Part 1 Installation and Configuration,Preparation of the Yaesu Radios. There are two ways to connect to the Yaesu radios via a serial port connection. or via a USB connection on the newer radios The USB connection offers the. convenience of also having a built in sound device that can be used with digital. software programs such as WSJT X and FLDigi , Whichever method you choose both will actually use a serial port connection. with an assigned port number comport Using a USB connection only requires. a cable while using a serial port connection you will need a USB to serial device. or a real serial port About the only guideline is that FTDI devices such as the. KeySpan have the best compatibility with MS Windows versions . Using the Yaesu USB connection , 1 Download and install the SCU 17 USB driver Virtual COM port driver from the. Yaesu website for your radio Be sure to follow the directions for installation of. the drivers Do not connect a cable to your radio until the drivers are installed. and you have rebooted your computer not always mentioned . 2 Make note of the comport number as shown on page 5 of the above manual or if. you are using a USB to serial port or physical serial port open the Windows. Device manager and expand and look at the Ports section You can find out the. comport number by plugging the USB device in and out and looking at the Port. section ,Preparing the radio , Starting in version 1 036 Win4Yaesu will support multiple firmware versions.
starting with the following main firmware versions . Yaesu FT 991 02 21,Yaesu FT 991A 01 09,Yaesu FTDX 1200 01 14. Yaesu FTDX 3000 01 23,Yaesu FTDX 5000 01 29, This document is Copyright 2017 2020 by Tom Blahovici 4. It may not be reproduced without express written consent of the author Tom Blahovici VA2FSQ. If you have an older version the Radio Menu items and Parameteric equalizer. will not be available but all other functions should work . Before using the software please go into the menu system of your radio and set. the following , 1 Go to the menu and find the entry for CAT SELECT Set this to USB for the built. in USB interface or RS232 for other serial devices . 2 Go to the menu entry CAT RATE and set this to 38400bps . 3 Go to the menu entry CAT RTS and select DISABLED . This completes the preparation of the radio ,Installation of the Software. You may download the software from yaesu va2fsq com Be sure to turn off any. antivirus software before the installation The software provides a fully functional. 30 day free trial after which you can purchase the software if it meets your needs . Initial Configuration of Win4Yaesu Suite, The first time you launch Win4Yaesu Suite you will be taken to the setup menu.
automatically You must connect to the radio in order to use the software You. will see the following menu , This document is Copyright 2017 2020 by Tom Blahovici 5. It may not be reproduced without express written consent of the author Tom Blahovici VA2FSQ. Select the COM port from the drop down list and click on Connect If you have. followed the setup above the button will change to Disconnect . You can then choose a Panadapter such as the LPPAN SDRPlay or None . Finally click on Save and the program will start , This menu has several tabs which will be covered later in the manual as. necessary , Since you have now connected to the radio take some time and look over the. interface There are several controls such as the Split button CW Keyer 60m. button that have multiple purposes which can be selected with a mouse right. click on the button In addition a double click in the VFO displays will open a. keypad and a double click on the power meter will toggle through selections of. several meters , One of the neat features of Win4Yaesu Suite is the built in Panadapter The. following section will look at configuring this part of the software . Setup of the Spectrum Scope with LPPAN,Installation Steps.
LPPAN provides a high performance Panadapter for the Yaesu FTDX3000 and. 5000 with the available IF out connector on the rear of the radio For the. FTDX1200 and FTDX9000 you will need to use the SDRPlay device since the. radio does not have an IF out unless you have an internal IF output modification . For the FT 991 A both a RX antenna is supported with a TR switch and an IF. out with a radio modification Please see the instructions in the next section . This document is Copyright 2017 2020 by Tom Blahovici 6. It may not be reproduced without express written consent of the author Tom Blahovici VA2FSQ. The first step is to enable the IF out in the FTDX5000 Menu Number 109 The. FTDX3000 has this enabled by default , The output from LP Pan requires a stereo audio adapter to be installed on your. system Many laptops do not have a stereo input If you attempt to use the. spectrum scope with a non stereo input then you will not get correct results . Most motherboard based audio devices and outboard USB audio devices do. have stereo inputs Unfortunately Windows does not always tell you if the audio. device is stereo in a straight forward manner , A good sound device for use in Panadapter applications is the ASUS Xonar U7 . The first step before trying to install the spectrum scope is to check which. devices are installed on your system and make sure they are configured. correctly ,Vista Windows 7 8 and 10 Sound Device Setup. Step 1 Open the Control Panel and select Sound , Step 2 Select the Recording tab as shown in the following figure . In this figure you can see that there are a number of devices shown In this. example the Microphone Input for the E MU 0404 device is the one that will be.

