Based on the image for the Pi 2 downloaded from Klaus’ KW-Soft site. I have now updated my image to support a VNC connection in addition to the built-in LCD screen. Klaus also now updated the Compact image to notify the user when an update is available. I’m using this with an FT-1D HT on DN. I use the DV4mini with only 1.2mW and the FT-1D on 0.1W with a Diamond RH3 stubby antenna. Running minimum power eliminates all the problems others have experienced.
My DV4mini has been stable from the start. I’ve only used it on the Raspberry Pi 2 and C4FM. It is now upgraded to the 1.64 firmware and accompanying software.
Today I put together the new ‘portable DV4mini setup’ that is described and demonstrated here in the DV4mini-Compact Software Video – Pascal VA2PV. As Pascal describes, a compact version of the software has been developed by Klaus DL5KV to suit a small screen setup. I am using the same size screen as Pascal which is 480 x 320 pixel. Klaus has done a great job of creating this compact version of the DV4mini control software.
Getting to grips with the new Yaesu FTM-100D.
As with any new transceiver, you want to customise the menu options – some are obvious but many come with having conversations or looking online. In setting up our FT-857D, the following web pages were helpful:

Thank you to the author(s) of these pages for this time-saving information.
Having recently purchased a Yaesu FT-60, which is a great handheld transceiver, I thought there would be a lot of information and advice readily available for planning and programming the memories. Having spent many hours researching this, I will be publishing the best of ‘FT-60’ over the coming posts.
