New Digital Modes
« on: July 18, 2013, 10:00:57 PM »
I've been trying to gather more information on the new digital mode (C4FM) available on the Yaesu FT1DR and the upcoming FTM-400DR.  Taking a look at their brochure it appears that this isn't compatible with P25 used for the public service sector.  The spec sheet for the FT1DR handhelds explain how they implemented this new mode but quite a few folks are voicing their dis-satisfaction about their decision here.

Any thoughts?

Well, the FTM-400DR is now available for purchase but the early reviews are not very good -- what a shame.  I really wanted to purchase one.
