Mobile VHF Transceiver

FT-1802M: US model
FT-1802E: European model

50 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 the keypad.

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 RX Bandwidth
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).

CW Trainer
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.

Easy Access to YAESU's Renowned WiRES-II™ Internet Linking Nodes
A front panel key provides instant access to WiRES-II nodes. More information about WiRES, Yaesu's exciting and fun way to communicate via Amateur Radio AND the Internet, may be found at the WiRES-II Web site: www.vxstd.com/en/wiresinfo-en

The Yaesu FT-1802 has been replaced with the FT-1900.
