Yes sir, Yaesu sure knows how to make excellent transceivers. Their FTA-550 Handheld VHF Transceiver is simply a continuation of their commitment to excellence.

We always wondered what FTA stands for; we were thinking “Fantastic Transceivers Association," but we are unsure. We might have to call someone to get an answer. To get a clear answer we could use the FTA-550 itself.

Of course, we have the features listed below that make the FTA-550 special:

  • The menu is easy to operate. Configure with the help of an icon driven system. Enjoy an intuitive and thus more user-friendly interface.
  • Monitor those icons and your input thanks to a sizeable 1.7" x 1.7" full dot matrix LCD display with full backlight and dimmer
  • Receiving a VOR signal, the FTA-550's display will automatically switch to the NAV band screen which shows a CDI (Course Deviation Indicator) based on the received signal.
  • This transceiver can store up to 200 memory channels. Name them using up to 15 alphanumeric characters per name for quicker retrieval.
