Quick-Tune Dongle

Quick-Tune Dongle for Yaesu FT-817, FT-857 & FT-897

The Quick-Tune Dongle is designed to aid ATU and Auto-ATU adjustment by eliminating the multiple button presses required to generate a tuning carrier when using SSB. It is the same size as a mini-DIN plug, but has no cable attached.

When plugged into the CAT socket of an FT-817, FT-857 or FT-897 it monitors the transceivers transmission status and adjusts the operating mode to produce a tuning carrier when a PTT double-click is detected. As soon as the PTT is released, it returns the transceiver to its previous operating mode (USB or LSB).


The Quick-Tune Dongle is ideal for mobile and portable operators

It can be set to produce full or 1/4 power tuning carriers

It is very low power (uA) and radiates no interference

POSTAGE UPDATE. On the 31st March the UK postal service (Royal Mail) made significant changes to its international postal services. The 'Airmail' service I had always used has been replaced by 'International Standard' which is more expensive, but claims normal delivery times of 3 to 5 working days within Europe, and 5 to 7 working days outside of Europe.
