Description

Yaesu FC-40 automatic external tuner 100W for Yaesu Yaesu FT-857, FT-897, FT-891, FT-991A, FTDX-101D radios.  The Yaesu FC-30 includes a cooling fan to ensure thermal stability of the critical matching elements within its compact case. 

The Yaesu FC-40 is a microprocessor-controlled antenna impedance matching network designed for use with the FT-950, and all versions (original and “D”) of the Yaesu FT-450, FT-857, and FT-897 HF/VHF/UHF Transceivers.

The Yaesu FC-40 makes use of control circuitry inside the transceiver, allowing the operator to monitor and control operation of the Yaesu FC-40, which mounts near the antenna feedpoint. Fully waterproof, the FC-40 may be mounted outdoors in exposed locations, and will handle a 100 Watts of transmitter power. 

The Yaesu FC-40 is designed for operation on 7 ~ 54 MHz, when using an 8’ whip like the YAESU YA-007, or on 1.8 ~ 54 MHz when used with a random-length wire longer than 66’. Matching time is typically five seconds or less, and the required drive power is 4 ~ 60 Watts.

The Yaesu FC-40 sports a whopping 200 match-setting-point memories, for instant recall of the tuning settings.

Two Way Radio over Internet

PoC (Push-to-Talk over Cellular) technology has long been available on the two way radio market, but it was the recent expansion of 4G cellular coverage and modern, „smart” transceivers with PTT buttons that put PoC into the focus of interest.

Blogger’s Review of the Wouxun KG-UVN1

This radio appeared in the Wouxun product lineup early 2019, in Hungary however it only had its debut in March 2020.
With my experience gathered over the years, I am actually happy that this time I am not reviewing a brand new device. Why? Usually, when new devices are put to market, despite all the extensive testing, the firmware always has some room for polishing. A one year old radio on the other hand usually has a firmware version already updated and bugfixed, and you can do without hunting for patches, firmware update or cope with menus full of irritating small bugs. I believe, this one year has been worth the wait.

A mini computer is enough to set up an SDR receiver

 

These micro computers are strong enough, no wonder radio hams make good use of them for DIY projects.
SDRplay have also compiled an image file with software needed for using your SDR. You just need to copy it to a Micro SD card and you can start listening on the radio bands.
