SB-2000MK2 USB Radio Interface
New features of SB2000MK2, compared to SB2000, include:
..1. Support TWO Serial Ports Now.
The new FT-2232 USB-to-UART chip supports 2 serial ports. So user can operate CAT/CI-V rig control in one serial port and operating digital operation on another serial poer at the same time.
..2. More fast speed rate foe CAT/CI-V.
* Connect your computer with USB Port. No need serial or parallel port.
Most of Radio programs are built based on COM serial port of PC computer. But the most latest PC computers don’t have a serial port.
* USB to UART bridge by FT232 single chip. USB 2.0 compliant. Full speed.
To be compatible with the legacy radio program, we still have to keep using serial port. That’s why we choose to use USB to UART bridge which converts the USB to serial port. FT232R is very reliable industry single-chip USB to UART bridge.
* CAT, CI/V controller and audio transformer are combined together.
No sophisticate software setting. Very clearly operate from reachable setting on the control panel. It supports CAT with RS232 protocol. So it’s compatible with the most latest transceivers.
* Complete isolation between computer and radio station.
Optical isolation used for digital signal. Audio signal isolated 1:1 transformer. It has internal static isolation. Excellent EMC(Electromagnetic compatibility).
* Operated by computer USB power. No need extra power.
When you are in your expedition or mobile, you will not have extra power headache with SB-2000. It uses the power from your computer’s USB port.
* Very compact size, easy to carry.
Weight less than 400 grams. Pocket size only.
* Supply with full accessories.:
It comes with USB, CAT or CI/V, Data and audio cables.
SB-2000 links your radio transceiver with the computer.
* Control radio operation via CAT, CI/V.:
You can control your radio if it supports CAT or CI/V protocol from your computer.
* Operate RTTY, PSK31, SSTV, FAX, etc. digital mode.
From your computer you can easily operate digital mode with proper software. Turn your computer into a professional expensive DTE.
* Transmit and receive CW.
If you want to be relax operate CW, you can choose to use software to send or receive CW. Use your computer keyboard instead of paddle or straight key. Read all received Morse code from your computer screen.
* Support ECHOLINK to control remote station.
* Record your SSB voice session.
* Support FSK operation.
* The earlier SB-2000 only supports up to 14400bps which is fast enough for most rig control operation. And its more stable than more higher speed. Please check your transceivers manual for how to change the speed.
* For some yaesu transceivers, if it can not be transmitted due to low AF-input level. Please check the transceivers manual for increasing the AF level.
* For Yaesu FT-2000, please go to Setting menu 029 GEnE CAT RTS, set it as OFF. Then you can use CAT function properly.
* For Yaesu FT-450, please go to Setting menu CAT RST, set is as DISABLE. Then you can use CAT function properly.
