    I have a nice 2M TM-225A radio that I would like to use on FT8. If anyone has actually used this radio on FT8, I would very much like to read your specific method of doing it. The radio does have a packet DIN connector on the rear, but I am not sure it can be used for FT8. I am looking at the MFJ-1204 USB Radio Interface w/SC as a possible solution using the mic connector as the input.

    I would appreciate any information from Hams who are already using the TM-225A on FT8.

    The DIN connector 6 pins out are: GND, Data Out 1200 bps, Data out 9600 bps, SQL, PTT and Data In.

    Do you mean TM-255A, the multi-mode mobile rig?

    I had made a correction, but it disappeared? Yes, it is a TM-255A.
