A friend of mine has a Yaesu FT-450D and a SignaLink USB interface.
I have been trying to help him get things up and running on the digital modes. He likes DIgipan software and is receiving some stations fine. He's having a problem getting the radio to transmit.
He downloaded MMTTY last night and is receiving, but it is erratic and his FT-450 manual isn't a lot of help with Menu Items. (What Yaesu Manual really is helpful???).
If anybody reading this has a similar setup, I would like to hear from you. Since this is kind of "Off Topic" for the reflectors I am sending it to, please answer me off the reflector. My e-mail is w0raa[at]arrl.net. (You all know what to do with the [at]).
I guess I need some answers on the FT-450 Menu settings in some of the categories. I guess I could join the FT-450 Reflector on Yahoo Groups, but since I don't have a 450 (I have the 950) I really don't want to join that reflector if it's possible to avoid it. Somebody out there has to be running a FT-450 with a SignaLink USB and Digipan and MMTTY.
Any assistance would be appreciate. Just do it directly to me.
Thanks guys/gals and hope to see many of you in the BARTG 75 this weekend and the CQ WW RTTY next weekend.
