FYI – The cheapest way to get on Fusion. Now $134.95 at HRO.-
Probably similar prices elsewhere.
Drawbacks compared to the FTM-100DR ($309):
- Only 2 meters
- No APRS support
- No GPS
- Can’t control Wires-X digital nodes
- Can’t be used as a Wires-X node
- Will work Fusion C4FM / thru Fusion repeaters with Auto Mode Select
- Analog FM also
- Can work distant stations via Wires-X if repeater is already connected or someone else connects.
- 65 watts
I would definitely recommend the FTM-100DR or FTM-400XR, but if the advantages of it don’t interest you, the FTM-3200 is still a good radio to work through our repeater with and at least take advantage of the digital mode.
