Fully Updated – Comes complete. $1200 Shipped in Canada BC to NFLD.  Extra for up north.   

    Yaesu DR-2X

    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.

    DR-2X/XE Features

    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).
