The FT-60R's small size allows you to take it anywhere - hiking,
skiing, or while walking around town - and its operating flexibility
brings the user many avenues of operating enjoyment. Its
incredibly tiny FNB-83 Rechargeable Nickel-Metal Hydride Battery
Pack provides up to 5 Watts of transmit power on the 144 MHz and
430 MHz Amateur Bands. Besides 144- and 430-MHz transceive
operation, the FT-60R provides receive coverage of the VHF and
UHF TV bands, the VHF AM aircraft band, and a wide range of
commercial and public safety frequencies!


New and exciting features of the FT-60R are the Emergency
Automatic ID (EAI) function, that will automatically cause your FT-
60R to transmit your callsign and engage your rigs microphone,
even if you are disabled and unable to press the PTT switch;
Enhanced Paging and Code Squelch (EPCS), that allows you to
page a particular station and only receive calls from that station, if
desired; and a security Password feature, to prevent unauthorized
use of your transceiver.

Great radio
I bought one of these hand helds as I never had a decent hand held. I bought one a week ago and have been testing it. I have to say that it performs very well, audio is very clear and signal strength is great. It is a quality radio, very sturdy and does what I need it to do. Very simple to programme, without software and very user friendly. My wife used it also as she is licensed, and commented how good it performed. So I ordered another one for her. Says it all.
Solid Performer
Probably my wisest radio buy so far. Very fast on scan, far faster than my 2900 and 857d rigs. Standard antenna gets panned by users who only read other people's opinions - it's actually a fair performer. Memories can be grouped into "banks", which is extremely useful - I change banks according to where I am, but its implementation is a little awkward, I have to reread the manual any time I need to add something or add/delete. Very handy to have alpha tags for memories - 6 characters is adequate in practice. Mine has a plug-in jack/wall-wart for charging, and no way to tell when the battery is charged - easy to overdo this if you're forgetful. I also got a Li-ion battery plus drop in charger, a very useful accessory - but don't use it for charging NMh batteries, mine's only for Li ion batteries. Later FT-60s made in China also seem to be well liked, mine is older and Japanese. This little radio's a real keeper. Oh yes - a bad point is - its base doesn't like you to sit it upright, a stupid design - but I like it enough to way offset that daft design point.
