INSTALLATION
This chapter describes the installation procedure for integrating the FTM-10R into a typical amateur radio station. It is presumed that you possess technical knowledge and conceptual understanding consistent with your status as a licensed radio amateur. Please take some
extra time to make certain that the important safety and technical requirements detailed in
this chapter are followed closely.
PRELIMINARY INSPECTION
Inspect the transceiver visually immediately upon opening the packing carton. Confirm
that all controls and switches work freely, and inspect the cabinet for any damage. Gently
shake the transceiver to verify that no internal components have been shaken loose due to
rough handling during shipping.
If any evidence of damage is discovered, document it thoroughly and contact the shipping
company (or your local dealer, if the unit was purchased over-the-counter) so as to get
instructions regarding the prompt resolution of the damage situation. Be certain to save the
shipping carton, especially if there are any punctures or other evidence of damage incurred
during shipping. If it is necessary to return the unit for service or replacement, use the
original packing materials. Then put the entire package inside another packing carton to
preserve the evidence of shipping damage for insurance purposes.
INSTALLATION TIPS
To ensure long life of the components, be certain to provide adequate ventilation around the
cabinet of the FTM-10R.
Do not install the transceiver on top of another heat-generating device (such as a power
supply or amplifier). Avoid heating vents and window locations that could expose the transceiver to excessive direct sunlight, especially in hot climates. The FTM-10R should not be
used in an environment where the ambient temperature exceeds +140 °F (+60 °C).

FTM-10R OPERATING MANUAL
INSTALLATION
SAFETY INFORMATION
The FTM-10R is an electrical apparatus, as well as a generator of High RF (Radio Frequency) energy. You should exercise all safety precautions that are appropriate for this type
of device. These safety tips apply to any device installed in a well-designed amateur radio
station.
Never allow unsupervised children to play in the vicinity of your transceiver or
antenna installation.
Be certain to wrap any wire or cable splices thoroughly with insulating electrical
tape, to prevent short circuits.
Do not route cables or wires through doorjambs or other locations where they may
become frayed and shorted to ground or to each other.
Do not stand in front of a directional antenna while you are transmitting into that
antenna. Do not install a directional antenna in any location where humans or pets
may walk in the main directional lobe of the antenna's radiation pattern.
In mobile installations, it is preferable to mount the antenna on top of the vehicle, if
feasible, this will utilize the car body as a counterpoise and raise the radiation pattern as far away from passengers as possible.
During mobile operation when stopped (in a parking lot, for example), make it a
practice to switch to Low power if there are people walking nearby.
Never wear dual-earmuff headphones while driving a vehicle.
Do not attempt to drive your vehicle while making a telephone or auto patch call
while using the optional DTMF microphone. Pull over to the side of the road, whether
dialing manually or using the auto-dial feature.
Warning!: High RF voltage is present in the TX RF section of the transceiver while transmitting. Do not touch the TX RF section while transmitting.
FTM-10R OPERATING MANUAL
11
INSTALLATION
MOBILE INSTALLATION
The FTM-10R must only be installed in vehicles having a 13.8 Volt negative ground electrical system. Mount the transceiver where the display, controls, and microphone are easily
accessible, using the supplied Mobile Mounting Bracket.
The transceiver may be installed in almost any location, but should not be positioned near
a heating vent or anywhere where it might interfere with driving (either visually or mechanically). Make sure to provide plenty of space on all sides of the transceiver so that air
can flow freely around the radio’s case.
An antenna and an antenna cable are not included in the box. Purchase them separately to
accommodate your transceiver installation.
U The DC power cable draws a large current when transmitting. The power cable should
be wired as short as possible, and connected directly to the battery. (Do not use the
cigarette lighter socket for power connections).
U Never remove the fuse holders from the DC cables
U Never connect the transceiver directly to a 24 V battery.
U Select a low-loss coaxial cable to connect the transceiver with the antenna. Use the
shortest length possible.
U Select a quality, high efficiency VHF/UHF antenna, and mount it in a good location on
the car to obtain the maximum performance from the transceiver. (NOTE: An antenna
designed with a matching device that forms a low DC resistance to ground may have
poor reception on the AM broadcast band.)
U The antenna depends on good grounding to realize maximum performance. Contact
your dealer for information on transceiver and antenna installation.
U If alternator noise exists, use a line filter in the DC power cable connection.
IMPORTANT: Select a location which can support the weight of the FTM-10R transceiver and does not interfere with your driving.

