Yaesu FTM-300D

New Dual Band C4FM Mobile transceiver from Yaesu

Yaesu FTM 300D

Yaesu introduces the new dual band VHF UHF CFM mobile transceiver

The new FTM-300D seriers offers a stable and reliable 50W RF output power.

Like YAESU’s latest mobile transceivers, the FTM-300DR is equipped with a high-performance heat sink containing the exclusive FACC (Funnel Air-Convection Conductor – Wind Tunnel).

FTM-300D Series will include:

USA version: FTM-300DR – European version: FTM-300DE – Japan FTM-300D (50W) FTM-300DS (20W)

True dual band operation (V+U, U+V, V+V, U+U ) is available thanks to two independent receivers. The FTM-300DR also supports simultaneous C4FM digital monitoring in both U and V bands.

The 2-inch high resolution QVGA colour TFT display clearly shows the frequency and operating bands.

With the Band Scope function, users can also monitor up to 63 real-time channels at the current VFO frequency. (21 channels in memory channel mode)

Memory Channel Band Auto Grouping (MBAG) is one of the FTM-300DR’s advanced features. Memory channels are automatically categorized in each band and can be easily and quickly accessed through 4 groups of bands – Airband(M-AIR), VHF(M-VHF), UHF(M-UHF) and 174-400MHz/ 480-999.99MHz (M-GEN).

The powerful 3W speaker ensures clear and crisp sound – specially tuned for audio quality. The FTM-300DR is equipped with two individual external speaker jacks, and you can output the VFO receiver for the A and B bands to separate the speakers or even mix the A and B signals when using a single external speaker.

The FTM-300DR is equipped with a built-in Bluetooth unit. This type of connectivity allows hands-free operation with the YAESU SSMBT10 or equivalent commercially available accessory.

The SSM-BT10 is equipped with a PTT button and also supports VOX operation. With the new USB charging cable – SCU-41 with the FTM-300DR controller, the SSM-BT10 can be easily charged. The SSM-BT10 will operate for approximately 20 hours on a single charge.

The FTM-300DR 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.

The new FTM-300DR includes; DG-ID (Digital ID); Group Monitor; positional awareness from the built-in 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 MH-85A11U camera microphone.
