The ruggedly built Yaesu FT-1802M brings you Yaesu's legendary mechanical toughness in a low-cost, high-performance, 2-meter FM transceiver. The FT-1802M is somewhat smaller than the FT-7800R dual bander and features outstanding audio on both transmit and receive. It has strong receiver performance, covering 136 to 174 MHz. It has illuminated front panel keys and boasts 221 memories. There is also a 10 channel NOAA weather bank. You get CTCSS and DCS Encoder and Decoder circuits. The FT-1802M even has a unique a CW trainer to practice Morse Code. Keyboard entry of frequencies directly from microphone is supported. It also supports one-touch access to Yaesu's renowned WiRES-II Internet Linking System. There is a security password to help prevent unauthorized use. The FT-1802M has a rugged die-cast chassis and the rear panel has an external speaker jack. 5.6 x 1.6 x 5.8 inches. The supplied MH-48A6J DTMF hand mic includes four programmable keys. Also comes with the MMB-36 mounting bracket, DC cord and spare fuses. (The FT-1802M does not include base feet).
50 WATTS OF POWER OUTPUT
Four selectable power output levels are provided: 50/25/10/5 Watts. The power selection may be stored into memory, allowing you to conserve power while using strong local repeaters.
EXTENDED RECEIVE: 136 – 174 MHz
Providing coverage of the 2-meter Amateur band, plus a number of business, marine, government, and military frequencies, the FT-1802M/E’s wide receiver coverage keeps you in touch with the communications action in your area!
KEYBOARD FREQUENCY ENTRY FROM MICROPHONE
Direct entry of operating frequencies from the supplied MH-48A6J Microphone provides the ultimate in operating ease. The microphone may also be used for direct memory channel access, and for generation of DTMF tones for autopatch or Internet link access. And the [A]/[B]/[C]/[D] keys may be used to replicate the functions of the front panel keys, as well.
FOUR USER-PROGRAMMABLE "SOFT" KEYS ON MICROPHONE
The [P1]/[P2]/[P3]/[P4] keys on the microphone may be programmed by the user for easy remote access to often-used commands or Menu items.
ILLUMINATED FRONT PANEL KEYS FOR NIGHTTIME USE
The translucent command keys, and large, high-resolution LCD display, yield a front panel that is easy to use day and night. What’s more, the microphone’s keys also are illuminated, eliminating guesswork during nighttime operation.
221 MEMORY CHANNELS WITH ALPHA-NUMERIC LABELING
The FT-1802M provides a total of 221 memory channels, including 200 "regular" memories, ten pairs of band-limit memories, and an instant recall "Home" channel that you may dedicate to a frequently-used repeater or simplex frequency. Memories can store repeater shift information, CTCSS/DCS data, power output level, scanning status ("Skip"), and 6-character Alpha-Numeric Labels.
EIGHT MEMORY BANKS FOR ORGANIZING MEMORY CHANNELS
The FT-1802M’s memories may be separated into as many as eight memory banks, for efficient organizing and scanning of your radio’s memory channels. Each memory bank may be labeled, and a particular channel may be stored in multiple banks, if desired.
WX CHANNELS WITH "SEVERE WEATHER" ALERT (USA only)
A special 10-channel Weather Band memory bank is provided in the U.S. version, allowing quick access to NOAA weather broadcasts. When the 1050-Hz "Severe Weather" alert tone is transmitted, the FT-1802M may be configured to emit an alarm tone to get your attention quickly. And with the "Weather Alert" feature enabled, the FT-1802M
will scan the ten Weather memories periodically, stopping only if the 1050-Hz tone is received.
ADJUSTABLE MIC GAIN, AND WIDE/NARROW DEVIATION & RX BANDWIDTH
For operation in crowded channel environments (12.5/15 kHz channel spacing), the "Narrow" deviation setting will reduce the transmitter deviation, thus reducing interference potential to other users. And the microphone gain is adjustable allowing you to interface after-market microphones or Packet TNCs with ease.
BUILT-IN CTCSS AND DCS ENCODER/ DECODER CIRCUITS
For easy repeater access, or silent monitoring of busy channels, both CTCSS and DCS (Digital Code Squelch) Encoder/Decoder circuits are built in. CTCSS and DCS data may be independently stored on each memory channel. And a "Split" tone mode allows operation on systems where CTCSS and DCS are used separately on the repeater uplink/downlink.
ENHANCED PAGING AND CODE SQUELCH SYSTEM (EPCS)
The FT-1802M includes an Enhanced CTCSS tone encoder/decoder and a dedicated microprocessor providing paging and selective calling features. This allows you to place a call to a specific station (Paging), and to receive calls of your choice directed only to you (Code Squelch). A Bell Alarm may also be engaged during EPCS operating, if desired.
CW TRAINER: PRACTICE MORSE CODE BETWEEN QSOs!
The FT-1802M provides a CW Training feature, which sends random Morse Code via the side tone (heard in the speaker), so you can improve your CW proficiency. You may select letters, numbers, or mixed five-character code groups, with variable speed and instant feedback of correct copy on the FT-1802M/E’s display!
SECURITY PASSWORD HELPS PREVENT UNAUTHORIZED USE
The FT-1802M provides a password feature which can minimize the chance that your transceiver could be used by an unauthorized party. When the password feature is activated, the radio will ask for the four-digit password to be entered
when the radio is first turned on. If the wrong password is entered, the microprocessor will shut down the radio automatically.
ONE-TOUCH ACCESS TO WiRES-II“ VoIP INTERNET LINKING!
The FT-1802M includes a conveniently-located "Internet" key, for quick access to Internet-linked repeater systems such as the renowned WiRES-II™ system developed by Vertex Standard! For more information on WiRES-II, please visit our Web site (www.vxstd.com).