FTM-10R OPERATING MANUAL
INSTALLATION
Mobile Power Connections
To minimize voltage drop and avoid blowing the vehicle's fuses, connect the supplied DC
power cable directly to the battery terminals. Do not attempt to defeat or bypass the DC
cable fuse - it is there to protect you, your transceiver, and your vehicle's electrical system.
Warning!
Never apply AC power to the power cable of the FTM-10R, nor DC voltage greater
than 15.8 Volts. When replacing the fuse, use only a 15-A fuse. Failure to observe
these safety precautions will void the Limited Warranty on this product.
U Before connecting the transceiver, check the voltage at the battery terminals while revving the engine. If the voltage exceeds 15 Volts, repair the vehicle’s voltage regulator
before proceeding with installation.
U Connect the RED power cable lead to the POSITIVE (+) battery terminal, and the
BLACK power cable lead to the NEGATIVE (-) terminal. If you need to extend the
power cable, use #12 AWG or larger insulated, stranded copper wire. Solder the splice
connections carefully, and wrap the connections thoroughly with insulating electrical
tape.
U Before connecting the cable to the transceiver, verify the voltage and polarity of the
voltage at the transceiver end of the DC cable using a DC voltmeter. Now connect the
transceiver to the DC cable.

INSTALLATION
BASE STATION INSTALLATION
The FTM-10R is ideal for base station use as well as in mobile installations. The FTM-10R
is specifically designed to integrate into your station easily, using the following information
as a reference.
AC Power Supplies
Operation of the FTM-10R from an AC line requires a power supply capable of providing
at least 9 Amps continuously at 13.8 Volts DC. The FP-1025A and FP-1030A DC Power
Supplies are available from your Yaesu dealer to satisfy these requirements. Other wellregulated power supplies may be used if they meet the above voltage and current specifications.
Use the DC power cable supplied with your transceiver to make power connections to the
power supply. Connect the RED power cable lead to the POSITIVE (+) power supply
terminal, and connect the BLACK power cable lead to the NEGATIVE (-) power supply
terminal.
14
FTM-10R OPERATING MANUAL
INSTALLATION
ANTENNA CONSIDERATIONS
The FTM-10R is designed for use with antennas presenting an impedance of near 50 Ohms
at all operating frequencies. To avoid damage that could result if transmission occurs accidentally without an antenna, the antenna (or a 50 Ohm dummy load) should be connected
whenever the transceiver is turned on.
Ensure that your antenna is designed to handle 50 Watts of transmitter power. Some magnetic-mount mobile antennas, designed for use with hand-held transceivers, may not be
capable of withstanding this power level. Consult the antenna manufacturer's specification
sheet for details.
Use high-quality 50-Ohm coaxial cable for the lead-in to your FTM-10R transceiver. All
efforts at providing an efficient antenna system will be wasted if poor quality, “lossy” coaxial cable is used. Losses in coaxial lines increase as the frequency increases, so an 8meter-long (25’) coaxial line with under 1 dB of loss at 144 MHz may have a loss of 3 dB
or more at 446 MHz. Choose your coaxial cable carefully based on the installation location
(mobile vs. base) and the overall length of the cable required. (For very short runs of cable
in a mobile installation, the smaller, more flexible cable types may be acceptable.)
For reference, the chart below shows approximate loss figures for typically available coaxial cables frequently used in VHF/UHF installations.

Loss figures are approximate; consult cable manufacturers’ catalogs for complete specifications.
In outdoor installations, be certain to weatherproof all connectors thoroughly, as water
entering a coaxial cable will cause losses to escalate rapidly, thus diminishing your communications effectiveness. The use of the shortest possible length of the highest quality coaxial
cable that fits within your budget will ensure the best performance from your FTM-10R.
Your dealer should be able to assist you with all aspects of your antenna installation requirements.