NOT It actually is a stereo input Please also note that there is a motherboard. Line In connection available However you cannot select this device since there. is no cable plugged in Many devices will only become active when a cable is. actually plugged in The same thing will happen with the ASUS Xonar U7 In. this case ASUS provides a utility program which allows the input to be set to. Line In , Step 3 Select the device you wish to use and click the Properties button .
Step 4 Click on the Levels Tab and increase the volume to maximum In some. cases you will also see a balance button Set both channels to maximum You. can adjust this later if the levels seem to be too high A good level on a quiet. band 6m for example would be around 120 to 130 dBm as seen on the scope . Step 5 Click on the Advanced tab , This document is Copyright 2017 2020 by Tom Blahovici 8. It may not be reproduced without express written consent of the author Tom Blahovici VA2FSQ. Here you will see a list of formats that your device supports However in some. cases the list will be incorrect and Windows will actually try and up sample the. data stream which is not appropriate When in doubt refer to the manufacturer. of your sound card and use that setting in Win4Yaesu Suite You must set this. to your planned maximum sample rate usage , Configuring Win4Yaesu Suite for the Spectral Display. Make sure you have installed and configured your sound card before starting. Win4Yaesu Suite Once this is done start up the software In the Tools . Settings menu in the Win4Yaesu Suite Control Center window there is a section. called Panadapter Here you have a choice of LP PAN or the SDRPlay. connected to the IF out or RX out , For the FTDX3000 and FTDX5000 the preferred connection is to the IF Out and. for the FTDX1200 and 9000 the only choice is the RX out The FT 991 A will. also use an RX antenna However it is important that you use a TR switch for. the 991 and 1200 ,You can see a video about this here . https youtu be 0wvJ3xqOiTo, This document is Copyright 2017 2020 by Tom Blahovici 9.

Once you have setup Win4Yaesu Suite to connect to the panadapter device . click on the Window menu and select the appropriate display . In the case of LPPAN you will need to select a sound device Press the Control. Panel button in the lower right hand corner of the spectrum scope window This. will open the control panel as follows , Click on Connect and you will see the following device selection dialog . This document is Copyright 2017 2020 by Tom Blahovici 10. It may not be reproduced without express written consent of the author Tom Blahovici VA2FSQ. Here you will need to select an appropriate driver Once that is done the. spectrum should display An example of this is the Microphone E MU 0404 . USB ,Additional Spectrum Setup for LPPAN, Software based spectrum scopes take the quadrature signal IQ out from a. software defined radio or Panadapter device and processes the two signals I . In phase and Q Quadrature phase by digitizing the signal using an audio. capture device From here the two signals are fed into a fast Fourier transform. which translates the signal from the time domain to the frequency domain which. is then plotted , There are a few things that must be done to set up the spectrum scope. appropriately One is to make sure that the signals are connected to the right. channels of your sound card The other is to make sure that the two signals are. equal in amplitude and at 90 degrees out of phase with each other This is. referred to as IQ Balance ,Checking for correct connections . To do this first set up your sound card as above and then tune your radio to. signals in the AM broadcast band nice solid signals here Zoom in a bit see. usage below , Once you have some signals displayed turn the VFO A dial clockwise If you.
see the strongest signals on the spectrum scope display moving to the left the. signals are fed into the sound card correctly If you see the strongest signals. moving to the right you will need to click on the Swap IQ in the control panel of. the spectrum display , The settings will be saved If you change sound cards in the future you may. have to change this again , This document is Copyright 2017 2020 by Tom Blahovici 11. It may not be reproduced without express written consent of the author Tom Blahovici VA2FSQ. Checking IQ Balance , If you see many images in the spectrum you will need to set the balance of the. IQ channels Click the IQ Balance button , Setting the IQ balance can be done for each band separately If you do not set. this for a particular band it will use the settings that were used for the last. calibration In general for the FTDX IF output this needs to be done only once. on one band , The best way is to use a signal generator such as the XG3 from Elecraft Another.
method is to use another transceiver into a dummy load or have a fellow ham. nearby that can generate a constant carrier for you Lacking these you can use. strong signals such as WWV or find a LID who is placing a carrier on a DX . Turn the VFO dial around a bit and you will notice that the image of the main. signal moves towards or away from the main signal as you tune If the signal. moves in the same direction it is a signal not an image . To adjust the balance move the IQ Gain control until the image peak is. minimized The value should be close to 1 0 0 1 As you get close it is better. to use the up and down arrows on the keyboard Next adjust the Phase control . using the keyboard when you get close Alternate back and forth until the im. Before using the software please go into the menu system of your radio and set the following 1 Go to the menu and find the entry for CAT SELECT Set this to USB for the built in USB interface or RS232 for other serial devices 2 Go to the menu entry CAT RATE and set this to 38400bps 3 Go to the menu entry CAT RTS and select DISABLED
