Yaesu FT-1DR HD (B)
FT1DR C4FM 144/430 MHz Dual Band Digital Handheld Transceiver
The introduction of our FT1DR 12.5 kHz C4FM/FDMA 144/430MHz Dual Band Digital Handheld Transceiver ushers in The Dawn of a New Digital Communications Era in Amateur Radio. Yaesu has introduced the DR-1 Digital Repeater and FTM-400DR Mobile Transceiver products to work with the FT1DR to provide efficient and large data handling capablities not currently available on the Amateur Radio bands.
The most attractive benefit of digital communication is its ability to transfer large amounts of data. The new FT1DR uses 12.5 kHz C4FM FDMA digital modulation mode to enable high speed data communication capability, reliable voice communication with strong error correction performance. C4FM FDMA provides 9.6 kbps data baud rate speed. It is significantly different from existing digital Amateur Radio and expands the opportunities for Amateur radio operators activities in the future.
The new FT1DR provides three digital modes (V/D mode, Voice FR mode, Data FR mode) and a Analog mode:
· V/D mode is Voice and Data communication in the same time frame. This mode enables the transceiver to send voice data with GPS position data and ID data in the same time frame. Also, this mode can pass the voice data with strong error correction data to stabilize the digital communication. This mode will be the basic mode of C4FM FDMA Digital HAM radio.
· Data FR mode uses the full rate of data capacity for transfering 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.
· Voice FR mode uses the full rate of data capacity for voice data. This mode enables you to transfer clear, high quality voice data.
· Analog FM mode is the same as current FM mode allowing you to communicate with all VHF/UHF HAM radio operators.
The new FT1DR has very useful Automatic Mode Select function to identify and automatically select these four modes and when the radio receives a signal.
We included many additional features in the FT1DR to make it standard digital communication equipment for all Amateur Radio operators. Please see the detailed Feature descriptions below. We also recommend viewing and/or downloading the FT1DR Brochure that is available by clicking on the "Files" at the top of above this page.

An easy-to-understand hierarchical menu is also used for the setting modes that allows customization of the FT1DR and makes it convenient to use. Press the ENT key to move to a lower level of the hierarchy, press the DISP key to return to a higher level, and turn the dial to select items or set values. These simple operations can be used to adapt the FT1DR/FT1DE to many communication situationsReal Dual Band Operation (V+V/U+U/V+U)
With two independent receivers, you may listen to either the same or a different band simultaneously.AF Dual Control
Listen to AM or FM radio stations while monitoring two frequency channels! Two independent receivers will allow you to listen to your favorite AM or FM broadcast station, and monitor two different bands (“Band A” and “Band B”) at the same time.Four (4) Communication Modes
The FT1DR operates in one traditional analog mode and three digital modes! Enjoy communication in the mode that best suits your needs. purpose.The Automatic Mode Selection
The Automatic Mode Select function detects the receive signal modeSnapshot Picture Taking Capability
When using the handy speaker microphone camera (optional MH-85A11U), press the shutter button to capture a snapshot, then press the image transmit button to easily transmit the image data.Digital Group Monitor Function
The digital GM function automatically checks whether members registered in a group are within communication range, and displays information such as distance and direction for each call sign on the screen. This convenient function makes it possible not only to see whether any friends are in communication range, but also to instantaneously determines the location and relationship between all members of the group.Band Scope
The FT1DR includes a high resolution band-scope with about 50 channels.Wideband Receive Coverage
Covers 504 kHz - 999.900 MHz (A Band), 108 MHz - 580 MHz (B Band), continuous reception for short-wave, FM/AM broadcasts, aircraft, public service channels, etc.Preset Receiver Function - NOAA Weather, Marine, Shortwave
Preset Receiver Function with an Extensive Range of Major Broadcasting Stations and Various Wireless Information Services. The FT1DR has a preset receiver function with various frequencies in memories, making it easy to call up stations in the various communication services. The frequencies include short-wave broadcasts, international (marine) VHF and NOAA Weather channels.Built-in GPS
