Widebanding FT817ND ?

Post by g0sop on Mon Dec 07, 2009 12:48 am

I was playing around with my FT817ND the other day and noticed it doesnt tx on 7.1>7.2Mhz, its definately a ND model as it has the three colour options for the display. I assume this can be wide-banded so I can get this part of 40M, does anyone have the details on how to do this please ?

ok, here we go then.

Well, you can do it via CAT Cable and Widebander V4

OR


  1. Remove any power or battery from the Radio.
  2. Remove the 14 screws holding the top and bottom covers to the radio.
  3. Remove the battery cover latch.
  4. Remove the covers.
  5. Remove the BNC retaining nut.
  6. Carefully lift the 4 plastic tabs holding the front panel to the chassis and slightly move the front panel forward.
  7. Disconnect the ribbon cable that connects the chassis and the front panel.
  8. Remove the jumper at location on Front Panel (J4005)
  9. Press and hold the "VFO/MR" key and the "F" key while turning on the radio.
  10. Reassemble the radio.

Just looked at the pads, and looked at my soldering iron, I think I'm going to need a smaller tip on the iron.
