What does it do?


FTBVX8J is a memory management program for the Yaesu VX-8 and VX-8D Japanese model handheld transceiver. The program will not read/write a non-Japanese model of the radio nor will it read non-Japanese memory images from disk. For non-Japanese models of the VX-8 please use FTBVX8. For model VX-8G radios use FTBVX8G or FTBVX8GJ.

It enables you to:
  • backup/restore the cloneable memory
  • modify memory definitions
  • add and delete memory definitions
  • manage which memories are in which banks
  • sort memories by frequency or name
  • analyse and report on duplicate frequencies
  • edit the PMS memories
  • edit the Home memories
  • edit the frequency, mode and other settings in the band VFOs
  • edit the radio's Menu settings and APRS/GPS settings

    The Import/Export facility enables you to exchange memory information between the following radios by using .CSV format memory definition files. You will also need to use the appropriate FTBxxx software for the target radio.
  • FT-817, FT-847, FT-857, FT-897 (including ND and D models), FT-1802, FT-1807, FT-2800, FT-7800, FT-7900, FT-8800, FT-8900, FT-1D, FT-60, VR-5000, VX-3, VX-8, VX-110, VX-150, VX-120, VX-170, VX-177, VX-270
  • VX-2, VX-5, VX-6, VX-7 - using the Commander range of software by Jim Mitchell, KC8UNJ

    Memory definitions can also be imported from TravelPlus for Repeaters using .TPE files, and from ButelSoftware's ARC250.

    Sample memories files are provided so that you may explore the editing facilities available without having a radio or cable to connect to your PC.
