For informational purposes, I ran into a similar problem with my FT-1000d
when I attempted to plug my Top-10 Devices switcjing box into the
"band-data" port on the back of the radio. Apparently, this is the same
type of 8 pin plug that Pete is talking about.  Yaesu will gladly sell
them to you for about 1.50 apiece, and I bought a handful. It is so nice
to have so many "standards" to choose from!!

It's not a bug...It's a feature!

Thanks to all who sent me information regarding the RCA and Sony DSS
receivers.  It looks like N2IC/0 is the only person suffering from 160m QRM
which is linked to a DSS receiver (in Steve's case, an RCA unit).

I purchased and installed a Sony DSS system yesterday.  It works great (I
live in an area with no local broadcast or cable TV, so satellite TV is a
Godsend) and I have not noticed any 160m QRM.  I was having trouble finding
the DSS satellite in the sky until I realized the Sony installation guide
uses magnetic, not true north--I've spent too much time aligning ham

An OSCAR satellite in geosynchronous orbit which could use these fixed 18"
dishes sure would be fun.  However, I heard such satellites cost around a
billion dollars each!
