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 can be purchased for £15.95 plus Postage & Packing

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 The 'Airmail' service I had always used has been replaced by 'International Standard' which is more expensive, but claims normal delivery times of 3 to 5 working days within Europe, and 5 to 7 working days outside of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.
