USB CAT Cable for Yaesu FT-847 and VR-5000 Radios
This cable is designed specifically for quick and easy CAT control of the Yaesu FT-847 and VR-5000 radios. An external power supply is not required. Simply hook it up to USB port. The power supply is done over the USB interface, following the USB 2.0 specs. This programming lead is not a straight forward cable, there is an internal converter circuit board mounted in the USB plug. The cable communicates directly with a PC through the now popular and standard USB interface. It emulates a Serial Port but that port communicates with a radio at TTL voltage levels. A Serial Port connection is not needed since the cable emulates one for you. The cable is compatible with all versions of Windows® that support USB operation. This only includes Windows® 98SE, ME, W2K, XP, Vista or higher. Please click here to download necessary USB drivers.
