Built to the exacting requirements of both the commercial radio industry as well as the U.S. military's MIL-STD 810, the Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) is constructed using and aluminium diecast chassis/heatsink assembly, providing outstanding mechanical and thermal stability for the internal components. With super receive sensitivity you can pull weak signals out of the noise. On transmit the 60 Watts of true FM power output provides you with excellent coverage, and enhanced voice clarity. Yaesu's popular Omni-GlowTM display is easy to read from all viewing angles. 



Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) SELECTABLE POWER OUTPUT
Four selectable power output levels are provided: 60/25/10/5 Watts. The power selection can be stored into memory, allowing you to conserve power while using strong local repeaters.

Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) EXTENSIVE MEMORY SYSTEM
The Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) includes a total of 175 memory channels, including 170 "regular' memories, two pairs of subband-limit memories, and an instant-recall "Home" channel you can dedicate to a frequently-used repeater or simplex frequency. Memories can store repeater shift information, CTCSS/DCS data, power output level, scanning status ("Skip" or "Stop"), and Alpha-Numeric labels. 
Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) ALPHA-NUMERIC CHANNEL DISPLAY
Memory channels may be displayed either with the channel frequency or a personalised Alpha-Numeric label, for easy channel recognition. Up to eight letters, characters, or numbers may be used for labeling channels.

Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) CTCSS and DCS ENCODER / DECODER BUILT IN
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 configuration data may be stored independantly in each memory channel. 
Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) VERSATILE SCANNING CAPABILITY
The Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M)'s high-speed scanning function includes a choice of scanning resume options ("carrier drop" or "time delay"), with scanning provided on the memories, the VFO, or a limited VFO sub-band established by one of the 'Programmable Memory Scan" memories (I L/I U and 2L/2U). You can program certain continuous-carrier memories (e.g. weather broadcasts) to be skipped during scanning, for maximum efficiency. 
Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) Easy Packet Radio Interfacing
For packet operation at either 1200 bps or 9600 bps, the rear panel's DATA jack provides connection points for transmit data, receiver audio, PTT, and ground. Signal levels, bandwidths, and impedances are all optimised for the data rate selected.

Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) ADMS-2E Windows™ PC Programming Software
Memory channel programming is a breeze with the optional ADMS-2E Windows™ PC Programming Software. The handy kit includes a 3½"diskette and a programming interface cable. Use your computer to create frequency files or each city you visit, or for cloning groups of transceivers for public-service events! 

Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) SMART SEARCH
The Smart Search™ feature may be used to load - automatically with no operator intervention - a special bank of up to 50 memory channels based on activity. Smart Search™ Will sweep either the entire band or the portion of the band within the Programmable Band-Scan Limits, and will load the special memory bank with frequencies on which activity is found. Smart Search™ is very helpful when visiting a city for the first time, allowing you to be ready for operation on channels where the action is! 
Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) AUTO RANGE TRANSPONDER SYSTEM™ (ARTS™)
The Auto-Range Transponder System uses DCS to allow two radios to track each other every 30 seconds. Especially helpful during Search-and-Rescue operations, ARTS™ allows a base Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) to advise field hand-held units when they have moved out of communications range, thus notifying the field operator to move to a better location.

Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) EXCELLENT RECEIVER PERFORMANCE
The Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M)'s receiver front end features Yaesu's renowned Advanced Track Tuning input filtering, which affords outstanding protection from intermodulation distortion. 
Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) MH-36B6J DTMF Direct Access Microphone
The backlit MH-36B6J allows direct keypad operating frequency entry, or keypad memory channel recall. On transmit, the MH-36B6J allows manual entry of DTMF tones for autopatch use,and the Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) also includes an 8-memory, 16-digit DTMF Autodialer. Three user-programmable keys on the microphone may be configured for easy control of Repeater Shift, Squelch-Override Tone/DCS, Tone Search, or European Tone Burst. 
Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) INTERACTIVE PROGRAMMING MENU
The Menu system includes 33 transceiver settings, allowing the operator to "Set and Forget" many operating configurations. 
Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) SUPPLY VOLTAGE DISPLAY
When you turn on the radio, the current DC supply voltage will be indicated on the display for one second. After this interval, the display will resume its normal indication of the operating frequency. 
Yaesu FT-2600M (FT2600M, FT 2600M) AND SO MUCH MORE...
Additional features include: *Transmit Time-Out-Timer(TOT)  *Automatic Power-Off(APO)  *Automatic Repeater Shift  *Front-mounted Speaker OS-Meter RF Squelch  *Wide/Narrow Bandwidth setting, for reduction of TX deviation and RX bandwidth in areas of channel congestion.
