SDR enabled YAESU FT897D

Nothing great but I enjoyed it.. Over the week-end, I decided to continue my long abandoned project. That is to add SDR into my Yaeusu FT-897D. I received the PAT board from G4HUP quite long ago. You can find it here. I followed the instructions and installed it inside my FT-897. Then I figure out that the empty compartment underneath the radio is a better place for the SDR dogle. The pre-drilled hole is perfect for mounting the USB-B to USB-A through connector. I bought it from RS Components and mounted it as per picture below.

Now, I have my FT-897D SDR enabled.. or sort of.. I of course need to use other interface for the CAT  and also HDSDR software.
