Module Version: 0.9.6   Source   Latest Release: FT817COMM-0.9.9

NAME ^

Ham::Device::FT817COMM - Library to control the Yaesu FT817 Ham Radio

VERSION ^

Version 0.9.6

SYNOPSIS ^

use HAM::Device::FT817COMM;

Constructor and Port Configurations

        my $FT817 = new Ham::Device::FT817COMM (
        serialport => '/dev/ttyUSB0',
        baud => '38400',
        lockfile => '/var/lock/ft817'
                                               );

        my $port = $FT817->{'serialport'};
        my $baud = $FT817->{'baud'};
        my $lockfile = $FT817->{'lockfile'};
        my $version = $FT817->moduleVersion;

Destructor

        $FT817->closePort;

Lock File

In the event you abruptly end the software or loose connectivity via ssh. When attempting to reconnect you will see the following error.

        Can't open serial port /dev/ttyUSB0: File exists

The lock file can be remove simply by

        rm /var/lock/ft817 

Initialization

The instance of the device and options are created with the constructor and port configurations shown above. The variable which is an instance of the device may be named at that point. In this case $FT817. The serialport must be a valid port and not locked. You must consider that your login must have permission to access the port either being added to the group or giving the user suffucient privilages. The baudrate 'baud' must match the baudrate of the radio CAT RATE which is menu item 14.

Note that you are not limited to one radio. You can create more than one instance using a different name and serial port

        my $anotherFT817 = new Ham::Device::FT817COMM (
        serialport => '/dev/ttyUSB1',
        baud => '38400',
        lockfile => '/var/lock/ft817-2'
                                                      );

        my $port = $FT817->{'serialport'};
        my $baud = $FT817->{'baud'};
        my $lockfile = $FT817->{'lockfile'};
        my $version = $FT817->moduleVersion;

REMEMBER!!!! Each instance created needs its own destructor.

Finally lockfile is recommended to ensure that no other software may access the port at the same time. The lockfile is removed as part of the invocation of the destructor method.

METHODS ^

1. Using Return Data From a Module

This allows for complete control of the rig through the sub routines all done through the cat interface

        $output = 'rigname'->'command'('value');

an example is a follows

        $output = $FT817->catLock('ON');

Using this method, the output which is collected in the varible $output is designed to be minimal for use in applications that provide an already formatted output.

For example:

        $output = $FT817->catLock('ON');
        print "$output";

Would simply return F0 if the command failed and 00 if the command was sucessfull. The outputs vary from module to module, depending on the function

2. Using setVerbose()

The module already has pre-formatted outputs for each subroutine. Using the same example in a different form and setting setVerbose(1) we have the following

        setVerbose(1);
        $FT817->catLock('ON');

The output would be, for example:

        Set Lock (ENABLE) Sucessfull.

Other verbose outputs exist to catch errors.

        setVerbose(1);
        $FT817->catLock('blabla');

The output would be:

        Set Lock (blabla) Failed. Option:blabla invalid.

An example of both is shown below for the command getHome()

        As return data: Y
        As verbose(1) : At Home Frequency

We see that return data will be suitable for a program which needs just a boolean value.

3. Build a sub-routine into a condition

Another use can be to use a subrouting as a value in a condition statment to test

        if (($FT817->gethome()) eq 'Y') {
                warn "I guess we're home";
                              }

Call all of the modules, one at a time and look at the outputs, from which you can decide how the data can be used. At this time I have completed a command line front end for this module that makes testing all of the functionality easy.

DEBUGGER ^

FT817COMM has a built in robust debugger that makes available to the user all transactions between the software and the rig. Where verbose gave the outputs to user initiated subroutines, the debugger does very much the same but with internal functions not designed to be called directly in the userspace. That being said, you should never directly call these system functions or you will quickly turn your 817 into a paperweight or door stop. You have been warned.

Feel free to use the debugger to get an idea as to how the module and the radio communicate.

