FGB-5000 Menu Transfer Manager

Home made small utility (beta) may be useful to see and save/reload on a PC all the 177 menu setting of the FT-5000. It’s only a small add on to start to check all the menus and their meanings and have a look at the range of possible variations from the factory defaults. I’m not a professional programmer so this is just one toy for my need.




  • PC with Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. It should work also on Windows XP and Vista (never tested).

  • Microsoft Dot Net 4.0 Framework libraries (normally already installed in 99% of the computers today). If you don’t have it, you can download and install it for free from the Microsoft official web site at :

  • CAT interface connected to the RTX (just a serial cable is enough).

  • RTX Yaesu FT-5000 (with latest firmware) connected to the PC via serial port (or via USB Serial Port emulator).


At hardware level, if you already have a computer connected to the RTX (for example for same Cat control program as Ham Radio Deluxe) you don’t need anything else.

Once installed, you can download your RTX menu, display in table view, save it in a file, reload your setting into RTX from file, export your setting into a human readble format as in text or excel files.
