High sound quality of C4FM and 1000mW loud volume

Although it is a compact body, it achieves a large volume of 1000mW. The sound quality has also been tuned to enable clear and comfortable communication even when used outdoors where there is a lot of noise.

FM friendly digital realized by AMS (Automatic Mode Select)

The transceiver automatically selects the communication mode according to the received signal from the other party and receives it. AMS can communicate between all members without switching the communication mode between analog FM and C4FM digital each time. Friendly digital function.

DG-ID (Digital Group ID) / Group Monitor (GM)

You can easily enjoy group communication by simply setting the same number (DG-ID number) between members from “00” to “99”. When the DG-ID number is “00”, all voices can be received.

If you use a common frequency, it will automatically check if the members set to the same DG-ID number are within the communication range, and the distance and direction information of the members will be displayed on the screen for each call sign. ..
You can check the positions of members of up to 24 stations.

Full color and comfortable navigation

    • Real-time navigation function
      The position of the partner station communicating in C4FM digital V / D mode is displayed on the compass screen in real time. This is a convenient function for meeting and merging because you can always check the positional relationship with the other party.
    • Back track function
      The distance and direction from the current location to the pre-registered point are displayed in real time. If you register the starting point, you can navigate as a backtrack function that returns from your current location to the starting point. (Up to 3 locations can be registered)

Simultaneous reception of 2 waves (V + V / U + U / V + U / U + V) / Dual LED indicator installed

Since it is equipped with two independent receiving circuits, it is possible to receive not only the same band but also different bands at the same time.

Equipped with a large independent LED indicator for A band and B band, it is possible to grasp the current reception status and communication mode for each band at a glance.

C4FM simultaneous standby support

C4FM digital standby is possible at the same time in A band and B band.

-Simultaneous playback of A-band and B-band C4FM digital audio is not possible. If a C4FM digital signal enters both bands at the same time, priority is given to reception of the operation band.

-Digital data such as call sign and location information can be received in both bands at the same time.

VFO band skip function

If you use the VFO band skip function, which allows you to skip unused bands in VFO band selection, only the frequencies of the bands you use are displayed, so you can operate smoothly. Even if the frequency of the band skipped by the VFO is used, the frequency registered in the memory channel can be recalled in the memory mode, so it is possible to operate more comfortably by using it properly.

Memory auto grouping (MAG)

The memory auto grouping (MAG) function which can automatically group and call a memory channel for each band is carried. If you press the “BAND” key during memory channel operation, ALL → AIR band → 144MHz / VHF band → 430MHz / UHF band → AM (AM radio broadcasting) → FM (FM radio broadcasting) → SW (short wave band) → OTHER The bands are switched in the order of, and the channels grouped by each band can be called. In ALL, the MAG function is turned off and the memory channels are called in order.

Yaesu FT5D79 channel band scope function

The usage status (signal strength) of up to 79 channels up and down around the current VFO frequency is displayed on the display at high speed.

The display (number of channels) can be selected from 79/39/19 channels.
You can change the center frequency by turning the dial knob, or move to that frequency by touching the scope screen.

Long life 2,200mAh large capacity lithium-ion battery pack is included as standard
