[DISCLAIMER/NOTICE: This is NOT an official Yaesu guide. I just created this online guide to help fellow hams set-up their own nodes easily. Some are having a hard time learning from the different manuals. I'm not an expert. I'm offering this page as an alternate tutorial/guide. Most of the content are collated from different official Yaesu and Wires-x manuals and literature. You may access them directly at the Yaesu official website and YouTube videos.] - 73 Rom DU1YQ

If you don't see your HRI-200 serial number auto-populated in the "Serial No." box, please check/reinstall your driver, make sure that it's properly configured. In most cases, problems are from bad driver installation and/or Windows computer.
