SWL-IR

While the Yaesu FRG-100 is a great radio for shortwave listening, it is lacking a keypad for direct frequency entry. With the SWL IR Remote you can enter frequencies directly, move quickly up and down through frequencies, enter memory channels directly, move quickly up and down through memories, and control modes of the receiver. All of the features available through the CAT interface that apply to IR remote operation of the FRG-100 have been implemented in the SWL IR Remote. Yaesu does not provide a means to control the Volume or Squelch using the CAT interface. Hook up is simple. Use the supplied cable to connect the SWL IR remote to the 6 pin DIN "CAT jack" on the back of the FRG-100 (you do not need the FIF-232C). Once the FRG-100 power is turned on, you can use the remote (after the FRG-100 power button is turned on, you can use the remote to turn the radio on and off).

Please note that this device requires a Universal Remote Control (not supplied). The AC wall adapter and CAT cable are included. Click here to view quick reference sheet [PDF 63K].
