The FTM-100DE increases the variety of products by Yaesu which closely follows the 'System Fusion' strategy. The mobile transceivers provides support for operation in FM (analog) and C4FM (digital) and thus eases the transition from analog to digital radio systems. Of course the "automatic mode switching" (AMS) system by Yaesu is used with the transceiver as well. This feature automatically switches from FM to C4FM on reception of either signal, making it much simpler to operate with repeaters which support both modes. On transmit either the last heard or a fixed mode (FM, C4FM) is used.

 

Optically the most promionent feature is the bright and easy to read, monochrome (white) LC display. With a 160x40 dot matrix display and two coloured indicators the current operation status is always easily visible. The colour indicators show FM or C4FM reception (green, blue) or transmission (red). The graphical display is really helpful when navigating the menu system. The FTM-100DE supports 500 memories per VFO (A/B), of course each memory can be named and the name can be displayed instead of the frequency. In contrast to larger transceivers the FTM-100DE supports only one receiver, so only one signal can be received at any given time. A dual watch feature allows to constantly monitor a second frequency and switch to that frequency on activity (SQL).

 

A GPS antenna required for navigation and APRS functions is already installed in the front panel. This let's you start with APRS operation right away, whether analog or digitally. The FTM-100DE supports all known and required functions for standard APRS, this allows an easy interoperation with established systems worldwide. Various display modes show direction and distance to a remote APRS station or offer a list view of APRS stations. Of course the APRS message servicec and functions like SmartBeaconing are supported as well.

 

Despite the small size of the Yaesu FTM-100DE (140x45x160mm), the radio offers full 50W transmit power on 2m and 70cm. A diplexer is built in, so a dual-band antenna can be directly connected. A slot for microSD memory cards is available, it serves as a storage for memory channels, received digital data (images) etc. Please note that the camera microphone MH-85A11U can not be used with this transceiver. Included in shipment is a 3m long separation cable for the display unit, optionally a 6m cable is available. Another option is the Bluetooth unit BU-2 which allows hands-free operation with a suitable BT headset. Anther option for the FTM-100DE is the FVS-2, a voice memory and avoice announcement unit for voice supported operation of the radio. With the optional HRI-200 interface the operation of the "Wires-X" mode over the internet is possible, for an extended explanation of the many functions please see the System Fusion brochure below. A wide band receiver nicely completes the capabilities of this mobile transceiver by Yaesu.

SUPER, FANTASTIC Review by Myke
I was hesitant about purchasing this rig as I already have the FTM-400 but I soon discovered this was unfounded. Installation was simple and straightforward as was programing. The lack of true dual band is not an issue for me as I can program everything into Band A Memories. The control head is nifty and light, simple to read even in bright sunlight. However it still has that age old problem of mounting the control head. The supplied unit is pretty poor but a search on E-Bay brought a Garmin Sat Nav suction unit which does the job perfectly. Also like the option of mounting the control head on the main unit. GPS lock is fast although the display is quite small but adequate. Overall really satisified. (Posted on 25/09/2015)
