    Hello and thank you for your time.

    Has anyone been able to get a RT Systems CAT USB cable to work on a Mac by itself to control this radio and run in MacloggerDX? Are there Mac drivers for this cable anywhere?

    I have Parallels but I wanted to start using MacloggerDX instead of HRD.

    Is there another interface for the FT-897D that runs natively on a Mac? (Hate to spend more but...)

    Thank you all again for your response.

    RT Systems Cable

    Yaesu sells a cable for use with the 857D, but can't recall the nomenclature right now. That and a USB-Serial cable does work in OS X.

    For questions related directly to MacLoggerDX, specifically how to make something work with MLDX, the best source is the MLDX mail list on Yahoo groups. Don is very responsive to problems posted there and if you are going to use MLDX, it is THE ONE LIST YOU MUST belong to. It is a top notch group of people.
