The Yaesu FT-60R is a popular VHF/UHF dualband handheld transceiver that has a solid feel and an ideal size for
portable operators. Easy to fit in one hand and/or carry in a pocket, yet it's very strong, durable, and the
buttons are both large enough and spaced well so you can easily select individual touchpad buttons without
error. Some of the lower priced generic brands are incredibly difficult to use if you have big hands, however
the Yaesu FT-60R as well as most handhelds made by Yaesu are built much better with a more solid
feel and well spaced buttons. This may not be an issue for small guys, but larger guys (such as myself)
with big, clumsy hands, this is a desirable attribute. On top of that, it's water resistant, which means
rain or shine, you don't have to worry about damaging this one.
One of the strengths of the Yaesu FT-60R handheld transceiver is its power output and battery life!
This portable ham radio has a full 5 watts of transmit power on both bands (both 2 meter and 440mhz bands) and
it has an "extended" life 1400mah battery! This meant a decent amount of power and long battery life,
out of such a small package!
Another neat feature on the Yaesu FT-60R it's EAI (Emergency Automatic Identification) which allows you to
automatically transmit your callsign in an event of an emergency in addition to its enhanced paging and encode
squelch features which you can use to select pages from only specific ham radios that are sharing the same
code. The EAI feature is particularly useful for search and rescue operations! When you set this
feature up, the party looking for the lost or injured can send a signal from their transceiver to have the
injured/disable party's radio to auto-transmit, thus their signal can be found.
