FT8CN Android app with Yaesu FT-857D

Just bought the Digirig mobile and cables.
Has anyone used the FT8CN Android app with their 857/817?

Just tried it with my Samsung note 10, X5105 and Digirig and it works well.

Thanks for reporting this good news. That encourages me to try out that Android app…less power than a laptop.

Looks like this is an old thread, but since it’s been bumped, I’ll add on:

Slightly different hardware, but I can confirm FT8CN is working for me with Digirig to my Yaesu FT-897D.

I’ve found success with FT8CN on:

  • Yaesu FT-897D
  • Xeigu G90
  • Xeigu GSOC (bluetooth CAT)

For all three, I’ve used both:

  • Google Pixel 4a 5G smartphone
  • Amazon Fire tablet
    each pairing working flawlessly with FT8CN and Digirig.

Yup, got it working no issues.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A
OTG adapter (USB-C to USB-A)

RTS rig control rather than CAT.
