FT-1000D CAT Cable
The USB-60 cable from RT Systems is a USB cable that works with software for the FT-1000D to control the radio from your computer. Any software that works through the CAT port of the radio can use the USB-60 cable. Special electronics of this cable address the unique requirements of this 30 year old radio making CAT operations via USB possible. The cable sets up a com port that you easily identify on your computer and in the application. This cable is complete from the radio to a USB port on your computer eliminating the need for a USB to serial adapter (which may or may not work for this radio with it's requirements that are a little out of date).
Control and/or logging software for the radio is available from other sources. RT Systems provides the drivers for the USB-64 cable but not control software.
This radio cannot be programmed from the computer. That function is not a part of the design of the radio.
