1.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.
2.USB to UART bridge by FT2232 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. The new FT2232 supports 2 serial ports. Therefore user could use 1 port for rig control and another port for digital operation.
3.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 itĄŊs compatible with the most latest transceivers.
4.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)
5.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 computerĄŊs USB port.
6.Very compact size, easy to carry.
Weight less than 400 grams. Pocket size only.
7.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.
1.Control radio operation via CAT, CI/V.
You can control your radio if it supports CAT or CI/V protocol from your computer.
2.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.
3.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.
4.Support ECHOLINK to control remote station.
5.Record your SSB voice session.
6.Support FSK operation.

Although SB-2000 MK2 supports the CAT/CIV connection up to 38400bps, but we strongly suggest user to set at 9600bps.
Once you connect the SB-2000 MK2 to your computer, there will come out two serial ports. Always use the first one as digital operation and the second one as rig control.
For some yaesu transceivers, if it can not be transmitted due to low AF-input level. Please check the transceiver's manual for increasing the AF level.
For some yaesu transceivers, if there is a menu item which named is CAT RTS. Please set it off. Then the CAT function will work properly.
