FTRestore 1.7 Released

There is a new version v1.7 of FTRestore available for download.  This release addresses  the changes in the MAIN/TFT firmware upgrades for the FT-991 and FT-991A released 2017-10-17, which reduced the number of menus from 154 to 153, including changes in menu function for menu numbers 88 through 153.

FTRestore v1.6.5 Released

There is a new version v1.6.5 of FTRestore available for download.  This is a minor corrective release that addresses a bug in the Menu Settings dialog.  The grid column widths were being altered each time a menu worksheet was opened, resulting in grid columns spanning multiple pages in the print layout. The default grid column widths are now preserved, and all columns fit on a single page width in the print layout.

You can download the software from the FTRestore page, or by selecting the Check for Updates… item on the Help menu if you have a previous version of FTRestore installed.

The documentation hasn’t changed and remains at version 1.6.0.2.

FTRestore v1.6 Released

There is a new version v1.6 of FTRestore available for download. This release incorporates a minor change required by the latest MAIN Firmware 01-23 released by Yaesu for the FTDX3000, which resulted in a change in the return value from the ID (Identification) CAT command from 0460 to 0462.

You can download the software and documentation from the FTRestore page, or by selecting the Check for Updates… item on the Help menu if you have a previous version of FTRestore installed.

The documentation hasn’t changed since version 1.4.0.2, but it has been renamed as 1.6.0.2 to match the new version number.

New Support Group

We are moving our FTRestore support group to Groups.io.

All existing members of our old Yahoo Group, including their subscription preferences and posting privileges,  are being transferred to the new vk2byi-ftrestore group in the next couple of days.  All existing group messages in the Yahoo Group site will also be transferred.

I encourage you to explore the new vk2byi-ftrestore Groups.io website, but allow a day or two for the existing content to be migrated.
