    Hello all,

    Again i am seeking info on someone who is using his FTM-300 with echolink as gateway or repeater. What is the proper cable needed ?

    I was assuming Yaesu CT-165 but it seems that i might be wrong. Any help whould be apreciated.

    The CT-165 is listed by Yaesu as being specifically for cloning and programing. It may or may not have the needed pins mapped to the dsub for audio and PTT.

    Yaesu does sell a cable which adapts the din-10 on the back of the radio to a standard din-6, but a din-10 pigtail would give you the most flexibility in terms of connections at the other end. The manual for the FTM-300 should have a page where it identifies the function on each pin in the din-10.

    You would also be sacrificing a lot of radio with the FTM-300 when you could just use a much less expensive monoband radio for the same purpose.

    Probably something like the Yaesu CT-174 + CT-175 that work with the HRI-200 might work...

    If you have a USB sound card which has a din6 connector, then the CT-175 should work. The CT-174 is pretty much useless with anything other than an HRI-200.

    How is the pc going to ptt the radio without a separate cable ?

    There is a pin for PTT on both the din-10 and din-6.

    VOX. Or separate cable i.e. cheapest USB-TTL converter with a transistor or optocoupler.

    You may be better off using a RPi3.

    Then you can get Allstar also.

    I already have a netbook that was running echolink with TM-D700E.
