Yaesu DR-2XE FM/C4FM Repeater 2m / 70cm

Yaesu DR-2XE Yaesu DR-2XE

Yaesu offers you the dual mode repeater DR-2XE for a smooth transition from traditional FM mode to digital C4FM modulation. This relay is capable of both operation modes, the automatic mode select (AMS) recognizes the signal as C4FM digital or conventional FM and then the DR-2XE repeater retransmits the signal using the preset communications mode. This makes operating in FM as well as C4FM with only one hardware system possible.

The DR-2XE relay is shipped as a professional 19" system, an external power supply (13.8V, 15A) is required. The repeater can be used on 2m (144-146MHz) and 70cm (430-440MHz) with two receivers simultaneously, also as crossband repeater, see below. Configuration is done very comfortably via a large, coloured touch display on the front. With that you can program 'Id' (call sign), transmission and receiving frequency, transmission power (5, 20 or 50W), CTCSS, squelch and the automatic modulation select (AMS). Frequencies can be adjusted in 5 or 6.25 kHz steps.

The device requires 13.8V, max. 15A for operation. The DC cable is included. The repeater has an internal loudspeaker for local checking, also a microphone can be plugged in for testing the transmitter.

The DR-2XE repeater has no diplexer built-in, this needs to be added externally. On the rear side there are four separate connectors for transmit and receive antennas (2x RX, 2x TX) available. The transmit power can be adjusted to 5, 20 or 50W. The repeater identifier can be transmitted via voice or CW output in adjustable time intervals to meet regulatory requirements for automatic operating units.

New functions of the DR-2XE

IMRS, Internet Multi-Site Repeater: To achieve an IP networking independant from the Wires-X system, each repeater equipped with the option LAN-01A interface can be configured with up to 100 IP adresses (IPv4) of connected partner repeater systems. With a suitable selection of Digital Group IDs it is possible to form larger networks of connected repeaters. Each participant can use a certain DG-ID to address a local or remote repeater, a group of repeaters or the entire network. This IMRS operation requires the optional LAN-01A interface. This type of network operation does not require any infrastructure - no central server, no DNS address resolution, it is only depending on the individual configuration of each DR-2XE repeater. This allows continued operation over large areas even when other systems fail. Note: You can operate the DR-2XE either with Wires-X networking using the optional HRI-200 interface, or the IMRS type networking with the optional LAN-01A interface. A simultaneous operation of both netwirking systems is not possible.

2 Receivers: In contrast to the predecessor DR-1XE the new DR-2XE is equipped with two independant receivers (and one transmitter). This offers new modes of operation. You can use the secondary uplink frequency for emergency purposes only, for example for the operator to control the repeater in case of interference on the normal uplink. Or you operate both input frequencies at the same time in a 'first come, first serve' mode. Or you assign one frequency as priority which then overrides the input on the other frequency. You can even configure two separate transmit frequencies for each input, but only one signal can be transmitted at one time.

The already known Digital Group ID (DG-ID) system now offers more possibilities than before. For example end user devices can transmit certain telemetry data, or the signal level of the repeater. Repeaters which are connected with the IMRS system (see above) can be addressed by individual or group-wide DG-IDs. Please note that it might become necessary to upgrade your radio with the latest firmware to make use of the newer features.

Overall the DR-2XE has be designed more robust. The larger heat sink and a selection of commercial grade components allows a continued operation over long periods of time with any service requirements.

DR-2XE System Fusion II – Installation Support Program

As with the predecessor Yaesu offers an incentive to the amateur radio community to purchase this repeater. With the DR-2XE there will be two levels of financial support:

  1. Purchase of a new DR-2XE: Here Yaesu offers an incentive of 300 € to the dealer, which we pass directly to the end customer. To use this incentive please order the product 'DR-2XE-PROMO'. At the same time of your order we need the filled out application form. With out this form we cannot offer the promotional price.

    or

  2. Purchase of a new DR-2XE and Return of a used DR-1XE (trade in): Here the end customer can benefit from the above mentioned incentive (300 €) plus he or she will get a 300 € cashback directly from Yaesu, if the returned DR-1XE is accepted. Prerequisite for participation and procedure for this incentive:
    • Purchase of a new DR-2XE
    • Return of a used DR-1XE to WiMo. Please ask for an RMA number before returning an goods!
    • Fill out and submit the application form together with your order at WiMo
    • WiMo will check the returned DR-1XE for function, completeness, original packaging (if possible) and signs of wear. If all is ok we will forward the used repeater to Yaesu UK.
    • Yaesu UK will also check DR-1XE, if all is ok the 300 € cashback will be transferred. For this to succeed the application form must be submitted with the SEPA bank information of the customer.
    • Please calculate a duration of 8 to 10 weeks for the entire process until the payout of the cashback amount.

This incentive program is limited until December 31., 2017. According to our experience it is to be expected that Yaesu will extend this program early 2018.

HRI-200 Internet Link Adapter

HRI-200

With the HRI-200 the Yaesu C4FM-Devices like the FTM-400 or the DR-1XE or DR-2XE can be connected to the internet. The required software and the device cables are included. The HRI-200 can control 2 transceivers at the same time and can monitor 4 frequencies.
The HRI-200 interface supports the full functionality of Wires-X as the networking of the Group Monitor, Local Info, emergency ...
Even on older devices the HRI-200 can be used. Here the interface is then operated only in FM mode and controlled via DTMF. The features are significantly limited.

The connection between the HRI-200 and a computer is handled by the supplied USB cable. An additional power supply is not necessary. The necessary router configuration is handled by the UPnP protocol in the router itself.
