The Yaesu FT-450D expands on the success of the Yaesu FT-450 adding new features. It employs blazing fast 400 MHz IF DSP technology to bring an array of advanced features to the operator. Transmit frequency coverage includes 160 to 6 meters. The receive range is 30 kHz to 54 MHz. Power output is 100 watts on HF and 6 meters. Operating modes include USB, LSB, CW, AM and FM. An antenna tuning system is built in!
Original price in 2010: USD 949,00
It's small, but it can and does well all that is needed
Bought new, on sale for 650 USD. Worked well out of box. What attracted me to it was it has a built in tuner, and filters. I had a Kenwood 480HX, had to add filters and a tuner for extra dollars. and that radio cost me 1400 USD. Yes it was a 200 watt radio vs 100, but realistically that is negligible. DSP and filters work well. A lot of the controls are on the front panel, rather than in hidden menus. Have used it mobile with ham sticks, and works well, has good "ears" for that use. Overall, am very pleased with it. Written June 17, 2018
