    Yaesu released a firmware update for the Ft-991 in July, and the press release said that it allowed the radio to connect to wires x nodes "without any additional accessories."

    Does that mean it you can do wires x without the HRI-200 internet connection kit?

    (Of course you do need a PC).

    Anyone know?

    Answered my own question - that firmware update is just so the ft-991 can access a wires-x node on the radio frequencies. You still need the HRI-200 kit to connect to the internet for the radio to be a wires-x node.

    Do you have any advice on settings on the FT-991 menus or hints on hooking up the HRI-200? I understand the FT-991/HRI-200 combo is ONLY analog FM
    that C4FM doesn't work.
    I am so clueless as to how this all works, will be using a FT2D H/T as my prime radio.
    What about frequencies?
    Thanks to you (and others)

    Has anyone had any luck using the FT-991 as a node.

    Hello All !!

    I have the same question.

    I updated my FT-991 to the latest firmware(s)
    My HRI-200 is connected

    If I use the program I can connect to an other node on the internet and I hear the QSO on the FT-991

    but when I use my FT2D on the same freq as the FT-991 connected to the HRI
    i CAN NOT get connection with the X button to get a list of nodes etc etc

    is the QSO in analog or digital? if its in analog i believe you have to use DTMF to connect to a node.

    I Am being told that the FT991 cannot be connected to the HRI-200; only the FTM100 en FTM400. Does that make any sense? Vy73 Bert PC4Y

    Yes that is correct. Add the FT 2, FT 3, and the FTM 300 to the radios that can connect to the HRI200.
