    In case anyone missed it, the Yaesu FTM-350 now supports the use of an external GPS via the COM port. You need to download the latest software from Yaesu's site which adds additional settings in the SET menu. The relevant setting is under the APRS/PKT menu, item E16 - COM PORT SETTINGS. Setting #3 - INPUT can now be set to GPS.



    Additionally, there is a new setting #2 called OUTPUT that will allow you to use the COM port to output the GPS data.

    AGW Tracker

    Will the use of the comm port to send data to a laptop allow me to use AGW Tracker or similar tracking program with my FTM-350? I do Ecomm with my county EOC and we're just starting with APRS. Do you recommend another type of software?


    Thanks

    I would think so. I'll have to download the AGW Tracker shareware and try it out. If you do it first, let us know what happens.

    Yaesu FTM-350

    I think there are deals being offered by Yaesu. I got mine from Ham Radio Outlet. Check around on prices, they vary.
