Connecting a CAT to Yaesu DR-1X Repeater.
|Connecting a CAT controller to a Yeasu DR-1X Repeater can be accomplished easily by following this wiring diagram
This CAT Note describes how to connect a CAT controller to the 15 pin “D” accessory connector on rear of the DR-1X repeater. Grounding pin #1 of the DR-1X places the repeater in the conventional FM mode. Trying to operate the repeater in digital or automatic mode will cause the repeater to lock up if the controller should try to key-up while the repeater is operating in digital mode.
Refer to the following screen shots to set up the DR-1X repeater to operate with the CAT controller.
In the setup menu window verify that “FIX” and “FM” are selected for both the receiver and transmitter.
Set DSQ CODE to off, TOT to off and the SQL to R-TONE. Set the TX PWR to LO. The repeater is rated for intermittent duty. With the repeater in continuous use for long periods of time the transmitter could over heat and burn up at the higher power levels.
Set REMOTE, TX INHIBIT, and DISPLAY TIMER to off.
