Tips & Tricks Related to Wires-X and Yaesu System Fusion II

  • Can I store a repeater’s DG-ID in my radio’s memory?
    Answer
    Yes, but only with very few Yaesu radios. As of January, 2020, the only radios that can store DG-ID in a memory are FT-3D, FTM-3200, FTM-3207, and FTM-7250. Sorry. The more popular radios like the FTM-400, FTM-100, FT-70D, FT-1, FT-2D do not have the capability. Apparently, complaining to Yaesu about it has not been effective yet. If you know of another Yaesu radio that has this capability, let us know!
  • I need to understand this DG-ID stuff. Can you help?
    Answer
    Sure. Start from the point of thinking about DG-ID as being the Yaesu version of CTCSS (you know: PL tones that are used in FM analog). Yaesu has a video that explains it. It could be more concise, but if you can bear to watch the first 22 minutes, you will have a much better understanding. Watch the official Yaesu video about DG-ID by clicking here.