        $FT817->setDebug(1); # Turns on the debugger

The first output of which is:

        DEBUGGER IS ON

Two distinct type of transactions happen with the debugger, they are:

        CAT commands   :        Commands which use the Yaesu CAT protocol
        EPROMM commands:        Commands which read and write to the EEPROM

With the command: catgetMode() we get the regular output expected, with verbose(1)

        Mode is FM

However with the setDebug(1) we will see the following output to the same command:

        [FT817]@/dev/ttyUSB0$ get mode

        (sendCat:DEBUG) - DATA OUT ------> 00 00 00 00 03

        (sendCat:DEBUG) - BUILT PACKET --> 0000000003

        (sendCat:DEBUG) - DATA IN <------- 1471200008

        Mode is FM
        [FT817]@/dev/ttyUSB0$ 

The sendcat:debug shows the request of 00 00 00 00 0x03 sent to the rig, and the rig returning 1471200008. What were looking at is the last two digits 08 which is parsed from the block of data. 08 is mode FM. FT817COMM does all of the parsing and conversion for you.

As you might have guessed, the first 8 digits are the current frequency, which in this case is 147.120 MHZ. The catgetFrequency() module would pull the exact same data, but parse it differently

The debugger works differently on read/write to the eeprom. The next example shown below used the function setArts('OFF'), the function which tunrs arts off.

        [FT817]@/dev/ttyUSB0$ set arts off

        (eepromDecode:DEBUG) - READING FROM ------> [00x79]

        (eepromDecode:DEBUG) - PACKET BUILT ------> [00790000BB]

        (eepromDecode:DEBUG) - OUTPUT HEX  -------> [81]

        (eepromDecode:DEBUG) - OUTPUT BIN  -------> [10000001]


        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - OUTPUT FROM [00x79]

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - PACKET BUILT ------> [00790000BB]

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - BYTE1 (81) BYTE2 (1F) from [00x79]

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - BYTE1 BINARY IS [10000001]

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - CHANGING BIT(0) to (0)

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - BYTE1: BINARY IS [00000001] AFTER CHANGE

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - CHECKING IF [1] needs padding

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - Padded to [01]

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - BYTE1 (01) BYTE2 (1F) to   [00x79]

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - WRITING  ----------> (01) (1F)

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - PACKET BUILT ------> [0079011fBC]

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - VALUES WRITTEN, CHECKING...

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - SHOULD BE: (01) (1F)

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - IS: -----> (01) (1F)

        (writeEeprom:DEBUG) - VALUES MATCH!!!

        ARTS set to OFF sucessfull!

The output shows all of the transactions and modifications conducted by the system functions

Modules ^

agreeWithwarning()
                $agree = $FT817->agreeWithwarning(#);

        Turns on and off the internal flag that says. You undrstand the risks of writing to the EEPROM
        Activated when any value is in the (). Good practice says () or (1) for OFF and ON.

        Returns the argument sent to it on success.
bitCheck()
                $output = $FT817->bitCheck();

        The function that checks the BITWATCHER hash for changes and throws an Alarm if a change is found
        showing what the change is. The BITWATCHER hash is hard coded in FT817COMM.pm as areas are discovered
        they are removed from the hash.  If an alarm is thrown, look at what function was done in the history log
        and output log to figure out why the value was changed

        [FT817]@/dev/ttyUSB0/:$ bitcheck
        CHANGE FOUND IN MEMORY AREA [0055]: BIT 4 is 0, WAS 1


        If it finds no changes, it will return the following

        This command currently works with verbose and write to file.  Currently there is no
        usefull return information Except for digest.  With no argument, it defaults to 
        console and dumps the entire 76 software calibration memory areas to the screen. 
        Using digest will return an md5 hash of the calibration settings. Using file along
        with a file name writes the output to a file.  It's a good idea to keep a copy of 
        this in case the eeprom gets corrupted and the radio factory defaults.  If you dont have 
        this information, you will have to send the radio back to the company for recalibration.

