Use a straight through cable that Radio Shack sells for 10 bucks
one end DB9 in the FT1000 MP the other goes to my DB9 i/o port

Install the comtsr for the radio

Mine goes :  COMTSR3 -I10 -B4800  -N82

(You need to identify your com port, be sure that there is no IRQ
conflict.   the B4800 and N82 is mandatory for the yaesu)

Run setup carefully select FT1000MP = Radio1
select the right options in setup.

don't overlook the obvious.

GL, Bill
