> As noted by others, the 300 allows C4FM in either VFO (upper or lower), but NOT simultaneously... it will receive only the selected one if both are active.
That should work. You just can't hear two separate C4FM transmissions at the same time, as the first one received will take priority, but you should be able to scan for AM, FM, and C4FM on both VFO's. You could also use the MCS feature that scans multiple channels very quickly.I was considering buying a 300 for the shack so I could monitor C4FM on both sides, fixed on one and scanning with the other side.
Not sure that's accurate. I don't use a Fusion set-up, but I'm pretty sure that you can configure a Portable Digital Node (PDN) with just a cable set to interface the rig with the PC... no HRI-200 necessary. Confirmed: PDN is listed in the manual as part of the feature set of the FTM-300.I just read it needs the HRI-200 as well versus just a cable to a PC running Wires-X like the 400.
