Dear Valued WiRES-X Node Owners;

Thank you for your patronage of the YAESU WiRES-X.

Please be informed that the latest WiRES-X PC Software (V1.50) along with a firmware update for the FT2DR/E has been released on our official website.

This update will enable the FT2DR/E to work as a WiRES-X Portable Node Station with the following firmware updates.

・FT2D FIRMWARE (MAIN Ver.3.10, DSP Ver.4.31, Sub Ver.2.01)

Even if you do not intend to set up a Portable Digital Node, it is strongly recommended that you update your WiRES-X PC software to the latest version (V1.50) because the latest version (V1.50) completely supports the compatibility of all features between the nodes with HRI-200 and the new portable digital nodes established with the FT2DR/E.*

The WiRES-X PC Software (V1.50) also include the following new features:

・- Sub-code Function: When selecting DG-ID ‘00’ in the WiRES-X software (under the transceiver settings) you can select a Sub-code from “00” to “26”. When the DG-ID and sub-code are set to “00,” the node relays C4FM digital signals of all DG-ID numbers. When a sub-code is set with a value of “01” – “26,” the node relays C4FM digital signals with the sub-code that is matched. This will allow multiple open nodes (DG-ID ‘00’) to work within the same communication range; this function is useful to avoid interference between nodes.
・- Digital Only Room: A Digital Room can be set up if desired with the WiRES-X PC SoftwareV1.50 (Note: The HRI-200 is needed in order to create a room.)

To set up a Portable Node Station with the FT2DR/E, the SCU-39 WiRES-X connection cable kit accessory is required.
The SCU-39 will be shortly available at the dealers’ stores. For any further details, please contact the dealers near your location.

With the new Portable Digital Node Function, users can gain access to WiRES-X Network directly by using the USB connected FT2DR/E with the radios PTT and microphone. The need to have an additional radio to talk to a node radio is no longer needed in order to enjoy the WiRES-X Network. The USB connected FT2DR/E can also function as an Access Point for RF communication.

Four (4) different types of operation modes are available.
For more information, please refer to the operation manual which is posted on our official website ( https://www.yaesu.com/jp/en/wires-x/node/index.php ).

Thank you for your kind interest in this matter, and we hope you enjoy the WiRES-X Communication for years to come.
