YAESU FT-60R transceiver modified for USHPA frequencies
Hands down the best made and durable radio for ultralight pilots.
Specifications: 144-148 / 430-450 MHz Dual Band Hand Held FM Transceiver - 1000 Memories - Wideband RX including the air-bands for general aviation (receive only)
Shipping time is approximately (14) days from date of order, depending on how busy we are with training. This is the most reliable, easiest to use, and best hand-held 2m transceiver out there. Its most important feature is that it will display the battery voltage when turned on. It is the only radio on the market that has this important and handy feature.
Radios for pilots should be reliable and have a good range and that is why the YAESU, ICOM, and others cost 5X of the Baofeng. There are pilots who would be alive today if they had owned a high quality radio and also knew how to operate it. It is not so simple....
When you receive your new radio, please go to this page to learn how to setup and use it without having to sort through pages and pages of the manual.

OPTIONAL This transceiver may be ordered with the YAESU handheld speaker-mic which makes radio operation handy while flying. To reduce wind noise, purchase a furry windscreen cover for the speaker-mic like this one from eBay.
