You may have success trying a Kenwood radio.  Seriously.  Starting with
the FTDX-9000 series, Yaseu went to a text command set very similar to
that used by Kenwood since at least the TS-850.  For frequency and band
setting it may just work.

Except for the FT-817 and '897 (does the '857 do CAT?) none of the new
Yaesu HF rigs support the old command set.  Working primarily in the
Yaesu backends of the Hamlib (http://www.hamlib.org) Project has given
me too much experience with them.  :-)
