FTM-300DR PDN Mode

What is WIRES-X Portable Digital Node Function?

FTM-300DR PDN Mode. Using the WIRES-X Portable Digital Node function, you can operate a WIRES-X digital node station by directly connecting a compatible C4FM digital transceiver with a PC. The HRI-200 Internet interface kit is not needed and no fixed or dynamic global IP address is required.)

There are two operating modes of the WIRES-X Portable Digital Node function:

Portable Digital Node Mode capable of Internet communication with digital stations.

Portable HRI Mode capable of Internet communication with both digital and analog stations.

Portable Digital Node Mode (Supports Internet communication only in C4FM Digital Mode)

Requires a Yaesu C4FM Portable Digital Node capable transceiver, USB Connection Cable and a PC with WIRES-X Software and Internet connection.

Two forms of WIRES-X Access are supported, “Access Point” and “Direct Operation”.

In “Access Point the Portable Node station can be used to communicate “On Air and relay nearby local C4FM digital transceivers, while simultaneously connected with the Internet WIRES-X digital rooms and digital node stations.

In “Direct Operation, the Portable Node station transceiver is used only for WIRES-X Internet communications without transmitting or receiving local “On Air” radio signals.

The difference between PDN and portable HRI mode

PDN links a radio to the PC then you talk into that radio

Portable HRI mode you connect a radio to the PC then use a second radio to talk

FTM-300DR PDN Mode

Access Point

In this mode, WIRES-X C4FM communications are made by either directly using the USB connected Portable Digital Node Station transceiver PTT, microphone, and speaker, or via another local C4FM transceiver communicating on frequency with the USB connected Portable Digital Node Station transceiver.

The Portable Digital Node Station transceiver connects directly to the PC and the Internet, and then communicates with WIRES-X Nodes and Rooms. The Portable Digital Node Station transceiver relays the local C4FM stations and signals to the Internet and transmits the Internet Node and Room signals to the local stations.

This mode allows the flexibility to operate the Portable Digital Node directly from a single USB connected Portable Digital Node Station transceiver, or to access WIRES-X Nodes and Rooms from one or several local C4FM transceivers.

FTM-300DR PDN Mode

In this mode, WIRES-X C4FM communications are made directly by using the USB connected Portable Digital Node Station transceiver Node Station. The microphone signal is sent only to the PC and the Internet.

The Internet signals are heard only in the Portable Digital Node Station transceiver speaker. In this Direct Operation, the Portable Digital Node Station transceiver does not transmit or receive over the air.

Direct Operation (Portable Digital Node Mode) Illustration

Portable HRI Mode (Supports Internet communication in both C4FM Digital Mode and Analog Mode)

Requires a Yaesu C4FM Portable Digital Node capable transceiver, a USB Connection Cable, audio cables and a PC with WIRES-X Software and Internet connection. (The HRI-200 interface is not used).

In the Portable HRI Mode configuration, either the Access Point operation or the Direct operation may be activated:

Access Point (Portable HRI Mode)

In this mode, WIRES-X C4FM and Analog communications are made via another local C4FM transceiver communicating on frequency with the connected Portable Digital Node Station. The Portable Digital Node Station transceiver relays the local C4FM and Analog signals to the Internet and transmits the Internet Node and Room signals to the local stations. This Node mode allows the flexibility to operate the Portable Digital Node to access WIRES-X Nodes and Rooms from one or several local C4FM transceivers.

Direct Operation (Portable HRI Mode)

In this mode, you can communicate in digital mode or analog mode via the Internet. WIRES-X communications are made directly by using the USB connected Portable Digital Node Station Transceiver. The microphone signal is sent only to the PC and the Internet.

The Internet signals are heard only in the Portable Digital Node Station transceiver speaker. (When communicating in “Direct Operation” on “Portable HRI Mode” using FT2D, the Internet signals are heard only from the PC speaker.) In this Direct Operation, the Portable Digital Node Station transceiver does not transmit or receive over the air.

Direct Operation (Portable HRI Mode) Illustration

With the WIRES-X Portable Digital Node function, you cannot operate a WIRES-X Room (Including a digital room) or use the remote-control function from the outside.
