We are pleased to introduce the new 5W C4FM/FM 144/430MHz Dual Band Digital Transceiver – FT3DE.
The new FT3DE provides reliable 5W RF power output in compact design and light weight from factor – W62mm x
H100mm x D32.5mm/ 282g. Battery power-saving settings are available for each frequency band with TX output power
level (5W/ 2.5W/ 1W/ 0.3W) individually selectable. Even in a compact body, the user can enjoy loud and clear C4FM
voice quality from 700mW of audio power. Real Dual Band Operation (V+V, U+U, V+U, U+V) are available with two
independent receivers, and the FT3DE supports simultaneous C4FM digital monitoring for both the A and B bands
(C4FM/C4FM standby).
The new FT3DE is designed with a high-resolution 320 x 240 dot matrix full colour TFT LCD display – which clearly
highlights the frequency of the operational bands. Utilizing the Touch Sensitive Screen function of the display, three-onetouch-
panel keys at the bottom of the display are used for changing the mode, direct frequency entry and various setting
from the function menu display with ease of use in mind. With its highly visible full colour display, the new High-
Resolution Band Scope function is available as one of the new advanced features which enables users to monitor up to 79
channels centred around the current VFO frequency in real time. Number of channels scanned is selectable from 19ch/
39ch/ 79ch.
The features of the C4FM digital communication which are already popular in the market such as Automatic Mode Select
(AMS), Digital Group ID (DG-ID) operation, and Smart Navigation function are available with the new FT3DE. The new
FT3DE supports the WiRES-X Portable Digital Node Function as well. In the same way as some other current C4FM
transceivers, users can easily set up a portable digital node with the new FT3DE and the optional SCU-39 cable kit and
enjoy the WiRES-X internet communication.
CAM (Club Channel Activity Monitor) function is one of the new and advanced features of the FT3DE. Up to 10 groups
with 5 channels per group each, of frequency used memory channels can be registered, and whist receiving on the current
channel, the signal strength of this channel and past peaks of the other channels in the group can be displayed and
monitored. With a single touch of a channel bar graph, it becomes the active operating channel and the FT3DE users may
immediately start communicating with other club members on that channel.
A built-in Bluetooth unit is installed in the new FT3DE. Users can enjoy the Hands-Free Operation using the optional
YAESU Bluetooth headset SSM-BT10 or a commercially available product. SSM-BT10 is equipped with the PTT button and
supports the voice activated transmission (VOX) function.
Other remarkable features of the new FT3DE include: Wide-range RX coverage with continuous reception from 0.5MHz –
999.99MHz (A Band)/ 108MHz – 580MHz (B Band): Built-in high-sensitivity 66 channel GPS receiver: 1200/ 9600bps APRS
Data modem: 2,200mAh High-Capacity Li-ion Battery Pack (SBR-14LI) as standard: Voice Recording Function for the
received and transmitting voice and audio data which can be saved as an audio file on the micro SD card: simultaneous
AM/FM broadcast Reception while monitoring two frequency channels: micro SD Card Slot.
