A display of some Yaesu FT-857D’s parameters was developed for a 4×20 LCD screen. The software implements via the serial link the FT-857D CAT (Computer Aided Transceiver) controls and additional readings of the transceiver’s EEPROM. The developments were made from a source code developed for Arduino by VE3BUX.
The development is directly applicable to the FT-897D and with memory address changes to the FT-817 and FT-818.

The source code includes:
- the FT857D_display_test.ino program,
- the FT857D library (FT857D.cpp and FT857D.h) which is to be installed in Arduino “librairies”.
The following source codes are given “as is”; it may contain bugs. Its reuse is under the sole responsibility of the developer; any damage resulting from its use is beyond my responsibility.
The source code is available on Github : Version 1.04
