If you have the rear Port selected already, you may be experiencing the same noise as I have on the DRAWS hat, with the ft-891. I'm very suspicious of Johns comment regarding the ft-891 working "well" with the DRAWS hat.

I'm sorry I never finished that thread with the ft-891. I was so frustrated, I needed to put everything down, let the documentation and beta images mature, then come back to it.
