Yaesu is pleased to introduce the new FTM-200DR – 50W VHF/UHF Dual Band C4FM/ FM Mobile Transceiver.

The new FTM-200DR is a C4FM Digital multi-functional transceiver with a single receiver. The FTM-200DR delivers reliable and stable 50W transmit performance. The heavy-duty heat sink is equipped with FACC (Funnel Air[1]Convection Conductor). The speaker delivers 3W of clear and crisp receive audio which has been specifically tuned for radio communication. 2-inch Full-color display provides high visibility and highlights the frequency of the operating band with selectable color – White, Blue or Red. Front panel of the FTM-200DR is detachable and can be mounted at the most desirable operating position. The new FTM-200DR supports optional Bluetooth® wireless operation using the SSM-BT10 Headset or a commercially available Bluetooth® headset*.