SMART MENU FEATURES
ARTSTM
The ARTS feature uses DCS signaling to inform both parties when you and another ARTS
equipped station are within communications range. This may be particularly useful during
Search and Rescue situations, where it is important to stay in contact with other members of
your group.
Both stations must set up their DCS codes to the same code number, then activate their
ARTS feature using the command appropriate for their radio. Alert ringers may be activated, if desired.
Whenever you push the PTT key, or every 25 seconds after ARTS is activated, your radio
will transmit a signal which includes a (subaudible) DCS code
for about 1 second. If the other radio is in range, the beeper
will sound (if enabled) and the display will show “IN.RANGE”,
otherwise the out of range display “OUT.RANGE” will be display during ARTS operation.
Whether you talk or not, the polling every 25 seconds will continue until you de-activate ARTS. When ARTS is de-activated,
DCS will also be deactivated (if you were not using it previously in non- ARTS operation).
If you move out of range for more than one minute (four pollings), your radio will sense
that no signal has been received. Three beeps will sound, and the display will revert to
“OUT.RANGE”. If you move back into range, your radio will again beep, and the display
will change back to the “IN.RANGE” indication.
During ARTS operation, your operating frequency will continue to be displayed, but no
changes may be made to it or other settings. You must terminate ARTS in order to resume
normal operation. This is a safety feature designed to prevent accidental loss of contact due
to channel change, etc.
1. Set the FTM-10R to the desired amateur band frequency by the VFO or Memory channel selection.
2. Set your radio and the other radio(s) to the same DCS code number per the discussion
on page 65.
2. Press the top panel

3. Press the
key. You will observe the “OUT.RANGE” display on the LCD. The ARTS
operation has now commenced.
4. Every 25 seconds, your radio will transmit a “polling” call to the other station. When that
station responds with its own ARTS polling signal, the display will change to “IN.RANGE”
to confirm that the other station’s polling code was received in response to yours.

Search memory bank, consisting of 31 memories (15 above the current frequency, 15 below the current frequency, plus the current frequency itself). All channels where activity is
present will be loaded into the Smart Search memories. The search will stop after one
sweep in each direction, whether or not all 31 memories are filled.

CTCSS OPERATION
Many repeater systems require that a very-low-frequency audio tone be superimposed on
your FM carrier in order to activate the repeater. This helps prevent false activation of the
repeater by radar or spurious signals from other transmitters. This tone system, called
“CTCSS” (Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System), is included in your FTM-10R, and is
very easy to activate.
CTCSS setup involves setting the Tone Mode and then setting of the Tone Frequency.
These actions are set up using Menu Items “F40 SQL TYPE” and “F39 SQL TSQF”.
Press and hold the [VOL/SEL] key for one second to activate the Menu Mode.
Rotate the DIAL knob to select Menu Item “F40 SQL TYPE”.

Press the
Rotate the DIAL knob so that “TONE SQL” appears on the
display. This means that the Tone Squelch system is active,
which mutes your FTM-10R’s receiver until it receives a
call from another radio sending out a matching CTCSS tone.
This can help keep your radio quiet until a specific call is
received, which may be helpful while operating in congested areas.
Note: 1) You may notice a “REV TONE” indication on the display while you rotate the
DIAL knob in this step. This means that the Reverse Tone Squelch system is
active, which mutes your FTM-10R’s receiver (instead of opening the squelch)
when it receives a call from the radio sending a matched CTCSS tone. The
“T SQ” icon will blink on the display when the Reverse Tone Squelch system
is activated.
Note: 2) You may notice a “DCS” indication on the display while you rotate the DIAL
knob still more. We’ll discuss the Digital Code Squelch system shortly.
5. When you have made your selection of the CTCSS tone mode, press the
key momentarily, then rotate the DIAL knob three clicks counter-clockwise to select Menu
Item “F39 SQL TSQF”. This Menu selection allows setting
of the CTCSS tone frequency to be used.

DCS OPERATION
Another form of tone access control is Digital Code Squelch, or DCS. It is a newer, more
advanced tone system that generally provides more immunity from false paging than does
CTCSS. The DCS Encoder/Decoder is built into your FTM-10R, and operation is very
similar to that just described for CTCSS. Your repeater system may be configured for DCS.
If not, it is frequently quite useful in Simplex operation if your friend(s) use transceivers
equipped with this advanced feature.
Note: Just as in CTCSS operation, DCS requires that you set the Tone Mode to DCS and
that you select a DCS Code.

EPCS (ENHANCED PAGING & CODE SQUELCH) OPERATION
The FTM-10R includes an Enhanced CTCSS tone encoder/decoder and a dedicated microprocessor providing paging and selective calling features. This allows you to place a call to
a specific station (Paging), and to receive calls of your choice directed only to you (Code
Squelch).
The paging and code squelch systems use two pairs of (alternately switched) CTCSS tones,
which are stored in the pager memories. Basically, your receiver remains silent until it
receives the CTCSS tone pair that matches those stored in the Receiving Pager Memory.
The squelch then opens so the caller is heard, and the paging ringer immediately sounds, if
activated. When you close the PTT key to transmit, the CTCSS tone pair that is stored in
the Transmitting Pager Memory will be transmitted automatically.
On the paged radio, the squelch will close automatically after the incoming page ends.