        Reads and returns information from the VFO for [MTUNE/MTQMB] doesn't take a band argument. 
        This is only for VFO memory's and not the Stored Memories nor Home Memories. Leave OPTION empty to 
        Return a hash with all OPTIONS below

        Returns information based on one of the valid options:

        MODE          - Returns the mode in memory - update only appears after toggling the VFO
        NARFM         - Returns if Narrow FM os ON or OFF

        The CLAROFFSET is the stored value in the VFO not the active one.  The EEPROM doesnt write everytime
        you turn the clarifer adjustment.  When using the CAT command to set the CLARIFIERFREQ this value will
        not update, only when set directly in the VFO mem will it show a live update

        If you have never used the QMB/MTQMB option on the radio, the memory addresses will show garbled data.
        Its simply easier to first send some arbitrary data to the channels in the radio by following the instructions
        on manual page 44.  This is not a requirment, if you dont use QMB or MTQMB you do not need to do this.

        If you have never used the QMB/MTQMB option on the radio, the memory addresses will show garbled data.
        Its simply easier to first send some arbitrary data to the channels in the radio by following the instructions
        on manual page 44.  This is not a requirment, if you dont use QMB or MTQMB you do not need to do this.
rebuildSoftcal()
                $status = $FT817->rebuildSoftcal([filename]);

        This command is used to reload all of the software calibration settings for the FT817 in the event
        that either the software calibration had become corrupted, or a master reset was needed for the rig.
        This reload uses the FT817OS 'cal' file format to reload data.  If you did not backup your cal settings
        then this will be of little use and the rig will have to go to the factory to be recalibrated.

        You can call the command without an argument to use the default file name FT817.cal

        The cal file must be in the directory where you are running the program which calls it.  The program will
        ensure the file exists, and the data is correct before it attempts to write it to the Eeprom.  If it finds 
        an error it will tell you what line of the cal file produced the error and stop.

        Note that this will start writing data if the cal file is error free and not provide any user prompt

        Returns 0 on sucessfull write of the 76 bytes
        Returns 1 on Error
restoreEeprom()
                $restorearea = $FT817->restoreEeprom();

        This restores a specific memory area of the EEPROM back to a known good default value.
        This is a WRITEEEPROM based function and requires both setWriteallow() and agreeWithwarning()
        to be set to 1.
        This command does not allow for an arbitrary address to be written.

        restoreEeprom('005F'); 

        Returns 'OK' on success. Any other output an error.
saveConfig()
                $output = $FT817->saveConfig([filename]);

        This will backup the radio configuration to a file using the FT817OS format so that it can
        be restored, if needed.

                my $option = $FT817->writeMemvfo('[MTUNE/MTQMB]', '[OPTION]','[VALUE]');

        Writes settings to the VFO memory given a VFO [A/B] and a BAND [20M/40M/70CM] etc..
        Writes settings to the VFO memory given a VFO [MTUNE/MTQMB] no band required for these.
        This is only for VFO memory's and not the Stored Memories nor Home Memories. 

        Valid options:

        MODE          - Sets the mode in memory - update only appears after toggling the VFO
        NARFM         - Sets if Narrow FM os ON or OFF
        NARCWDIG      - Sets  if the CW or Digital Mode is on Narrow
        RPTOFFSET     - Sets the Repeater offset
        TONEDCS       - Sets type type of tone being used
        ATT           - Sets if ATT is on if applicable.
        IPO           - Sets if IPO is on if applicable.
        FMSTEP        - Sets the setting for FM STEP in KHZ
        AMSTEP        - Sets the setting for AM STEP in KHZ
        SSBSTEP       - Sets the setting for SSB STEP in KHZ
        CTCSSTONE     - Sets the CTCSS Tone
        DCSCODE       - Sets the DCS Code
        CLARIFIER     - Sets the CLARIFIER on or off
        CLAROFFSET    - Sets the polarity and offset frequency of the clarifier
        RXFREQ        - Sets the stored Receive Frequency
        RPTOFFSETFREQ - Sets the stored Repeater offset Frequency

        If you have never used the QMB/MTQMB option on the radio, the memory addresses will show garbled data.
        Its simply easier to first send some arbitrary data to the channels in the radio by following the instructions
        on manual page 44.  This is not a requirment, if you dont use QMB or MTQMB you do not need to do this.
