That is exactly what I want to put on the 40. If everything works and is there it's a good deal. The timing is not right for me however.

These antennas typically go for about $300 new, so $225 is a decent little savings.

Bump the thread

Looks like the seller of the IC-2800H dropped the price to $300 today. That is a steal.

That's a looking rig...I need something for the 40 but I don't think that would hold up well in a FJ40 environment...

Yeah, probably not a great choice for a FJ40. Paging Jacket! Add a Bytronics Tinytrac with GPS and you have most of a FTM-350 for about $250 less. No Bluetooth or wideband FM (broadcast) RX.

The current FT-60R is about $225, give or take. So this is not a fantastic deal if it needs a new battery, although since the original was NiCad and you can get NiMH replacements for about $30 it wouldn't be too bad if you talked him down. Also the FT-50R could take a 6 x AA holder and run (IIRC) the full 5W. So if you found that holder you could just use rechargeable AA cells and not worry about the custom pack.

Dual band amateur radio - $150 (Monument)

Yaesu FT-50R dual band hand held transceiver. This radio is practically new. Comes with a 4 AA Clamshell, car charger and the home charger. The regular batt needs to be renewed because it does not hold a charge.

Please call or Txt Tim with any questions. 719-290-3800.
