The FC-301/D VHF is a synthesized 5-watt FM transceiver module for the amateur 2-meter band. While primarily designed for data, the unit is also suitable for voice, with selectable pre-emphasis, squelch, and audio amplifier.
Thanks to its use of two-point modulation for good low-frequency response, the FC-301/D is an excellent choice for 9600 baud data.
This radio is also available with a built-in Tracker3 series APRS tracker.
