The FT-991’s in Stock in Europe – FT-991 ora è disponibile in Europa

The Yaesu FT-991 HF 50MH VHF UHF Transceiver in Stock in Europe. – The transceiver offers full-fledged support for all modes and include C4FM Digital (4FSK) – Rear panel USB port allows connection to a PC with a single cable (CAT control, Audio interface, PTT/SHIFT control) … at long last!

FT-991-i0gej-00

The new FT-991 is capable of using only 2, C4FM digital modes:
1) V/D mode = communicates Voice & Data simultaneously and using 6.25 + 6.25 kHz bandwidth – [DN] is displayed on the LCD – the station location info is contained within the tx digital signal;
2) Voice FR mode (Full Rate) = trasmits digital voice using the full 12.5 kHz bandwidth – [VW] is displayed on the LCD – the location info is not included in the tx signals;
[Note] Data FR mode (Full Rate) = high speed data communication mode is not supported in the FT-991!  (Data Full Rate by C4FM is not possible).

FT-991-i0gej-02

The new digital mode C4FM (4FSK) spectrum on 29.460 MHz (experimental test in USA) measure about 15 KHz wide in the HF bands!! (Q: Voice is voice, whether it is digital or analog modes? … used only in the FM phone bands?)

CS7000  A NEW MULTIPROTOCOL RADIO by CSI – USA

jerry-Wanger-CSI

This radio is defined for the Amateur Market and will have an introductory price of $249. – Capable of doing DMR, NXDN, dPMR, P25, ANALOG, D-STAR, AND FUSION Protocols. – This radio is built to commercial strandards and will cover commercial Frequencies.
The first version will ship with Analog, DMR, and D-STAR protocols with future firmware updates allowing other protocols – There’ll just be firmware upgrades with which you can add features.!

CSI-specimen

On the CS7000 the (firmware) software is open source, that Hams will evolve the kernel to make it increasingly more powerful to add industry standard protocols.

The primary microprocessor is a STM32F405VGT6. This is an ARM Cortex M4 32 bit high speed microprocessor – The second microprocessor is a DVSI 3000R. This microprocessor uses a TMS320F2811 core and is dedicated to executing the AMBE and AMBE +2 Vocoder formats and other algorithms (!!)

CSI planning on is releasing a single radio that will do both modes of analog and digital. – New expected Delivery is Jannuary  2014 (CSI update 28/10/2014) more news…. see the two link and info below

italianoIn un’intervista esclusiva a http://www.va3xpr.net/, il proprietario e presidente della Connect Systems Inc. – USA, Jerry Wanger parla dei piani produttivi della sua azienda che sorprenderà i Radioamatori con il lancio di questa nuova radio digitale vocale che supporterà sia il Digital Mobile Radio (DMR – TDMA) che, lo Smart Digital Technologies per Radio Amatori (D-STAR o D-star a seconda del sistema proprietario o compatibile in GMSK) – Successivamente saranno completati gli altri modi digitali.

Jerry Wanger prosegue dicendo CHE Il CS7000 porterà un avanzamento nella tecnologia progettuale e il prezzo medio rispetto a quello che è ora disponibile sul mercato, tanto da cambiarlo radicalmente. –  Il progetto prevede un firmware open-source che permetterà ai Radioamatori interessati di implementarlo e ampliarne le possibili applicazioni  tenendo conto dei processori e codec previsti e più sopra indicati.

D-STAR & ID-5100 Quick-info & Features
D-STAR Protocol the linking is accomplished by the repeater controller, the gateway server and just recently the reflector. – When using this method, only the source radio’s signal path is specified. – In the new G2 Software an administrator can specify an alias that includes multiple nodes. – A user then specifies the alias in their [UR Call] and their signal is routed to all nodes that the administrator has specified (total of up to 11), the repeater sends a stream of data to each of the specified servers.

