Yaesu FT-270 R/E

$195.00

After putting many radios to the test, Eagle Paragliding has determined that the most reliable radio is the Yaesu VX-270. The FT-270 is the new model (Summer 2009) that replaces the VX-170 which was our reliable radio for years. We have had little trouble with this radio and it does not fall short on any of our requirements.

  • 1400 mAh Battery Pack Yields Long Operating Time.
  • Power Saving Circuit Design; The FT-270R design includes Yaesu's exclusive power saving circuit design to ensure longer operating time that most other handhelds with comparable batteries.
  • Expanded Receiver Coverage; The receiver's frequency range is 136-174 MHz, covering many public service, marine, and government channels.

  • Keyboard Frequency Entry; Operating frequencies may be entered directly from the front panel keypad, which may also be used for quick recall of memory channels by number.
  • Weather Broadcast Channels; In the U.S. version, a dedicated special memory bank of ten NOAA Weather Channels is available, with a “Severe Weather” alert capability.
  • EAI (Emergency Automatic ID) Feature; Ideal for search-and-rescue work, the EAI feature can be commanded on so as to identify your FT-270R, and engage your PTT and microphone, remotely in an emergency situation. So if you don't check in during a search, help can be dispatched, with the automatic TX function allowing others to perform direction finding.
  • Split Tone Capability; Besides the usual CTCSS and DCS Encode/Decode features you've come to know and love on a Yaesu transceiver, the FT-270R includes a “Split Tone” capability that allows you to Encode a CTCSS tone, and Decode DCS, or vice-versa. You can also Encode (without decoding) either CTCSS or DCS.
