The Yaesu FTA-310 is a hand-held transceiver that allows you to carry clear and informative conversations sort of like this one:
kyGeek: an you transmit and receive messages on the International Aircraft Communication Band?

aesu FTA-310: ll 700mW of clean audio by means of a 1.4" diameter loudspeaker, my friend.
kyGeek: hy should customers buy you?
aesu FTA-310: The question is why shouldn't they? Just look at me! No seriously, though, through my interface, programming the channels you prefer to a convenient configuration you want can be done without frustrating your fingers or compromising your sanity. Plus, I have a great deal of useful features and specifications which can be found on this page.
Customer reads specifications
ustomer: Hey, let me add this to cart.
…All right, we admit we made up the part that included the customer. But like the above conversation advises, if you are looking for a hand-held transceiver that can get the message across, get your frequency set to the features and specifications on this page and see what the FTA-310 has to offer.
BNC Antenna Connection: Re-engineered with a standardized BNC connection the FTA-310 will now allow a quick easy connection to an external antenna giving the user greater transmit and receive range and clarity.
Exclusive 12VDC charging sleeve: The FTA-310 comes value packaged with the CD-59 charging sleeve. The CD-59 gives the operator the freedom to keep the radio powered on continuously while it is connected to a 12VDC source. The slim form fitting design allows for easy radio operation.
250 Programmable Memory Channels: 150 memory channels can be easily programmed into the FTA- 310 allowing quick easy access to frequently used channels on the aviation band. Additionally, 100 "book memory" channels can be programmed into the unit using the optional PC programming software and cable. All memory channels can be labeled with either a channel number assignment, operating frequency display, or an alpha-numeric channel name display.
Audio Pitch Control "A Yaesu Exclusive": To enhance the audio reception under varying situations the FTA-310 gives the user the option to adjust the pitch on the audio to a higher or lower pitch depending on the noise conditions. This feature greatly improves radio performance in noisy environments.
NOAA Weather: The FTA-310 can receive all 10 NOAA weather broadcast frequencies. The Automatic Active Weather Channel Locator (a Yaesu exclusive) automatically scans for active NOAA weather stations in your area when WX band is selected. The FTA-310 includes a special feature that sounds an alarm when the special "Severe Weather" alert tone is received from a weather broadcast station. This can warn you of potentially hazardous flying conditions.
Submersible Construction: The FTA-310 was engineered for safety and durability. The radio is built around a solid die cast aluminum chassis with heavy duty gaskets throughout, allowing the radio to be submerged up to 3' for 30 minutes (JIS7 waterproofing standard) making this the most durable aviation transceiver on the market today.
