The MARK-V FT-1000MP features a built-in level
converter, allowing direct connection from the rear-
panel CAT jack to the serial port of your computer,
without the need for any external converter box.
When your software requests serial port configura-
tion information, set it for "4800,N,8,2" (4800 baud, No
Parity, 8 Data Bits, and 2 Stop Bits). Be certain to con-
figure and activate any required "TSR" (Terminate-and-
Stay-Resident) utilities before beginning computer-con-
trolled transceiver operation (your software's instruc-
tion manual will describe any such requirement).
MARK-V FT-1000MP Operating Manual
Details regarding the programming protocols for the
CAT system may be found beginning on page 86.
This chapter describes each control and connector
on the MARK-V FT-1000MP. You can just glance
through it quickly now, but some of the descriptions
will be more meaningful if you take the time to read
them in detail now. If questions arise later while pro-
ceeding through the operation chapter, you can return
to this chapter with the set powered up for control knob
clarification. Some controls and switches are disabled
under certain conditions.
