Yaesu FTM 6000R Initial Walk-Through, Part 2

Yaesu FTM 6000R

Taken from the livestream with John Kruk about this new radio, I cut down to all of the important parts about the radio for this quick-look at all of its features.

The  new  FTM-6000R  is  a  basic  feature  packed  mobile  transceiver  employing  a  new  User  Operating  Interface  –  E2O-III (Easy  to  Operate  –  III). The  FTM-6000R  delivers  reliable  and  stable  50W  transmit  performance.  – The  heavy-duty  heat  sink  is  equipped  with FACC (Funnel  Air-Convection  Conductor).    

 – The  speaker  delivers  3W  of  clear  and  crisp  receive  audio  which  has been  specifically  tuned  for  radio  communication.   

  – The  front  panel  of  the  FTM-6000R  is  detachable  and  can  be mounted at  the  most  desirable  operating  position.  

 – The  new  FTM-6000R  supports  optional  Bluetooth®  wireless operation  using  the  SSM-BT10*  Headset  or  a  commercially  available  Bluetooth® headset*.  

– E2O-III  provides  three  (3)  user-intuitive  operating  modes  to  assign  functions  and  settings:  (1)  The  most  frequently used  function  can  be  registered  to  the  “F1” key  and  then  recalled  with  a  single  touch  of  the  “F1” key.   

(2)  Other frequently  used  functions  can  be  assigned  to  a  Function  List  and  then  recalled  by  simply  pressing  the  “F  Menu” key and  rotating  the  dial.  (3)  All  functions  and  items  other  than  those  registered  to  “Most  frequently”  or  “Other frequently’, are  selectable  by  pressing  and  holding  the  “F  Menu”  key  and  rotating  the  dial Up  to  5  channels  can  be  registered  in  PMG  (Primary  Memory  Group).  Frequently  used  PMG  frequencies  can  be shown  in  an  easy-to-  distinguish  display  just  by  pressing  the  “PMG”  key. 

 – The  MAG  (Memory  Auto  Grouping)  function  automatically  groups  memory  channels  so  they  may  be  easily  recalled by  band:  All  memory  channels;  AIR  band  (108MHz  –  137MHz);  VHF  band  (137MHz  –  174MHz);  UHF  band  (400MHz –480MHz);  and  other bands  (174MHz  –  400MHz  /  480MHz  –  999.995MHz). 

 – The  new  FTM-6000R  VFO  Band  Skip  Function  permits  unused  bands  to  be  skipped,  while  the  registered  memory channels  can  be  recalled;  even  if  the  frequency  is  in  the  skipped  band.   

– By  pressing  “SQL  BACK”  key  when  the memory  channel  is  displayed,  the  contents  of  the  currently  selected  memory  channel  can  be  transferred  into  the  VFO register.  Depending  on  the  operating  situation,  either  the  VFO  or  Memory  channel  operations  are  separately  useable.  

 – Some  of  the  other features  of the  FTM-6000R  are: Wide-range  receive  coverage  from  108MHz  to  999.995MHz; 1100  Memory  channels  with  alphanumeric  tags;  supplied  DTMF  microphone  –  SSM-85D;  Scanning  Functions  –  VFO Scan,  Memory  Scan,  PMG  Scan,  Programmable  Memory  Scan.
