YAESU FT-857D parameters display with an Arduino

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 technical document: Read the article

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

  1. Hello Sm7mdo Heino.

    I try to get the FT857D_display_test.ino program, but i get a error ?
    so can you help me ???

    Arduino:1.8.13 (Windows 7), Kort:”Arduino Uno”
    FT857D_display_test:49:10: fatal error: FT857D.h: No such file or directory
    #include “FT857D.h” // the file FT857D.h has a lot of documentation which I’ve added to make using the library easier
    compilation terminated.
    exit status 1

    1. Hello Heino
      it seems that the file FT857D.h is not in the Arduino library FT857D.
      I’m going to send you info by mail.
