|Future Amateur Handheld Transceivers|
The new Yaesu FT3DR is the worthy successor to the FT1DR and FT2DR. It provides reliable 5W RF power output in compact design and light weight from factor (2.44 x 3.94 x 1.28 inches). Battery power-saving settings are available for each frequency band with TX output power level (5/2.5/1/0.3 Watts) individually selectable. Even with the compact body, you will enjoy loud and clear C4FM voice quality from 700mW of audio power. Real Dual Band Operations (V+V, U+U, V+U, U+V) are available with two independent receivers. And the FT3DR supports simultaneous C4FM digital monitoring for both the A and B bands (C4FM/C4FM standby).
The FT3DR is designed with a crisp high-resolution 320 x 240 dot matrix full color TFT LCD display – which clearly highlights the frequency of the operational bands. Utilizing the Touch Sensitive Screen function of the display, three one-touch-panel keys at the bottom of the display are used for changing the mode, direct frequency entry and various setting from the function menu display with ease of use in mind. With its highly visible full color display, the new high-resolution Band Scope function enables users to monitor up to 79 channels centered around the current VFO frequency in real time. Number of channels scanned is selectable from 19, 39 or 79 channels. The already popular Automatic Mode Select (AMS), Digital Group ID (DG-ID) operation, and Smart Navigation function are continued with the new FT3DR.
The FT3DR fully supports the WiRES-X Portable Digital Node Function as well. In the same way as some other current C4FM transceivers, users can easily set up a portable digital node with the new FT3DR and the optional SCU-39 cable kit and enjoy the WiRES-X Internet communication.
CAM (Club Channel Activity Monitor) function is one of the new advanced features of the FT3DR. Up to 10 groups with 5 channels per group each, of frequency used memory channels can be registered, and whist receiving on the current channel, the signal strength of this channel and past peaks of the other channels in the group can be displayed and monitored. With a single touch of a channel bar graph, it becomes the active operating channel and the FT3DR users may immediately start communicating with other club members on that channel.
The built-in Bluetooth® unit can provide the Hands-Free Operation using the optional SSM-BT10 headset or a commercially available products. SSM-BT10 is equipped with the PTT button and supports the voice activated transmission (VOX) function.
Other refinements include: Wide-range receive coverage with reception from 0.5MHz – 999.99MHz [less cellular] (A Band)/ 108MHz – 580MHz (B Band). Built-in high-sensitivity 66 channel GPS receiver: 1200/ 9600bps APRS Data modem: 2,200mAh High-Capacity Li-ion Battery Pack (SBR-14LI) as standard: Voice Recording Function for the received and transmitting voice and audio data which can be saved as an audio file on the micro SD card: simultaneous AM/FM broadcast Reception while monitoring two frequency channels: micro SD Card Slot.
