Great VHF/UHF radio

Yaesu FT-736R, Desktop VHF/UHF Transceiver

Since purchasing this radio new back in the early 90's, I've added just about every accessory to the radio I could find. I've used it for the VHF contests on 6M, 2M, 70CM, 222MHz and 1.2GHz, and it's worked just fine. Computer control for the satellites is easy.

The only major problem I've had with it is the power supply - just like other owners have found, the internal power supply quit working. I have yet to replace the bad caps - I'd rather run it off of 12V anyways.

This radio seems to be what others are compared to, and was top of the line in it's day. Modules can still be found (expect big $$$ for the 1.2GHz module), and I'm sure there's still 1,000's still in use world-wide today. Prices have significantly dropped for the basic radio - if you're looking for one, be sure of what features are included. Some out there are being sold stripped down with no PL board or the CW filter (the filter was included in my radio when I bought it). Prices for accessories can be high!

I love the radio because of the sensitivity and options available. If I could buy another one, I would!
