Yaesu offers you the dual mode repeater
for a smooth transition from traditional FM mode to digital C4FM modulation. This relay is capable of both operation modes, the automatic mode select (AMS) recognizes the signal as C4FM digital or conventional FM and then the DR-1XE repeater retransmits the signal using the preset communications mode. This makes operating in FM as well as C4FM with only one relay possible.
The DR-1XE relay is shipped as a professional 19″ system, an extrnal power supply (13.8V, 15A) is required. The repeater can be used either on 2m (144-146MHz) or 70cm (430-440MHz). Programming is done very comfortably via a large, coloured touch display on the front. With that you can program ‘Id’ (call sign), transmission and receiving frequency, transmission power (5, 20 or 50W), CTCSS, squelch and the automatic modulation select (AMS). Frequencies can be adjusted in 5 or 6.25kHz steps.
The device requires 13.8V, max. 15A for operation. The DC cable is included. The repeater has an internal loudspeaker for local checking, also a microphone can be plugged in for testing the transmitter.
