144/430 Dual Band C4FM/FM Digital Repeater
The YAESU DR-2X is a digital/conventional FM dual mode repeater that covers the VHF and UHF amateur radio bands. This next generation of the DR repeater series offers features of the DR-1X and more for greater flexibility and versitility. Upgrading your DR-1X to the DR-2X will provide continued use of conventional FM communication while integrating the use of digital communication functions through its advanced abilties.
some fo the DR-2X features include: Dual Active Receivers, IMRS true digital vocie connectivity, Fusion telecommand contorl via registered DP-ID’s, DG-ID functionality, and remote commands in either digital (Fusion telecommand) or via DTMF.
The repeater controller, receiver and transmitter are all packaged into a 19” standard cabinet rack mount panel unit for simple replacement of an existing repeater. Existing peripheral devices such as the duplexer and amplifier, etc., can continue to be used as-is.
Please see the DR-2X/XE Brochure for more information.
- Modulation Modes: Conventional FM, 12.5 kHz C4FM Digital (V/D Mode, VFR Mode, DFR Mode) *
- VHF or UHF operation (cross-band capable) / Dual Receive / Dual Transmit (DRDT)
- AMS (Automatic Mode Select) function automatically recognizes the signal as C4FM digital or conventional FM, and then the DR-2X repeater re-transmits the signal using the preset communications mode.
- 3.5-inch Full Color Touch Panel Operation
- Extremely reliable, high RF Output Power: 50W/20W/10W
- Emergency Operation: Supports auto-switched backup battery power operation.
- Front panel microphone connector is provided for use in repeater transmitter testing, and enables use as a base station.
- Built-in large-size monitor speaker with front panel volume control
- Full Integrability with existing repeater controllers using the 15 Pin rear I/O connection.
*System Fusion is not compatible with the D-STAR GMSK digital format.
DR-2X/XE New Features
- Dual Frequency Operation (DRDT)
- MSRL (Multi-site repeater link) Function for Easy Coverage Expansion using optional module
- New and improved “News Station” feature for Easy sharing of voice and text messaging.
- Enhanced Group Monitor Feature for Easy Grouping Set-up (DG-ID, DP-ID)
User Friendly Set-Up
The large front panel, color touch-screen permits convenient configuration of the transmitter and receiver frequencies, transmit power output and AMS functions. When the settings are complete the display can be switched off to prevent accidental operation. Simply turn the display switch ON and use the touch panel screen to confirm or change settings. The transmit and receive frequencies, CTCSS tones, squelch, AMS, and other functions are configured by the touch panel screen
Enhanced Group Monitor Feature
Yaesu’s revolutionary Group Monitor feature allows you to track multiple resources
quickly and efficiently by displaying telemetry and signal strength information of other
group members that share the same Digital Group Identification number.
Dual Receive / Dual Transmit (DRDT)
The unique Receiver, Transmitter and controller combination in the DR-2X/DR-2XE allows
the control operator to assign up to two frequency pairs per repeater. This feature enables
two separate dual-band inputs and outputs per single DR-2X/DR-2XE repeater, allowing
even more methods of access.
MSRL (Multi-site Repeater Link)
The MSRL (Multi Site Repeater Link) allows the repeater operator to link multiple
repeaters over a Wide-Area-Network (WAN) or Local-area-network (LAN) across short or
long distances. Realizing the reliability shortcomings inherent with WAN (Wide Area
Networking) such as the internet, the new DR-2X/DR-2XE incorporates direct connectivity
into a variety of networking environments to provide high quality Digital and Analog
communications even when “All Else Fails” .
New and Improved News Station Function
Quickly store and retrieve digital audio and text messages for groups or individual
operators that can be accessed on demand, any time of the day (* Requires Optional MSRL module).
