If you no longer want your DRAWS, I would like to purchase it.

have an FT-817nd en route to Bryan's lab for him to be
able to duplicate the Yaesu setup. It should arrive
later today. We will try to have an answer for you
after he takes a look at it.
we do test various modes, but we don't have every
radio immediately available.
an 817 myself, but I am antenna challenged at the
moment. (My house is for sale, and all of my external
antennas are taken down, except the garage repeater --
plus I have a very high noise level here, part of the
reason I am planning to move.)

I've been trying for the better part of four days to get
the Yaesu ft-891 and Yaesu ft-817 to work on HF digital
modes, correctly with the DRAWS hat. Many of the answers
to the questions operators are asking are scattered
around the forums in dozens of different threads. This
is beyond frustrating! I would suggest building a Wiki
specifically for the DRAWS hat called "Getting started".
That would solve my first problem which is
documentation, and being forced to read through mostly
irrelevant threads to find the jewels.
I've already run the scripts to set the levels. I've
disabled ax25 and direwolf. I changed the settings from
the 9600 packet port to the data line in mentioned in
John and Bryans thread. I've also read through Basils
threads about troubleshooting. Most of those are
direwolf ax.25relsted threads What I'm left with is a
pretty horrific audio I/O problem.
On transmit: When I transmit, I never get a clean
signal. When I lower the levels I get some sort of
oscillation. There is no sweet spot. it's either too
much or too little.
On the receipt side, even with the cables unplugged
there's a 30 DB noise level emanating from the DRAWS
hat. Signals are barely seen in the waterfall, and
decoding is ridiculously poor.
If I plug in my signalink, my miniproSC or even the USB
audio interface attached to the wolphilink, it's no
problem to get clean audio, and to start decoding
stations I could barely see in the waterfall. I've done
this with js8 call and fldigi, which both work perfectly
with a signalink and zlp miniprosc on the DRAWS image.
I could really use some troubleshooting help.
