Icom ID-1 23cm DSTAR digital/analogue Mobile Transceiver


The ID-1 can operate in both Digital Voice and Digital Data Mode as well as conventionally with current analogue 1.2GHz repeaters. The ID-1 has an operating frequency range of 1240-1300 MHz, with FM and GMSK (Digital) modulation formats providing clear voice and high-speed data transmission (128kbps). The D-STAR digital repeater system allows you to relay the digital voice and data offering long distance communication capability through multiple repeater links and/or an Internet gateway relay.

PC Remote Controller Supplied The controller software is supplied with the ID-1. When the ID-1 is connected to a PC via a USB cable, most functions of the ID-1 can be controlled from the PC. In Digital Data mode operation, you can browse web sites and send and receive e-mail as if the ID-1 is a 10W wireless network adapter. * Ethernet port is required for Digital Data mode operation.
* Service may not be provided at repeater site.

Short message in DV mode Short messages of 20 characters max. can be sent in Digital Voice mode operation.

Useful Callsign Function The ID-1 has useful callsign function that embeds your own and the called station’s callsign in your transmission. When you input “CQCQCQ” as the intended station, you can make a CQ call in the area. The calling station’s ID is displayed on the received station and a newly received callsign can be automatically stored in the memory.

Digital Callsign Squelch (DSQL) & Digital Code Squelch (CSQL) The DSQL opens the squelch, only when your callsign is received. When you share a single callsign with a club or group members, the CSQL function allows you to set a CSQL code from 00 to 99 and provides quiet stand-by while other members are talking.

EMR Mode Operation When you require the attention of all stations in the area, the Enhanced Monitor Request (EMR) mode operation allows the caller to bypass the CSQL and DSQL setting of the receivers station. During EMR mode operation, all receiving stations will hear your audio, even though they may be muted.

Analogue FM Mode Operation The ID-1 also operates in analogue FM mode, allowing you to communicate with an analogue FM transceiver. In FM mode operation, the ID-1 has CTCSS tone squelch for quiet stand-by.

ID-1 Additional Features

Optimized for ease of operation day or night, the FT-1900E is one tough radio for operating in a tough world! 3 Watts of pristine audio. Large LCD and 200 memories.

55 Watts of Power Output The FT-1900E provides a hefty 55 Watts of power output, with "low power" settings of 25, 10, and 5 Watts, for situations where full power is not required.


Large LCD Display The large 6 digit backlit LCD on the FT-1900E ensure excellent visibility

Loud Audio with Internal Speaker The FT-1900E packs 3W BIG watts of Loud Audio with its own Internal Speaker for those noisy environments.

Extended Receiver Coverage The FT-1900E provides receiver coverage of 136-174 MHz, so you can listen in on a wide variety of commercial, military, public safety, and marine communications.

Illuminated Microphone with Keyboard Frequency Entry The supplied MH-48a6j DTMF Microphone is illuminated for ease of nighttime use, and you may enter operating frequencies directly from the keypad. What's more, memory channels may also be recalled directly via the keypad.

200 Memory channels with Alpha-numeric Labelling The FT-1900's extensive memory system includes 200 regular memories, ten pairs of band-limit memories, 8 memory banks, and a one-touch "Home" channel. Memory channels store repeater offset information, as well as CTCSS or DCS data, and can have a six-character label appended, for quick channel recognition. And the memories may be allocated into as many as eight memory banks, for more efficient scanning.

Programmable Four user-programmable "soft" keys are provided on the MH-48a6j microphone, allowing you to bring often-used Menu items, or front panel key functions, to your fingertips.

Built-in CTCSS and DCS Encoder/Decoder Circuits The FT-1900E includes both CTCSS and DCS Encoder/Decoder circuitry, with Reverse CTCSS Decoding also available, to mute your receiver when a particular tone is received (instead of opening your squelch). And you can encode CTCSS and decode DCS, or vice versa, too, if your application requires it.

Adjustable Mic Gain and Wide/Narrow Deviation and RX Bandwidth The microphone gain for the FT-1900R's transmitter is adjustable, so you can optimize it for your voice level as well as background noise in your operating location. And for operation in crowded channel environments, the TX deviation and RX bandwidth may both be reduced via the Menu.

Automatic Repeater Shift (ARS), Automatic Power-Off (APO), and BCLO (Busy Channel Lock-Out)
ARS: Automatically selects the typical repeater shift used in your country, based on the current operating frequency.
APO: Automatically turns power off after a user-defined time period, to prevent you from running down your car battery if you forget to turn your rig off.
BCLO: Prevents you from transmitting on an occupied frequency (especially valuable during Tone Squelch or DCS operation).

CW Trainer You can practice your Morse Code recognition, using this novel trainer that sends you five-character code groups, with variable speed and instant feedback as to the correct characters sent to you.

Security Password to Prevent Unauthorized Use A defeatable (by the owner) Security Password system is provided for the FT-1900E, so you can limit operational access to yourself and any other users (if any) informed of the password for the transceiver.

Easy Access to YAESU's Renowned WiRES-II™ Internet Linking Nodes A front panel key provides instant access to WiRES-II nodes. More information about WiRES, Yaesu's exciting and fun way to communicate via Amateur Radio AND the Internet, may be found at the WiRES-II Web site:

The FT-7900E provides 50 Watts of power on the 144 MHz band, and 40 Watts on the 430 MHz, and is designed for simplicity of operation along with high performance in the receiver section. The FT-7900E is ideal for the active Ham who has a need for simplex, repeater, or FM satellite operation on both bands, but without the complication of cross-band repeat capability, which is available on our FT-8800E and FT-8900R models.


High Power Output Boasting a big 50 Watts of power output on 144 MHz, and 40 Watts on 430 MHz, the FT-7900R also includes provision for three lower power levels, so you never have to use more power than you really need. The power level is stored in regular and Hyper Memory registers, too

Wide Receiver Frequency Coverage The FT-7900R provides receiver coverage from 108 to 520 MHz, and 700 to 999.99 MHz (cellular blocked), so you have available a wide range of monitoring excitement, including AM Aircraft, Public Safety, Government, Business, and, of course, Amateur communications. The synthesizer steps appropriate for the operating band are automatically selected, too!

Large LCD Display The large backlit LCD on the FT-7900R ensure excellent visibility

One-Touch Five front panel keys allow complete transceiver configuration status to be stored for convenient one-touch recall. So you can set up favourite frequencies in each operating band, including the receive-only bands, and then recall them with a single touch of a button!

Over 1000 Memory Channels The FT-7900R’s incredible memory channel capacity includes registers for over 1000 channels, each capable of storing a 6-character Alpha-Numeric label. And the memories may be stored in any of the 20 available memory groups; a particular memory channel may also be stored in multiple groups, if desired.

YSK-7800 Remote Mounting Kit (option) Using the optional YSK-7800 Separation Kit, which contains both cabling and a bracket for the remote front panel, you can mount the FT-7900R’s front panel on the vehicle’s dash board, then stow the radio’s body under the seat or in some other convenient, out-of-the-way location. The cables are approximately 20 feet (6 m) in length.

WiRES™ Internet Linking Capability The FT-7900R’s DTMF signalling capability includes provision for easy access to Yaesu’s WIRES™ (Wide-coverage Internet Repeater Enhancement System) Internet linking nodes, as well as other linking systems that require a DTMF string for access.
