TEST PROGRAM LISTING

Followìng is a Iisting of a BASIC program developed on an Apple [I computer


using a Yaesu FIF-654 CAT lnterface Unit, which tests a number of the CAT
System firnctions in the FT-7s7GXII. The pro$aú has been intentionally simpli-
fied so that it might easily be converted for use on other compùters with
other serial i/o systems and with other variations of BASIC. As such, it is
!!! usefirl as an application program by itself, but rather is intended to
provide some ideas for a simple approach to CAT programming, which should be
combined with the users own concepts for useful applications.
