FTDX101MP will not talk to PGXL

I set the baud rate inside the radio to 4800, I tried both Yaesu options and neither led to any communication. I'm using a F to F DB9 connector.

    Are you using a straight through or crossover cable? Do you have a DB9 null modem adapter to try?

    Its a straight cable. I can see flickering sometimes, not repeatedly, with gibberish in the CAT display of the PGXL.


  • Peter,

    Have you considered using the FTDX101MP's rear panel "Linear" connector BCD output to PGXL's BCD input. They are directly compatible. I use this configuration between my FTDX101MP and the 4O3A 8x2 antenna switch -- works flawlessly.
