  • Status changed from New to Blocked
  • Chirp Version set to 0.2.2

This is blocked until a dev can get their hands on a radio. See Rules For Loaning A Radio if you have one you're willing to loan.

I have just picked up a used FT-1500M and would be willing to loan it before I put it into use on an Echolink node.

I would like to help clear the oldest open new model request

I am willing to send mine in - I created a new request before I saw this one in blocked status

Yaesu FT-1500M - Uses an RJ22 microphone plug for programming
There are a couple of other Yaesu models already supported using the same RJ22 connector FT-2800 FT-7800
USB Programming cable will be included
2 Meter with 137 to 174 Mhz Receiver coverage
149 memory channels, including 130 "regular" memories, 9 pairs of band-edge memories, and an instant-recall "Home" channel

I am willing to look at this. I will contact Andrew via email. (Also added to #2513)

If either of the above loaner radios do not work out, please feel free to contact me Chris. My club has a number of these radios and programming cables for which we would love to see support.

I too am willing to loan a Yaesu FT1500M radio to get this working with Chirp.

Updated by Jared Smith almost 2 years ago

Or, if it's easier to send me instructions on how to capture the data going back and forth from the radio and use that to build a new driver for Chirp, I'm willing to invest some time doing that as well.

Seriously, Equipment Loan Offered set to NO????

I have over 25 of these radios. I will send all TWENTY-FREAKING-FIVE in at my own expense to get this radio finally supported and what is possibly the oldest open issue closed. This offer does not expire until I do.

I have 4 of these radios for our county Emergency Operations Center. We're going to use them as a Packet Winlink gateway to our AREDN network. They are vital to our EOCs mission, but such a pain to program.
I am willing to give one of these to the Chirp team for development of software.
