Hi All and happy new year,

I am new to flex radio and have purchased a 6600 with the maestro with the intension of using it remotely.

I have a yeasu FL-7000 solid state amplifier, is it possible to link it to the flex for band follow when I am away with the maestro.

Thanks Brian.

Yes, should be the same interface as the Quadra. I use a a usb ftdi cable off Amazon. A quick search for Quadra here should have the information you need.

Hi Brian

Yes, but you will need to wire your own cable to connect to the amplifier.  You will need this cable http://cart.flexradio.com/USB-to-Parallel-adapter-for-the-FLEX-6000-series_p_1001.html which connects into the back of the Flex 6600.  That cable will send Yaesu BCD data to the amplifier.  

The SmartSDR USB Cable Interface Guide can be found at https://www.flexradio.com/downloads/usb-cable-interface-guide-pdf/.  While it does not have the FL-7000 listed, you should be able get an idea from other devices listed there.
