Yaesu FT-736 mods




FT736R.3

Here are some routines to drive a Yaesu FT736R CAT interface. 

Note that the radio has TTL levels, so you need to build a circuit to
convert RS232 voltages to TTL voltages.  You can do this with a MAX231 etc,
or a couple of NPN transistors.  The latter can be mounted inside your
DB25 connector.

 1. The Yaesu spec contains one or two typos which are herein connected. 
 2. It does not appear to be necessary to space out the 5 control
    bytes by 50 ms.
 3. The READ S-meter, squelch functions smetimes fail to return all 5
    bytes, so the code (FNget) accomodates this.
