The 817 Panadapter kit is installed in the filter slot inside the 817. It doesn’t need any soldering and it’s pretty easy to install.
From the kit two cables come out: one is an audio cable with a female 3.5 jack that has to be attached to the audio in of a PC/Mac or a tablet/smartphone.
The other cable is a 12v power one. And it can be attached to the battery pack inside the 817 (that’s how I do it) but you may find other solutions for that.
All you have to do is enable the SSB filter in the 817 settings menu (menu 38 – OP FILTER).
Using SDR software that are able to use the audio card as an I/Q input, like HDSDR, PowerSDR IF, SharpSDR or gqrx for PC/Mac or my 817Companion app for Android you’ll be able to monitor a badwidth depending on the sample rate of the sound card.
On Android the sample rate is 48kHz and the bandwidth is half the sample rate (so 24kHz). With the 817Companion app you’ll be able to monitor 12kHz above and 12kHz below the used frequency.
With a PC/Mac it can be more.
The kit is also compatible with the Yeasu 857 and the Yaesu 897.
Also they have the advantage to have more slots and not only one like the 817.
The price is $59.99 + $9 for shipping. Shipping cost is the same for one or more items.
For now we have a limited number available and if you are interested contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org for payment instructions.
