I am going to make some cables, starting with CAT control.None of them, there's a separate port on the DRAWS that gives you a

THAT, is what you want for doing CAT. Or you provide a separate cable
hooked up via USB.
I'll ultimately be doing something similar with mine: plan is to use a
RTL-SDR to scan for activity and use the CAT interface on my FT-857D to
switch the VFO to that frequency to give me dual-watch capabilities,
APRS and WiFi operation from my phone; as it would seem a FM/SSB set
capable of HF/VHF/UHF doesn't exist.
