Maximum RF output is 40 watts (TM-255E).
A HI/LO switch enables power reduction to 5 watts.
100 multi-function memory channels plus 1 call
Facilitating on-the-move operation are 101 memory
channels, plus memory shift and memory scroll functions. Channels 50~98
are capable of storing transmit and receive frequencies independently.
There is a choice of full band and
programme band scans, memory scan with memory channel lock-out, MHz scan
and V/M/C scan. The operator can also select time-operated or
carrier-operated scan stop modes, and adjust scan speed.
Data connector for 1200/9600 bps packet
A 6-pin mini DIN
connector lets the operator enjoy either standard 1200 bps or 9600 bps
high-speed packet communications with a TNC.
DDS (Direct Digital Synthesizer) with fuzzy control
incorporated "fuzzy logic" control circuitry, so the main encoder tunes
smoothly from fine (5 Hz step) to fast forward (200 Hz step).
Twin tuning dials
In addition to the smooth-action dial on
the main unit, there is a click-type dial on the detachable panel for
convenient mobile use.
The user-friendly menus -- which are also
accessible via the supplied microphone -- are divided into two groups (A
& B) depending on frequency of use.
AIP (Advanced Intercept Point)
circuitry allows the operator to choose either high sensitivity or a
high intercept point to suit conditions. IF-SHIFT (SSB, CW) and a pulse
noise blanker further improve RX performance.
TF-SET is available when the receive frequency is
locked, so the operator can avoid losing a targeted station.
The supplied remote-control
microphone has 4 programmable function keys -- ideal for mobile
