Real Dual Band Operation (V+V, U+U, V+U, U+V) is available with two independent receivers, and the FTM-300DE supports simultaneous C4FM digital monitoring for both the A and B bands. A 2-inch High-Resolution QVGA Full-Color TFT Display clearly highlights the frequency and operation bands. Plus with the Band Scope Function, users can monitor up to 63 channels centered around the current VFO frequency in real time. (21 channels in memory channel mode)
Memory Channel Band Auto Grouping (MBAG) is one of the advanced features of the FTM-300DE. Memory channels are automatically categorized in each band, and memory channels can be easily and quickly recalled by 4 Band Groups – Airband (MAIR), VHF (M-VHF), UHF (M-UHF) and 174 – 400 / 480 – 999.99 MHz (M-GEN). 3 W audio power speaker ensures a clear and crisp audio – that has been specifically tuned for quality audio. Two individual external speaker jacks are provided. Users can output the VFO A and B band Receiver to separate speakers or mix A and B signals when a single external speaker is used.
Built-in Bluetooth unit is installed in the FTM-300DE. This enables the hands-free operation with the YAESU SSM-BT10 or a commercially available product. The SSM-BT10 is equipped with a PTT button and also supports VOX operation. Using the new USB charger cable – SCU-41 with the controller of the FTM-300DE, the SSM-BT10 can be easily charged. The SSM-BT10 works for approximately 20 hours on single charge. The FTM-300DE supports both the WiRES-X Portable Digital Node function and Fixed Node function with the HRI-200. Since simultaneous C4FM monitoring on both VFO A and VFO B is possible, users can enjoy both WiRES-X communications on one channel while monitoring another local channel at the same time.
Other advanced features of the new FTM-300DE include; DG-ID (Digital ID); Group Monitor; positional awareness from the builtin 66ch High Sensitivity GPS receiver enabling Real Time Navigation; Backtrack feature; a GPS Terminal for an external GPS receiver; 1200 / 9600 APRS data modem for APRS mode; Voice Recording of both Received and Transmitted audio; save and load data including configuration and memory channel information to a micro SD card; Snapshot function using the optional MH85A11U camera microphone.
