High Powered VHF FM Transceiver

The Yaesu FT-3000M (FT300M, FT 3000M) delivers more output power, when you need it!

The Yaesu FT-3000M (FT300M, FT 3000M) is the ONLY amateur 2-m FM mobile radio with 70 full watts of power, EXCLUSIVE features like this, and INDUSTRY-FIRST such as an Intensive Programming System, Digital Coded Squelch and Smart Search™ Memory Storage System distinguish Yaesu as a world leader in amateur radio products.

Highlights of this rugged MIL-STD 810 rated mobile include VHF/UHF Wide Band Receive — from 110 MHz to 999 MHz (Cellular Blocked), twin cooling fans — important for long hours of in-car operation; a dual-concentric Quick-Touch™ knob - for finger-tip control adjustments and access to menu programming; Auto Range Transpond System™ (ARTS™) — uses DCS to automatically track other ARTS™ - equipped units up tp 40 miles (depending on terrain); true FM — for enhanced voice clarity; large, alphanumeric LCD display with Omni-Glow™ - for easiest viewing possible; and it’s PC programmable with ADMS™ Windows™ PC programming Software. Plus, it is perfect as a compact base station!

Built to Tough Military Standard
To gain its MIL-STD 810 rating for tough, enduring performance, the Yaesu FT-3000M (FT300M, FT 3000M) conforms to rigid commercial grade radio standards. This enables it to withstand the rigors of shock, vibration, and the corrosive action of dust and moisture. No other mobile can stand up to the quality-built challenge of the rugged Yaesu FT-3000M (FT300M, FT 3000M).

Selectable Power Output
For selectable power output levels, 70, 50, 25 and 10 Watts let you conserve power and eliminate interference. Choose the right level for your particular need.

Alphanumeric Display
Over 60 numbers, letters and other characters are available to personalize each memory channel. Use up to five characters for each selected memory channel.

Digital Coded Squelch (DCS)
Widely used in the commercial land-mobile industry, DCS provides 104 unique codes in addtion to the standard CTCSS tones.

Wide Band Receive
Receiver coverage includes 110 — 180 MHz (VHF), 300 — 520 MHz (UHF) and 800 — 999 MHz (Cellular Blocked). AM receive activates automatically from 110 — 137 MHz for aircraft tuning and scanning.

Special Receive Feature
A second sub-receiver permits extra operating possibilities, Choose split, and full-duplex cross-band operation, or monoband UHF. Select twin VHF or UHF channels, then toggle operation between them. Use Dual Watch to sample the sub-receive frequency, then swap channels when a signal is detected.

Programming Memory Scanning & Tuning
Set upper and lower frequency limits of your choice to make scanning of hard to find frequencies easier. Set up to 5 pair of memory channels.

Spectrum Scope
View activity above or blow the operating channel in VFO mode, or activity among six programmed memories in the Memory Recall mode. Watch the unique, left-side bargraph sweep upward including activity.

Memory Channels
The Yaesu FT-3000M (FT300M, FT 3000M) has a total of 81 memories. Included are 70 regular memory channels which can be divided in up to seven banks, and 10 (five pairs) additional channels devoted to programmable memory scanning and tuning. One final instant-recall memory, "Home Channel", is dedicated for quick access to commonly used frequencies such as a simplex calling channel or club repeater. Memory programming function includes Split Memory Operation, Memory Masking and Memory Guard which protects against overwriting of stored memories.

Auto Range Transpond System™ (ARTS™)
The Auto Range Transpond System™ uses DCS to allow two radios to automatically track one another every 15 seconds. A handy feature for outdoor activities such as camping and hiking, the ARTS™ feature can be used with other Yaesu ARTS™/DCS-equipped transceivers.

MH-36A6J DTMF Direct Access Microphone
DTMF keypad permits direct frequency entry and programming via keypad sequence combination. Backlit, too.

Interactive Programming System
Programming menu holds over 50 transceiver operational setting, including quick access to "set and forget" settings. Continual scrolling menu guide provides easy-to-follow programming instructions. Two user-programmable soft keys make complex function as simple as pushing a button.

ADMS-2™ Windows™ PC programming Software
Simply "point and click" to automatically program the FT-3000M with ADMS-2 Windows™ PC Programming Software. Handy kit includes 3.5 disk and programming cable. Use to create memory files for frequently used repeaters, and for other cities. Also, use for cloning memory to another compatible Yaesu Radios!

Smart Search™
This remarkable feature memorizes active channels found while scanning, and sorts them according to either signal strength or frequency. It then automatically writes them into twenty reserved memory channels for instant playback.

Twin Cooling Fans
The installation of mobile radio is often in the hottest location in a vehicle. To keep the Yaesu FT-3000M (FT300M, FT 3000M) running cool, unique twin fans provide optimum cooling during long transmission keydown times — another Yaesu exclusive.

1200/9600 Baud Compatible
Rear panel data jack for packet! Choose 1200 or 9600 baud rate.

Dual-concentric Quick-Touch™ knob for finger-tip-control adjustments and menu programming.
