The installation of a CTCSS encoder/decode module was carried out using the FTS-8px CTCSS module as a direct substitute for the discontinued Yaesu FTS-8 unit. The FTS-8px module was purchased from the Piexx Company
The Piexx Company's encoder/decode module serves as a direct drop-in replacement for the original Yaesu FTS-8 unit. This tone board was utilized in a wide range of Yaesu transceivers, including the FT-736, FT2700RH, FT-2270R, FT-770, FT-767, FT-650, and others.
