coax switch to allow remote antenna selection.
