    Hello Operators
    Many of you have asked for a Yaesu FT-891 tutorial for the digital mode settings with software such as WSJT-X. In this video we go through setting up the Yaesu FT-891 digi mode settings, configuring the audio interface to work with the 891, and configuring the rigs CAT Control settings to work seamlessly with WSJT-X.

    My Configuration in the video
    - Yaesu FT-891
    - DigiMaster MiniProSC Audio interface
    - HP Laptop running Windows 10
    - Non-tandard shielded USB Cables

    The setting in this video work for all the mode supported by WSJT-X: FT8, WSPR, JT65, JT9, ... The rig dide of the settings will work with most digitsl mode packages eg, WinLink, PCALE, FSQ, FLDigi, APRS Messenger, ... Time permitting, I'll also release a similar tutorial for the Raspberry Pi running Raspian & FT-891.

    You need to run your bandwidth as wide as possible, Not narrowed down. and you need to set split to fake it.

    Julian,
    Are you using these same settings for WINLINK?

    I've been using the 891 for FT-8 for the past year. HRD software with WSJT-Alert will log all entries to the HRD log and I also have it set to auto log to eqsl and QRZ. It uploads to LOTW with just a couple of clicks in the HRD software.
    Sweet! I also use the 891 as my mobile HF radio with a scorpion antenna mounted in the truck when I go camping. Double Sweet!!

    Why complicate your station configuration with HRD?
