FT 1802 M
Watts of Power Output
The FT-1802M provides a hefty 50 Watts of power otput,
with "low power" settings of 25, 10, and
5 Watts, for situations where full power is not required.
Extended Receiver Coverage
The FT-1802M provides receiver coverage of 136-174
MHz, so you can listen in on a wide variety of commercial,
military, public safety, and marine communications.
Illuminated Microphone with Keyboard Frequency Entry
The supplied MH-48a6j DTMF Microphone is illuminated
for eas of nighttime use, and you may enter operating
frequencies directly from the keypad. What's more,
memory channels may also be recalled directly via
221 Memory channels with Alpha-numeric Labeling
The FT-1802M's extensive memory system includes 200
regular memories, ten pairs of band-limit memories,
and a one-touch "Home" channel. Memory channels
store repeater offset information, as well as CTCSS
or DCS data, and can have a six-character label appended,
for quick channel recognition. And the memories may
be allocated into as many as eight memory banks, for
more efficient scanning.
Dedicated 10-channel NOAA Weather Broadcast Channel
Bank (U.S. version)
Included in the FT-1802M is a dedicated, quick-access
memory bank that contains the ten standard NOAA Weather
Information Channels, so you can keep track of weather
conditions expected for your area.
Programmable "Soft" Keys
Four user-programmable "soft" keys are provided
on the MH-48a6j microphone, allowing you to bring
often-used Menu items, or front panel key functions,
to your fingertips.
Built-in CTCSS and DCS Encoder/Decoder Circuits
The FT-1802M includes both CTCSS and DCS Encoder/Decoder
circuitry, with Reverse CTCSS Decoding also available,
to mute your receiver when a particular tone is received
(instead of opening your squelch). And you can encode
CTCSS and decode DCS, or vice versa, too, if your
application requires it.
Adjustable Mic Gain and Wide/Narrow Deviation and
The microphone gain for the FT-1802M's transmitter
is adjustable, so you can optimize it for your voice
level as well as background noise in your operating
location. And for operation in crowded channel environments,
the TX deviation and RX bandwidth may both be reduced
via the Menu.
Automatic Repeater Shift (ARS), Automatic Power-Off
(APO), and BCLO (Busy Channel Lock-Out)
ARS: Automatically selects the typical repeater shift
used in your country, based on the current operating
frequency. APO: Automatically turns power off after
a user-defined time period, to prevent you from running
down your car battery if you forget to turn your rig
off. BCLO: Prevents you from transmitting on an occupied
frequency (especially valuable during Tone Squelch
or DCS operation).
You can practice your Morse Code recognition, using
this novel trainer that sends you five-character code
groups, with variable speed and instant feedback as
to the correct characters sent to you.
Security Password to Prevent Unauthorized Use
A defeatable (by the owner) Security Password system
is provided for the FT-1802M, so you can limit operational
access to yourself and any other users (if any) informed
of the password for the transceiver.
