The new FT-70DR/DE is a compact and very attractively priced YAESU System Fusion transceiver providing both conventional analogue FM operation and the advanced C4FM digital mode.
The FT-70DR/DE provides up to 5W of reliable RF power, and its large Front Speaker delivers 700mW of loud audio output. As C4FM has better BER (Bit Error Rate) characteristics than other digital modulation modes the user can expect exceptional audio quality.
The new digital FT-70DR/DE includes our unique Automatic Mode Select (AMS) function. AMS detect the operating mode of the received signal as digital C4FM or analogue FM and then automatically and instantly switches the receiver to the appropriate mode. Users do not need to manually change between modes.
The multi-coloured LED mode indicator on the front allows the operator to easily see what mode the FT-70DE is in at any given moment. The LED mode indicator clearly shows transmit and receive mode by changing its colour so that the operating mode of the transceiver is easily recognized at a glance.
One of the other distinguishing features of the FT-70DE is Digital Group Monitor (GM) with DG-ID and DP-ID. DG-ID (Digital Group Identification) and DP-ID (Digital Personal Identification) are useful features now included in the FT-70DE, to simplify the GM operation. Simply put the transceivers with the same DG-ID or DP-ID can communicate with each other. DG-ID and DP-ID are selectable between 00 and 99, which provides flexibility so that users can enjoy group communication with friends in GM mode in accordance to their individual operational needs.
Other included standard features and functions are: IP54 Rating, wide band receive from 108 – 579.995 MHz, Versatile scanning capabilities such as Programmable VFO Scan, Memory Scan and priority channel scan. External DC jack for DC supply operation and battery charging. Mini USB port for convenient programming and software updates. CTCSS / DCS operation, Automatic Power Off (APO) feature, RF Squelch, Transmitter Time Out Timer (TOT) and Busy Channel Lock Out (BCLO).

- This is a fabulous entry-level Fusion dual bander. I was sceptical about trying the mode after using DMR, but have not looked back since purchasing the FT-70. It did everything I wanted and more besides. great battery life, so easy to use, rugged and rain proof too. I cannot recommend highly enough. It has accompanied me on many walks in the mountains and with the dog. Terrific audio and great fun to use with through a repeater, access node or hotspot. If you do consider one, it's also worth investing a little in the fast charger too.
