Product: Digimode-1-Yaesu

USB CAT Control and Audio Interfacing of your Yaesu Transceiver allowing you to fully utilise software such as Ham Radio Deluxe, Echolink, PSK31, DM780, N1MM Logger, MixW and many more.

Complete plug-and-play solution. The interface is full wired for your PC and transceiver. Just follow the instructions to download the FTDI drviers, configure up your CAT/Digimode software and you are up and running.

The Tx/Rx audio signals are galvanically isolated by Bourns 600:600 Ohm transformers and the hardware PTT is opto-isolated. The USB section of the interface uses the highly reliable FTDI Chipset and provides a virtual comm port allowing full CAT control and hardare PTT keying over the RTS signal. 

With this interface, you will be up and running on PSK31, Echolink, SSTV, Pactor, Packet or any mode that requires CAT control and Tx/Rx Audio Interfacing between your PC Soundcard and Radio within minutes. 

Cable length is 1.8m from the USB and audio connectors to the interface box. The cables from the interface box to the transceiver is 0.6m. The box is very compact at 80x40x20mm making it ideal to hide away behind the PC or transceiver using no desk space.


Yaesu Transceivers either have a combinations of CAT and Data connectors. Use the Options drop down menu to select the cable you need.

External USB Sound Card isolated audio interface allowing you to operate many AFSK digital modes such as PSK31, FT8, JT9, JT65 and Echolink. Fully plug and play. Simply plug the USB cable into your PC and the Data plug into your transceiver.

Perfect with digital mode applications such as DM780, WSJT, FLDigi, Echolink etc.

The interface uses the C-Media CM108 USB Audio Chipset and most modern operating systems already have the driver pre-installed. The advantage of this interface is your PCs normal soundcard is not tied up for Digital mode operations. As you now have a separate and dedicated soundcard for your Digital Mode working, you can independently set the Tx/Rx audio levels leaving normal PC sound unaffected.

The interface is fully galvanically isolated between PC and Radio. The Tx/Rx audio signals are isolated by Bourns 600:600 Ohm transformers and the hardware PTT is opto-isolated. The PTT is keyed by an internal VOX circuit in the interface. 

Cable length is 1.5m from the USB and audio connectors to the interface box. The cables from the interface box to the transceiver is 0.6m. The box is very compact at 80x40x20mm making it ideal to hide away behind the PC or transceiver using no desk space.

FT-1000 and FT-1000D ROM6.0 Firmware Upgrade*
*Not suitable for FT-1000MP or FT-1000 Mk 5 versions

What do I get?

The supply of one programmed Eprom with Yaesu Version 6.0 firmware for the FT-1000 and FT-1000D. Full installation instructions will be provided. All you needare a few basic tools and the confidence to carry out this simple installation on the FT-1000 or FT-1000D. You will need remove the original Rom from it's socket on the the control unit and replace it with the supplied Eprom. The installation can easily be carried out in less than half an hour.

Why do I need to upgrade the firmware?

If you intend to control your FT-1000 or FT-1000D from your PC via the CAT (Computer Aided Transceiver) interface, you are advised to have Firmware 6.0 installed. Although earlier versions of the firmware claimed to be CAT compliant with details published in the transceiver user manual, the data format was found to give problems with many CAT control applications. The problems presented themselves as slow control between the radio and PC or no connection at all. The issue seems to be related to the size of the data block returned by the radio being too long causing the CAT control applications to "time out" or lose synchronisation with the transceiver.

Yaesu recognised this issue and released firmware 6.0 to fix the problem. While the FT-1000 and FT-1000D transceivers were supported by Yaesu, a firmware update programme was made available via Yeasu Dealers. This involved returning the transceiver for installation of the new Rom. However, since the Yaesu support for the transceivers has long been discontinued, the Dealer firmware update option was withdrawn.

This "after-market" firmware update will allow you to bring your FT-1000D up to v6.0 which is the very latest Rom version making the transceiver fully CAT compliant with the many CAT control applications available.

How do I know which firmware is currently installed on my FT-1000D?
This is known as the Las Vegas test. Turn off the transceiver and whilst holding the 1+3 keypad buttons, turn the radio back on. The display will reveal the firmware revision. If your FT-1000 returns "Yaesu 6.00" in the display, you already have the latest firmware version and you do not need to buy this Eprom. Transceivers with firmware revisions lower than 6.00 will benefit from the upgrade if you want to make use of the CAT functionality.
