European version of the FT-65 can listen to PMR446, but not transmit on that band. Transmission on PMR446 is only allowed with PMR446-certified radios (fixed antenna, TX-power limited to 0.5W, ...), which the FT-65E is clearly not.
It's however technically possible to use a Yaesu FT-65E on PMR446:
- Expand TX-range of a Yaesu FT-65E outside the ham-bands using this guide here.
- 8 : CTCSS : set up the same as a PMR446-radio. On Kenwood PMR446 handsets, this will be called "Quiet Talk (QT)" setting, but it's effectively the same thing.
- 29 : SQL Type : TSQL
- 32 : TX Power : LOW
- 37 : WIDE/NAR : NARROW (+/-2.5kHz deviation instead of +/-5kHz) (Optional)
- Set the TX-frequency equal to that of a PMR446-radio.
- analog FM: about 500m range in residential area
- manual can be found here.
- NiMH batteries don't last very long.
