Yaesu FT-60R Review

Yaesu FT-60R, Handheld VHF/UHF Transceiver

I've only had this radio for a few months. I bought it because it used the same battery and accessories as the VX-170. I needed a 70cm handheld for my role supporting backup inauguration communications and was about to buy the VX-177 when I found this radio for not much more. It worked well for that event.

I often find myself hitting the 0 key, which enables some sort of DTMF transmit function that really drives me crazy. I don't like it as much as the VX-170, but it does have a knob for the squelch.
