Quadra connection to Flex 6300

LarryLarry Member
can someone help me understand how I might connect my yaseu vl 1000 quadra amplifier to the flex 6300 so that it provides band change and frequency information. I use HRD software.

    I use the 6500 and the Yaesu Quadra. I use DDutil to provide band data to the amplifier wih no problems.

    Hi Larry,

    If you follow Jon - kf2e post, all will be good.  I have done the same and works great.  Any Questions just give me a shout and I'm sure Jon will help also.

    I use DDUtil with an FL-7000, setup using the kf2e post, and it works great. I have my laptop in a dock, which has s parallel port. Larry, W1IZZ

    Hi Larry,

    I ordered the ACC USB-Serial cable from Flex Radio Store to interface my 6500 to the QUADRA VL-1000 Amplifier, but need to wire it to the 8 pin din connector.  Your pdf file is  no longer available.  Has there been an update?

    You can wire the 4 band wires plus ground by the din picture in the Quadra manual but be sure you have the newer manual as there was a pin number mistake in the old manual. Setup is in the radio usb tab. No third party program needed.

    I would be interested in thispdf file as well.... I also plan to interface my flex with the 6600. I have used a Flex 5000 and Quadra together with DDutil for the past 8 years... but would be interested into see your Document Jon.

    Hi John,

    Which cable did you use?  Was it a mouser cable or Flex cable?  Is there a part #?

    An Amazon cable FTDI C232HM-DDHSL-0, that was linked in another thread. Plugs into the back of the radio and wired to the din plug on the amp.
