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.
