I have an FT-7800R and I absolutely LOVE the radio. There is one thing that the manual is very vague on though - Hypermemory..

Can someone who has figured it our or played with it educate me a little on exactly what it does and how it works?

Thanks in advance!

I have the FT-8800 and I've really enjoyed it.

Basically, the Hypermemory contains a 'whole copy' of the radio, including Memories, power levels, repeater offsets, CTCSS/DCS settings, etc.

There are several uses for this:

If you travel a lot and might need repeaters for several areas. As you approach each area, hit the hyper memory button you have associated with that city's repeaters and you've got that city in 'working' memories.

Maybe you'd like to have your 144/440 repeater settings plus a bunch of 'listen only' frequencies. Keep them in separate hypermemories.

The 8800 has two receivers. I suppose you could keep a set of left-right memories and a hypermemory that has them swapped.

More specifically, a Hypermemory contains (from the FTB8800 programming software Help):
- state of the VFOs for each band
- current VFO(s) (including power level per band)
- operating mode of the rig - VFO/memory/mtune/scanning etc
- scanning direction
- scan mode
- packet speed
- auto repeater shift state
- current set menu number and sub-menu
- current bank number (not FT-8900)
- current memory number
- bank scan linking information (not FT-8800 nor FT-8900)

So, I think the idea is to program up all 512 memories (for 8800, both sides, or 512 x 2), and place groups of frequencies in banks. Then you can assign a bank (or for 8800, a bank for each side) to a hypermemory.

Now, you can set this up from the radio; select a bank, VFO setting, Scan mode, etc; Press & Hold a hypermemory button. It'll set the configuration AT THAT TIME into a hypermemory.

If you're using programming software, (AFAIK) only the
RT Systems software can SET banks IN Hypermemories in Software. The FTB8800 doesn't (or I can't find it, as yet...).
