What does it do?
FTB2D is a memory management program for non-Japanese versions of Yaesu FT2DR/E handheld transceivers.
It enables you to:
backup/restore the cloneable memory using either a programming cable or the radio's built-in BACKUP feature which uses an SD card
modify memory definitions
add and delete memory definitions
manage which memories are in which banks
sort memories by frequency or name
analyse and report on duplicate frequencies
edit the PMS memories
edit the Home memories
edit the frequency, mode and other settings in the band VFOs
edit the radio's Menu settings and APRS/GPS settings
The Import/Export facility enables you to exchange memory information between the following radios by using .CSV format memory definition files. You will also need to use the appropriate FTBxxx software for the target radio.
FT-817, FT-847, FT-857, FT-897 (including ND and D models), FT-1802, FT-1807, FT-2800, FT-7800, FT-7900, FT-8800, FT-8900, FT1D, FT2D, FT-60, VR-5000, VX-3, VX-8/8D, VX-110, VX-150, VX-120, VX-170, VX-177, VX-270
VX-2, VX-5, VX-6, VX-7 - using the Commander range of software by Jim Mitchell, KC8UNJ
Memory definitions can also be imported from TravelPlus for Repeaters using .TPE files, and from ButelSoftware's ARC250.
Sample memories files are provided so that you may explore the editing facilities available without having a radio or cable to connect to your PC.
