The Yaesu FT-2200 is a compact, full-featured radio
providing selectable power output of 5, 25 or 50-Watts, and
includes many convenient operating functions.
Forty nine tunable memories offer flexible programming and
scanning functions, such as odd- split Tx/Rx frequencies,
programmable repeater offset and scan limits, selectable
scan resume modes and memory skip, priority channel
monitoring and instant-recall CALL channel. Channel steps
are user-selectable from 5 to 50 kHz, and ARS (Automatic
Repeater Shift) can be activated to automatically set
standard repeater shifts when tuning to repeater subbands.
Backlighting for the large LCD (display), knobs and major
buttons is controlled using a photo-sensor to automatically
adjust to ambient light conditions.
A 38-tone programmable CTCSS encoder is built-in, and the
FTS-27 CTCSS decoder unit can be installed to provide
squelched private channels and a CTCSS Bell feature to sound
an alert tone when the tone squelch opens.
DTMF (Dual-Tone, Multi-Frequency)-based selective calling
and private paging lets you select any of 999 3-digit ID
codes for your transceiver and then have your receiver stay
quiet until your code is received (from any standard DTMF-
equipped transceiver). When a call is received, the FT-2200
displays the caller’s code, and a paging beeper can be set
to sound. With the Auto- Page/Forward features, your FT-2200
can respond automatically by acknowledging or relaying a
page call received when you are not present. Seven DTMF code
memories store your ID plus those of six other
frequently-called stations or groups you wish to monitor. In
addition, 10 DTMF Autodial memories store up to 15 digits
each for quick playback of commonly used numbers.
The optional DVS-3 permits digital voice recording and
playback in the FT-2200. For remote operation, the optional
MW-2 Wireless remote- control unit duplicates most
front-panel controls (including volume and squelch), adding
a DTMF keypad and microphone. A tiny panel plugs into the
microphone jack of the radio to receive commands from the
unit. The microphone jack also includes signal for CAT
System control from an external personal computer.
