If you're ready for the best in a Dual-Band FM Mobile Transceiver, the FT-8800R is ready for you! With easy operation,
outstanding receiver performance, and crossband repeat capability, the FT-8800R is the new standard of comparison!!
| Wide Frequency Coverage
The FT-8800R provides extended receiver coverage
beyond the Amateur bands, so you can keep informed of communication activities in the public safety, commercial, aircraft,
and government communications ranges. Independent Two-Channel Operation
The FT-8800R operates as two radios in one,
with either 144 MHz or 430 MHz as the “Main” TX/RX band, while simultaneously monitoring the other band. Each
band has its own Volume and Squelch controls. And, if you like, you can configure your FT-8800R for VHF-VHF or UHF-UHF operation,
too! High Power Output
To get your message through when it counts,
the FT-8800R puts out a full 50 Watts of power on the 144 MHz band, and 35 Watts on 430 MHz. A thermal sensor monitors heat
sink temperature, engaging the rear panel’s cooling fan only when needed. Over 1000 Memory Channels
The FT-8800R provides a wide variety of memory
resources, including 512 "regular" memories on each band, five "Home" channels for favorite frequencies, ten sets of band-edge
memories on each band, and six "Hyper Memories" that store complete sets of transceiver operating status configuration.
Large, Easy-to-Read Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)
Affording easy viewing from a wide range
of viewing angles, the LCD of the FT-8800R features Yaesu’s renowned Omni-Glow™ display illumination, with four
illumination levels available for different environments. You’ll marvel at the crystal-clear frequency display and status
indicators, whether you’re operating night or day! Cross-Band Repeat Capability
For emergency work, or to extend the range
of a hand-held unit, the FT-8800R includes Cross-Band Repeat capability, similar to that pioneered on our popular FT-8100R Dual Band FM
Mobile! One-Touch Band-Pattern
To save valuable time while operating a transceiver
with the capability of the FT-8800R, the “Hyper Memory” feature allows you to store a complete set of configuration
data for the two bands on which you’re operating. Besides the usual storage of frequency and tone data, Hyper Memory
will store such setup parameters as Automatic Repeater Shift status, Packet parameters, Scanning mode, and VFO tracking configuration.
50-Tone CTCSS/104-Tone DCS (Digital Code Squelch) Tone Systems
Providing excellent performance even under
difficult link conditions, Yaesu’s 50-tone sub-audible CTCSS and 104-tone DCS signaling systems ensure that you have
full access to repeater and remote-base inputs, and the built-in CTCSS/DCS decoders allow silent listening on busy channels.
Plus you get Tone Search Scanning, which will scan for the tone being received on an incoming signal, allowing you to match
tones quickly when operating on a new repeater system. User-Programmable Microphone Keys
Four programmable keys on the microphone
allow you one-touch access to your favorite command functions. The commands available from the microphone replicate the corresponding
front panel key functions, and include Band Change, VFO/Memory switching, Home Channel access, 1 MHz frequency steps, Power
Output selection, Repeater Reverse, and CTCSS/DCS setup. Customize your microphone for your personal operating style!
Convenient Remote-Head Mounting Capability
With the FT-8800R and its optional YSK-8900
Separation Kit, mounting your radio is a breeze even in the tightest locations. The YSK-8900 includes a 20-foot (6 m) remote
cable and mounting bracket for the front panel.
