With the FT-3DE Yaesu expands its range of radios supporting the digital 'System Fusion' world.
The FT-3DE is a true dual-band device for VHF (144 MHz) and UHF (430MHz) with two receivers. I.e. you can receive two signals at the same time, also mixed digital/analog. The two radio bands can be combined at will (V+V, U+U, V+U, U+V). In addition, the device is equipped with a broadband receiver from 500 kHz to 999 MHz (band A) or 108 to 580 MHz (band B). So you can comfortably listen to the radio while waiting for a call on the local repeater. The transmission power is max. 5 W, adjustable in 4 steps (0.3, 1, 2.5, 5 W).
As with all Yaesu C4FM 'System Fusion' radios, the FT-3DE can automatically distinguish between FM and C4FM incoming transmissions, so you don't miss a call. The FT-3DE is also particularly flexible when used as a mobile C4FM hotspot. With an optional cable set (SCU-39), the radio can be connected to a computer connected to the Internet. A radio cell for C4FM can be set up at its location (hotspot function, operation as an access point). This is very practical for fielddays or contests where several participants need access to the worldwide Wires-X network. The nice thing about it is that the FT-3DE can still be used as a radio while providing hotspot functions.
The very clearly readable colour LCD with 320x240 pixels is particularly striking. The screen is a touch panel which also serves as an input device. This reduces the number of traditional operating elements and simplifies handling. Two knobs at the top allow quick frequency selection and volume adjustment. The FT-3DE is also equipped with a GPS antenna and offers APRS functions. If desired, the device can also be used as a simple GPS tracker, i.e. only for recording a covered hiking trail. With C4FM, the position data is transmitted parallel to the voice signal and is used by the remote station to indicate direction and distance. This tactical display also works when receiving a C4FM signal with GPS information. The received data can be stored on an optionally available SD memory card in addition to the configuration of the device.
The built-in Bluetooth module is important for convenient, hands-free operation of the FT-3DE. With the optionally available BT headset SSM-BT10, you can make your hiking experience more comfortable while keeping the radio in your pocket or backpack. Vox operation is also possible, other compatible BT headsets can also be used.
