Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) GREATER OPERATING EFFICIENCY
Yaesu's FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) represents a technological breakthrough in radio transceiver design! New advances in power amplifier technology combine to provide you with 50 Watts of clean transmit power with enhanced current consumption efficiency. Yaesu's patent pending aluminum die-cast shell construction dissipates heat throughout the entire transceiver chassis and eliminates the need for an external thermally switched cooling fan.
This allows the Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) to fit in an incredibly small case size: less than 5 inches square X 1.4 inches high (weighing a mere 960 grams) and offer superior operating specifications as welll 

Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) EXTENSIVE MEMORY SYSTEM
The Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) includes a total of 149 memory channels, including 130 "regular" memories, 9 pairs of subband-limit memories, and an instant-recall "Home" channel you can program with frequently-used repeater information. Al I memory channels will store CTCSS enc/dec, user selected power output level, scanning status ("Skip" or "Stop"), and user programmed Alpha- Numeric titles. 

Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) SMART SEARCH
The Smart Search feature may be used to automatically program a special bank of up to 31 memory channels, based on radio activity. Smart Search will sweep either the entire band or the portion of the band within the programmable band-scan limits, and will load frequencies on which activity is found. Smart Search is very helpful when visiting an area for the first time, allowing you to identify and automatically program channels where the action is! 

Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) SELECTABLE POWER OUTPUT
Power output levels are user selectable in four steps: 50/25/10/5 Watts. The power selection can be stored into memory, allowing you to conserve power while operating on strong local repeaters. Current drain at full (50 W) power output is 8 Amps maximum. 

Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) CONVENIENT PROGRAMMING MENU
The Menu system includes 35 transceiver settings, alphabetically arranged, allowing the operator to "Set and Forget" many operating parameters of the Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M). The Menu may be accessed either via the top-panel's [SET] key or the microphone's [A] key or programmed with the optional ADMS-2F software kit.

Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) MH-48B6J DTMF DIRECT ACCESS MICROPHONE
The backlit MH-48B6J Microphone allows direct keypad frequency entry and memory channel recall. With the PTT button keyed the MH-48B6J allows manual entry of DTMF tones for autopatch use. The Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) also includes an 8-memory, 16-digit DTMF autodialer. Four user-programmable keys on the microphone may be configured for easy control of user selectable operating functions.
Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) BETTER RECEIVE PERFORMANCE
The Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M)'s receiver section is as tough as its construction. It features Yaesu's renowned RF ATT (Advanced Track Tuning), that allows for outstanding spurious image rejection. The automatic tracking bandpass filter used in the ATT system protects the RF receiver section from strong out-of- band signals that can result in intermodulation and adjacent band interference in lower quality transceivers! The Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M)'s wide band receiver covers 137 to 174 MHz. The Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) can monitor Amateur, Public Safety, and Weather Band stations with ease, keeping you in touch with all the action in your community! 

Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) EASY DATA INTERFACING
For packet operation at either 1200 bpsor 9600 bps, The Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) is conveniently equipped with a DB-9 data jack located on the rear chassis for neat and organized data interfacing.
The DATA jack provides connection points for transmit data, receiver audio, PTT, and ground. Signal levels, bandwidths, and impedance levels are all optimized for the user selected data rate for maximum throughput. 

Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) 50-TONE CTCSS ENCODE AND DECODE BUILT IN
For easy repeater access or silent monitoring of busy channels, CTCSS Encoder and Decoder circuits are built into the Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M). CTCSS data may be stored independently in each memory channel. The Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) includes a CTCSS "Tone Search Scan" feature which lets you search for the CTCSS tone on an incoming signal. 

Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) ALPHA NUMERIC CHANNEL DISPLAY
Memory channels may be displayed either with the channel frequency or a personalized Alpha-Numeric title for easy channel recognition. Up to six letters, numbers, or characters are conveniently programmed from the Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) control panel or optional ADMS-2F PC software. 

Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) WIDE / NARROW DEVIATION SELECTION
For operation in areas where 12.5 kHz Channel, separation is used, the Yaesu FT-1500M (FT1500M, FT 1500M) transmitter deviation may by set to a "Narrow Deviation" mode which will set it at ±2.5 kHz.
