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 powerlevel (5W/ 2.5W/ 1W/ 0.3W) individually selectable. Even in a compact body, the user can enjoy loud and clear C4FMvoice quality from 700mW of audio power. Real Dual Band Operation (V+V, U+U, V+U, U+V) are available with twoindependent 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

- Excellent digital handheld, building on the FT 2D
If you have owned a FT-2D like me before buying this radio you will find it a piece of cake to use. They’ve taken all the great stuff from the 2D, made those features even better and then added a whole load of new stuff that makes this a great radio.
Build quality is excellent as you would expect. For the size of radio receive audio is good. Reports I have received on FM and digital are all excellent. Battery life is really good too. I’ve used this radio a lot and I’ve not charged it yet. The colour display is excellent and they have improved the touch screen sensitivity (it’s not great on the 2D).
Bluetooth hands free works brilliantly with the Yaesu SSM-BT10.
The only negative is that with the display in power save mode (back light off) you can’t really see the display (you can on the 2D). Not a huge issue but just worth mentioning.
All in all it’s a great radio and I would buy another if anything happened to this one.
