Tailor-made for DX'ing, the new TS-480HX HF transceiver raises the bar on portable performance. Despite its compact dimensions, it delivers an astonishing punch: 200W with a DC 13.8V supply. Yet its separate control panel is perfect for base station use. Sharing virtually all the same powerful features is the 100W TS-480SAT, except that it boasts a built-in antenna tuner. Whichever model you choose, you can be sure of enjoying the best of both worlds with first-rate communications at home and on the trail. • 200W output (50MHz: 100W) DC 13.8V in the TS-480HX • 100W model with built-in Antenna Tuner with the TS-480SAT • TX/RX 16-bit AF digital signal processing • Separate LCD control panel with speaker • Continuous RX: 500kHz (VFO: 30kHz) to 60MHz • TX covers all Amateur bands 1.8MHz to 50MHz • Other features include a TS-950 class quad-mixer • PSK31 compatibility • Packet cluster tune (with TM-D700A) • PC-based control • Optional IF filters Specifications Beat Cancel Yes Cross Band Repeat Yes With a TM-D700A or TM-D710A connected CTCSS Enc/Dec CW Auto Tune Yes DCS No Dual Band Receive No DX Packet Cluster Tune Yes With a TM-D700A or TM-D710A connected Memory Channels 100 Noise Reduction Yes Number of Bands 11 Output Power W PC Programmable No Radio Control Software Yes ARCP-480 Receiver Operating Mode FM/FM-W/FM-N AM/USB/LSB/CW Receiver Range .5-30Mhz 50-54Mhz VFO Continuous 30-60MHz RX Equalizer Yes Satellite Communications No SkyCommand Yes With a TM-D700A or TM-D710A connected TNC No Transmit Frequency Range 50-54MHz TX Equalizer Yes TX Monitor Yes Voice Synthesizer (Optional) Yes VGS-1 VoIP Yes Wide/Narrow FM Yes Automatic Antenna Tuner Yes
