Firmware update for the FT2DR/E along with the latest WiRES-X PC Software
Yaesu is excited to announce that a firmware update for the FT2DR/E along with the latest WiRES-X PC Software (V1.50) has been released on our official website (www.yaesu.com). This update will enable the FT2DR/E to work as a WiRES-X Portable Node Station with the following firmware and the WiRES-X software: FT2D MAIN FW V3.10, FT2D DSP FW V4.31, WiRES-X PC Software V1.50
To set up a Portable Digital Node Station with the FT2DR/E, the SCU-39 WiRES-X connection cable kit accessory is required. The SCU-39 is now available, and we are ready to accept your orders.
Users can easily establish and operate a WiRES-X Portable Node Station by directly connecting the FT2DR/E to the PC with the SCU-39. The conventional HRI-200 internet interface kit is not required for the Portable Digital Node function, and no fixed global IP address is necessary. Since users do not need to open an Ethernet port, the WiRES-X communication from any location is possible - such as Hotel rooms, Airports, Vehicle Wi-Fi, or even Wi-Fi Access Points.
With the new Portable Digital Node Function, users can gain access to WiRES-X Network directly by using the USB connected FT2DR/E with the radios PTT and microphone. The need to have an additional radio to talk to a node radio is no longer needed in order to enjoy the WiRES-X Network. The USB connected FT2DR/E can also function as an Access Point for RF communication. Four different types of operation modes are available. For more information, please refer to the operation manual which is posted on our official website (www.yaesu.com).
Exciting new features of WiRES-X PC Software (V1.50) includes the following two updates:
