CTCSS and DCS Encode / Decode Built In:  For easy repeater access, or silent monitoring of busy channels, both CTCSS and DCS (Digital Coded Squelch) Encoder/Decoder circuits are built-in. CTCSS and DCS configuration data may be stored independently in each memory channel. A “Split Tone” mode also allows operation on systems where CTCSS and DCS are used separately on the repeater uplink / downlink.

Extensive Memory System: The FT-2980R provides a total of 221 memory channels, including 200 regular memories, ten pairs of band-limit memories, and an instant-recall “Home” channel you can dedicate to a frequently-used repeater or simplex frequency. Memories can store repeater shift information, CTCSS / DCS data, power output level, scanning status (Skip), and Alpha-Numeric labels.

Alpha-Numeric Channel Display: Memory channels may be displayed either with the channel frequency or a personalized Alpha-Numeric label, for easy channel recognition. Up to six letters, characters, or numbers may be used for labelling channels.

WIRES Internet Linking Access Feature: The FT-2980R includes a conveniently-located Internet key, for quick access to Internet-linked repeater systems. Internet repeater linking allows you to use your FT-2980R to talk to other Amateur throughout the world, with outstanding voice signal quality. The Internet key may be configured to send either a single DTMF digit, or a DTMF string, for operation on a WIRES (Wide-Coverage Internet Repeater Enhancement System) repeater, or on other Internet-linked repeaters using DTMF tone access.

Excellent Receiver Performance: The FT-2980R’s receiver front end features Yaesu’s renowned Advanced Track Tuning RF input filtering, which affords outstanding protection from Intermodulation distortion.

Large LCD Display: The large 6 digits backlit LCD on the FT-2980R ensures excellent visibility

Loud Audio with Internal Speaker: The FT-2980R packs 3W BIG watts of Loud Audio with its own Internal Speaker for those noisy environments.

Now with 80 Watts of Power Output: 80 Watts of Solid RF Power with no cooling Fan Needed! Four selectable power output levels are provided: 80 / 30 / 10 / 5 Watts. The power selection may be stored in memory, allowing you to conserve power while using strong local repeaters.
