CTCSS and DCS Embedded Encoding / Decoding
CTCSS / DCS (Digital Code Squelch) encoders / decoders are embedded to easily access the repeater or silently monitor the busy channels. The CTCSS and DCS configuration data can be stored independently in each memory channel. A Split Tone mode also allows you to operate on systems where CTCSS and DCS are used separately on the uplink / downlink repeater.
Large memory system
The FT-2980R offers a total of 221 memory channels, including 200 "regular" memories, ten pairs of broadband memories, and a "instant" home channel channel that can be devoted to frequent repetition or a simplex frequency . Memories can store information on repeater switch, CTCSS / DCS data, power level, Skip (Skip) and Alpha-Numeric labels.
Alpha-Numeric Channel Display
Memory channels can be displayed with channel frequency or a custom Alpha-Numeric label for easy channel recognition. Up to six letters, characters, or numbers can be used to label the channels.
Internet Connection Network Access Features
The FT-2980R includes a conveniently located "Internet" key for quick access to Internet-connected repeater systems. The Internet Repeater connection allows you to use your FT-2980R to talk to other Amateurs around the world with exceptional voice quality. The "Internet" key can be configured to send a single DTMF digit or DTMF string for operation on a WIRES ™ repeater (Internet Wide-Coverage Repeater) or other Internet-connected repeaters using DTMF tone access.
