3.3 A configuration strategy for your radio.
If you have a modern Yaesu rig, you may choose to begin by modifying my
FTdx101D setup. If so, you can intially leave all the records as rig = FTdx101D.
If you have a modern Icom rig, I think the configuration will be very similar but the
command details will have to be changed.
Alternatively, you can use the HAMLIB option.
Hamlib is a programming interface the converts a generic command set in the command set for
a selected one of 250 radios. The selection is by a reference number.
The learning guide in this manual progressively builds up a Hamlib configuration.
If you want to build a radio configuration from scratch, then I suggest that you leave my radios
in place as a guide and template.
You can then gradually build in your radio as a new addition.
- You can have dual access to the database:
ie: view my configuration as a template example with MySQL Front on a PC
and simultaneously use piWebCAT's built in editor for adding the new radio
(or vica versa).
- You can build in one command or command group at a time and test it.
