The Yaesu FT-710 is Yaesu's compact shortwave transceiver that adopts the SDR technology of the Yaesu FT-DX101 and FT-DX10. The Yaesu FT-710 FIELD provides 100W of transmit power (adjustable from 5 to 100W). The RF input stage builds on the experience of the large Yaesu FT-DX101 and FT-DX10 transceivers and uses SDR technology. A series of band filters for the amateur radio bands filter out unwanted SIgnals from outside the band. The high-resolution 250 MHz synthesiser allows simultaneous reception of multiple signals.
Operation is greatly simplified by the large 4.3" colour display; as with its larger siblings, a mouse and/or keyboard can be connected for easier control. Clearly visible LEDs to the side of the large VFO knob indicate the current operating status (VFO-A, VFO-B, memory, clarifier/split). A 'preset' function helps to set all parameters for FT-8 operation super-fast and optimally. The built-in antenna tuner adjusts not exactly tuned antennas in a flash. If an external tuner is needed, the Yaesu FT-710 offers the possibility to connect the Yaesu FC-40 tuner.
To improve the integration into the radio station, the Yaesu FT-710 offers the possibility to connect an external monitor (DVI-D). In addition to the two USB ports (1x type A, 1x type B), there is also a port for network control. An SD memory card remembers all settings, memory contents and also records QSOs at the touch of a button. Firmware updates are also carried out very conveniently and securely via the SD card.
Yaesu has purposely priced two versions of the FT-710 trasnceivers, so the FT-710 Field radio comes with special handle for carry on and field usage. While the FT-710 AESS comes with the SP-40 speaker and it's a more convenient choice for users who will not be using the radio in portable activities. FT-710 Field version is recommended for portable and field usage.
