I picked up an FT-60R this past year and it has been a great hand held unit.
I had a tree branch claim the home brew antenna from my bumper on this year's 40's Only run - but I didn't miss a thing because I had this HT as a backup.
This is a great deal as a first radio or as HT to back up a mobile unit.
