SCU-20

The optional Yaesu SCU-19 USB computer cable permits the  connection of the FT-2DE or FT-1DE to a PC computer.

Compatible Radios;
FTM-100d & FTM-400D


SCU-39 kit

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.

vehicle wi-fi, or even wi-fi Access Points
