Really can’t say enough about the Yaesu FT-60.  The reception is great, The rubber duck antenna works great, Nice layout and a large screen. The construction is solid. Pulling it out of the box and feeling the weight and solid construction of the radio gives you confidence that it’s not cheaply made.  It was fairly easy to program a frequency in, set the tones for a repeater, and throw yourself out there to talk to someone. I was amazed how easy it was. I’ve used the radio extensively since it arrived in the mail and am pleasantly surprised at how the lithium batteries are holding up and how long they last. The memory capacity on this little HT is amazing and the fact Yaesu still makes the radio after all these years is impressive.