D-STAR-routing D-STAR-multi-site analog-digital

Latest software written by Robin, AA4RC d-Plus Linking with Reflectors and the multiple repeaters can all link to the same reflector (all traffic on one node is repeated to another node) – The ID-5100 has a new generation design and range of features including: • d-Plus reflector usability (can select “reflector” in to field) • Enhanced DR mode (also include analogue repeaters!?) • Added “Nearby Repeater Scan” in DR scan function • RS-MS1A Android application will be a free to use download. It controls the radio for DR mode operation, exchanging text messages/pictures and showing GPS location over Google Maps etc. (preliminary….see the official data and info)

FDMA_multiple-modeMulti Mode FDMA/C4FM – FM – Bandwidth 6.25+6.25 kHz or 12.5 kHz – provides 9.6 kbps data baud rate speed! ability to transfer large amounts of data! – The D-STAR DV provides 4.8 kbps into a only 6 kHz bandwidth! – Yaesu FDMA multi mode:
1) V/D mode – Voice/Data simultaneous communication mode; 2) Voice FR Mode – Voice Full Rate Mode; 3) Data FR mode – High Speed Data Communication Mode; 4) Analog FM mode – (conventional Analog FM). (see the picture)

Wires-x_HRI-200In the world we developed IRLP and Echolink. Yaesu went against IRLP and Echolink and created WIRES-II – (latest -X) HRI-200 … This commercial stuff fits 2 voice/data channels into one repeater DR-1. Yup, but at twice the bandwidth of D-STAR! … Yaesu is coming out with “DMR” radios soon, but Motorola, Hytera, Vertex, Icom and Kenwood already exist .. Mototrbo – dPMR – IDAS – NEXDGE – (DMR FDMA & TDMA is an open ETSI standard) – There are advantages and disadvantages to most new technologies, but it’s often the case that the supposed benefits are just that, supposed !! (identically allows us to compare FM and D-STAR etc.).

italianoLa Yaesu Musen Co., LTD ha svelato ora la sua nuova piattaforma digitale definita “System Fusion” multimodo, presentando anche il suo Yaesu DR-1 che può essere configurato per consentire di “fondere” i due modi con selezione automatica (AMS) del tipo di modulazione. – Questo permette, dice Yaesu, l’integrazione tra la tradizionale FM e il digitale C4FM, un FDMA già noto come “DMR” in uso da tempo nel commerciale da parte di quasi tutti i produttori di radio! (..Motorola, Hytera, Vertex, Icom e Kenwood già producono con il DRM e alcune variabili proprie… come: Mototrbo – dPMR  -IDAS – NEXDGE etc. (il DMR, FDMA & TDMA è un sistema aperto in Standar ETSI) -

Qui sopta immagini del veicolare FTM-400D (USA) o FTM-400E (EU) – Comunque si vedono diverse novità  introdotte con il sistema Yaesu a canale di 12,5 kHz porta fino a 9,6 kbps il “data baud rate speed” che abilità il trasferimento di una più alta massa di dati! – Il D-STAR DV normale ha 4.8 kbps, però solo su 6 kHz di bw canale. – Per questo il C4FM avrà un audio migliore anche per il BER-FEC più veloce – Altra buona differenza: con l’utilizzo del Ripetitore DR-1, un utente con nuovo apparato digitale può trasmettere in digitale, il ripetitore DR-1 converte il segnale C4FM digitale in FM analogico per altri utenti con apparati non digitali e viceversa (ecco la “fusione”!) –  Il ripetitore è configurabile (in AMS – FIX o AUTO) tramite un’interfaccia touch-screen direttamente dal suo pannello frontale.

[Nota]  Yaesu va quasi sempre controcorrente Hi !
Nel mondo radioamatoriale si è ben affermato lo standard IRLP e Echolink, loro hanno introdotto l’interfaccia VoIP wireless per Internet detta WIRES-X (Ver. I/II/..X); – Poi con già più di 1000 ripetitori D-STAR in “GSMK” attivi nel mondo e collegati con Gatewai in varie reti internet già sviluppate appositamente dai Radioamatori, Yaesu introduce un “DMR” digitale che è sempre in standard FDMA, però con modulazione “G4FM” (4xFSK) e 12.5 kHz di BW, non compatibile con il D-STAR! – Sarà un nuovo gioco per questioni commerciali o veramente una innovazione anche per i Radioamtori? Aspettiamo e si potrà verificare. – Sempre troviamo vantaggi e svantaggi per la maggior parte delle nuove tecnologie, ma spesso capita il caso che i presunti benefici siano solo presunti! (potrebbe esserlo anche per il confronto tra i modi FM e D-STAR, certo!).
