Description :

The FT3D, or FT3DR in USA/Asia/Australia and FT3DE in Europe, is an C4FM / FM dual band digital transceiver with high operability. FT3D's high resolution 320 x 240 dot matrix full color TFT LCD display highlights the frequency of the operational band and also displays the Mode, Status and Function setting menu using the touch screen functions of the display for changing the mode, direct frequency entry and various settings from the function menu display. Frequently used functions have been assigned to dedicated keys at the bottom of the display enabling quick and easy access using one of the One-Touch button arrangement.

Main features: Compact and reliable 5 Watts of RF power output. 700 mW of high quality audio. Easy hand-free operation with built-in Bluetooth unit. Simultaneous C4FM/C4FM standby, supports simultaneous digital monitoring for both the A and B bands. Real dual band operation (V+VHF, V+UHF, U+UHF) with two indipendet receivers. Simultaneous AM/FM broadcast reception and 2-channel monitoring. Snapshot feature, transmit/receive image data. Excellent features of C4FM communication, sophisticated digital group ID operation, digital group monitor, FM / digital automatic mode select. Built-in high precision GPS. 1200/9600 bps APRS data communication. Gigh resolution band scope with fast display of up to 79 channels. Club channel activity monitor. Audio recording function, A-band / B-band or both and the transmit voice. Micro SD card slot. 2200 mAh high capacity Li-ion battery.

WIRES-X portable digital node. In Direct Operation the transceiver is uded only for internet communications without transmitting or receiving local on-air radio signals. In Access Point Operation the transceiver can be used to communicate on-air and relay nearby local C4FM rtx while simultaneously connected with the internet digital node stations.
