The Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) provides a total of 221 memory
channels, including 200 "regular" memories, ten pairs of band-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"), and Alpha- Numeric labels.

Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) ALPHA-NUMERIC CHANNEL DISPLAY
Memory channels may be displayed either with the channel frequency or a personalized Alpha-Numeric label,
for easy channel recognition. Up to six letters, characters, or numbers may be used for labeling channels.

Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) CTCSS AND DCS ENCODE/DECODE 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 independently in
each memory channel.
A "Split Tone" mode also allows operation on systems where CTCSS and DCS are used separately on the
repeater uplink/downlink.

Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) VERSATILE SCANNING CAPABILITY
The Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M)’s high-speed scanning features include a choice of scanningresume
options ("carrier drop," "time delay," or "halt"), with scanning provided on the memories, the VFO, or within a
limited VFO sub-band established by one of the ten pairs of sub-band memories. You may designate certain
constantcarrier memories to be "skipped" during scanning, and you also may create a "preferential scan list"
to allow scanning only of selected memories within the main 200-channel memory bank.

 Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) WX CHANNELS WITH "SEVERE WEATHER" ALERT
A special 10-channel Weather Band memory bank is provided in the U.S.version, allowing quick access to
NOAAweather broadcasts. When the 1050-Hz "Severe Weather" alert tone is transmitted, the
Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) may be configured to
emit an alarm tone to get your attention quickly. With the "Weather Alert" feature enabled, the
Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) will scan the ten Weather memories, stopping only if the
1050-Hz tone is received.

Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) SMART SEARCH™
The Smart Search™ feature may be used to load - automatically with no operator intervention - a special bank of up
to 31 memories, based on activity. Smart Search™ will sweep the band, automatically loading frequencies
on which activity is found, making it ideal when visiting a city for the first time.

Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) WIRES™ INTERNET LINKING ACCESS FEATURE
The Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) includes a convenientlylocated "Internet" key, for quick
access to Internet-linked repeater systems. Internet repeater linking allows you to use your
Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) to talk to other Amateurs throughout the world, with outstanding voice signal
quality. The "Internet" key may be configured to send either a single DTMF digit, or a DTMF string, for operation
on a WIRES™ (Wide- Coverage Internet Repeater Enhancement System) repeater, or on other Internetlinked
repeaters using DTMF tone access. For more information on WIRES™, please visit our Web site (www.vxstd.com).

 
Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) MH-48A6J DTMF DIRECT ACCESS MICROPHONE
The backlit MH-48A6J microphone allows direct keypad frequency entry, or keypad memory channel recall.
On transmit, the MH-48A6J allows manual entry of DTMF tones for autopatch use, and the
Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) also includes a ninememory, 16-digit DTMF Autodialer.
Four user-programmable "soft" keys on the microphone may be programmed for easy control of a number
of different features, and the [A]/[B]/[C]/[D] keys replicate the functions of the keys on the front panel
of the transceiver, for maximum convenience while driving.

Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) EXCELLENT RECEIVER PERFORMANCE
The Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M)’s receiver front end features Yaesu’s renowned Advanced
Track Tuning RF input filtering, which affords outstanding protection from Intermodulation distortion.

Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) WIDE/NARROW DEVIATION SELECTION
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.

Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) RF-LEVEL SQUELCH
The Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) may be configured to keep the receiver squelched until the
incoming signal exceeds a user-defined signal strength. When weak signals cause the squelch to open
frequently, but if you don’t want to use CTCSS or DCS control, the RF Squelch feature will keep your receiver
quiet until a louder signal calls.

Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M) INTERACTIVE PROGRAMMING MENU
The Menu system provides access to 34 configuring settings for your Yaesu FT-2800M (FT2800M, FT 2800M),
