Factory code: XAH039N312-0E
Barcode: 4909959159851

The improved FT-2980 now with 80 Watts of High power output! No Cooling Fan Needed, a huge, easy-to-read display, and one-touch WIRES™ Internet Linking Access capability are yours with the rugged new FT-2980E!

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.

Extensive Memory System

The FT-2980E 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.

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.

Excellent Receiver Performance

The FT-2980E’s receiver front end features Yaesu’s renowned Advanced Track Tuning RF input filtering, which affords outstanding protection from Intermodulation distortion.

Large LCD Display

The large 6 digit backlit LCD on the FT-2980R ensure excellent visibility

Loud Audio with Internal Speaker

The FT-2980E packs 3W BIG watts of Loud Audio with its own Internal Speaker for those noisy environments.

Now with 80 Watts of Power Output

80 Watts of Solid RF Power with No Cooling Fan Needed! Four selectable power output levels are provided: 80/30/10/5 Watts. The power selection may be stored into memory, allowing you to conserve power while using strong local repeaters.

Frequency range: TX: 144-146 MHz, RX: 136-174 MHz
