Yaesu FT-450D reviews

Good little radio

Yaesu FT-450D, Mobile HF/VHF Transceiver

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
