FT-817/ND Cheat Sheets
Not having a perfect memory, especially under
pressure I created some cheat sheets that I could stick/laminate to my
radio. I tried to keep the text as large as possible yet still fit
in the space allowed but nonetheless they may be slightly hard to read
for tired eyes :-) I recommend printing them on a color inkjet
printer on photographic quality paper and using clear shipping tape to
attach them to your radio and protect them from moisture.
On the top side of my radio I have two reminder sheets:
The first runs the length of the radio and lists the U.S. General
Class operating permissions for the bands the 817 can transmit on.
The sheet itself is slightly narrower than standard shipping tape so it
can be attached to the radio and is protected at the same time.
General Class Cheat
The second lists the common
QRP Calling Frequencies and fits just above the speaker. This
sheet is also slightly narrower than standard shipping tape.
The final sheet lists the various functions of the "A, B, & C"
buttons and the different reset levels and is designed to fit on the
battery cover leaving room for the W4RT quick charge battery connector.
Functions & Menu Cheat Sheet
This sheet will need two strips of shipping tape to cover and attach to
the battery cover.
