Yaesu UK advise there will be some delay before the next shipment
Since autumn 2015 Yaesu has introduced the FTM-400XDR/DE. The differences to the earlier available FTM-400DE are an improved GPS receiver with with 66 channels, which offers a shorter time to first fix (TTF).
Further the FTM-400XDR/DE will be equipped with a small, easy to open cap on the top, allowing quick and easy firmware upgrades without opening the radio as before.
The Yaesu FTM-400XDR/DE dual band mobile transceiver operates on 2 meters and 70 centimeters. The new FTM-400XDE provides four modes:
V/D mode is Voice and Data communication in the same time frame. Stable and reliable digital voice and data communications are maintained using extraordinarily strong error correction capabilities. This mode will be the basic mode of C4FM FDMA Digital HAM radio.
Voice FR mode uses the full rate of data capacity for voice data. This mode enables you to transfer clear, high quality voice data.
Data FR mode uses the full rate of data capacity for transferring data. This mode enables you to transfer large amounts of data, text messages, images, and voice memo data with double speed in V/D mode.
Analogue FM mode is effective when weak signal strength causes audio drop out in the digital mode, and enables communication up to the borderline of the noise level.
The radio features an Automatic Mode Select (AMS) function to identify these four modes and select them automatically when the radio receives a signal!
Power is selectable at 50, 20 or 5 watts on either band. Enjoy very wideband receive from 108-470 and 800-999 MHz (less cellular). Four scan modes are supported: VFO, Memory, Programmable Memory or Selected Memory. 500 Memories per band are available. Each memory can store: frequency, mode, tag, repeater information, tone, DCS, antenna squelch information, memory skip information and transmission output. The screen background may be set to any of 5 colors (green, blue, orange, purple or gray). The FTM-400XDE can capture images and video by connecting a USB camera (not supplied) and transmit and receive them. There is a port for a microSD card.
The FTM-400XDR/DE is supplied with : MH-48A6JA DTMF hand mic, mounting bracket, bracket for controller, 9.8ft control cable, SCU-20 PC connection cable, DC power lead, and instruction manual.
There is no to lose communications with friends who have not yet chosen to transistion to Digital. The FTM-400XDE performs perfectly well using both Analogue FM and C4FM Digital.
