FTBasicMMO provides memory management for the FT-817, FT-847, FT-857 and FT-897 transceivers including the D and ND versions and radios that have been modified to change the frequency coverage.
The program can be used to keep a backup of the memories and all of the radio's settings which can be reloaded in the event of a radio reset being required.
By exporting and re-importing in Comma Separated Variable (CSV) format you can transfer memories from one radio to another.
The program runs on a standard PC that has an available COM port for connection to the transceiver. The COM port may be a conventional Serial port or one attached to a USB adapter. It has been developed and tested on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. It will not run on Windows 8 RT version which does not support desktop applications. The minimum screen resolution is 800 x 600 but 1024 x 768 is recommended.
