Yaesu FT-290R II reviews

Amazing ...


I knew this set from the 80's, these days too expensive for me to buy. This year (2011) i saw one on a Dutch ebay like website ... i bought it. It was like new and worked as new. Solid quality !!

I filled the battery-case with modern 4000 mAh D cells. For charging i bought a Ansmann 410 mobile charger ... and so i became portable:D

For less money portable SSB ... and repairable at home. Who can say that about the modern portables?

Build quality
User friendliness
Value for money
Good condition in 2011
EUR 150.00
