Has anyone found a way to make the FT100D transmit a low power carrier for tuning purposes, without having to press several of button, please?
For the IC706, FT817, and similar radios, you can make or buy a 'dongle' which plugs into the tuner connector and fools the radio into thinking it has a tuner connected. Pressing the Tune button gives a 10W or, on the 817, a double click of the PTT, a 3W carrier for tuning. The Icom one can be done with a switch and resistor but the 817 needs a bit more intelligence, however, a dongle is available in the UK for about £15.
I'd like something similar for the FT100D, I'd prefer to build but buying is an option. Googling has failed to throw up anything.
In theory, the planned tuner (an SGC or LDG) should tune in seconds on SSB and I may be gilding the lily but it goes against the grain to tune on high power, even for a few seconds.
