FT-901D with FV-101DM

Postby do3spr » Sat Jun 09, 2012 7:32 pm

Dear all,

I am trying to connect a FV-101DM VFO to my FT-901D. However, it does not work. The display at the FV-101DM remains dark, only in transmit it lights up, but does not show reasonable values. Maybe it is not working at all without the memory board (901D)?

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi all,

found the solution now:

For connecting the FV-101DM to the FT-901D the following steps are required:

1) The VFO needs an external 12V DC supply at Pin 1 of the connector socket B against ground

2) At the FV-101DM the VFO out signal needs to be soldered to Pin 1 of connector socket A

3) A new cable is required from connector A of the VFO to the TRX, because the VFO out pin is not connected in the original cable

Then it all works!

Hello Stefan,

Where did you find this information? I have the same problem as you and would like to make this interface work for me as well.
