How to Program Your Yaesu FT-8800 Radio with ADMS-2I Software

If you own a Yaesu FT-8800 dual-band FM transceiver, you may want to program its memory channels and other settings with a computer. This can save you time and make it easier to manage your radio's configuration. One way to do this is to use the ADMS-2I programming software from RT Systems, Inc.

The ADMS-2I software is designed specifically for the Yaesu FT-8800 radio. It allows you to edit and store memory channel information, repeater settings, tone codes, scanning options, and more. You can also import data from external sources, such as online repeater directories or spreadsheets. The software has a user-friendly interface that lets you point and click on various options and fields.

Some Features of the Yaesu FT-8800 Radio

The Yaesu FT-8800 is a dual-band FM transceiver that offers many features and functions for amateur radio enthusiasts. Here are some of the features that make this radio stand out:

  • Wide Frequency Coverage: The FT-8800 can receive and transmit on the 144 MHz and 430 MHz amateur bands, as well as other public safety, commercial, aircraft, and government frequencies. You can also adjust the repeater shift and offset up to 99.95 MHz in 50 KHz steps.

  • Independent Two-Channel Operation: The FT-8800 can operate as two radios in one, with either 144 MHz or 430 MHz as the main TX/RX band, while simultaneously monitoring the other band. You can also set up your radio for VHF-VHF or UHF-UHF operation, if you prefer.

  • Cross-Band Repeat Capability: The FT-8800 can function as a cross-band repeater, which means it can relay signals from one band to another. This can be useful for emergency situations or to extend the range of a handheld unit.

  • Large, Easy-to-Read LCD Display: The FT-8800 has a large liquid crystal display that shows the frequency, mode, memory channel, tone code, and other information. The display also has four levels of illumination for different lighting conditions.

  • Over 1000 Memory Channels: The FT-8800 has 512 regular memory channels on each band, with alphanumeric labels and 10 banks for easy organization. It also has five home channels for favorite frequencies, 10 scan edge pairs for programmable memory scan (PMS), and six hyper memories that store complete sets of transceiver settings.

  • Versatile Scanning Capability: The FT-8800 can scan the memories, the entire operating band, or a portion of the band. It can also scan both bands simultaneously, or hop to the other band when the band edge is reached. You can also use the priority channel function to monitor a specific frequency while scanning.

  • Tone Systems and DTMF: The FT-8800 supports both CTCSS (Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System) and DCS (Digital Code Squelch) tone systems for accessing repeaters and avoiding interference. It also has a tone search function that can identify the tone code of an incoming signal. Additionally, it has a DTMF (Dual Tone Multi Frequency) keypad on the microphone for sending numeric codes.

  • ARTS and WIRES: The FT-8800 has two features that enhance communication with other Yaesu radios. ARTS (Automatic Range Transponder System) is a system that alerts you when you are out of range of another ARTS-equipped station. WIRES (Wide-Coverage Internet Repeater Enhancement System) is a system that allows you to access internet-linked repeaters with a simple DTMF code.

These are just some of the features of the Yaesu FT-8800 radio. For more information, you can refer to the user manual or visit the Yaesu website. 0efd9a6b88
