The Yaesu FT5-DE is a full-featured C4FM handheld transceiver with superior operability and new sophisticated functions. Even in a compact body 62 x 101 x 34 mm (W x H x D), the FT5-DE provides reliable 5W RF power output and achieves loud 1W audio power that has been tuned for quality audio. Real Dual Band Operations (V+V, U+U, V+U, U+V) are available with two independent receivers. Large individual LED indicators for A band and B band present the status and communication modes (C4FM or Analog) of each band instantly. The new FT5-DE supports simultaneous C4FM digital (C4FM/C4FM standby).
With rubber protection on the corner of the main body, the FT5-DE has rugged and shock-resistant construction. The waterproof rating is IPx7. The comfortable size and form of the full-flat back body provides excellent grasp for the radio operator.
A high-resolution display highlights the frequency of the operational band. The color of the operating band frequency can be selected from white, blue or red. Three (3) touch panel keys and seven (7) operation keys below the display offer intuitive operability.
Touch & Go Operation
The new Touch & Go operation is convenient in order to immediately start the communications on an often-used frequency. By pressing and holding the “PMG” key, the frequency of the current display is registered into Primary Memory Group. After registration, pressing the “PMG” key will display the receive status of the registered frequencies as bars on a graph (activity monitor). By simply touching the displayed bar, the user can instantly recall that frequency.
Band Scope function monitors in real time, up to 79 displayed channels that are centered around the current VFO frequency. The center frequency can be tuned by the dial knob or by touching and moving the frequency of a displayed channel bar.
