We are pleased to introduce FT5DR, 5W C4FM/FM 144/430MHz Dual Band Digital Transceiver.
The new FT5DR is a full-featured C4FM handheld transceiver with superior operability and new sophisticated functions.
Even in a compact body (W2.44” x D1.34” x H3.94”), the FT5DR provides reliable 5W RF power output and achieves loud 1W audio power that has been tuned for quality audio. Real Dual Band Operations (V+V, U+U, V+U, U+V) are available with two independent receivers. Large individual LED indicators for A band and B band present the status and communication modes (C4FM or Analog) of each band instantly. The new FT5DR supports simultaneous C4FM digital (C4FM/C4FM standby).
With rubber protection on the corner of the main body, the FT5DR has rugged and shock-resistant construction. The waterproof rating is IPX7. The comfortable size and form of the full-flat back body provides excellent grasp for the radio operator.
A high-resolution display highlights the frequency of the operational band. The color of the operating band frequency can be selected from white, blue or red. Three (3) touch panel keys and seven (7) operation keys below the display offer intuitive operability.
The new TOUCH & GO operation is convenient in order to immediately start the communications on an often-used frequency. By pressing and holding the “PMG” key, the frequency of the current display is registered into Primary Memory Group. After registration, pressing the “PMG” key will display the receive status of the registered frequencies as bars on a graph (activity monitor). By simply touching the displayed bar, the user can instantly recall that frequency. (TOUCH & GO Operation)
Band Scope function monitors in real time, up to 79 displayed channels that are centered around the current VFO frequency. The center frequency can be tuned by the dial knob or by touching and moving the frequency of a displayed channel bar.
The C4FM digital communication features which are already popular in the market, such as: Automatic Mode Select (AMS), Digital Group ID (DG-ID) operation, and Smart Navigation function are available with the new FT5DR.
The FT5DR supports the WiRES-X Portable Digital Node Function as well. A portable digital node can be easily set up with the new FT5DR, an internet connected laptop PC, and the optional SCU-39 cable kit
Plus advanced features of the new FT5DR are: Wireless hands-free operation using the optional Bluetooth® headset (SSM-BT10); VOX function; Memory Auto Grouping (MAG); VFO Band Skip Function; Wide-range RX coverage with continuous reception from 0.5MHz–999.99MHz (A Band)* & 108MHz–580MHz (B Band)*; Built-in high-sensitivity 66 channel GPS receiver; 1200/9600bps APRS Data modem; 2,200mAh High-Capacity Li-ion Battery Pack (SBR-14LI) as standard; Voice Recording Function; Simultaneous AM/FM broadcast Reception while monitoring two frequency channels; Micro SD Card Slot.
New Quick Release Holster (SHB-26) is included in the FT5DR package as a supplied accessory that allows single-touch attaching and detaching the transceiver while wearing the holster on a belt.
* Guaranteed within 144/430 MHz amateur bands only.

When I press the talk button (PTT) my radio’s display will shut off and restart. Why does this happen? The radio will shut down to protect itself. This will happen when the radio is unable to get sufficient “energy” from the power source. 1. Make sure your battery is fully charged. 2. Most batteries even when well cared for may still need to be replaced after a few years. 3. If you have a voltmeter, you can check your battery for DC voltage. If you read 6 volts or below, the battery may have to be replaced. The closer to 0 volts, the worse the condition of your battery. Can I leave my radio on the charger constantly? We recommend only leaving the radio in the charger for the amount of time it takes to fully charge the battery. Leaving the radio on charge for a few extra hours will not have an impact. However, leaving the battery to charge for more than a few days at a time can contribute to premature wear on your battery. How do I store my radio to help protect my battery life? If you will be storing your radio for extended periods of time, it is recommended to remove the battery from the radio. Leaving the battery attached to the radio will allow the radio to drain the battery slowly over time. Over a long enough period of time this can cause the battery to reach a state of discharge that it cannot recover from. When I boot up the WIRES-X software I see an error “not found audio device”. Why does this happen and how do I fix it? The WIRES-X software is not getting the "ok" from your computer that something is connected to your computers mic jack. Typically you can connect any earpiece to your mic input jack and this should resolve the issue. If your computer has a single jack for both mic and speaker audio, then you may have to use a USB sound card that provides the two jacks. These can typically be purchased online for less than $10. In PDN mode I get the error “Call cancelled in PDN mode” when I try to connect to “Room Name” in PDN mode. Some rooms are set up to what we call a “multi-mode” room. This means the room will accept both digital and analog node connections. In PDN (Personal Digital Node) mode you can only connect to the rooms that have been set up as “Digital-Only”. This means in PDN mode you can only connect to those rooms who only accept digital nodes. Mixed mode rooms (example: AMERICA_LINK) is multi-mode, it will not accept a PDN connection. Why does the WIRES-X button not work with my hotpsot? Or why can I not save Wires X rooms in my radios categories area with my hotpsot? Off brand hotpsots do not use the true fusion protocol. Hotpsots do not connect you to the WIRES-X network, they connect to what are known as YSF or FCS reflectors which are not part of the WIRES-X network. How much range can I expect from my radio? Transmit range can vary widely with the same radio. Using the stock antenna at ground level you may only get a mile or two of transmit range. The same radio (more specifically the antenna) up at elevation can transmit much further as the signal is not obstructed or reflected by buildings, trees, hills, etc.
