Yaesu FTM100DE APRS C4FM Transceiver

The FTM-100DE incorporates a wide range of System Fusion and analogue features with the Single Feature Design equipped with a Dot-Matrix Display.  The newly designed display of the FTM-100DE is a very compact, vibrant and highly visible White-LED backlit display (160×40 Full Dot-Matrix) and includes a bright multi-coloured Mode/Status Indicator on its faceplate.  This Indicator is a very useful feature that visibly and clearly informs the operator of the state of the transceiver.  For instance, it indicates what mode the radio is in by changing from Green (Analogue) to Blue (Digital) when receiving a signal, and the operator can easily recognize what signal is being received at a glance!

The FTM-100DE utilizes Automatic Mode Select (AMS), which is one of the most distinguishing features of System Fusion that instantly recognizes whether a transmission is analogue or digital and appropriately switches the operating modes to allow flawless co-existence of both analogue and digital communication.  In addition to AMS, the following attractive features are available with the FTM-100DE which should satisfy and fit most amateur radio operator’s needs, such as Smart Navigation, Digital Group Monitor (GM) featuring telemetry data and ID transmission, WIRES-X, a full featured 1200/9600bps APRS system, a built-in high sensitivity 66 channel GPS Antenna, GPS logging capability, voice guide and recording function, micro SD card slot (for both programming and data storage), and Bluetooth hands-free operation.

Thanks to all the above carefully selected feature configurations, the FTM-100DE is at a very attractive price point and will be widely spread as an ideal communication product among both entry level and advanced ham radio enthusiasts.

Heil Pro 7 headset

Heil Pro 7 headset

Pro7-3-Blue Pro7-3-R Pro7-3-sThe Heil Pro 7 headset offers a feature set that compliments the Heil Sound standard for headset design. Unlike copies of various aviation type headsets, the PRO 7 is not a copy. It brings newtechnologyto the headset industry. The 2″ thick gel foam ear pads provide extreme comfort for extended periods of time while exhibiting passive noise reduction rated at -26dB, ideal for use in high ambient noise environments. Using technology Bob Heil learned from Paul Klipsch back in the early 70’s, the ear cup enclosures were tuned to the free air cone resonance of the speaker cone thus providing very low distortion with maximum voice articulation providing the ultimate sound reproduction for communications. Theexclusive Heil Phase Reversal system (HPR) allows you to acoustically move the signals forward and creates a spatial widening of the sound field. This feature makes it easier to pull a weak signal from a pileup – useful for DxPeditions and contests as well as a stress reliever as your change the phase angle of the program source. A speaker balance control allows preferred level between the speakers.

The PRO 7 has interchangeable microphone system allows the microphone element to be easily changed in the field for different types of applications. The low distortion Dynamic HC-7 element exhibits a frequency response of 100 Hz – 12 kHz with the -3dB points at 100 Hz and 12 kHz. The traditional Heil speech articulation rise is centered at 2K -4KHz with properly balanced highs and lows. The impedance is 600 ohm. The HC-7 is one of our best microphone elements for speech articulation.

Designed exclusively for iCOM radios, the iC Electret element has a -3dB fixed point at 35 Hz and 12kHz with the sensitivity of-48 at 1500 ohms output centered at 1kHz. The iC element solves the problems with LOW GAIN ICOM radios but can also work with great results on newer Icom models. Bias power is applied to operate the iC electret element. The Pro 7 iC is supplied with our ADl-iC eight pin iCOM adapter cable.

The latest version of the Pro 7 features a monitor jack. The monitor feature allows a second operator to plug in headphones to the Pro 7 to monitor audio.

The Pro 7 and Pro 7iC come in black, red, blue or pink.

The balance control located on the LEFT speaker, controls only the left speaker. Begin by setting a comfortable right side speaker level with the AF gain of the receiver. You then adjust the left side speaker where necessary to balance the audio between the speakers. In most cases the balance control will be close to or maximum.
